Rank #9: The Ultimate Conference Championship Breakdown

Podcast cover

Matthew Freedman and Chris Raybon break down both NFL Conference Championship matchups from both betting and DFS angles. Raybon believes the NFC Championship game will likely be decided by how Wade Phillips deals with Michael Thomas -- who absolutely torched Marcus Peters in their regular season matchup.

They go back-and-forth hypothesizing about the nearly-infinite number of ways Bill Belichick may game-plan for the Chiefs offense; but, they mutually agree that the Patriots aren't necessarily built to play from behind and must avoid a shootout at all costs.
