In 1920, the American Professional Football Association was formed which was later renamed as the National Football League for the 1922 season. The NFL follows a format of a 17-week regular season starting from early September to late December, followed by the playoffs between the six teams (four division winners and two wild-card teams) of each conference, a single-elimination competition culminating in the Super Bowl. The 2018 National Football League is scheduled to commence on 6th September 2018. The preseason was on full swing and with just a few days before the season actually kicks off, the odds and predictions of the teams to top the season are expected as follow:

Prediction of the top three teams of NFL
The top three teams that are predicted to win the NFL 2018 are from the AFC division, the NFC North division, and the NFC East division. The New England Patriot is the only AFC team which stands as one of the top teams to win the season outright. The Green Bay Packers is an AFC North divisional team that ranks as the third team to top the season whereas the NFC East team, Philadelphia Eagles move past the Packers and stand on the second position to win outright.
Odds of the top three teams
The New England Patriots are considered to be the favorites with an odd of 6.00 according to the Bet365 as of 3rd September 2018, 12.45 PM. Despite losing the Super Bowl, the defending champions with quarterback Tom Hardy and Bill Belichick as their head coach have been one of the most successful teams in an NFL. Though the Eagles finished the last season first in total efficiency, the Patriots grabbed the top spot in fixing odds.

|green bay packers||10.00|
As per the Bet365, the Philadelphia Eagles get a fixed odd of 10.00. The Eagles won their first Super Bowl Championship in 2017. Because of the two-quarterback players Nick Foles and Carson Wentz, the team can be expected to reach the finals and take back home the prestigious Lombardy Trophy.
Though Foles has carried the squad seamlessly throughout the playoffs and is a proven backup, yet the Eagles are looking forward to Wentz who did not play in the preseason and is still rehabbing his injury.
The Green Bay Packers get an odd of 10.00 according to the Bet365. Aaron Rodgers, the quarterback of the Packers is a prime candidate along with the two linebackers, Greer Martin and Antonio Morrison are expected to give their best in order to fill up the absence of Burks. Since Burks will be unavailable for the season opener, the linebacker Blake Martinez will have to manage the field.
The above three teams are likely to have the best chances to win the Super Bowl. Apart from these teams, the Pittsburgh Steelers, and the Minnesota Vikings are also one of the tough contenders and have the potentiality to claim the trophy.
