Minnesota Vikings NFC Championship Game Betting Odds
The Vikings needed a little luck at the end of their game against the New Orleans Saints to advance to the NFC Championship game. This time around, they will try not to leave anything to chance as they go up against the team that finished the season with the best record in the NFC.
Case Keenum, who did a great job against the Saints, will need to be even better this time around and also avoid turning the ball over.
The Vikings will also need some help from their running game, which will take pressure away from Keenum and prevent the Eagles defense from sending a pass rush on all downs.
If the Vikings can defeat the Eagles, they will become the first team to play the Super Bowl in their own stadium.
NFC Championship Game Betting Odds for the Philadelphia Eagles Analysis
The Eagles defeated the Atlanta Falcons in the Divisional Round of the playoffs to advance to the championship game despite not having their starting quarterback.
The Eagles’ defense came up big against the Falcons and kept Matt Ryan in check for most of the game. Now, they’re going to have to do the same thing against Keenum and the Vikings offense.
Backup quarterback Nick Foles also played well for the Eagles, and did a great job protecting the ball. They will need a similar performance from him to defeat the Vikings on Sunday.
The Eagles will also need their offensive line to protect Foles from Minnesota’s front four, who can do a lot of damage if they can get to the quarterback.
NFC Championship Game Betting Picks and Predictions for Road to Super Bowl 2018
