After nineteen weeks of professional football, there are just four franchises remaining in the NFL’s 2020/21 postseason, two in each conference, all ready to battle for the privilege of playing in February’s Big Game in Tampa, aka Super Bowl LV (55).

It took some fantastic play to get to this point in the playoffs, from GOAT Tom Brady’s Bucs showing up on both sides of the ball to take care of Drew Brees and his Saints for possibly the last time in Brees’ Hall of Fame-worthy career to the Chiefs barely outscoring the Browns despite losing starting quarterback Patrick Mahomes to a head injury.

And now, some potentially breathtaking matchups remain – in the NFC the Green Bay Packers led by potential league MVP Aaron Rodgers takes on Tom Brady and his talent heavy Buccaneers, and in the AFC young QB phenom, Josh Allen and his stampeding Buffalo Bills will face the defending champions possibly without their star hurler.

Here are our predictions, picks, spreads, and odds of the NFL 2020 /21 Conference Championship Round – good luck!

Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs Green Bay Packers (-3.5)

How to watch: Sunday, 3:05 PM ET, FOX

The two main surprises that the Tampa Bay Bucs had for the Saints during the Divisional Round of the playoffs were their strong rushing attack starring “Playoff Lenny” Leonard Fournette and also QB Tom Brady’s willingness to target his less utilized teammates like WR Scott Miller and TW Cameron Brate for some huge, season-saving plays, showing the type of team depth required to win in the postseason, especially facing these big-scoring Packers.

The Packers made it look easy against the LA Rams last week, winning 32-18 and establishing themselves as the team to beat in this postseason tournament, especially given who is under center in Green Bay, future Hall of Famer, and potential NFL MVP this season Aaron Rodgers, who leads the league in TDs (48) and completion percentage (70.7) and has arguably the best receiver in the league to target, Davante Adams, who leads the league in receiving TDs (18) and receiving yards per game (98.1).

What a classic NFL showdown – Brady and Rodgers and their top-10 offenses and defenses, facing off to play in Tampa in Super Bowl LV – could be a toss-up so take the GOAT and the points for the win.

Pick:

Bucs +3.5 (-110)

Buffalo Bills vs Kansas City Chiefs (-3)

How to watch: Sunday, 6:40 PM ET, CBS

The Buffalo Bills easily took care of Lamar Jackson’s Baltimore Ravens, putting continuous pressure on the usually mobile QB and getting full production from their playmaking young quarterback, Josh Allen, who threw for four TD passes with no interceptions to a receiving corps that includes three sure-handed stars, Stefon Diggs, John Brown, and Cole Beasley, a squad that could take full advantage of a Chiefs defense that can struggle against the pass.

Didn’t matter that QB Patrick Mahomes left the game with a head injury (he remains in concussion protocol), because Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid had full confidence in his 35-year old veteran backup, Chad Henne, who proceeded to drive the bus home for the win, including a game-saving run and a game-winning shotgun pass on 4th and inches, though whether the team could do that again against these talented Bills remains to be seen.

If Mahomes can play, this game takes on a new dimension, but right now he is still in concussion protocol and it is impossible to put a timeline on his return, so check back, but regardless this Chiefs team might be too big a machine to beat.

Pick:

Chiefs -3 (-105)
