NFC Championship Game Jan. 29 Sunday, 3 p.m. ET on Fox

(2) San Francisco 49ers at (1) Philadelphia Eagles (Early spread Eagles -1.5 to -2.5)

This is only the second time the 49ers and Eagles have met in the playoffs. San Francisco won 14-0 in the 1996 Wild Card Round.

AFC Championship Game Jan. 29 Sunday, 6:30 p.m. ET on CBS

(3) Cincinnati Bengals at (1) Kansas City Chiefs (Early spread Chiefs -1 to -1.5)

The Bengals and Chiefs will see a rematch of last year’s AFC Championship Game. Cincinnati won that 27-24 in overtime, which coincidentally also was the final score of the Bengals home win over the Chiefs earlier this year.

These games are locks. The spreads will remain low. Philly -2.5 and Cincy +1.5 will make you money on Sunday.

I wouldn't bet that yet. As it gets closer to Sunday it will be more and more obvious Mahomes is playing and that line will go up.
Also a great spot for a tease if he is convinced of those two sides. You can get Eagles +3.5 and Bengals + 7.5

Well...it's Cincy -1 1/2 to -2 now, so the question is how much more will it move before it swings back.

Wow. Is Mahomes in doubt right now? I like Cincy and think it's a close game, but if you are going to give me Mahomes straight up at home I'm taking it if he looks ok. I guess we will see how practice goes this week. I was hoping for Cincy +5 or 6. I guess I'm not getting that :D

Andy Reid described it as not as bad as the one he had in week 1 (coincidentally against the Jags) in 2019. Threw for nearly 450 yards and 4 TD's against the Raiders. It's more hedge than not, imo.

Short of amputation, Mahomes is playing.

You mean too much being bet on Cincy?
That's my point. Why? Must be at least in part due to concern about Mahomes

Didn't KC start off at like 2.5 to 3.5 favorites? So many people bet on the Bengals with the points they had to adjust the line to get more bets back on KC so they didn't go bankrupt.

Yep.

The line will creep back as the week progresses. Just the public doing their thing.

Yes. Too much was bet on Cincy so far, so the line adjusted. I feel like we are saying the same thing but it's coming out differently.

Only thing's for certain: The cream rose to the top. No question whatsoever that these are the four best teams in the NFL, so to me there are going to be two fantastic games this Sunday. A less than fully healthy Mahomes might be the difference that gives the Bengals an edge, altho the way they've played down the stretch, including that dismantling of the Bills, not sure how much of an advantage they'd need. I think Philly, with their super balance in all phases, should be enough to handle the Niners. Altho Purdy came alive in most of the 2nd half against the 'Boys, that won't cut it against a savage Eagles D. He'll need a complete game from Q1-Q4 for the Niners to win this one.
