NFL Postseason: NFC 2020-21 odds update and analysis

NFL Playoff tips for the AFC division 2020-21

Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees, and Tom Brady have an average age of over 40 years old. Yet these three all-time greats are still under center for the NFC’s top three Super Bowl contenders. Here’s a look at the NFL betting odds for these three veteran quarterbacks’ teams and the other for teams in the NFC playoff picture.

Green Bay Packers (Super Bowl +450 / NFC +160)

(Record: 13-3 SU, 10-6 ATS / WC Opponent: BYE)

Aaron Rodgers has been sensational in 2020, leading the NFL in completion percentage (70.7%), quarterback rating (121.5), and touchdown passes (48) all while throwing only five interceptions. With Rodgers playing at such an elite level and the defense allowing only 18.5 points per game over Green Bay’s 6-0 SU and 4-2 ATS run to end the regular season, the Packers will come out of their bye as a serious threat to win Super Bowl LV. The Packers are at +160 to win the NFC with leading betting sites.

New Orleans Saints (Super Bowl +800 / NFC +275)

(Record: 12-4 SU, 9-6-1 ATS / WC Opponent: vs. Chicago)

While usually known for their high-powered offense, the Saints were actually led by their defense this season which ranked fourth best in the NFL in total yards allowed per game (310.9) and fifth best in points per game allowed (21.1). Drew Brees and Michael Thomas haven’t been themselves this season; if they can find their groove in the postseason and Alvin Kamara doesn’t have any issues returning from his bout with the coronavirus, the Saints are capable of beating anyone.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (Super Bowl +900 / NFC +400)

(Record: 11-5 SU, 9-7 ATS / WC Opponent: at Washington)

The Buccaneers enter the postseason with some momentum on the heels of a 4-0 SU and 3-1 ATS run in which they averaged 37 points per game on offense. Value hunters will have to strongly consider Tampa Bay at these current future odds. This team has a top 10 defense, an elite wide receiving core, the best post season quarterback of all-time in Tom Brady, and a favorable first-round matchup against the Washington Football Team.

Seattle Seahawks (Super Bowl +1400 / NFC +600)

(Record: 12-4 SU, 8-8 ATS / WC Opponent: vs. Los Angeles)

Seattle’s defense got torched for 30.4 points per game through the team’s first eight games. But over the second half of their season, the Seahawks allowed only 16 points per game, helping lead Seattle to a 6-1 SU record over its last seven games. With one of the league’s best quarterbacks at the helm in Russell Wilson and the defense playing well, the Seahawks are another interesting dark horse contender in the NFC.

Los Angeles Rams (Super Bowl +2500 / NFC +1200)

(Record: 10-6 SU, 9-7 ATS / WC Opponent: at Seattle)

Los Angeles had the best defense in the league this season by a comfortable margin allowing only 281.9 total yards and 18.5 points per game. The Rams’ elite defense will make them a tough out and a potential landmine to any team that faces them, but a sub-par offense and suspect quarterback play from Jared Goff makes it difficult to get excited about their chances of making a deep run.

Chicago Bears (Super Bowl +8000 / NFC +4000)

(Record: 8-8 SU, 8-8 ATS / WC Opponent: at New Orleans)

Chicago ranked 22nd in the NFL in scoring this season with 23.3 points per game and 14th in scoring defense allowing 23.1 points per game. The Bears are every bit as average as their 8-8 record indicates and are only in the playoffs due to the format expanding to seven teams. It’s hard to imagine them making much of a splash.

Washington Football Team (Super Bowl +8000 / NFC +4000)

(Record: 7-9 SU, 8-7-1 ATS / WC Opponent: vs. Tampa Bay)

Washington found its way into the postseason with a losing record thanks to the abysmal play of the NFC East. All but one of the team’s seven wins came from bottom-feeders too in the Philadelphia Eagles, Dallas Cowboys, Cincinnati Bengals, and the injury-hampered San Francisco 49ers. Washington’s strong defense is offset by a dismal offense that will have a very difficult time keeping up with the high-powered Buccaneers this weekend.
