NFC North Odds: 2012 Preview

The Green Bay Packers lost only one game in the regular season last year, but fell short in the playoffs. Winning the NFC North looks like a sure thing for the Packers, who are huge favorites on the futures.

The Packers ran away with the NFC North last season and they're a 4/9 favorite at Bovada to repeat as champs. Offensively the Packers are a force behind quarterback Aaron Rodgers. He has a ton of standout receiving options, including Greg Jennings, Jordy Nelson and Jermichael Finley.


AFC East Odds: 2012 Preview

Two high profile names joined the AFC East in the offseason and neither landed in New England, but the Patriots remain big favorites to capture another division title this season.

The Patriots have won the AFC East the last three seasons and eight of the last nine. They'll enter the new season as a 3/10 division favorite. The Patriots bolstered an already strong receiving corps by adding veteran wideout Brandon Lloyd to a group that includes Wes Welker, Deion Branch, Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez.


AFC South Odds: 2012 Preview

The AFC South division looks like it's the Houston Texans to lose as they enter the season as major division favorites. The Texans claimed their first division title in franchise history a year ago and a repeat is close to a lock according to the oddsmakers, who have listed Houston as a 1/5 divisional favorite.

The Houston offense is led by the three-headed monster of Matt Schaub, Arian Foster and Andre Johnson.


AFC North Odds: 2012 Preview

The Pittsburgh Steelers begin the season as the favorites to win the AFC North, but at least two big question marks hang over them heading into Week 1.

Both question marks for the Steelers are on offense, as they begin the season as a 5/4 favorite to capture the AFC North crown. Question No. 1 for Pittsburgh is what will happen with wide receiver Mike Wallace. The Steelers leading receiver is in the midst of a holdout and it doesn't look like either side is prepared to budge any time soon.
