AFC Championship Betting – Tennessee Titans at Kansas City Chiefs

AFC Championship Betting – Tennessee Titans at Kansas City Chiefs

All the pressure is on the Kansas City Chiefs, who are now the Super Bowl favorites heading into Championship Sunday. The Chiefs got that distinction thanks to the Tennessee Titans, who upset Baltimore as a 10-point dog last week and also took out the defending champion Patriots on Wild Card Weekend. The Titans are playing with house money and have nothing to lose. Heck, they weren’t even a playoff team until beating Houston on the final weekend of the regular season. And now they are one win away from reaching the Super Bowl behind retread quarterback Ryan Tannehill. Do they have another road upset in them? Oddsmakers pegged the Chiefs as a 7.5-point favorite to reach their first Super Bowl since before the 1970 merger.
