A look at the season win totals for the upcoming NFL season for the Buffalo Bills and Philadelphia Eagles
The NFL season started last night with the Hall of Fame game and there is no time like now to look at NFL betting futures and team win totals. I team up with another top handicapper, Chip Chirimbes, on the OSGA YouTube Channel, as we each share a pair of NFL regular season win totals predictions.
If you are an NFL bettor, the NFL preseason is a great time to look at team win totals for the regular season. This is one area of sports betting that can produce significant rewards. However, these wagers are for the patient gamblers only, as NFL futures for season win totals will take more than four months to cash in on. This year there is another factor to consider, the 17 game season.
We look at the season win totals for the Philadelphia Eagles and Buffalo Bills.
Currently, the season win total for Philadelphia at the top online sportsbooks is all over the place. We found a low for the Eagles at six at BetOnline and a high for their number at BookMaker, which has seven wins posted. Let's face it, this is going to be a tough year for the Eagles. The recipe for success in the NFL is not a brand new coaching staff with Jalen Hurts running the show on the field for a team that went 4-12 last season. But, this is the NFC East where the top team is the Dallas Cowboys, projected by oddsmakers to win 9 or so games. Unfortunately, the Philadelphia Eagles have a lot to fix in 2021 and I predict under 6.5 wins for them this year.
Chip takes a in-depth look at the Buffalo Bills season win total. Last season Ross cashed the OVER on the season win total for Buffalo, who stormed into the playoffs with a 13-3 record. Currently the Bills season win total is set at eleven at BetOnline, while sitting at low 10.5 at several sharp sportsbooks, like Heritage Sports and BookMaker. Buffalo has been on the rise for several years, but their schedule against the NFC is versus the NFC South, where the Bills have gone just 5-11 in the last 16 games. And here in Bills country, upstate New York, we feel that anything short of the Super Bowl this year would be a step back. After all, the Bills made it to the AFC Championship game a year ago, only to get smoked by the Kansas City Chiefs.
Chip thinks the number here is a little low, especially at the betting shops who really define the line. And that strikes a chord with handicappers that have been doing it as long as we have. He feels like the bookies are begging the public to hammer the over. He may be right and has some additional commentary in the video below.
