2018 AFC East Betting Preview

When the same NFL team wins its division nine seasons in a row as part of a run that includes 14 division titles over a course of 15 years, it is pretty safe to assume that it will be favored to win again heading into a new regular season.

VietBet’s 2018 NFL Future Betting Odds
Under the guidance of Bill Belichick as head coach with future Hall of Fame quarterback Tom Brady running the offense, the New England Patriots have been the most dominant franchise in the NFL since the turn of the century. This duo remains in place this season with the Patriots listed as prohibitive -600 favorites to win the AFC East again in 2018. VietBet has also listed New England as a +300 favorite to win the AFC and as a +700 favorite to win Super Bowl LIII.

It makes no sense to bet against the Patriots winning the division at those odds and there is little value in the risk/reward in a bet that they will win the AFC East in 2018. The main value on the board when it comes to betting this division as a whole is on VietBet’s posted betting lines for each team’s projected win total in the regular season.

Where Can I Bet The 2018 AFC East NFL Games Online?

New England’s win total this season has been set at 11 with betting odds favoring the OVER at -155. Given that this team has won at least 12 games in each of its last eight seasons, I would go with the risk/reward on the OVER in that bet.

The Miami Dolphins have the second-best odds to win the AFC East at +800 and their projected win total is set at 6.5. The betting odds do favor the OVER at -130 and that would be the way to go in my book. Miami took a step backwards last season to 6-10, following a 10-win season and trip to the playoffs in 2016. There is enough talent on this team to climb back to eight or nine wins this season.

The third-favorite to win this division is the Buffalo Bills at +1200 with a projected win total of 6.5. The Bills overachieved last season with a 9-7 record and its first trip to the playoffs since 1999. Off-field issues surrounding running back LeSean McCoy cloud the situation as do questions at the quarterback position to enhance a play on the UNDER 6.5 wins at -220.

The New York Jets embark on a major rebuilding process at +1400 odds to win the division. After going 5-11 in each of the last two seasons, I would go with the UNDER at -140 for their 2018 win projection of six games.
