    Cardinals vs Panthers – NFC Championship BETTING LINE:

    In the reduced juice NFL odds for this NFC championship encounter, as posted at Chinese Bookie , the Panthers are the favorites:

    Carolina Panthers -3 (-110)
    Arizona Cardinals +3 (+100)

    Over 47.5 points -108
    Under 47.5 points -102


    The Panthers are 16-1 straight-up, and the numbers against the spread have worked for people who have backed them, as they have gone 12-5 ATS. After last week’s 31-24 victory over Seattle, in which they scored all of their points in the first half and the Seahawks tallied all theirs in the second, they have now gone 11-5-1 to the “over,” as far as totals are concerned.

    The Cardinals (14-3 straight-up, 9-8 against the NFL pointspread) averaged 30.6 points per game in the regular season. Last week Larry Fitzgerald had 176 yards in receptions last week, including the two big plays in overtime, and has an average of 114 yards in seven games of his post-season career.

    Carson Palmer had career highs in passing yards (4671 yards) and touchdowns (35) and threw two interceptions, as well as three TD’s, against Green Bay. When he is targeting the aforementioned Fitzgerald, he has a 75% accuracy rate. Fitzgerald, however, has averaged only eleven yards a catch.

    Arizona’s offense is #1 in the NFL in yards gained per drive, as well as #2 in points scored per drive. They are also third best in the league in third-down conversion rate (47%). Opposing defenses have held the Cards to three-and-outs just 14.9% of the time, and that is less frequent than anyone else.

    Their defense had 36 sacks, eight less than Carolina’s 44, but they are fifth best in yards allowed per drive.

    Chinese Bookie patrons might be a bit surprised to know that Carolina was the highest scoring team in the league, with an even 500 points. While in the category of yards gained per drive, the Panthers ranked only 12th, they were the very best when it comes to points per drive, and it doesn’t take a genius to understand that they have made those drives count.

    One of the other things that is very important for offensive efficiency is performance in the red zone. And in that regard the Panthers have been stellar. They are #1 in points scored per red zone appearance, and #2 in touchdowns scored. On defense, Carolina has forced the most turnovers in the league – 41, including last week’s game against Seattle. And 26 of those turnovers were interceptions.

    Arizona has scored more second half points on the road than anyone (131), but Carolina has won twelve consecutive home games. So fasten your seat belt.
