Falcons-49ers, Patriots-Ravens 2013 Conference Championship odds and kickoff times are set.
Following one of the most dramatic games in sports history in which the Atlanta Falcons blew a 19-point lead, then kicked a late field goal to defeat the Seattle Seahawks 30-28, the Dirty Birds are a field goal home underdog in the battle to represent the AFC and go to the Super Bowl.
The odds for the 49ers vs. Falcons in the 2013 NFC Championship Game has San Francisco (-3) with a total of 47.5. From offshore and Vegas oddsmakers we spoke to, the initial line was going to be (-2.5), but dropped to (-1) when it looked like a Falcons blowout over the Seahawks. The meltdown by Atlanta raised it to (-3).
In the AFC, fresh off their rout of the Houston Texans, the New England Patriots are hosting the Baltimore Ravens. Tom Brady and the Patriots are (-10) with a total of 51.
Both games are Sunday, January 20, 2013. The 49ers-Falcons game is at 3:00 ET with the Ravens-Patriots at 6:30 ET. OffshoreInsiders.com will have the spread winners.
