In NFL betting, Patriots are closest to being a sure thing

A lot of different things could happen in the NFL conference championship games Sunday. But oddsmakers are pretty sure what is likely to happen. The New England Patriots will beat the Pittsburgh Steelers by about 6, and the Atlanta Falcons will defeat the Green Bay Packers by 4 or 5 in a high-scoring affair.
