NFC West Betting

This division was the best in the NFL last year. Teams from the NFC West combined to go 38-25-1, and a Week 17 game between Seattle and San Francisco determined the No. 1 seed in the NFC. The 49ers won that game and were dominant in the playoffs until the fourth quarter of Super Bowl LIV. Kyle Shanahan’s demons came back to haunt him as one of his teams blew a double-digit lead in the final 15 minutes of the Super Bowl for the second time in four years, and the 49ers are out to make amends as the slight odds-on favorites this season.

San Francisco’s defensive line will strike fear into the hearts of quarterbacks once more in 2020. The 49ers drafted Javon Kinlaw after trading away DeForest Buckner, and they still have Nick Bosa, Arik Armstead, and Solomon Thomas. The ground game proved it can wear down opponents in the playoffs with fullback Kyle Juszczyk leading the way, and George Kittle is one of the most dangerous tight ends in the NFL. Adding Trent Williams to this offensive line should make that unit even better too.

The Seahawks were the most fortunate team in the NFL last season. They went 11-5 despite posting a +7 point differential, and some regression is expected this year. Seattle’s once dominant defense is a shell of what it used to be, and Russell Wilson has had to carry this franchise on his back. D.K. Metcalf is exciting though, and Chris Carson came on strong before being injured last year.

There were major changes with the Rams this offseason. Brandin Cooks and Todd Gurley have departed the City of Angels, and the defense has been largely revamped too. They still have the most dominant defender in the league in Aaron Donald, and Jalen Ramsey is arguably the best cornerback in the NFL. Jared Goff will have to prove he is an elite quarterback for this team to contend again though.

Arizona is primed to take another step forward this year. Kyler Murray turned heads as a rookie, and Deandre Hopkins gives him an elite receiver to use in the passing game. Isaiah Simmons is an incredibly exciting young defender because of his versatility, and they are no longer a pushover.

This division was originally called the NFL Coastal, but it became the NFC West after the merger and remained static with the Rams, Falcons, Saints and Niners as the four members. That was a killer for travel as these teams played in three different time zones, and over 2,200 miles separated San Francisco from Atlanta and New Orleans.

Seattle entered the league in 1976 and spent its first season in the NFC West before switching conferences and moving to the AFC West. In 1995, the Carolina Panthers were an expansion team that joined this division, and their location further ensconced this division as the island of misfit toys. In 2002, the teams in this division changed dramatically and finally made geographic sense when Atlanta, New Orleans, and Carolina joined the NFC South and Seattle and Arizona were brough into the NFC West.

There have been some dynasties in this division over the years. The Los Angeles Rams won a then-NFL record seven straight division titles from 1973 to 1979 and appeared in five NFC Championship Games during that stretch. The Rams whiffed on their first four attempts to reach the Super Bowl, but the fifth time was a charm, and they made it to the biggest stage despite reaching the playoffs with a 9-7 record.

San Francisco was the greatest dynasty this division has ever seen. The Niners won the first three division titles after the merger, but they rose to mega stardom in the 1980s under Bill Walsh and Joe Montana. San Francisco won this division 13 times between 1981 and 1997 with all five of the franchise’s Super Bowl victories coming during that stretch. The Saints and Falcons were there to supply competition, but they didn’t do a very good job. The two teams combined to win just five division titles during their generation in the NFC West.

The NFC West has been owned by the California teams with the Rams and Niners combining for 35 of the division titles since the NFL Coastal Division was adopted before the merger.

The Niners’ run of success in the 1980s lifted them to the most titles in division history with 20. The Rams ended a long title drought in 2017 by capturing their first as a Southern California-based team since 1985 after spending a little over two decades in St. Louis, earning the franchise’s lone Super Bowl title there.
