The National Football Conference, or NFC, is one of two conferences in the National Football League (NFL), and home to some of the most popular, and successful, football teams in the league. Consisting of 16 teams, the NFC’s teams are more evenly matched than their AFC counterpart, making for an exciting season where literally any of the teams can claim a victory. Since the 2002 realignment, the Dallas Cowboys lead the NFC in terms of most conference titles, having won eight, while the current title holder is the Carolina Panthers.
As an example of how closely matched the NFC is, the only NFC team to have not reached a Super Bowl is the Detroit Lions, while between 2000 and 2015, the NFC sent 11 different teams to the Super Bowl compared to the AFC’s six.
The NFC is split into four divsions: North, East, South, and West, with four teams in each division. This gives you plenty of opportunity to bet on football and boost your betting bankroll.
Preseason favorites for the NFC Conference title is Seattle Seahawks and Carolina Panthers who are both at +400, with Green Bay Packers (+500), Arizona Cardinals (+700), and the Minnesota Vikings (+900) next in line.
