Place Your Bets: Championship Weekend



    If you live in Nevada, Oregon, Montana or Delaware, you're in luck. Otherwise, go to Canada or Europe, or those rogues in New Jersey and get your bet on for the NFL weekend!

    1. San Francisco (-4.5) at Atlanta, Sunday, 2 p.m. — This is a tough one as the 49ers are a pretty big road favorite this deep in the playoffs, but the 49ers seem to be just that good. The Falcons escaped by the skin of their teeth at home last week, and I don't think they'll be able to do it again this week. But, look out 49ers fans, we thought the Falcons had no running game and then they went and had a nice day on the ground against Seattle last week. So you never know. But go with your gut here. The 49ers are the best overall team remaining.

    2. Baltimore at New England (-8.5), Sunday, 5:30 p.m. — This one is tougher. These two teams tend to play close games, and Baltimore looked great last week against Denver. Joe Flacco looked elite. But the Patriots looked awfully tough too. I think this is another close game between these two teams, but in the end the Patriots will pull away with a late score and Ray Lewis' career will come to an end.

    2012 Playoffs:6-2. 2012 season:53-39.
