Can Andrew Luck add four wins to the Colts record this season? Probably not.


There are only a few hours left until the kickoff of the 2012 NFL season, so now is the time to put in your NFL bets and enjoy some football. We’ve already gone over our AFC and NFC division winner picks, so now its time to bet on regular season wins for a few teams.

Dallas Cowboys: O/U 9 wins: This bet is an absolute free-roll. The Cowboys are always up and down, but there is no way that they will win fewer than 9 games this season. The ‘over’ here is good, you might end up pushing, but the worst Dallas will do this season is 9-7. Take the Over

Houston Texans: O/U 10 wins: The Texans are a really good team and it’s just hard to imagine them going 9-7. Setting the over/under at 10 game seems low here. Houston might be poised for a dominant season and could easily be a 13-3 team. Take the over.

Indianapolis Colts: O/U 5.5: Last year the Colts won two games. Is Andrew Luck really going to be the difference of four games during his rookie season? Maybe, but probably not; you should feel comfortable betting the under here, even though it is not a lock. Take the under.

Kansas City Chiefs: O/U 8 wins: Here is another great number to bet on. In order to lose the Chiefs have to go 9-7, which is a lot to ask from Kansas City. Last year they won 7 games and will probably do so again this season. A best case scenario for the Chiefs would be an 8-8, which is only a push for you. Take the under.

Minnesota Vikings: O/U 6 wins: The Vikings may very well be the worst team in the league this year, especially if Adrian Peterson injury turns out to be worst than we thought. Any thing can happen in the NFL, but its going to be really heard for the Vikings to win 6 games this season, and in order to lose the bet they would have to go 7-9. Take the under.

New Orleans Saints: O/U 10 wins: The Saints are going to have a tough season without head coach Sean Peyton, but will they really go 9-7? Drew Brees alone will get them to 10 wins. They may not be a serious Super Bowl contenders without their head coach, but going 11-5 is definitely within reach. Take the Over

Nice prediction, though i don't agree with the article on the Saints.

So I disagree with you a lot here, I guess :)

Anything can happen but the one I don't see is the Chiefs with a better than 8-8 record.. Colt have a chance to win 6 games.
