Can Bengals Finally End The Constant Heartbreak?

It’s hard to look at the Cincinnati Bengals and see anything other than chokers. It may not be 100 percent accurate, but there are not many words for a team that has lost in the first round of the playoffs in five consecutive seasons.

However, the Bengals should be their usual dominant selves during the regular season. Andy Dalton had the best season of his career in 2015, A.J. Green is one of the top receiving threats in the game and the second-best scoring defense in the NFL last season remains largely intact.

Success for Chiefs Could Come Down to Division Play

The Kansas City Chiefs played safe and steady football during the 2015 season and ended up with a berth in the playoffs as a result. The Chiefs sported the second-best turnover differential in the NFL and their ball-hawking defense – 22 interceptions last season – helped give a mediocre offense a short field to work with. Another playoff appearance in 2016 certainly seems possible with little turnover on the Chiefs’ roster and some question marks within the AFC West.

Super Bowl Pick: Seahawks vs Steelers Rematch, per Prediction Machine

Super Bowl LI will be a rematch of Super Bowl XL, if one predictive score modelling site’s preseason analysis proves accurate this NFL season.

The most likely computer simulation from the Predictalator – the successful analysis engine produced at PredictionMachine.com which has already played the 2016 NFL season 50,000 times before it's actually played – is a rematch of the Seattle Seahawks versus the Pittsburgh Steelers. That result came up 55.5% of the time and by an average score of 27-24.

I sat watching a replay of the Miami Dolphins-New York Giants with OddsShark’s newest host, Alex Haider, on Monday morning and was quickly reminded how difficult it is to stomach NFL preseason football. 

But Associate Finance Professor Kevin Krieger from the University of West Florida has me rethinking things.

NFC North is Green Bay's to Lose

The Green Bay Packers have owned the NFC North division for years, but the Minnesota Vikings took everyone by surprise and garnered the title in 2015. When it comes to odds lists, it’s those two teams and everyone else this season.

Green Bay is a -190 favorite at Bovada, while Minnesota is not far behind at +200. The Chicago Bears (+900) and Detroit Lions (+1000) are long shots to represent the division in the playoffs.

NFC South Futures: Panthers The Class Of The Division

After years of uncertainty, the Carolina Panthers have emerged from the pack to solidify themselves as the class of the NFC South. After winning the division the past three seasons and making it to the Super Bowl last year, the Panthers are posted as large -220 favorites to win the NFC South once again.

The rest of the NFC South is filled with teams that have plenty of positives but who are also dealing with huge holes.

Week 1 Break Could Give Arizona the Edge in NFC West

After the division was dominated by the Seahawks and 49ers since 2010, the Cardinals took a turn as division champs in 2015. This season, the division features two legit Super Bowl threats in the Seahawks and Cardinals, along with the rebuilding Rams and 49ers who will compete to stay out of the division’s basement.

NFC East Futures: Public Still Backing Cowboys

There has not been a repeat winner in the NFC East since the Eagles won it four times in a row from 2001-2004 so the trends are not in favor of the defending champs. Washington won the division last year by going 9-7 and was the only team in the East with a winning record – brutal.

AFC North Futures: Tons of Parity in 2016

The AFC North is always a dog fight, and the race to become division champion in the 2016 NFL campaign will be no different.

It’s a three-way race for supremacy according to oddsmakers, as the Pittsburgh Steelers (+120), Cincinnati Bengals (+180) and Baltimore Ravens (+300) are the frontrunners at Bovada. The lowly Cleveland Browns are once again on the outside looking in at +2000. Hey, at least Johnny Football is out of town!

AFC West has Tightest Division Odds in NFL

While the Broncos are favorites to win the AFC West, they’re not quite getting the respect from oddsmakers that you’d expect for a defending Super Bowl champ, as they’re a slight +190 favorite to win the division with the Chiefs and Raiders not far off at +220.
