Are you ready for some football?
The 2019 NFL regular season win totals are on the board at the DraftKings Sportsbook app.
One of the most popular props to bet on in the offseason at New Jersey gambling sites, the lines are a projection of each team’s wins in the coming season.
Bettors have to decide whether the team will win more or less than the over/under set by the oddsmakers.
2019 NFL season win totals
|Green Bay Packers||9|
|Kansas City Chiefs||10.5|
|Los Angeles Chargers||9.5|
|Los Angeles Rams||10.5|
|New England Patriots||11|
|New Orleans Saints||10.5|
|New York Giants||5.5|
|New York Jets||7.5|
|San Francisco 49ers||7.5|
|Tampa Bay Buccaneers||6.5|
Not surprisingly, the Super Bowl champion New England Patriots are the team that’s pegged with the highest win total on the board with 11 wins.
The franchise has won at least 11 games in nine straight seasons.
At the other end of the spectrum is the Miami Dolphins, who have the lowest win total at just 4.5 games.
What about the NY Giants?
One of the most talked about over/unders is sure to be the New York Giants, who have opened up at 5.5. That’s among the lowest in the NFL.
The much-maligned franchise started last season with just one win in their first eight games but ended up finishing 4-4 over their final eight contests.
However, they traded away star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. in the offseason while losing pass rusher Olivier Vernon (trade) and Landon Collins (free agency). That removes the team’s top receiver, leading pass rusher, and leading tackler from the equation.
At the same time, the Giants did bring in wideout Golden Tate, rusher Markus Golden, and safety Antoine Bethea.
The Giants are pinning their hopes on quarterback Eli Manning, who management insists is not a fading commodity, even though the stats show otherwise.
If they can rebuild their offensive line, though, run the ball and protect him, getting over 5.5 wins is a possibility.
The chances for the NY Jets
As for the other New York team – the Jets – they are on the board with a win total of 7.5. That marks the first time in three seasons that the Jets have been projected to win more games than the Giants.
The Jets had far more cap space to work with in the offseason, which allowed them to maneuver much more freely than the Giants.
A large chunk of that cap went to running back Le’Veon Bell, who is expected to be a huge relief for second-year quarterback Sam Darnold. The Jets couldn’t run the ball consistently last season, averaging just 101.4 rushing yards per game (26th) while compiling just 11 rushing touchdowns (23rd).
When you remove their 323-yard performance against the Denver Broncos, this team rushed for just 86.6 rushing yards per game in their other 15 contests.
The Jets also added Jamison Crowder, who should serve as an excellent slot receiver for Darnold. And they boosted their defense with the signing of C.J. Mosley, who is a four-time Pro Bowler.
The Jets also have the No. 3 pick in the upcoming NFL Draft, so their roster will still get another infusion of high-end talent.
The concern is that the Jets won just four games last season and much of their future success is contingent on the growth of Darnold, who had an up-and-down season as a rookie.
The good news is he should have a much stronger supporting cast going forward. Can the Jets hit the over? It’s possible.
Philadelphia Eagles and a battle for the NFC East
Some other intriguing regular season win totals to take note of are the ones in the NFC East.
The Philadelphia Eagles are on the DraftKings board at 9.5, which is a half-game more than the Dallas Cowboys, who won the division.
The Eagles offseason included picking up wideout DeSean Jackson for peanuts and acquiring running back Jordan Howard.
This offense struggled with Carson Wentz under center in 2018 but the hope is that these pieces, along with Alshon Jeffery and Zach Ertz, provide Wentz with more support.
As for the Cowboys, their regular season win total is at nine.
Remember that Dallas started the season just 3-5 last year before winning six of their final seven games. They’ll now have a full season with wideout Amari Cooper, who’s acquisition seemingly sparked the team’s turnaround.
However, they missed out on free safety Earl Thomas and didn’t do a whole lot in free agency.
With head coach Jason Garrett in the final year of his contract, it still figures to be a nervous year for the Cowboys.
Other 2019 NFL season win totals to consider
Some other interesting regular season win totals to note include the Oakland Raiders, who opened at six wins. They acquired Antonio Brown in the offseason and signed wideout Tyrell Williams, so Jon Gruden is hoping to put forth a much better product in his second season back in the NFL.
And what about the other three heavy-hitters who tried to outlast the Patriots last year?
The Los Angeles Rams, who lost to the Patriots in the Super Bowl, and the Kansas City Chiefs, who lost to the Patriots in the AFC Championship Game, both open at Draftkings Sportsbook with the second-highest numbers at 10.5.
The New Orleans Saints, who lost in the NFC Championship Game, also opened up at 10.5.
