The Kansas City Chiefs opened as touchdown favorites over the Cincinnati Bengals in the playoffs, after a wild weekend of upsets.

The Buffalo Bills and the Kansas City Chiefs played a back-and-forth game on Sunday night. The Chiefs were listed as 6.5 point favorites over the Bengals. The line moved quickly to Kansas City.

The Rams opened as 3.5-point favorites over the 49ers.

The only team that was favored to survive the divisional round was the Chiefs. San Francisco, Cincinnati and the Los Angeles Rams all pulled upsets. There have been three upsets in the divisional round of the Super Bowl.

The Bills nearly made it four upsets, something that has never happened in the divisional round of the Super Bowl. With 13 seconds to play, Patrick Mahomes moved the Chiefs into field goal position with quick passes to Tyreek Hill andTravis Kelce, only to have Buffalo take a 36-33 lead. Harrison Butker kicked a 49-yard field goal to force overtime, and Patrick Mahomes connected with Kelce for the winning touchdown on the opening drive of overtime.

John Murray, the executive director of the SuperBook at the Westgate Las Vegas, admitted that he thought the game was over. The admin team started setting up the game. Stunning. We were planning on the Bills.

Adam Pullen said he would have given the Chiefs 10-1 odds to win the game when they started their drive from their 25-yard line down three.

Pullen said he knew it was Mahomes, but 13 seconds. "It had to be 10-1, maybe higher."

There was a thrilling ending to Sunday's game. The SuperBook opened betting on the 49ers-Rams game after Los Angeles took a big lead over the Buccaneers. The sportsbook stopped betting on the 49ers-Rams game because of the rally by the Buccaneers.

The odds were 25-1 for the game to be won by the bay. Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford hit Cooper Kupp on a 44-yard completion with 42 seconds left in the game as the Rams held on for a 27-27 tie. The Rams will face a 49ers team that has beaten them six straight times in the playoffs.

Murray said that the game was as wild as he could remember. At least until the next game.

The consensus favorites to win the Super Bowl are the Chiefs. The Rams are +210 to win the Super Bowl, followed by the 49ers at +450, and the Bengals at +750.
