A Bet By Any Other Name (NFL Edition)

Perhaps this isn't as clear-cut as it was for MLB, but here are some 'to win division' odds that are available for various teams at BetCRIS, juxtaposed against the Week 17 money lines at that same book:

AFC East

Miami
Futures price: +135
Money line price: +120 (straight bet against NYJ)

New England
Futures price: -115
Money line price: +129 (parlay NE and NYJ)

New York Football Jets
Futures price: +570
Money line price: +500 (parlay NYJ and Buf)

NFC North

Chicago
Futures price: +380
Money line price: +631 (parlay Chi and NYG)

Minnesota
Futures price: -910
Money line price: -816 (it's complicated)

NFC South

Atlanta
Futures price: +135
Money line price: +151 (parlay Atl and NO)

Carolina
Futures price: -215
Money line price: -183 (it's complicated)

As the saying goes, it pays to line shop, sometimes even if you only have one betting account.
