With the NFL season just around the corner, I thought I'd share a season bet that I've placed for fun.
My idea is to look at all the teams that finished last in their division in the 2018 season. Then, from all eight of those names, I pick out all the teams that hired new head coaches during the off-season and then bet on them to win the division.
There were four qualifying teams for this year. I've put them all in a Lucky 15.
The teams are:
Cincinnati to win the AFC North
NY Jets to win the AFC East
Tampa Bay Buccaneers to win the NFC South
Arizona Cardinals to win the NFC West
As I stated at the start, this is just for fun more than anything else. I know all four of these teams have mountains to conquer this year and beyond.
I'll write about how these teams - and ultimately, the bet - fared once the season has concluded.
