NFC West Biggest Surprise in 2017? Latest Odds

The odds to win the 2017 NFC West were as follows:

Seahawks 1/4

Cardinals 3/1

Rams 20/1

49ers 35/1

Yeah, the Cards can be competitive versus the Seahawks, but you see where this is going. 

LA and San Francisco had combined winnings of just six games last season. 


ESPN.com’s question of the day: What will be the biggest surprise in the division in 2017?

Josh Weinfuss, Arizona Cardinals reporter: Tough question. With all that has been reported about the fractions in the Seahawks' locker room, I don’t know if they’ll be able to put on a unified enough front during the season to mask their issues, which will lead to an unraveling of sorts for the defending NFC West champs. They won’t totally implode, largely because of the leadership at the top, with coach Pete Carroll, and the talent base. But that can take them only so far. I don’t see Seattle being the dominant force it has been in the past and, after everything that has gotten out about the infighting, early losses could fracture the team to the point of no return. That would lead to a lost season and Seattle missing the playoffs, which then would leave room for the Cardinals to reclaim the NFC West title.

Translation: The Cardinals have some value at 3-1 odds to win the division
