The Westgate SuperBook released their 2017-18 NFL Division odds, and seven of last year’s division winners are favored to repeat this year. The lone exception? The Oakland Raiders. The Black Hole finished tied at 12-4 with Kansas City, but got swept by their AFC West rival in the regular season. Oakland is a 9/5 favorite to capture the division this season.
Just getting into the NFL playoffs might seem enough to the average fan but for NFL franchises winning their division is the top variable to postseason success, wins, if you will. NFL clubs that earn their division title are guaranteed at least one home playoff game which turns into a 67 percent probability of winning and advancing in the January and February National Football League tournament.
