NFL Betting Preview For The AFC East: Odds Favor The Bills

Josh Allen of the Buffalo Bills

Believe it or not, the first game of the NFL season is less than two months away, with the Hall of Fame Game set to kick off the preseason on August 1st. Odds are now posted for most NFL betting outcomes, so it is high time we put together our 2024-25 season preview.

First up is the AFC East, a division with three franchises that could take the crown. The current AFC East Division odds are as follows.

2024-25 Odds To Win AFC East Division

Buffalo Bills +165

  • The odds for betting on the Buffalo Bills suggest they will win the AFC East this season, but the New York Jets are nipping at their heels. Gone is mouthy wide receiver Stefon Diggs. Rookie wide receiver Keon Coleman (Florida State) was selected 33rd overall in the second round. How much Coleman serves to replace Diggs’ production remains to be seen, but key departures on the Bills’ secondary are more concerning as there’ll be plenty of new faces.

New York Jets +170

  • This year, it is “Aaron Rodgers take two” for the New York Jets. Their star veteran quarterback signee missed his entire first season with New York and intends to quickly make up for lost time. Their odds of winning the division place them just 5 points behind the Bills. The Jets finished 7-10 in 2023-24 without Rodgers and have added some extra protection for him on the front line by drafting tackle Olumuyiwa Fashanu out of Penn State at pick number 11 in the first round.

Miami Dolphins +215

  • The Miami Dolphins were just short of elite last season, finishing with an 11-6 record and losing the division to Buffalo on the final weekend. The odds for betting on the Dolphins imply third-place potential. A veteran acquisition that could tip the balance in the AFC East in Miami’s favor is safety Jordan Poyer, who was cut by Buffalo in the offseason. The Dolphins’ offense should flourish with all of their top talent returning.

New England Patriots +2500

  • It is no surprise to find the New England Patriots listed in last place in the preseason division futures. Gone is likely the greatest head coach in the history of the NFL, Bill Belichick. Helming the Patriots now is first-year HC Jerod Mayo, who played for and coached under Belichick for his entire career in both endeavors. New England finished 4-13 last year and returns with much of the same roster save for first-round quarterback Drake Maye (North Carolina).

AFC East Prop Bets

The preseason field of candidates included in the NFL MVP odds is always deep, but only a few AFC East players are listed within contention. Josh Allen (BUF) is currently rated second with a +775 moneyline, followed by Aaron Rodgers (NYJ) in tenth at +1800, and Tua Tagovailoa in eleventh at +2000.

The odds to win the NFL’s Coach of the Year honors feature Mike McDonald (MIA) in sixth at +1200, Robert Salah (NYJ) in ninth at +1600, with Mayo (NEP) and Sean McDermott (BUF) in the middle of the pack.

Speedster Tyreek Hill (MIA) is listed second in the NFL Offensive Player of the Year odds, garnering a moneyline of +700. Hill trails Christian McCaffrey of the San Francisco 49ers by 50 points and is poised to at least repeat his statistical output from last season.

Of all AFC East rookies, the Patriots’ Drake Maye has the most potential to become the Offensive ROY at +2200, good for seventh place overall.
