The 2022-23 NFL season is fast approaching, and the question of whether any team will go undefeated in the Regular Season is at the forefront of many minds. With strong teams in both the NFC and AFC, the odds are against any team going undefeated in either the Regular Season or throughout the entire year.
In addition, the Detroit Lions will open the 2023-24 season against the defending Super Bowl champions and the NFL Draft is approaching for Kansas City.
This article will examine the NFC and AFC contenders, the odds, and predictions for whether any NFL team will go undefeated in the 2022-23 season.
The National Football Conference is home to some of the league’s top teams, including the San Francisco 49ers, Arizona Cardinals, and Seattle Seahawks, who are all expected to challenge for a spot in the playoffs in the 2022-23 season.
The 49ers and Seahawks are expected to meet twice, while the Cardinals will be without suspended WR DeAndre Hopkins at the start of the season.
Tampa Bay led by aging Brady and Green Bay with Aaron Rodgers are also potential contenders.
Dallas and Philadelphia, however, are not as strong.
It is unlikely that any team will go undefeated in the Regular Season or throughout the entire year, so the odds of any team achieving such a feat are minimal.
Competition in the AFC is fierce, with teams like Ravens, Browns, Bengals, Steelers, Chargers, Raiders, Chiefs, and Broncos all vying for the top spot. All of these teams have the potential to make a deep playoff run, but none of them likely has what it takes to go undefeated.
The Colts and Titans are good teams in the AFC South, but not elite. The Bills have a favorable schedule in the AFC East but will face tough opponents in the Non-Conference slate.
The odds of any team going undefeated in the Regular Season are -3500.
The key to success in the AFC will be:
- Consistent play from star players
- Resilience to overcome any injuries
- Strong coaching decisions in key moments
Odds and Predictions
Sportsbooks have released win totals for the upcoming NFL season, providing predictions for each team’s likelihood of success. According to these predictions, the odds of any team going undefeated in the NFL season are -3500.
Given the competitive nature of the NFC and AFC, it is highly unlikely that any team will go undefeated in the regular season or throughout the entire year. In the NFC, the 49ers, Cardinals, and Seahawks are all strong contenders, while in the AFC, the Ravens, Browns, Bengals, Steelers, Chargers, Raiders, Chiefs, and Broncos are all formidable opponents.
The Colts and Titans are good teams in the AFC South, while the Bills have a favorable schedule in the AFC East. Ultimately, the odds of a team going undefeated in the 2022-23 NFL season are extremely low.
