NFL Grind Down: Conference Championships - DFS Breakdown

Written by Notorious

Welcome to the RotoGrinders NFL Grind Down, an all-encompassing preview of the week ahead in the NFL from a daily fantasy sports perspective. We’ll provide all the statistics, insights and analysis you need to set your lineups for this week’s contests.

Every game will be broken down statistically, with several key elements highlighted in our charts. NFL betting odds are broken down to show projected team totals, to give you an idea of who is favored to win, and often more importantly, how many points they’re expected to score. Each contest is then analyzed team-by-team, with a focus on finding matchups to exploit and trends to follow.

Vegas Overview

TEN @ KCC Team Spread Total Implied Moneyline
KCC -7.5 52.5 30 -345
TEN 7.5 52.5 22.5 285

Betting Quick Take: Let me start by saying I don’t have a strong take on the 7.5-point spread or the 52.5-point total. If the Titans are going to keep this game competitive, they will need another big outing from Derrick Henry and they will look to dominate time of possession. This bodes well for a Titans/under parlay. If the Chiefs are able to jump out to a big lead, the Titans will be forced to air it out more. This bodes well for a Chiefs/over parlay. My favorite bet of the week is to tease the Chiefs and Niners down to 1.5-point favorites. Depending on the book, six-point teasers usually pay 10 to 11 and essentially all you need is for both of the big favorites to win.
