Keep reading for the top play to win the NFC Championship regardless of odds. Let’s get jump right into action so you can bet against the NFC Conference Championship odds.
NFL: Forget the Odds – Who will really win the NFC Championship?
2022 NFC Championship
- When: Sunday, Jan. 30
- Where: TBD
- TV / Streaming: FOX / Fox Sports
Tampa looks like a vulnerable favorite
Before getting to the best play, let’s knock down this idea that Tampa Bay is a lock. In NFL Week 14, the Bucs blew a 17-point lead and almost lost to the AFC’s Buffalo Bills.
Tampa proved that even though they’re a dynamite team overall, their secondary and rushing attack are suspect. Tampa wouldn’t be a good play even if they weren’t the favorite.
Rams and Cowboys are tough to back
A couple of other teams we have trouble backing to win the conference are the Los Angeles Rams and the Dallas Cowboys. The Rams’ have no rushing game to speak of.
Also, LAR’s offensive line is a mess and the defense isn’t as good of a unit as many believe it is. The Cowboys have a decent, but not great defense. Dallas will need a great defense to win the NFC.
WFT is an underdog worth a look
Although they fell to the rival Cowboys in Week 14, the Washington Football Team has the look of a wildcard contender. The WFT has a dynamite defensive line, and an overall good defense, a terrific rushing attack, and an excellent head coach in Ron Rivera.
Should Washington make it the NFC Playoffs, they will have a chance. But the WFT isn’t our top pick.
Green Bay is the top play to win the NFC Championship
The Green Bay Packers will win the NFC Championship. On Sunday night, the Packers yielded 30 points to the Chicago Bears and still blasted their rivals 45-30.
Teams like Green Bay show no quit. The Packers have a hall of fame quarterback in Aaron Rodgers, a great coach in Matt LaFleur, one of the best offenses in the league, and a surging defense.
Even the kicker, Mason Crosby, is one of the best in the league. Not only that, but Green Bay has excuses for all 3 losses.
The Week 1 loss to New Orleans came after a tough offseason. The loss to the Vikings was in Minnesota and against a rival. Rodgers didn’t play in the close loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. It all adds up to the Green Bay Packers being the play to win the NFC Championship.
