One of the best sports weekends of the entire year is here, with the NFL Conference Championship games plus great college basketball and NBA games. Meche and I have put together some of our favorite betting odds from the weekend, just in case you’re looking for advice on where to turn.
Chiefs vs Bengals
Matt: Travis Kelce First Touchdown Scorer (+650)
Travis Kelce has been Mahomes’ #1 target all season long. I think the Chiefs will try to go to him early and often.
James: Ja’Marr Chase Anytime Touchdown (+100)
Chase has been a Chiefs killer every time he’s played Kansas City. I believe he’ll find pay dirt once again and helps send Cincinnati to the Super Bowl.
Eagles vs 49ers
Matt: Christian McCaffery Anytime Touchdown (-130)
Run CMC has been on a tear since being acquired by the Niners, especially in the playoffs. He’ll get back in the endzone yet again this Sunday, as CMC brings San Fran to the Super Bowl.
James: AJ Brown Anytime Touchdown (+150)
Last week the Eagles didn’t need to go to Brown as often in last week’s blowout as he ended the game with just three catches for 22 yards. Jalen Hurts will need to throw to Brown more in this game versus to the 49ers in a game where the number of touchdowns in this game could be scarce.
Pelicans vs Wizards
Matt: CJ McCollum Over 28.5 Pts + Assists (-115)
McCollum has been the leader of this group since Zion and BI were out long-term with injuries. BI is back, but still knocking the rust off, so CJ will probably have another big night.
James: Kyle Kuzma 20+ points (-460)
Washington traded Rui Hachimura the other day and Kristaps Porzinigs is listed as out. Kuzma leads the team in scoring per game with 22.2. So, if the Wizards want to win, they will likely need at least that and more.
LSU vs Texas Tech
Matt: Under 131.5 (-105)
The Red Raiders have only eclipsed 70 twice in the last five games, while the Tigers have struggled to put an offense together all season. Don’t be surprised if this contest is a 65-57 type of game.
James: LSU Moneyline (+126)
Neither team is doing hot right now as LSU is on a seven-game losing streak while Texas Tech is on an eight-game losing streak. The Red Raiders haven’t won on the road and this game will be in the PMAC.
Louisiana vs Georgia Southern
Matt: Louisiana -9.5 (-102)
Five of the Cajuns’ seven wins in conference play have been by nine points or more and I don’t think this game will be any different. Jordan Brown will have a big night and Louisiana wins big.
James: Louisiana Moneyline (-465)
Jordan Brown is supposed to return after missing his last game due to an illness, which will provide a huge spark for the Cajuns to extend their win streak to eight games tonight at home.
Matt: Texas vs Tennessee: Tennessee by 1-10 (+168)
This Top-10 matchup should be one for the books, with both teams playing strong ball as of late. Tennessee has been on fire over their last few games and the Vols are wearing throwbacks today, so look for Tennessee to pick up another big win.
James: Lakers vs Celtics: Over 237 total points
These are two high-flying offenses as the last time the Lakers failed to put up at least 110 was January 9th versus the Nuggets. Boston puts up almost 118 themselves as this game could go to overtime.
