- The Green Bay Packers have +140 odds to win the NFC.
- The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are the +250 second options.
- The Los Angeles Rams (+330) and San Francisco 49ers (+450) have the longest odds.
GREEN BAY, Wis. - Bettors can secure a profit by simply betting on every team aside from the Green Bay Packers to win the NFC.
Betting Against The Packers
While the Packers did earn the first-round BYE in the playoffs as they were the No. 1 overall seed, they are no guarantee to make it to the Super Bowl. NFL betting sites are allowing bettors to get a profit off of the Packers falling short of the Super Bowl.
2022 NFC Championship Odds
- Green Bay Packers +140
- Tampa Bay Buccaneers +250
- Los Angeles Rams +330
- San Francisco 49ers +450
If bettors put one unit on each of the other three teams, a positive return is guaranteed if the Packers lose. If the Tampa Bay Buccaneers win it would bring a +0.50 unit return. If The Los Angeles Rams win it would bring a +1.30 unit return. Finally, if the San Francisco 49ers win the conference it would bring a +2.50 unit return.
Is It A Good Bet To Make?
Considering they essentially have plus-money odds to not win the NFC as well as having +140 odds to win the NFC, it seems to have value to bet against them. However, history shows that No. 1 seeds usually see a lot of success.
Since 2002, when the league expanded to 32 teams and went to an eight-division system 20 of the 38 No. 1 seeds have reached the Super Bowl. Plus, at least one of the No. 1 seeds have won their conference in each of the last eight years and five of those years it was both No. 1 seeds meeting one another in the Super Bowl.
Since bettors can get a positive return either betting on or against Green Bay, it ultimately comes down to the individual’s personal belief on the team and whether they can reach the Super Bowl or not.
Those betting on the NFL should pick a side as it’s not often plus-value is offered on both sides.
