Some teams raise to great levels in the playoffs, so far the same can be said for me and my Locks. After enduring a 1-3 week the locks are 34-25-2. time to get a cup of Death Wish Coffee and get back to work for the Conference Championship games.

NFC Championship game will match the young gun Rams versus the seasoned dare I say grizzled Saints. Even though the majority of people want to make this about Drew Brees and the high flying Saints in reality the Saints are a physical ground and pound offense that plays solid defense. Todd Gurley has been next level as of late but much like a boxer wearing out his opponent with a series of body blows I expect Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram to wear out the Rams defense and Brees to Michael Thomas just enough to win this one for the Saints. N.O. -3 UNDER 57

AFC Championship is the tale of two cities. New England is basically a dynasty that has been to three of the last four Super Bowls and won two of those. Meanwhile Kansas City hasn’t been to a Super Bowl since 1969 and hasn’t seen the AFC Championship game since they lost to the Bills in 1993. All of that is the past though. This is the new Chiefs with Patrick Mahomes! They score touchdowns in bunches and Arrowhead will be ROCKING!!!! I’ll take the Pats +3...Tom Brady and Bill Belichick get to play the underdog card??? Are you serious?! Low scoring with bad weather? This has Pats written all over it!!! Pats + 3 Under 56
