Watch the NFC Championship Game — New Orleans Saints vs. Los Angeles Rams Live Stream Online
The 2019 NFC Championship Game between the New Orleans Saints and Los Angeles Rams is set to kick off on Sunday afternoon. It’s the second time this season that these teams will meet, but this time around the stakes are much higher. The action returns to the Superdome—the site of New Orleans’ key 45-35 victory over the Rams in Week 9, a win that allowed the Saints to nab the top seed in the NFC despite both teams finishing the 2018 campaign with identical 13-3 records—with a berth in Super Bowl LIII on the line in a win-or-go-home 2019 NFL Playoff matchup.
Oddsmakers believe that the Saints will once again come away victorious, but not by as large of a margin as in the first tussle. They opened the squad as a three-point favorite as soon as the NFC Championship Game matchup was set and that line hasn’t changed at all despite the fact that the underdog Rams are drawing 59% of overall bets. That’s because the larger wagers have been on New Orleans, with 57% of the money liking the franchise to make its first Super Bowl appearance since winning it all a decade ago. The total on this game has also stood pat at 57 points, a surprisingly low number given the last showdown between these foes reached the 80-point mark. Still, with a trip to Atlanta on the line, it may not be the wisest to expect the same surge of scoring to occur in the rematch.
Will Los Angeles find a way to pull an upset in the NFC Championship Game and get back to the Super Bowl for the first time in nearly two decades, or will the Saints show that they have this opponent’s number and complete the sweep in the Superdome on Sunday?
