The 2020 NFL playoffs are down to only three games remaining. Championship Sunday is the last day of the NFL season where fans can enjoy more than one game in a day. By Sunday night, we will know who will be facing off in Super Bowl LV in Tampa.

For the 2020 NFL season, six of the BTSC staff (a group I have affectionately named the “BTSC Super Six”) have signed up to pick every game against the spread and the over/under point totals. We are doing things a little different this year and including the Thursday games. Please remember we are not experts on betting or any kind of sports gamblers. We are just a group of Steelers’ fans saying who we think will come through each week.

We are using a new program called Tallysight this season. It will allow us to show picks in a much more “friendly to the eye” manner. To understand how it works, the default tab is for our picks against the spread. To see the over/under picks, click the “O/U” tab in the upper right.

Last week, when picking games against the spread, Michael, Shannon, and I led the way by going 3-1 with all of us each missing a different game. Michael picked the Chiefs to cover while Shannon thought the Ravens would stay within three points of the Bills. I didn’t see the turnover fest coming by the Saints and had them getting a third win over the Bucs. Bryan continues to hold the top spot overall at 135-131 and cannot be caught as he holds an 9-game lead of Geoffrey and I with only 3 games remaining in the season.

When it comes to picking the over/under, Bryan crushed us all and was the only person to get to .500 at 3-1. Michael continues to hold the top spot overall at 137-129 by two games over Geoffrey who went 0-4 last week. When combining both sets of picks, Bryan moved into the top spot at 265-267 combined. Michael is within striking distance needing to make up 3 games and Geoffrey has fallen to 5 games back.

So here are the picks for the games for the Conference Championship Games of the 2020 postseason. Please feel free to list your choices in the comment section below and play along!
