The NFC West is home to the Arizona Cardinals, the Los Angeles Rams, the San Francisco 49ers, and the Seattle Seahawks. The Seahawks and Cardinals are currently the best teams in the NFC West. But, from a historical perspective, the 49ers certainly are one of the most storied franchises in all of North America’s history of professional sports. They have been the NFC West division champions a remarkable 19 times, as well as conference champions 6 times, and won at the big dance 5 times with 5 Super Bowl titles.
More recently, after years and years out of the public eye, the Seattle Seahawks have garnered national attention. They are also the first, and to date only, post-merger expansion team in NFL history to advance to play in consecutive Super Bowls. QB Russell Wilson led the Hawks to a Super Bowl win against Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos, then lost the following year to Tom Brady and his New England Patriots.

Best NFC West Betting Tips
In terms of betting, the most popular action is on the Seahawks and the Cardinals. Since moving into the NFC West division, the Hawks have had great success, having won 7 of 13 division titles, and making the playoffs in 9 out of 13 seasons. Elsewhere, the Cardinals are stacked and could easily win the division again or make it all the way to the super bowl.
The other teams are a bit more enigmatic. Both the Rams and the 49ers have talent on their roster and have beaten good teams in recent seasons, but both seem to struggle to pull it together and have a successful campaign of their own.
These two teams are both great to bet on. They each present a very real upset risk when playing a higher ranked team, especially when playing on their home field.
Do your research and place your bets accordingly. Check the recent stats, trends, standings and injury reports to pick your spot. Even the worst team in any division is likely to win a few games every year. It’s up to you to make an educated bet to figure out when, and against who.
Elsewhere, smart money remains on the Hawks and the Cards to play well, win a lot of games, and put up a lot of points on the board. Either team could make a very deep playoff run. So you can have a lot of success if you pay close attention to the line each weekend, and make the smart bets.
