After a public wild-card round bonanza in which favorites went 5-1 ATS, dogs barked back in the divisional round, going 3-1 ATS with three outright wins. For those keeping track, favorites are 6-4 ATS this postseason while Unders hold the edge at 6-4.
Historically, the conference championship games have provided an edge to favorites and Overs. Since 2003, home favorites are 22-8 (73%) straight up this round and 17-13 ATS (57%). We've also seen overs go 22-11 (67%) over that stretch, including a perfect 4-0 over the past two years.
Will favorites and Overs continue to cash? Or will we see dogs bark and Unders come through?
Let's dive into both games and examine where the respected money is leaning.
