NFL Conference Championships 2020: 49ers and Chiefs to Progress

NFL Conference Championships 2020: 49ers and Chiefs to Progress

We’re nearing crunch time in the 2020 NFL season as the NFL Conference Championships are upon us. In the AFC, the Tennessee Titans take on Kansas City Chiefs, while a mouth-watering tie of Green Bay Packers versus San Francisco makes up the NFC championship. Who do you think will win?

The NFL Conference Championship games odds suggest it should be relatively plain sailing for the Kansas City Chief and San Francisco 49ers in their respective conference championship games, but football has a habit of going against the grain and causing upsets. Both games take place on January 19th, who is your money on?

  • Kansas City Chiefs are -330 favorites to beat Tennessee Titans
  • You can get a +7.5 spread at -115 on the Titans causing an upset
  • San Francisco 49ers go into their clash with Green bay Packers as -300 favorites
  • Green Bay Packers look decent value at +250, or 110 with a +7.0 spread

AFC Conference Title Is Heading to Kansas

The Kansas City Chiefs have reached the AFC Conference Championship for only the third time in their history and are hoping it is a case of third time lucky as both previous appearances have ended in defeat. The Chiefs lost to New England Patriots 37-31 at this stage last season.

The Chiefs took on Houston Texas in the Divisional Round and looked to be heading for an exit as the trailed 24-0 by the start of the second quarter. They then turned on the style and eventually ran out 51-31 winners thanks in part to five touchdown passes from Patrick Mahomes II. 

Bovada, where you can claim a $250 welcome bonus for the NFL playoffs, give the Tennessee Titans NFL Conference Championship Odds 2020 of +265, ranking them massive outsiders. The Titans were impressive in their 28-12 victory over Baltimore Ravens. Titans went ahead and never relinquished their lead thanks to a solid defense.

The Titans have the psychological advantage in this match thanks to winning 35-32 against the Chiefs in regular season and having won the 2017 wild game against them 22-21. That said, the Chiefs went 12-4 this season and are simply going to be too strong for the Titans.

Pick: Kansas City Chiefs at -330

San Franciso 49ers to Brush Aside the Green Bay Packers

Two franchises steeped in history clash at the Levi’s Stadium when the San Franciso 49ers take on the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Conference Championship game.

This is the 49ers 17th appearance in the conference championship, the most of any team. The 49ers demolished the Packers 37-8 on Week 12 of this season in what was a fantastic defensive display. They only allowed 198 years in total, a mere 81 passing yards and they sacked Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers five times!

Green Bay Packers are looking for their first NFC conference title since 2010 but the Vegas odds NFL conference championship suggests this isn’t going to happen. Davante Adams received 160 years against the Seahawks, the most of any Green Bay player in the Super Bowl era, and they’ll need him to be on the top of his game if they have any chance of winning this game.

The Packers are a good team, but the 49ers are too strong. Only the New England Patriots and Baltimore Ravens finished with more net points than the 49ers, who look destined for the Super Bowl.

Pick: San Franciso 49ers at -300 

These two games are perfect for a parlay. A $50 wager on a Chiefs / 49ers victory nets you $36.87. Throw into the mix an LSU victory over Clemson in the NCAA final on January 14th, and your winnings increase to $74.64.
