The current odds at Oddsmaker, where the bonuses are the best in the business have the Pittsburgh Steelers the -150 favorites to win the AFC North Division. Pittsburgh were the champions of the AFC North in 2016 with a mark of 11-5. They made it as far as the AFC Championship game where they were defeated at New England 36-17 failing to cover as a 5 ½ point underdog. Prior to that loss the Steelers picked up victories at home to Miami and on the road to Kansas City in the playoffs. There was talk of Ben Roethlisberger thinking retirement but the veteran will return as the starter. Pittsburgh was sixth in the NFL in passing. Big Ben Threw for 3819 yards as he completed 64.4% of his throws for 29 touchdowns and 13 picks.

Second favorites are the Baltimore Ravens at +240 odds. The Ravens failed to earn a playoff spot by finishing the season with an 8-8 mark. Point production haunted Baltimore last season by averaging 21.4 a game which was 21st in the NFL. Joe Flacco completed 64.9% of his passes for 4317 yards but only 20 touchdown passes with 15 picks.

The Cincinnati Bengals are third in the wagering at +350 odds. The Bengals compiled a losing season in 2016 at 6-9-1. Their offensive numbers fell dramatically in 2016 including scoring offense as the team pushed across just 20.3 points a game which was 24th in the NFL. Andy Dalton completed 64.7% of his throws but had only 18 touchdown passes with eight picks. The 18 touchdown passes were a career low.

Longshots as usual are the Cleveland Browns returning +8000 odds to win their division. Cleveland suffered through a 1-15 season avoiding a winless campaign late in the year with a victory at home to the San Diego Chargers on Christmas Eve. Cleveland was 31st in scoring and 30th in scoring defense in 2016. Both sides of the ball are in need of drastic improvement. Brock Osweiler and Cody Kessler are battling for the starters job at quarterback.
