2020 NFL Conference Championship SU Betting Picks

2020 NFL Conference Championship SU Betting Picks

Written by on January 18, 2020

This has been one of the more memorable NFL playoffs in recent memory and we still have the Conference Championship games and the title game still to come. The conference winners will be decided this weekend, after which we will have a two week break before the Super Bowl rolls around. In the AFC side of things, the upstart Tennessee Titans will once again go on the road as a #6 seed will look to continue their astonishing run in Kansas City against the Chiefs.

In the NFC, it will be #1 and #2 going head to head, with the Green Bay Packers in san Francisco looking for revenge for the beating they took at the hands of the 49ers in the regular season. Who will win these games? Let’s take a closer look while making some NFL Betting predictions.

2020 NFL Conference Championship SU Betting Picks

Tennessee Titans at Kansas City Chiefs

The Tennessee Titans basically sneaked into the postseason with a 9-7 record, with most people believing that their time in the playoffs would be short-lived. They stunned everyone by going into New England and ousting the defending champions, but that win paled in comparison to their beatdown of the #1 seeded Baltimore Ravens in the Divisional Round. The Titans are now 7-3 SU on the road this season, as well as being winners in 4 of their last 5 games versus the Kansas City Chiefs.

History has shown us that teams who get hot at the end of the regular season are very often the ones that make a deep run in the playoffs.

The Chiefs certainly finished the season with a bang, winning 6 in a row before hammering the Houston Texans 51-31 in a game that they found themselves in an 0-24 hole early on. The Chiefs have actually been better on the road than at home this season, but they are still 6-3 SU at Arrowhead.

It has been a fantastic run for the Tennessee Titans, and while they have had success in recent seasons against the Chiefs, I think their run comes to an end on Sunday.

2020 Conference Championship Games Betting Trends

  • Titans are 8-1 SU in their last 9 games against an opponent in the AFC conference
  • Chiefs are 5-0 SU in their last 5 games this season

Green Bay Packers at San Francisco 49ers

It’s more than fair to suggest that the Packers have not always been particularly fun to watch this season, yet they have found a way to win more often than not, going 14-3 through the Divisional Round in the playoffs.

On the negative side, one of those three losses came on the road in San Francisco, a 37-8 defeat that was as lopsided as the score suggests. Still this is a team who are unbeaten in their last 6 and who are 6-2 SU on the road this season.

The Packers are underdogs for one of the 2020 Conference Championship Games.

It’s easy to look at the big win over the Green Bay Packers earlier in the season and immediately have the 49ers on your SU ticket, but there is even more to like than just that one victory.

The 49ers are, including their win over the Vikings in the Divisional Round, sitting at a very healthy 7-2 SU at home this season. That comfortable win over the Vikings will have given this team a huge jolt of confidence coming into this one.

I don’t believe that the 49ers will have it as easy as they did in their regular season meeting with the Packers, but I do still believe they will win and move on to the Super Bowl.
