Betting Guide for 2020 NFL Conference Championship Games

Written by on January 18, 2020

And just like that we are down to just 4 teams remaining in the NFL playoffs, which means that the Conference Championship Round is now upon us. It is a pair of interesting battles that await us, particularly in the AFC, where the #6 seeded Tennessee Titans are still alive and looking to take another big scalp when they head to Kansas City to face the Chiefs. In the NFC, it is the top two seeds who will be doing battle, with the Green Bay Packers heading west to face the San Francisco 49ers.

We will be breaking these games down over the course of this week and making some predictions as we go, but for now, let’s take a closer look at the NFL odds for both games this coming Sunday, keeping in mind that the odds may move a little as the week progresses.

Betting Guide for 2020 NFL Conference Championship Games

Tennessee Titans vs Kansas City Chiefs AFC Championship Game

After coming from 24-0 down to beat the Houston Texans 51-31 in the Divisional Round, the Chiefs were immediately installed as the favorite to win the Super Bowl. Their pick as the favorite was certainly aided by the fact that they will be at home to the #6 seed Tennessee Titans this weekend. It’s no real surprise then that the Chiefs are a pretty big favorite, with their SU odds set at -370. The Titans have already had a pair of massive road wins as an underdog in the playoffs, and if you like them to make it 3 in a row, you can get them at +280.

As far as the point spread goes, the Chiefs are in as a 7 ½ point favorite for this game, a position that they have been in over their last 4 games. They are 6-3 ATS in home games this season, which makes them seem like a good bet. The Titans are used to being the underdog, as they have covered twice as the dog in these playoffs.

Finally, the point total for this one is set at 52. These two teams have a combined O/U record of 19-16 this season, so this is one that could really go either way.

Green Bay Packers vs San Francisco 49ers NFC Championship Game

It is always interesting when you get a playoff game that features a pair of teams who already met in the regular season. That is what we are getting this weekend, as the San Francisco 49ers will be looking to do the double overt the Green Bay Packers, a task that is going to be easier said than done. The 49ers won in comfortable fashion in the previous meeting and are in as the favorite at -330. If you like the Packers to ger their revenge here, then you can play them at +260.

Packers vs 49ers is going to be a difficult one to predict for all NFL Betting enthusiasts.

It was a bit of a blowout the last time these two met, with San Francisco winning that one by a score of 37-8. The bookies don’t seem to be convinced that we will see a repeat of that, though, as they have the 49ers in as a much more modest 7-point favorite, although the regular season meeting had San Francisco in as just a 3-point favorite.

The point total for the NFC Championship Game has been set at 45. Thus far, these two teams have combined to go 15-18-1 O/U on the season.
