Vegas sets spreads for NFL conference championships

The final four are set.

The San Francisco 49ers will take on the Philadelphia Eagles in Philly while the Cincinnati Bengals will head to Kansas City to face the Chiefs as all four try to punch their ticket to the Super Bowl.

While last week the 49ers and Cowboys had the tightest spread, next weekend that isn’t the case. San Francisco is a 2.5 point underdog against an Eagles team that had the best record in the NFC for nearly the entire regular season. Philly absolutely demolished the Giants in the divisional round 38-7 after there was chatter that they were candidates to be upset.

Now with their stock back near the top, they face a SF team that didn’t exactly look to be firing on all cylinders in a 19-12 win over the Cowboys.

The Chiefs, meanwhile, are favored by a point over the Bengals, who made quick work of the Bills in an upset in the divisional round. Kansas City beat Jacksonville 27-20 in their game.

Chiefs-Bengals is a repeat of last year’s AFC Championship which the Bengals won 27-24 in overtime. The Bengals also beat the Chiefs in the regular season this year by the same score.

San Francisco has covered the spreads (-3.5 vs. Dallas, -10 vs. Seattle) in both of their postseason wins so far.
