NFL Conference Championships ready to declare Superbowl XLV matchup

AFC Championship Game

New York Jets @ Pittsburgh Steelers Sun. Jan. 23rd 2011 6:30pm EST

The Pittsburgh Steelers and the New York Jets are set to go head-to-head this weekend and what could turn out to be a dogfight from start to finish. Both of these teams have two of the best defenses in the league today and are known for shutting down some of the most potent offenses in the NFL.

Even though the Pittsburgh Steelers were able to get the best of their bitter division rival Baltimore Ravens last weekend, the New York Jets have been arguably one most impressive teams in the playoffs thus far as they have been able to beat two of the greatest quarterbacks of all-time in consecutive weeks by taking down Peyton Manning in the first round and getting the best of Tom Brady last weekend.

It is always tough to pick a winner when a game is dictated by the defense like this one will be, but I believe the Jets are the better all around team coming into this matchup and should get the best of the Steelers regardless of their playoff experience in the past.

Ben Roethlisberger is as tough to stop as any quarterback in this league with his ability to avoid tackles and extend plays, but the Jets defenses up to the task and should contain the two-time Super Bowl champion quarterback this weekend. Below are the latest odds from online sportsbooks.

BetDSI Sportsbook:
Spread: New York Jets +3.5 & Pittsburgh Steelers -3.5
Moneyline: New York Jets +180 & Pittsburgh Steelers -210
Over/Under: New York Jets 110 over & Pittsburgh Steelers 110 under (38)

NFC Championship Game

Green Bay Packers @ Chicago Bears Sun. Jan. 23rd 2011 3pm EST

The NFL is chock-full of division rivalries that can be extremely entertaining during the regular season, but in the NFC championship game one of the most bitter rivalries in the NFL will take place as the Green Bay Packers will head to the Windy City to take on the NFC North division champion Chicago Bears.

It is no secret that there is no love lost between these two division rivals, but this time around the Super Bowl appearances on the line which takes this rivalry up a notch as this will be arguably one of the biggest games in franchise history for both of these teams.

Even though this game will be played at Soldier Field in Chicago, the Green Bay Packers have been given the edge as they have a -3.5 point spread in their favor coming into the NFC Championship game.

Despite the Chicago Bears defense been as hard to score one as any team in league, I believe the Green Bay Packers have what it takes on offense to get the best of his lockdown defense and should advance to the Super Bowl. Below are the odds for this weekend’s incredible NFL football betting matchup.

BetDSI Sportsbook:
Spread: Green Bay Packers -3.5 & Chicago Bears +3.5
Moneyline: Green Bay Packers -200 & Chicago Bears +170
