Top 2024 Championship Round NFL picks
After simulating every game 10,000 times, the model is high on the Over (44.5) in the 2024 AFC Championship Game of Chiefs vs. Ravens. The Ravens were the No. 1 scoring defense in the NFL this season while the Chiefs ranked No. 2 but both teams have quarterbacks that are about to be two-time NFL MVPs.
Patrick Mahomes already has his two MVP awards on the mantle and Lamar Jackson is the runaway favorite to win his second at NFL Honors next weekend. These two superstars have gone head-to-head in the regular season on four occasions and there have been at least 51 points scored in every game with an average total of 59.3 points scored per game.
An average of 49 points has also been scored over Baltimore’s last five home games and Kansas City has scored at least 23 points in its five AFC championship game appearances the last five seasons. Those are all big reasons why the model is projecting over 44.5 points to be scored. See which other NFL parlay picks to make here.
