Last updated: May 25

Odds to win the AFC East

The Bills have won the AFC East for the last three seasons and are expected to do so again, but the opening odds don’t appear to be anticipating a runaway. The Jets and Dolphins aren’t too far behind as far as the lines are concerned. Both clubs could see an additional spike in betting interest as the offseason plays out.

Odds to win the AFC North

The Bengals have won the AFC North the last two years in a row. Cincinnati is a pretty heavy favorite to make it happen again, while the early odds suggest that there could be quite a battle for second place. The Ravens and Browns are neck-and-neck on the board, while the Steelers are within striking distance.

Odds to win the AFC South

Last season, the Jaguars claimed the AFC South with a victory over the Titans in the final week of the regular season. Jacksonville is now a heavy favorite to repeat. Tennessee holds the lead as far as the odds are concerned in the battle for second, while the Colts and Texans are looking to rebound from dreadful campaigns last time around.

Odds to win the AFC West

The Chiefs have won the AFC West seven straight times. Early betting odds suggest that the club’s stranglehold on the division has a good chance to continue this season. The odds indicate that the Chargers and Broncos could have an interesting race for second place, while the Raiders are currently well behind the pack in terms of betting odds.

Odds to win the NFC East

The Eagles outlasted the Cowboys in a pretty tight race for the NFC East last season. The current betting lines point to the potential for another battle between the two clubs. The Giants were a playoff team last time out, while the Commanders came up short. The division as a whole was competitive last season, and it could be more of the same this time around.

Odds to win the NFC North

Last season, the Vikings cruised to an NFC North crown, while the Lions and Packers were eliminated from postseason contention on the final day of the season. As the oddsmakers see it, Detroit is the team to beat this season. In the race for second place, the early betting lines suggest that it’s wide open.

Odds to win the NFC South

The Buccaneers were NFC South champs a season ago. At the initial release of betting odds, the club is last on the board and expected to be entering a season of transition. The Saints are currently pretty big favorites to take the crown, while the race for second could end up being between the Panthers and Falcons.

Odds to win the NFC West

The 49ers are the defending NFC West champions and hefty favorites to make it two in a row. The Seahawks were a playoff team last year and could do battle with the Rams for second place, while sportsbooks are not giving the Cardinals much of a chance at the moment.

How to bet on NFL division winners

Sportsbooks make NFL division odds available over the offseason, with numbers for all four teams in each of the eight divisions. As an example, here’s what the numbers look like for the winner of the AFC East.

The Bills are the favorites to win. The odds suggest that the Jets and Dolphins could battle for second place, while the Patriots are long shots. Bettors simply pick which team they think will win and gain some additional rooting interest as the NFL season plays out.

Most competitive NFL divisions in 2023

For this season’s division chases, a few have the potential to be particularly close, at least as far as the betting odds are concerned. At the top of the list is the NFC East, as the lines for the Eagles and Cowboys aren’t too far apart. The AFC East, AFC North, NFC North and NFC South all have clear favorites, but the odds are suggesting that the races could be competitive not only for the division lead, but also for second place.

In the other three races, the Jaguars are big favorites in the AFC South, the Chiefs are expected to win the AFC West once again, and the 49ers are tops in NFC West odds by a sizable margin. As the offseason moves along and the upcoming NFL draft plays out, there could be some additional movement on the board. It’ll be interesting to see where the numbers stand as the NFL season draws near.
