- The NFC Championship Game (49ers @ Eagles) Begins At 3 PM This Sunday
- The AFC Championship Game (Bengals @ Chiefs) Kicks Off At 6:30 PM On Sunday
Conference Championship Weekend kicks off this Sunday, with the top seeds still alive in the hunt for the Super Bowl in both the American and National Football Conferences.
The current Super Bowl futures are a solid indicator of how close these final four NFL franchises are to one another.
Super Bowl 57 Futures
- Philadelphia Eagles +235
- Cincinnati Bengals +260
- Kansas City Chiefs +285
- San Francisco 49ers +330
While the above odds for the winner of Super Bowl LVII would seem to indicate that the final NFL game of the year will be between the Philadephia Eagles and Cincinnati Bengals, betting lines are suggesting a different outcome.
Betting On The AFC Conference Championship Game
So why, then, do the Bengals possess better odds to win the Super Bowl in current futures prop bets? Perhaps Super Bowl sportsbooks are simply offering variance in the lines due to how closely matched up all four of them are.
In reality, the oddsmakers are confused. While they normally love them some Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs, they cannot ignore the fact that Joe Burrow and the Bengals have won their last three meetings.
AFC Championship Moneyline Odds To Win
- Chiefs: -115 at Bovada, -120 at BetUS, -119 at MyBookie, -118 at BetOnline
- Bengals: -105 at Bovada, EVEN at BetUS, -102 at MyBookie and BetOnline
AFC Championship Over/Under
- 47.5 at Bovada, BetUS, MyBookie, and BetOnline
The over/under line of 47.5 is consistent across all four sites as well. Combining this total with the current point spread suggests the final score will be: Kansas City 24, Cincinnati Bengals 23.
Betting On The NFC Championship Game
Closing out Conference Championship Sunday is a matchup of the two top seeds in the NFC, the Philadelphia Eagles and the San Francisco 49ers.
Betting on the San Francisco 49ers has been a winning proposition as of late, as they’re currently on a 12-game win streak. Rookie quarterback Brock Purdy has led the 49ers to a bolstered offensive attack that, when combined with their top-ranked defensive unit, is hard to beat.
The Eagles are at home and have only lost one game this year while starting QB Jalen Hurts has been under center, but do they have enough firepower to outlast the 49ers? Anyone betting on the Philadephia Eagles to cover the spread is assuming that they’ll win by at least a field goal.
NFC Championship Moneyline Odds To Win
- Eagles: -145 at Bovada, -140 at BetUS and BetOnline, -145 at MyBookie
- 49ers: +125 at Bovada, +120 at BetUS and BetOnline, +119 at MyBookie
NFC Championship Over/Under
- 46.5 at Bovada, BetUS, MyBookie, and BetOnline
For the NFC Title Game, all four major NFL sportsbooks are offering an over/under total of 46.5. Applying that sum to the point spread projects the final score to be Philadelphia 25, San Francisco 22
Something to keep in mind before placing your final NFL bets this weekend is that the 49ers have only lost once when they’ve scored 20 or more points this season, and that was to the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 10. Jimmy Garoppolo was their starting quarterback for San Francisco at that time.
