[VIDEO] 2019 AFC Championship Breakdown ft. Scully and Shapiro

Scott Shapiro and James Scully come together to offer a tight run down of the 2019 AFC Championship game featuring the New England Patriots and Kansas City Chiefs. This is the first time in eons where the Patriots are underdogs, and the narrative of late has been around the frigid, arctic blast that is supposed to roll through Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday. Who's got the advantage? The New England Patriots have been doubted before, including last week where many thought [...]

[VIDEO] 2019 NFC Championship Betting Preview ft. Scully and Shapiro

Our very own Scott Shapiro and James Scully join forces to discuss the 2019 NFC Championship betting lines. The New Orleans Saints host the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday, January 20th at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. The home bound Saints are 3.5-point favorites after blasting their way past the Philadelphia Eagles in a tight, divisional playoff game last weekend. Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Rams made short work of the Dallas Cowboys on route to the 2019 NFC Championship game, securing coach [...]

Scott Shapiro’s AFC Championship Game Analysis – New England Patriots at Kansas City Chiefs

Championship Sunday continues with another rematch of a high-scoring contest that took place during the middle of the 2018 NFL season. The difference, though, is that the loser of the regular season showdown is now the host with New England visiting Kansas City with a Super Bowl berth on the line. When the Chiefs visited the Patriots on Sunday night in Week 6 it was all New England early, but ended up being a tight one late. Probable MVP Patrick [...]

2019 AFC Championship Betting – Can Chiefs Hold As Favorites Against Patriots?

The New England Patriots and Kansas City Chiefs meet at Arrowhead Stadium in the 2019 AFC Championship betting battle we've all been waiting for, and the weather could play a pivotal role. The total has dropped from the opener of 57 to 55, and a winter storm ‘arctic blast’ is scheduled to hit Kansas City throughout the weekend with a wintry mix of 1-3 inches of snow and added rain settling in the area. There could be some clearing Sunday, [...]

2019 NFC Championship Betting – LA Rams vs. New Orleans Saints -3.5

The 2019 NFC Championship betting matchup take place this Sunday and wouldn’t you know it? The four highest-scoring teams in the league battle it out for the golden ticket to Super Bowl 53. In the AFC, the highest-scoring team in the NFL, the Kansas City Chiefs, host the fourth highest-scoring team, the New England Patriots, as natural home favorites. Before KC-New England, the 2019 NFC Championship betting showcase features the Los Angeles Rams (32.9 points per) against the New Orleans [...]

Scott Shapiro’s NFC Championship Game Analysis- Los Angeles Rams at New Orleans Saints

The first of two rematches on Championship Sunday in the National Football League pits the two-seeded Los Angeles Rams against the top-seeded New Orleans Saints, and like their first encounter, this contest is in New Orleans at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, but unlike that first game, I do not anticipate this being as high-scoring as it was in Week 9 when both teams peaked on the offensive side of the ball. The Rams were the early favorites to win the Super [...]

Nick Foles Has Earned The Right To Control His Destiny

The Philadelphia Eagles aren’t trading Carson Wentz. When Doug Pederson said that Wentz is their starting quarterback, he meant it. That's not the issue in Philadelphia, and it never really was. Finding a franchise quarterback is exceptionally tough and Wentz has all the tools (with a few caveats I'll get to in a bit). So instead, the discussion turns to the immediate future of Nick Foles. And let's be clear on this - the question is purely about whether or not [...]

Updated 2019 Super Bowl Futures – Rams Are Technically “The Longshot”

The recently updated 2019 Super Bowl futures essentially took the prices heading in to last week, and shaved somewhere between 25 and 40 percent off the top. The math checks out, but what's perhaps the most interesting element is just how tight these numbers are. There aren't any true longshots. There are no, crazy, underdog stories. Even the betting lines themselves are hovering around the natural home line, with the Saints posting as -3.5 favorites at home against the Rams, [...]

Scully’s NFL Free Picks – Divisional Playoffs Sunday
