It’s the most wonderful time of the year! No, not Christmas—although you can look forward to the NBA’s Christmas matchups. No, the most wonderful time of year is actually marked by singing birds, sprouting flowers, and the nail-biting, sweat-dripping, expletive-inducing matchups of Division I men’s college basketball.
Starting with the AFC Title Game, Kansas City is coming off a wild finish against Buffalo and just narrowly won to advance. Lorenzo sees the possibility of the Chiefs falling to an early deficit as they rebound from last week's win. Cincinnati on the other hand, is coming into the game on an extra days rest. The Bengals are 6-0 against the spread in their last six and 5-1 against the spread this season when listed as road underdogs. Lorenzo likes the Chiefs on the moneyline, but the Bengals to cover the spread. Because both of the these offensives are so explosive, and how quickly both teams can find the end zone, Lorenzo expects a high scoring game when Joe Burrow and Patrick Mahomes square off. Lorenzo likes the OVER in the AFC Championship game. In the NFC Title Game, two head coaches who know each-other's coaching styles very well and who play in the same division, will face off for the third time this season. The 49ers beat the Rams twice in the regular season and are the hottest team still standing. It also is very hard to beat a team three times in a season. Jimmy Garappolo needs to avoid crucial mistakes and manage the game. Lorenzo likes the Rams on the moneyline, but the 49ers to cover the spread.
Conference Championship weekend is here. Who wants it more? The San Francisco 49ers will travel in state to face the Los Angeles Rams. Both teams have showcased their strengths on both sides of the ball this season. From the betting side, both teams have been great to be the moneyline on. Which team will advance to the Super Bowl? On Site reporter Mike Jones provides insight on this division rival. Both teams have great knowledge of each other, great familiarity, and great history. In their last six meetings, the 49ers are 6-0 in head to head matchups. All time since 2017, the Rams have won just three times. Turnovers will be a crucial factor, along with ball security and physicality, when both teams meet on Sunday. Matthew Stafford threw two interceptions in each game in the regular season against San Francisco. Cooper Kupp is the X-Factor. Along with being a legitimate MVP candidate, he lead the league in receptions, receiving yards, and touchdown catches. Kupp posted great numbers in their last matchup against the 49ers. Another key player to watch is Deebo Samuel and got the better end of the first two outcomes against the Rams this season.
January 26th 2020 began as most days do. But, by the time it ended, it would be one of the saddest for the basketball community. There was a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California in the late hours of the morning, and there would not be any survivors. Among the eight people aboard were John, Keri and Alyssa Altobelli, Christina Mauser, Sarah and Payton Chester, and the pilot, Ara Zobayan, Gianna and Kobe Bryant.
The Buffalo Bills travel to take on the Kansas City Chiefs in the Divisional Round of the playoffs. Expect a ton of points from both of these high powered offenses. Buffalo made history in last week's playoff win against New England, scoring a touchdown on each of its seven possessions. Both teams are evenly matched and should go down to the wire. Bills beat reporter Sal Maiorana is on site to break down the matchup. Buffalo travels to Kansas City for the third time this calendar year to play the Chiefs on Sunday Night. In Week 5 of this season, the Bills beat the Chiefs on Sunday Night Football, 38-20. Last year, Kansas City beat Buffalo 38-24 in the AFC Championship game. Now the rubber match between the two for the birth of the AFC Championship on the line Sunday night. Two of the best offenses in the league and two of the best quarterbacks in the league will square off head to head. Mahomes and Allen both threw for five touchdown passes in their wild card round victories last week, playing at the top of the their games. Maiorana sees the Bills having a slight advantage with their defense. Buffalo has gotten familiarity with Mahomes and knows what he wants to do with the football. They will try to slow down Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce, with their top ranked defense. If Josh Allen and his offense plays the way it did last week, Maiorana sees Buffalo coming out on top against the Chiefs.
The Green Bay Packers are coming off their first round bye and are the healthiest they have been all season long. Aaron Rodgers is surgical at home, especially when coming off a bye. Now although the 49ers have been red-hot in recent play, their two best defenders, Bosa and Warner, were injured vs the Cowboys and may be slowed down against Green Bay. The Packers also went 7-1 against the spread this season at home. Lorenzo is locking in the Packers and the spread. Onto the AFC, Lorenzo likes the Buffalo Bills in an upset. Buffalo played their most complete game of the entire season last week against New England. The Bills have been clicking on all cylinders and are 4-1 against the spread over their last five. Their offense is comparable with Kansas City's and Buffalo has the edge on defense. The Chiefs have been unreliable at home, while the Bills excel on the road as underdogs. Lorenzo is locking int the Bills to win and to cover the spread. The Los Angeles Rams vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers has everything in the making for an offensive showdown. Tom Brady knows how to pick apart defenses and with the Rams electric offense, Lorenzo sees this game as a shootout. In week 3, the Rams beat the Bucs and 58 points were scored. Although Lorenzo likes the Bucs in this matchup, he is locking in the OVER in total points scored.
Point spreads are becoming more and more mainstream. Scott Van Pelt has a segment on his SportsCenter show titled “Bad Beats” where he shows teams either covering or failing to cover the spread during the last moments of a game. Bill Simmons’s popular podcast has a weekly segment, “Guess the Lines,” where he tries to guess the NFL point spreads for the week. Point spreads are everywhere.
How do you know if you’re ready to get into sports betting? If you’ve done your research and you know the best teams, you might be ready to turn that knowledge into some fun—and some cold, hard cash.
Are your bets ready? Start with a moneyline bet on the Colts (they’ll win, but they haven’t covered the spread all year). Parlay the Niners and the Chiefs (they should both dominate). The point spread on the Broncos is too high, so tease them with the Saints to bring it down. It’s a tough call between the Bucs and the Bills, but both offenses are hot, so put some money on the over.
For a long time, it was illegal to bet on sports in most of the U.S., but times are changing—and so are the laws in many states. As of 2018, the Supreme Court lifted a federal ban on sports betting which has paved the way for many states to legalize it, with more likely to follow. The days of having to go to Vegas to place a bet are long gone.
