There are two teams left standing in the NFC this season, and they are the San Francisco 49ers and Philadelphia Eagles. Both teams came through at home in the Divisional round, and are now just one win away from getting to the Super Bowl. In our NFL playoff betting picks for the NFC Championship Game, we break down 49ers vs Eagles from Lincoln Financial Field.
49ers vs Eagles Betting Pick

This game will be played at Lincoln Financial Field at 3:00 PM ET on Sunday, January 29, 2023.
Why Bet the 49ers:
✅ The Eagles beat up on the New York Giants last week and are being seen as the class of the NFC. But there is a problem with that: the Giants are not good. San Francisco’s win over Dallas in the Divisional round was much more impressive and getting them as an underdog is something we will get involved with gladly.
✅ San Francisco does not need its offense to be great to win in the playoffs. They held Dallas to just 12 points in the Divisional round, and their number one ranked defense will again be the difference maker on Championship Sunday.
✅ The 49ers have the fourth-best record in the NFL against the spread this season. They are 13-6 against the number between the regular season and playoffs, and they will cover once again in the biggest game of their season.

San Francisco 49ers
This season has been a wild one for the San Francisco 49ers. They have lost two quarterbacks to injury and made a blockbuster trade for Christian McCaffrey. In spite of all the moving parts, they made it to the NFC Championship Game by defeating the Dallas Cowboys in the Divisional round at home. Here, the Niners will look to get back to the Super Bowl with a win on the road against the Eagles.
San Francisco will face the league’s best pass rush in this contest, as the Eagles had 70 regular season sacks this year. That is expected to cause problems for rookie quarterback Brock Purdy. But the creativity of Kyle Shanahan with the Niners’ offense could offset those concerns to some degree.
Things were incredibly easy for the Philadelphia Eagles in the Divisional round of the playoffs. They took a 28-0 lead over the New York Giants at home, and were able to take their foot off the gas in the second half. Here, they will need to put their foot back on the gas against the best defensive team in the league in the 49ers.
Of course, the Eagles defense is more than formidable in its own right, and will need to take away the running game of the Niners to give themselves the best chance to win. In the postseason, the Eagles have ranked ninth out of 16 teams against the run, though that was in just one game against the Giants. They were tied for 16th against the run in the regular season, and will have their hands full with the duo of Elijah Mitchell and the aforementioned McCaffrey.
