The NFL is the king of sports betting, garnering more money and wagers than any other sport in the United States. As such, that makes the lines for the NFL that much more sharp from sportsbooks, and it can be tougher for you to win. One of the most popular ways to bet the NFL is on conference winner future bets.

BetMGM Betting Insights: Conference Winners
AFC - Dolphins +1100: I think the Dolphins are extremely live to be one of the biggest surprises of the 2023 season. We saw what that offense is capable of with a healthy Tua Tagovailoa, and now with an improved defense that includes Jalen Ramsay, I think they are being overlooked. -Matt Horner
NFC - Cowboys +600: The NFC is absolutely terrible, and I think Dallas is another team that people are actually starting to sleep on after last year's failure. This team has all the talent to win this conference, and now they don't have Ezekiel Elliott to hold them back. -Matt Horner
We have seen a lot of great teams over the years win their conferences and make an appearance in the Super Bowl. Unfortunately, there can only be one winner, but winning your conference is the next best thing.
Last season, the Chiefs won the AFC with a dramatic victory over the Bengals to send Patrick Mahomes to yet another Super Bowl. He would take on Jalen Hurts and the Eagles, who won the NFC after they blew out the 49ers in the NFC Championship when San Francisco lost all their QBs to injury. While maybe it wasn't the most exciting championship games, they are all memorable in their own way. I remember when my Chicago Bears won the NFC in 2006 against Drew Brees and the Saints. We blew them out, which I'm sure wasn't very memorable for Saints fans, but for a Bears fan it meant everything.
