NFC North Odds: Green Bay Packers (-1200)

With questions surrounding the team’s quarterback situation swirling for much of the offseason, there were legitimate questions about the Packers’ outlook for the 2021 season.

Aaron Rodger has been at the forefront of a lot of controversy this season, but when he is on the field, nobody can question his greatness. Rodgers has led the Packers to an 8-2 record in his 10 starts this season, and has been a legitimate MVP candidate 11 weeks in.

It doesn't hurt that the Pack has a top-notch offensive line, one of the best receivers in the league, and one of the best running backs in football. They certainly do not struggle to score points, but a lot of their success depends on there that has been solid for the most part this season.

The team added cornerback Eric Stokes in the first round of the NFL draft to add to a group of defensive backs that now includes three recent first-round picks (Jaire Alexander and Darnell Savage Jr. being the others).

This team is the heavy favorite to close out these last six weeks of the season with another NFC North crown. Although, for betting purposes, it is a steep price at -1200.

NFC North Odds: Minnesota Vikings (+600)

The Minnesota Vikings were an interesting case at the beginning of the season. The team returned key defensive starters Danielle Hunter, Anthony Barr, Eric Kendricks, and Michael Pierce, who have all been a huge help to a unit that struggled last season.

The team also added veterans Dalvin Tomlinson, Bashaud Breeland, and Patrick Peterson to the mix on defense. All in all, this will be a completely different defense from last season – one that has kept the Vikings in a lot of games.

The problem they have had is closing out games. All five of the Vikings' losses this season have been within one touchdown. Not to mention, the team blew multiple double-digit leads early on in the season.

Now, the Vikings are starting to close games and beat some good teams, including this past week against their NFC North rival, Green Bay Packers. The Vikings are now winners of two straight games and find themselves right in the thick of the playoff race.

A playoff berth is certainly not out of the picture, but a division title appears to be somewhat out of reach. However, the Vikings still have two more games against the Bears, and one more against the Lions. Chances are slim, but at +600, it may be worth a flyer.

NFC North Odds: Chicago Bears (+10000)

The team drafted Ohio State star Justin Fields with the 11th overall pick to be their quarterback of the future, and Fields has shown flashes. But all rookie quarterbacks experience growing pains, and we have definitely seen that early on with Fields.

The Bears actually got off to a good start to begin the season, starting 3-2 through the first five weeks. They even beat some pretty good teams in the Bengals and Raiders in that stretch. But after that red-hot start, the Bears have lost five of their last six and just squeaked out a Thanksgiving win over the Lions just one day ago.

The offensive line has been a mess for Chicago. They let a couple of key players walk in free agency and have now sustained some injuries to the replacements.

The defense has been fine as they have talented players at all levels, but the team’s ranking as third in NFC North odds feels warranted until Fields gains more experience, and can prove that he can be a good quarterback at the NFL level.


How To Understand NFC North Odds

When you take a trip to any NFL sportsbook to make a futures bet – more on that later – you’ll notice the odds laid out the same way they are in the above table. Teams with a minus sign (-) preceding their odds are favorites. The rest are underdogs, which you can see because of the plus sign (+). However, when divisions are tight or there are no clear front-runners, the team with the lowest odds is considered the fave.

At -1200 you may like Green Bay and decide to throw $100 on them. If they did win the NFC North, you’d get a payout of $108.33 – your original $100 is returned along with your prize of $8.33. On the other hand, you could believe that the Vikings at +600 are going to rise to the top. That same $100 on them would give you a payout of $700 – you get your $100 back coupled with your winnings of $600.

When oddsmakers set the lines they look at everything from past performances to roster moves to schedule. If a team is a +3500 underdog, it’s probably because they deserve to be. Don’t bet blindly on dogs without doing your research.

What Is A Futures Bet For Football?

This is a bet you’d make weeks or even months in advance on which team you think has the best odds of winning the NFC North. Future betting lines are available early and if you see odds you like, it’s best to jump on them. The odds will shift as the season progresses, players succumb to injuries, trades happen, and teams climb or fall in the standings.
