NFC Gambling Props – NFL Future Odds

NFL Divisional Playoffs – NFC Breakdown

Philadelphia. New York. Carolina. Freaking Arizona. Of those four teams, just one was expected to be here. So the real question before us is whether or not the other three teams are for real. Quite frankly, nobody expected Philadelphia to pull up their sucks and turn their season around, while Arizona’s somewhat miraculous escape from the Wildcard Matchup against Atlanta wasn’t foreseen either.  

This weekend will shakedown exactly who belongs in the NFC Championship game. Everyone is throwing the house, their mortgage, their second born child and their mother in law at the Giants and the Panthers. Is that a fair assumption? Let’s break down the four contenders for the crown in the NFC…BetUS style!

ONE TRICK PONY – Arizona Cardinals (+1500 To Win NFC)

The Cardinals face by the biggest challenge thus far. They answered the call by dominating the Atlanta Falcons early and often in their Wildcard matchup. If you were foolish enough to bet on a rookie quarterback and a weak road rushing attack from the Falcons, then shame on you. Really? You didn’t see “brand new, overachieving quarterback versus grizzled, MVP winning, Superbowl Trophy hoisting, quarterback” as a bit of a mismatch? You’ve got some learning to do, buddy.

Strengths: Aerial Attack. The Cardinals average 292.1 yards through the air and Kurt Warner is so old and gray, that the fire storm of the NFL rushing schemes doesn’t faze him that much these days. With Anquan Boldin and Larry Fitzgerald on the receiving end of Warner’s passes, the Cardinals aerial assault is scary.

Weakness: No rushing game and their defense looks like they enjoy playing so much that they never get off the field. That’s not a good sign when they have to face a team that can rush the ball so well.

Verdict: One trick ponies are led to the slaughter house in the NFL Playoffs. Period.

HOT LIKE FIRE! – Philadelphia Eagles (+350 To Win NFC)

No team out there is scarier when they get hot than the Eagles. They have two versatile and capable tailbacks in Buckhalter and Westbrook, a vindictive and athletic quarterback who has a chip on his shoulder (and a couple in his ankle bones) and a defense that can capitalize on mistakes. The only problem is coming from behind, a specialty that Philadelphia fails at miserably.

Strengths: Momentum. Philly came off a dazzling 44-6 victory over Dallas to enter the playoffs, and survived the determined Vikings to see the light of Divisional weekend. When Philadelphia gets rolling early, they’re virtually unstoppable. But if they go down early, it’s a struggle. The fact that they perservered against a diligent Vikings squad says tons about their current level of resolve.

Weaknessess: For some reason, despite fan petitioning in Philadelphia, the NFL refs still give Andy Reid two challenge flags…

KNOCKING ON THE DOOR – Carolina Panthers (+170 To Win NFC)

The Panthers have answered any doubts this season by winning the NFC South, earning a bye week over Wildcard Weekend and putting up big points when it counted. Those that hopped on this betting bandwagon in the closing months of the season were rewarded soundly. Carolina gave back to their betting investors by beating the spread 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games. At home, they are still 8-2-1 ATS.

Strengths: Resolve. They have two, durable rushers that can punch you in the throat and steal your wife en route to the heezy. They have a quarterback who’s been this close before. Steve Smith punched a teammate in the face and they still rallied. If you’re betting on intangibles, then Carolina’s got the most important one.

Weakness: Jake Delhomme. I don’t trust him. I never have. I never will. It’s nothing about the Bayou or his Tommy John Surgery, or his ridiculously stupid haircut. Actually it is the haircut. The second you start believing in Jake The Fake, he lets you down. I’m not biting. No sir. Not today! Not EVER!!!

DEFENDING THEIR THRONE – New York Giants (+110 To Win NFC)

Doubt them at your own risk, but the Giants are back atop the NFC. Last year they went from Wildcard to Champion. This year they start on top, and have to stay on top. Are they up to the challenge? This year there will be no excuse for them to lose. That’s what happens when you’re the king of the mountain…

Strengths: Coaching. Tom Coughlin turned fumbling Tiki Barber in to a fantasy stud, a rushing champion and a Pro-Bowl ticket puncher. He also cast away Plaxico Burress after he literally shot himself in the foot (er…leg…same difference…the leg bone’s connected to the foot bone) and survived the absence of the 6-foot-4 athletes dangerous red-zone presence. He’s turned the three-headed dragon of Ward-Bradshaw-Jacobs in to an unstoppable force. Oh yeah, and he turned Eli Manning in to a Superbowl Champion. Forgot about that.

Weakness: Arrogance. They’re going to miss Plaxico in the playoffs. I guarantee that. When they need that seven-yard fade pass to hit the flag in the deep corner of the endzone, do you really want to lose your shirt when betting that Mario Manningham’s going to make that catch?
