It only makes sense that the race to Super Bowl LIII comes down to these four teams. The Kansas City Chiefs, New England Patriots, New Orleans Saints and Los Angeles Rams will compete in the conference championship games after earning the top seeds in the 2019 NFL playoffs.

The early betting odds indicate that the four remaining teams are just about even. Kansas City is a three-point favorite at home over New England in the AFC Championship Game, according to the consensus point spreads at OddsShark. The betting line for the Rams’ visit to New Orleans favors the Saints by 3.5 points.

As the biggest favorite Sunday, New Orleans has the best odds to win Super Bowl LIII, though all four teams are very close. The Saints have better than 2/1 odds, and the Chiefs are right behind them with 5/2 odds. Both the Patriots and Rams have better than 4/1 Super Bowl odds as they head on the road.

A Super Bowl matchup between the Saints and Chiefs is considered to be the most likely outcome. That would pit the top two MVP candidates against each other. Patrick Mahomes is expected to win the award, and Drew Brees might be the runner-up.

A Rams-Patriots Super Bowl is thought to be the least likely matchup.

New England has made three of the last four Super Bowls and eight straight conference title games. It's been a decade since any of the other three teams have played in the Super Bowl.

The two title games are expected to be high-scoring affairs. The total is 57 points for both contests.

Kansas City had the No.1 offense in the 2018 season with more than 425 yards and 35 points per game. Los Angeles ranked second in both categories. New Orleans was third with 31.5 points per game, and New England was fourth with a scoring average of 27.3 points.

The Patriots led all teams in the divisional round with 41 points. The Saints scored 20 points, and they were held below 20 points in two of their previous five games.

New England beat Kansas City by a field goal at Gillette Stadium earlier this season. The Saints beat the Rams by 10 points in New Orleans in Week 9.
