New England Patriots @ Kansas City Chiefs AFC Championship Game Tips, Predictions and Preview

New England Patriots and Kansas City Chiefs will battle it out in the AFC Championship Game at Arrowhead Stadium with a place in Super LIII at stake for the winner.

The Patriots defeated Los Angeles 41-28 in a high-scoring Divisional Round playoff, while the Chiefs kept their Super Bowl hopes on track with a 31-13 victory over the Indianapolis Colts.

Match Preview


In a game where many might be seeing a closely contested match up, NFL bettors will clearly have to go with the Kansas City Chiefs as they host the New England Patriots in the 2019 AFC Championship. 

Both teams have their weapons and their weaknesses but the home-and-away splits simply cannot be ignored in this contest. 

The Patriots have done virtually all of their damage from Foxboro this season as hosts. They went 8-0 in the regular season and won in the divisional round from home last weekend. They have gone 9-0 as hosts all totaled - but the home games are over for the year. 

On the road, New England is 3-5 with recent losses at Jacksonville and Detroit. The bad road record is not likely due to either coaching or their QB. However, something definitely went amiss with the Patriots on the road this season and that's the betting angle you have to take.

That's especially the case given how strong KC have played when hosting. They are 8-1 from home, including their victory in the divisional round. When you compile up the splits, you get a ratio of 13:4 in KC's favour. 

It's true that there are more factors to consider, but those factors won't offset the betting odds that are offered. Take the Chiefs to win at $1.66 with SportsBet.
