Defending NFC West Champs are top chalk to repeat
So close – yet so far! That simple phrase must still be on the minds of the San Francisco 49ers as the Niners came within one play of winning Super Bowl XLVII back in February. Bet365 bookmakers seem kind of torn on whether the 49ers can repeat as NFC West Champions as they have posted them as slim favorites over the Seattle Seahwaks. The 49ers are listed with a +100 price to win the divison while the Seahawks are right behind them with +110 odds.
St. Louis Rams and Arizona Cardinals: Huge pups to capture the NFC West
With the 49ers and Seahawks posted in a virtual tie to win the Wild West, the St. Louis Rams and Arizona Cardinals are huge pups to capture the NFC West title. St. Louis (+800) is hoping QB Sam Bradford can move closer to elite QB status as they look to improve on their 7-8-1 NFL 2012 record – the tie was against the Niners! After posting a 5-11 mark last year, things are still fairly bleak in the desert as Arizona is tagged with a +2800 price to win the NFC West.
