The NFC looks to have a loaded playoff field. The Green Bay Packers are the #1 seed in the playoffs and are the favorite to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl. Tom Brady is still in the NFC, and Sean McVay and the Rams have proven to be a tough team to beat in the NFC. We also can’t forget “America’s Team” the Dallas Cowboys are back in the mix. Let’s take a look at the NFC playoff field and see where we think each team will end up so you can place your bets against the NFC Conference Championship Odds.
NFL Betting Projections for NFC Conference Winners
Green Bay +170
The Packers have Aaron Rodgers, and he is one of the best players of this generation. Rodgers has proven that he can win with very little talent. He has a good running game, his offensive line is finally getting healthy, and he has a stud receiver in Davante Adams. If the Green Bay defense can limit its mistakes, the Packers will be in the Super Bowl, and we think that they’ll be in Los Angeles at the big game.
Tampa Bay +340
Tom Brady continues to defy Father Time. Tampa Bay will need its running game to step things up in the postseason, as Brady has lost two of his top three receivers over the last few weeks. Tampa Bay has a very strong defense, but we’re not sure that the defense can carry them to a title.
Los Angeles Rams +450
Sean McVay has proven to be a winner, and he finally has a quarterback that is supposed to be the missing ingredient. Unfortunately, Matthew Stafford has shown a penchant for throwing bad interceptions at crucial times. If he can avoid the mistakes, the Rams have a great shot at winning the NFC. They have a very good defense with star players that know how to win. They’ll play the Packers in the NFC title game, but they won’t be able to stop Rodgers.
Dallas Cowboys +600
While the Cowboys have made strides this season, missing Michael Gallup will be huge for them. Dallas has struggled to run the ball, and that could come back to haunt them. They’ll play a San Francisco team that loves to run the ball and will keep the Cowboys’ offense off of the field. Dallas doesn’t get past the Niners.
Arizona Cardinals +900
While the Cardinals were a great story at 9-0, between injuries and some costly mistakes, the Cardinals have come back to Earth. We’re not sure that Kliff Kingsbury is ready for prime time, and the Cardinals defense that surprised people early on has gotten worse throughout the season. They won’t have enough to outlast the Rams.
San Francisco 49ers +1000
Jimmy Garoppolo has been the scapegoat for most of the 49ers losses this season. He won a huge game against the Rams in the season finale to get the Niners into the playoffs. Their running game will outlast the Cowboys, but we’re not sure that they go any farther than that.
Philadelphia Eagles +2500
While the Eagles exceeded all expectations for the season, their season will end when they play Tampa Bay.
