The Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers each opened as a favorite by a touchdown or more as they prepare to host their conference championship games next Sunday.

The second-seeded Chiefs, who rallied from a 24-0 deficit to beat Houston 51-31 at home on Sunday afternoon, were 7.5-point favorites over the Tennessee Titans at DraftKings and FanDuel sportsbooks, while PointsBet had the line at -8.5. All three sportsbooks had the money line on Kansas City between -340 and -370.

The sixth-seeded Titans routed top-seeded Baltimore 28-12 on Saturday night, after taking down New England in Foxborough, Mass., last week. They upset the Chiefs 35-32 in Tennessee on Nov. 10.

The NFC's top-seeded 49ers, meanwhile, were favored by exactly seven points at all three outlets against the second-seeded Green Bay Packers, who beat Seattle 28-23 on Sunday night. The money line on the 49ers ranged from -310 to -323.

San Francisco stomped Green Bay 37-8 in Santa Clara, Calif., on Nov. 24 and will have an extra day to prepare after beating Minnesota 27-10 on Saturday.
