The 2013 NFL regular season is set to begin in less than a week, as the Denver Broncos host the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday night. It’s one of the biggest games of the year, since it includes the defending champs and the 2014 Super Bowl favorites.

Even if last year’s AFC West champs don’t make it to MetLife Stadium in February, they are expected to reach the playoffs with relative ease. No other team is a heavier favorite to win their division. Their odds have been set at -300, while the Kansas City Chiefs come in second at +400.

The New England Patriots betting odds for winning their division have also been set at -300. The Miami Dolphins are expected to be the biggest challenger in the AFC East at +325.

The Houston Texans and Green Bay Packers are the only other odds-on favorites to win their respective divisions. The defending AFC South champs come in at -250, while Green Bay is -140 in the NFC North.

Not surprisingly, the projected best teams in the league have the top MVP candidates. Peyton Manning leads the candidates, which are comprised mostly of quarterbacks. Adrian Peterson, last year’s winner, is the only player in the top 10 that doesn’t play under center.

Below are the betting odds for each division in the 2013 season, according to Bovada. Odds for individual awards are included, as well.

MVP: Peyton Manning (5/1), Aaron Rodgers (13/2) Colin Kaepernick (10/1), Drew Brees (10/1), Tom Brady (10/1), Adrian Peterson (12/1), Matt Ryan (12/1)
