CHICAGO — While much of the sports world's biggest events have been canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic the NFL season has continued and adapted as the league modified plans for the 2020 Draft in Las Vegas.
With the NFL regular season set to go on as planned, sportsbooks have released futures bets on NFL final standings odds for where each team will finish in their respective division.
Each team has odds available that allow you to place bets on where teams will finish in the division. For example, if a bettor wants to bet on the New York Giants finishing second in the NFC East this season they have +450 odds to do so which would bring a decent return if the miracle happens. Below are the odds for the NFC North final standings along with a winning bet for each team.
NFC North Final Standings Odds
- Third +175
- Second +250
- First +300
- Fourth +350
The Chicago Bears are one of the rare teams at the oddsboard that can realistically finish at any place in their division. The Bears defense is still elite and among the best units in the NFL but the offense is the biggest detriment to the team's success.
Now that the team has traded for Nick Foles, maybe he’ll be the spark the Bears need under center. If the Bears offense is even slightly improved this year that should be the difference between Chicago finishing in second place this year as opposed to their third-place finish a season ago.
Winner: Second (+250).Take their +250 odds to finish in second place as the Bears should be competing for a wild card playoff spot.
- Fourth -150
- Third +300
- Second +500
- First +900
The Detroit Lions are coming off a season in which they finished 3-12-1 and have many needs on the defensive end. The Lions are the favorite to finish at the bottom of the division yet again with -150 odds. However, if they get some defensive help in the NFL Draft they could push for at least a 3rd place finish which comes with +300 odds.
Winner: Third (+300). Last year's team was without Matthew Stafford for some games, giving a worse record than the eye test.
Green Bay Packers:
- First +125
- Second +200
- Third +400
- Fourth +650
Last year’s NFC North Champion was the Green Bay Packers as they went on to make the NFC Championship game. The Packers finished last season with a 13-3 record in Matt LaFleur’s first year as head coach and have the shortest odds of any team to win the NFC North.
Don’t expect the Packers to win that many games this season and bettors should take advantage of either their second (+200) or third place odds (+400). The third-place odds, in particular, would be a good value on the odds board especially if the Bears improve.
If they don’t add another playmaker in the receiving corps outside of Davante Adams, this team will finish with a 7-9 record so take the +400 odds on the Packers.
Winner: Third (+400). Expect the Packers defense to regress, as lost their best linebacker Blake Martinez in free agency.
- Second +200
- First +225
- Third +225
- Fourth +550
The Minnesota Vikings finished last season with a 10-6 record and were second in the NFC North. Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins will have some trouble without Stefon Diggs, who was traded to the Buffalo Bills this offseason.
Minnesota still has one of the better defensive units in the NFL but the offense will only go as far as Dalvin Cook will take it especially with teams having the ability to key in on Adam Thielen with Diggs departure. The Vikings have major holes to fill and that prevents them from being a favorite to win the division.
Winner: Second (+200). Take their +200 odds to finish in second place yet again as that’s the most likely scenario especially with the Packers expecting to regress this season.
