Sunday, November 12th was a very interesting day for teams in the AFC North Division and the battle for the top spot just continues to heat up. Not only is first place in the AFC North Division up for grabs, but all four of these teams can still reach the postseason as well.
All four teams in the AFC North were involved in some late game drama in Week 10, and those results had a big impact on the standings. Here is a look at the future odds to win the AFC North, and the bet prediction that you should be making over at BetDSI.
A Look at the Standings
Through 10 weeks of the NFL season, all four of the teams in the AFC North are now sitting above the .500 mark. The Baltimore Ravens are leading the race with a record of 7-3, and they have already played four division games.
The Cleveland Browns went into Baltimore and stunned the Ravens with a last second field goal and also moved their own record to 6-3 on the year. Just like the Ravens, the Browns have gone 2-2 inside of the division this season.
The biggest surprise this season has been the Pittsburgh Steelers as they are sitting at 6-3 on the year as well. Pittsburgh held serve to beat the Green Bay Packers on Sunday for a big win, and this team is a perfect 2-0 against divisional opponents.
Cincinnati now has some serious work to do after losing to the Houston Texans on Sunday. The Bengals are still sitting at 5-4, but they are also 0-2 in the AFC North this season.
Here Are the Odds
The BetDSI betting odds to win the AFC North this season have been changing with every single week, and that is the case once again. While the Baltimore Ravens have been on the top for the last few weeks, other teams are starting to close the gap.
Baltimore is now a betting favorite to win this division at +125, and there is a decent gap between them and the Cleveland Browns at +225. Cleveland looked to be out of the race heading into Sunday, but things have shifted with that win in Baltimore.
The Cincinnati Bengals saw their odds drop in a big way with that Week 10 loss as they are now at +400 to win the AFC North. This certainly doesn’t eliminate them from contention, but it would be considered a shock for them to win the division title.
Finally, the Pittsburgh Steelers have odds set at +550 as it’s still hard to know what to make of this game. Pittsburgh is currently sitting at 6-3, but they are going to have to continue to prove that they can get the job done.
Ravens Get it Done
Heading into Week 10 of the NFL season, it looked as if the Cincinnati Bengals were getting ready to make a big move in the division race. Cincinnati had solid odds to win the AFC North and they were the right wager to make.
That’s no longer the case as Cincinnati is running out of time to make up a two-game difference with the Ravens. Baltimore did not look like themselves in Week 10, but they have clearly been the best overall team in this division.
You aren’t going to get a ton of value when betting on the Baltimore Ravens to win the AFC North, but that has to be the direction that you are going to want to go. Bet on the Ravens at +125 to figure this out and claim a division title.
