And then there were four.
The Bengals meet the Chiefs Sunday afternoon in the AFC Championship, followed by 49ers vs. Rams in the NFC. The winners of go to the Super Bowl.
Kansas City was the preseason favorite (+450) in this market.
The Chiefs entered the playoffs second in the odds behind Green Bay — which lost to San Francisco in the Divisional Round — but are now back into the chalk role heading into football’s version of the Final Four.
History favors the 49ers against the Rams — San Fran’s taken six straight over the NFC West rival — but L.A. is playing arguably its best football at the proper time, fresh off an upset win over the reigning champion Tampa Bay Bucs.
The Bengals, meanwhile, were 150-1 at one point before the season. They’re now down to a meager 8-1, though they’ll be touchdown-sized underdogs at Arrowhead this weekend.

Kansas City’s +120 price tag implies the franchise ships the title north of 45% of the time.
The Chiefs were upset by the Bengals in Cincinnati back in Week 17. K.C.’s covered eight of the last 10 overall, plus six of the last seven home playoff games.
2. Los Angeles Rams (+210)
An all-star lineup rife with upside is hitting its stride, outscoring opponents 64-38 over the first two playoff games.
The Rams’ 6.0 yards per play is just 0.1 behind the Chiefs for the league lead. L.A. quarterback Matthew Stafford has covered five of the last six versus the NFC for a franchise that was 8-1 to win the Super Bowl following the regular season.
3. San Francisco 49ers (+475)
It hasn’t been pretty, but the 49ers continue advancing, despite being lined underdogs in the first two playoff games.
Believe it or not, San Francisco clocked out the regular season with 6.1 yards per play – the best mark in football.
However, the defense has been the better unit, allowing just 4.6 yards per play combined versus two high-octane offenses in Dallas and Green Bay.
San Francisco eked out an upset win over L.A. in the regular-season finale. One more win, and Kyle Shanahan and Co. are back in the Super Bowl for the second time in three years.
4. Cincinnati Bengals (+800)
Quarterback Joe Burrow didn’t let nine sacks throw him off track Saturday. He posted 378 passing yards while completing better than 75% of his passes in a win over the Titans.
The Bengals’ 150-1 price tag before the season was the third-longest of any team in history to reach the Divisional Round last week.
Cincinnati’s red-hot against the spread, covering six straight dating back to the regular season.
