NFC Title Game Spread Holds Firm
The point spread for Sunday's NFC Championship Game between the Minnesota Vikings and Philadelphia Eagles is holding steady at a key number.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Vikings are a 3-point road favorite to beat the Eagles, who opened as a 3.5-point home underdog. The spread has stayed at 3 for most of the week as oddsmakers refuse to move off the key number of a field goal.
As of early Sunday morning, public bettors remain on Minnesota. Roughly 55% of the betting tickets wagered on this game online are on the Vikings to cover the spread and 58% of the money is also on Minnesota.
As for the total, the number hit the board at 38 but was bet up to 39 a few days ago. That's where it currently sits as of this writing. The betting tickets on the over/under are split down the middle, with 50% of the tickets on the over and 50% of the tickets on the under. That said, 62% of the money is currently on the over.
The under is a perfect 4-0 in the last four meetings between these two teams when the game is played in Philadelphia and is 5-2 in the last seven meetings overall. The Vikings, meanwhile, are 2-6 against the spread in their last eight games against the Eagles and just 1-4 against the number in their last five trips to Philadelphia.
