The NFC West is made up of the Seattle Seahawks, the Los Angeles Rams, Arizona Cardinals, and of course the San Francisco 49ers. Seattle and Arizona have done most of the winning in recent years. Most notably Russell Wilson and his Seahawks, who have won 7 of 13 division titles. They also made the playoffs in 9 out of 13 seasons. From a historical point of view, the 49ers are one of the winningest teams in all of North America’s history of professional sports– not just football.
They’ve seen multiple dynasties, with different players. 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 championships.

How To Bet On National Football Conference West
The Seahawks are still young enough to survive the gruelling march to the postseason for a few more years (barring big injuries) while being experienced enough to know how to win big ball games. It’s very hard to bet against them, but the Cardinals do have the weapons to beat anybody.
Nobody is really talking about the Rams as playoff contenders, and they should be. This team is rock solid at home. And have now added first overall pick in QB Jared Goff. A quarterback that young is going to struggle. But, they were already a tremendous home team, and his new blood may generate enough excitement to build something.
Elsewhere the 49ers are still down and out. They’re unlikely to get back to the postseason or break .500 any time soon, but they make for an interesting bet as a spread-buster, or upset in the making. Don’t forget about San Fran, They can beat anyone on their own field.
Always remember, the bigger the spread, the more potential for the favoured team to fall short of it. While some people are intimidated by big spreads, you can really do some damage by picking your move carefully and picking the right matchup. This is particularly true for a team like the Rams, who have big-game potential and can turn a double-digit spread into a nail-biter game that wins you a lot of money, if you went against the spread.
