NFL Handicapping: NFC Future Odds | 2013 NFC Picks

2013 NFC Preview – Conference Odds and Predictions

The start of the 2013 NFL regular season is still over two months away, but to get you ready for all the action BetOnline has already released its futures odds for all 16 teams in the NFC in terms of winning their division this year.


The following is a breakdown of all the odds as well as a couple of insider tips as to which team should come out on top.

NFC East

Dallas Cowboys +200
New York Giants +200
Philadelphia Eagles +400
Washington Redskins +250

All four teams have solid reasons why they should win the division this season to go along with a whole set of other reasons why they won’t. New York probably has the best shot to come out on top with Eli Manning under center, but the new look Eagles under the guidance of Chip Kelly could be filled with surprises this season.

Washington is poised to take a step backwards as opposing defenses start to figure out Robert Griffin III and the Cowboys will be the Cowboys with another late-season collapse.

NFC South

Atlanta Falcons +110
Carolina Panthers +540
New Orleans Saints +200
Tampa Bay Buccaneers +550

The Falcons owned the South in 2012 with the best record in the NFC at 13-3 and has all the tools in place to post their fourth-straight season of double-digit wins. The big wildcard in this division is the Saints. With head coach Sean Payton back at the helm and Drew Brees still behind center, New Orleans could be poised for a huge turnaround from last season’s 7-9 record.

Carolina should be better as well as Cam Newton finally settles into his role as the team’s franchise quarterback and Tampa Bay still has enough talent to be competitive, but both these teams face an uphill climb hang with the Falcons and the Saints. [soliloquy id=”82219″]

NFC North

Chicago Bears +350
Detroit Lions +650
Green Bay Packers -160
Minnesota Vikings +600

Green Bay has some unfinished business after painful exits from the playoffs the past few seasons so you would think winning the division should be a given. Chicago won 10 games last season but decided to go in a new direction with Marc Trestman as head coach. If his new offensive scheme clicks with quarterback Jay Cutler we could be in for a tight race in the North.

Minnesota will be hard-pressed to match last season’s 10-win total as a good deal of that success was a bit of smoke and mirrors. The Lions will definitely win more than four games in 2013, but not nearly enough to join the race between Green Bay and Chicago.

NFC West

Arizona Cardinals +2500
San Francisco 49ers +100
Seattle Seahawks +110
St. Louis Rams +600

When the 2013 futures odds were first released, San Francisco was the clear favorite to win a second-straight NFC title. As the offseason has progressed it is not even a heavy favorite to win its division with Seattle rapidly closing that gap. Both teams have the talent to go all the way this season so it comes down to which one gets the most breaks throughout the year.

The Rams and the Cardinals are just going along for the ride, but of the two, St. Louis is in the best position to take a step forward from last season’s 7-8-1 record. Arizona will most likely remain in a holding pattern with Carson Palmer as its starting quarterback.
