Patriots vs Broncos Prop Betting Odds

Peyton Manning will pass for 50 yards more than Tom Brady in the AFC Championship Game if one football betting prop is accurate.

Manning’s over-under passing yard prop is 320.5, considerably higher than Brady’s 269.5. It’s a big discrepancy for the game’s biggest QBs in their biggest game of the season.

The Denver Broncos remained favored by four points at Bovada with a total of 56. But the AFC title game props offered even more profit potential.


NFC Championship Game Betting Odds

San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh is 4-2 against Pete Carroll and the Seattle Seahawks, but the Seahawks have covered the spread in the last five meetings between the NFC West rivals.

The two teams will square off for a third time this season on Sunday as the 49ers travel to Seattle for the NFC Championship Game.

Seattle opened as 3.5-point favorites for the game on Sunday. The Seahawks have outscored San Francisco 71-16 in their past two meetings in Seattle, including a 29-3 win this season in Week 2.
