Of the eight divisions in the NFL, there are not many where all of the teams have taken their turns dominating the group, and where each outfit has been to a recent Super Bowl, but those are the facts of life in the case of the NFC South. Since 2003, every team in the NFC South has played in a Super Bowl game, and two of those teams have come away winners. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers crushed the Oakland Raiders 48-21 in Super Bowl XXXVII, while the New Orleans Saints were 31-17 victors overe the Indianapolis Colts in Super Bowl XLIV.
In more recent history, the Carolina Panthers played in Super Bowl 50, while the Atlanta Falcons represented the NFC in Super Bowl LI.

How To Make Money Betting On NFC South
In order to wager successfully on teams housed in the NFC South, it's important to know all you can about those teams. For instance, the Atlanta Falcons operate an explosive, high-tempo offense that can run up points in a hurry, so the Falcons are always a solid over bet on the total.
The New Orleans Saints are another team that can put up points, but they are also a team for which stopping the other team from scoring is a real challenge, so again, playing the over on the total wager on a regular basis should prove rewarding.
The Carolina Panthers were also once a team capable of lighting up the scoreboard but injuries have slowed the elusiveness of quarterback Cam Newton and that has impacted the team's ability to score points. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are the team least likely to be scoring lots of points, but the Bucs also suit up the best defense in the division, so your should anticipate low-scoring affairs when the Bucs are involved.
