Detroit Lions updated NFC North odds following Aaron Rodgers trade
With Rodgers being sent out of the NFC North, the division odds have been released, and as you can see below, the Lions are the favorite at +130, followed by the Vikings (+300), Bears (+325), and Packers (+450).
Bottom Line: There is work to be done for Lions
As a fan of the Lions, it is pretty cool to see them listed as the odds-on favorite to win the NFC North for the first time since it changed from the NFC Central Division. With that being said, there are so many things that need to go right, and so many things that can go wrong, that can determine a division winner on a yearly basis. Yes, the Lions are +130 to win the North, but now they have to go out on the field and prove themselves.
