AFC Championship Odds: Will The Titans Pull Another Upset?

  • The Kansas City Chiefs are coming in as seven and a half point favorites
  • Patrick Mahomes put on a show in the divisional round win against the Texans.
  • Ryan Tannehill and the Titans upsets are the stories of the playoffs so far.

KANSAS CITY, Mo.-This Sunday, the AFC’s Super Bowl representative will be decided between the Tennessee Titans and the Kansas City Chiefs.

Both teams are coming off of big statement wins with dominant QB performances. Kansas City is coming in as a 7.5 point favorite to advance to the Super Bowl, but will the Titans upset streak continue?

Patrick Mahomes Dominant Play

Statistically one could argue that Patrick Mahomes is already one of the best QBs of all time. Despite missing two and a half games due to a dislocated kneecap injury, Mahomes still managed to throw for the seventh-most yards in Chiefs history with 4,031 passing yards.

His legendary arm was on full display during last week’s division game where, despite going down 24 early, the Chiefs torched the Texans. The 51-31 win over the Texans made the Chiefs the first team in NFL history to win by 20 after trailing by 20

Mahomes broke records of his own becoming the first player to have at least 300 passing yards, 50 rushing yards, and at least 5 touchdowns in a playoff game. To add icing on the cake, Mahomes became the youngest QB to ever throw 5 TDs in a playoff game.

There is no wonder why the oddsmakers have the Chiefs as -330 favorites to close the game out. The Titans are coming in as major underdogs, but this is no strange territory for Tennessee.

Surprising Everyone

The Titans were not supposed to make it this far. They finished the season with a 9 and 7 record and were just 4 and 4 at home. No one saw them possibly ending the Patriots dynasty with a 20 to 13 victory in the wild card game. And even less saw their defense stopping MVP favorite Lamar Jackson with a 28 to 12 divisional-round victory.

The Tennessee Titans have been the underdogs in every playoff game they played this postseason, yet somehow they have won. The Titans were a +183 underdog vs the Patriots and a +360 underdog against the Ravens. Coming into Sunday’s mashup with the Chiefs, the Titans are a +265.

The last time the Titans and Chiefs saw one another, the Titans were able to scrape away a 35-32 win in Nashville. This time the Chiefs are the hosts in this AFC championship mashup.

The seven and a half point spread has the Chiefs at -105 while the Titans are -115. The O/U is 53 with the Over at -115 and the Under at -105.
