A lot of people may see the NFC as the property of Tom Brady and the Patriots, but there is so much more going on. Granted, the Pats have done nothing but win, year-after-year for the last decade and a half. But, there is actually a greater diversity in winners in the NFC, compared to the AFC, from a historical perspective. Amazingly, the only NFC team to never play in a Super Bowl game is the Detroit Lions. At the same time, the only NFC team to make back-to-back Super Bowl appearances was the Seahawks (2013 and 2014).
In a 15 year span, the NFC sent 11 different teams to the Super Bowl, whereas the AFC sent 6.

Best NFC Betting Tips
When betting on The NFC, remember, the conference has 16 teams and most of them have been relevant for at least a season or two, in the last decade and a half. Historically speaking, the Cowboys have won the most conference titles, with 8. But the recent years have belonged to the powerhouse New England Patriots. But even they haven’t been a lock to win the Super Bowl.
However, the Pats almost always have a dominating regular season, and almost always make it at least as far as the conference championship game. The rest of the conference turns over talent a lot quicker, so a team that made the playoffs last year can quickly sink into the basement a few years later. So pay close attention to the strategy you employ when betting on NFC teams. Standings, streaks, and the injury report are your best friend.
Going into the season, you can usually tell who’s going to be on top (The Pats) and who’s going to stay in the basement. But the middle class is a lot harder to predict.
If you’re going to bet on the NFC, do your homework and know you can almost always throw away pre-season reports about 3 weeks into the season because everything changes so quickly.
