NFC North Odds & Predictions

July 7, 2019

The most competitive division in the NFL in 2019 could very well be the NFC North, where three teams are listed with odds of about 2-1 to win the division. The Chicago Bears are a slight favorite at BetDSI at odds of +170, while the Green Bay Packers are a close second choice at +190, and the Minnesota Vikings are +210. The Detroit Lions are the longshot at odds of +1200. Let’s look at the division and NFC North predictions.

Odds to Win NFC North
Chicago Bears +170
Green Bay Packers +190
Minnesota Vikings +210
Detroit Lions +1200

Chicago Bears

The Bears are the defending champions, as they are coming off a 12-4 season, but it may not be as easy in 2019 for Chicago. The Bears face a much tougher schedule this season and they will not go under the radar as they did a year ago. The team added Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, while they lost Adrian Amos and Jordan Howard. The Bears are counting on rookie David Montgomery to take on a lot of responsibility in the backfield with Howard gone. The Bears had 36 takeaways last season on defense and that number will be almost impossible to match this season. If the Bears are to win the division they will need quarterback Mitch Trubisky to take another step forward.

Green Bay Packers

The Packers will look different this season with a new head coach in Matt LaFleur. How well he meshes with Aaron Rodgers will go a long way toward deciding how well Green Bay does in 2019. The defense might be improved with the addition of Amos from Chicago and rookie defensive end Rashan Gary. The Packers have to hope that Rodgers can stay healthy, as he has been dealing with injuries the past two seasons. Green Bay will be featured five times this season in prime time, with two Monday night games, one Sunday night game and two Thursday games.

Minnesota Vikings

The Vikings were a major disappointing a year ago, especially on the offensive line. They added Garrett Bradbury in the draft and they are hoping he is a huge help this season. The Vikings need to protect Kirk Cousins and give him time to get the ball to his playmakers. The Minnesota defense was solid last season and they got Anthony Barr back from the Jets. The pressure is on Cousins to deliver this season, and with an improved offensive line, he will have no excuses.

Detroit Lions

The Lions are the longshot in the division, but they are not a hopeless cause. They have a decent defense and if they can get more production on offense they could be a surprise team. They took tight end T.J. Hockenson in the first round of the NFL Draft and he is expected to have a big impact this season, as he gives Matthew Stafford a red-zone threat. The Lions will also be looking to run the ball at lot more this season under new coordinator Darrell Bevell. The concern with the Lions is that Matt Patricia didn’t look like a head coach who knew what he was doing a year ago. The Lions could be overlooked in 2019, but it is hard to risk money on a team coached by Patricia.

NFC North Predictions

The Bears are the favorite, but it will be almost impossible for their defense to be as good as it was a year ago, especially since they lost defensive coordinator Vic Fangio to Denver. Chicago faces a much tougher schedule than they had a year ago and they will have a target on their back. The Packers still have Rodgers, but he is no longer the best quarterback in the NFL and we don’t yet know how LaFleur will do as a head coach. Perhaps everything will work out and Green Bay will win the division, but we think there is more value on the Vikings at +210. Minnesota has a lot of talent on both sides of the ball and this is a make or break year for Mike Zimmer and Kirk Cousins. We’ll take the Vikings to win the NFC North this season.
