- See how our NFL experts are wagering on the NFC Championship Game as the Los Angeles Rams and New Orleans Saints duel it out with our live betting tracker.
Championship Sunday is here. And what better way to celebrate this showcase of football than some live betting?
There’s plenty of reasons to get in on the live action, especially in games of this caliber. But we’ll let Collin Wilson take it from here: “In this day in age, it’s important to have a live betting account. Some offshore sites offer live betting during commercials, while others have lines available throughout each play.
“Limits will range anywhere from a couple of dimes to $500, but when using a combination of multiple books, live betting can be a great way to get key numbers in high profile games.”
So, let’s get this party started.
Below is a live tracker of what our NFL experts are betting as the Los Angeles Rams and New Orleans Saints duel it out in the Superdome. All times listed are MST.
Final Score: Rams 26, Saints 23
Stuckey [4:25 PM]: Game was destined to land on the king 3
Scott T. Miller [4:09 PM]: Rams +120, Saints -160
Collin Wilson [4:10 PM]: Losing Under 56 may go into the hall of fame
Evan Abrams [4:10 PM]: Speaking of storylines…2009 vs 2018 getting weird
Scott T. Miller [4:10 PM]: Lost in my anger: Over 45.5
Stuckey [4:12 PM]: Why I wanted Over 48.5 live
Rams Driving, Down 20-17
Scott T. Miller [3:35 PM]: Rams score a TD here, what’s the Saints live line gonna be?
Collin Wilson [3:36 PM]: Wouldn’t be surprised if it’s Saints -140
Collin Wilson [3:41 PM]: -130 right now
Connor Nolte [3:42 PM]: +120 is prime
Rams Driving, Down 20-17
Collin Wilson [3:23 PM]: Who is ready to hammer the Saints when the Rams take the lead?
PJ Walsh [3:25 PM]: Definitely.
Chad Millman [3:25 PM]: I just bet saints -2.5, all in on Who Dat!!!!
John Ewing [2:53 PM]: Anyone have Kamara over 100 receiving yards?
Chad Millman [2:55 PM]: BlackJack has Kamara for more than 100 yards combined
BlackJack Fletcher [2:55 PM]: Sure do
John Ewing [2:55 PM]: Me too. Didn’t think it would come all by receptions
Stuckey [3:05 PM]: Basically just waiting for Rams double digits again and that’s it
Chad Millman [3:08 PM]: Remember when it was +11.5? Those were good times.
Rams Punt, Still Trail 13-3
PJ Walsh [2:14 PM]: You guys buying back the over?
Collin Wilson [2:15 PM]: I am, half shot on 48.5 if I can get it, 44.5 hammered if we get a bunch of running here
PJ Walsh [2:16 PM]: 46.5 is a good spot, 47 a key number in O/U betting
PJ Walsh [2:18 PM]: Man, anything Rams live that’s decent right now could be a great bet. Get the ball back with little time left, then after half. Almost need Saints to get this third down, then hit Rams
Collin Wilson [2:18 PM]: Over 48.5 half unit, hitting now
Connor Nolte [2:19 PM]: 47.5 extra. 46.5 -110
PJ Walsh [2:19 PM]: Now hit it over Collin
Collin Wilson [2:19 PM]: Yep. 45.5, got it
Chad Millman [2:21 PM]: Just hit over 45.5 (-125)
Collin Wilson [2:22 PM]: Sit back and hopefully Rams put together some points for a Total middle and a Saints number better than -3
Rams’ Driving, Down 13-3
PJ Walsh [2:06 PM]: Does 52.5 seem high to anyone else?
Collin Wilson [2:07 PM]: 1H total live is 23.5, so yeah too high
PJ Walsh [2:08 PM]: Just played under 52.5 live. Need a long drive here ending in a field goal
Connor Nolte [2:10 PM]: Crowd noise huge for the under
Rams Cut Saints’ Lead to 13-3
Scott T. Miller [1:59 PM]: I have Rams +10.5 (-160)
Collin Wilson [2:00 PM]: This could be the Saints last possession for quite awhile
Stuckey [2:01 PM]: Will come back on Rams live to open a new position if Saints score here
Scott T. Miller [2:01 PM]: What number you looking for?
PJ Walsh [2:02 PM]: I like 10.5, just don’t want to lay that vig
Stuckey [2:02 PM]: Flat 10.5 or better
PJ Walsh [2:03 PM]: Still hoping the Saints can put together a good drive and score, then will sell them with the Rams getting it at halftime. I’ll take McVay to gameplan a great drive out of the half.
John Ewing [2:04 PM]: If saints score here I’ll take a little LA money, as Colin said this could be the last time NO touches the ball for a while
Saints Take 13-0 Lead
PJ Walsh [1:39 PM]: Looking for Rams live now
Scott T. Miller [1:39 PM]: Yup. Nice middle if you have Saints -3 too. I see +11.5
PJ Walsh [1:40 PM]: Jeez only see 9.5 myself
Stuckey [1:41 PM]: I want double digits now. Hunting
Scott T. Miller [1:41 PM]: +11.5 was gone in about 15 seconds
Stuckey [1:41 PM]: Game will settle and should be way worse than 13-0
PJ Walsh [1:41 PM]: Yup, saints needed a red zone turnover and fourth down penalty to manage 13
PJ Walsh [1:42 PM]: Gonna bet Rams live if they don’t score on this drive as soon as NO gets the ball back
Scott T. Miller [1:42 PM]: I think we’ll see rams double digits if they punt again
Scott T. Miller [1:45 PM]: Rams +11.5 (-130)
Stuckey [1:45 PM]: There’s our Rams double digits
Scott T. Miller [1:46 PM]: Yup, hit it as well
Stuckey [1:46 PM]: Just played +10.5 -109
John Ewing [1:47 PM]: Why not wait until punt, assuming they don’t get this 3rd down
PJ Walsh [1:47 PM]: Waiting for a punt and I’m right along with you. Should get off 11 with a punt
Stuckey [1:47 PM]: Will play Saints live Under 10 if Rams get first down that’s why
John Ewing [1:47 PM]: I’m with PJ, think you get a better number after one more play
Stuckey [1:47 PM]: I’d rather have Rams +10.5 while I can get it. Not like you’re going to get 14 with a punt
Rams run a fake punt and pick up the first down.
PJ Walsh [1:50 PM]: Haha, well there goes that idea. I was looking at the live betting and saw it move to 9.5 really quick, haha
Live Props Posted
Evan Abrams [1:31 PM]: 5d offers live yardage props for full game during commercial breaks
Evan Abrams [1:32 PM]: TDs too, CJ Anderson +150 doesn’t sound awful, wonder how much they change from pregame without looking it up
Scott Miller [1:34 PM]: Rams doing a decent job on Thomas so far
Ian Hartitz [1:35 PM]: doesn’t look like Talib is traveling either. just pretty constant double teams
Scott T. Miller [1:35 PM]: when peters is on him, that’s an auto-target
Jared Goff Interception
PJ Walsh [1:21 PM]: Rams live line will be interesting if saints punch it in. Fluky as hell turnover and field position.
Scott T. Miller [1:21 PM]: Saints -6.5 now
Now 7.5 (edited)
Collin Wilson [1:21 PM]: They quickly knocked it back down to 6.5 when I tried to get some down
Stuckey [1:22 PM]: Looking for Rams live if a TD here
Collin Wilson [1:23 PM]: Right back down to 3.5, congrats if you got the 7.5 on the Rams in the 4 second window
Collin Wilson: Pregame bet of Under 56
The Saints have been dreadful in the first quarter over their past six games (more on that below).
I’ll be looking for a Saints live and Over 45ish if this game starts really slow. That’d give me a nice 11-point middle on my pregame bet.
Wilson: I’ll be looking for the Saints at a pick’em or better
Upon release of the sides and totals for both conference championships, there were no initial leans. Both games are rematches, and the posted point spreads indicate these teams are close to a pk at neutral sites.
However, there’s one constant in the NFC Championship Game that we can exploit: The New Orleans Saints are slow starters.
I’ll be looking for a better Saints number live because of their sluggish starts. Since Thanksgiving, the Saints have scored a grand total of 10 points in the first quarter of games … 10 whole points in the first quarter of their past six games combined!
The Saints are second in points scored per opportunity (past the opponent’s 40-yard line) while the Rams defense ranks 17th. Furthermore, the Saints are 12th in passing downs explosiveness to the Rams’ defensive rank of 30th.
Once Drew Brees gets into passing down situations — possibly with the Rams in the lead — the Saints offense should start to click.
As with the Eagles getting out to a 14-0 lead over the Saints in the Divisional Round, look for the right time to get a Saints live wager placed and then recorded in the Action App.
