Public Backing Chiefs, 49ers on Sunday

NFL Championship Sunday Betting, 1/15/20 Public Backing 49ers & Chiefs

We’re still a few days away from Championship Sunday in the NFL but as of right now, our public betting data shows that bettors are backing the two home favorites this weekend. That said, does the public like the Chiefs or Niners more?

AFC Championship Game Betting

According to our NFL Public Betting page, 60% of betting tickets are on the Chiefs to cover the 7.5-point spread against the Titans this weekend. Tennessee is a perfect 2-0 against the spread, beating New England as a 4.5-point road underdog in the Wildcard round and Baltimore as a 10-point road dog in the Divisional round last Saturday night. Kansas City, meanwhile, rallied from down 24 points in the first half to blast the Texans and cover as a 9.5-point home favorite.

The Titans have owned the Chiefs of late, beating them in three straight games and covering in four straight. The Titans are also 5-1 against the spread in their last six games versus the Chiefs at Arrowhead, while the road team is 8-2 against the number in the last 10 meetings between these two teams. The underdog is also 4-0 at the betting window in the last four meetings between these two squads.

NFC Championship Game

While the Chiefs are receiving 60% of betting tickets right now, 57% of betting tickets are on the 49ers to cover as a 7.5-point home favorite against the Packers for the 6:40 p.m. ET matchup in Santa Clara. The 49ers won and covered versus the Vikings in the Divisional round, while the Packers beat the Seahawks by five when the spread was 4.5. The total for Sunday’s NFC title game currently sits at 45 points after also opening at that number.

The over is 7-3 in the last 10 meetings between these two teams while the Packers are 2-5 against the number in their last seven games versus the 49ers, which includes the Week 12 meeting at Levi’s Stadium. Rodgers has struggled in NFC title game appearances, posting a 57.80% completion percentage to go along with four touchdowns and five interceptions. His 6.50 yards per attempt average in the NFC Championship Game is lower than his 7.97 YPA mark in the Wildcard round, his 7.64 YPA mark in the Divisional round, and his 7.79 mark in the Super Bowl. The Packers are also just 1-2 in the NFC title game with Rodgers under center.
