The 2020 NFL season is just around the corner. The league’s 32 teams have started charting their route to the 202 Super Bowl which will be held at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami. The oddsmakers have already released the odds on which teams are favored to win the next Super Bowl. Likewise, the odds on which teams will win their respective divisions have also been released.

In the NFC East and West, the usual suspects are on top of the most recent odds board. Here are the favorites to win the 2020 NFC East and West divisions of the NFL. Odds were taken from Titanbet as of 6/25/19:

Football 2020 NFC East Division Winner

  • Philadelphia Eagles +110
  • Dallas Cowboys +140
  • Washington Redskins +700
  • New York Giants +1200

The Philadelphia Eagles have been tipped as the NFL betting favorites to win the NFC East division during the upcoming season. One issue that clouded the Eagles last season was the quarterback dilemma between former Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles and original starting QB Carson Wentz. It can be recalled the Foles took over Wentz’s 11-2 start in 2017 after the latter got hurt and Foles led the Eagles to an incredible Super Bowl run. But with Foles departing in free agency, Wentz is now the crystal clear choice for QB and he may be the right one. Wentz’s QB rating has been more than 100 in the last two seasons and the offense has more potential with him than Foles.

The Dallas Cowboys won the NFC East division title last season. With their offensive nucleus of Dak Prescott, Ezekiel Elliott and Amari Cooper will be joined by Jason Witten who comes out of a short retirement and free agent wideout Randall Cobb. Witten’s leadership, ability to block and keep the chain moving will make him a key player in taking the Dallas offense deep in the playoffs. The Cowboys have not won the Super Bowl since 1996 when they won three Lombardi trophies during a four-year span.

If you look at the odds, it’s saying this is a two-team race and that may be correct. Washington’s Alex Smith is still out after a gruesome injury and that puts the Redskins’ hopes in limbo. Meanwhile, the Giants are well, the Giants. For as long as Eli Manning is there, I don’t think New York is going to contend this season.

The Eagles play an easy schedule to begin the 2019-20 the season so I don’t think they’ll last long at +110. I think this is the value play for them and given that they will face Washington Atlanta and Detroit, Philly could get expensive in a hurry. I have great belief that they will win this division next season. Prediction: Philadelphia Eagles

Football 2020 NFC West Division Winner

  • Los Angeles Rams -160
  • Seattle Seahawks +320
  • San Francisco 49ers +450
  • Arizona Cardinals +2000

The Rams are the NFL betting favorites to win the NFC West title this coming season. Los Angeles won this division the last two years and made a trip to the Super Bowl last season. In 2018, the Rams finished three games ahead of their closest rivals- the Seattle Seahawks who were at 10-6. On the other hand, the 49ers and Cardinals had losing seasons at 4-12 and 3-13, respectively.

There have been no major losses so far for the Rams and with the addition of linebacker Clay Matthews and safety Eric Weddle, they have even gotten better, at least on paper. The major concern for Los Angeles is Todd Gurley’s health. It can be recalled that Gurley was slowed down by a knee injury late in the season. But if Gurley returns to his old form and Jared Goff continues to improve, there’s no reason why the Rams will win a third straight NFC West division title.

The Seahawks completed a surprise season by clinching a wild-card berth and they should be considered as the Rams’ main threat in the NFC West. Seattle lost to the Rams twice during the regular season but not after taking them down the wire. It’s interesting to note that the Seahawks’ two games against the Rams next season will be on prime time and Seattle has won its last four prime time games and are 23-5-1 in prime time games since head coach Pete Carroll took over in 2010. That said, they should give L.A. a tough task in both games.

As for the 49ers and Cardinals, I don’t think they are going to contend for the division title this year. San Francisco is expected to have a healthy Jimmy G. back but it remains to be seen how fast he can get back to his old form. But even with him back, don’t forget the Niners haven’t hit .500 in the last five seasons. As for Arizona, drafting Kyler Murray may be the start of something big but I’m not sure if they are going to be a winning team this year. Arizona has a new coach and a new quarterback. I think it’s going to take some time unless Murray exceeds the already high expectations. Prediction: Los Angeles Rams
