2023 NFC East Division NFL Odds & Predictions

By Hank Blaine

After being one of the worst divisions in the NFL at the turn of the decade, the NFC East came back with a vengeance in 2022, sending three teams into the playoffs including the reigning NFC champions the Eagles. Does Philadelphia still have an iron grasp of the division race odds-wise, or is there a new top contender for the division crown?

Nitrobetting is here to take your bets into the end zone this 2023 NFL season. This time, let’s break down each team from the NFC East and their corresponding odds of winning the division title in 2023.

2023 NFL Odds to Win the NFC East

There are not lines

Philadelphia Eagles

Make no mistake; the Eagles are still one of if not the main frontrunners not only to win the NFC East for the second straight year, but to also represent the NFC in the Super Bowl once more. That’s true even despite their loaded front seven having been ravaged to bits by the offseason. After all, Philly had the ninth-overall pick in this year’s draft, taking stud Georgia defensive lineman Jalen Cater to start the defensive rebuild on a high note.

Above all else, the Eagles will be in good hands for as long as Jalen Hurts continues to impress under center. The runner-up for the league MVP award last season is still equipped with a pair of fantastic receivers in A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith, while the arrival of pass-catching running back De’Andre Swift is a nice lateral move after letting Miles Sanders go in free agency. All things considered, Philadelphia is a well-run organization and is deserving of its status as an odds-on favorite to repeat as NFC East champs.

Dallas Cowboys

Perhaps the biggest defensive threat in the division now resides in Arlington, as the Cowboys enter the new season filled with young stars in the making. A defensive corps consisting of Micah Parsons, Demarcus Ware, Trevon Diggs, and Leighton Vander Esch just got even better with the arrival of former Defensive Player of the Year Stephon Gilmore.

On offense, meanwhile, Dallas is putting a lot of faith in Dak Prescott to have another one of his all-around campaigns barring another long bout with injuries. Although the team decided to cut ties with stud running back Ezekiel Elliott, backup Tony Pollard looked just as if not more impressive as the team’s lead back moving forward. With more upsides than downsides from the offseason, the Cowboys can be considered as co-favorites to win the NFC East for the fifth time in nine years.

New York Giants

Was the Giants’ breakout 2022 campaign under first-year head coach Brian Daboll a mere flash in the pan? The odds would indicate that that is indeed the case, as the G-Men are mere sleepers to beat out the rest of the division in 2023. After all, a 9-7-1 record is not exactly mindblowing in spite of the (short-lived) playoff berth as a result of that record.

New York’s offense is still as pedestrian as they come with quarterback Daniel Jones seeing a noticeable yet still unremarkable improvement in the passing game. Top-tier running back Saquon Barkley also had a nice bounce-back campaign, and the arrival of Raiders tight end Darren Waller should give Jones another nice weapon to work with downfield. The defense is still merely half-decent and with more uncertainly on the overall roster than the Eagles and Cowboys before them, the Giants can even be seen as a borderline longshot to emerge as the next kings of the NFC East.

Washington Commanders

The new ownership in Washington should liven up the morale of the team in the wake of the dreaded Dan Snyder era. Unfortunately, there will be growing pains in D.C. for the time being as head coach Ron Rivera begins the process of turning last year’s fifth-round pick, UNC quarterback Sam Howell, into the future of the Commanders’ offense.

Howell appeared ready for the big leagues in his lone start last season; a win over the Cowboys in the final game of the campaign. There are some bright spots on both sides of the ball with stud wideout Terry McLaurin (three-straight 1,000-yard receiving seasons) and star defensive lineman Chase Young geared up for a full season after playing only three games in 2022 having to recover from an ACL tear. But with so many glaring holes and an inexperienced QB at the helm, the Commanders can be confidently taken as a distant longshot to win the division title.
