    Here are some notes on the AFC Championship odds movement:

    • [September 13] The Bills still have the second-best odds to win the AFC Championship after being upset by the Steelers in Week 1. The Chargers and Broncos both saw their odds improve significantly after impressive wins in Week 1.
    • [August 31] New England’s odds to win the AFC Championship did not change after cutting former NFL MVP Cam Newton, putting Mac Jones in the starting role for Week 1
    • [August 17] Despite a good outing in Week 1 of the NFL Preseason, the Broncos have seen their odds to win the AFC Championship fade from +1600 to +2000, dropping from the seventh-best odds to the tenth-best
    • [July 24] Denver’s AFC Championship odds continue to fade as the team has continued to stay put with Drew Lock and Teddy Bridgewater at quarterback.
    • [June 7] Tennessee’s odds to win the AFC improved from +1800 to +1200 after trading for wide receiver Julio Jones. The Titans are now tied for the fifth-best odds in the conference.
    • [May 3] Denver’s odds to win the AFC Championship jumped from +2800 to +1200 thanks to the rumors connecting them to Green Bay’s disgruntled quarterback, Aaron Rodgers.
    • [April 23] The Bills have overtaken the Ravens for the second-best odds to win the AFC Championship. Cleveland’s odds have also shortened significantly, going from as long as +1200 to +900 after also adding Jadeveon Clowney.
    • [March 14] After completely retooling their offense via free agency – Jonnu Smith, Hunter Henry, and Nelson Agholor, among others – the Patriots’ odds to win the AFC Championship improved from around +2100 to +1800.

    • [February 7] The Kansas City Chiefs have opened as the favorites to win the 2022 AFC Championship. They have won the conference each of the last two years.

      Odds as of September 14

      Here are some notes on the NFC Championship odds movement:

      • [September 13] The Packers’ NFC Championship odds didn’t worsen much after being demolished by the Saints in Week 1. The Rams have the second-best odds to win the conference after an impressive win over the Bears on SNF. Philadelphia saw the biggest movement, going from as long as +5000 to +2500, after hammering the Falcons.
      • [August 17] The Packers have leaped the Rams and 49ers in the NFC Championship odds with Aaron Rodgers ready to start Week 1.
      • [July 26] Green Bay’s odds to win the NFC have gone from +1800 to +800 with the news of Aaron Rodgers planning to play for the Packers this season.
      • [July 24] The Minnesota Vikings have seen their NFC Championship odds improve to +1400 as Green Bay’s odds continue to fall because of Aaron Rodgers’ firm stance on not playing for the Packers in 2021.
      • [May 3] Green Bay’s odds to win the NFC Championship have faded from +500 to +1000 due to Aaron Rodgers’ future with the team being very uncertain.
      • [April 23] The Panthers odds have fallen way off with the team’s solution at quarterback being Sam Darnold, not Deshaun Watson. Carolina was as short as +1800 while they were reportedly in discussions to make a big splash at QB, but are now a distant +2500.
      • [March 14] The Saints’ odds to win the NFC conference faded after Drew Brees announced his retirement, leaving Taysom Hill and Jameis Winston as New Orleans’ options under center
      • [March 13] After re-signing many of their key players from their Super Bowl-winning team, the Buccaneers have broken away as the favorites to win the NFC Championship.
      • [February 7] The Buccaneers and Packers opened as co-favorites to win the NFC Championship in 2022. The two teams met in the NFC Championship last season.

      Some trends to consider before placing any wagers on who will win the 2020 NFC Championship game:

      • Since 1999, only one team has repeated as NFC Champions: the Seattle Seahawks in 2014 and 2015
      • The NFC’s no. 1 or 2 seed has represented the conference in the Super Bowl eight of the last nine years
      • No NFC North team has won an NFC Championship since 2011 – the Green Bay Packers
      • The Detroit Lions are the only NFC team who has never won the conference championship
