Who's Favored To Win The 2020 NFC Championship?
Winning the NFL NFC Championship comes with a bit of importance. Since the Super Bowl era began, the team to win the NFC championship has won the Superbowl 27 times while an AFC team has won 26 times. Last season, the NFC featured two of the most dominate and high-powered teams in the league with both the Los Angeles Rams and New Orleans Saints. Both teams made it to last year’s NFC Championship and both have retained their key players from last season so it comes as no surprise that they have the top odds to repeat their same run. As of now, the Los Angels Rams are favored at (+400) betting odds to win the 2020 NFC Championship per Bovada Sportsbook. The New Orleans Saints also have (+400) betting odds to win the conference.
Not too far behind those teams, however, are the Chicago Bears and the Philadelphia Eagles. Both teams faced off in the playoffs last season, but the Eagles advanced on a missed field goal that will forever be known as the ‘Double Doink’. Both teams are healthy and ready to make the playoffs again this season. The Chicago Bears are listed at (+700) betting odds to win the 2019 NFC Championship and the Philadelphia Eagles have the same odds.
Current Odds To Win The NFC Championship
The NFC title is up for grabs every year no matter the current odds to win the NFC Championship. Before the season begins, there is always a chance that a team can go for a magical run and sneak their way into the conference championship. If you don’t believe me just as the 2007 Giant’s team. However, this year specifically showcases some odds that one might expect. As mentioned above, the top contenders to win the NFC championship and head to the Super Bowl are the Los Angeles Rams, New Orleans Saints at (+400) betting odds, and the Chicago Bears and Philadelphia Eagles at (+700).
Although, there are a few sleeper teams with some enticing odds this season. The Packers are coming into this season with a new head coach and a healthy Aaron Rogers. If the two are able to meet eye to eye and if the Packers offensive line can buy their quarterback just a little bit of time, there is a chance that the cheese heads could come out on top of the NFC once more. The Packers are listed at (+1000) betting odds to win the NFC Championship. The current odds to win the NFC Championship also include the Atlanta Falcons at (+1400). While they do play in a tough conference that includes the New Orleans Saints, the Falcons were able to win the NFC championship just a few seasons ago and key players from that team are still there making them a dark horse pick for many sports bettors across the country.
