The odds for next weekend's AFC and NFC Championship games have now been released.

In case you have been living under a rock, the AFC Championship game will pit the Indianapolis Colts vs the New England Patriots, while the NFC Championship game will see the Packers head to Seattle to take on the defending Super Bowl champions.

The early Vegas lines have the Patriots as 7.5 point favourites, while the Seahawks are 7 point favourites to beat the Packers.

Here are the totals:

Patriots/Colts, 54 points
Seahawks/Packers, 46.5 points


Here are the updated Super Bowl odds:

Seahawks, 5/4
Patriots, 8/5
Packers, 5/1
Colts, 8/1


The Packers chances of beating the Seahawks will be dampened by the lingering injury to Aaron Rodgers. Sure, he is still one of the top QBs in the NFL, even with a torn calf muscle, but staying out of the clutches of the "Legion of Boom" with a nagging injury will be a tall task.

In the AFC game, Andrew Luck will continue to build on his legend when he travels to New England to take on Tom Brady and the Patriots. Can Andrew Luck beat Peyton Manning and Tom Brady on the road in consecutive weeks?

Next week should be a tremendous weekend of football - who do you think will come out the winners?
