2022 NFL Betting Predictions: Early Picks of Potential AFC and NFC Division Winners

2022 NFL Betting Predictions: Early Picks of Potential AFC and NFC Division Winners

The first full week of the NFL preseason is in the books, which means that we have had a chance to get a look at every single team. Making predictions about the season based on those games is not a smart thing to do, as most of the big-name players in the league didn’t see any playing time. That will change as the preseason progresses, but even without seeing those players, we can still begin to make predictions for the season based on the rosters and the strength of each division. With that in mind, let’s make some NFL AFC Betting, and NFL NFC Betting predictions about who might win each division in the NFL this season.

Early NFL Predictions for AFC and NFC 2022 Division Winners

American Football Conference

  • East

While some division battles are going to be tight, the general consensus here is that the East is Buffalos to lose. They are in as the favorite at -224 and are considered one of the favorites to win the Super Bowl this season. Gotta go with the Bills here.

  • North

This is where things could get interesting, as we expect the Ravens to be healthy again this season and ready to challenge the Bengals. Baltimore is in at +156, while the Bengals are at +179. These two will likely go head-to-head to win it, but I am leaning toward the Bengals.

  • South

Again, we are looking at a 2-horse race here, just as it was last season, between the Colts and the Titans. The bookies are giving the edge to Indianapolis at odds of -125, and I tend to agree with them. The addition of Matt Ryan as their QB this season looks like a good move, and while it may not translate to a championship, it could be good enough to see them win the division.

  • West

This has the potential to be the most exciting division, not just in the AFC but also the division. The Chiefs are in as the favorite, as they have been over the past few seasons, but the Chargers, Broncos, and Raiders can all make a case for winning it, too. I am going to go out on a limb here and take the LA Chargers.

National Football Conference

  • East

This has been one of the weakest divisions in football over the past couple of years, but the Cowboys and Eagles both look like potential playoff teams this season. It is the Cowboys who are in as the favorite to win the East at odds of +115, and I do like them at those odds. The Eagles might be worth a look at +180.

  • North

It’s tough to imagine any team other than the Green Bay Packers winning the North, and the bookies tend to agree, as they have the Packers listed at -186 to win the division. The Vikings seem like the best bet to upset the apple cart in this division, and they are in at odds of +280 to win it.

  • South

This could well be the season that we see Tom Brady finally ride off into the sunset, but will he leave the game as a champion one more time? Well, it all begins with winning the division, which looks to be more than manageable for Brady and the Buccaneers, as they are in at -300 to win the South.

  • West

This is another division that looks to be stronger than most, with 3 teams out of the 4 looking good enough to make the playoffs. The Rams are in as the favorites, which you would expect from the defending Super Bowl champions, but do not count out the 49ers (+167) or the Cardinals (+350). I still like the Rams here, though.
