2016 NFL: NFC Season Wins Predictions & Tips

August 11, 2016 by Posted in NFL Tips

2016-NFL-NFC

The first of our two-part NFL Season win totals preview has arrived.

These markets are terrific fun for the punter looking to invest in something they can get enjoyment out of following all season long.

They are not markets we recommend betting too heavily in as it ties your cash up for a long time and the edge is relatively small with very high variance also in play.

With that being said, analysing these totals can give us a great platform for our week to week NFL betting and every so often there is some big enough value to warrant having a bet!

So, here are the NFC teams, the wins total line from the bookies and our thoughts on whether they’ll go under or over!

NFC WEST


TIP: Arizona Cardinals 9.5 wins OVER with $1.65 Crownbet

Very low confidence here. Carson Palmer needs to prove his fitness, the last six games of last season weren’t ideal although the team has improved elsewhere.

TIP: Seattle Seahawks 10.5 wins UNDER with $2.10 William Hill

Marginal play but have to take the unders. We’d be more keen to bet up on the under if their schedule was stronger, looks like some weak opposition for the Hawks.

TIP: Los Angeles Rams 6.5 wins UNDER with $2.47 Sportsbet

If the Hawks and Cardinals win 20 games between them it’ll be tough for LA’s newest team to cover the over. They have a rookie quarterback and they will rely heavily on their running back.

TIP: San Francisco 49ers 5.5 wins UNDER with $1.90 William Hill

This is a really bad Football team in a solid division. Right at the bottom of our league wide power rankings.

NFC EAST

TIP: New York Giants 8.5 OVER with $1.97 Sportsbet

No team has been more impacted by injury over the past three seasons. They’ve added some depth on the defensive side of the ball as well in a wide open division.

TIP: Washington Redskins 7.5 UNDER with $1.90 William Hill

Over-achievers last year when the Cowboys and Giants were luckless. Happy to take the unders.

TIP: Philadelphia Eagles 7.5 UNDER with $1.59 Sportsbet

Transition period for the Eagles so we lean the under, not much value in the price though.

TIP: Dallas Cowboys 9.5 UNDER with $1.87 Sportsbet

Has Tony Romo been hit and injured one too many times? The off-field distractions have started already. If in doubt, lay the Cowboys!

NFC NORTH

TIP: Green Bay Packers 10.5 wins OVER with $1.59 Sportsbet

Predicting a big bounce-back year from Aaron Rodgers. No value in the price though.

TIP: Detroit Lions 7.5 wins OVER with $2.17 Sportsbet

Another low confidence pick, they were marginally unlucky last year though and we’ll take the extra juice and pray for 8 wins!

TIP: Minnesota Vikings 9.5 wins UNDER with $2.03 Sportsbet

We understand the hype about this team but we are not sold on Bridgewater and the odds on the under just push us that way.

TIP: Chicago Bears 7.5 wins UNDER with $1.80 William Hill

Chicago are stuck in no-mans land at the moment, one of the better bets on the under.

NFC SOUTH


TIP: Atlanta Falcons 7.5 wins UNDER with $1.74 William Hill

Not sure what to make of the Falcons who clearly lack depth behind Julio and Matty Ice. Expect they’ll finish third in the division.

TIP: Tampa Bay Buccaneers 7.5 wins OVER with $2.26 Sportsbet

Big improvers this year, we are convinced Famous Jameis is the real deal. Lots of talent on this roster, it all clicks this year. Contenders the following year.

TIP: Carolina Panthers 10.5 wins UNDER with $2.10 Sportsbet

They won the turnover count and converted into defensive touchdowns last year. They are still a touch limited offensively and teams will have plans for them this time around.

TIP: New Orleans Saints 7 wins UNDER with $1.90 William Hill

They lack depth in all sorts of positions. Another slow year predicted in the Big Easy as Brees enters the twilight zone.

BEST BETS?
