AFC East

The Buffalo Bills are the overwhelming favorites to win the AFC East this season. Both New England and Miami have good chances to compete as dark horses in the division, but realistically each is a borderline playoff team. The Jets are projected to finish near the bottom of the division once again. Josh Allen sees the highest odds in the division to win the MVP this season.

NFC East

The Cowboys and the Eagles are almost split in terms of winning this division, while many feel the Washington Commanders are a strong dark horse after the trade for quarterback Carson Wentz. The New York Giants figure to finish near the bottom once again, as running back Saquon Barkley is one of the opening contenders for Comeback Player of the Year. Micah Parsons figures to be a Defensive Player of the Year candidate for the Cowboys, a team with Super Bowl expectations.

AFC West

Probably the strongest division in the NFL, especially with the Broncos getting Russell Wilson and the Raiders getting Davante Adams. Wilson is a MVP contender to begin the season while Adams is an Offensive Player of the Year contender to open with the Raiders. Each are solid dark horses to consider, but the Kansas City Chiefs remain the favorite despite the departure of wide receiver Tyreek Hill. The Chargers have high expectations again, but have trouble finishing seasons - as they enter with both a MVP contender in Justin Herbert and the Coach of the Year favorite in Brandon Staley.

NFC West

The defending Super Bowl champions, Los Angeles Rams, will look to dominate the division that many feel is one of the stronger divisions in the NFL. The San Francisco 49ers are their main threat, but quarterback controversy along with an unhappy wide receiver makes things a bit murky for them. The Cardinals seem to be a team many are avoiding this season, with MVP contender Kyler Murray struggling in back half of seasons. The Seahawks are expected to finish at the very bottom after losing quarterback Russell Wilson.

AFC North

This division seems to be the most 'up in the air' with Cleveland not even getting any futures odds for playoff or win total markets due to their quarterback situation surrounding DeShaun Watson. The Steelers are expected to take a step back with weak depth at the quarterback position, as many wonder when rookie Kenny Pickett will start, if at all? The Ravens and Bengals are the two top front runners as of now, with Joe Burrow a top MVP candidate to begin the season. Baltimore's Lamar Jackson also opens as a MVP contender, but the division as a whole seems to be between both these clubs even if Watson suits up for Cleveland this season.

Baltimore Ravens
Cincinnati Bengals
Pittsburgh Steelers

NFC North

Green Bay is an overwhelming favorite to win the division once again, although many feel the Vikings are close to contending. The Lions had one of the worse records last season, but their ATS was impressive. Chicago might be the team to keep an eye on, as they might struggle immensely following quarterback Justin Fields comments about the team not being very good. Aaron Rodgers is the top MVP contender in this division, while a dark horse contender lies in Minnesota with the trio of Dalvin Cook, Kirk Cousins and Justin Jefferson - all capable of winning awards.

Detroit Lions
Green Bay Packers
Minnesota Vikings

AFC South

This is an interesting division, as the Colts and Titans are the two favorites. Indianapolis now has former MVP Matt Ryan and Offensive Player of the Year contender Jonathan Taylor running the rock. Tennessee has MVP contender Derrick Henry running the ball, who is the favorite for Comeback Player of the Year. Jacksonville and Houston are expected to be near the bottom, although the development of Davis Mills was impressive and gives Houston a chance to hit the relatively low win total for over bettors.

Jacksonville Jaguars
Tennessee Titans

NFC South

This division is Tampa Bay's to own, as MVP contender Tom Brady returns for a Super Bowl run. It would be a surprise to see anyone compete with Tampa here, but the Panthers just traded for Baker Mayfield so they now have a quarterback to compete. Atlanta is expected to finish near the bottom of the division, and might contend for the No. 1 draft pick in April with the lowest win total projection of any team. New Orleans is a toss up, but a borderline playoff team behind the uncertain arm of Jameis Winston and departure of head coach Sean Payton.
