We’re just about an hour away from the NFC Championship Game (3:05 p.m. ET, FOX) between the Los Angeles Rams and New Orleans Saints Saints and you better believe bets are coming in hot!

Though the spread has been stuck at Saints -3 for the past few days, the over/under has seen some interesting activity. Though you’d imagine this over/under would be on the rise given the two teams’ high-scoring offenses, it’s been quite the opposite today.

Early in the week, the over/under actually did rise from the opener of 56 to 57. On Friday, however, it dropped to 56.5.

It could still be found there this morning, but there’s been a late influx of cash money coming in on the under.

This morning, 48% of tickets on the under accounted for just 29% of the money. Not exactly a popular choice among big bettors.

Now, those percentages read 44% of bets and 37% of dollars. While it’s become less popular in terms of bets, it’s become significantly more popular in terms of dollars.

This increase of large bets has impacted the market significantly, as the over/under has dropped two full points down to 54.5.
