Most experts from around the web are favoring the 49ers in the NFC Championship Game.

The Atlanta Falcons, a 4.5-point underdog at home, aren't getting much support around the web in early expert picks against the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Championship Game.

Over at CBS Sports, the experts picking against the spread had decidedly mixed feelings, with most going the way of the 49ers to build a lead larger than the 4.5 points and come away with the victory. Still, three of the eight experts believed the Falcons could make the game closer than the original line.

When it came to straight-up picking, two of those three experts to pick the Falcons against the spread also went with Atlanta straight up, well out-numbered by the six (and the prediction machine) who are sticking with the favored 49ers.

At Yahoo! Sports the story was much the same, as all three experts, Mike Silver, Jason Cole and Les Carpenter, were leaning the way of the 49ers making their way to the Super Bowl.

Even the Yahoo! users favored a 49ers trip to the Super Bowl despite the game taking place in Atlanta.
