Best Line for NFL Conference Championships

Deciding where you're going to place your wagers on the conference championships this weekend should depend upon which team you actually want to lay your money down on. The lines on the games are quite different at various books online so do your homework before placing your bet.

Or, you could let us do the work for you. Let's start with the NFC Championship game between the New York Giants and the San Francisco 49ers. All books have the hometown 49ers listed as a small favorite, but how much they're favored by varies considerably.

If you want to bet on the home-side 49ers your best book right now is TopBet, where they're listing San Francisco as a 1.5-point favorite. If you were planning on going to other way and taking the underdog Giants take a look at Bovada. They have the 49ers listed as a field goal favorite at -3. For the curious there is another line available as well at 5Dimes, where the 49ers are currently listed as a 2.5-point favorite.

In the AFC championship the New England Patriots host the Baltimore Ravens. The Patriots are favored by at least a touchdown at most books, but their big favorites at Bovada. Basically, if you plan on betting on the Patriots you may not want to do it at Bovada where they are a 9-point favorite. However, if you backing Baltimore Bovada should be your book of choice.

For Patriots bettors their best bet is at 5Dimes. They're currently listing New England as a 7-point favorite, the lowest odds from our preferred books. Other odds available on New England include a 7.5-point line at TopBet.
