2019 NFC Championship Betting – LA Rams vs. New Orleans Saints -3.5

The 2019 NFC Championship betting matchup take place this Sunday and wouldn’t you know it? The four highest-scoring teams in the league battle it out for the golden ticket to Super Bowl 53. In the AFC, the highest-scoring team in the NFL, the Kansas City Chiefs, host the fourth highest-scoring team, the New England Patriots, as natural home favorites.

Scott Shapiro’s NFC Championship Game Analysis- Los Angeles Rams at New Orleans Saints

The first of two rematches on Championship Sunday in the National Football League pits the two-seeded Los Angeles Rams against the top-seeded New Orleans Saints, and like their first encounter, this contest is in New Orleans at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, but unlike that first game, I do not anticipate this being as high-scoring as it was in Week 9 when both teams peaked on the offensive side of the ball. The Rams were the early favorites to win the Super [...]

Updated 2019 Super Bowl Futures – Rams Are Technically “The Longshot”

The recently updated 2019 Super Bowl futures essentially took the prices heading in to last week, and shaved somewhere between 25 and 40 percent off the top. The math checks out, but what's perhaps the most interesting element is just how tight these numbers are. There aren't any true longshots. There are no, crazy, underdog stories. Even the betting lines themselves are hovering around the natural home line, with the Saints posting as -3.5 favorites at home against the Rams, [...]

Scott Shapiro’s NFL Playoffs Selections and Analysis- Saturday’s Divisional Round

After a Wild Card round that was kind to those who backed underdogs, another great slate of playoff games is on tap this weekend in the National Football League. History suggests that relying on dogs to get the job done in the divisional round both outright or against the number can be a dangerous endeavor, but I think this season is unique. In years’ past, the majority of top seeds come into the playoffs playing their best ball, but I [...]

2019 NFC Divisional Round Betting – Cowboys Surging In To Los Angeles

The Dallas Cowboys held on for a 24-22 victory over the Seattle Seahawks in a thrilling wildcard game last Saturday. For their efforts, America’s Team gets a date with the Los Angeles Rams at the L.A. Memorial Coliseum on Saturday, January 12 in 2019 NFC Divisional Round betting.

Odds to win Super Bowl Llll – Saints Posting As Clear +225 Favorites

Three underdogs pulled outright upsets in the Wild Card round. That runs the against the spread record to 10-0 since last year's playoffs. The race to win the Vince Lombardi trophy looks wide open.

They are nearly half the price of the Kansas City Chiefs, who are [...]

Saints Top 2018 NFC Playoff Futures Ahead of Wild Card Weekend

As we might expect, odds on teams to win the NFC follow seedings. First seed New Orleans is a solid +110 favorite, the 2-seed Rams are a solid second choice while 3-seed Chicago offers the third lowest odds. The Cowboys, Seahawks, and Eagles, the fourth, fifth, and sixth seeds, follow. The question is which of the lower ranked teams has the best value when it comes to laying long action in the 2018 NFC playoff futures. The odds disparity between [...]
