NFL AFC Championship Odds and Betting Favorites Into Wild Card Weekend

The AFC playoff picture has taken a tremendous turn right as the NFL season concluded. While the Buffalo Bills were the favorite to be the number one seed, a tragic event in Cincinnati has changed the layout of the AFC playoff seeding. 

Because of the Bills playing one less game than the Kansas City Chiefs, it’s the Chiefs who hold the number one seed, sending the Bills down to the second seed. However, the game will be played at a neutral site if the two meet.

With everything in disarray in the AFC, a close look at some of the top teams can give a NFL AFC Conference Championship Betting picture of who will win the title.

NFL Betting Lines and Preview for the 2023 AFC Conference Championship

Kansas City Chiefs +162

Patrick Mahomes has led the Kansas City Chiefs to another division win under his leadership. The young quarterback led the league in passing yards (5,250), touchdowns (41), and QBR (77.6). His team heads into their playoff bye on a five-game winning streak where their offense was posting massive amounts of points.

Buffalo Bills +187

The Buffalo Bills come into the playoffs being a team that no one wants to face. Their defense is ranked sixth in total yards allowed, while their offense ranks second in total yards per game. Josh Allen and Stephon Diggs head into the playoffs looking to avenge their loss to the Kansas City Chiefs last season.

Cincinnati Bengals +410

The AFC Champions from last season walk into this season with the third seed. However, the team is getting hot down the stretch. They have a huge win over the Kansas City Chiefs and were winning against the Buffalo Bills until the game was suspended. 

Their eight-game winning streak got them to a 12-4 record. With Joe Burrow, Joe Mixon, and Ja’Marr Chase on the team, the Bengals can easily be a repeat champion of the AFC.

Los Angeles Chargers +1050

The Los Angeles Chargers come in as a wild card favorite thanks to their 10-7 record. They are also getting back some big names for their playoff run. With Justin Herbert hungry in his first playoff appearance, he can show some magic against teams he’s faced from earlier this season.

Baltimore Ravens +1875

The Baltimore Ravens come in as a wild-card team thanks to an injury to Lamar Jackson. While the Ravens defense has stepped up in most of their games without him, their offense hasn’t. If the Ravens want a chance to win the AFC Championship, it will have to be with Jackson leading the offense.

Jacksonville Jaguars +2000

The Jacksonville Jaguars have gone from the worst team in the NFL to the AFC South division champion. They had shocking wins over the Ravens, Cowboys, and Titans already this season. While this is Trevor Lawrence’s first playoff appearance, head coach Doug Pederson is a former Super Bowl Champion. His leadership can make the Jaguars a deadly playoff team.

Miami Dolphins +3200

The Miami Dolphins are a streaky team this season. They go on winning streaks than losing streaks. While they won their last game of the season to make the playoffs, they might not have Tua Tagovailoa. If the Dolphins want an AFC Championship, they need Tagovailoa as their quarterback.
