NFL Football Picks/Bets - The Playoffs - Championship Weekend

6-0 last week! Is it any question why I love the playoffs?

New York Jets +3½ (-105) over Pittsburgh Steelers
The last 3 times a team returned to the AFC Championship after having lost the previous year, they won. I'm not even better the Jets to win this game, I'm just betting that they cover the spread. The Jets also won their last match up in December. They were able to run on the Steelers D, and even though Polamalu is playing, he doesn't look completely healthy. Mark Sanchez has been solid through out the playoffs, but it's the Jets defense that will win this game. Over the last couple of weeks, they've confused, hurried and sacked Manning and Brady multiple times. Now they face Ben Roethlisberger who isn't as good a QB as either of those two. Big Ben was also sacked 6 times last week. I'm expecting the same to happen tomorrow.

Which team will record more sacks in the Jets/Steelers game ? New York Jets -1 (+110)
They both have good defenses, and the Steelers O-line is riddled with injuires.

I'll be back with more later. You can find this prop bet and other at Bodog.

Good Luck
