Now that the NFL Draft is over, and most of the big-name free agents have found a home, it’s time to take a look at the favorites to win each of the eight divisions. Let’s take a look at the betting favorite to win each division in the NFC and AFC so you can bet against their NFC Divisional odds and their AFC Divisional odds respectively.
Potential Playoff Teams – The Division Winners | NFL Betting Predictions
National Football Conference
NFC East – How ‘Bout Them Cowboys
Dallas is a huge favorite to win this division. And it’s not necessarily because the Cowboys are a great team, it’s because the rest of the division isn’t very good. The Cowboys should have a very good offense, but there are still a lot of question marks surrounding the defense. We’ll see if Dak Prescott can take another step forward.
NFC North – Owned By Rodgers
Until Aaron Rodgers retires, Green Bay should be the favorite to win the North. Even though they lost Davante Adams, the Packers still have the best offense in the division. They’ve made some improvements to the defensive side of the ball, and Green Bay should dominate this division once again.
NFC South – Brady is Back!
- Tampa Bay Buccaneers -280
When Brady came back from his month-long retirement, the odds swung in Tampa Bay’s favor. Much like the NFC East, the rest of this division isn’t very good. As long as Tampa stays healthy, they should run away with the South.
NFC West – Can the Rams Defend Their Title?
The Rams lost some key pieces, but they replaced them with some very good players. The Rams will be challenged by Arizona and San Francisco, but on paper, they have the best team.
American Football Conference
AFC East – Nobody Circles the Wagons Like the Buffalo Bills
AFC North – Elementary My Dear Watson
Now that the Cleveland Browns have acquired Deshaun Watson, they’re the favorites to win the division. Cleveland has a lot of offensive weapons, and many blame the poor play of Baker Mayfield for the Browns not going farther. We’ll see if Watson is the answer. Remember, he could miss some games due to a league suspension.
AFC South – Is Ryan the Answer
For the fourth straight year, the Colts will have a new starting quarterback. They’re hoping that Matt Ryan is the answer. With good receivers, one of, if not the best running back in the league, and a good tight end, Ryan could be what the Colts need. Their defense is also very good, so this team could make a run at the Super Bowl.
AFC West – No Hill, No Problem
This is the best division in football. Even without Tyreek Hill, the Chiefs are favored to win the division. We’ll see if Patrick Mahomes can do it without Hill, or if the Chiefs will miss the speedster. The Chiefs have made some improvements to their defense, so we’ll see if those additions pay off.
