We're a long way till the start of the NFL regular season. It's 207 days until the Thursday Night Football game that will kick off the regular season in 2021. However, it's not too early to begin looking to next season and Bet Online has released their NFL Futures for the divisional races.
Just after the Super Bowl, they gave us the Super Bowl LVI betting lines that saw the Cowboys with the 15th best odds to win the Super Bowl. Though the outlook isn't so rosy when it comes to ending their 25 year Super Bowl Championship drought, the oddsmakers are a little more optimistic about the Cowboys' chances of winning the NFC East.
Bet Online has the Cowboys at -105 favorites to bounce back from their 6-10 2020 season and win the NFC East crown.
Example. If you place a $100 bet on the Cowboys at -105, you'll win $95 dollars.
It is a bit surprising when you consider that there are still some unknowns regarding Dak Prescott's health or contract situation. Also given the massive construction project the Cowboys must undertake to rebuild the defense and improve it.
The rest of the NFC East is as follows.
- Philadelphia Eagles at +310
- Washington Football Team at +450
- New York Giants at +500
A lot has to go right for the Cowboys this year. They have a big offseason ahead of them with needs at every level of the defense. They need to get some injury good luck along the offensive line this year and hope their quarterback is back and ready to go come minicamps.
Depending on what happens at the quarterback position, the Washington Football Team has the odds I like the best here. They're bringing back much of their offense and defense. If they're able to figure out the quarterback position for 2021, they have a great chance to repeat as division champions in 2021.
