The win total bet is one of the most interesting bets you can find in the NFL. It’s an interesting gauge on what the sportsbook oddsmakers think will happen to certain players. Here’s a few of the most interesting bets to see. These are based on the possible number of wins for a team and whether you feel that team will win more of fewer games.
Seattle Seahawks – 11
The Seattle Seahawks are heavy Super Bowl favorites in the betting odds and are extremely devoted to winning again following their Super Bowl collapse. The acquisition of tight end Jimmy Graham helped to boost their win/loss projection to 11.
New England Patriots – 10.5
Tom Brady’s suspension for the first few games of the season kept the reigning Super Bowl champions from having a better projection. Those games that he will miss include games against Buffalo and Jacksonville, thus ensuring a modest total.
Green Bay Packers – 11
Green Bay has much of its team from last year back. However, wide receiver Jordy Nelson hasn’t trained much in the offseason due to hip surgery.
Denver Broncos – 10
The Denver Broncos are still big favorites in NFL football betting thanks to Peyton Manning’s dynamic offense. There’s still a need to fill in spots in the linebacker and safety positions though. New coach Gary Kubiak will make a big effort to change the team around this year.
The AFC North
The AFC North is expected to be tight this year. This can be evidenced by the win/loss projections for its teams. Baltimore is listed at 9 while Pittsburgh and Cincinnati are both at 8.5. Cleveland is only at 6.5 primarily due to the Browns’ perpetual quarterback issues.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers – 6
Top draft pick Jameis Winston is expected to be heavily scrutinized in the upcoming season. Still, the Buccaneers are only listed at six wins this year.
Who’s At the Bottom?
There are three teams with a projected total of 5.5 wins each:
The Jacksonville Jaguars are hoping that quarterback Blake Bortles will have a breakout season.
The Oakland Raiders are going to rely on a new defense run by coordinator Ken Norton Jr.
If the team’s workout sessions suggest it, the Tennessee Titans will be led by rookie quarterback Marcus Mariota.
