Chicago Bears

Unfortunately, the Bears had to let go of WR Brandon Marshall during the off-season who moved to the Jets. Instead, they were able to select the second best receiver in this year’s draft, Kevin White from West Virginia. He will be playing alongside Alshon Jeffery and new acquired Eddie Royal.  Defensively, they were able to add several major acquisitions including OLB Pernell McPhee, ILB Mason Foster and FS Antrel Rolle. Odds maker have set the bears as the divisional underdogs. They are the biggest risk of the NFC North, so stay away from them.

Oddmakers at Bodog & Bovada currently list the Chicago Bears as:
Odds to win the 2015-16 NFC North: +1200
Odds to win the 2015-16 NFC Conference: 28/1
Odds to win the 2016 Superbowl : 50/1

Detroit Lions

The Lions also lost a potential player inDT Ndamukong Suh. That may have brought their chances to winning a superbowl or the division even lower. However, the lions were able to replace Suh with DT Haloti Ngata. Lions had the #1 rush defense in the entire league last season. Don’t expect a similar outcome this year. On the offensive side, they were able to select one of the best RB of the draft, Ameer Abdullah from Nebraska. He will be playing behind Joique Bell who is more of a power back (whereas Abdullah is more elusive). Considering the divisional caliber, oddsmakers think that the Lions are a +600 underdog. Personally, +600 is a good bet considering the Lions capabilities. Take the high risk, to get a better reward

Oddmakers at Bodog & Bovada currently list the Detroit Lions as:
Odds to win the 2015-16 NFC North: +600
Odds to win the 2015-16 NFC Conference: 22/1
Odds to win the 2016 Superbowl : 40/1

Green Bay Packers

Oddsmakers have listed the Packers as a heavy favorite this season to win it all; they are the top favorite to win the Superbowl, Conference and NFC North. Green Bay’s roster did not change much during the off-season. Last season, Aaron Rodgers was the years MVP. Considering the level of difficulty in the division, this is an unpredictable division, especially with Peterson back with the Vikings. Also, something else to consider, both the Vikings and the Lions have a solid defense. One flaw that is obvious from Rodgers is that he is not good in passing the ball against good defenses. If he can’t pass the ball, he can’t score. That’s my major concern for the Packers and therefore making a -300 favorite so low for such a high risk. But in light of all this, Rodgers and the Packers are hungry for another ring after the loss they suffered against the Seattle Seahawks at the NFC Championship. For that reason, they will take the division.

Oddmakers at Bodog & Bovada currently list the Green Bay Packers as:
Odds to win the 2015-16 NFC North: -300
Odds to win the 2015-16 NFC Conference: 3/1
Odds to win the 2016 Superbowl : 5/1

Minnesota Vikings

After numerous reports and rumours, Adrien Peterson will stay a Viking. Minnesota also added WR Mike Wallace to the roster. Exciting to see what the Vikings will bring to the field this season on the offensive side. Defensively, head coach Mike Zimmer did a fantastic job last season. They were also able to draft CB Trae Waynes from Michigan State and MLB Erin Kendricks for their defensive mix. Waynes was considered the best corner in this years draft. Kendricks will be playing with SLB Anthony Barr; Both Barr and Kendricks played together in college at UCLA.  Looking at their roster, I like the Vikings this year. I wouldn’t be surprised to see them sneak into the wild card round this year.   

Oddmakers at Bodog & Bovada currently list the Minnesota Vikings as:
Odds to win the 2015-16 NFC North: +600
Odds to win the 2015-16 NFC Conference: 18/1
Odds to win the 2016 Superbowl : 33/1
