The New York Giants will be the underdogs in the NFC Championship, which will hardly come as a surprise to New York Giants fans. By now Giants fans — and the Giants themselves — should be used to the underdog role.
After defeating the heavily-favored Green Bay Packers to reach the NFC Championship Game, the Giants have been established as two-point underdogs against the San Francisco 49ers in the early odds.
The 49ers won the NFC West and advanced to the title game with a thrilling 36-32 victory over the New Orleans Saints on Saturday. The Giants won the NFC East and have now earned four consecutive victories.
The teams met in San Francisco during the regular season and the 49ers came out with a 27-20 victory. Like Sunday’s title game that matchup was in San Francisco.
