Welcome to Championship Weekend. All throughout the week we've tracked and analyzed the spread and total for the two big games. Here is the latest betting update roughly 24 hours to kickoff.
-In the AFC Championship game, two-thirds of bets are laying the points with Kansas City yet the line has fallen from Chiefs -7.5 to -7, signaling smart money backing the road dog Titans at + 7.5. The total has risen from 51 to 53 since opening.
-The public is relatively split when it comes to the NFC Championship. Just over half the bets, but also some sharps, are backing the home favorite 49ers which has pushed the line from San Francisco -7 to -7.5. Pros and Joes have also targeted the over, moving the line from 45 to 46.5.
For more analysis and betting updates, be sure to join Michael Lombardi, Patrick Meagher and myself this morning from 9 a.m-noon ET on The Lombardi Line. We'll be breaking down Saturday sharp action for both NFL games, plus NBA and College Basketball smart money.
One thing we haven't discussed this week: prop bets.
Also known as "exotics" or "fun bets," propositional bets can be any bet on the game that isn't the conventional spread, moneyline or over/under. Bettors have a plethora of prop bets available to them this weekend.
Let's discuss a handful of props available at Circa Sports.
