National Football Conference Championship: Futures Odds NFL 2014

San Francisco 49ers Top 2014 NFC Championship Chalk

After sleepwalking through the first half of Super Bowl XLVII (not to mention the first play of the third quarter a Jacoby Jones 108 Kickoff Return TD) it took a power failure at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome to jolt the 2013 NFC Champion San Francisco 49ers to life. It was little to late as the Baltimore Ravens hung on for a thrilling 34-31 World Championship win. The bookmakers at sportsbook.com are obviously impressed with the Niners as they have the defending NFC Champs posted as +350 favorites to repeat the feat. You have to go back 17 years, to the 1996-97 Green Bay Packers, to find the last back-to-back NFC Championship football team.

Four of Six NFL 2013 Playoff Teams Garner NFC 2014 Favorite Status

Along with the Niners, the young and dynamic Seattle Seahawks (+450) the Green Bay Packers (+800) who are perennial top chalk, and the rock solid Atlanta Falcons (+900), all made the playoffs last year. Those clubs make up the top four favorites in the NFC. As for the other 2013 NFC playoff squads, some have questioned whether RG3 can stay healthy in Washington and the Redskins have dropped to +2000 odds while the one hit wonder Minnesota Vikings have plummeted to a +3000 price . Only St. Louis (+3500) and Arizona (+12500) have a longer line than the Vikings. Yours truly makes ONE heart bet a year. Give me the Lions at +2500 ML odds to win the NFC Championship for a Franklin at Sportsbook.com!  It’s going to pay off – maybe soon!
