The Los Angeles Rams captured their first Super Bowl title since they were based in St. Louis and known as the Greatest Show on Turf during the 1999 season. Yet, they are not the top choice of the oddsmakers this season and some believe there is notable value in a Rams Super Bowl futures ticket at tempting odds of +1100 according to FanDuel.
The team at the top of the preseason charts is the explosive Buffalo Bills at +650 led by Josh Allen and his dynamic assortment of pass-catching weapons. Tampa Bay and Kansas City trail closely behind at +750 and +950, respectively.

OddsTrader’s Betting Edge
• The Bills are, once again, the team to beat in the AFC East. Buffalo racked up the greatest point differential (+194) in the entire league last season.
• Quaterbacks matter in the NFL. The Cleveland Browns are the oddsmakers’ choice to win the AFC North with the acquisition of Deshaun Watson.
• The Tennessee Titans better hope their first-round pick, Treylon Burks, is comparable to A.J Brown, whom they traded to Philadelphia.
• The AFC West has Patrick Mahomes, Russell Wilson, Justin Herbert, and Derek Carr playing for divisional supremacy.
• The New Orleans Saints are an intriguing proposition at +500 as they will have a healthy Jameis Winston under center.

AFC Divisional Preview
2022-2023 AFC East Division Winner
|New England Patriots||+400|
|New York Jets||+2000|
The AFC East is no longer the Patriots for the taking. The Bills have usurped the perennial AFC East champs from New England and are once again the team to beat, having racked up the greatest point differential (+194) in the entire league last season.
Speaking of the Patriots, their draft can euphemistically be described as Belichickian but most would deem it bizarre. Essentially, their young quarterback, Mac Jones, needed weapons but instead, the Pats reached, and we do mean reached, for a D 1-AA guard from Chattanooga aptly named Strange in the first round.
They then selected a speed merchant in Baylor’s Tyquan Thornton who can best be described as a human dragster, he only goes one way. Thornton was tops in the 40, running a 4.24, but among the worst in the cone and shuttle drills at the NFL Combine.
As for the Dolphins, they traded for Tyreek Hill and now have a devastating one-two combination with him and Jaylen Waddle. But whether Tua Tagovailoa can elevate his game and take the next step remains to be seen. Weapons can be deadly but only if you know how to use them.
As for the Jets, there is a reason why they are +2000 to win the division. But, according to the experts, they used their three first-round picks wisely, so there’s always next year.
2022-2023 AFC North Division Winner
If you have ever wondered how important a quarterback is in the NFL, consider the ascension of the Browns as the oddsmakers’ choice to win the AFC North with the acquisition of Deshaun Watson. However, if Watson faces a suspension for the offseason allegations that saw him sit all of last season, this could be a dicey bet.
The Ravens picked the best safety in the draft when they selected 6’4” Kyle Hamilton out of Notre Dame. Baltimore’s defense will be tough this season but if Lamar Jackson does not rekindle the MVP magic of his sophomore NFL season, then a division title in a tough-as-nails conference like the AFC North could be a reach.
The Bengals were Super Bowl runners-up, yet, are somehow relegated to the third choice in a division of four. The Cats revamped their offensive line in the offseason and picked up a pair of excellent defensive backs in the first two rounds of the draft. If Joe Burrow remains Joe Cool, then this is one team with solid value to win the North and, at +2200, an even better value to win it all.
Kenny Pickett is the heir apparent to Big Ben in Pittsburgh but this is not the year to be a Steelers fan. This is a rebuild that will mature only as quickly as Pickett does.
2022-2023 AFC South Division Winner
We saw what an elite veteran quarterback did for the Rams last year and Colts fans are hoping for the same with the arrival of Matt Ryan. Indianapolis now has a top-tier passer to complement a devastating rusher in Jonathan Taylor. The Colts are hoping their second-round pick from Cincinnati, wide receiver Alec Pierce will develop quickly so Michael Pittman can roam free.
The Titans better hope their first-round pick, Treylon Burks, is comparable to the stellar wideout they traded to Philadelphia. A.J. Brown may be gone but if Burks busts, he won’t be soon forgotten in the Music City.
The Jaguars and Texans will be battling to stay out of the AFC South basement. Trevor Lawrence got a pass last year but he will need to show improvement, otherwise, the boo birds in Jagtown will be making their presence known. As for the Texans, they could very likely go 0-6 in their division and no one would be shocked.
2022-2023 AFC West Division Winner
|Kansas City Chiefs||+155|
|Los Angeles Chargers||+240|
|Las Vegas Raiders||+700|
The AFC West has an embarrassment of riches at quarterback. Consider Patrick Mahomes, Russell Wilson, Justin Herbert, and Derek Carr will duel in what should be a series of explosive divisional air shows all season long.
This is a true dog fight and little separating the top three teams. Even the Raiders could make noise considering they added Davante Adams while the Chiefs lost Tyreek Hill. These teams must battle each other a total of six times apiece and that could have a serious impact on their winning percentages.
Could it be that the best division in football sends only one team to the postseason?
NFC Divisional Preview
2022-2023 NFC East Division Winner
|New York Giants||+650|
The Cowboys won the NFC East going away last season and added a big body up front, Tyler Smith (1-24, Tulsa), in the draft to protect Dak Prescott. They are still the oddsmakers’ choice to win the division but they could get competition from an improving Eagles squad.
Speaking of which, Jalen Hurts is the man under center for the Eagles and now he has A.J. Brown opposite DeVonta Smith to make magic at The Linc this season. If he stumbles, the charismatic Gardner Minshew will take the reins of the offense.
Carson Wentz will be pulling the trigger for the newly named Washington Commanders and he has the talented Terry McLaurin coupled with first-round speed burner, Jahan Dotson of Penn State, to resurrect his career.
Meanwhile, the Giants are praying Daniel Jones turns the corner and Saquon Barkley remains healthy. In the draft, New York got a chaos-maker in defensive end, Kayvon Thibodeaux, and selected a mammoth tackle, Alabama’s Evan Neal, as their pair of top 10 first-rounders. If Jones makes the jump, Big Blue could surprise.
2022-2023 NFC North Division Winner
|Green Bay Packers||-180|
The Packers rolled out the Brink’s truck for Aaron Rodgers and then shuttled his primary weapon, Davante Adams, to the Raiders for draft picks. Rodgers will be 39 in December and if Father Time catches up, the Packers will quickly fall down.
The Vikings are the only team in the division that can make a run for the top spot in the division and drafted defensively heavy this year. They also have a big arm in Kirk Cousins to accommodate a pair of dynamic receivers in Adam Thielen and Justin Jefferson while Dalvin Cook, when healthy, is one of the league’s most devastating runners.
The Bears and Lions will be doormats, yet again, this season but the Lions have what should be a dominant force on defense for years to come in Michigan’s Aidan Hutchinson, the top pick in the 2022 NFL Draft.
2022-2023 NFC South Division Winner
|Tampa Bay Buccaneers||-320|
|New Orleans Saints||+500|
The Buccaneers are prohibitive favorites to win the NFC South but if Tom Brady gets injured or suddenly succumbs to the laws of physics then laying -320 will be impossible to defend. However, if Tom Brady plays like Tom Brady, then Tampa Bay will win this one going away, as the rest of the division is simply not equipped to keep pace with the high-flying Bucs.
Yet, New Orleans is an intriguing proposition at +500 as they will have a healthy Jameis Winston under center, and one who showed tremendous growth before getting injured midway through last season.
The Saints got Winston a top-notch receiver when they drafted Ohio State’s Chris Olave at No. 11 overall and then selected a 6’7” mauler in Trevor Penning at No. 19 to act as Winston’s personal bodyguard for years to come.
As for the Panthers and Falcons, Christian McCaffrey and Kyle Pitts are a few reasons to watch.
2022-2023 NFC West Division Winner
|Los Angeles Rams||+140|
|San Francisco 49ers||+185|
The Rams lost Robert Woods but they gained Allen Robinson and LA should be in fine shape to defend their Super Bowl title. Cam Akers will be in the backfield after missing virtually the entire 2021 regular season and, unlike last year, Matthew Stafford will be fully acquainted with his teammates when September rolls around.
The 49ers have committed to second-year quarterback, Trey Lance, and are trying to find a dance partner to take Jimmy Garoppolo and his $25 million salary. Deebo Samuel is looking to play anywhere but San Francisco next year which doesn’t make the Niners’ outlook all that rosy.
The Cardinals will be without DeAndre Hopkins for six games and will have to rely on Kyler Murray to get the job done. But one team that wishes they had a quarterback like Murray is the Seattle Seahawks after they parted ways with Russell Wilson. Drew Lock has massive shoes to fill but he will have Charles Cross, the No. 9 overall pick, protecting his blindside this year.
