NFL conference championship weekend brings with it only two matchups, but we've found a way to create a three-leg teaser for the action.

The pregame narrative: The Philadelphia Eagles are small favourites against the San Francisco 49ers, and we're teasing them down. We're banking additional points with the Kansas City Chiefs against the Cincinnati Bengals, as well as cushioning one of these game totals and backing the under.

NFL conference championship teaser picks

Bet No. 1: Eagles -2.5 to +5.5 (-286)

Philadelphia looks the part of a complete football team which is why we like pocketing 5.5 points with the home team.

Beating the Eagles is already tough enough, but winning by margin seems like a tall task for San Francisco or any squad for that matter. The Eagles are able to win games multiple ways on offence.

49ers/Eagles SGP boost: 49ers +3.5, DeVonta Smith 60+ receiving yards & under 47.5 points (+490, was +410). Click to bet

In a rout against the New York Giants, Philadelphia leaned on the ground game. The rushing attack totalled 268 yards on 44 carries, good for 6.1 yards per carry. But passing the ball isn't an issue with Jalen Hurts under centre and elite receiving options surrounding him.

A.J. Brown's a talented WR1 while DeVonta Smith has cleared 60 receiving yards in seven consecutive contests. Dallas Goedert's return is a big deal, too, as he caught all five of his targets for 58 yards and a touchdown last Saturday.

KC -2.5, Chase & Kelce 80+ receiving yards each+660 (was +550)Add to betslip

The defence is stout, ranking fifth in DVOA, according to Football Outsiders. It's also facing a 49ers offence that averaged an abysmal 5.0 yards per play against the Dallas Cowboys.

Injury concerns are worth noting for both Deebo Samuel (ankle) and Christian McCaffrey (calf) as neither was effective on Sunday.

Other teaser picks

Bet No. 2: Chiefs +1 to +8 (-335): Kansas City flipped from favourite to underdog after this line opened, but some positive injury news regarding Patrick Mahomes may cause it to change again.

The superstar quarterback suffered a high-ankle sprain in the team's win over the Jacksonville Jaguars in the divisional round. While the ailment will almost surely impede his mobility, he still possesses elite arm talent.

SUPER BOOST: Mahomes & Burrow 2+ passing TDs each & over 50.5 points (+320, was +215). Click to bet

Don't let Mahomes' injury distract you from Cincinnati's litany of offensive line injuries.

A main discussion point last week, the likely absences of all three of Alex Cappa (ankle), La'el Collins (knee) and Jonah Williams (knee) this weekend will be a bigger issue against a Chiefs pass rush that features Chris Jones and Frank Clark than it was against a Buffalo Bills team missing Von Miller.

Although Joe Burrow's Bengals are 3-0 against the Chiefs, they've won each contest by three points exactly. Banking more than a touchdown with Kansas City in what profiles as a one-score game is a good wager.

Bet No. 3: 49ers vs. Eagles under 53.5 points (-286): A matchup between two of the best scoring defences shouldn't yield too many points, making the under on this total a strong bet.

No team's allowing fewer points per game this season than San Francisco (16.4). The defence is surrendering a minuscule 17.5 points per contest in the playoffs thus far.

The offence is also coming off a game where it scored just one touchdown against an elite defence, something it'll see again in the conference championship.

The Eagles are surrendering the sixth-fewest points per game (19.5) this season. They bullied New York's offence last weekend, holding the Giants to only seven points. The under on this total has hit in four of Philadelphia's last five games.

This also isn't a great spot for Brock Purdy's first-ever road playoff game.

The rookie quarterback is facing an Eagles defence that led the NFL in sacks (70) and ranked second in pressure rate (25.5%). He'll likely be under siege in a hostile environment at Lincoln Financial Field.
