The 2021 NFL Draft moves the needle for the league and fans of the game nearly as much as a regular-season contest does. It's highly anticipated every single year and this year was no different. That anticipation also can lead to a lot of reactions after the draft has commenced. Such as power rankings, draft grades, and betting odds NFL Futures like the Super Bowl.
Well, apparently the betting word didn't care for the Dallas Cowboys draft haul. In the span of a couple of months, they've seen their odds dip from +3000 back on February 10th to +3300 today via Bet Online.
As of March 28th, they had risen as high as +2800 per Bet Online, but have come back to earth a little.
Dallas still remains the favorite to win the NFC East and are far and away the team from the division with the best odds to win the Super Bowl.
Odds to Win the NFC East
- Dallas Cowboys +120
- Washington Football Team +225
- New York Giants +425
- Philadelphia Eagles +550
A defensive heavy draft isn't likely to move the needle much in the eyes of the bettors, but it's surprising considering how much help the Dallas Cowboys needed on the defensive side of the football. Still, the team has a chance to win the NFC East and reach the playoffs for the first time since 2018.
Hopefully, this is the year they break through the glass ceiling and make their way to the Super Bowl. It's been 25 long years and counting.
