The final four of the 2022 National Football League season is going to be absolutely fantastic.

In the AFC Championship, we get a rematch between the Chiefs and Bengals, and Patrick Mahomes' ankle is affecting odds across the board.

SportsBetting.ag opened the line Chiefs -2.5 with an over/under of 50.5. Within five minutes, the line moved to Cincinnati -1 and the total dropped to 48.5.


The spread had swung back the other way, and currently shows Kansas City -1.5 with a game total of 47. These odds will be volatile all week as Mahomes' status becomes clearer.

Super Bowl and MVP odds are incredibly tight, and have been impacted by Mahomes' injury, as well.

Last week, Mahomes was a +375 favorite for MVP. He's still favored, but it is extremely close at the top of the board, which you can see below.

In the NFC, the Eagles opened as 3.5-point favorites, but the spread immediately moved to -2.5 and is now Philadelphia -1.5.
