Thinking about placing some last-minute futures in the NFL before the season kicks off with the Buffalo Bills-Los Angeles Rams matchup on Thursday night?

Well, yours truly is here to predict the winner of every division in the NFL this season, and the goal is to 8-for-8. Will it happen? Probably not, but some of these picks, especially the ones at plus money, could be worth a little sprinkle before the NFL season begins. 

Using the odds at FanDuel Sportsbook, let’s predict the winner of each division in the NFL in 2022:

Who Will Win the AFC East Division?

The Buffalo Bills are Super Bowl favorites for a reason, as they improved their defense this offseason and added James Cook to their running back room. 

I’m not sure they make it out of the AFC, but this division has too many questions for me to fade Buffalo here.

Pick: Buffalo Bills (-230)

Who Will Win the AFC North Division?

I think we are going to get a special year from Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens, especially since they lost so many players to injury in 2021. 

John Harbaugh is one of the better coaches in the NFL, and a last-place schedule should do wonders for this team in 2022.

Pick: Baltimore Ravens (+145)

Who Will Win the AFC South Division?

The AFC South may be the worst division in the NFL, and I’m out on the Tennessee Titans after they moved on from A.J. Brown this offseason. 

The Jacksonville Jaguars could be frisky, but the Indianapolis Colts’ combination of a great defense and great running game should be enough to win this division. Plus, Matt Ryan is a major upgrade over Carson Wentz.

Pick: Indianapolis Colts (-140)

Who Will Win the AFC West Division?

I really wanted to take my Denver Broncos, but let’s not be foolish and bet against Patrick Mahomes, who has never lost an AFC West road game in his career. 

If K.C. clears its win total like I expect, I can’t see another team in this division keeping up, especially since they’ll beat up on each other most of the season. 

Pick: – Kansas City Chiefs (+165)

Who Will Win the NFC East Division?

The public is all over the Philadelphia Eagles in 2022, and I’m not going to go down with the ship. 

Yes, there are concerns about Dallas with injuries, but Dak Prescott is still far and away the best quarterback in this division. 

Pick: Dallas Cowboys (+155)

Who Will Win the NFC North Division?

Is there really another pick in this division?

Even with Davante Adams gone, Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers should be fine in the NFC North. The team has an elite defense, and it’s only a matter of time before Rodgers finds his new favorite target on offense.

Pick: Green Bay Packers (-155) 

Who Will Win the NFC South Division?

Tom Brady didn’t come out of retirement to lose the NFC South. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are loaded on offense still and should easily handle one of the weaker divisions in football.

Pick: Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-250)

Who Will Win the NFC West Division?

Getting Sean McVay’s squad at plus money seems like a steal, no matter how good you think Trey Lance and the San Francisco 49ers will be.

Pick:  Los Angeles Rams (+125)
