Our very own Scott Shapiro and James Scully join forces to discuss the 2019 NFC Championship betting lines. The New Orleans Saints host the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday, January 20th at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. The home bound Saints are 3.5-point favorites after blasting their way past the Philadelphia Eagles in a tight, divisional playoff game last weekend. Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Rams made short work of the Dallas Cowboys on route to the 2019 NFC Championship game, securing coach Sean McVay’s first playoff win.
Scully and Shapiro explore the Saints’ offensive concerns, a troubling injury to New Orleans’ defensive front, and the outlook of the high-scoring Los Angeles Rams as road dogs. Who do they like and where do they land on both the betting line and the total? Check out their takes below!
