2018 NFC West Betting Preview

The recent demise of Seattle and Arizona in the NFC West has paved the way for a pair of California teams to battle it out for the division title in 2018 according to the recently updated NFL futures at BetAnySports. The Los Angeles Rams broke through last season with an 11-win campaign and much of the hype heading into this year revolves around the new-look San Francisco 49ers.

The Rams’ last division title before its climb to the top of the NFC West in 2017 was in 2003. However, all the right pieces are in place for a successful defense of that title as -140 favorites with BetAnySports. Jared Goff is ready to pick up where he left off as one of the most exciting young quarterbacks in the league. The one issue facing Los Angeles this preseason is the current holdout of defensive standout Aaron Donald that is threatening to carry into the regular season.

San Francisco went from being a Super Bowl contender in 2013 to a dismal 2-14 record just three years later. Optimism is running high as +250 second-favorites that the 49ers can compete for a division title this season with Jimmy Garoppolo leading the offense at quarterback. He led the team on a five-game winning streak to close out last season at 6-10. Head coach Kyle Shanahan also addressed some concerns on offense by selecting tackle Mike McGlinchey as the ninth overall pick in the first round of the draft followed by wide receiver Dante Pettis early in the second.

The Seahawks have been sliding in the wrong direction after their back-to-back trips to the Super Bowl in 2013/2014. Mass defections on defense and little offensive support at the skill positions for Pro Bowl quarterback Russell Wilson led to a 9-7 record last year. The futures odds point to a further slide in 2017 after Seattle missed the playoffs for the first time in six seasons win longer +500 betting odds to win the NFC West this year.

With veteran quarterback Sam Bradford battling rookie Josh Rosen for the starting role in Arizona, the Cardinals have been listed as +1200 odds to win their first division title since 2015. They went 13-3 that year before falling to seven wins the following season and an 8-8 mark in 2017. Steve Wilks has taken over the reins at head coach and he could be hard-pressed to get his team over its projected regular season win total of six games.
