Super Bowl betting had undefeated New Orleans as the favorite with the Super Bowl odds in the NFC but there are plenty of other serious candidates. The Philadelphia Eagles are a top shelf Super Bowl betting commodity as they made the NFC championship game last year and are getting solid production on both sides of the line.
The Dallas Cowboys began December once again facing questions about a possible swoon that will keep them off the Super Bowl odds board. Dallas faded behind Philadelphia in the NFC East Division and lacked consistency or big play options heading into the final stretch towards the NFL Super Bowl odds.
The New York Giants have been a colossal disappointment after being the NFC’s Super Bowl betting favorite entering the year. The Giants got off to an undefeated start but their Super Bowl betting credentials got a tough reality check in October when they were hammered at New Orleans.
They have not been the same Super Bowl betting commodity since. Brett Favre has been the difference for the Minnesota Vikings as they dominated the NFC North Division.
There was plenty of Super Bowl betting skepticism about Favre, who is 40 and missed camp, but the veteran is a perfect Super Bowl betting fit for a team loaded on defense and with a strong running game. Favre’s old team, the Green Bay Packers, have also emerged as a Super Bowl betting contender.
After a humiliating loss at Tampa Bay the Pack went on a 5-game winning streak to take firm control of the NFC Wild Card race. The Arizona Cardinals had the inside track to taking the NFC West Division.
As defending NFC champions with an explosive offense the Cardinals look to be better than last year thanks to a defense that has tightened up considerably. The Chicago Bears were the team many felt could break through as they acquired quarterback Jay Cutler from Denver.
But Chicago has gone bust and Lovie Smith may be fired as head coach at season’s end.
