The Seahawks, not the defending champion Panthers, are favored to win the 2017 NFC Championship next season.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book RealBet.eu, the Seahawks are listed with 4/1 odds, slightly better than the 9/2 odds given to the Panthers. The Packers are also in the mix at 6/1, while the Cardinals are 13/2 after advancing to the NFC title game this past season (and subsequently getting blown out in Carolina).

Some of the mid-range long shots including the Cowboys and Vikings at 10/1, respectively, while the Bears are 20/1. The Falcons, Giants, Lions, Redskins and Saints are all in that next group at 25/1, respectively, while the Bucs, Eagles and Rams are all 30/1, respectively. The 49ers have the longest odds at 40/1.

This might sound strange, but the Cowboys might offer the best value at 10/1. Dallas' defense played well last season but the entire team was hamstrung by Tony Romo's injury. If Romo and Dez Bryant can stay healthy throughout an entire season, it's not far-fetched to think that the Cowboys could make a serious run in 2016-17.
