Baltimore Ravens vs. Kansas City Chiefs

January 28, 2024

The 2024 AFC Championship game will take place on Sunday afternoon when the Kansas City Chiefs travel to Baltimore, Maryland to face the Baltimore Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium with the game scheduled to start at 3:00 PM ET and will air on CBS and Paramount+.

The Kansas City Chiefs advanced to the 2024 AFC Championship by defeating the Miami Dolphins in the Wild Card round by a score of 26-7 at home and the Buffalo Bills in the Divisional round on the road by a score of 27-24. The Chiefs have looked like the offense we are used to seeing during the playoffs as they are averaging 26.5 points per game in the playoffs while the defense is allowing an average of 15.5 points per game. Patrick Mahomes has completed 40 of 64 attempts for 477 yards and three touchdowns during the playoffs while Rashee Rice has been the leading receiver with 12 receptions for 177 yards and a touchdown. The Kansas City Chiefs will look to advance to their 2nd consecutive Super Bowl when they face the Baltimore Ravens.

Baltimore has been the best team in the AFC all season and finished the regular season with the best record in the NFL. Lamar Jackson is without question the MVP of the NFL this season and he cemented that on Saturday against the Houston Texans. Jackson completed 16 of 22 attempts for 152 yards and two touchdowns while rushing for 100 yards and two touchdowns. The Ravens have been one of the highest-scoring teams this season as they are averaging the 2nd most points per game in the league with an average of 28.72 points per game while allowing the fewest points per game in the NFL with an average of 16.11 points allowed per game. The Baltimore Ravens will look to advance to their first Super Bowl since the 2012 NFL season when they host the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday afternoon.

BookMaker has the Baltimore Ravens listed as 3.5-point favorites at home against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday afternoon. The teams are 5-5 in the last ten while Kansas City has won two of the last three meetings. The teams are 5-5 ATS in the last ten while the Chiefs have covered the spread in two of the last three games in the series. The Kansas City Chiefs are 11-7-1 ATS overall, 5-3-1 ATS on the road, and 2-0 ATS as an underdog this season while the Baltimore Ravens are 12-6 ATS overall, 6-4 ATS at home, and 10-5 ATS as a favorite on the year.

The Baltimore Ravens are a top 2 offense and have the best scoring defense while Lamar Jackson is likely to win the MVP this year, however, Kansas City has been the better team most recently in the series winning two of the last three meetings while covering the spread in two of the last three matchups. I look for the Ravens to advance to the Super Bowl and get the cover here over the KC Chiefs.
