NFL Season Preview Part Two Team Futures Bets – NFC East And AFC East

This is the second in a four-part series of articles, where we preview the forthcoming NFL Season and take a look at some of the more enticing futures market betting available with BetRivers PA on the 32 teams competing in the NFL.

We build on our look last week at the AFC and NFC North divisions. 

With the start date of the 9th September, the new 17-game season will be one additional game for most teams and all the moves in Free Agency and following the NFL Draft have seen teams make plenty of changes to their rosters.

Let’s continue our look at the teams prospects now with the NFC and AFC East divisions.

NFC East – Team Futures Bets

  • Washington Football Team (Conference Winners)

    [email protected] — from the Washington Football Team vs. Los Angeles Rams at FedEx Field in Landover, Maryland. October 11, 2020 (All-Pro Reels Photography) – CC.BY.2.0

Last Season – 7-9

Key Additions – Ryan Fitzpatrick (QB), Willoam Jackson III (CB), Curtis Samuel (WR), Adam Humphries (WR), Jamin Davis (ILB), Samuel Cosmi (OT), Benjamin St-Juste (CB), Dyami Brown (WR), John Bates (TE), Darrick Forrest (S), Bobby McCain (S), Ricky Seals-Jones (TE), David Mayo (LB), Charles Leno (OT), Darryl Roberts (CB)

Key Losses – Alex Smith (QB), Bryce Love (RB), Geron Christian Sr. (OT), Morgan Moses (OT), Jeremy Sprinkle (TE), Ryan Kerrigan (DE), Ryan Anderson (DE),  Thomas Davis (LB), Kevin Pierre-Louis (LB), Ronald Darby (CB), Fabian Moreau (CB)

Divisional Odds – +260

Super Bowl Odds – +5000

Our BetRivers Specials Tips

  • To Make The Playoffs? – Yes +149
  • Number of Games Won In the Regular Season – Over 8 -141

I expect the Washington Football Team to be an even stronger presence in the NFC East next season. Ryan Fitzpatrick is a solid signing and some clever moves on offence should beef them up in that area. With a top ranked defence, I think Washington will be the team to beat in this division.

  • New York Giants

Last Season – 6-10

Key Additions – Leonard Williams (DL), Kenny Golladay (WR), Adoree Jackson (CB), Kadarius Toney (WR), Azeez Ojulari (OLB), Aaron Robinson (CB), Elerson Smith (OLB), John Ross (WR), Zach Fulton (OG), Mike Glennon (QB), Devontae Booker (RB), Corey Clement (RB), Ryan Anderson (DE), Danny Shelton (DT), Kyle Rudolph (TE), Ifeadi Odenigbo (DE)

Key Losses – Colt McCoy (QB), Alex Tanney (QB), Wayne Gallman (RB), Dion Lewis (RB), Devonta Freeman (RB), Alfred Morris (RB), Golden Tate (WR), Spencer Pulley (C), Kevin Zeitler (OG), Cameron Fleming (OT), Austin Johnson (DT), Dalvin Tomlinson (DT), Kyler Fackrell (LB), David Mayo (LB), Jabaal Sheard (LB), Casey Kreiter (LS)

Divisional Odds – +350

Super Bowl Odds – +6600

Our BetRivers Specials Tips

  • To Make The Playoffs? – No -265
  • Number of Games Won In the Regular Season – Over 7 -143

I do like some of the moves that the Giants have made during the off-season, Kyle Rudolph was a smart pickup and Adoree Jackson offers a good option at corner. They will improve this season and I can see them picking up 7-8 wins, but I still feel they fall short of being playoff material.

  • Dallas Cowboys

Last Season – 6-10

Key Additions – Keanu Neal (S), Damontae Kazee (S), Tarell Basham (LB), Brent Urban (DE), Ty Nsekhe (OT), Jake McQuaide (LS), Micah Parsons (ILB), Kelvin Joseph (CB), Osa Odighizuwa (DT), Chauncey Golston (DE), Nahshon Wright (CB), Jabril Cox (ILB), Josh Ball (OT), Simi Fehoko (WR), Carlos Watkins (DE), Bryan Anger (P), Jeremy Sprinkle (TE)

Key Losses – Andy Dalton (QB), Jamize Olawale (FB), Blake Bell (TE), Joe Looney (C), Cameron Erving (OT), Aldon Smith (DE), Tyrone Crawford (DE), Antwaun Woods (DT), Sean Lee (LB), Chidobe Awuzie (CB), Xavier Woods (S), L.P. Ladouceur (LS)

Divisional Odds – +125

Super Bowl Odds – +2500

Our BetRivers Specials Tips

  • To Make The Playoffs? – No – +123
  • Number of Games Won In the Regular Season – Under 9.5 -130

The Cowboys seem to be the fashionable pick for many in the NFC East but I am not sold. Dak Prescott re-signing with the team was a big deal but I can’t see how they have upgraded their team so much that they are going to be a palpable threat in this division to Washington. I see them having a similar record to the Giants.

  • Philadelphia Eagles

Last Season – 4-11-1

Key Additions – Anthony Harris (S), Joe Flacco (QB), DeVonta Smith (WR), Landon Dickerson (C), Milton Williams (DT), Zech McPhearson (CB), Kenneth Gainwell (RB), Le’Raven Clark (OT), Ryan Kerrigan (DE), Kerryon Johnson (RB), Eric Wilson (LB), Anthony Harris (S), Andrew Adams (S), Nick Mullens (QB)

Key Losses – Nate Sudfeld (QB), Carson Wentz (QB), Corey Clement (RB), DeSean Jackson (WR), Alshon Jeffrey (WR), Vinny Curry (DE), Malik Jackson (DT), Nate Gerry (LB), Duke Riley (LB), Cre’Von LeBlanc (CB), Nickell Robey-Coleman (CB), Jalen Mills (S), Cam Johnson (P)

Divisional Odds -+500

Super Bowl Odds – +7000

Our BetRivers Specials Tips

  • To Make The Playoffs? – No -335
  • Number of Games Won In the Regular Season – Under 6.5 +123

In cap hell, the Eagles have had to make some big choices this off-season, Carson Wentz has gone and so have a few big earners on the team. DeVonta Smith should be a solid pick up in the draft, but this does look like being a long hard season for Eagles fans once again and I can’t see them winning more than five games.

AFC East – Team Futures Bets

  • Buffalo Bills (Divisional Champions)

Last Season – 13-3

Key Additions – Matt Milano (LB), Darryl Williams (OT), Jon Feliciano (G), Emmanuel Sanders (WR), Mitchell Trubisky (QB), Gregory Rousseau (DE), Carlos Basham Jr (DE), Spencer Brown (OT), Tommy Doyle (OT), Matt Breida (RB), Matt Haack (P), Bobby Hart (OT), Tyrell Adams (LB), Forrest Lamp (OG), Efe Obada (DE), Jacob Hollister (TE)

Key Losses – Matt Barkley (QB), T.J.Yeldon (RB), John Brown (WR), Andre Roberts (WR), Tyler Kroft (TE), Lee Smith (TE), Brian Winters (OG), Ty Nsekhe (OT), Trent Murphy (DE), Quinton Jefferson (DL), E.J.Gaines (CB), Josh Norman (CB), Dean Marlowe (S)

Divisional Odds – -150

Super Bowl Odds – +1200

Our BetRivers Specials Tips

  • To Make The Playoffs? – Yes -375
  • Number of Games Won In the Regular Season – Over 11 -110

The Bills were the star team in the AFC East last season and I am expecting another excellent season this year. To me, along with the Browns, Ravens ans Titans, I think they will be the Chiefs main threat in the AFC this year. I can see another 12-13 win season for Bills fans to enjoy this year.

  • Miami Dolphins (playoffs)

Last Season – 10-6

Key Additions – Will Fuller (WR), Jacoby Brissett (QB), Matt Skura (C), Benardrick McKinney (LB), Jaylen Waddle (WR), Jaelan Phillips (DE), Jevon Holland (S), Liam Eichenberg (OT), Gunter Long (TE), Adam Butler (DT), Jason McCourty (CB), D.J.Fluker (OG), Justin Coleman (CB), Malcolm Brown (RB)

Key Losses – Ryan Fitzpatrick (QB), Matt Breida (RB), Isaiah Ford (WR), Julien Davenport (OT), Ted Karras (C), Shaw Lawson (DE), Davon Godchaux (DT), Kamu Grugier-Hill (LB), Kyle Van Noy (LB), Bobby McCain (S), Matt Haack (P)

Divisional Odds – +325

Super Bowl Odds – +3000

Our BetRivers Specials Tips

  • To Make The Playoffs? – Yes +137
  • Number of Games Won In the Regular Season – Over 9 -150

I really like the moves that the Dolphins have made this off-season and despite losing Fitzpatrick, I think they have made some outstanding signings and I can see them really pushing the Bills hard in this division by picking up 10 or 11 wins.

  • New England Patriots

Last Season – 7-9

Key Additions – Jonnu Smith (TE), Hunter Henry (TE), Matthew Judon (OLB), Davon Godchaux (NT), Nelson Agholor (WR), Kendrick Bourne (WR), David Andrews (C), Mac Jones (QB), Christian Barmore (DT), Ronnie Perkins (DE), Rhamondre Stevenson (RB), Cameron McGrone (ILB), Ted Karras (C), Kyle Van Noy (LB), Henry Anderson (DL), Alex Redmond (OG), Marvin Hall (WR), Trent Brown (OT), Raekwon McMillan (LB), Jalen Mills (S), Montravius Adams (DL)

Key Losses – Rex Burkhead (RB), Damiere Byrd (WR), Julian Edelman (WR), Marqise Lee (WR), Ryan Izzo (TE), Marcus Cannon (OT), Joe Thuney (OG), Adam Butler (DT), Beau Allen (DL), Brandon Copeland (LB), Jason McCourty (CB), Patrick Chung (S)

Divisional Odds – +350

Super Bowl Odds – +3300

Our BetRivers Specials Tips

  • To Make The Playoffs? – No -177
  • Number of Games Won In the Regular Season – Under 9 +110

The Patriots have made a whole glut of changes to this squad of players and while some positions have seen significant upgrades, Tight End for example, some of the other signings are questionable and without Tom Brady to knit it all together, I see another below par performance from the Pats this season.

  • New York Jets

Last Season 2-14

Key Additions – Carl Lawson (DE), Corey Davis (WR), Sheldon Rankins (DT), Tevin Coleman (RB), Jarrad Davis (LB), Zach Wilson (QB), Alijah Vera-Tucker (OG), Elijah Moore (WR), Michael Carter (RB), Jamien Sherwood (S), Michael Carter II (S), Tyler Kroft (TE), Carl Lawson (DE), Keenan Cole (WR), Lamarcus Joyner (DB), Dan Feeney (C), Vinny Curry (DE), Justin Hardee (DB)

Key Losses – Sam Darnold (QB), Joe Flacco (QB), Frank Gore (RB), Josh Doctson (WR), Breshad Perriman (WR), Pat Elflein (OG), Josh Andrews (OL), Henry Anderson (DL), Tarell Basham (LB), Neville Hewitt (LB), Jordan Jenkins (LB), Arthur Maulet (CB), Brian Poole (CB), Bradley McDougald (S)

Divisional Odds – +2000

Super Bowl Odds – +10000

Our BetRivers Specials Tips

  • To Make The Playoffs? – No -715
  • Number of Games Won In the Regular Season – Under 6.5 -136

I have no doubt that the Jets will improve on last season’s dismal showing and I think around 6 wins will represent a very solid improvement for Robert Saleh in his first year and will offer the Jets something to build on going forward.

Check back on the site next weekend for the third part of our preview of the NFL season when we take a look at some of the best bets available for teams in the NFC and AFC West.
