The Packers have come storming out of the blocks to be one of only two undefeated teams (alongside division rivals Detroit). However it's proving to be a tight race, with seven of the NFL's 32 franchises apparently in the running according to the odds betting.
Leading online and mobile betting company William Hill presents the following odds: Green Bay, 4/1, New England Patriots, 9/2, New Orleans Saints, 8/1, Baltimore Ravens, 9/1, San Diego Chargers, 10/1, Houston Texans, Detroit Lions, 12/1.NFL conference and division odds
There are plenty of NFL betting options to be found, not the least of which is the tight race for the NFC East division: 888sports has the Philadelphia Eagles leading the race at 2/1, followed closely by the New York Giants, 11/5, Dallas Cowboys, 3/1, and Washington Redskins, 10/3. There's plenty of value here as Philly has started the season with just one win from four games.
The AFC conference race is the most interesting option at William Hill, with New England, 2/1, leading Baltimore, 4/1, and San Diego and Houston, 5/1, in the odds currently listed on that online betting site.
