NFL 2022 Conference Championship Picks And Insights

The Super Wild Card Weekend was a good one on these pages, as our Picks, Opinions and Leans went 5-1 ATS on side selections including 2-0 on Picks. Last week in the Divisional Round, we went 2-0 on side Picks and 3-1 overall on side selections of Picks, Opinions and Leans and 1-0 on our Totals pick on Chiefs/Bills over in Kansas City’s thrilling 42-36 win. Now it’s on to the NFL 2022 Conference Championship games, and we have a Totals Pick but just Opinions and Leans on side plays.
