Early money coming in on Carolina, New England

LAS VEGAS -- The matchups for the AFC and NFC Championship Games are set, and if the oddsmakers are spot-on again, we could have just as much drama as we saw in the divisional playoff games this past weekend.

We have the No. 1 and No. 2 seeds from each conference facing off with both games lined right around a field goal. The New England Patriots are a three-point road favorite (with added juice of -120) at the Denver Broncos, and the Carolina Panthers are also a three-point home favorite (also at -120) over the Arizona Cardinals. This comes after a weekend in which all four won as home favorites, but the games all came down to the wire. The victors were only 2-1-1 ATS, and all four were one-score games and within a six-point teaser for both sides.
