Championship Sunday Vegas Spreads
How do Las Vegas oddsmakers view this weekend’s championship games in the NFL?
Packers vs. Falcons, 3:05PM ET, Sunday
According to oddsmakers from Las Vegas sports book MGM Mirage, the Packers opened as a 4-point underdog but the line has been bet up to 4.5. The total, meanwhile, hit the board at a whopping 61 and that’s where it currently sits, although it wouldn’t be surprising to see that number go higher than what it is now.
The road team is 5-0 against the spread in the last five meetings between these two teams while the underdog has cashed in eight of the last 10 meetings. The Packers have also covered in four of their last five games in Atlanta as well.
Steelers vs. Patriots, 6:40PM ET, Sunday
The Patriots hit the board as a 6-point home favorite in Las Vegas and that’s where the number currently sits at the Westgate Superbook, the MGM Mirage and William Hill. Where the number is different is at the Wynn LV, which currently lists New England at -5.5. As for the total, the number opened at 50.5 and has been bet up to 51 at the majority of Las Vegas sports books.
The underdog is 10-4 against the spread in their last 14 games between these two teams but the Steelers have failed to cover in 11 of their last 15 games overall versus the Patriots. New England is also 4-1 against the spread in its last five playoff games while Pittsburgh is just 1-3-2 at the betting window in its last six road playoff games.
