NFL betting notes - Jalen Hurts remarkable at home

By Mackenzie Kraemer

The 2022 NFL postseason is the most wide open it has ever been entering Conference Championship week. For the first time in over 45 seasons, no team has +200 or shorter title odds entering Conference Championship week. All four remaining teams have similar title odds, and that is reflected in this week's betting lines.

For the third time in the Super Bowl era, neither Conference Championship game has a team favored by at least three points. It has happened twice previously, in 1997 and 1982. Not only that, both conference favorites have flipped in the last week. Last week, San Francisco and Kansas City were favored to win their respective conferences. Despite both teams winning last week, both are now underdogs this week.

Now they are home underdogs for just the second time in Mahomes' career. Kansas City also closed as a road favorite in Cincinnati earlier this season. It is the second time in the Super Bowl era that a team has been a road favorite in a regular-season meeting and then a home underdog in a playoff rematch.
