2020 NFL Conference Championship ATS Betting Picks

Written by on January 18, 2020

By the time Sunday comes to an end, we will know which two teams will be going head to head in the Super Bowl. We have already seen more than out fair share of surprises on the road to the Conference Championship Games, but are there still more to come. The biggest surprise of this postseason has been the Tennessee Titans, as the #6 seed in the AFC have somehow managed to knock off the #1 and #3 seeds.

Less surprising is the NFC, as we will be seeing the top two seeds square off in that one, with the Green Bay Packers heading to the Bay Area to meet the San Francisco 49ers. There are a lot of betting options available, so we are going to do our best to break both games down, starting with a look at potential NFL betting ATS plays.

2020 NFL Conference Championship ATS Betting Picks

Tennessee Titans vs Kansas City Chiefs (-7 ½)

Given that the Titans came into the playoffs as the #6 seed in the AFC and needed to go on the road to face higher seeded teams in the opening two rounds, it’s obvious that they have covered the spread in both games. The Titans have been a fantastic bet against the spread for a couple of months now, going 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games. That includes being a perfect 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games played on the road. They are no longer a surprise team, so expect the Chiefs to be well prepared for them this weekend.

If you want to talk about winning streaks against the spread, look no further than the Chiefs. Kansas City are now on a run where they have covered the spread in each of their last 7 games, which includes their 51-31 Divisional Round win over the Houston Texans. At home this season, the Chiefs have gone 6-3 ATS, but it should be noted that they are just 1-6 ATS in the last 7 times that they have hosted the Titans at Arrowhead.

I do have to say that the Chiefs home record against the spread versus the Titans makes me a little nervous, but I am still going to take KC to cover this weekend.

  • Chiefs are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games when playing at home against Tennessee

Green Bay Packers vs San Francisco 49ers (-7 ½)

While the Packers have, at time this season, been a little sloppy and inconsistent, they have still proven to be a very good bet against the spread, going 11-6 ATS on the season. They are 5-3 ATS on the road this season and have gone 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games played in the month of January. They were, though, soundly beaten 37-8 in their last game versus the 49ers and are now just 1-5-1 ATS in their last 7 visits to San Francisco.2020 NFL Conference Championship Games ATS Betting Picks.

The San Francisco 49ers started their playoff run with a very confident looking win over the Minnesota Vikings in a game where they easily covered the spread. The 49ers are now 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games and are also a team that is a good bet in the month of January, going 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games played in that month.

The 49ers essentially destroyed the Green Bay Packers in their regular season meeting, and while I believe that this one is going to be a little closers, I still like San Francisco to cover.
