The 49ers and Ravens both won their conference's respective championship games and will play for the Lombardi Trophy in two weeks.

The early odds: The 49ers are favored by five points over the Ravens, according to Pregame.com's RJ Bell.  

The over/under is 50 points.

The Ravens are underdogs, which isn't anything new. They became the first underdog ever of more than a touchdown to win a Divisional round game and a Championship game (records have been kept since 1978).

Joe Flacco, the Ravens' quarterback, has six road playoff wins after Sunday. That's more than anyone ever.

If you had a hunch before the season began, the 49ers' odds were 17-to-1, which means a $100 investment would yield $1,700. The Ravens' odds were 14-to-1, so $100 would win $1,400.
