Carrie Stroup here for with all your latest NFL Conference Championship weekend betting action for both the Eagles vs. Cardinals and Ravens vs. Steelers game.  Which two teams will be going to the Super Bowl?

The Philadelphia Eagles had been the big public favorite this weekend and still are but the action has leveled off a bit, down from around 72 percent going Philly's way to what was now 61 percent on the spread.  The line was now Eagles -3 ½. 

Arizona is getting plenty of money line action.  75 percent of the money line action was going the Cardinals way with a payout potential of $160 for every $100 bet should they win outright at

The Over 47 in that game was getting just over 70 percent of the action.  Be forewarned:  Philadelphia on the total in all games as a favorite of 3.5 to 9.5 has had only 2 of the games go Over and 12 go Under during the last two seasons.

As for the Ravens vs. Steelers, this game was amazingly even.  We're talking 52 percent of the betting action on the Steelers now and 48 percent on the Ravens.  However, we have seen a slight shift with Baltimore getting a little over 50 percent of the action earlier in the week.  We'll call this one dead even with Pittsburgh as the -6 favorite.  The line opened at -5 I should point out.

The Over/Under 34 was also getting near even action.  It was the money line for Baltimore getting 71 percent of the action that might serve to make or break the books in this game.

Good luck to everyone!
