The defending Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams highlight a stacked NFC West. The Rams currently sit at +125 to repeat as division champs. L.A.’s offseason was highlighted by spending a ton of money; the usual for the organization since their move to L.A.

General manager Les Snead used the offseason to put QB Matthew Stafford in the best position to succeed. By extending LT Joseph Noteboom, adding another weapon in Allen Robinson and of course signing Stafford to a mega-extension, the pressure will be on for L.A. to succeed.

Based on the odds, the biggest challenger for the division title will be the NFC runner-up, San Francisco (+175). The 49ers have had an interesting offseason in their own right. Many have questioned the handling of the Jimmy G vs. Trey Lance situation. The second-year QB was officially named the starter for the 2022 opener against Chicago. 

With that decision, it’s a bit baffling as to why the 49ers haven’t already moved Jimmy G. It’s obvious the 49ers could not find a willing trade partner for the nine-year vet. But, instead of releasing Garoppolo, John Lynch decided to bring him back on a team friendly one-year deal. This move raised some questions on the 49ers’ confidence in Lance.

With Lance at the helm, the 49ers have some uncertainty in their 2022 outlook. Lance had a few shaky appearances in 2021. He certainly showed some signs of play-making ability, and all indications are the QB is ready to take a big stride in 2022.

If you think the NFC West race is a two-team battle, think again. The Cardinals are luring not far behind at just +350 to win the division. After an 11-6 record in 2022, Arizona is well-positioned to make some real noise in the division race.

2022 NFC West Champion Prediction: Rams | +125 at BetMGM

The Rams have won the NFC West three out of Sean McVay’s five seasons in L.A. After a few close attempts, they finally got over the hump and brought a Super Bowl to the franchise for the first time since ‘99.

To me, it’s clear that McVay found his perfect counterpart in Matthew Stafford. A QB with the arm talent of Stafford is something that McVay has been searching for in order to run his scheme to the fullest. With Stafford and McVay hitting and increasing their chemistry, along with high-profile role players, the Rams will be a tough force to overcome in the NFC West.

The Challenger: Cardinals | +350 at BetMGM

I’m rolling with the Cardinals as the main challenger to the Rams for the top spot in the NFC West. The Cardinals started 7-0 last season, although faltering badly toward the end of the season. Their 7-0 start was all but a fluke; winning games at L.A. and Tennessee.

In Year 4 of the Kliff Kingsbury-Kyler Murray experience, I’m expecting the Cardinals up and coming core to build off their experience and sustain their success much better in 2022. 

With the 49ers’ uncertainty at the QB spot, I don’t love the value you’d get on them to win the division at +175. The Cardinals’ young talented squad is in a better win-now position to knock off the Rams for the NFC West throne.
