My pick for division 1 is Surrey very strong seam attack probably best in the division and now they have signed Stoneman and Borthwich have a really strong batting lineup.
My pick for division 2 is notts or kent, notts have the bowling attack to skittle any team out. Reason for kent..... Darren Stevens takes wickets and scores runs.

I'd favour notts, purely on the schedule. They play 14 games now in the league, and there's 10 sides in div 2. They play a lot of the weaker sides twice. Some bowlers on show for a Div 2 game at Durham today - Ball, Pattinson and Gurney for Notts and Rushy, Onions and Wood for Durham!

We are at the end of a controversial 2017 County season which saw the Division 1 Championship being won easily by rank outsiders Essex who were 21's with Bet365 at the start of the season. Worcestershire won Division 2 and they were 8.5's with Bet365. Favourites Notts did go up, but not as expected Champions. Relegated were Warks and Middx.

There were plenty of what might have beens!
