The New York Giants lead the NFC East and are getting the most respect in NFL lines as they sit at 5-0. The Minnesota Vikings are right there as well as they sit at 5-0.
NFL betting odds at the online sportsbook are also popular on the New Orleans Saints who are 4-0 after having a bye this past week. Either the Giants or the Saints are going to suffer a loss this coming week as they meet on Sunday in New Orleans. The Saints are three-point home favorites in NFL betting odds. The Vikings have their toughest game to date as well this week as they host the Baltimore Ravens in NFL betting odds. Minnesota is a three-point home favorite in NFL lines at the sportsbook.
There are two unbeaten teams in the AFC. The Indianapolis Colts and Denver Broncos are 5-0. The Colts have their bye week so they will remain unbeaten while the Broncos have a tough road contest in NFL betting odds at San Diego. The Chargers are 4-point home favorites in NFL betting odds at the online sportsbook in what should be an excellent Monday Night Football game.
What is somewhat surprising is that the Giants are considered the favorites in NFL betting odds to reach the Super Bowl from the NFC, yet they are underdogs in NFL lines this week at New Orleans. The Saints are not getting the same respect in NFL futures at the sportsbook as New York, Minnesota or even the 3-1 Philadelphia Eagles.
The AFC is wide open in NFL lines with the Indianapolis Colts the early favorites since they are 5-0 with Peyton Manning leading the way. The Denver Broncos are also 5-0 but they are not getting nearly as much respect in NFL betting odds. More respect in NFL betting odds is actually given to the 3-2 New England Patriots and the 3-2 Pittsburgh Steelers.
What does going unbeaten early in the NFL betting odds season really mean? It simply means a team is off to a hot start. It does not mean that start will continue or that a team is a lock to finish strongly or even make the playoffs. Keep that in mind as you look at the NFL betting odds the remainder of this season.
