Amid rumors of a potential Aaron Rodgers trade, the Denver Broncos’ odds to win the division have shortened considerably from its opening mark of +1800 to its current rate of +500 at BetMGM.
The Broncos are still considered longshots to best the Kansas City Chiefs (-300) in the AFC West, but Denver is nevertheless the largest liability in the division at the sportsbook.
The Green Bay Packers’ odds to win the NFC North have lengthened from -250 to -120 as a result of the uncertainty around their reigning MVP quarterback.
The Minnesota Vikings are the second-best favorites at +250, and the Bears are +325 to win the division. The Detroit Lions have +2200 odds to win their first NFC North title since 1993.

Jacksonville hired head coach Urban Meyer and drafted No. 1 overall pick Trevor Lawrence over the offseason.
The Jaguars still trail the Tennessee Titans (+110) and Indianapolis Colts (+105) in the very early, preseason divisional race. The Houston Texans are +2500 to win the division.
Jacksonville is BetMGM’s largest liability coming out of the AFC South.
The next most notable divisional odds shift has occurred in the NFC South, where the Buccaneers are now -200 favorites to win the division. That’s down from an opening line of -125.
