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 might look like for the winner of the AFC East.

  • Buffalo Bills -240
  • Miami Dolphins +475
  • New England Patriots +500
  • New York Jets +2800

For this race, the Bills are the clear favorites to win. The odds then give roughly equal weight to the Miami Dolphins and New England Patriots, while the New York Jets are long shots. For bettors, the goal is simple: pick which team will win the division.

Payouts will vary based on how much you wager and the odds when you place your bet. If you bet $100 on the Bills at -240 and they win, you’d get back $41.66 in profit. The same bet on the Patriots at +500 would return $500 for a winning bet.

2022-2023 NFL division odds

The odds for the division races continue to take shape. Based on the current numbers, it looks like several of the races will be competitive, while a couple of divisions have a clear favorite. Here are the up-to-date odds for each division.

Last updated: October 5, 2022

Odds to win AFC East

The Bills are still heavy favorites to win the AFC East for the second year in a row, but the odds tightened slightly after they lost to the Dolphins in Week 3. The Patriots are slightly favored over the Jets in the battle to stay out of the basement and finish in third place.

  • Buffalo Bills
  • Miami Dolphins
  • New England Patriots
  • New York Jets

Odds to win AFC North

The Ravens and Bengals are both 2-2, and they’ll be squaring off this week on Sunday Night Football. The winner will naturally become the early favorite, but the battle could last all season long. The Browns are also 2-2 and could also make the race interesting, while the 1-3 Steelers are pegged for last place.

  • Baltimore Ravens
  • Cincinnati Bengals
  • Cleveland Browns
  • Pittsburgh Steelers

Odds to win AFC South

Heading into the season, the Colts were favored with the Titans slightly behind them. Though four weeks, the Jaguars have shaken up the race. It’s still very early, but it’s looking like Jacksonville has a real chance to go from worst to first and take the crown. The winless Texans remain far behind the pack.

  • Jacksonville Jaguars
  • Indianapolis Colts
  • Tennessee Titans
  • Houston Texans

Odds to win AFC West

Over the offseason, the odds suggested that this would be one of the tightest races of the season. It’s not panning out that way. The Chiefs have pulled away from the pack after four weeks. The race for second place will be interesting, as all three teams can make a legitimate case as of right now.

  • Kansas City Chiefs
  • Los Angeles Chargers
  • Denver Broncos
  • Las Vegas Raiders

Odds to win NFC East

In the wake of the injury to Dak Prescott, the Eagles emerged as the clear favorites to win the division over the Cowboys. However, Dallas has stepped it up with three straight wins. The Commanders and Giants could both have a say in how the race plays out, but they currently appear destined to battle it out for third.

  • Philadelphia Eagles
  • Dallas Cowboys
  • New York Giants
  • Washington Commanders

Odds to win NFC North

The Packers lost to the Vikings in the opener, and the race for the NFC North crown is expected to be that much tighter as a result. Minnesota hasn’t looked great since then, while Green Bay continues to struggle offensively. The Lions and Bears have been competitive, but they’re not expected to be big factors.

  • Green Bay Packers
  • Minnesota Vikings
  • Detroit Lions
  • Chicago Bears

Odds to win NFC South

The Buccaneers are 2-2, and the team hasn’t been nearly as impressive as was originally expected. Injuries have played a role, so we’ll see how it all pans out. Despite the struggles, they’re still the clear-cut favorites. The Falcons have risen up the charts in the battle for second after a better-than-expected start.

  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers
  • New Orleans Saints
  • Atlanta Falcons
  • Carolina Panthers

Odds to win NFC West

It’s looking like the battle will come down to the Rams and the 49ers once again. San Francisco got the better of its foe last week to take a slight lead. The Cardinals appear to have third-place on lockdown, but the Seahawks have been competitive in the early stages of the season.

  • San Francisco 49ers
  • Los Angeles Rams
  • Arizona Cardinals
  • Seattle Seahawks

Which races will be the most competitive this year?

For individual division chases, Ravens vs. Bengals in the AFC North, Packers vs. Vikings in the NFC North, and Rams vs. 49ers in the NFC West could be tight races. Meanwhile, the AFC East appears to be the Bills to lose, while the Buccaneers are heavy favorites in the NFC South.

On an overall basis, the race in the AFC South may turn out to be the most intriguing. The Colts were the clear favorites heading into the season, but they certainly haven’t played like that. The Jaguars are off to a hot start and have climbed up the board, while the Titans also have a chance to make things interesting.
