The National Football Conference, NFC, was, along with the AFC, created in 1970 when the American Football League and National Football League merged. At the time there were 26 teams, but that number has since grown to 32. Generally, the parity is greater among NFC teams. There is only one team from the NFC that has never made it to a Super Bowl, the Detroit Lions. Between 2000 and 2015, the NFC sent 11 different teams to the Super Bowl, while the AFC has sent only six.
Leading the way for the NFC in terms of conference titles is the Dallas Cowboys with eight. Between 1985 and 1997, only NFC teams won the Super Bowl, but four out of the five winners have hailed from the AFC.

How To Make Money Betting On NFC
The NFC has some perennial futures favorites, including the Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks. Then you have the Atlanta Falcons, Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants to keep your eye on. The Lions and Vikings are vying to be recognized as solid picks but outside of the top three or four teams, it's a wide open conference.
For the foreseeable future, avoid putting your trust in the 49ers, Rams and Bears. These teams have been bad for a while and will continue to struggle. Everyone else in the conference has a chance on any given Sunday so do your homework in the days and weeks leading up to game day.
