  • Super Bowl 2018: Final Predictions, Odds Before AFC, NFC Championship Games

    Per OddsShark, the Jacksonville Jaguars, Minnesota Vikings and Philadelphia Eagles didn't have lofty preseason expectations. Their respective over/under win totals were 6.5, 8.5 and eight, respectively. Ten teams had win totals of nine or more, so the trio of teams lagged behind the leaders of the pack. However, all three teams won their respective divisions and now find themselves in the conference championship round. The New England Patriots, who surpassed their 12.5 over/under win total...

  • NFC Championship Game 2018: Vikings vs. Eagles Comments and Stat Predictions

    Confidence certainly isn't in limited supply as the Minnesota Vikings and Philadelphia Eagles approach the 2018 NFC Championship Game.  The visiting Vikings haven't lost since December 10, and it is almost beginning to look like fate after Stefon Diggs' miracle play downed the New Orleans Saints in the divisional round. An elite defense against a backup quarterback doesn't hurt the confidence, either.  But the hosts aren't fretting with Carson Wentz on the sideline and Nick Foles under center,...

  • Super Bowl 2018: Latest Odds and Predictions for Biggest Stars

    The 2000 New York Giants were one-point underdogs heading into their NFC Championship matchup with the Minnesota Vikings.

However, the Giants silenced the critics by delivering a dominant 41-0 victory to earn a trip to Super Bowl XXXV. Seventeen years later, the Vikings are once again road favorites in the NFC Championship against an NFC East team that finished as the No. 1 seed. This...

  • Vikings vs. Eagles: Top Fantasy Bets, Predictions for 2018 NFC Championship

    Last year's NFC Championship Game contained seven combined touchdown passes from Matt Ryan and Aaron Rodgers. Nick Foles and Case Keenum are unlikely to follow suit Sunday. The Philadelphia Eagles and Minnesota Vikings are each one victory away from making Super Bowl LII behind a quarterback who began 2017 on the bench. Although an overblown storyline among the onlookers who fail to comprehend that football is a team sport, the passers dwindle the matchup's excitement from a fantasy...

    Neither the Minnesota Vikings nor the Philadelphia Eagles finished with winning records last season, but each team showed potential for the future. The Vikings started the year 5-0 before going on a 3-8 tailspin. However, they finished with the sixth-best scoring defense and posted wins against two playoff teams (the New York Giants and Green Bay Packers). The Eagles went just 7-9, but they outscored their opponents by 36 points. Like the Vikings, they also beat a few playoff teams, including...
