NFL Previews – 2013 AFC North Betting

Bovada has recently updated its futures odds to win each division for the upcoming NFL regular season. As part of an ongoing series for Cappers Picks, this time around we are going to take a closer look at the four teams vying for the 2013 division title in the AFC North.

Odds from Bovada

AFC North Team Pages

Baltimore Ravens +190

The defending Super Bowl Champs have the slight edge to repeat as division champs this season but many of the players that earned Baltimore last season’s title are no longer with the team.

Wide receiver Anquan Boldin is a huge piece missing on offense and the Ravens’ vaunted defense will have to learn how to adjust to life without Ray Lewis (retired) and Ed Reed (traded).

Another concern for this team is the dreaded Super Bowl hangover. Now that Joe Flacco is being paid like an elite quarterback, will he continue to actually play like one? John Harbaugh is too good of a coach to let this team slip too far, but it could be just enough to end-up second or even third in a tough division like the North.

Cincinnati Bengals +200

The Bengals are coming off back-to-back trips to the playoffs as a wildcard team with a 9-7 record in 2011 and a 10-6 record last season. As Marvin Lewis continues to add the necessary pieces to the puzzle on both sides of the ball, you get the feeling that bigger and better things are in store for this team down the road.

The offense is fueled by a passing game that features Andy Dalton throwing the ball to AJ Green and BenJarvus Green-Ellis gained over 1000 yards running the ball in 2012.

The main strength of this team remains a defense that ended last season ranked sixth overall and eighth in points allowed. [soliloquy id=”82219″]

Pittsburgh Steelers +200

Pittsburgh could be the most interesting team to watch in the North this year. It took a step backwards last season to 8-8 after winning 10 or more games in four of the previous five years. Head coach Mike Tomlin is entering his seventh season and in the past has always been able to get his team to bounce back quickly from adversity.

The Steelers are another team whose roster took a hit with the loss of wide receiver Mike Wallace and running back Rashard Mendenhall from an offense that was ranked 14th in the NFL in passing and 26th in rushing the ball.

They also released linebacker James Harrison and guard Willie Colon in an effort to move in a new direction.

Cleveland Browns +650

It looks like Cleveland will once again be bringing up the rear in the AFC North this season after holding down that position for the past few years. The Browns have not won more than five games since 2007 and even if they can show some improvement this season it is doubtful it will be enough to overtake any of the other three teams in the division.

In what has been basically a swinging door at the head coach position, it will now be Rob Chudzinski’s job to try and turn things around. He has an unproven entity at quarterback in Brandon Weeden and a defense that was ranked 23rd in the NFL last year.
