NFL Handicapping Insight
The NFC North was won last year by the Vikings and this year it seems to be top-heavy with the Packers and Vikings expecting to compete for the title. The Lions and Bears both have the ability to surprise people though, so it should be an exciting year in the back and blue division.
2018 NFC North Predictions: Chicago Bears
Bears Odds to Win 2018 Super Bowl: 100/1
Bears Odds to Win 2018 NFC Conference: 50/1
Bears Odds to Win 2018 NFC North Division: 6/1
The Bears are still in a rebuild, but they are closer to a team that will compete for a Super Bowl rather than be the worst team in the league.
Mitchell Trubisky was thrown to the fire last year, and it was really good for his development even though at times he struggled.
They still might be a couple years away from competiting for the NFC North, but it should still be an exciting season at Solider Field.
2018 NFC North Predictions: Detriot Lions
Lions Odds to Win 2018 Super Bowl: 50/1
Lions Odds to Win 2018 NFC Conference: 33/1
Lions Odds to Win 2018 NFC North Division: 6/1
Matt Patricia is now in charge of the Lions and the expectations are that he will be able to turn around this team, even though it might not be this year.
The leader of this team is Matthew Stafford and the offense is good. Golden Tate and Marvin Jones are on the outside and are quite a duo.
There are still a lot of questions regarding the defense and the running game needs to pick it up, or it could be a disappointing season at Ford Field.
2018 NFC North Predictions: Green Bay Packers
Packers Odds to Win 2018 Super Bowl: 14/1
Packers Odds to Win 2018 NFC Conference: 8/1
Packers Odds to Win 2018 NFC East Division: 3/2
Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is back to being healthy, and that is a key to this team as they try to finish back on top of the NFC North.
The Packers made some changes this offseason especially on the defensive side of the field. Out is Dom Capers and in is former Cleveland Browns head coach Mike Pettine.
Players have raved about his coaching early in the offseason and it seems to be the voice that the locker room needed.
This year still comes down to how well Aaron Rodgers plays. He is still going to need to carry the team to victories.
The rest of the team should be able to at least carry their weight a little more.
2018 NFC North Predictions: Minnesota Vikings
Vikings Odds to Win 2018 Super Bowl: 10/1
Vikings Odds to Win 2018 NFC Conference: 6/1
Vikings Odds to Win 2018 NFC North Division: 7/5
The Vikings shipped out Case Keenum and brought in Kirk Cousins to be the quarterback.
Mike Zimmer once again this year is going to have one of the best defenses in the league and after losing in the NFC Championship game last year, the expectations are high.
Dalvin Cook is back and healthy in the backfield and he should help take some of the load off the shoulders off Kirk Cousins.
The expectations are high this year at US Bank Stadium, and the Skol chants will be out in full force.
Cappers Picks 2018 NFC East Predictions
It’s hard to pick against a healthy Aaron Rodgers but it needs to be done in this case.
The Vikings have too good of defense and Rodgers and the Packers haven’t had success at US Bank Stadium. I think the finish will be Vikings in first followed by the Packers, Lions and Bears.
