Current AFC Championship Odds

AFC Championship Opening Odds

AFC Championship odds opened at DraftKings Sportsbook before FanDuel Sportsbook following the incredible Divisional game between Kansas City and Buffalo. The Chiefs were installed as -6.5 favorites with some extra juice, priced at -115. The over/under opened at 53.5 with the Cincinnati +235 underdogs on the moneyline.

AFC Championship look-ahead lines at FanDuel Sportsbook Sunday morning had the same -6.5 (-115) line on the Chiefs facing the Bengals.

Current NFC Championship Odds

“We just did a terrible job offensively of putting our defense in terrible spots. We can’t do that and expect to win,” said Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp to NBC despite surviving against the Buccaneers. Even though Los Angeles kept turning the ball over and allowed the Bucs to tie the game at 27-27 and blowing a 27-3 lead, FanDuel Sportsbook re-opened NFC Championship odds with the Rams as slightly larger favorites than the NFC Championship look-ahead line earlier in the day.

The 49ers were just three-point underdogs Sunday morning to the Rams but moved through the biggest key number of all to +3.5 after Los Angeles’ high-wire act of a divisional round win. An interesting move to say the least; however, it began moving back towards 3 with some early 49ers money, as of 6:30 p.m. ET Sunday.

Early line betting strategy for AFC and NFC title games

The betting line for the NFC Championship game dropped Sunday afternoon as soon as the Bucs – Rams result became official.

Once that happens, the market moved quickly in response. You can find good value on the early numbers because the more bets and information that pour into the market, the sharper the lines become.

NFL Conference Championship Schedule

Both 2022 NFL Conference Championships will take place Sunday, Jan. 30. The AFC has the early slot with the NFC game in the evening:

  • Cincinnati Bengals at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 3 p.m. ET on CBS
  • San Francisco 49ers at LA Rams, Sunday, 6:30 p.m. ET on FOX
