Place Your Bets: Championship Weekend

If you live in Nevada, Oregon, Montana or Delaware, you're in luck. Otherwise, go to Canada or Europe and get your bet on for the NFL weekend! All games are Sunday unless otherwise noted.

1. New England at Denver (+3.0) — This game is really hard to call, and I keep going back and forth. If Tom Brady is on, Peyton Manning, in his current state, can't sniff Brady. But Brady has had his share of struggles in Denver, and the Broncos have the best pass defense in the NFL by quite a bit. Did we mention the Patriots don't even pretend to be capable of running the football? Brady is the greatest quarterback of all time, regardless of what happens Sunday, but I think we might have to lean toward Manning and Denver for this one, especially since they're three-point home underdogs.

2. Arizona at Carolina (-3.0) — These are the two best teams in the NFL and the winner will win Super Bowl 50. Ultimately, I'm going with the Panthers because the Cardinals have suffered a couple of losses on defense, including the Honey Badger, and Carson Palmer has never been good in a playoff game, including last week. If he does that against the Panthers, it's lights out Cardinals. Oh, and Cam Newton is just playing too well right now.

Last week: 2-1-1. 2015 season: 35-40-3.
