Betting On NFC South Online

If you’re looking for parity, the NFC South is the division. Each of the four teams — the Atlanta Falcons, Carolina Panthers, New Orleans Saints and Tampa Bay Buccaneers — has won the division title at least three times since realignment in 2002. And, for the first eight years of the division’s existence, no team earned a spot in the playoffs in back-to-back seasons. The South is the only NFC division not to have any teams that predate the 1960 launch of the American Football League. [+]

Prior to the 2002 season, the Bucs belonged to the AFC West (1976) and NFC Central (1977-2001), while the other three teams were part of the NFC West.

The NFC South is the only division where each team has earned a spot in the conference final as well as a Super Bowl appearance: Tampa Bay (2002), Atlanta (2004, 2012, 2016), Carolina (2003, 2005, 2015) and New Orleans (2006, 2009).

Tampa Bay trounced Oakland to win Super Bowl 37 and New Orleans beat Indianapolis to capture Super Bowl 44. Carolina lost to New England in Super Bowl 38 and Denver in Super Bowl 50. Atlanta lost to New England in Super Bowl 51, as they blew the biggest lead in the big game’s history when they led by 25 points in the third quarter only to lose in overtime.

NFC South Online Betting Tips

The Falcons rolled into the Super Bowl, the Buccaneers orchestrated their first winning season since 2010, the 7-9 Saints scored more points than they allowed, and the Panthers went from Super Bowl finalists to last place in the division. What a wild 2016 in the NFC South.

Atlanta was 5-1 in its division and 9-3 in conference play last year. The team scored 540 points in the regular season — seventh most in league history — and Matt Ryan was named NFL MVP for the first time. This offensive juggernaut could not be stopped. The problem, though, was magnified in the second half of the Super Bowl when New England overcame a 25-point deficit. If defense wins championships, the Falcons still have a lot of work to do.

The Bucs may now have the best one-two receiver combination in the league with Mike Evans and DeSean Jackson. That should only help their young QB in Jameis Winston, who threw 18 interceptions last season. In his rookie season in 2014, Tampa was 2-14. Last season they were 9-7 and 5-3 on the road. The Bucs continue to improve on both sides of the ball. Their playoff hopes will come down to their last few games of the season when they meet all three division rivals.

The Saints’ offense was already explosive. Now they add star running back Adrian Peterson. The Saints, 7-9 last season, have not made the playoffs for three straight years. Drew Brees, still among the elite QBs in the game at 38 years old, must feel a sense of urgency. As quickly as New Orleans could score points last year, they also gave them up just as easily. Did management do enough to patch up a porous defense? Their playoff hopes depend on it.

From the Super Bowl to the division basement. From 15-1 to 6-10. As Cam Newton goes, so go the Panthers. Their MVP quarterback had one of his worst seasons in six years in Carolina. He was banged up for most of the season, and the team played like it. The Panthers used the draft to add some offensive weapons and take some pressure off Newton. It’s a good strategy, because the team needs their QB healthy and at his best to make any run at all.
