2020 NFC Championship Betting Odds
Despite their dismal offensive performance in Super Bowl 53, the L.A. Rams have opened as the favorites to repeat as NFC champion in 2020. Who else is in the mix? Here are the betting odds to win next year’s NFC Championship.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetNow.eu, the Rams have 9/2 odds to win the NFC Championship in 2020, making them the favorites to repeat. L.A. was held to just a single field goal in Super Bowl 53, losing to the Patriots, 13-3. That said, they return several key pieces on both sides of the ball, including Todd Gurley (presuming he’s healthy), Jared Goff and Aaron Donald. With Sean McVay at the controls, the Rams should once again be competitive in the conference.
The Saints were victims of shoddy officiating in this past season’s NFC Championship Game but they have the next-best odds behind the Rams to win the conference title next year at 5/1. Drew Brees looked his age late in the season but returns to orchestrate an offense that once again will feature Alvin Kamara and Michael Thomas. A lot of the young players that the Saints have on defense will be entering their third seasons so that unit should continue to play well, too.
Also in the Mix
The Bears should once again have the conference’s best defense and are 8/1 to win the 2020 NFC Championship after losing at home to the Eagles in the Divisional round this past season. Their NFC North rivals the Vikings are also 8/1 to win the NFC title next year, while the Packers and aforementioned Eagles are 10/1, respectively. The Cowboys are also 12/1, followed by the Seahawks at 15/1.
Mid-Range Long Shots
The Falcons have spent the week following the Super Bowl releasing starting cornerback Robert Alford, pass-rusher Brooks Reed and aging but steady kicker Matt Bryant. It’s safe to say that Atlanta will look different next season but oddsmakers don’t like the Falcons’ chances of winning the conference, as Matt Ryan and Co. are 20/1. The Panthers, Giants and 49ers are all 25/1, respectively, followed by the Bucs at 35/1.
The Long Shots
The Redskins are 50/1 to win the NFC Championship next season, followed by the Cardinals and Lions at 60/1, respectively. Washington needs to find a quarterback following the devastating injury to Alex Smith, while Arizona will have a new coach (again) in Kliff Kingsbury and Detroit will enter into Matt Patricia’s second year after struggling in 2018.
