Super Bowl Odds - NFC Down to Top 2

Super Bowl odds had the New Orleans Saints and Minnesota Vikings as the top two Super Bowl betting seeds and favorites to take the NFC title.

Super Bowl odds will favor the host Saints in their matchup with the Vikings in the NFC championship game as the winner will be the NFC Super Bowl betting representative.  Both the Saints and Vikings bring considerable assets to the Super Bowl odds board. Both Super Bowl betting contenders start with prolific passing attacks led by elite quarterbacks that are top shelf Super Bowl gambling assets.

The Minnesota Vikings have veteran Brett Favre over center. Favre is no stranger to the Super Bowl odds as he led the Green Bay Packers to the 1996 title.  Favre enters action with the Super Bowl odds coming off his best season ever as he had a quarterback rating of 107.0 with a 68.3 completion percentage and 4202 yards passing.

The 40-year old legend had a 33-7 touchdown to interception ratio.  A big reason Minnesota is in contention with the Super Bowl odds is that Favre has cut down on his reckless style from the past.  The Saints enter action with the Super Bowl odds as the highest scoring team in the NFL.

Quarterback Drew Brees is a top shelf asset with the Super Bowl odds as he finished with a quarterback rating of 109.6 based on a completion percentage of 70.6% and 4388 yards.  Brees had a 34/11 touchdown to interception ratio.  What may prove to be the difference between these two teams with the Super Bowl odds is defense.

The Vikings have the clear advantage as they ranked 6th in the NFL for yards allowed and 10th for points allowed.  New Orleans, on the other hand, ranked an alarming 24th in yards allowed and 20th in points allowed.  These two teams did not meet in the regular season.

Favre was signed by the Vikings during training camp for this game.  He was considered the final piece of the puzzle for the Vikings.  He now has a chance to prove that theory correct and lead Minnesota to their first Super Bowl since 1977.  The Saints are yet to take the field on Super Sunday in their history.
