It is down to the final four teams in the NFL playoffs. These are the conference championship games. These two games decide who goes to the Super Bowl. It is a very exciting time for football fans as well a sports bettors.

Kansas City is hosting the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship Game. The Chiefs are favored by three points (-3) and the total is 55 points. Early betting has 56% of the betting public taking the Chiefs at home.

Tom Brady is an amazing 20-3 in the playoffs, an all-time record. Away from Foxborough, he is not nearly as good. He is 3-4 on the road during the playoffs and 1-4 of the last five, including the last two AFC Championship games the Patriots have played away from home (losing 2013 & 2015 to the Broncos and Peyton Manning). Tom is not used to being an underdog.

Still the Chiefs are almost perfect at home. They are 8-1 (counting last week’s playoff win) and 5-4 ATS. The Patriots are 3-5 SU and ATS away from home this season. You can see where we are going with this.

I feel confident the Chiefs can get it done against Tom Brady and the Patriots. The only thing I have concern over is a close game and that is why I am recommending the Chiefs money line. Crazy things happen. Back door covers can ruin a well thought out bet. The best moneyline currently available is Bovada with a KC -145 offering.

More backing stats to support the pick:

  • New England is 2-5 ATS in its last 7 games when playing Kansas City
  • New England is 1-5 SU in its last 6 games when playing on the road against Kansas City
