Odds To Win The AFC East: Patriots Making Mockery Of Division

AFC East Betting Odds October 23, 2019 New England Patriots

Nearly two months in the 2019 NFL season, the AFC East division may not be fully decided but according to oddsmakers, the New England Patriots are a near lock to win the division title for the 17th time in 18 years.

Online sportsbook Bovada has the Patriots as -2500 favorites, making them the largest fave in any division in the NFL after seven weeks. Following the Patriots are the Buffalo Bills at +700, New York Jets at +8000 and Miami Dolphins at +100000 to round out the teams in the AFC East.

Any Chance For Another Team To Pass the Patriots?

The chance of another AFC East team passing the New England Patriots and winning the division is almost zero. The Patriots are undefeated at 7-0 through seven weeks of the 2019 NFL season with wins over the Bills, Jets (twice) and Dolphins so far.

The Pats defense is starting to become historic, helping the team to a +175 point differential, and has yet to give up more than 14 points to an opponent. They’ve shut out the Dolphins and Jets and lead the league in forced turnovers with 22.

The only team that could really give them a go would be the offensively inept Buffalo Bills, who could only manage 10 points vs the Patriots in Week 4 and limited the Pats to 16 points in the loss due to their much-improved defense. With a game in hand over the Bills in the standings, it would take a colossal collapse by the Patriots to allow the Bills (5-1 SU) to pass them in the division.

As for the New York Jets and Miami Dolphins, don’t even bother unless you like being charitable to your local bookie. They have a combined record of 1-11 SU and were both beaten handily by the Patriots this season. The Fins are basically tanking for a top draft pick and the Jets can’t get out of their own way. New York’s season was kissed goodbye after Week 1 when QB Sam Darnold had to miss four games due to mono and the Jets now sit at 1-5 SU. Ouch!

Here are the AFC East divisional odds going into Week 8:

Odds to Win The 2019 AFC East

Buffalo Bills+700
New York Jets+8000
Miami Dolphins+100000
