  • Thanks to a historically cold forecast, the over/under for Sunday's AFC Championship Game (6:40 p.m. ET, CBS) plummeted in early-week betting.
  • However, an improving forecast for Arrowhead Stadium has this total back on the rise.

From mainstream sports media outlets to right here at The Action Network, the weather for Sunday’s AFC Championship Game between the New England Patriots and Kansas City Chiefs has received plenty of coverage.

As recently as Tuesday, the forecast at Arrowhead Stadium was calling for temperatures around 5 degrees at kickoff, inspiring bettors to jump on the under.

In fact, oddsmakers even moved the over/under Monday afternoon based solely on the weather forecast alone.

Just 24 hours later, however, an improving forecast has the Patriots-Chiefs over/under on the move once again, but this time it’s tracking back toward the opener of 58.5.
