NFL Conference Championship Weekend Odds And Ends

What is a great Sunday of football can sometimes mean a tough weekend for those that enjoy putting some action on the games. We took a look at some of the odds on this weekend's games, and the numbers show that while the Packers and Steelers remain favorites, both games are tough to call.

Quote From Sportsbook Manager Richard Gardner

"There is a constant flow of money coming in on Green Bay which opened at -3 and is now at -3.5. The total has been steady all week at 44 points and are seeing a lean towards people betting the under. The Jets are 3.5 point dogs in Pittsburgh even though they beat them there earlier in the year and this is a much tougher matchup to bet on it seems as we are taking money on both sides of this spread. The total in this game opened at 38.5 and has moved up slightly to 39 since we did see some smart money bet on the over. I think both these games are tough to call especially since all 4 teams can play very tough defense."
