2015 AFC East Odds to Win favor Patriots 2015 AFC East Odds to Win favor Patriots

In the past fourteen years, the New England Patriots have simply dominated the AFC East division. In fact, under the reign of Bill Belichick with Tom Brady at quarterback, the Patriots have won the division twelve times and are the NFL betting favorites to do so once again in 2015. Although Brady will be sidelined for the first four games of the season due to the "deflategate" scandal, 2015 AFC East odds to win still favor the New England Patriots (-150) followed by the Miami Dolphins (+400), the Buffalo Bills (+425) and the New York Jets (+750).

Without Brady at the helm, it is likely that Jimmy Garoppolo will get the start behind center as he enters his second season. Although the Pats also lost cornerback Darrelle Revis (Jets) and Brandon Browner (Saints) to the free agency market, Vegas sportsbooks do not seem too concerned about New England being able to win the AFC East once again. That being said, many gamblers and fans of Patriots Nation are wondering if the Dolphins, Bills and Jets have made enough substantial roster changes to dethrone New England in 2015?

The Miami Dolphins added numerous offensive weapons during the off-season with the additions of Greg Jennings (Vikings), Kenny Stills (Saints) and DeVante Parker (Louisville) as their first-round pick in the NFL draft. Ryan Tannehill will once again lead the "phins" at QB after throwing for 4,045-yards last season to make Miami a formidable foe for any team but as it has been said, it is the defense that wins championships. The Dolphins did add Pro Bowl defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh (Lions) to tighten up the inside run but with numerous young players filling in the secondary, does Miami have the experience to win the division in 2015 AFC East odds and beyond? That remains to be seen.

The Buffalo Bills have a new head coach in Rex Ryan but with a considerable amount of uncertainty at the quarterback position, it's anyone guess as to how their season will pan out. Either EJ Manual or Matt Cassel will get the start for Buffalo at QB and will be happy to see running back LeSean McCoy (Eagles) eager to better last year's mark of 1,319-yards. Wide receiver Sammy Watkins returns to the field for his second year after undergoing hip surgery during the offseason. On the defensive side of the ball; some analysts consider the Bills to have a top 3 squad playing under Ryan's aggressive style.

The New York Jets are longshots in 2015 AFC East odds to win with new head coach Todd Boyles and deciding to to continue putting their faith in quarterback Geno Smith. "Gang Green" nation is counting on the third year veteran to better last season's total of just 2,525-yards for 13-touchdowns and 13-interceptions. Smith is also guilty of committing 41-tournovers in just 30-career games. That being said, Smith and the Jets will have a new offensive weapon this season with the addition of Brandon Marshall (Bears) to compliment Eric Decker at wide receiver. The defense welcomes back Revis (Patriots) and Antonio Cromartie (Cardinals) to improve the secondary.

  • Pittsburgh Steelers vs New England Patriots Odds - NFL Predictions Week 1

    The New England Patriots will begin the quest to defend their Super Bowl title from last year when they square off with the Pittsburgh Steelers on what has become the traditional Thursday night opener of the National Football League season. Both teams will be missing some key players though. It looked as if New England would have to start week 1 without All-Pro quarterback Tom Brady for the first four games of the season due to the "DeflateGate" scandal in which the Patriots were accused of tampering with game balls during last year's AFC playoffs however that will not be the case. Brady will be suited up and behind center for Thursday's season opener after Judge Richard Berman nullified the NFL's imposed suspension last week. As a result, Pittsburgh Steelers vs New England Patriots odds in Vegas currently favor Brady and the Pats at home by a touchdown (-7) while NFL predictions have the over/under total posted at 52½.

    Offseason suspensions have also affected the Pittsburgh Steelers who will play without star running back Le’Veon Bell. The third-year pro was suspended for an arrest on drug charges prior to last season. Initially, Bell was to miss three games, but the suspension was reduced to the first two contests of the 2015 season. Without Bell, the Steelers will work former Carolina RB DeAngelo Williams more. Williams was added in the offseason to give Pittsburgh some added depth at the position. Behind Williams, the Steelers have the speedy Dri Archer and rookie Josh Harris. Another major factor playing into Pittsburgh Steelers vs New England Patriots odds is the fact that WR Martavis Bryant, who is expected to have a breakout second season, will also miss the week 1 opener on Thursday due to suspension.

    The 6-4 Bryant has 4.4 speed and has had a great training camp. It was found that he violated the league’s substance abuse policy and will miss the first four games of the season. Still, the Steelers offense will revolve around quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and the passing game as it did a year ago. Roethlisberger led the NFL in passing yards a year ago and WR Antonio Brown led the league in receiving yards. The bigger question in NFL predictions for those betting on Pittsburgh Steelers vs New England Patriots odds is how the once vaunted "terrible towels" defense will respond without its architect, defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau who is now in Tennessee, and without former stars Troy Polamalu and Jason Worilds, both of whom retired. The week 1 season opener (Thursday, September 10th) between the Pittsburgh Steelers and New England Patriots can be seen live on NBC at 8:30pm EST from Gillette Stadium.

  • Indianapolis Colts vs Buffalo Bills Odds - NFL Picks Week 1

    Another new era begins in Buffalo as head coach Rex Ryan takes over and LeSean McCoy lines up as the feature back in an offense that needs a catalyst. The new-look Buffalo Bills welcome the AFC South Division champion Indianapolis Colts to Ralph Wilson Stadium in the season opener. Ryan announced that sixth-year pro Tyrod Taylor would start at quarterback for the Bills. Buffalo had picked up Matt Cassel in the offseason and former first-round draft choice E.J. Manuel was also expected to contend for the job. Taylor beat both of them out and begins the season as the Buffalo Bills starter. With Taylor behind center, Colts vs Bills odds in Vegas have Buffalo listed as three point home underdogs (+3) while NFL picks for week 1 have the over/under total listed at 46.

    McCoy will take some of the pressure off of Taylor but he is going to have to make some throws. He will have two pretty good young receivers in Robert Woods and Sammy Watkins with which to do so. Beyond that, the weapons are slim. Percy Harvin is not what he used to be, but the Bills are playing a Colts defense that was somewhat mediocre for a playoff caliber team. The Colts did add Trent Cole to pair with OLB Robert Mathis to create a pretty good pass rush tandem. Still, the defense must improve for the Colts to shut down an elite back like McCoy. Indianapolis also drafted defense choosing four players on that side of the ball within the first five picks of the 2015 draft. For Rex Ryan's squad to pull of the week 1 upset in Indianapolis Colts vs Buffalo Bills odds, Taylor will need to utilize Woods and Watkins often while the defense must find a way to contain Indianapolis' potent air attack.

    It is no secret though that the strength of the Colts is with their offense. Andrew Luck is one of the best young quarterbacks in the game. The former No. 1 pick threw for 4,761 yards and 40 touchdowns in his third season in the league. The Colts added RB Frank Gore and WR Andre Johnson to an already explosive offense. The Bills defense, which was fourth in the league in scoring and total defense, will have its hands full with Luck and the rest of the Indianapolis Colts offense. Early action has 68% of the gambling public taking the Colts in NFL picks for week 1 laying the points on the road while 62% are backing the under (46). The season opener (Sunday, September 13th) between the Indianapolis Colts and Buffalo Bills can be seen live on CBS at 1:00pm EST from Ralph Wilson Stadium.
