The AFC and NFC Championship Games are officially set. The Tennessee Titans, who will travel to play the Kansas City Chiefs, are 7.5-point underdogs, with the over/under set at 51.5. And in the NFC, the San Francisco 49ers will host the Green Bay Packers as 7-point favorites (total: 45).

We’ll be tracking the betting market for these games all week, but let’s start with a few big bets we heard about right after lines opened.

Odds as of Monday morning and via FanDuel, where Action Network users get a risk-free bet up to $500.

Monday, 8:15 a.m. ET: The MGM Sportsbook at the Beau Rivage Casino in Mississippi took a monster bet on Packers-49ers right out of the gate. MGM told me a bettor wagered $120,000 on San Francisco -7.

The last time these two teams played, the 49ers stomped the Packers, 37-8, so it’s no surprise to see Kyle Shanahan’s crew get significant betting support right away.

Sunday, 10 p.m. ET: The Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook opened the Packers-49ers spread in the fourth quarter of the Packers’ victory over the Seahawks — and it didn’t take long for a huge bet to come in.

One bettor put $55,000 on the 49ers -7. The bet would win $50,000 if San Fran covers against Green Bay for the second time this season.

The SuperBook did not move the spread after taking the bet — it remains 49ers -7. The over/under is at 45 at the time of writing.
