Who are the NFL odds makers predicting to win the NFC Championship this season? Find out which teams we believe hold the best betting value.
NFL NFC Future
Odds and Picks
season is just over two months away, and kick off between the Cowboys and
Giants on opening night will be here before you know it. That’s why we here at
SBR Forum are bringing you future NFL odds for the NFC champ in the NFL. The NFC
should be the power conference in the NFL this season, as there are several
teams, including the defending champs that will be in the mix. However, the
Giants aren’t even in the top five odds favorites to take the NFC this season. Let’s
take a look at some of the favorites as the odds makers rank them and see if
they have any value this early in the preseason.
Green Bay Packers +250
though they lost in the first round of the playoffs last season, the Packers
find themselves as the odds on favorites to win the NFC. They have everything
they need to do it. Their defense will be much improved from last season, and
their offense is as deadly as ever. Although the Packers are the favorites, I
can’t justify putting money on them at this point. They are a great team, but
their division is the toughest in the NFC, and they will have plenty on
Philadelphia Eagles +400
Eagles are back to being the hyped team that didn’t live up to expectations
last season, but this season is looking up for the Eagles. They have another
full season of Michael Vick, (if healthy) and they are still one of the most
talented teams in the NFL. Their offense should once again play well, and if
their defense can continue to improve they will be challenging to beat.
San Francisco 49ers +400
with the Eagles for second place are the NFC runner ups from last season. The
49ers could not get past the eventual Super Bowl champion Giants in the NFC
championship game, and come into this season reloaded and ready for another
shot. Even though I’m still hesitant to give the go ahead, this could be a team
that wins the NFC. If Alex Smith can continue to grow and correctly manage
games, this team has the lock down defense, and now the offensive weapons to
get to the Super Bowl.
New Orleans Saints +700
don’t put much stock in the fact that they will be without their head coach and
signal caller this season, the Saints might just hold the best value of any NFC
team. They would be right up there with the Packers if the bounty scandal didn’t
rock them. The Saints’ offense is arguably the best in the NFC, and if their
interim signal caller can be half the signal caller that Sean Peyton was, the
Saints will be in the NFC championship game.
Chicago Bears +900
out the top 5 are my Chicago Bears. The Bears have stocked up on talent this
offseason, and with the exception of their disgruntled running back, everything
is looking up in Bears’ country. Jay Cutler is going to have to take a big leap
up in his playing ability if the Bears want to win the NFC, but they are two
seasons and one injury removed from the NFC Title game, so it’s not that hard
to believe. If Matt Forte can suck it up and take the seven million dollars he
has ben offered, and Cutler can limit his mistakes, this team can go as far as
any of the above mentioned.
