Division Winner And Betting Props

The Green Bay Packers opened as the biggest favorites to win their division with at least -300 odds to earn a third straight AFC North crown. After the Minnesota Vikings handled the Packers in Week 1, odds tables have shortened up considerably with those teams looking like capable contenders.

Here is a look at the landscape of the NFC North.

2022 NFC North outlook and predictions

The Vikings (10-3) weren’t able to clinch the division in Detroit this Sunday but they still have -10000 odds to win the NFC North with a sizable lead over the fighting Lions. Minnesota’s magic number is just one game to clinch their playoff spot as the North champs. 

The Lions (6-7) still have +4000 odds to win the NFC North and they essentially tripled their chances of making the playoffs as a Wild Card team by beating the Vikings. They’re getting +300 odds at DraftKings to make the postseason.

How to bet on NFL division winners

When betting NFL futures (or any bet, at that) it’s important to shop lines. Consider the payout of a successful $100 bet on the Vikings at DraftKings Sportsbook, who offers Minnesota +275. That bet would yield $275 plus the initial $100 back ($375 total). However, laying the same bet at FanDuel Sportsbook (+300) would pay out $400 total ($300 in winnings), a $25 difference.

It may also be helpful to consider implied win probabilities. Use an odds converter to calculate these:

  • Packers (-190): 65.5%
  • Vikings (+275): 26.7%
  • Lions (+1000): 9.1%
  • Bears (+1200): 7.7%

Longer odds (higher numbers) will yield higher payouts, but suggest a lower win probability. Shorter odds (lower numbers) will have a lower payout but imply a higher win probability.
