According to odds-makers over at Sports Betting Dime you can be pretty certain that the first touchdown of the game will be scored by someone with a “B” name, either Tom Brady, LeGarrette Blount, or Pittsburgh’s “Killer B’s”; Ben Roethlisberger, Antonio Brown, Le’Veon Bell or Chris Boswell.

The other sure-things of the Conference Championship Weekend include that the Falcons and Packers ratings will exceed last year’s NFC Champion and that Bill Belichick and Mike Tomlin’s post-game handshake will last less than one second.

For fans of betting on longshots Sports Betting Dime has got you covered. They have odds on if Ben Roethlisberger throws the most touchdowns for the weekend, odds on a Steelers vs. Packers Super Bowl and odds on if Aaron Rodgers successfully completes a Hail Mary pass.

There are odds on if there are no punts during the Packers and Falcons game and even odds on Belichick and Tomlin skipping a handshake and going for a bro-hug or fist-bump.

Here are more NFL Conference Championship Games odds and props from the odds-makers at Sports Betting Dime. Additional analysis is available at SportsBettingDime.com.
