Read about NFL 2022 Prediction and AFC Divisional Winners Odds
The 103rd season of the National Football League (NFL) is set to kickstart on 8 September 2022 with the Los Angeles Rams, the defending Super Bowl LVI champions taking on the Buffalo Bills in the season opener. Like every year, the craze and anticipation among the fans for the mega-event have already begun.
NFL has been a highly distinguished competition where 32 teams participate, divided equally between the American Football Conference (AFC) and National Football Conference (NFC). As teams prepare for another exciting season, let’s have a look at the predictions, odds, and top contenders to win the AFC division.
NFL 2022 Prediction: Buffalo Bills to win the AFC East (Odds -180)
As per FanDuel, the odds for the Buffalo Bills winning the AFC East stands at -180.
The Buffalo Bills are the favorites to win the AFC East for the third consecutive year. They were brilliant in the last season as they finished at 11-6 and got the #3 seed in the playoffs. The Bills have made significant improvements in their defense in the offseason. Their offense is already one of the best in the NFL with the likes of Josh Allen and Stefon Diggs.
AFC Divisional Winners Odds: Team Leaders in 2021 (Still Active in Buffalo Bills): Josh Allen (QB)- 4,407 Passing Yards, Devin Singletary (RB)- 870 Rushing Yards, Stefon Diggs (WR)- 1,225 Receiving Yards, Tremaine Edmunds (LB)- 108 Tackles, Micah Hyde (S)- 5 Interceptions.
NFL 2022 Prediction: Kansas City Chiefs to win the AFC West (Odds +175)
As per DraftKings, the odds for the Kansas City Chiefs winning the AFC West stands at +175.
It is looking like a cakewalk for the Kansas City Chiefs again to win the AFC West. They comfortably won the group last season which was their sixth consecutive AFC West title. The Chiefs finished their regular season at 12-6. Very few will argue that will miss their target this time.
AFC Divisional Winners Odds: Team Leaders in 2021 (Still Active in KC Chiefs): Patrick Mahomes (QB)- 4,839 Passing Yards, Clyde Edwards-Helaire (RB)- 517 Rushing Yards, Travis Kelce (WR)- 1,125 Receiving Yards, Nick Bolton (LB)- 112 Tackles, L’Jarius Sneed (CB)- 2 Interceptions.
NFL 2022 Prediction: Baltimore Ravens to win the AFC North (Odds +210)
As per DraftKings, the odds for the Baltimore Ravens winning the AFC North stands at +210.
This might go down as the most interesting prediction of the AFC. The Baltimore Ravens started their last season on a strong note. However, regular injuries in the final half of the campaign ruined their chances as they faced 6 consecutive losses at the most crucial stage of the season. The Ravens had a disappointing end to their season at 8-9 in the last position of their group. Nevertheless, they are a strong side and a fully healthy squad are favorites to secure the top spot and clinch the AFC North.
AFC Divisional Winners Odds: Team Leaders in 2021 (Still Active in Baltimore Ravens): Lamar Jackson (QB)- 2,882 Passing Yards, 767 Rushing Yards, Mark Andrews (TE)- 1,361 Receiving Yards, Patrick Queen (LB)- 98 Tackles, Chuck Clark (S)- 2 Interceptions.
NFL 2022 Prediction: Indianapolis Colts to win the AFC South (Odds -105)
As per FanDuel, the odds for the Indianapolis Colts winning the AFC South stands at -105.
The Indianapolis Colts couldn’t improve their record in the last season. But they are expected to have an impressive campaign this time. The Colts finished at 9-8 in the regular season behind the Titans in the AFC South. They got eliminated in the final week of the postseason. The addition of Matt Ryan has given the offense a major boost ahead of the next season.
Team Leaders in 2021 (Still Active in Indianapolis Colts): Jonathan Taylor (RB)- 1,811 Rushing Yards, Michael Pittman Jr. (WR)- 1,082 Receiving Yards, Bobby Okereke (LB)- 132 Tackles, Kenny Moore II (CB)- 4 Interceptions.
