Teams With The Best NFL Win Total Betting Odds
Indianapolis Colts (8.5)
Despite their now, forgettable struggles a year ago, I’m going on record to say that the Indianapolis Colts may be the most ‘sure thing’ in all of football as far as their 2016 win total odds are concerned! Prior to winning ‘just’ eight games in 2015, despite being expected to be legitimate Super Bowl title contenders, Indianapolis was a virtual perennial double-digit win team racked up 10 wins or more in each of the previous three seasons. The Colts addressed their offensive line needs by drafting center Ryan Kelly with the 18th pick in the first round while grabbing two other offensive linemen in the draft to help protect franchise quarterback Andrew Luck.
While Indy now has very real competition in the form of the Houston Texans in the AFC South and faces a fairly difficult schedule in 2016, I like the Colts to easily top their low 2016 win total odds while finishing at 10-6 at the very least. Lest anyone forget, the Colts managed to win eight games last season despite the fact that Luck missed nine games because of injuries.
The Pick: Indianapolis Over 8.5 wins
Arizona Cardinals (9.5)
The Arizona Cardinals have won at least 10 games in three straight seasons under widely-respected head coach Bruce Arians and I see no reason to believe they won’t reach that figure again in 2016. The Cards have a fantastic defense that ranked seventh of better across the board last season and one that could be even better in 2016 thanks to the addition of gifted defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche. While the former Ole Miss star went 29th overall, that fact was mostly because of off-field concerns, not his on-field play.
Arizona also ranked firs in total offense last season and second in scoring and should finish in the top 10 again thanks to the emergence of young back David Johnson and reinvigorated play of veteran running back Chris Johnson. Sure…one injury to fragile quarterback Carson Palmer could derail Arizona’s season, but isn’t that the case for every team and their respective starting signal-caller?
I’ve got Carson Palmer and company going 12-4 at best, but more likely, 11-5. Either way, the Cardinals easily play OVER their 2016 win total odds.
The Pick: Arizona Over 9.5 wins
Baltimore Ravens (7.5)
The Ravens were limited to just five wins in 2015 as Joe Flacco and seemingly every other key member of their team was injured in what turned out to be a completely injury-riddled campaign. No matter, I can easily see the Ravens winning at least eight games in 2016! The last time the Ravens failed to win at least eight games was back in 2007 in former head coach Brian Billick’s final season before the franchise hired current head coach John Harbaugh.
The Ravens added some young players in this year’s NFL Draft that will contribute right way, including offensive tackle Joe Stanley, the sixth overall pick in the draft. Baltimore has had just five losing seasons since 1998, making them a virtual lock selection against their 2016 win total odds.
The Pick: Baltimore Over 7.5 wins
New England Patriots – 10.5 wins
Sure, Tom Brady may be facing a four-game suspension, but I still don’t see any way the Patriots fail to reach the 11-win mark in 2016, mostly because they ply a pair of mediocre AFC East division rivals in Miami and Buffalo and one team in the early stages of a new rebuilding plan in the New York Jets. With a return to full health from wide receivers Danny Amendola and Julian Edelman and the addition of rookie cornerback Cyrus Jones with the 29th pick in the second round, I see no reason why Tom Brady won’t lead New England to at least 11 wins in 2016. The Pats have won 12 games or more in each of the last six seasons while reaching the double-digit win mark in every season since 2003!
The Pick: New England over 10.5 wins
Kansas City Chiefs (9.0)
Sure, Andy Reid never won the ‘big one’ in jus over a decade coaching the Philadelphia Eagles and he also hasn’t led his current Kansas City Chiefs to the Promised Land in his three seasons at the helm. What Reid has done throughout the course of his career is record double-digit wins seasons like they’re going out of style! Reid recorded eight double digit win seasons in 14 years in Philadelphia.
Kansas City won an impressive 11 games last season despite not having dual threat running back Jamal Charles for virtually the entire 2015 campaign. Reid has led K.C. to nine wins or more in each of his three seasons leading the Midwest-based franchise and are a virtual lock to reach 10 wins in 2016, especially with Denver likely taking a step backwards after winning it all!
Kansas City finished the 2015 season ranked inside the top 10 in every meaningful defensive statistical category and are lock to reach 10 wins in 2016 if you ask me!
The Pick: Kansas City over Nine wins
San Francisco 49ers (5.0)
By now, everyone knows the Niners made a huge mistake by jettisoning former head coach Jim Harbaugh despite the now Michigan Wolverines head coach turning them into instant winners. After last season’s failed experiment under Jim Tomsula, Frisco is turning to former Eagles head coach Chip Kelly to get them back on track. While I don’t believe Kelly will turn his team into an instant title contender, I do believe he will lead the Niners to at least six wins, no matter who’s under center this coming season.
Kelly managed to win 10 games in each of his first two seasons in the City of Brotherly Love before falling to just six wins this past season before getting fired with one game remaining in the regular season. Kelly is an offensive mastermind that will undoubtedly help the Niners reach a half-dozen wins in 2016, mostly by outscoring their opponents in 2016.
The Pick: San Francisco Over 5 wins.
