Betting on NFL Futures Following the 2023 Draft

  • Starting with Bryce Young, the Panthers’ 2023 Draft Class makes their +300 divisional odds favorable.
  • The Eagles SB58 odds shortened to +750 after drafting Jalen Carter and Nolan Smith in the first.

KANSAS CITY – The 2023 NFL Draft is now in the past and online sportsbooks have shifted their odds for the 2023-24 Super Bowl conference winners and divisional winners. While the change in odds was not too significant, there were a few teams that became significantly better and could have value for future betting.

Eagles’ Draft Performance Helps Shorten SB58 Odds

Following the Draft, the Philadelphia Eagles have the second shortest Super Bowl odds at +750 at online sportsbooks in the US. Before the draft took place, the Eagles had the third shortest Super Bowl odds at +900 behind the San Francisco 49ers but plugged some defensive and offensive holes through their picks.

The Eagles did not only strengthen their defense by drafting DT Jalen Carter and LB Nolan Smith from UGA in the round but added running back depth through a trade with the Lions. The addition of D’Andre Swift helps to fill a void created by the departure of Miles Sanders.

During the 2022-23 season, the Eagles had the fifth most rushing yards by any team with over 2,500 and Swift will help maintain the run first mentality that brought Philly to Super Bowl 57. Only playing 14 games during the 2022 regular season, Swift recorded over 900 total yards for Detroit.

Betting on the Panthers to Win the NFC South Following 2023 Draft

NFL sportsbooks have the Carolina Panthers tied with the second shorts odds to win the NFC South for the 2023-24 season with +300 odds. Carolina sent a message to the division this preseason by securing the number one pick in the draft and selecting Bryce Young.

NFC South Odds

  • New Orleans Saints+115
  • Atlanta Falcons+300
  • Carolina Panthers+300
  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers+650

Along with Young, the Panthers drafted WR Jonathan Mingo in the second round from Mississippi.

On the defensive end, Carolina picked up safety Jamie Robinson from Florida State in the fifth round, who very well could be the late round steal of the draft, as he was projected to be picked up in the fourth. They also added edge rusher DJ Johnson in the third round after being at the bottom of the league in sacks recorded in 2022.

The Panthers were one win away from taking the NFC South last year but fell short due to the last comeback victory of Tom Brady’s career. The Saints were made the favorite to win the division after trading for Derek Carr but this draft performance by the Panthers could help them secure the top spot this season.
