The final four is set for the 2021 NFL Playoffs. The AFC Championship Game will feature the Kansas City Chiefs hosting the Buffalo Bills. The NFC Championship Game will feature the Green Bay Packers hosting the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Below we’ve got the opening point spreads for the two games. The Bills opened as favorites due to uncertainty surrounding Patrick Mahomes’ concussion, but that line has swung to the Chiefs now sitting as 3.5-point favorites. Bettors clearly think Mahomes will get through the concussion protocol and be able to play this coming Sunday. It’s impossible to predict now what will happen in a week when it comes to a concussion, but feel free to educate yourself on the NFL’s concussion protocol.

Bills vs. Chiefs

Point spread: Chiefs -3.5 (opened at Bills -1.5)
Point total: 50.5
Moneyline: Bills -112, Chiefs -109

Bucs vs. Packers

Point spread: Packers -4 (opened at Packers -3.5)
Point total: 51.5
Moneyline: Bucs +145, Packers -180
