If you’re an OddsSeeker reader, then there are two things you know that I love doing:

  • Rankings Things
  • Making Predictions

It’ll be the latter of the two that we focus on today, as I will be taking a look at each NFL Division and giving out my winners for the 2022 NFL Season. You can then take those winners and go on over to any New Jersey Online Casino you like, and you can place some NFL future bets of your own on things like division winners, Super Bowl winners, and even MVP. 

The odds I’ll be using today are provided by DraftKings Sportsbook, which is one of the most popular sportsbooks across the country. Be sure to check out these fresh DraftKings Promos before making your bets!

The AFC

AFC East: The Buffalo Bills (-230)

This one wont win you much money, but if you want a safe bet with decent odds, then this is a great place to start. Sure, the Dolphins made some scary additions to their offense this offseason and the Patriots are..well...the Patriots. BUT this Bills team proved they could hang with the best last season, and have a sour taste in their mouths that they want to wash out with a nice Lombardi Trophy victory. The Bills have a ton of returning talent, and their defense looks Super Bowl ready already. This is about as close to a lock as you can get.

AFC North: Cincinnati Bengals  (+180)

Believe it or not, the reigning Super Bowl runner-ups are NOT the favorite to win the North this year–it’s Lamar Jackson and the Ravens. And while the Ravens' offense will always be threatening for as long as Jackson is behind center, I have two words that the oddsmakers obviously forgot about before disisng the Bengals: Joe Burrow. Burrow is an absolute stud, and is the epitome of football. In a recent interview on Barstool's podcast “Bussin’ With The Boys,” Burrow’s former tight end CJ Uzomah dropped the fun fact that Burrow will sit there in the locker room and play chess against HIMSELF. And this guy is going to lose the division? I don’t think so.

AFC South: Tennessee Titans (+170)

I’m going against the grain with this one too, seeing as how the Colts are favored to win the division (at -135). The thing with this is that it’s not necessarily that I LOVE the Titans, it’s just that I really don’t like Colts this year. I don’t trust Matt Ryan, and the rest of their offense is reliant on Jonathan Taylor, and when your offense revolves around a position that is so frequently injured it's never good. Take the Titans here with this one, because I really think it’s your best bet.

AFC West: Kansas City Chiefs (+175)

This is a great chance for you to get the Chiefs at plus money before the odds take a change. Thanks to the dangerous Chargers and the newly dangerous Broncos (who I actually don’t think are that dangerous) the Chiefs are squeaking by as the favorites in the West at plus money. Sure, they lost Tyreek Hill. But there has been good news from Chiefs camp regarding new addition JuJu Smith-Schuster, and of course, they still have Kelce, so their passing offense is still versatile. Take the Chiefs at plus money before things take a turn.

The NFC

NFC East: Philadelphia Eagles (+160)

I love Jalen Hurts. I love AJ Brown. I love this Eagles team. Especially considering their opponents (The Cowboys, Commanders, and Giants) I think this is the Eagles division to lose. It’s time for the Eagles to take a step up and return to their Super Bowl winning form.

NFC North: Green Bay Packers (-190)

The Packers are lucky their division stinks because I really don’t like the Packers this year either. Davante Adams left, so who’s left for Rodgers to throw the ball to? He doesn’t even have Valdez-Scantling. If Aaron Jones can stay healthy then they’ll at least have a strong run game, and oh yea–there’s this one guy named Aaron Rodgers at the helm that will not let his team be bad. I’m going Packers here, but I’m weary. 

NFC South: Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-250)

The NFC is a bit more cut and dry than the AFC. The Buccaneers should have the Division locked up after week 5–that is, of course, unless Jamies Winston goes super Saiyan and Michael Thomas is able to stay on the field. The Buccs haven’t really changed personnel since Brady arrived–if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. I still predict a bit of a decline for Brady, who is a million years old (million and a half? I lost count) but they should still have no problem.

NFC West: LA Rams (+125)

This is the toughest Division in the NFC, and a lot of it comes down to whether or not Stafford can remain/become healthy. The reigning Super Bowl champs I think are still the ones to win it all in 2023 (yes, I’m predicting a repeat) and if Stafford can play from Week One then they should have no problems winning the division. The Niners are their biggest competition, but I’m reluctant to take them because they really have no definite starting QB. The Cardinals at +400 are a good pick to keep your eye on, but if you want to lock in winners, then the Rams are your safest bet.
