AFC Championship: Kansas City Chiefs vs. Baltimore Ravens Prediction

The AFC Championship Game is set for Sunday afternoon, and it will feature two of the best teams in the league. It will be the Kansas City Chiefs visiting the Baltimore Ravens for the right to advance to the Super Bowl. 

Kansas City is now back in the AFC Championship Game for the sixth year in a row, and they are looking to make a return to the Super Bowl. The Chiefs have defeated the Miami Dolphins and Buffalo Bills so far in the playoffs. 

Baltimore is coming into this game with a ton of momentum as they have been the best team in the league all season. The Ravens blew out the Houston Texans in the Divisional Round, but their task is now getting much harder. 

The Baltimore Ravens are 3.5-point betting favorites over the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship Game.

Dynamic Duo Leading Chiefs

The Kansas City Chiefs were not as explosive on offense this season, but they still have Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce. That duo connected on a pair of touchdowns in the win over the Buffalo Bills, and they will be looking to do damage in this game. 

The emergence of running back Isiah Pacheco has also given this team a new wrinkle on offense, and Kansas City will be looking for balance. Baltimore is going to be coming after Mahomes in this game, and the offensive line will need to hold up as well. 

Kansas City is allowing just 15.5 points per game so far in the postseason, and they have played some great opponents. The Chiefs will have to find a way to spy on Lamar Jackson in order to win this game. 

Ravens Rolling on Offense

The Baltimore Ravens are always one of the best defensive teams in the league, but their offense has been a big key this season. Baltimore averaged over 28.4 points per game during the regular season, and they scored 34 in their first playoff game. 

Lamar Jackson is likely going to win the MVP this season as he threw for 3,678 yards and also rushed for 821 yards. Jackson is always a threat to run the football, but he has been able to hit on some big plays this season. 

The defense for the Ravens was still a great unit this season, and they also racked up 50 sacks during the regular season. Baltimore is going to be coming after Mahomes in this game, and that will be something to watch. 

Chiefs Keep it Close

This game will feature two of the best quarterbacks in the NFL, and both teams are solid on defense as well. The Ravens have a huge advantage of hosting this game in Baltimore, and that should allow them to get off to a fast start in this game. 

It’s just too hard to bet against Patrick Mahomes in the postseason as he always seems to come up with big plays for the Chiefs. The Ravens have been able to get past everyone all season, but they are going to have to grind this win out in what will be a battle. 

Take the 3.5-points and bet on the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship Game as this game will be decided by a field goal or less.
