If you like symmetry, then you will definitely appreciate how the NFL equally divides its 32 teams.

  • The NFL has two conferences, an AFC and NFC conference.
  • Each conference consists of four divisions: East, West, North, and South.
  • Based on geography, four teams are placed into each division, for a total of 16 teams in each conference and 32 teams overall.

Things start to because less symmetrical when we look at the betting odds and the overall strength of each division.

The Pittsburgh Steelers have a win total set by the sportsbooks of +8.5 wins.

That is the lowest win total in the AFC North Division. (Cincinnati, Baltimore, Cleveland, Pittsburgh)

The Jacksonville Jaguars have a win total set by the sportsbooks of +9.5 wins.

That is the highest win total in the AFC South Division. (Jacksonville, Tennessee, Indianapolis, Houston)

This tells us the AFC North is expected to be a much stronger division than the AFC South.

In 2022, teams like the LA Chargers, Buffalo Bills, and Cincinnati Bengals were expected to challenge the Kansas City Chiefs for the AFC title.

When it was all over, the Chiefs prevailed as AFC Champions and triumphed in the Super Bowl, beating the Philadelphia Eagles 38-35.

It was their second championship during the Andy Reid, Patrick Mahomes era.

No surprise that Kansas City is once again the betting favorite to win the AFC West division.

AFC East Betting Odds

In 2022, the Buffalo Bills cemented their position as the Beast of the AFC East.

The Bills finished 13-3 and won their third consecutive AFC East title.

AFC East TeamsTo Win AFC EastTo Win AFC Conf.To Win Super Bowl
BUF Bills+120+450+900
NY Jets+250+1000+1600
MIA Dolphins+290+1300+2500
NE Patriots+800+3000+5500
  • Never has the AFC East been as deep and talented during the Bills’ year run at the top.
  • Aaron Rodgers’ arrival to NYJ has bettors moving the Jets’ Super Bowl odds all the way down to +1600.
  • Meanwhile, the Dolphins, who have the exact +9.5 win total as the Jets, are +2500 to win the Super Bowl.
  • Is a Bill Belichick-coached team really the worst team in the division?

AFC North Betting Odds

The Cincinnati Bengals made a statement in the 2022 playoffs, beating the Baltimore Ravens, Buffalo Bills and falling a field goal short against the eventual Super Bowl champs from KC.

AFC North TeamsTo Win AFC NorthTo Win AFC Conf.To Win Super Bowl
CIN Bengals+150+550+1000
BAL Ravens+220+900+1800
CLE Browns+380+1800+3000
PIT Steelers+470+2500+4500
  • At +750, only Patrick Mahomes has shorter odds to win the MVP than Joe Burrow this year.
  • If Lamar Jackson (+1500 MVP) plays all 17 games, can BAL challenge CIN for the AFC North?
  • Nick Chubb might be the best running back in the NFL. Can Deshaun Watson become a good quarterback again?
  • The Steelers have a win total of +8.5. Unfortunately for them, that is the lowest in the division.

AFC South Betting Odds

The Jacksonville Jaguars achieved something no other team in the AFC South could do last year.

At 9-8, the Jags were above .500. They also won a playoff game with an epic come-from-behind win against Justin Herbert and the Chargers.

AFC South TeamsTo Win AFC SouthTo Win AFC Conf.To Win Super Bowl
JAX Jaguars-155+1400+2800
TEN Titans+310+4000+6000
IND Colts+550+6500+10000
HOU Texans+1000+8500+18000
  • Trevor Lawrence took a huge step forward in Year 2. It could warrant MVP consideration if he makes a similar leap in Year 3.
  • Some say the Tennessee Titans have three quarterbacks. (Ryan Tannehill, Malik Willis, Will Levis). Some say the Titans actually have none. It will be fun to watch that play out.
  • Indianapolis Colts fans have seen some pretty good quarterbacks in a Colts uniform. Anthony Richardson has big shoes to fill.
  • Let the CJ Stroud era in Houston begin! Assuming he beats out Davis Mills.

AFC West Betting Odds

In 2022, The AFC West was supposed to be the gunslinger’s division with supposed superstars at QB for all four of the teams.

Along the way to the gunfight, Las Vegas released Derek Carr, and Russell Wilson led the Broncos to the lowest points per game total in the entire league. (16.9 points per game)

Fortunately, Patrick Mahomes and Justin Herbert lived up to expectations and then some.

AFC West TeamsTo Win AFC WestTo Win AFC Conf.To Win Super Bowl
KC Chiefs-180+350+600
LA Chargers+300+1100+2100
DEN Broncos+600+3000+4500
LV Raiders+1700+5500+7500
  • At -180, KC is once again the overwhelming favorite in the West. Of course, they have won the division seven consecutive times.
  • LAC had a monumental collapse in the playoffs vs JAX last year. Can they just shake that off?
  • Russell Wilson and the Broncos averaged less than 17 points per game. Last in the league. Let’s Ride!
  • There are only four teams in the AFC West, yet the Raiders are -1700 to win the division? That tells you everything you need to know about LVR.

Betting On The NFC Divisions

At 14-3 last year, the Philadelphia Eagles showed the road through the NFC to the Super Bowl goes through Philly.

However, the San Francisco 49ers had an incredible 2022 (13-4), especially considering they suffered so many serious injuries at the QB position.

Undoubtedly, the NFC East division is the strongest NFC division heading into 2023.

NFC East Betting Odds

At 8-8-1, the Washington Commanders finished with a .500 record and finished last in the NFC East division last year.

Despite Dak Prescott missing games with injuries last year, Dallas put together a 12-win season.

NFC East TeamsTo Win NFC EastTo Win NF Conf.To Win Super Bowl
PHI Eagles-115+330+800
DAL Cowboys+175+600+1000
NY Giants+700+2200+1400
WAS Commanders+1300+3000+6500
  • The Eagles did everything right in 2022, except win the Super Bowl. Losing 38-35 to the Chiefs in the final game must have stung, but expect the Eagles to fly high again in 2023.
  • Dallas managed to go 12-5 last year, with Cooper Rush playing more games than anticipated at QB.
  • The NYG quietly had the best Against The Spread (ATS) record in 2022. (13-4 ATS)
  • With Dan Snyder no longer owning the team, Washington is already a big winner in 2023.

NFC North Betting Odds

I had to look up this stat several times to confirm I was reading it correctly.

“The last time the Detroit Lions won their division was in 1993. Back then, their division was the NFC Central, not the North.”

Divisions only have four teams in them. 1993 was a long, long time ago.

NFC North TeamsTo Win NFC NorthTo Win NFC Conf.To Win Super Bowl
DET Lions+145+800+2100
MIN Vikings+260+1200+3500
GB Packers+350+2000+4000
CHI Bears+430+3000+6000

NFC South Betting Odds

Last year, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers started the season with Tom Brady as their quarterback, and they were the betting favorite to win the NFC South.

In 2023, the Bucs are expected to start Baker Mayfield, and instead of being the division winner favorite, they find themselves with the longest odds of the four teams.

NFC South TeamsTo Win NFC SouthTo Win NFC Conf.To Win Super Bowl
NO Saints+130+1700+4000
ATL Falcons+210+2200+5500
CAR Panthers+360+3000+6000
TB Buccaneers+750+5000+7500
  • The Saints welcome Derek Carr to be their quarterback this year, and that is enough to make them the betting favorite in this weak division.
  • Falcons drafted Bijan Robinson early this year, and everyone is excited to watch him play.
  • Maybe the only drafted player who was talked more about than Bijan Robinson was Bryce Young, who the Panthers unveiled as their next franchise QB.
  • Ah, Baker and The Bucs.

NFC West Betting Odds

Geno Smith was a good story last year. But the San Francisco 49ers losing three starting QBs and still getting to the NFC Conference title game has to rival Geno and the Seahawks.

NFC West TeamsTo Win NFC EastTo Win NFC Conf.To Win Super Bowl
SF 49ers-165+400+1000
SEA Seahawks+200+1300+3500
LA Rams+1000+3500+6500
ARI Cardinals+2700+8500+18000
  • Trey Lance or Brock Purdy? 49ers preseason football will be fun to watch.
  • Geno Smith 2.0 – let’s see Geno do it again!
  • Tough to be a good football team when Matt Stafford and Cooper Kupp are hurt. Who will the Rams be this year?
  • No Kyler Murray to start the year. No DeAndre Hopkins at all – since they let him go. Arizona is going to be a very bad football team this year.
