Super Bowl odds
Here are updated Super Bowl odds ahead of the AFC and NFC title games. Odds to win the Super Bowl change week-to-week based on outcomes and injuries.
Chiefs Look Unstoppable
After outlasting the Bills, 42-36, in an overtime finish for the ages, the Chiefs seem to have too much momentum to be denied a third straight trip to the Super Bowl. They host the AFC Championship for a fourth straight year and open at +125 (FanDuel Sportsbook) to get past the inexperienced Bengals and win the Super Bowl. Patrick Mahomes now owns a 25:3 TD:INT ratio over nine career postseason appearances at Arrowhead Stadium. If the Rams wind up hosting Super Bowl LVI, the Chiefs will still be able to fill the stadium with fans since they’re one of the most explosive offenses we’ve ever seen and have become a mainstay in postseason football over the past few seasons.
Rams Look To Stop The Streak
The 49ers were listed at +3500 to win it all ahead of a Week 18 game against the Rams, and of course, they rallied to beat their rivals in overtime and make the playoffs. After an epic defensive battle in Green Bay, the Niners open as 3.5-point underdogs ahead of the NFC Championship at SoFi Stadium.
While the Rams have lost six straight to the 49ers, they seem like the more balanced team by a wide margin.
Jimmy Garoppolo has looked shaky throughout his postseason career and made a few more critical mistakes in Green Bay that nearly cost his team the game. In three road games against the Rams, Garoppolo has a 3:5 TD:INT ratio. The Niners will look to keep winning with a strong running game, great defense, and opportunistic special teams.
