The NFC North has traditionally been one of the most competitive divisions in the NFL over time, along with the race has been crowned the winner of the North is shaping up to become yet another one.
At BetOnline, the Chicago Bears are the +160 favorites. The Green Bay Packers (+195), Minnesota Vikings (+240) and Detroit Lions (+1000) standing behind Mitchell Trubisky along with company.
Here’s a breakdown of each team’s chances

Directed by a ferocious defense, the Bears once again lived up into the”Monsters of the Midway” moniker at 2018 and so were far and away the best team in the division with a 12-4 SU record. Unfortunately for Matt Nagy’s club, that amazing season will not be recalled.
Instead, Cody Parkey’s missed attempt in a playoff loss against the Philadelphia Eagles will remain as the standout moment in the Bears’ campaign.
Chicago made some strides and will be still now in a prime position, although that disappointing end proved to be a difficult pill to swallow for fans to combat again.
Quarterback Mitchell Trubisky looked just like the real deal and Nagy’s system afforded some results. Together with Khalil Mack set to terrorize offenses, the Bears’ +160 cost feels justified.
Last year was one to overlook the Packers and their supporters, but the good news for the faithful that are green and gold is that the team. Ex-head trainer Mike McCarthy’s midseason firing was a very long time coming, along with Green Bay found its new leader in Sean McVay disciple Matt LaFleur.
The Packers have missed the playoffs for two consecutive seasons — the first time that’s happened since 2006 and 2005. But if Aaron Rodgers can remain the team and healthier adheres to LaFleur, I don’t anticipate Green Bay’s postseason drought to keep.
Tough the Bears will be tough, but there is a wild-card spot attainable, if they can not catch Chicago.
Expectations for Minnesota were instantly increased last spring After Kirk Cousins signed up a $84-million contract with the Vikings. The whole teamn’t fulfilled those expectations, and also Cousins’ year at the Gopher State went together using a playoff berth.
Cousins might need to determine how to beat great teams, if the Vikings are to make a playoff drive in 2019. Minnesota moved 1-6 SU against squads with winning records last season, and Cousins is currently 5-25 SU in his career against winning teams.
The Vikes defense remains strong and Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen present the very most effective combo in the wide receiver position at the NFL, until he starts winning big games, but that I can’t place any stock in to Cousins. I believe their +240 cost to win against the North is a stay-away wager to me.
The Lions were the forgotten group in the NFC North in a horrible stretch from 2000 to 2010 who saw them miss the playoffs every year, and despite making the postseason three times in a six-year span from 2011 to 2016, the Lions have once more found themselves as the”other” team in the division over the previous few seasons.
On the insides of the uninspiring 6-10 SU effort, Lions general manager Bob Quinn was active in free agency, signing Trey Flowers, Jesse James, Justin Coleman, Rashaan Melvin, C.J. Anderson and Andrew Adams.
New rookie tight end T.J. Hockenson will add a much-needed facet to the offense, but I simply don’t think the Lions have the ability to create a run from the division. BetOnline agrees, according to their +1000 number.
