Bookies.com NFL Playoffs Betting Power Rankings
The Baltimore Ravens usurped the New England Patriots as the Super Bowl favorites after Week 12. They assumed the No. 1 spot in the Bookies.com Power Rankings one week earlier.
But now they’re out of the picture entirely, dismantled in shocking fashion by the No. 6-seeded Tennessee Titans in an AFC Divisional Round matchup in Baltimore.
There are just four teams left in the quest for the Lombardi Trophy. All the teams’ odds went down to win it all as the field was cut in half this weekend, of course, but some much more than others. The Chiefs’ (+350 to +135) and 49ers’ (+325 to +160) were cut by more than half, while the Titans’ odds were slashed more dramatically (+700, from +2500). The Packers’ odds barely moved after Sunday’s home win over the Seahawks (+750 to +650).

1. Kansas City Chiefs (12-4) +135
Kansas City became the first team in playoff history to trail by 20 points and win by 20 points in a game. The Chiefs have won seven in a row by an average of 16.9 ppg.
2. San Francisco 49ers (13-3) +160
The Packers are a 7.5-point underdog in the NFC title game, only the fourth time in Aaron Rodgers’ 191 career starts (including playoffs) he’s been at least a touchdown underdog. He lost the other three (but did cover): 2018 at the Rams (7.5), 2015... https://t.co/eWxtnRQKtk— Rob Demovsky (@RobDemovsky) January 13, 2020
The Niners routed the Vikings and now get a rematch with the Packers, a team they dominated 37-8 in Week 12. Prior to Saturday’s playoff win, the victory over Green Bay was the Niners’ last by more than five points.
3. Green Bay Packers (13-3) +650
Matt LaFluer has 14 wins, including playoffs, in his first season as an NFL head coach.— NFL Research (@NFLResearch) January 13, 2020
Only SF George Seifert (17) & IND Jim Caldwell (16) had more wins in their rookie season.
Both Seifert and Caldwell made a Super Bowl appearance that season. #Packers | @packers
Aaron Rodgers totaled 104 yards passing when his Packers got steamrolled by San Francisco earlier. He’s 0-2 vs. the 49ers in the postseason, though Green Bay has won six in a row.
4. Tennessee Titans (9-7) +700
Patrick Mahomes threw for 446 yards against the Titans in Week 10 – a Tennessee victory. The Titans have already beaten the Patriots and Ravens this postseason, too.
