NFC Championship Odds Favorite: Brady’s Buccaneers
Ahead of the start of the regular season, Tampa Bay has a healthy bench too. With the injury report being released, the only absence will be cornerback Zyon McCollum, who is trying to heal a hamstring.
The Bucs are heading to AT&T Stadium to open the season against the Dallas Cowboys.
With a 13-4 record last season, the Buccaneers ended the regular season tied with the best record in the conference. Their division projects to be even easier this year, with the Saints, Falcons and Panthers all in rebuilding or retooling mode. With a near guarantee at a good regular-season record, the Bucs should have a relatively easy path to the NFC championship game. With Brady’s record of success in the playoffs, Tampa Bay is a safe bet in NFC championship odds.
Best NFC Championship Odds Value:
Los Angeles Rams +600
Just like the Bengals in AFC championship odds, the reigning champion Rams are good value on the NFC side. Despite losing Odell Beckham Jr. and Von Miller, the Rams still return a team primed to compete in the postseason.
They don’t have many draft picks, so the depth is a bit of an issue, but Matthew Stafford and the gang will almost certainly make the playoffs. Once they get to the postseason, they’re as good a bet as anyone to make it to the Super Bowl.
The Rams dropped their season opener to the Buffalo Bills 31-10. Stafford threw for 240 yards and a score but also tossed three interceptions.
Head coach Sean McVay was disappointed in the outcome, taking to the media to suggest he needs RB Cam Akers to step it up.
The loss was costly in other areas too. Center Brian Allen is out with a knee injury while RB Kyren Williams is sidelined with an ankle injury. The Rams will look to redeem themselves in Week 2 when they host the Atlanta Falcons.
Arizona Cardinals +1800
Looking down the NFC championship oddsboard, we can find some value in the exciting Arizona Cardinals team.
The Cards will welcome back Sunday Night Football by hosting the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 1.
They’ll have to do it missing a few pieces. WR Rondale Moore (hamstring), reserve guard Cory Ford (ankle) and CB Antonio Hamilton (burns) will all be watching from the sidelines.
Even with DeAndre Hopkins suspended to start the year, Kyler Murray has enough weapons in Zach Ertz, Marquise Brown and A.J. Green to keep Arizona competitive. With J.J. Watt rushing passers and one of the better secondaries in football, the Cards are quietly built like a Super Bowl contender, when healthy. With just the ninth-best odds to win the NFC championship, this is some great value.

Reading NFC Conference Odds
When you visit the best NFL betting sites, you’ll see NFC championship odds laid out like this:
The team with the lowest odds is the favorite. For instance, if you think the Bucs at +180 are the team to beat, and you bet $100, you’d get a payout of $280 – your original $100 comes back along with your winnings of $180.
On the other hand, if you think the Packers look good at +1000 and believe they’ll inch their way to an NFC championship, that same $100 would give you a payout of $1,100 – your $100 is returned, coupled with your winnings of $1,000.
Our Odds Calculator will show you how much you’d win based on the odds and amount bet.
What Is A Futures Bet?
This is a bet made on events that have yet to happen. It can be argued that all sports betting is on things that haven’t taken place yet; however, a futures bet can be made weeks or even months in advance.
Before the beginning of the NFL season, oddsmakers look at each team’s records, off-season moves, and schedule to set their odds. As the games are played and coaches are fired, players succumb to injuries, and squads climb or fall in the standings, the odds will change. Because of these line movements, we suggest taking odds you like as soon as you see them.
