NFC East hasn’t had a Back-to-Back Champion in Over a Decade

Led by two rookies in 2016, the Dallas Cowboys surprised many by having a 13-3 season and will be attempting to become the first team since the Philadelphia Eagles from 2001 to 2004 to win the division in consecutive years. Oddsmakers have the Cowboys penciled in as the favorite to win the NFC East again with odds of +115, but the often volatile division offers some intriguing betting options when you consider its tradition of parity over the years.

Pats and Pack Open Preseason as Monster Faves to Win Their Conferences

For some, the start of September means the end of summer. For others, it signals the beginning of the best time of year – football season. Conference futures are now open to bet at most books with the days getting progressively shorter and the two stalwarts of the AFC and NFC owning the shortest odds to win the conferences.

Are Favored Packers Worth the Price in NFC North Race?

The NFC North has been a two-team race for the better part of the last decade, and oddsmakers aren’t expecting that to change ahead of the 2017 NFL campaign.

To no one’s surprise, the Green Bay Packers are the -140 front-runners to win the banner at Bovada. The Minnesota Vikings (+225), Detroit Lions (+425) and Chicago Bears (+1200) round out the list.

Seahawks Expected To Win NFC West ... Again

The Seattle Seahawks look like the class of the NFC West once again. The ’Hawks strolled their way through the division again in 2016 and are just one of two teams in the NFL to play at least one playoff game in each of the past five seasons. 

The Seahawks find themselves listed as a -350 favorite to win the NFC West for a second consecutive year, making them the biggest faves to win any division that isn’t home to the New England Patriots.

Titans are Poised for Breakthrough Season in AFC South

Considered by many to be the worst division in the NFL, the AFC South has produced borderline unwatchable football for two straight seasons and that’s not likely going to change much in 2017.

Can Anyone Catch the Steelers in the AFC North?

Unlike other divisions in the NFL *cough* AFC East *cough*, the AFC North is perennially a toss-up. Since 2007, only the Pittsburgh Steelers in ’07 and ’08 and Baltimore Ravens in ’11 and ’12 have claimed the banner in back-to-back campaigns. According to oddsmakers, that’s likely to happen again in 2017.

At Bovada, the Steelers are +110 favorites to win the North, with the Ravens (+175), Cincinnati Bengals (+250) and Cleveland Browns (+3300) all trailing the black and gold.

Every NFL Team's Odds to Make the Playoffs

While many are getting the most out of the summer, lounging at the beach and enjoying everything the warm weather has to offer, a large portion of us are longing for the days of spending long hours in dingy basements and at crowded sports bars watching NFL football. If you’re reading this article, you are most likely one of these people. I too am one of these people and I love this time of year as oddsmakers begin to roll out an avalanche of betting odds for the upcoming season.

Bell Pegged As Favorite To Pace NFL In Rushing

Predicting who will lead the NFL in rushing yards has been far from a science over the past several years. Dating back to the 2009 season, seven different players have paced the league in rushing yards; Adrian Peterson was the lone back to accomplish the feat twice.

On top of that, the volatility and quick deterioration of running backs have played a big factor in the rushing leader. In the same eight-season span we reference above, seven of the leading rushers were 27 years old or younger. Again, the lone exception is Peterson.

Long Shots Could be the Play in NFL Receiving Futures

Catching footballs in the NFL has always been a glamorous undertaking but some of the rules instituted the last few seasons have made playing wide receiver a downright cushy job and a flanker put into the right situation can have a huge year in today’s game.

Take T.Y. Hilton, for example. The Colts’ No. 1 wideout led the NFL with 1448 yards on 91 receptions after opening the 2016 season with +3300 odds to accomplish the feat.

Brees Favored To Lead The NFL In Passing

If there has been one constant in the NFL, it’s that Drew Brees will be throwing the ball a lot. The New Orleans Saints signal-caller has paced the league in passing yards in five of the past six seasons. The lone outlier was when he finished second during the 2013 campaign.

Makes plenty of sense then that Brees is the +300 favorite to lead the NFL in passing yards in 2017.
