The NFC south is one of the most enigmatic divisions in all of sports. It’s wildly unpredictable from year to year. Of course, all divisions are tough to predict, but this one is really crazy. Since the 2002 realignment, it is the only division to have each of its teams make a conference championship game appearance. Look at The Carolina Panthers, for example, the South’s current team to beat. After winning the division with a sub-.500 record one year, then ran away with it the following year and nearly went undefeated.
It has a ton of deep talent right across the board, with teams like the Atlanta Falcons, the Carolina Panthers, the New Orleans Saints, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Each of these teams has a quality franchise player in the likes of Matt Ryan, Cam Newton, Drew Brees, and Jameis Winston.

How To Bet On National Football Conference South
The Panthers have a slightly healthier version of a team that nearly went undefeated last season. And they’ll be playing angry because they lost the big game last year. This means Cam Newton and crew are still the team to beat in the NFC South, and it’s going to be very hard to dethrone them. That being said...
The Falcons, Saints and Buccaneers were all active and productive during the free agency season. The Bucs had a rough finish to the regular season after dropping 4 straight games, after being 6-6 at one point, and shouting distance from the playoffs. This year, they’ve added a few new weapons, and most importantly, re-upped Doug Martin’s contract.
With the Panthers heavily favored in most interdivisional matchups, you’ve got the potential to find an upset here. Each team in the South has a franchise-quality arm in their quarterback. This makes every team a big-game threat. They’re also solid picks to bet on upsets against higher ranked teams, like the Panthers. Even the worst teams in the NFL will win a handful of games each year.
