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. Before KC-New England, the 2019 NFC Championship betting showcase features the Los Angeles Rams (32.9 points per) against the New Orleans [...]

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, [...]

Philadelphia Facing Largest Line in 2019 NFL Playoff Betting

The Philadelphia Eagles landed at Soldier Field last Sunday and handed the Chicago Bears an improbable loss. How improbable? Of the four wildcard games, the Bears offered the most points of any favorite, 6.5. By beating the Bears, Philly gets a chance to avenge the horrible 7-48 loss they suffered at the hands of the New Orleans Saints during the regular season but are yet again a massive 2019 NFL playoff betting underdog. The Eagles used some luck in beating [...]

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. As has been the case all year long, there's been no, true front runner, but the oddsmakers have pushed the New Orleans Saints to the top of the pile by a strong margin. 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 [...]
