Seattle and New England have secured their spot in the NFC and AFC Championship with wins over New Orleans and Indianapolis during the Divisional playoff games on Saturday. Who they will face on Championship Sunday will be determined today as Carolina hosts San Francisco at 1:05 PM ET and San Diego visits Denver at 4:40 PM ET. The 49ers and Broncos are posted as the favorites for these two contests slated for January 12, 2014.
San Francisco: Road favorites for a second straight week
As was the case last weekend, during their 23-20 Wild Card playoff game win against the Packers in Green Bay, the 49ers are posted as slim road chalk again today. Traveling to Bank of America Stadium to face the Carolina Panthers, San Francisco is red hot as they have won seven straight contests. The Panthers, who enjoyed a bye week in the first round of the 2014 NFL playoffs, are just as hot as they won 11 of their last 12 games to close out the 2013 NFL regular season schedule. We’ll back the Niners with -1.5 (-110) price posted at SportsInteraction!
Denver Broncos: Own a Mile High spread over the San Diego Chargers

The Cinderella Chargers are road pups for a second straight week after they beat up on the Bengals 27-10 in Cincinnati during Wild Card playoff action last week.
