NFL Championship Round 2015.

David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports

Championship round weekend of the 2015 NFL Playoffs is here. With only four teams left, the winners of these games will represent their respective conference in Super Bowl XLIX. The second game on Sunday takes place for the AFC Championship title. The Indianapolis Colts will be on the road take on the New England Patriots.

Prediction:

It's never a very smart idea to bet against the New England Patriots at home. The Patriots are 17-1 SU in their last 18 home games. The one loss came when the Patriots pulled their starters in a meaningless Week 17 game at the end of 2014.

The Colts are 3-7 SU in their last 10 games as road underdogs (4-6 ATS). They went 5-3 on the road in regular season along with beating the Broncos in Denver last week. Tom Brady will be a much tougher test than an injured Peyton Manning.

By comparison, I do think the Colts have a better chance of beating the Patriots than the Packers do beating the Seahawks. I just don't think Indianapolis has what it takes to beat New England. The Patriots stomped the Colts in their house earlier in the season. They did it using a running back no one had ever heard of (Jonas Gray!) and no one has heard from since. They can do it again. I like the Patriots to win and cover as seven point favorites here: 35 to 23.
