07-08 NFL Conference Championship Picks

Only three games left this year! And they should be some great games!

  • San Diego vs. New England (-14) (46.5 O/U): Do you think the weather in Boston will be anything like what the Chargers are leaving in San Diego? San Diego beat Indy in perfect conditions (in the dome), but this won't be ideal conditions. The high for Sunday is 25 degrees. FYI, it's supposed to be in the 60's in San Diego. I haven't seen yet. Is Rivers playing? If he doesn't (or isn't 100% ready to go), it could be a long day for L.T. with no one else for the defense to focus on but the NFL's leading rusher.
  • New York Giants vs. Green Bay (-7) (40 O/U): The Frozen Tundra will be in full effect on Sunday. The high is 6 degrees. Oh, and flurries. I think I remember a few flurries this past weekend as well! How will Eli Manning cope with the cold? He's not exactly living in the Caribbean, but his passer rating historically has dropped with the temperature. Not so for Mr. Favre. I just feel sorry for his receivers. Imagine catching one of Favre's rockets in 6 degree weather. That's got to sting just a bit.

I'll take Green Bay (-310) for my "Lock Solid" pick this week. Lambeau Field has a reputation for a reason!

I'll be watching these games this weekend - every minute in all it's HD glory. Check back next week to see how I did with my picks.
