FOX Sports analyst Nick Wright revealed his picks for this season’s AFC and NFC Championship Games and the Super Bowl on “First Things First.”

Wright predicted that there would be a rematch of the Kansas City Chiefs and Cleveland Browns Week 1 matchup in the AFC title game, while the Green Bay Packers and San Francisco 49ers face off in the NFC Championship Game. 

WynnBET currently has the Chiefs as the favorite to win the AFC at +240 odds while Cleveland is tied for third at +700. The Packers (+600) are just behind San Francisco (+550) in the NFC. 

Wright’s Super Bowl pick isn’t anything crazy, as he has the +475 favorite, the Kansas City Chiefs, taking down the Packers to capture their second title in three seasons.

"The Chiefs will annihilate the Packers, kicking Aaron Rodgers out of Green Bay for good and winning their second Super Bowl in three seasons,” Wright said. 

It’s a safe pick from Wright, but it’s hard to argue with his logic in favor of the Chiefs. Kansas City revamped its offensive line with Orlando Brown Jr. and Joe Thuney after it struggled to stop the Tampa Bay Buccaneers pass rush in Super Bowl 55. 

Plus, Aaron Rodgers versus Patrick Mahomes? Who wouldn’t want to see that? 

It is curious that Wright doesn’t believe in the defending Super Bowl Champion Buccaneers to make it to the NFC title game, but it seems he’s counting on a healthy 49ers team to find its form from the 2019 season. 

Green Bay (+1500) has the longest odds of the four teams that Wright picked in the title games to win the Super Bowl at +1500. If you think that his thinking is right but that Rodgers can take down Mahomes, grabbing the Pack at +1500 might be the best value you’ll get ahead of Week 1.
