How the public is betting on Sunday’s Chiefs-Bengals and Eagles-49ers matchups

Chiefs-Bengals. Eagles-49ers. NFL playoff football. Are you ready?

If Sunday’s AFC and NFC championship games are as competitive on the field as they look to be on paper, football fans around the world will be in for quite the treat following a mostly unspectacular divisional round last weekend.

But how well these teams matchup makes betting on the games incredibly difficult, as seen this past week with how frequently the lines moved ahead of the Chiefs vs. Bengals AFC championship game. However, the lines remain at Chiefs -1.5 at BetMGM, although 72 percent of bets and 65 percent of money are on the Bengals moneyline (+105).

The lines in the NFC showdown between the Eagles and Niners haven’t jumped nearly as much as Sunday’s other game. Philadelphia opened as just under field-goal favorites and is still there.

But the most eye-opening bit of betting information is focused on the point totals. At BetMGM, 71 percent of the money is on the final score to finish under 46.5 points. With so much firepower on both offenses, could the score really end up being this low?

Whether you agree with the public or not, be sure to get your bets in before Sunday’s action.
