2018 NFL Betting Odds For The NFC East

That the defending Super Bowl champions, Philadelphia Eagles, are in the NFC East bodes well for this division. The NFL futures odds have the Eagles as the favorites to crown themselves as the kings of the East once more, but can the Cowboys, Giants, or Redskins give them a run for their money? Let’s see…

Early NFC East Betting Lines & Predictions

Who’s The Favorite?

At -160, the Eagles are the solid favorite to win the NFC East and it would be hard to argue against this because they clearly have the best team in the division.

After winning Super Bowl LII and toppling the mighty Patriots’ reign by a score of 41-33 and not really losing a lot of defensive or offensive players for this year’s campaign, it’s hard to see them not winning the division. However, the Eagles have one of the toughest schedules in the league ahead of them and the fact they have to face three NFC East rivals that have all improved has certainly upped the ante for Philadelphia.

Also, there are big questions on QB Carson Wentz’ health heading into the season which are somewhat lessened by the presence of Nick Foles.

What About The Dallas Cowboys?

Even if the Boys will be missing Dez Bryant and Jason Witten, the offense is still packed full of talent with players of the likes of Ezekiel Elliot (who hopefully won’t have to sit out games this year) and, of course, QB Dak Prescott.

Dallas also snatched linebacker Leighton Vander Esch in the first round of the NFL Draft, who will be joining Demarcus Lawrence, David Irving, and Taco Charlton to present a formidable pass rush that will undoubtedly have opponents worried.

And The New York Giants?

The Giants have also shored up on both sides of the ball; Odell Beckham is one of the best receivers in all of football, while rookie Saquon Barkley and second-year tight end Evan Engram are both explosive players who could really wreak havoc amongst defenders. The offensive line could be somewhat weak though, but Nate Solder and Will Hernandez are perfectly capable of keeping the pressure off of Eli Manning.

The Cowboys’ defense is downright scary with a veritable small army of Pro-Bowlers in the ranks, starting with safety Landon Collins and continuing with DT Damon Harrison. Let’s not forget the Giants also picked up linebacker Alec Ogletree who will close down whatever holes down the middle that the Giants had as a vulnerability last year.

Lastly, what’s up with the Washington Redskins?

The Redskins traded for former Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith, who last year threw for over 4,000 yards and he could arguably be much better than Kirk Cousins, but I still have some doubts. The offensive line also added a key piece in rookie running back Derrius Guice, who could greatly improve the running game.

Washington also shored up the defense with players such as Johnathan Allen and Daron Payne, both of whom were great at stopping the run and pestering the quarterback. By the way, you can’t forget about All-Pro cornerback Josh Norman, who is also top notch. Even still, I don’t really see the Redskins bagging the NFC East title given how competitive this division is.
