Updated NFL Odds to Win AFC & NFC Championship

Posted by Derrick Harper on January 5, 2018 in

The National Football League is in the postseason stages. There are 12 teams and will be 11 games with the finale being Super Bowl 52 played in Minneapolis. Wildcard weekend should produce a nice foursome of games, followed by the divisional round and then the championship round. Let’s take a look at the Updated NFL Odds to win the AFC and NFC Championship.

Updated NFL Odds to Win AFC & NFC Championship

AFC

New England Patriots -135

Tom Brady and the Patriots are once again the favorites. The Patriots defense was much better later in the season than it was early. Look for New England to get through the AFC as the favorite.

Pittsburgh Steelers +260

The Pittsburgh Steelers will get a home game in their first postseason game, but that loss not too long ago to New England forces them to give on the road for the AFC title game. The Steelers are not a terrible bet, but certainly an underdog.

Kansas City Chiefs +900

The Chiefs are playing red hot great football right now. Alex Smith will need to make sure he takes care of the football and would be a great idea to get the ball to the rushing leader Kareem Hunt and the speedy Tyreke Hill.

Jacksonville Jaguars +900

The Jaguars have an elite defense and a big tough running back in Leonard Fournette. The major question mark for the Jaguars is their quarterback play. Can Blake Bortles get the job done in the postseason?

Others

  • Tennessee Titans +4000
  • Buffalo Bills +4000

NFC

Minnesota Vikings +165

Case Keenum and the Vikings are the favorites to win the NFC. Many still have question marks regarding the Vikings, especially on the offensive side. The Vikings defense is elite but will face some incredible offensive teams.

Philadelphia Eagles +450

The Eagles are the top seed in the NFC, but Nick Foles is in while Carson Wentz is out. The Eagles defense has seen some holes and will face a couple tough opponents. It’s tough to bet on a backup quarterback in this tough NFC.

New Orleans Saints +450

Drew Brees and Sean Payton have been there and done that in the postseason. Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram have been elite running backs. Can they do it for three games and get to Super Bowl 52?

The NFL Odds for the Saints to win the NFC Tittle are pretty good.

Los Angeles Rams +450

Jared Goff is in his second season as the quarterback of the Rams. The biggest question mark for this team, can he play at an elite level through the postseason? It would benefit Goff greatly to give the football to Todd Gurley.

Atlanta Falcons +1000

The defending NFC Champions are looking to get back to the Super Bowl. The Falcons postseason route will include the Rams, the Vikings and then either the Eagles, Saints or Panthers. That’s a tough route.

Carolina Panthers +1200

The Carolina Panthers are two years removed from going to the Super Bowl. Cam Newton has been really good at times and really poor at other times. If Cam can move the football without turning it over, this team can win. The Panthers are our underdog pick to win the NFC.

Best of luck with all your National Football League betting. We are pumped for the postseason, and our look at the Updated NFL Odds to win the AFC and NFC Championship should give you a pretty good look at what is to come in the postseason.
