Picking the right color drink in fun Super Bowl prop Can Bill Belichick avoid another…

The NFC Championship Game is a rematch of the 45-35 shootout between the Rams and Saints in Week 9. The game has a total set at 56 points, and MyBookie is giving Fantasy football players another opportunity to bet on their favorite stars.

Drew Brees was lights out in that Week 9 matchup, throwing for 346 yards and four touchdowns. But before we break down his Fanatasy prop for the NFC championship, let’s take a look at MyBookie’s scoring system:
*All odds taken Jan 20
The Saints have an absurd 29.5-point implied team total and after watching Brees carve up the Rams in Week 9, it’s safe to assume that New Orleans will be attacking through the air once again.
Brees is completing 75.9% of his passes at home this season and has a 23-2 touchdown to interception ratio at the Superdome.

Even in a “down” game by his standards last week, he still racked up 301 yards and two touchdowns against the Eagles.
He’s eclipsed 21 fantasy points in five of eight home starts this season, and faces a Rams defense that surrendered at least 20 fantasy points to Dak Prescott and Nick Mullens in the last three weeks.
The Pick: Over 20.5 (-160)
Todd Gurley returned to action last week and posted an efficient line of 115 yards on 16 carries, including this 35 yard TD run.

He’s flying under the radar this week due to the amount of work CJ Anderson stole against the Cowboys, but this game shapes up to be a high-scoring affair, with the Rams playing from behind, which better suits Gurley.
He’s a more reliable pass-catcher than Anderson, and while I don’t think he handles 100% of the running back touches, a 70-30 split seems more realistic.

Gurley has the luxury of operating behind the number one run blocking unit in the NFL and the loss of Saints run stuffing tackle Sheldon Rankins greatly improves his outlook.
He’s gone over 23.5 fantasy points in 11 of 15 games this season and no one in the NFL has scored more touchdowns over the last two seasons.
The Pick: Over 23.5 (+140)
