Betting On NFC North Online

Meet the four contestants in the “black and blue” division, otherwise known as the North Division in the National Football Conference — the Chicago Bears, Detroit Lions, Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings. These long-time division rivals have been pounding on each other for years. The division was created in 1967 as the Central Division of the NFL’s Western Conference and existed for three seasons before the AFL-NFL merger. After the merger in 1970, it was renamed the NFC Central and retained that name until the NFL split into eight divisions in 2002. [+]

Based on the combined ages of its current teams, the NFC North is the oldest division in the NFL, at 336 years old.

The four teams have a total of 11 Super Bowl appearances, with the Packers topping the list at five. The last Super Bowl winner from this division was Green Bay in 2011. The Packers were the sixth seed in the NFC and won three road games to earn a trip to Texas for Super Bowl 45.

Three of the top 10 NFL teams with the highest winning percentage in their franchise history reside in the NFC North (Chicago, Green Bay and Minnesota). Detroit is stuck in the bottom half of those rankings with one of the lowest winning percentages, including the only winless 16-game season in NFL history, in 2008.

NFC North Online Betting Tips

The Packers started the season 4-6, just about the time quarterback Aaron Rodgers was telling Green Bay fans to “R-E-L-A-X.” He was right. The Packers swept their final six games and stole the division crown from the Lions, who lost their last three contests. In the playoffs, Green Bay lost the NFC title game, while Detroit was thumped in a wild card game.

The Packers look to make the playoffs for the ninth straight season with their superstar, Rodgers, leading the way. But to be a Super Bowl contender, Green Bay needs more from their defense, which was ranked in the bottom half of the league. The Packers have a tough assignment to start the season when they host Seattle and then travel to Atlanta. But it’s the last two games against their division rivals at home against Minnesota and on the road in Detroit that may decide the division title.

The Lions started off 2016 with a 1-3 record. This season looks like it could be a carbon copy of the last as they meet Arizona, New York Giants, Atlanta and Minnesota in the first four weeks. The Lions have struggled to run the ball for a few years. They have also had a difficult time protecting their franchise QB in Matthew Stafford. They will need to improve in both areas, or the final game of the season at home to Green Bay may not matter.

The Vikings blazed out of the gate last season, winning their first six of seven, before collapsing in their final nine to finish a disappointing 8-8. Can Minnesota rebound behind eight-year veteran Sam Bradford? If the Vikings are going to make the playoffs, they’ll have to do it by winning away from home, as they try to tackle a schedule that includes three road games against Detroit, Atlanta and Carolina in 17 days.

The Bears, 3-13 last season and 0-8 on the road, open against Atlanta, the defending NFC champions. It’s also the first start for QB Mike Glennon, who has thrown for one touchdown in the last two years in the NFL and 30 in his career. The Bears then take on Tampa Bay, Pittsburgh and Green Bay. This has 0-4 written all over it. The Bears have finished last in the NFC North three years running. It’s hard to make a case that this won’t be their fourth.
