Win Total Bets to Take

Lions/Bears to Finish 1st/2nd in the Division

Odds: +500 (16.7 percent) on BetMGM

  • The Detroit Lions are the massive favorites to win the NFC North.
  • Detroit boasts an elite offensive line, a good quarterback, solid offensive weapons and a young defense that was improved during free agency and the draft.
  • The Chicago Bears surrounded Justin Fields with competent offensive linemen and above-average pass catchers.
  • While the Minnesota Vikings and Bears project to be fairly similar teams on paper, the Bears have the 28th-ranked strength of schedule, while the Vikings are 15th.
  • We have the Bears projected to win slightly more games than the Vikings, and you can see the game-by-game win probabilities for all 32 teams here.

Lions to Win the Division

Odds: +140 (41.7 percent) on FanDuel

  • The Lions scored the fifth most points in the NFL last season and added RB Jahmyr Gibbs and TE Sam LaPorta early in the draft.
  • This team added several new pieces on defense in free agency and the draft.
  • The Vikings were 11-0 in one-score games last year and were out-scored by their opponents.
  • The Bears should be much improved, but won three games last year and look like they’re still one year away from truly contending.
  • The Green Bay Packers are switching from Aaron Rodgers to Jordan Love and, rightfully, have the worst divisional odds in the NFC North.


Jaguars to Win the Division

Odds: +160 (60 percent) on DraftKings

Seahawks OVER 8.5 Wins

Odds: -130 (56.5%) on DraftKings

Raiders UNDER 7.5 Wins

Odds: -150 (60%) on DraftKings
