NFL Division Betting
Since the Houston Texans joined the National Football League in 2002, and the league realigned into eight four-team NFL divisions, no more than six teams have repeated as division champions in the same season, a streak that continued in 2020 with only three successful defenses of division championships.
With NFL division betting at BetMGM, you can bet which of last year’s division champions will repeat – and who will unseat them – in 2021.
NFL Odds to Win the Division
With their loss to the Dallas Cowboys in Week 16 of the 2020 season, the Philadelphia Eagles were eliminated from contention for the NFC East title. As a result, the NFC East didn’t have a repeat champion for the 16th straight season. Not since the Eagles won three consecutive post-realignment division championships from 2002-04 has an NFC East team repeated as division champions.
The San Francisco 49ers joined the Eagles in failing to repeat as division champions, as did the Baltimore Ravens, New England Patriots, and Texans.
This year, you can bet on a 17th straight season without a repeat champion for the NFC East or bet the Washington Football Team ends the streak with a second straight title.
How to Bet on NFL Division Winners
NFL divisional betting is easy regardless of your football expertise and sports betting experience.
From the NFL betting or football betting page, you can browse updated division odds for all eight divisions. And with a variety of division betting options, you’re not limited to selecting each division winner.
You can, for example, bet on the order of finish for the NFC West, which team will finish in third place, or which two teams will finish in first and second place in either order.
Throughout the season, with NFL betting and live sports betting, you can hedge against your preseason bets, increase your position, or place new bets on other teams!
