This is championship weekend in the NFL, with just four teams remaining vying for the Super Bowl. The Bills and Chiefs will face off in the AFC Championship while the Packers and Buccaneers face off in the NFC Championship. Will we see betting picks from SVP on SportsCenter this week or will it come via the podcast? Let’s dive in.

As one of the most popular personalities in sports television, SVP draws a large audience to his “SportsCenter with Scott Van Pelt” platform. Even recently when he has not provided picks on the show, he has given his picks with Stanford Steve on his podcast. SVP is not a professional handicapper, but he provides a wealth of entertainment on video or audio platforms.

With just two games this week in the NFL, there will only be two picks from SVP. It’s not just any set of games though, as this week is the AFC and NFC Championships. Last week was the Divisional Round, where SVP and Stanford Steve gave their picks via the SVPod. Let’s take a look at this week’s picks.

 

SVP NFL Picks – AFC and NFC Championship

As the midnight SportsCenter rolled around on the east coast early Friday morning, it was “SportsCenter at Night” rather than SportsCenter with Scott Van Pelt. This means that SVP was not on SportsCenter, so there was no “Winners” segment. Not to worry though, as SVP and Stanford Steve go through their thoughts on the games on the SVPod.

On the SVPod, Van Pelt and Stanford Steve talk about their thoughts on the NFC and AFC Championships. Here are both their “picks” via the podcast, reading between the lines. Neither mentioned the exact line, but neither liked the underdogs which by default makes the picks the favorites.

Scott Van Pelt NFL Championship Weekend Picks

  • Kansas City Chiefs (-3 on DK Sportsbook)
  • Green Bay Packers (-3.5 on DK Sportsbook)

Van Pelt mentions that he is comfortable picking the Green Bay Packers winning all the way through the Super Bowl.

Stanford Steve NFL Championship Weekend Picks

  • Kansas City Chiefs (-3 on DK Sportsbook)
  • Green Bay Packers (-3.5 on DK Sportsbook)

Stanford Steve is vastly confident on the Packers this week as well as SVP.
