NFL Division Odds: It’s Never Too Early!

Eagles

One the easiest predictions for me last season came with the signing of Chip Kelly in Philadelphia. I am a diehard Eagles fan and have been following the Oregon Ducks for about 8 years. I watched the entire Chip Kelly era in Oregon and knew he was going to be successful going from one bird to another.

NFC East Division Price AFC East Division Price
Philadelphia Eagles +130 New England Patriots -350
Dallas Cowboys +275 Miami Dolphins +500
New York Giants +275 New York Jets +800
Washington Redskins +450 Buffalo Bills +950
NFC North Division Price AFC North Division Price
Green Bay Packers -145 Cincinnati Bengals +170
Chicago Bears +275 Pittsburgh Steelers +210
Detroit Lions +325 Baltimore Ravens +220
Minnesota Vikings +1,600 Cleveland Browns +575
NFC South Division Price AFC South Division Price
New Orleans Saints -110 Indianapolis Colts -150
Carolina Panthers +300 Houston Texans +250
Atlanta Falcons +325 Tennessee Titans +350
Tampa Bay Buccaneers +600 Jacksonville Jaguars +2,000
NFC West Division Price AFC West Division Price
Seattle Seahawks +105 Denver Broncos -450
San Francisco 49ers +130 Kansas City Chiefs +600
Arizona Cardinals +750 San Diego Chargers +500
St Louis Rams +775 Oakland Raiders +2,000

One of the easiest predictions for me last season came with the signing of head coach Chip Kelly in Philadelphia. I’m a diehard Eagles fan and have been following the Oregon Ducks for about 8 years. I watched the entire Chip Kelly era in Oregon, and knew he was going to be successful going from one bird to another.

I have always been a fairly grounded person. I’m not the type of guy who places big money on a Super Bowl wager, as the teams with the best chances of winning a Super Bowl usually have the worst odds to pay out. Instead I look for future bets like the NFL Division Odds. Last year when Chip Kelly became the head coach of the Eagles I knew they had a chance at winning the division, based on his offensive style, LeSean McCoy, and the fact that the NFC East was in shambles. The Eagles were paying 6 to 1 last season and I quickly jumped at the chance to throw $50 down on the birds to take it. It was by no means an easy win, with the last game of the year being the deciding factor over the Cowboys. I had fun cheering for my team throughout the months of November and December as they caught fire, and I like these types of bets that stretch over the whole NFL season. The chart to the right is the current NFL future odds as of July 9th 2014. Of course the NFL Draft, Free Agency, and training camp can fluctuate these odds often. To check out a more updated page see the NFL future odds here. If the numbers are throwing you for a loop, just imagine you bet $100. So +230 is winning $230 on a bet of $100. It would be $23 if you bet $10. As for the odds like -450, that means you’d have to bet $450 to win $100…exactly, who would do that.

Thoughts

Viking fans are probably floored to see they’re such huge underdogs and are reaching for their wallets at +1,600. The NFC North is a very tough division, and as much as you really have a 1 in 4 chance of winning the division, I think the Vikings aren’t the best bet as they’re in a very tough division. The Kansas City Chiefs or San Diego Chargers on the other hand have more luring odds. Both played tough despite new coaching staffs last season, and had solid NFL Draft classes in April. Just because the Broncos are the heavy favorite, doesn’t mean you should just hand them the crown. I think the AFC West could be a lot closer than many are predicting.

“Yeah Right”

For those of you who don’t believe my little story about my Eagles division win wager from last year, I covered my tracks with a post on Reddit in the Eagles section. I of course followed it up with another post after they won, which you can see here -lol
