Bet NFL with William Hill, America’s #1 sportsbook.
Parity is the name of the game in the NFL, as there’s new contenders that enter the fold every single season.
When William Hill released its NFL division futures in early March, there were six teams who were the sole favorite to win their respective division. Only three of them are poised to finish in first place, while teams that opened with longer odds find themselves possibly heading toward a surprising division title.
William Hill still has division futures available for the AFC South, NFC East and NFC West, so let’s take a look at the latest odds for each as well as some notable division wagers that were placed since these markets first went up.
In the AFC South, it’s a two-horse race between the Titans and Colts. Each team is 9-4, yet the Titans are slight -155 favorites to finish on top of the AFC South for the first time since 2008. Meanwhile, the Colts are at +125. The Titans, Colts and Texans were all +200 co-favorites to win this division when William Hill first posted these odds.
One Nevada bettor will be hoping that the underdog can pull away in the home stretch, as a $20,000 AFC South wager was placed back in August on Colts +130 for a total potential payout of $46,000.
All four teams are alive in the NFC East. After first being an 11/1 long shot in March, Washington is -280 chalk. The Giants are next at +325, while the original +120 co-favorite Eagles and Cowboys are at 7/1 and 75/1 respectively.
Washington has attracted a couple noteworthy bets. A New Jersey bettor put $2,700 them at 12/1 in late October for a total potential payout of $35,100, while a Nevada bettor laid $1,000 on Washington at 17/1 for a total potential payout of $18,000. Another New Jersey bettor opted for the local team, as the Giants drew a $2,700 wager at 11/1 for a total potential payout of $32,400.
Out in the NFC West, the Rams (-185) are edging the Seahawks (+145) with the Cardinals far behind at 75/1. The Seahawks were at +210 and the Rams were at +300 when NFC West odds were first out, as both trailed the 49ers at +105. A Nevada bettor put $3,000 on Rams +325 in late October for a total potential payout of $12,750.
One other sizable division wager that was placed back in March was on the Bills. At 10-3, Buffalo has a two-game lead over the Dolphins in the AFC East with three games left to play. The Bills originally had the second-lowest odds to win the division at +350, trailing the Patriots at -300. That didn’t deter one Nevada bettor, who placed $5,000 on Bills +350 for a total potential payout of $22,000.
