2018 NFC North Division Odds

The Minnesota Vikings are favored to win the NFC North in 2018, while the Green Bay Packers are the second choice. The NFC North is considered one of the best divisions in the NFL. Gregg Rosenthal of called the NFC North the second-strongest division in the NFL behind the NFC South.

The Vikings changed quarterbacks in the off-season, bringing in Kirk Cousins for Case Keenum, the Packers still have Aaron Rodgers, the Lions have a new head coach in Matt Patricia, and the Bears could be one of the most improved teams in the NFL.

Let’s look at the odds, each team and predictions.

Odds to Win NFC North - perBetDSI

Minnesota Vikings -105
Green Bay Packers +140
Detroit Lions +615
Chicago Bears +1110

The Vikings have virtually everyone back, so if Cousins is an upgrade from Keenum, it is hard not to like the Vikings. Rodgers is still considered one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL and Green Bay finally got rid of Dom Capers as defensive coordinator, so they should be improved. Detroit has a new head coach in Matt Patricia who knows how to win, so they could contend this season. The Bears brought in a lot of new players and they are expected to be a serious contender in the division this season.

Minnesota Vikings -105

The Vikings went 13-3 last season and did virtually everything well until losing in the NFC Championship Game to Philadelphia. Most everyone returns this season except for Case Keenum who was replaced by Kirk Cousins. The Vikings also get a healthy Dalvin Cook who returns from injury. It will be hard for Minnesota to win 13 games again, but if Cook returns healthy and if Cousins plays well, the Vikings are going to be really good.

Green Bay Packers +140

The Packers are all about Aaron Rodgers, as when he is healthy and on the field they are very good, but when he is injured they are an also ran. The Packers lost 8 of their last 11 games last season following an injury to Rodgers. The Packers have done nothing recently to prepare a backup quarterback and that lack of vision cost GM Ted Thompson his job. Former director of player personnel, Brian Gutekunst takes over as the new GM. The Packers made a number of changes in the off-season, as they fired Capers and replaced him with Mike Pettine, let Jordy Nelson get away, and brought in Jimmy Graham.

Detroit Lions +615

The Lions finished 9-7 last season and that was really disappointing for a team that was expected to make the playoffs. The Lions fired Jim Caldwell and replaced him with Matt Patricia. We really don’t know what to expect out of Patricia as a head coach, other than he will probably focus on defense. The Lions still have Jim Bob Cooter as their offensive coordinator and Matthew Stafford is still their quarterback. Detroit added LeGarrette Blount and rookie Kerryon Johnson to upgrade the backfield and they brought in Luke Willson to upgrade the tight end position.

Chicago Bears +1110

The Bears will begin the second season under quarterback Mitch Trubisky and it should be an improvement over his rookie year. The Bears went 5-11 last season, but they could challenge for a winning record in 2018. Gone is John Fox who simply can’t coach quarterbacks, and in is Matt Nagy who did a nice job in Kansas City with Alex Smith. The Bears brought in some weapons for Trubisky, as they signed Allen Robinson and Trey Burton and drafted Anthony Miller.

2018 NFC North Predictions

It is hard to get past Minnesota as the top choice to win this division, as they are better on both sides of the ball than any other team in the NFC North, but there is a caveat to that statement. The Vikings need Cousins to play as well as Keenum did last season if they are going to win the division in 2018. If Cousins plays well then Minnesota should have enough to get past a Green Bay team, even with a healthy Aaron Rodgers. The Bears might be able to do enough to challenge Detroit for third place in the division.
