1/19 VIP Picks

What a terrible Saturday. We got burnt on the Celtics with the Walker and Brown news coming out later in the day. NHL went 1-1 and the Sixers win but missed the spread by 1. Atleast we have the AFC & NFC Championships today to close out our week!

Teaser:

Chiefs (-1) / 49ers (-1.5) - I think the Titans magical run will come to an end today. It’s tough to imagine betting against Pat Mahomes and the Chiefs after what they did last weekend. 51-7 after falling behind 24-0 in the 1st quarter. The Titans beat the Chiefs earlier this season but that was Pat Mahomes first game back from injury. Mahomes still threw for 446 yards and 3 touchdowns in that game. The key for the Chiefs will be to slow down Derrick Henry who ran for 188 yards in the first meeting. Henry has run right through the Patriots and Ravens to get to this game. I’m still confident in Mahomes to outscore the Titans even if Henry has another BIG game. I don’t see the Chiefs losing at home today. Then we have the 49ers hosting the Packers and the 49ers beat the Packers 37-8 in the first meeting. The Packers looked overmatched in that game. This 49ers defense held Aaron Rodgers to 104 passing yards. The 49ers jumped out to a 23-0 lead in that game and never looked back. Look for them to jump out to another early lead at home tonight and they should come away with the victory. Pat Mahomes vs Jimmy Garoppolo in the Super Bowl.

Player Prop

Derrick Henry Total Rushing Attempts Over (23.5) 

He had 30 and 34 carries in the Titans first 2 playoff games. Look for them to feed him again today. Overrr 23.5 rushing attempts for him.

Player Prop:

Pat Mahomes Total Touchdown Passes Over (2.5)

Guy tossed 5 last week. He had 3 in the first meeting between these two teams. Hard to imagine he doesn’t throw atleast 3 today with the way this offense looked last week.
