NFL Betting Advice for 2016 Season Win Total

Posted by Jordan Walterss on July 7, 2016 in

Teams will start reporting to NFL training camps in less than three weeks, and the first exhibition game is barely a month away. Being as this is the Twitter generation, here are my over/under NFL betting picks for each team — listed by division — for the coming season and 140 characters or less reason why.

NFL Betting Advice for 2016 Season Win Total


Buffalo Bills: Push on 8. The under is a -130 favorite, but I like the Bills’ running game and defense. The NFL’s longest playoff drought continues.

Miami Dolphins: Under 7 at +110. The Fins have a huge question mark at running back.

New England Patriots: Under 10.5 at +120. This is simply because of Tom Brady’s four-game suspension. Pats will finish 10-6.

New York Jets: Over 8 at +120. This is only if the Jets do re-sign QB Ryan Fitzpatrick as many still expect.


Baltimore Ravens: Over 8.5 at +105. No team had worse luck or injury fortune in 2015. Thus Ravens are due good luck in 2016.

Cincinnati Bengals: Over 9.5 at -130. Bengals have most all-around talent in division and should win it.

Cleveland Browns: Under 4.5 at even. This is quite simply the least-talented roster in the NFL. Browns maybe win 3.

Pittsburgh Steelers: Under 10.5 at +105. If Big Ben, Antonio Brown and Le’Veon Bell stay healthy, it’s NFL’s best offense. But defensively?


Houston Texans: Over 8.5 at -125. I guess I’m a believer in new starting quarterback Brock Osweiler.

Indianapolis Colts: Under 9.5 at -120. Which Andrew Luck will we see in 2016? And can he stay healthy?

Jacksonville Jaguars: Over 7.5 at -120. This team has some really good young talent and is on the rise.

Tennessee Titans: Under 5.5 at +135. A few building blocks like QB Marcus Mariota but still lacking much.


Denver Broncos: Over 9 at -125. Broncos won’t win another Super Bowl but should reach 10 wins with that defense.

Kansas City Chiefs: Under 9.5 at -105. Just not a fan of QB Alex Smith and that offense.

Oakland Raiders: Over 8.5 at -125. Raiders are a lot like Jaguars — on the way up. Oakland could win this division.

San Diego Chargers: Under 7 at -105. Bolts have Philip Rivers and not much else in perhaps their final season in San Diego.


Dallas Cowboys: Under 9.5 at -130. As usual, Cowboys are overvalued just because they are America’s Team.

New York Giants: Over 8 at -140. Offense should be great if a running game is found. Will all the defensive additions solve that side of ball?

Philadelphia Eagles: Under 7.5 at -165. How long until we see rookie quarterback Carson Wentz?

Washington Redskins: Under 7.5 at -115. Their division title — and Kirk Cousins‘ play — was a fluke in 2015.


Chicago Bears: Under 7.5 at -120. Bears are on right track under coach John Fox an GM Ryan Pace but won’t be playoff contenders until at least 2017.

Detroit Lions: Under 7 at -105. The Lions are going to miss Calvin Johnson, the best receiver in franchise history.

Green Bay Packers: Over 10.5 at -165. Packers have No. 1 receiver Jordy Nelson back from injury and they will take back the NFC North title.

Minnesota Vikings: Under 9.5 at even money. This one’s tight — I see Vikings going 9-7. If only they had a better QB.


Atlanta Falcons: Under 7.5 at -135. Julio Jones might be NFL’s best receiver. But Falcons don’t have much else.

Carolina Panthers: Over 10.5 at -115. It’s often tough for Super Bowl losers to return to playoffs the following season. Panthers should, though.

New Orleans Saints: Under 7 at -115. Saints were almost historically bad on defense in 2015. They won’t be much better in 2016.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Under 7.5 at -130. Will Bucs regret firing coach Lovie Smith after signs of progress in 2015?

Arizona Cardinals: Over 9.5 at -150. Cards are a Super Bowl contender if Carson Palmer stays healthy. They are a six-win team without him.

Los Angeles Rams: Under 7.5 at -135. There will be growing pains for No. 1 overall pick Jared Goff.

San Francisco 49ers: Under 5.5 at -115. The Niners are essentially the Cleveland Browns of the NFC.

Seattle Seahawks: Over 10.5 at -135 on betting lines. Might this be the last Super Bowl hurrah for this group? Some key players are getting up there in age.
