Betr Picks for Conference Championships

Kansas City Chiefs at Baltimore Ravens

We are trying to turn $100 into $4,900 with this 49x boosted entry slip for the Chiefs-Ravens game.

Rashod Bateman MORE than 3.5 Receptions

Our wide receiver guru Jordan Vanek is bullish on Rashod Bateman’s matchup this week. He ran a route on 72 percent of dropbacks last week, while Odell Beckham barely played. This pick is boosted and also correlates nicely with our stance on Lamar Jackson.

Justin Tucker MORE than 1.5 Field Goals Made

Justin Tucker has more than 1.5 field goals in exactly half of his games this season. The real kicker here (no pun intended) is the Kansas City Chiefs defense, which allowed the second-fewest points per game during the regular season. It’s tough to see the Chiefs completely stopping the Baltimore Ravens' offense, but they should slow them down in the red zone.

Lamar Jackson MORE than 212.5 Passing Yards

Lamar Jackson averaged 230 passing yards per game during the regular season. However, the Chiefs should score some points against the Ravens, given it’s Patrick Mahomes in the playoffs.

The Ravens allowed at least 17 points in nine Jackson starts this year. In seven of those nine games, Jackson surpassed 212.5 passing yards. Jackson also gets TE Mark Andrews back this week.

Harrison Butker MORE than 1.5 Field Goals Made

Harrison Butker made at least two field goals in 12 of 19 games this season (63 percent). The Chiefs' offense struggled for much of the year, and Mahomes threw the fewest touchdowns per game of his career.

Isiah Pacheco LESS than 86.5 Rushing + Receiving Yards

Isiah Pacheco had fewer than 86.5 total yards in half of his games this season. We lean toward the less column because the Ravens have one of the NFL’s best overall defenses. Pacheco also didn’t practice on Wednesday due to an ankle/toe injury, which could limit his explosiveness.

Patrick Mahomes MORE than 11.5 Yards Longest Rush

Patrick Mahomes has a run of at least 12 yards in 11 of 18 games. Chiefs receivers will struggle to get open against Baltimore’s secondary, so we should see another one or two long runs from Mahomes as he tries to extend plays.

Last week, we hit on a 9x entry slip, turning $50 into $450 from the Buccaneers-Lions game. If you want to play along, our promo code 33rdTeam. New users get a 100% deposit match up to $500 when using promo code 33rdTeam at sign-up. Deposit $100 into your account and you’ll now have $200. Deposit $500 into your account to have $1000. Betr’s deposit match is 5x higher than the industry standard for picks apps.

Detroit Lions at San Francisco 49ers

Jahmyr Gibbs MORE than 75.5 Rushing + Receiving Yards

If the Detroit Lions want to beat the San Francisco 49ers, they’ll need explosive plays. Jahmyr Gibbs has a case as the NFL’s best big-play threat at running back, and he’s been heavily involved in the passing game in the playoffs, despite the Lions winning both games.

He has at least four receptions for 40 yards in each game, Now he heads into San Francisco, where the 49ers are full touchdown favorites in the betting markets. Jared Goff will need to pass, and Gibbs has a 50-60-yard upside through receiving. In the run game, he has at least eight carries in his past 15 games, too.

David Montgomery LESS than 44.5 Rushing Yards

David Montgomery has slowed down in recent weeks after a hot start, and he continues to cede major work to Gibbs. Montgomery has just 10 carries for 40 or fewer yards in two of his past three, and with the Lions likely trailing in this one, Montgomery is in for a reduced role.

Jameson Williams MORE than 16.5 Yards Longest Catch

Jameson Williams, like Gibbs, will be counted on for a big play or two if Detroit hopes to keep this game competitive. The Lions' offensive line can mitigate the 49ers' pass rush, giving Goff time to find Williams.

Williams has a reception of at least 24 yards in two of his past three games, and the 49ers quietly allowed the 13th-most receptions of at least 17 yards this season (29).

Brock Purdy MORE than 273.5 Passing Yards

The Lions are a playoff-caliber team overall, but their pass defense is toward the bottom of the barrel. The Lions have allowed opponents to throw for at least 345 yards in their past five games. Brock Purdy was the league’s most efficient passer in 2023, and he can shred this defense on Sunday.

George Kittle MORE than 24.5 Yards Longest Catch

George Kittle has a reception of at least 25 yards in 10 of his past 14 games. The Lions struggle to limit big plays, and Kittle has an elite five yards per route run against the primary coverages the Lions will likely run.
