NFL Conference betting lines have been up for most of the week and seemed to have settled into fairly consistent odds across the industry. It has been a riveting football playoffs and so I thought I would take a look at some NFL Conference betting odds with some tips on winning big. Mixed results from last week have impacted my playoffs win loss record, but on the whole we are still sitting healthy. Let’s take a look at the NFC Conference first and we will then handicap the AFC Conference Championship game tomorrow.
NFL Conference Betting – Green Bay Packers vs. Atlanta Falcons
The NFC Conference Championship game sees the Green Bay Packers travel to Georgia to take on the Atlanta Falcons. The Atlanta Falcons clinched the NFC South with an 11-5 record, while the Green Bay Packers won the NFC North with a 10-6 record. The path was a little more consistent to the top for Atlanta, while the Packers almost collapsed mid season before getting hot. When it comes to NFL Conference betting, the Falcons are -4.5 favorites on the pointspread and are -195 faves on the moneyline. The Pack are +165 dogs on the money line and the O/U stands at 61.5.
NFC Conference Odds – Green Bay Packers
It has been a rollercoaster of a season for the Pack as they almost feel apart halfway through the 2017 NFL campaign. Aaron Rodgers and his receiving corps of Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb struggled with routes and communication. Coach Mike McCarthy seemed stumped what to do to turn things around particularly with the running game. Throw in some key injuries and it looked like the season might be over.
However, the Pack turned it around and with Rodgers back in elite level form Green Bay is suddenly looking healthy and focused. Last weekend’s clutch win over the Dallas Cowboys probably clinched Aaron Rodgers the HOF and he is on fire now. The NFL’s top receiver in the form of Jordy Nelson will almost certainly not play Sunday which is a blow to Green Bay. However, they beat a very tough Cowboys team in Texas without Nelson so may be able to pull off another upset down south.
NFC Winning Picks – Atlanta Falcons
The Atlanta Falcons on the other hand seem relatively healthy in all the key positions and have the advantage of playing at home. The Falcons were a bit of a sleeper team and put together a good record against middle of the road teams. Although they struggled a bit to close, the Falcons are a solid team with a high level air attack. Given the nature of Green Bay’s offense, it is no wonder that the Total for this game sits at a whopping 61.5.
Matt Ryan started with the Falcons in 2007 and is their franchise player. At times I believe he has flirted with an “elite QB” designation, but this year there is no question as he was best in the league with a 117.1 QB rating. To put it in perspective, Tom Brady is in second place with a QB rating of 112.2. So we know Ryan has the goods- but does he have the team? The Falcons may not have a ton of other super stars outside of phenom wide receiver Julio Jones, but they do seem to possess a team with depth and cohesiveness.
NFC Conference Championship Winner – Atlanta Falcons
I think the Falcons will win at home in a hotly contested game. The Pack are going to be tough to beat but the Falcons seem to be on a roll particularly with the way they handled the Seattle Seahawks. Make no mistake they need to have a big day, and I am worried about big stage jitters, but this feels like an Atlanta Falcons New England Patriots Super Bowl to me. Take the Falcons on the -195 moneyline and check out the game time proposition bets.
