Odds to win the NFC North: Packers maintain lead with win

Last year may have been the Packers' last dance with Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams together, but Green Bay hopes the music won't stop yet amid its dominant run in the NFC North.

The latest: Fresh off a trio of consecutive 13-win seasons, the Packers are favoured to collect their fourth straight NFC North title. The Vikings took down the Packers in Week 1, but Green Bay has looked more put together since then.

Here are the latest NFC North odds.

Best NFC North odds

The favourite: Packers (-134)

When Rodgers told Bears fans, "I still own you" last fall, he might as well have been addressing the whole division.

The two-time reigning MVP is 57-22-1 against divisional foes in his glistening career, and his presence under centre in Titletown is the biggest reason Green Bay entered the season as a minus-odds favourite.

Losing to Minnesota in Week 1 wasn't part of the plan, but subsequent victories over Chicago, Tampa Bay and New England have restored the Packers' minus-odds frontrunner status.

All-Pro tackle David Bakhtiari was back in the fold for Week 3, closing the loop on an offensive line that was beaten up to start the year.

Let's not forget how awful Green Bay looked in Week 1 last year (a 38-3 defeat in New Orleans). A slow start to a season never feels good, but it doesn't always indicate a long-term trend.

Then again, the Packers needed overtime to defeat the Patriots, who were on the road with rookie Bailey Zappe under centre. Most of the Packers' concerns are on the offensive side, where Rodgers is still trying to mesh with an inexperienced receiving corps.

On defence, Green Bay made Kirk Cousins look like Dante Culpepper in Week 1, but since then the unit has been stout. The Packers rank sixth and seventh in total and scoring defence, respectively.

Other NFC North choices

Best value: Vikings (+120)

The Vikings could easily be 1-3 instead of 3-1. But thanks to 15 minutes and a favourable bounce, they're in great shape so far this season.

In a Week 3 win over the Lions, Minnesota trailed 24-14 entering the final frame before fighting back for a four-point win. This past week, the Vikings came inches from allowing a game-tying field goal against the Saints in the dying seconds, but a double doink kept the ball out.

Since dominating the Packers in the season opener, Minnesota has gotten crushed by the Eagles and snuck by both the Lions and Saints. We've seen three iterations of this team through four weeks, and only one was encouraging.

Between Justin Jefferson and Dalvin Cook, Minnesota has the most explosive wide receiver/running back duo in the division. We just haven't seen both stars shining at the same time for much of the season so far.

Team to watch: Detroit Lions (+3,300)

Detroit embodies the "Team to watch" category because it often plays tight games — even if it doesn't often win.

The Lions haven't struggled to score points through three games, but their opponents haven't struggled to score, either. Detroit has the most points scored (140) and the most points allowed (141).

We'd love to see what the Lions' division odds would've looked like had they knocked off the Vikings. But perhaps their inability to close out that game tells us all we need to know about the NFC North's favourite doormat.

So go ahead and bet the over when the Lions are playing. But maybe don't bet on them to win the division.
