NFC South Odds to Win

For the second time in a decade, the winner of the NFC South had a losing record. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers only managed to go 8-9 in 2022 after winning the Super Bowl in 2020 and finishing 13-4 in 2021, and now there is a changing of the guard in this division. Tampa Bay has the longest odds to win the NFC South without Tom Brady, and the New Orleans Saints are once again considered the team to beat. However, this is easily the weakest division in the NFC as every team has several question marks coming into this season.

Derek Carr is the most proven quarterback in the NFC South. That has helped make the New Orleans Saints the favorites to win the division although Carr is an average to above average signal caller. Carr will have some very good weapons to work with in the Big Easy as Alvin Kamara is an excellent dual threat running back, and Chris Olave and Michael Thomas could be a very good receiving tandem. The Saints have had a very good defense for the last three seasons too, ranking in the top seven in total defense each year.

The Atlanta Falcons are going to roll with Desmond Ridder under center this season. Ridder did not have a strong rookie year, but the Falcons want to see what they have with the third-round pick in the 2022 NFL Draft. There is no denying that he has plenty of talent at the skill positions with Kyle Pitts, Drake London, and Bijan Robinson, and the Falcons will need to score some points considering how bad the defense has been in recent seasons.

This is clearly a rebuilding year for the Carolina Panthers. The franchise fired Matt Rhule after three disappointing seasons, and they traded for the No. 1 overall pick in order to select Bryce Young from Alabama. Carolina added Adam Thielen, Hayden Hurst, and Miles Sanders in free agency, so this offense is very much a work in progress. The defense has quite a bit of talent though and should keep the Panthers in most games.

If you’ve seen any of the videos coming out of Tampa Bay’s minicamp, it could be a very long season for the Buccaneers. Kyle Trask clearly was overvalued coming out of the draft, and Baker Mayfield is now with his fourth franchise in three seasons. There is talent at the receiver position with Mike Evans and Chris Godwin on the edge, but this team will lean heavily on its defense like the Bucs’ teams of old.

The New Orleans Saints are the most successful team in the history of the NFC South. They were the last team in the division to claim the title for the first time, but they won four straight NFC South crowns from 2017 to 2020.

It’s been interesting to watch the NFC South over the years. There has been a lot of historical parity, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers only became the dominant team in the division in 2020. Tampa Bay hadn’t won an NFC South title in 13 years before that point, but the arrival of Tom Brady coupled with the retirement of Drew Brees and Sean Payton made the Buccaneers the elite team.
