NFL Playoffs 2020: Betting Lines and Odds for AFC, NFC Championship Games

The Kansas City Chiefs, Tennessee Titans, San Francisco 49ers and Green Bay Packers are the only teams left in the NFL playoffs as the postseason moves into its third week.

The Chiefs completed a historic comeback against the Houston Texans, erasing a 24-0 deficit to win 51-31 and reach the AFC Championship Game for the second consecutive season.

Tennessee stands between Kansas City and a first Super Bowl appearance since the AFL-NFL merger, but if form is anything to go by, defeating the Titans will be far from a formality for the Chiefs.

Tennessee entered the playoffs as the No. 6 seed in the AFC, but has since defeated the Patriots in New England in the wild card round and then defeated the Ravens in Baltimore 28-10 on Saturday, eliminating the No. 1 seed and the team wit the best regular season record.

Meanwhile, as this graphic provided by Statista shows, the NFC Championship Game will pit together the top two seeds in the conference after the San Francisco 49ers and the Green Bay Packers both progressed through the divisional round.

The 49ers defeated the Minnesota Vikings 27-10 at home, while the Packers reached their third NFC Championship Game in six years after beating the Seattle Seahawks 27-23 on Sunday night.

Here's how bookmakers expect action in the AFC and NFC championship games to pan out.

Tennessee Titans @ Kansas City Chiefs

According to Oddschecker, the Chiefs are 7.5-point favorite and are even odds to cover the spread, while the Titans are 14/5 underdogs.

The Chiefs are 11-5-1 against the spread this season, covering in 68.8 percent of games—the best record in the NFL. Kansas City is 4-2-1 against the spread as home favorite and has covered by an average of 1.9 points per game in that scenario.

Tennessee, meanwhile, is 10-7-1 against the spread this season and 4-2-0 as road underdog, during which it has covered by an average of 11.5 points.

The Titans have knocked off the Patriots in New England in the wildcard round and defeated the 14-2 Ravens in Baltimore in the divisional round, becoming the first team to beat Baltimore in 13 games.

The over/under line in terms of total points scored is set at 51.5, but a shootout would suit the Chiefs more than the Titans.

Kansas City has averaged 37.6 points per game in its last three playoff matchups, while the Titans have put up an average of 20.7 points per game.

Green Bay Packers @ San Francisco 49ers

The 49ers are a seven-point favorite and are 9/10 to cover the spread while the Packers are a 49/20 underdog.

San Francisco is 10-6-1 against the spread this season, covering in 62.5 percent of games—the fifth best percentage in the league. As home favorite, however, San Francisco's record drops to 4-4-1 against the spread, covering by an average margin of 6.6 points.

Green Bay, meanwhile, is 11-6 against the spread this season, the third-best record in the NFL, but has covered by an average of less than a point per game. As road underdog, the Packers are 3-1 against the spread, covering by an average margin of 3.8 points this season.

The over/under line in terms of total points scored is set at 45.5. When the two teams met in Week 12 in San Francisco, the 49ers put up 37 points and restricted Green Bay to just eight points, keeping Aaron Rodgers to just 104 passing yards.

Limiting Rodgers will again be key for the 49ers as since the quarterback was drafted in 2005, the Packers have never scored fewer than 20 points in a playoff game.
