Has the NFC ever been more wide open than it is in 2017? There are probably legitimately nine or 10 teams who are entering this season with a legitimate belief they could go to the Super Bowl out of this conference, and that's making the odds to win the NFC incredibly tight from top to nearly bottom.
Dallas Cowboys +500 – The Cowboys were about as good as we could have ever expected them to be in 2016. Ezekiel Elliott and Dak Prescott really need to avoid sophomore slumps to keep Dallas at the top of the NFC.
Green Bay Packers +575 – The talent around Aaron Rodgers probably isn't primo, but we're still talking about one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL.
Atlanta Falcons +600 – If you're a believer in the curse that comes with losing the Super Bowl, you're going to want to stay far away from the Falcons, especially at a price of 6 to 1 to win the NFC.
Seattle Seahawks +600 – The Seahawks feel overstated at 6 to 1 to win the NFC, but who is stopping them from winning the NFC West this year?
New York Giants +1000 – Eli Manning is at the end of the line, and the Giants know it. As an organization, they've made plenty of moves on the offensive side of the ball to help Eli win and win right now. This is a dangerous team if it gets into the second season.
Carolina Panthers +1200 – Maybe our favorite bet on the board. For as lucky as the Panthers got two years ago, they were probably just as unlucky in 2016. Cam Newton could be an MVP candidate once again this season in a wide open NFC South.
Minnesota Vikings +1200 – Trading for Sam Bradford last year kept the Vikes competitive. The whole season could have been lost after losing Teddy Bridgewater to a devastating knee injury.
Arizona Cardinals +1500 – This figures to be the last rodeo for Carson Palmer and Larry Fitzgerald as they attempt to make one more push at a Super Bowl before stepping aside and retiring.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers +2000 – When Jameis Winston takes that leap from a really good, young quarterback to a legitimate top 10 option under center, the Bucs are going to have a shot at the Super Bowl. Could that come as early as this year?
Philadelphia Eagles +2000 – Pretty much take the Bucs and replace the name "Jameis Winston" with the name "Carson Wentz," and you've got the Eagles.
Washington Redskins +2500 – If we assume that Kirk Cousins isn't getting tagged again and isn't reaching a long-term deal with the team, this is probably Washington's last season with a shot at relevance.
New Orleans Saints +2500 – The Saints still haven't figured out how to put a defense around Drew Brees.
Detroit Lions +3000 – It almost feels like the window of opportunity for Matt Stafford is just about closed. He worked so hard to make the Lions relevant again, but this team is nowhere near a Super Bowl.
Chicago Bears +6000 – We're all still trying to figure out why the Bears traded a trove of picks to move up and draft Mitch Trubisky at No. 2 overall.
Los Angeles Rams +7500 – Jared Goff is on the verge of being labeled a complete and utter bust less than 16 months after being the No. 1 pick in the NFL Draft.
San Francisco 49ers +15000 – This entire season for the Niners is all about getting Kyle Shanahan's system in place. The payoff for stinking again could be Kirk Cousins and a top five pick in next year's NFL Draft.
