Here's my picks against the spread for the NFC and AFC championship games this weekend.

The NFC game has the LA Rams against the New Orleans Saints, with the Saints favored by 3. Tough call. Take the Saints. They showed determination overcoming the Eagles last weekend, making a comeback after being down two touchdowns. They're also the number one seed. There! I just convinced myself.

The AFC game is the New England Patriots against the Kansas City Chiefs. The Chiefs are favored by 3. There's only one thought I have going into this particular game: KC's QB Patrick Mahomes is a rookie. Yes, he's put up great numbers. But I expect Bill Belichick to have something overwhelming for Mahomes. And Tom Brady's no slouch. Take the Pats!
