🏆 Fantasy For Good

One last thing about our Seven Stakes game mode. We wanted to add in a charity component so here’s the deal: The LEAGUE that scores the most total points in our Seven Stakes contest will have a donation made by Champions Round to the charity of the league’s choosing. We will donate $1,000 in their names.

Yes, the goal is to beat your league mates. However, if you’re out of the running, you can still cheer on bets all the way through the Super Bowl. We’re all about crowning champions, but we can help uplift some folks along the way. That’s ultimately what we’re all about.

💰 Golden Nuggets — Conference Title Predictions

Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Green Bay Packers (-3.5; O/U 51.5)

Tom Brady vs. Aaron Rodgers. We’re talking about two of the five best QBs of all time. This should be a classic matchup. The Packers should have the advantage being at home. They’ve been nearly flawless this season and seem to be on a mission. But let me ask you this: Do YOU want to bet against Tom Brady in the playoffs?

I foresee a very tight game. The Packers will surely have answers as to why the Bucs destroyed them in Tampa earlier this season. They’ll be able to deal with the blitz and score points. The Bucs should be able to move the ball also, especially if they depend on their passing game. Their running game should have some issues in Green Bay.

This is going to be a tight one. I lean towards the over and the Packers to sneak it out. I do think the weather will ultimately help them advance to the Super Bowl.

Prediction: Packers 31 — Bucs 30

Buffalo Bills vs. Kansas City Chiefs (-3; O/U 56)

The Bills are the better TEAM. I feel pretty confident about this given how the past two months have gone for both teams. However, if Patrick Mahomes is healthy, I don’t honestly know how you can bet against him in KC. The Chiefs are 24–1 in his last 25 starts. You read that correctly. They’re nearly unbeatable.

Mahomes is still in concussion protocol, but all seems well in his recovery and he should be on the field. The Chiefs took care of business in Buffalo against the Bills earlier this season, in a very odd game. The Chiefs defense has its issues against the run, but the Bills depend heavily on the passing game. That’s not much of a concern.

This should be another close one, but there’s no way I’m picking against Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs. They may not be the better TEAM, but they have more superstars. That matters in close games.

Prediction: Chiefs 27 — Bills 24

Enjoy the two title games this weekend and get your Seven Stakes picks in now!
