NFL Regular Season Wins Odds: Broncos and 49ers Lead the Pack
OVER: Atlanta is a very good regular season team and a well-oil machine that will easily win over 10 games this year.
Carolina Panthers: O/U 7.5
OVER: Cam Newton and the Panthers struggle last season and still managed to produce a 9-7 record. The trouble for Carolina this year is that they have the toughest schedule in all of football.
Chicago Bears: O/U 8.5
OVER: The Bears only have to go 9-7 to win this wager, and even if Jay Cutler gets hurt like he always does, the team should still be able to stumble their way into an over.
Dallas Cowboys: O/U 8.5
UNDER: Every year is supposed to be the year for the Dallas Cowboys—NFL fans will believe it when they see it.
Denver Broncos: O/U 11.5
OVER: The Broncos have the easiest schedule in all of football. And even if they didn’t, they still have Payton Manning—the greatest regular season QB of all-time. Manning can sleep walk into 12 wins.
Green Bay Packers: O/U 10.5
UNDER: The Packers lost a few offensive weapons, did not upgrade the defensive and spend most of the offseason listening to people trash Aaron Rodgers.
Houston Texans: O/U 10.5
UNDER: The Texans got exposed toward the end of the season. Expect the team to still be very good, but take a small step back.
Indianapolis Colts: O/U 8.5
OVER: The Colts went 11-5 under rookie sensation Andrew Luck. But even if he hits a sophomore slump during his second year in the league, winning nine games is not too difficult of a task.
Kansas City Chiefs: O/U 7.5
UNDER: The Chiefs have to go 8-8 in order to win this bet. The question to wonder about is whether Alex Smith and a couple of rookies are really worth a six game improvement?
New England Patriots: O/U 11
PUSH: The Patriots are the Patriots and could win 10 games without even trying. However, an 11-5 season seems about right for their schedule.
San Francisco 49ers: O/U 11
OVER: Improved on defense—check. Improved on offensive (simple by getting rid of Alex Smith and the quarterback controversy)—check. Expect 13-3 out of the Niners.
