This Sunday starting at 2 PM (GMT-6) we will have the NFC and AFC conference finals. These matches will decide which teams make it to the Superbowl in Arizona, so some pretty intense matches are expected in just a few days. This is how the mummies came out in Caliente.mx
San Francisco 49ers @ Philadelphia Eagles (NFC)
San Francisco will visit Lincoln Financial Field for a tough game where they will face the Eagles, the favorite team (along with Chiefs) to take the Vince Lombardi.
As of today, the lines for this game opened with Philadelphia favorite by 2.5 points, while the points stand at 45.5.
Obviously it goes without saying that the Eagles is the favorite to take the NFC championship, with an odds of -143; but 49ers is not an easy rival and pays a good +110.
The problem for San Francisco could be the pressure that rookie QB Brock Purdy will feel, who until now has not faced a situation in which he has to solve the game himself, so facing the best team in the NFL will not be an easy task. .
Eagles comes to this meeting quite relaxed, after having rested the first week of the postseason and beating the Giants by a great difference of points (38-7).
San Francisco, for its part, managed to beat Dallas thanks to specific errors by Dak Prescott, who turned the ball over a couple of times at key moments in the game.
As far as scorers go, Christian McCaffrey is the favorite to get a TD to his name as he pays -138, followed by AJ Brown, with a positive odds of +120. Here we have to be a little careful with the running back from San Francisco since it is reported that he has an injury that will be updated day by day to know that he could play so much next Sunday.
Cincinnati Bengals @ Kansas City Chiefs (AFC)
Perhaps this duel is one of the most even in recent years in the finals of the American NFL conference. The Bengals will visit a Chiefs who have struggled when it comes to playing Joe Burrow.
Burrow vs. Mahomes is probably a duel that we will be able to see over the next few years as a classic, showing that they will fight for position 1 and 2 of the best QB in the league and the odds for this game accompany this thought.
Kansas had originally been favored by just one point, but just hours after this, the handicap line moved to +0 for the Chiefs and -0 for the Bengals. What does this mean? Basically that Cincinatti (the defending champion) is a slight favorite despite being in Arrowhead.
All of this has a first and last name: Joseph Lee Burrow. This QB of 26 will face Patrick Mahomes for the fourth time. And in just 4 years in the league, he already has a record of 3 wins and zero losses against Kansas. This including last year’s final, where the Bengals prevailed in overtime by a score of 27-24.
Mahomes looks like he could struggle to face a Bengals defense that allowed the Bills just 10 points in their previous game and now he could do the same for the season’s next MVP.
In this matchup, we don’t have a clear favorite as they both pay -108 to win the match and go to the Superbowl. The points for this match are 47 (-110), a figure that was exceeded in the three confrontations between Burrow and Mahomes, with 51 points in two games and 65 in another.
Do you think that Patrick Mahomes will finally be able to beat Burrow’s Bengals and reach the Superbowl once again? We will find out this Sunday.
