2010 NFC North Lines / NFL Preview

NFL Division Preview – NFC North

In our quest to be the ONLINE LEADER in NFL Gambling & NFL Handicapping information we’re way out ahead of the rest with our 2010 Divisional Previews for all 8 NFL divisions.

We will be covering the entire off season for each team and giving you a preview of the upcoming 2010 season with updates from now through kickoff of Week 1 of the NFL 2010/2011 Season.


The lines are out for the early favorites to win each NFL Division and it is not too early to start considering your NFL Futures bets. After all, you just may find that your fave is good value right now.

The NFC North is a tough division to call especially since we don’t yet know if Brett Favre will return for the Minnesota Vikings. The Packers are still the oddsmakers favorites to win the division and they must think that Favre will indeed return.

Hence the +140 that has been set for the Vikes. Chicago still appears to be a year or two away and Detroit will continue to flounder for another year at least.

Green Bay Packers: +130

The NFC North boasts two of the top four teams in the NFC. The Green bay Packers look like they will have to slug it out once again with the Minnesota Vikings for the crown. The Packers go into the season still with one of the most dynamic offenses in football.

Aaron Rodgers, Donald Driver, Greg Jennings and Jeremichael Finley are ready to terrorize the league once again, that is if the leaky offensive line can protect Rodgers from getting killed. The running game is still anchored by Ryan Grant, a player that most do not have a whole lot of faith in. The defense is still strong. Opposing teams will still have Clay Matthews and Rod Woodson to deal with.

The Packers have a good team but if Favre comes back, they might be a tad worse than the Vikings in every statistical category. I still like the Packers to continue their rise and the Vikes to start to fall this year. Just a hunch!!

Minnesota Vikings: +140

Minnesota is still waiting on Brett Favre – big surprise!  Why can’t that jerk make up his mind and let his team adequately prepare for life with him or without him? The Vikings will have possibly the most complete team in the NFL this year – their offense with Favre, Adrian Peterson, Sidney Rice, Percy Harvin and V. Shiancoe is one of the more balanced attacks in the league and the defense still boasts names like Jarred Allen, Pat and Kevin Williams and Ray Edwards. The Vikes are a scary team on both sides of the ball.

The Viking have to think that 2010-2011 is their year. They went 8-0 at home last year and they had Green Bay’s number. If Favre returns, Minnesota could easily emerge as top dog in the NFC North.

Chicago Bears: +350

The Chicago Bears did some good things in the off season to improve their team. Offensively, they brought in Offensive Coordinator mike Martz to help Jay Cutler and limit his mistakes (26 interceptions last year). On defense, the Bears lured Julius Peppers away from Carolina to add to an already good Bears defense. Add in the fact that Brian Urlacher should return healthy this year and the Bears suddenly seem formidable. Chicago still has no credible receiving threat and they have to play Minnesota and Green Bay two times apiece this season.

The Bears should be better but a return to glory is still a ways away. Matt Forte is no Marshall Faulk and Devin Hester is no Torry Holt. Mike Martz might make a difference but not nearly enough of one to allow the Bears to challenge this year.

Detroit Lions: +2000

The Detroit Lions are cellar dwellers but unlike in years past, they appear to be moving in the right direction. Matt Stafford, Calvin Johnson, Brandon Pettigrew and Kevin Smith all give the Lions a dynamic young offense that will have years to grow together. The Lions still have the worst defense in the NFL and did nothing to improve upon that in the offseason. Therefore they will surely finish at the back of the pack once again in the NFC North.

The Texans’  running game did little to improve itself (no runner on the Texans eclipsed 450 yards last season) but newly drafted Ben Tate and a healthy Steve Slaton will hopefully give the offense something that they can depend on.

Place your NFL Futures bets on Indianapolis to win their division with confidence – their time isn’t nearly up!
