NFC Championship Betting
Is the public riding the Carolina Panthers in today’s NFC Championship against the Arizona Cardinals, or do bettors like the road team to cover?
According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, Carolina is favored at home, as the Panthers are getting odds of -3 points against the Cardinals. The over/under total has been set at 47 points. These two meet tonight at 6:40PM ET on FOX.
When it comes to the public betting for tonight’s game, the wagers are siding with the Panthers. Carolina is currently getting 69 percent of the bets as a 3-point home favorite against the Cardinals tonight.
The Panthers aren’t just 16-1, but they are also 12-5 against the spread this season, an impressive number for certain. Carolina covered the spread in last week’s playoff game against a very solid Seahawks team. Arizona is just 9-8 against the spread this season, but they are 6-2 ATS on the road. Arizona seems to rise to the occasion on the road, so perhaps Arizona is the smart play as the game nears.
