Titans vs. Chiefs Odds: Latest Betting Lines and Trends for AFC Championship Game

The Kansas City Chiefs could end a 51-year wait for a trip to the Super Bowl with a win over the Tennessee Titans on Sunday.

The Chiefs return to the AFC Championship Game for the second consecutive season on Sunday, hoping to go a step better than they did 12 months ago when they lost at home to the New England Patriots.

The Titans, meanwhile, travel to Kansas City hoping to become only the third No. 6 seed after the 2005 Pittsburgh Steelers and the 2010 Green Bay Packers to reach the Super Bowl.

Tennesse has been one of the stories of the NFL playoffs so far, eliminating the Patriots in the wild-card round and defeating the Ravens in Baltimore in the divisional round a week ago.

Here's a look at the main betting trends ahead of the AFC Championship Game.

Moneyline

According to Oddschecker, the Chiefs are a 3/10 favorite, while the Titans are 14/5 underdogs.

Kansas City's home record during the regular season was a modest 5-3, while Tennessee won five of its road games.

Road comfort has been a feature of the Titans' playoffs run so far, with wins in New England and Baltimore. With a win on Sunday, Tennessee would become only the third team since the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2005 and the Green Bay Packers in 2010 to reach the Super Bowl as the No. 6 seed.

Spread

The Chiefs are 7.5-point favorite and are even odds to cover the spread.

Kansas City is 11-5-1 against the spread this season, covering in 68.8 percent of games—the best record in the NFL.

Andy Reid's team 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.

Total points

The over/under line in terms of total points scored is set at 51.5, and as showed by their win over the Houston Texans in the divisional round, a shootout would suit Kansas City far more than Tennessee.

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.

At the same time, it is worth noting that when the two teams met in Week 10 in Tennessee, the Titans stood their ground and won a high-scoring game 35-32.

Patrick Mahomes passing yards

The over/under line in terms of passing yards for Mahomes is set at 291.5.

The reigning NFL MVP thew for 321 yards in the comeback win over the Texans last week and had 446 passing yards in the loss to the Titans in Week 10.

Derrick Henry rushing yards

The over/under line in terms of rushing yards for Henry is set at 91.5, which seems somewhat conservative.

The NFL leading rusher has been in devastating form in the playoffs, rushing for 182 yards in the win over the Patriots and racking up 195 yards on the ground against the Ravens.

The latter effort made Henry the first player since 1950 to rush for at least 180 yards in three consecutive games— he had racked up 211 yards on the ground against the Texans in Week 17.
