The NFC East is still the ugly stepchild in the view of sports books on the Strip.
Oddsmakers project the division to be competitive yet underwhelming for the second straight season.
Among the four teams, Dallas has the highest win total at 9.5 (under -130). However, the Cowboys are the NFL’s only projected division winner with a win total that is not in double digits.
By comparison, the Los Angeles Rams (10.5), Tampa Bay Buccaneers (11.5), Green Bay Packers (11), Kansas City Chiefs (12), Baltimore Ravens (11), Indianapolis Colts (10) and Buffalo Bills (10.5) all represent stronger top teams.
The win totals also indicate that Washington (8), New York (7) and the Eagles (7) can surpass Dallas to win the division.
In fact, at 5-1, the Eagles have the shortest division odds of any team that is expected to finish in last place in 2021.
