NFC South NFL Betting

NFC South is one part of the four divisions that make up the National Football Conference (NFC). As with the other divisions, the NFC South is comprised of four teams – Atlanta Falcons, Carolina Panthers, New Orleans Saints and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The South division of the NFC is so much newer than the other three NFC divisions which all established around the late sixties and early 1970s. The NFC South was founded in 2002. Despite its “youth”, NFC South is the only division which has managed to have each of its teams make it to the NFC Championship game and the Superbowl.

Since the division’s inception in 2002 up to 2018, 17 seasons in total, Carolina Panthers and New Orleans Saints have won the season five times each.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Atlanta Falcons have won three and four seasons respectively. Only two teams in NFC South have bagged the NFC Championships. The Carolina Panthers have managed to win the NFC Championship twice while the Atlanta Falcons have only won it once. , Both New Orleans Saints and Tampa Bay Buccaneers have won the Superbowl once.

NFC South Wild Cards

The wild card games are likely some of the most exciting games to watch and bet on. The wild card playoffs are games for teams that have performed well throughout the season but have not managed to qualify for a Championship game. Betting on Wild Cards to win may be more rewarding because these teams have performed well throughout the season and have increased fervour to prove they have earned their place in the championships.

NFC South Betting Odds

As a US gambler looking to bet on NFC South teams, it is vital to keep tabs on the divisions stats in order to make sensible bets. For instance, knowing that the Panthers and Saints have won a higher number of seasons in total than Tampa Bay and Atlanta Falcons would influence a Season Win Totals bet.  This information may also inform your decision on a money line bet between the higher performing teams and lower performing teams.

What needs to be noted though is the fact that the difference between the best performing teams and “under” performing teams in the NFC South is very marginal. The NFC South hosts quality teams so nothing is set in stone. It is important to look at each game individually, research on statistics for each team so as to make the best bets. For example, in 2014 the NFC South Championships were won by a team with a losing record. In a game such as that one, a halftime line bet would have allowed gamblers to gauge the game’s pace and likely make a smarter bet for the second half of the game.
