NFL Conference Championship Betting

The Kansas City Chiefs will host the AFC Championship Game for the fifth consecutive season. Last year the Chiefs suffered a stunning upset loss at Arrowhead Stadium to the Cincinnati Bengals. On Sunday, Kansas City gets its shot at revenge. But its no fait accompli. The defending AFC champion Bengals are better than last year. They have the confidence of a proven champion. And Cincinnati showed fans and gamblers a lot in their win at the Buffalo Bills last Sunday. Kansas City has an additional concern about Patrick Mahomes' injury status. Mahomes suffered an ankle injury last week against Jacksonville.

San Francisco 49ers at Philadelphia Eagles, 3:05 PM ET (FOX)

There is a great Cinderella story brewing in Philadelphia. Quarterbacks Brock Purdy of the San Francisco 49ers and Jalen Hurts of the Philadelphia Eagles have defied the doubters and critics to be on the cusp of a Super Bowl bid. Purdy is the third-string QB that became an undefeated starter. He was the last player taken in the 2022 NFL Draft. That status gave him the moniker “Mr Irrelevant.” Now he is on the brink of being set for life.

Jalen Hurts has never gotten over being replaced as starting quarterback of the Alabama Crimson Tide in the middle of the national championship game. Later, Hurts was derided for not being a prototypical NFL quarterback. Instead, he put together an NFL MVP type of season to lead the Eagles to the top seed of the NFC. Both the 49ers and Eagles are complete teams that can beat opponents with multiple weapons. Philadelphia decimated the Giants last week, while the 49ers showed grit in fighting off the Cowboys.

Cincinnati Bengals at Kansas City Chiefs, 6:30 PM ET (CBS)

Kansas City QB Patrick Mahomes is the rare talent that can take over a football game. But Mahomes was not 100% in last week’s win over the Jaguars. And in Kansas City’s Super Bowl loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, a key factor in the game was Mahomes' inability to improvise because of a toe issue. Cincinnati has one of the best defenses in the NFL. And the Bengals can play a championship level of complementary football. Also, Cincinnati will not be intimidated by the Arrowhead crowd. After all, the Bengals upset the Chiefs in KC last year as a Cinderella team.

The two franchises that have had the most success in the AFC Championship Game are the Pittsburgh Steelers and New England Patriots. Pittsburgh has been to the AFC Championship Game 16 times in their history, and the Steelers have gone on to the Super Bowl eight times. They are known as ‘Sixburgh’ after becoming the first team to win six Super Bowl titles, but the Patriots have caught them in just two decades.

New England was the greatest dynasty the NFL has seen from 2001 to 2020. The Patriots only made it to the AFC Championship Game twice in the 20th Century, but they made it to the conference championship game 13 times from 2001 to 2018. Bill Belichick and Tom Brady went on to a record nine Super Bowls, and they lifted the Lombardi Trophy six times.

Only three teams have been to the NFC Championship Game 10 or more times. The San Francisco 49ers have made it to the NFC Championship Game 17 times, and they have gone on to make the Super Bowl on seven occasions.

The Dallas Cowboys have won the NFC a record eight times. They haven’t been to the NFC Championship Game since 1995 though, as they have largely struggled over the last quarter decade. Dallas is tied with San Francisco for the NFC teams with the most Super Bowl wins at five.

The Los Angeles Rams went back to the NFC Championship Game last year. They beat the San Francisco 49ers after the Niners beat them in the regular season twice, and they are now 5-6 all-time in the NFC Championship Game.
