Super Bowl gambling in the NFC starts with the New Orleans Saints, who suffered their first straight up loss to Dallas after starting out towards the Super Bowl lines at 13-0. The Saints feature a high octane offense that would be among the most explosive of all Super Bowl gambling contenders.
Quarterback Drew Brees continues to re-set the record books and the Saints have just enough offensive versatility and defense to be a top shelf threat with the Super Bowl lines.
Just when everyone was about to write off the Dallas Cowboys with the NFL Super Bowl odds they pulled off the huge upset at New Orleans to ruin the Saints undefeated Super Bowl gambling dreams. The Dallas defense would have to be considered one of the most underrated in Super Bowl gambling.
The big problem for Dallas is that they lack a true game breaker. The Philadelphia Eagles were a NFC finalist last year and will enter Super Bowl gambling as a well rounded veteran team that can beat you in many different ways. Donovan McNabb will be hungry to prove that he is a legitimate Super Bowl gambling quarterback.
The New York Giants were the preseason Super Bowl gambling favorites of the NFC and suffered a terrible mid-season slump before regaining form late in the year to get back into the race. Any team that has Eli Manning at quarterback is a threat to go all the way.
The Arizona Cardinals surprised everyone in Super Bowl gambling last year with their NFC title and near win on Super Sunday against Pittsburgh. Arizona has tightened up their defense and is a far better team than they were in 2008. This is a team nobody wants to play.
The Green Bay Packers rallied after losing at Tampa Bay to win 5 games in a row before a stunning defeat at Pittsburgh on the last play of the game left them at 9-5 straight up. The Packers boast one of the most explosive offensive teams in the league but their defensive collapse at Pittsburgh leaves many questions and doubts.
Brett Favre has proved his value with the Minnesota Vikings as they had the second best record in the NFC at 11-3. Minnesota has the defense and running game to compliment Favre’s passing and go all the way.
