The toughest division in the NFL is thought to be the NFC East and the win totals in NFL betting definitely reflect that opinion.
Dallas is the favorite in football betting to win the division but the three other teams could all finish with winning records in 2010.
NFL betting odds list the win total on Dallas at 10.5. That is tied with San Diego, New Orleans and Indianapolis for the highest win total in the league. Although Dallas has a win total of 10.5, bettors are not totally convinced yet as the under is getting action at -150. The Cowboys won 11 games last season but the NFC East is thought to be even better overall than it was a year ago. Dallas has an explosive offensive led by quarterback Tony Romo and a solid defense but they still have Wade Phillips as head coach so nothing is guaranteed.
Both the New York Giants and Philadelphia Eagles have win totals of 8.5. The Eagles won 11 games last season but they are going with Kevin Kolb at quarterback as Donovan McNabb is now in Washington. The Eagles might actually be better off with Kolb but the jury is still out. The Giants slipped to 8-8 last season but they have the talent to rebound with a winning season in 2010. Their win total is 8.5 with the over at -120. It is a key season for head coach Tom Coughlin who is now feeling the heat in New York.
The team that is expected to improve the most in the division over last year is the Washington Redskins. They have a new head coach in Mike Shanahan and a new starting quarterback in Donovan McNabb. The Redskins won just four games last year but their win total for 2010 is 7.5. The odds makers are definitely expecting Shanahan and McNabb to make a huge difference in 2010.
The win totals in the NFC East are getting a lot of attention. The Cowboys are considered Super Bowl contenders, the Giants are in a must-win year for Coughlin, the Eagles have a quarterback in Kolb who could be a star and Washington has McNabb. Bettors have a lot to consider in the NFC East with the win totals and that should make for exciting football betting action in 2010.
