Jay’s Plays NFL picks: 2017 AFC and NFC Championship predictions, bettor’s guide

Ernesto the Prediction Iguana went .500 last week, 2-2 over all, 0-2 in teasers, putting the playoff record at 5-2-1 overall, 1-2-1 in teasers. That puts the season totals at 66-23-3 overall, 23-15-3 in teasers, a solid total. Here’s this week’s winner – and remember what Paulie Walnuts said about gambling on the Sopranos, “Bet wi’ ya ‘ead…no over it...”

GREEN LIGHT



Packers (+10.5) at FALCONS
PATRIOTS (+0.5) vs Steelers

I hear Aaron Rodgers is wanted in Arlington for the murder of 53 Cowboys. Then again, falling behind 21-3 is a self-inflicted wound. Still, no matter how talented the Falcons offense, they can’t spot Rodgers 10 in a game the Packers might win outright.

Ride the Patriots. The Steelers have never found an answer for Tom Brady, even since 2001!
