The NFC North is expected to be very competitive this season with the Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers battling for the title. The Vikings are a slight favorite to win the division in 2020 at odds of +140, while the Packers are a close second choice at odds of +177.
The Chicago Bears are not without a chance, as they are listed with odds of about 5-1 and the Detroit Lions are given some respect, as they have odds of just over 5-1. Let’s look at NFC North odds and each of the four teams.

Minnesota Vikings +140
The Vikings are listed as the favorites to win the NFC North, but Minnesota actually looks weaker than the team that finished second in the division a year ago. Minnesota lost wide receiver Stefon Diggs and the team was gutted on defense, losing Everson Griffen, Xavier Rhodes, Lindval Joseph, Trae Waynes and Stephen Weatherly. The Vikings still have Kirk Cousins at quarterback and Adam Thielen at receiver, but running back Dalvin Cook has threatened to hold out and there is no question the offense will have to score more points this season because the defense is weaker. The Vikings are completely overvalued as the favorite to win the NFC North.
Green Bay Packers +177
The Packers are coming off a 13-3 season, but they are not getting much respect, as they are the second choice to win the division. The Packers didn’t do a lot in the off-season, as they lost Brian Bulaga, Blake Martinez and Jimmy Graham. The team also went out and drafted a quarterback in Jordan Love and that move seems to have irritated Aaron Rodgers. The Packers still don’t have a secondary receiver, so they have to count on Davante Adams to stay healthy and have another big season. The Packers look to be a team that could also be overvalued heading into this season.

Chicago Bears +490
If you want a team that could be worth a look entering this season it might be Chicago. The team went just 8-8 last season, but all indications are that Nick Foles is going to take over as the starting quarterback in place of Mitch Trubisky. There is no understating how important that could be, as Foles is a winner, while Trubisky is a mistake waiting to happen. The team also added defensive end Robert Quinn and tight end Jimmy Graham. The defense could be weaker, but many people are getting all excited because of the losses of Prince Amukamara, Leonard Floyd, and Haha Clinton-Dix. All three players are overrated, so the defensive losses may not be that bad. If Foles does indeed win the starting job, the Bears could be worth playing at odds of about 5-1 to win the NFC North in 2020.
Detroit Lions +555
The Lions went 3-12-1 last season, but oddsmakers seem bullish on Detroit’s chances this season. The team made a few moves in the off-season, but none of them really look that impressive. The team added Desmond Trufant at cornerback, but they lost Darius Slay. The Lions are still poorly coached, as Matt Patricia has not proven he can handle being a head coach. The Lions also have a quarterback in Matthew Stafford who is overrated and now he may be injury prone.
The Lions have to hope that Stafford stays healthy because they are counting on Chase Daniel to be the backup quarterback this season. Regardless of what Detroit does on the field, it is hard to have any confidence in the Lions with Patricia as the head coach. There is no value in taking Detroit to win the division at these odds.
