Bettors Love the Chiefs and the Over
The first game on Championship Sunday is the AFC battle between the visiting Tennessee Titans who take on the Kansas City Chiefs.
The spread is currently set at -7.5, favoring the hometown Chiefs. Quite a large number of bettors are on the favorite, as 73% of the money and 62% of the bets come in on the Chiefs’ spread here. As for the moneyline, that is also skewed towards the Chiefs as they have 55% of the money. The total for this game is set at 52.5, but a massive 77% of the money is on the over along with 73% of the bets. 52.5 points is at least seven touchdowns and a field goal, so bettors are expecting a lot of points. That explains why the Chiefs have money on them, as an offensive football game would benefit Kansas City.
49ers Money Leads the Way
Bettors on the NFC Championship are certainly in favor of the 49ers to defeat the Green Bay Packers.
The spread is -7.5, favoring San Francisco, and 68% of the money is on the 49ers. Only 54% of the bets have come in on 49ers -7.5, but a large amount of money has come in on San Francisco so it may just be some low-wager bets on the Packers. The moneyline tells a similar story, as $7.20 of every $10 is being bet on the 49ers moneyline at -345 on DraftKings. The total in this game is a low 45 points, and bettors love this over in warm California weather. 60% of the money is coming in on over 45, and that includes 78% of the total bets.
49ers vs. Chiefs Super Bowl
If the public is right this weekend, we will have a San Francisco 49ers against the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl 54.
With current DraftKings odds being +140 and +160 to win the Super Bowl, respectively, that indicates the public is siding with the books’ predictions for the Super Bowl. The public is usually in favor of the favorites each week in the NFL, so DraftKings Sportsbook will certainly be hoping for a Titans vs. Packers Super Bowl. With Derrick Henry carrying the load for Tennessee and the dominance of the 49ers defense so far in the playoffs, that looks like a steep hill to climb.
