NFL 2021: NFC South team-by-team predictions, best bets, odds and picks

NFL 2021: NFC South team-by-team predictions, best bets, odds and picks

The NFC South is set to be one of the most successful divisions in the NFL again in 2021, with the Buccaneers and Saints looking particularly strong once more. Superstars Tom Brady and Alvin Kamara will be going to work, and our free NFL picks for the NFC South are looking HOT as NFL Week 1 edges closer by the day!

After the Saints topped the division in 2020, before the Bucs went on to win the Super Bowl, there are understandably high expectations for the NFC South, especially when you throw in one of the best running backs in the league, in the form of the Panthers' Christian McCaffrey.

Get the best NFL betting picks all season long at Dimers.com. Otherwise, let our advanced predictive analytics models do the hard work for you by visiting the Quick Picks page

Here are the NFL Futures bets we're throwing down for the NFC South ⏬


Atlanta Falcons

NFL Week 1 Matchup: Eagles vs. Falcons

Super Bowl 2021 Win Probability: 1.3%

Super Bowl 2021 Odds: +12500 (BetMGM)

The Falcons went 4-12 last season and now they come into 2021 with their eyes on improvement and a wins total line of 7.5.

It would take a huge effort to double their wins year on year (even with the extra game on the schedule) and although they've drafted a generational TE in Kyle Pitts, we're happy to lay down an Over Under bet and take UNDER at plus money!

Dimers' Suggested Bet:
UNDER 7.5 total wins (+110)

Carolina Panthers

NFL Week 1 Matchup: Jets vs. Panthers

Super Bowl 2021 Win Probability: 1.1%

Super Bowl 2021 Odds: +8000 (BetMGM)

The Comeback Player of the Year looks set to be hotly contested this year but some of the best value out there can be found on Christian McCaffrey.

The star running back had a breakout season in 2019 with 15 TDs and 1,387 rushing yards. If he can get back to those numbers (we think he can) then his odds will come in a lot from +600 throughout the course of the season. Look for him to be scoring touchdowns from NFL Week 1 onwards.

Dimers' Suggested Bet:
Christian McCaffrey: CPOTY (+600)

New Orleans Saints

NFL Week 1 Matchup: Packers vs. Saints

Super Bowl 2021 Win Probability: 2.7%

Super Bowl 2021 Odds: +4000 (BetMGM)

The Saints finished 2020 with a 12-4 record last season before falling to Brady and the Bucs in the Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs.

Even though they've lost Drew Brees, Taysom Hill showed a lot of good signs last year and frankly, any team with Alvin Kamara is going to make a serious claim for a playoff spot!

Dimers' Suggested Bet:
To make the playoffs (+110)

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

NFL Week 1 Matchup: Cowboys vs. Bucs

Super Bowl 2021 Win Probability: 10.6%

Super Bowl 2021 Odds: +650 (BetMGM)

The Bucs come in to the season with a massive target on their back, but that's nothing new for Tom Brady.

Having read that Tampa's odds have already halved from +1200 to +600, there's not a whole lot of value there! Which is why we're taking SB LV hero Rob Gronkowski to go UNDER 4.5 regular season touchdowns, with the expectation that he'll ramp it up for the postseason again.

Dimers' Suggested Bet:
Rob Gronkowski UNDER 4.5 TDS (+115)
