Patriots, Panthers both open as 3-point favoritesGreg M. Cooper - USA TODAY Sports

The New England Patriots and Carolina Panthers have both opened up as 3-point favorites in early odds for NFL conference championship games for the 2015-2016 season. The Patriots travel to Denver to play the Broncos at 3:00 pm ET on Sunday, while the Panthers host the Arizona Cardinals at 6:40 pm Sunday. The notable difference in these two betting lines is that New England is a 3-point favorite despite playing on the road, while Carolina is only favored by three while playing at home.

 

In a bit of a departure from recent seasons, both conference championship games feature teams that finished with the best records. The Broncos and Panthers are the number one seeds, while New England and Arizona both finished number two.
