- The Tennessee Titans are beginning to run away with the AFC South, now with -500 odds.
- The Pittsburgh Steelers fell from +450 odds to +1200 to win the AFC North.
- The Buffalo Bills’ betting line shortened from -220 to -450 in the AFC East.
- The Green Bay Packers are now -400 to win the NFC North after being -220 a week ago.
LAS VEGAS – The NFL divisional odds are fickle and vary heavily on a week-to-week basis. After the most recent games, the odds have seen a lot of movement once again.
AFC South: Tennessee Titans Extend Lead
The AFC South has been thought to be a two-team race between the Tennessee Titans and Indianapolis Colts since the offseason. Now, NFL betting sites have seemingly established the Titans as the runaway favorites.
AFC South Division Odds
- Tennessee Titans -500
- Indianapolis Colts +450
- Houston Texans +3000
- Jacksonville Jaguars +3000
The Titans are now the biggest favorite in any division of the NFL following their Week 3 win over the Colts. Currently, Tennessee is the only team in the division with a winning record, as well as the only team with a win on the road. Given their competition, their betting line makes sense.
AFC North: Steelers Fall Behind Bengals
The AFC North is one of just two divisions, along with the NFC West, to have a favorite with plus-money value. However, the biggest story of the week in the division is just how far the Pittsburgh Steelers have fallen with online sportsbooks.
AFC North Division Odds
- Baltimore Ravens +110
- Cleveland Browns +120
- Cincinnati Bengals +900
- Pittsburgh Steelers +1200
Pittsburgh was +450 prior to the week but now sits as the longest shot in the division. Things don’t seem in line to get any better for the Steelers as they were given the toughest strength of schedule this season.
AFC East: Bills Build Lead, Jets The Longest Shot In NFL
Over the last two weeks, the Buffalo Bills have been as dominant as any team in the league. They’re tied with the largest point differential and have seen their odds shorten significantly in response.
AFC East Division Odds
- Buffalo Bills -450
- New England Patriots +650
- Miami Dolphins +650
- New York Jets +8000
Buffalo was -220 a week ago and will likely see their odds shorten again next week after they beat the Houston Texans. They’re favored by 16.5 points, the largest spread to this point this season. Also, the New York Jets are the longest shot to win the division of any team.
New York has the worst point differential in the NFL and has scored just 20 points through three weeks, the fewest in the league by a significant margin.
NFC North: Packers And Bears Move In Opposite Directions
The Green Bay Packers had a -220 line to win the NFC North a week ago while the Chicago Bears were the second choice at +400. After the third week of NFL games, that has changed.
NFC North Division Odds
- Green Bay Packers -400
- Minnesota Vikings +375
- Chicago Bears +1400
- Detroit Lions +5000
The Bears had one of the worst offensive performances in the history of the NFL and netted just one passing yard for the game, which is likely the reasoning behind the odds shift. Those who believe Chicago can still pull off the upset should jump on their betting line now.
