Las Vegas favors the Broncos in AFC Championship

The Patriots may have trounced the Denver Broncos in their Week 12 matchup this season, but that won’t buy them any favor with Las Vegas oddsmakers.

The Broncos are 5-point favorites against the Patriots in the AFC Championship, making Tom Brady’s claim that the Patriots are underdogs a legitimate one. Playing on the road and against the AFC’s top team, there were bound to be doubters.

In the NFC Championship, the Seattle Seahawks are 3.5-point favorites over the San Francisco 49ers.
