Patriots NFL Predictions - 2012 AFC Championship: The 2012 AFC Championship NFL predictions contest kicks off on Sunday at 3:00PM and with one more victory the New England Patriots will play in the Super Bowl once again. The New England Patriots have made the Super Bowl picks contest five times over the last eleven years with a huge loss to the New York Giants in Super Bowl XLII.
Vegas odds makers have posted the New England Patriots as this years 2012 Super Bowl odds favorite at 6/5 and the chances of a win over the Ravens in the AFC Championship NFL predictions contest to get there are optimistic. Last week Tom Brady once again led the Patriots to a dominant win over the Tim Tebow led Denver Broncos, silencing the minions of Tebowing fans.
With one extra day to prepare for their NFL predictions contest versus the Baltimore Ravens, the Patriots are now listed as a solid -9(+105) point spread favorite and odds makers are expecting this AFC Championship matchup to be high scoring with a game total set to 50½( ov-110). New England tight-ends Gronkowski and Hernandez have been a force for any opponent to stop and the Ravens will have their hands full as Ray Lewis just isn't at his peak and Pollard struggles against the pass. New England's tight ends accounted for 261 yards and four touchdowns versus the Broncos last week, but Hernandez sustained a head injury late in the game and could potentially not take the field this week, which could account as a game losing injury.
Assuming Hernendez takes the field Sunday, the New England Patriots should come out as winners of this NFL preidctions contest straight-up, covering the -9(+105) point spread set by odds makers is a serious question to consider.
