2016 NFL odds: Seattle Seahawks, not Arizona Cardinals, odds-on favorites to win NFC West

New, comments

Vegas heavily favors Russell Wilson and company.

Arizona Cardinals fans once again are going to feel the pain of disrespect. Bovada released the betting odds for each NFL team to win their division. As you can imagine, the Cardinals are not favored.

After a 13-3 season in which they made it to the NFC Championship Game and made key improvements, the Seattle Seahawks are still the odds-on betting favorites to win the NFC West.

Here are the odds:

Odds to Win the 2016-17 NFC West                              

Seattle Seahawks                      10/11                    
Arizona Cardinals                      7/5                              
Los Angeles Rams 15/2                            
San Francisco 49ers 20/1

Now, in all fairness, 7/5 odds aren't bad, but it is troubling to see the Seahawks at 10/11.

Of course, we must remember Vegas odds are more for getting bets and the Cardinals are still not considered a public team. Seattle is probably in that category now after several years of success and some very recognizable characters on their team.

Still, Arizona win the division and appears to have gotten better, while Seattle has lost Marshawn Lynch and almost their whole offensive line. Maybe it makes sense for bettors, but it really doesn't make sense in terms of football prognostications.

Here are the rest of the divisional odds:
