The NFC Championship is set, and the 49ers are currently touchdown favorites over the Detroit Lions. Despite the Lions looking more impressive in the Divisional Round, the books have more faith in the home side.

The NFL odds for the Conference Championship matchups are hot to go as the best in the AFC and NFC battle for their spot in the Super Bowl, with those games taking place tomorrow.

The San Francisco 49ers avoided disaster in the Divisional Round and will welcome the Detroit Lions in the NFC Championship Game as home favorites. Meanwhile, the Baltimore Ravens, who rolled in their playoff debut, will welcome the Kansas City Chiefs after their nail-biting win in Buffalo.

Here's a look at the opening NFL odds for Championship Sunday and how early action is moving the spreads and totals.

NFL Conference Championship odds, lines, and spreads

AFC Championship: Chiefs at Ravens odds

The look-ahead line before Kansas City’s narrow win in Orchard Park on Sunday night was Ravens -3.5, 44.5 Over/Under. The opening odds for the AFC Championship were pretty much there, with some books as short as Baltimore -3 and some totals as tall as 45.5 O/U.

Eventually, the market consensus simmered down to Baltimore -3.5 with the total at 44.5 points. There are some key injuries to monitor on the Chiefs defense, and the Raves have a scheduling edge getting to play at home while enjoying an extra day of rest after thumping Houston in the Divisional Round on Saturday. 

NFC Championship: Lions at 49ers odds

Look-ahead lines had the 49ers as 6.5-point home favorites and when the NFC Championship matchup was official, books posted that exact opener. It didn’t stick around long, with most sportsbooks taking 49ers action and moving to San Francisco as a cheaper touchdown favorite. As for the total, it opened 50.5 O/U on the look-ahead market and the official opening total followed suit. That took Over money and went as high as 52 points before the market consensus settled in at 51 points.
