The past two seasons have seen a shift in the balance of the AFC East. Out went the dynasty of the New England Patriots and in came the immensely talented Buffalo Bills. This division was one of young QBs – with all four starters Week 1 last year being younger than 26 years old. That youth evolves into experience and the AFC East will be one of the more competitive leagues moving forward. Below, we’ll look at AFC East odds and forecast the division for 2022.

Included on this page are odds for the AFC Division crown this season, past winners, and more.

2022 AFC East outlook and predictions

The Bills (11-3) are one win away from officially clinching the AFC East and they’ve secured a playoff spot with their sights set on the top seed in the AFC. Buffalo is the favorite to win Super Bowl 57 with the Chiefs (+550) trailing. The Bills are getting -20000 odds at FanDuel to wrap up their division. 

The Dolphins (8-6) nearly took down the Bills in Buffalo, but couldn’t stop Josh Allen in the fourth quarter and lost on a buzzer-beating field goal. They’re getting +5500 odds to win the division, which would require a 3-0 finish while Buffalo goes 0-3. The Dolphins are getting -250 odds to hold onto a Wild Card spot.

How to bet on NFL division winners

NFL division markets are multiway futures markets. When reading odds, consider what a $10 bet would yield if successful:

  • Buffalo Bills -225 (to win $4.44, total payout $14.44)
  • Miami Dolphins +450 (to win $45, total payout $55)
  • New England Patriots +500 (to win $50, total payout $60)
  • New York Jets +2200 (to win $220, total payout $230)

Using an odds calculator can not only help you figure payouts, but also implied win probability. At -225, the Bills have an implied 69.2% probability to win the AFC East; the Dolphins 18.8%, the Patriots 16.7%, and the Jets 4.4%.

It may prove fruitful to find handle and bet percentage information, as well. If there’s large public support of the Dolphins this year because of their flashy offseason moves, it may be worth fading the public. Monitor movement in the odds as the offseason and regular season progresses to capitalize on potential payouts.
