NFC Championship Odds

After coming up short in Super Bowl 58 against the Kansas City Chiefs, the NFC champion San Francisco 49ers are the betting favorites to retain their perch atop the conference.

However, no NFC team since the Russell Wilson-led Seattle Seahawks (2013-14) has gone to the Super Bowl in back-to-back seasons. Can Brock Purdy and Co. end that streak?

As we head into the offseason, let’s take a look at the latest NFC betting odds and pick out our conference winner best bets.

NFC Championship Best Bet

Green Bay Packers (+850)

It’s hard not to be enamored with the upside in Green Bay.

The Packers have a boatload of young talent on offense, led by quarterback Jordan Love, who played at an elite level from the season’s midpoint onwards.

After blowing out Dallas on the road to open the postseason, Matt LaFleur’s squad went toe-to-toe with San Francisco in the Divisional Round.

That 24-21 defeat will be a good learning experience for this young team, which should only get better thanks to five selections in the opening three rounds of the 2024 NFL Draft.

NFC Championship Favorites

San Francisco 49ers (+225)

If you asked me today to pick a team to win the NFC Championship next season, I would probably pick the 49ers.

However, there’s not much value in wagering on San Francisco at this price.

The good news for GM John Lynch is that the spine of this Niners’ team is under contract for at least one more year, so he can retool this offseason for another run at a title.

The bad news is that San Francisco stayed remarkably healthy last season and didn’t capitalize on its opportunity. That’s not a guarantee moving forward.

Detroit Lions (+550)

The Lions entered the 2023-24 NFL season with lofty expectations. And for the most part, Detroit delivered.

Dan Campbell’s squad claimed its first division title since 1993 and then hosted and won two playoff games.

Unfortunately for Lions fans, the annual pain and suffering still arrived in the NFC Championship Game, in which Detroit squandered a 17-point halftime lead thanks to Campbell’s aggressive decision-making and some ill-timed miscues.

The Lions will be among the contenders to win the NFC again next season but must address some concerns in the secondary in both free agency and the NFL Draft.

NFC Championship Contenders

Dallas Cowboys (+850)

Another year, another disappointing ending for the Dallas Cowboys.

After going 8-0 at AT&T Stadium during the regular season, Mike McCarthy’s team laid an egg in the playoffs, allowing Green Bay to score the first 27 points in a 48-32 Wild Card defeat.

Still, this season wasn’t a total disappointment. Dallas took the NFC East title away from the rival Philadelphia Eagles, and Dak Prescott returned to form and played at an MVP level for long stretches of the campaign.

Unfortunately for the Cowboys, Prescott has a $59.4 million cap number in 2024 — the final year of his contract, meaning Jerry Jones may have to extend his QB at his highest value to build a contender around him.

Philadelphia Eagles (+850)

After the way last season ended, I’d be hesitant to put any money on the Eagles right now.

Philadelphia collapsed down the stretch, losing five of its final six regular-season games before bowing out to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Wild Card Weekend.

Nick Sirianni’s squad could lose veteran leadership in the form of C Jason Kelce and DT Fletcher Cox this offseason and desperately needs to plug some gaps on defense after allowing 25-plus points in seven of its final eight games.

Eagles GM Howie Roseman is as shrewd as they come, but this number feels a bit low for a team that has a lot of issues to address.

NFC Championship Sleepers

Los Angeles Rams (+1500)

The Rams are currently priced behind the Bears and Falcons, which doesn’t feel quite right.

Although those teams have more long-term potential, Los Angeles remains in win-now mode with Matthew Stafford, Cooper Kupp, and Aaron Donald.

Plus, Sean McVay’s squad returned to the postseason this past year and arguably could’ve snuck past Detroit had the head coach been a tad more aggressive.

GM Les Snead has hit on a handful of late-round picks in recent years, namely RB Kyren Williams and WR Puka Nacua, giving the older spine of this team a chance to extend its window.

Expect the Rams to be in the mix once again next season.

Seattle Seahawks (+3000)

If you’re looking for a team further down the board, why not take a flier on Seattle?

The Seahawks entered the 2023-24 campaign with high expectations after reaching the postseason the year prior but disappointed in what turned out to be Pete Carroll’s final season.

Former Ravens defensive coordinator Mike Macdonald is an intriguing replacement, especially given Seattle’s struggles on that side of the ball in recent years.

If he can get the best out of this defense, which has talented young cornerstones at corner in Devon Witherspoon and Riq Woolen, Seattle could be one of the more balanced teams in the league next season.

With new OC Ryan Grubb also implementing a different offensive system, the amount of change from year to year is certainly a cause for concern. But there’s enough talent on this roster to compete at the top end of the conference.
