NFL future odds on the AFC East show a much more competitive division than last season. The Buffalo Bills are a less than even money chalk to win the title. Both the Miami Dolphins and New England Patriots are less than +400 choices, though.

2021 NFL Betting Odds & Picks for the AFC East Division
2021 NFL Regular Season
- When: Sep. 9, 2021 – Jan. 9, 2022
NFL AFC East
- Buffalo Bills -140
The Kansas City Chiefs beat the Buffalo Bills in the AFC Championship. The Bills making it to the conference title game was a massive step up. In 2021, many NFL Super Bowl future handicappers believe Buffalo takes the next step and makes it to the Lombardi Trophy game.
The main reason? Josh Allen will enter the season the favorite to win the NFL MVP. Allen has turned into one of the best quarterbacks in the league. He can pass and run.
Also, the defense should be much better. But as great as the Bills look, they’re a play against at the odds. Not because the Patriots should bounce back from last season, but because like Buffalo, Miami is a contender for the conference title.
Bills Offer Fair Odds: No
- Miami Dolphins +350
The Miami Dolphins are one of the best teams in the NFL. For some reason, many believe they take a backward step in 2021 after a stunning 11-5 2020 season.
Why so negative? We’re wondering the same thing. First, Miami’s defense allowed 21.1 points per game, ranking sixth in the league.
Second, yes, Tua Tagovailoa had a couple of bad games, but overall he completed 64.1% of his passes and threw 11 TDs to just 5 picks. Those are great numbers for a rookie who just landed his favorite college target in Jaylen Waddle.
The Fins shouldn’t be the AFC East favorite, but the odds difference is too much. The Bills should be +200 and the Dolphins should be +250.
Dolphins Offer Fair Odds: Yes
- New England Patriots +300
The Patriots are the biggest underlay on the board. New England made some major changes. None of the changes, including acquiring tight-end Hunter Henry, are for sure improvements.
More importantly, New England didn’t exactly fix its quarterback situation. Everybody went nuts after Mac Jones impressed during mini-camp. That’s mini-camp, a big difference from training camp and the regular season.
If Cam Newton starts, the team won’t do much. The Dolphins and Bills are just better, which is why at +300, the Patriots are a play against.
Patriots Offer Fair Odds: No
- New York Jets +1600
It doesn’t appear as if the Jets have any chance of winning the AFC East. But the odds make the J-E-T-S an overlay.
For starters, only three teams are in the division. Also, who knows what may happen? If Josh Allen gets hurt, Buffalo wills struggle. If Tua regresses, the Fins will struggle. The Patriots won’t win the division unless Mac Jones is the next coming of John Elway.
Who knows? If you’re a New York Jets fan, why not back your team at 16-to-1?
Jets Offer Fair Odds: Yes
