Super Bowl Exact Matchup Betting Odds

With a pair of rematches from regular-season games this year scheduled to take place in Sunday’s AFC and NFC Championship Games there is just one possibility of a second meeting between two teams in the 2015 Super Bowl.

That would be the AFC’s top-seeded New England Patriots against the NFC’s second-seeded Green Bay Packers, who won the first meeting 26-21 as 1.5-point home favorites in Week 13.


NFL Betting Trends: Conf. Championships

Five of the six NFL conference title games over the past three seasons have turned out to be UNDER results for totals bettors at the sportsbooks as we take a look at this weekend's betting trends for the AFC Championship Game and the NFC Championship Game.


NFL Conf Champ Underdog Betting Angles

With each of the previous seven NFC Championship Games decided by seven points or less, the Green Bay Packers would seem to be a good bet considering they are consensus 7.5-point underdogs visiting the defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.

In fact, recent history in conference title games suggests the second-seeded Packers also have a great shot to upset the top-seeded Seahawks if they cover the spread.


NFL Betting: Conf. Championships Props

Will Jordy Nelson record the most receiving yards in the NFL this weekend? The Green Bay Packers wide receiver is one of the betting favorites on that prop wager at online sportsbook Bovada as four teams prepare to battle for two berths in the Super Bowl in this weekend's AFC and NFC conference championship matchups.


NFL Conf Champ Rematch Betting Angles

The AFC Championship Game is almost always a rematch of a regular-season game, but the revenge factor hasn’t produced much of a handicapping angle for bettors.

This will be ninth time in 11 years that there will be a rematch of a regular-season game in the AFC Championship Game.

In the previous 10 years, the AFC Championship Game was a rematch eight times. The loser of the regular-season meeting(s) has won the rematch four times both straight-up and against the spread. In the four times the winner of the regular-season meeting won the rematch, the winner went 3-1 ATS.


Denver Broncos Next Coach Betting Odds

When the Denver Broncos and former head coach John Fox decided to mutually part ways on Monday rumors began to swirl regarding his potential replacement. Fox led the Broncos to the playoffs all four years he was at the helm, including a Super Bowl appearance in 2014 that resulted in a 43-8 loss to the Seattle Seahawks.


NFL Computer Picks: Conf. Championships

The Seattle Seahawks have been hovering around a touchdown favorite for the NFC Championship Game against the Green Bay Packers at CenturyLink Field on Sunday afternoon, but the OddsShark Computer thinks they will have a hard time covering that posted spread.

As of Tuesday morning the Seahawks were being listed as 7.5-point home favorites against the Packers with a berth in the Super Bowl on the line on Sunday, but the OddsShark Computer had them winning SU by a score of only 35.9 to 31.8 - which would provide an ATS win for Green Bay supporters.


Peyton Manning Betting: Will He Retire?

Peyton Manning seemed to get old really fast in the second half of the season.

And when he refused to commit to returning to the Denver Broncos next season in the wake of a home upset loss to the Colts, speculation ran rampant – is Peyton Manning going to retire?

The odds, at least those set this morning by Bovada, suggest not.

They set the ‘no’ answer as a big -700 favorite position (wager $70 to win $10) with the ‘yes’ as a 4-1 underdog bet (bet $10 and win $40).


NFL Opening Lines: Conf. Championships

The Seattle Seahawks covered a 4.5-point spread in a win over the Green Bay Packers to open up their season, and they're listed as even bigger favorites on the opening betting lines at the sportsbooks for their rematch with Aaron Rodgers and company in the NFC Championship Game.

The Seahawks topped the Packers 36-16 back in Week 1 for the SU and ATS home victory, and the sportsbooks set them as opening 7.5-point home favorites as Green Bay visits Seattle with a berth in the Super Bowl on the line on Sunday.


NFL ATS Results: The Divisional Playoffs

Not only did the Seattle Seahawks keep their quest for a second straight Super Bowl title alive over the weekend, but they also managed to cover the biggest spread on the NFL betting board for the Divisional Round of the playoffs.

The Seahawks had been listed as 10.5-point home favorites against the Carolina Panthers on Saturday night, and they rolled to the SU and ATS victories with a 31-17 win. Russell Wilson threw for 268 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions for Seattle against Carolina.
