The 2018 Pro football season still a few weeks away, but while it’s never too early to start looking at future bets, most fans usually wait until the preseason to make their season picks & predictions. One of the best ways to get ready for the action is to analyze and review the odds to win each division and look for some free betting advice or info that can point you to the right direction. So let’s start by taking a look at the NFL Odds + Picks for NFC Divisional Favorites.
The NFC North should be interesting once again. The interesting part will likely come with who wants to finish second place. According to Las Vegas odds makers, the big favorites to win the NFC North are the Green Bay Packers. Aaron Rodgers and company are listed at -140, and that’s a pretty big number considering the other actors involved in the divisional race. The rest of the division starts with the Minnesota Vikings at +225, followed by the Detroit Lions at +425, and then finally, the Chicago Bears, who are right at the bottom of the list at +1200 to win the NFC North.
The NFC East was owned by the Dallas Cowboys last year. It was not an easy division to dominate either, but Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott did it. Now, the 2017 season will be a challenge as well, but the Cowboys are expected to repeat last year’s feat and win the division again this year. The Cowboys, who are +115 favorites, have all the pieces back, and no Tony Romo as the back-up. Meanwhile, Eli Manning and the New York Giants are second on the listing of teams to win the NFC East at +250. Finally, the last two teams are tied up. The Washington Redskins and Philadelphia Eagles are both listed at +400 to win the NFC East.
A season ago, the NFC South had another new winner. The Carolina Panthers were a season ago, and then the Atlanta Falcons went to play Super Bowl LI. The sexy pick for many is the Tampa Bay Buccaneers win it this season. The NFC South has some tight odds, with the Atlanta Falcons leading the way. The Falcons are listed at +170. Next, is the Carolina Panthers at +250, and then the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are +260. The final odds to win the NFC South belong to Sean Payton and the New Orleans Saints. The Saints are listed at +350.
Finally, we move to the NFC West. The Seattle Seahawks have long ran the NFC West, with a sprinkle of the Arizona Cardinals. Obviously, before that, the San Francisco 49ers were the team to beat. In 2017, the Seahawks are the favorite to win the division. The Seahawks are listed at -350, that’s a LARGE favorite. The Arizona Cardinals are next, and you can grab them at +300. The final two teams in the NFC West are not given much of a chance. The Los Angeles Rams, in their second season in their new city are listed at +1200, while the San Francisco 49ers have the worst odds of any team in the NFC to win their division. The 49ers are listed at +1800.
