When it comes to these bets, picks are based not purely on whatever the projected total is set at, but on the value that comes with the odds for that total. Below, we'll go through each division and provide a couple of NFL wins predictions for teams in each one.
NFC East Record Predictions 2020
- Dallas Cowboys Over 9.5 Wins (-150)
Dallas has finally moved on from Jason Garrett to Mike McCarthy and is hopeful the boatload of talent in that locker room will finally result in an over .500 record and a division title.
The Cowboys don't only have a new coach and tons of talent, they had a terrific draft which included WR CeeDee Lamb and CB Trevon Diggs. They've also got some winnable games outside the NFC East including Atlanta, Cleveland, Arizona, and Cincinnati. All of this combines for a 10-win season for the Cowboys.
- New York Giants Under 6 Wins (+103)
This is not meant to be disrespectful to Big Blue, there may just be a little bit of value going under here, as the number has already moved from 6.5 to 6.
Without veteran Nate Solder on the offensive line, the Giants are going to once again struggle to protect Daniel Jones and create space for Saquon Barkley.
New York is the clear third team in the NFC East and even if it manages a 2-4 divisional record, I'm not sure there's enough wins to cover this number. This feels like it could be a push number but if you had to choose, go under at plus-money for your Giants over under win totals pick.
NFC North Win Total Predictions
- Green Bay Packers Over 8.5 (-137)
The NFC North is once again expected to be somewhat competitive, but we still think this number for Green Bay is a bit low. The Packers' 13-win season last year may have been a bit misleading but is this team really FIVE full wins worse than that group?
The Packers (along with Minnesota) are clearly one of the top two teams in the NFC North and should at least go 4-2 inside the division. Add on the fact that there are several other winnable games on the schedule to reach nine, and it definitely should happen.
- Chicago Bears Under 7.5 (+107)
There are more questions than answers in the Windy City, and it's leading us to lean under at plus-money when it comes to Bears win total predictions. The Bears did manage 8-8 last season but consider that this total started at 8.5 and quickly moved down to 7.5, which is a sign of sharp action on the under.
One big thing is that we still don't know whether it's Nick Foles or Mitch Trubisky under center. Either it's a below-average QB or a guy learning a new system without any real preseason. We think this could mean a slow start and seven wins or less for Chicago.
NFC South Win Total Predictions
- Tampa Bay Buccaneers Under 9.5 Wins (+103)
I am of the belief that both Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski have something left in the tank and will be motivated to play well for their new team. With thwart said, having no preseason to practice the new playbook could mean a learning curve for this very deep offense.
Tampa Bay should be able to get itself going eventually and rack up a few wins but they still have the Saints and Falcons to compete with. Overall, we just think 9.5 is a bit too high and this feels like a 9-7 campaign for the Bucs.
- Atlanta Falcons Over 7.5 Wins (+100)
There have been few teams as disappointing as Atlanta in crescent seasons but with all that talent on offense, we are banking on a .500 season at even money. The awful 1-7 start put a damper on last year to begin with, but our expectation is that this team plays closer to its level from the beginning.
The worry is the Falcons do need to compete with New Orleans and Tampa Bay in its division, plus have plenty of tough games outside of it. If they can go at least 3-3 in the NFC South, games against Las Vegas, Detroit, and Chicago are ones they'll need to win in order to have a chance.
NFC West Win Total Picks
- Los Angeles Rams Over 8 Wins (-125)
After following up a Super Bowl appearance with a disappointing 9-7 season, the total is set even lower for Los Angeles and we can't help but take notice.
Even if the Rams aren't on the level of San Francisco and Seattle, they're benefitting here from all the hype surrounding the Arizona Cardinals, whom they are still better than.
It's not a given that this team can go over .500 considering all the pieces it lost, but we're banking on people being a little too excited about the rest of the division and forgetting all the talent on Sean McVay's roster.
- Seattle Seahawks Over 9.5 (+110)
Seattle has at least 10 wins in eight of their last nine seasons and I don't see how they don't reach this mark once again. The total of 9.5 has stayed the same since the addition of safety Jamal Adams, which only makes us feel even better about this selection.
Outside of its tough division, the Seahawks have plenty of winnable games against the NFC East and AFC East. The defense isn't what it used to be but having an offense led by Russell Wilson and featuring the likes of DK Metcalf is never a bad sign. Take the over once again for your Seahawks win total prediction.
AFC East Win Total Predictions
- Buffalo Bills Over 8.5 (-143)
The Bills won 10 games en route to a playoff appearance last year and even though the Jets and Dolphins aren't all that much improved and the Patriots regressed, Buffalo's over-under is set at just 8.5 wins.
While this team definitely has flaws, it's either the top or second-best team in the division. The problem is that Buffalo has a pretty difficult schedule outside the division, so it needs to go 5-3 or better in the AFC East. From there, the Raiders, Chargers, Cardinals, and Broncos represent four of the games this team can win to get to nine.
- Miami Dolphins Under 6.5 (-134)
It was difficult to decide whether to take the NY Jets under 6.5 or Miami at the same number, but we'll go with the Dolphins. New York should have its fair share of struggles too but Miami went into the offseason with plenty of holes and will begin the 2020 campaign with very fe of them filled.
With matchups against the NFC West and AFC West, we're not sure how the Dolphins quite get to 7-9 or better, whether veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick or newly-drafted QB Tua Tagovailoa plays.
AFC South Win Total Picks
- Indianapolis Colts Over 9 Wins (-110)
The Colts were 6-4 last season before things went south and they finished the season 7-9. This time around, we think they start strong and keep it going well enough to finish at 9-7 or better in a weakened AFC South.
The Colts are still flawed but Philip Rivers under center is an improvement, and the schedule isn't as tough as what some other teams are dealing with. Nine seems right around the perfect number but the first half of the schedule features some low-hanging fruit such as the Jaguars, Jets, Bengals, and Lions. They can get to nine.
- Jacksonville Jaguars Under 4.5 Wins (+103)
Five wins aren't too many so we aren't super comfortable going with such a low under, but our expectations for Jacksonville are not high. The other three teams in the AFC South are all superior, and we're hard-pressed to see a record above 2-6 inside the division.
There are a few weaker teams such as the Jets, Bengals, and Lions in there, and they've upgraded on defense, but it's hard to see where the wins come from for the Jaguars.
AFC North Win Total Predictions
- Pittsburgh Steelers Over 9 (-121)
The Steelers managed eight wins in a completely upside-down season that featured multiple backup quarterbacks and tons of drama. With Big Ben is back and apparently healthy, perhaps the offensive production can match what the defense did in 2019.
You do need 10 wins to technically cash on this wager, so we could be looking at another push, but Pittsburgh is the second-best team in this division until Cleveland proves otherwise. Considering the schedule features the NFC East and AFC South, there should be a few victories outside of the AFC North as well.
- Cincinnati Bengals Under 5 Wins
Top overall pick Joe Burrow may very well be a franchise quarterback but without a training camp and preseason going into your rookie year, the learning curve will be bigger than usual. The public is split on this one but after winning just twice last season, we're not sure Burrow alone is worth four wins.
Cincinnati will struggle to play for an entire 60 minutes and even though they'll likely compete in most of them, won't end up with too many wins. The rest of the talent in the division tells us under five is a decent bet for Bengals win total predictions.
AFC West Win Total Predictions
- Kansas City Chiefs Over 11.5 Wins (-121)
This is a pick that you can put your head on the pillow at night comfortably after making. Of course there's a chance that 11.5 is too high, but there are plenty of reasons to believe in the Super Bowl champs to reach 12 wins once again.
They are the clear-cut best team in the AFC West, which always helps. We are probably looking at six wins from inside the division, plus several winnable games against NFC South and AFC East opponents.
This team managed 12-4 last season despite an injury to Mahomes and added to its backfield in the draft. Go over with the Chiefs win total prediction.
- Denver Broncos Over 7.5 (-118)
Like the Chiefs, the public is all over the Broncos hitting the over, and we can't help but jump on board. The Broncos, Chargers, and Raiders are all viewed similarly by oddsmakers, but we see Denver as a notch ahead.
Denver added some pieces on both sides of the ball including dynamic wideout Jerry Jeudy in the draft. If Drew Lock turns out to be what he looked like over the last month of the 2019 season, this team is going .500 with a couple wins from the AFC East and NFC South opponents helping out.
