Want some excitement during the Conference Championship games of the NFL Playoffs? Play NFL Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) this weekend and enjoy the playoff games even more.
If you’re looking for a way to combine the fun of betting and fantasy football, Underdog Fantasy may be the perfect site for you.
Unlike the typical salary cap lineup construction format that most DFS sites follow, Underdog has users build their own parlays by selecting Over or Under on up to five specific player props instead. The more props you select, the higher the multiplier on the entry fee.
Another unique game on Underdog is called Battle Royale, where users enter a snake draft of three, four, or six people and choose a roster. Then, you compete against the entire pool, and if your team scores the most, you win!
Now that you understand how Underdog Fantasy works, it’s time to give you my sleeper draft picks and my DFS football predictions for the Conference Championship games!
They don’t call me the “Head of Winning" at Underdog Fantasy for nothing.
Prop stats information for NFL DFS Conference Championship picks are current as of Thursday, January 27, at 5 p.m. ET.
NFL DFS Conference Championship: Underdog Fantasy Sleeper Picks
Users can enter three different Battle Royales for the Saturday and Sunday games and have a chance of winning a share of $100,000 in prizes.
Target these sleepers in your Underdog Conference Championship Drafts:
Tee Higgins, WR, Cincinnati Bengals @ Kansas City Chiefs
The last time these two played, Ja’Marr Chase had a historic day, so they’ll put more focus on him this game, which should open things up for Tee Higgins.
The Bengals are 7-point underdogs in this one, so they’ll be playing from behind. That’s good for Higgins, as Cincinnati will throw the ball a lot.

Jerick McKinnon, RB, Kansas City Chiefs vs Cincinnati Bengals
People might have dropped off of him after the last game, but I like Jerick McKinnon against the Bengals. As heavy favorites, the Chiefs will be running the ball more, giving him more opportunities.
George Kittle, TE, San Francisco 49ers @ Los Angeles Rams
I’d say the weakest part of the Rams’ defense is the linebackers, so I like George Kittle in this spot. Los Angeles will have Jalen Ramsey shadowing Deebo Samuel and Brandon Aiyuk, leaving Kittle room to have a big day.
Sony Michel, RB, Los Angeles Rams vs San Francisco 49ers
I’m going with Sony Michel as a super sleeper for Sunday. Cam Akers fumbled twice against the Buffalo Bills, which could be an opportunity for Michel to score.

NFL DFS Conference Championship: Underdog Daily Fantasy Sports Prop Games
Users can parlay up to five NFL fantasy picks together to win up to 20 times your entry fee.
Ja’Marr Chase, WR, Cincinnati Bengals @ Kansas City Chiefs
OVER 1 Receiving Yard (SPECIAL)
Yes, you are seeing this correctly. This is a special line that Underdog Fantasy is doing for the NFL Playoffs.
Keep in mind, though, that you only get to use one special line throughout the playoffs. So if you use this Ja’Marr Chase line, you won’t get one next week, and vice versa.
Obviously, I’m taking Chase with the Over.
Tee Higgins, WR, Cincinnati Bengals @ Kansas City Chiefs
OVER 68.5 Receiving Yards
The same reasons I’m picking him as a sleeper in the Battle Royale drafts are why I’m taking him Over here. Higgins also hit this Over last game, so look for him to continue that trend.
Patrick Mahomes, QB, Kansas City Chiefs vs Cincinnati Bengals
UNDER 291.5 Passing Yards
Kansas City shouldn’t be throwing the ball as much, given they’re big favorites. Patrick Mahomes was limited in throwing the ball for 55 minutes last game before the scoring barrage happened.
Kyle Juszczyk, FB, San Francisco 49ers @ Los Angeles Rams
OVER 9.5 Receiving Yards
Kyle Juszczyk always comes up big when you need him to. I can see him catching a 10-yarder to hit the Over.
Van Jefferson, WR, Los Angeles Rams vs San Francisco 49ers
OVER 31.5 Receiving Yards
I really like Van Jefferson to hit the Over. Ever since Odell Beckham Jr. came to town, he’s definitely fallen off, but Jefferson is still catching longer passes. The Rams love using him on deeper routes.

NFL Conference Championship Predictions
Cincinnati Bengals @ Kansas City Chiefs
The Bengals are 7-point underdogs in an AFC Championship game, which is Vegas kind of saying this team is good, but just not as good as Kansas City, especially with the Chiefs getting down to 1 against Buffalo.
Prediction: Chiefs 31, Bengals 21
San Francisco 49ers @ Los Angeles Rams
I have the Rams in a close one. I’ve said it before that Los Angeles has the best roster in football, and I’m sticking with that.
The thing that was holding people back from backing them was the fact that Matthew Stafford hadn’t won a playoff game. He’s now won two, including a win over Tom Brady.
