Super Bowl odds would also find National Football Conference sleepers with such Super Bowl betting contenders as the Cowboys, Eagles, and Giants. The New Orleans Saints shot out of the gate with 9 consecutive straight up wins to become a NFC favorite with the Super Bowl odds.
The explosive Saints were the highest scoring team in the NFC but had a questionable defense that might be their Super Bowl betting downfall. New Orleans ranked 17th in the NFL for points allowed and there have been scant Super Bowl gambling winners with such a leaky stop unit.
The Minnesota Vikings are another NFC favorite with the Super Bowl odds as they won 8 out of their first 9 games straight up with Brett Favre looking more like 26 years of age than the 40 he actually is.
Favre would be a top shelf quarterback with the Super Bowl odds as he led all NFL signal callers in passing efficiency in mid November and has a Super Bowl ring from his days at Green Bay. The Vikings would bring plenty of fire power to the Super Bowl odds as they ranked 2nd in scoring but 13th in points allowed.
The Dallas Cowboys are more of a long shot with the Super Bowl odds than the public may think. Dallas led a weak NFC East but was erratic in the process. Dallas would be a balanced Super Bowl betting commodity as they ranked 10th in scoring and 8th in points allowed.
Even more of an erratic Super Bowl gambling prop would be the Philadelphia Eagles, who were 5-4 to start the season. The Eagles were an early NFC favorite to make the Super Bowl odds and had an offense that was in the top 5 for scoring.
The Eagles ranked 14th in points allowed, however, and that is what may keep them from making the Super Bowl odds. The one wild card that could bring exceptional value to the Super Bowl odds would be the New York Giants, who won the world title just two seasons ago.
The Giants looked like the Super Bowl odds favorite to represent the NFC after winning their first 5 games. But after losing their next 4 games that followed they became the biggest question mark in the NFL.
