Among division leaders, Washington received the biggest odds increase to win their division after a huge Week 14 win -- and a Giants loss -- according to PointsBet sportsbook

Despite sporting identical records to start Week 14, Washington trailed New York in the divisional standings thanks to the Giants' head-to-head tiebreaker advantage. Washington's odds to win the NFC East sat at +150. 

Washington's 23-15 victory over San Francisco, paired with New York's loss to Arizona, resulted in the Burgundy and Gold's odds bumping all the way up to -286.

On the other hand, the Giants saw their odds decrease from -150 to +425.

Philadelphia's upset win over the Saints saw the biggest overall odds jump of +1400 to +600.

Washington's odds to win the division was the largest such increase across the entire NFL. Likewise, New York's decrease was also the most significant drop.

That's an exciting development for a franchise that hasn't made the postseason since 2015. Other interesting developments across the league included the AFC South divisional winner race, as the Titans bolstered their stronghold on first place in an easy win over Jacksonville. Still, the victory barely boosted their odds which went down from -164 before their win to -154 as the Colts also took care of business against the Raiders, but remained at +130. 

 

Additionally, the NFC West had an interesting development as the Los Angeles Rams' dominant Thursday night win over New England wasn't enough to distance themselves from Seattle, who gave themselves a fighting chance with a bounceback win against the Jets. 

There were just two teams to clinch their division with three games remaining in the 2020 NFL regular season. The Green Bay Packers clinched their second-straight NFC North title with a win over Detroit, and Kanas City captured their fifth-straight AFC West title with a win over the Dolphins.
