It’s Conference Championship time this weekend and if the action on Sunday is anywhere near as exciting as last week’s games I’m going to have to take Monday off.
Pat and Kenny take you through both games, giving you their usual expert mix of insight, stats and banter. There’s also another £50 free bet to be won.
First up is the NFC Championship where the Atlanta Falcons host the San Francisco 49ers (8pm, Sky Sports 2). Most of the money was on Green Bay last weekend but Colin Kaepernick’s record-setting rushing performance turned that game on its head. Can he find the same gaps against an Atlanta side which almost collapsed to defeat in the second half against Seattle?
Following that we have the AFC Championship between the New England Patriots and the Baltimore Ravens (11.30pm Sky Sports 2), a repeat of last season’s game. Tom Brady will be the focus of attention in the build-up but Joe Flacco has shown he can make the big plays when the pressure is on. This is going to be a lot closer than the betting suggests…unless the Ravens defence starts to show its collective age.
