2016 NFL Season NFC East Total Wins Odds Prediction

2016 NFL Season NFC East Total Wins Odds Prediction

Written by on April 22, 2016

There’s no other way to say it. The NFC ‘Least’ was an absolute mess in 2016! With the Washington Redskins finishing with a modest 9-7 record to win the division title a year ago, clearly the NFC East has seen better days. Thanks to their collective ineptitude, only one NFC East team is expected to have a realistic shot at recording double digits in victories in 2016 – and it’s not Washington. No matter, thanks to the expert NFL betting lines analysis that you’re about to get on all four NFC East Super Bowl hopefuls, you’re going to find out just how many games each team is going to win this coming season. Okay, with that said, let’s get started.

2016 NFL Season NFC East Total Wins Odds Prediction

Dallas Cowboys (9.0)

The Cowboys (4-12) believe that the return of starting quarterback Tony Romo will get them back to being a legitimate Super Bowl contender after they won just four games last season, but I strongly disagree as the ‘Boys have far too many needs to even think about challenging the most elite teams in the NFC. I’ve got Dallas losing road dates at Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Minnesota, New York and Philadelphia and home games against Cincinnati and Baltimore to finish at 8-8 and just UNDER their 2016 win total odds. The Pick: Dallas 8-8/Under

New York Giants (7.5)

The Giants (6-10) might have missed the playoff in each of the last three seasons, but I still believe they made a big-time boo-boo by dismissing Tom Coughlin and hiring inexperienced offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo to replace the future Hall of Famer. The Giants lost five games by three points or less last season, so clearly they’re not as far from contending as is looks on the surface. I’ve got the G-Men losing road dates against Minnesota, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and Washington while also dropping home games against Baltimore and Cincinnati to finish with a 9-7 record and just Over their 2016 win total figure. The Pick: Giants 9-7/Over

Philadelphia Eagles (7.5)

I’m from Philadelphia and I can honestly say that I believe the Eagles’ (7-9) front office personnel suddenly have no clue how to build a winning football team. I like the hiring of new head coach Doug Pederson and I think he’ll eventually fare well, but the Birds might have put themselves behind an eight-ball as far as the near future is concerned by trading a ton of draft picks to get the No. 2 pick from Cleveland in this year’s draft. I’ve got Philly losing home games against Pittsburgh, Minnesota and Green Bay and road dates against Washington, Dallas, New York, Seattle, Cincinnati and Baltimore to finish at 7-9 and just barely UNDER their 2016 win total odds. The Pick: Philadelphia 7-9/Under

Washington Redskins (7.5)

The Washington Redskins (9-7) played their hearts out for head coach Jay Gruden and quarterback Kirk Cousins, but Washington hasn’t had consecutive winning seasons since 1990-91, so history is clearly against them. I’ve got Washington losing home games against Pittsburgh, Minnesota, Green Bay and Carolina as well as road games against New York, Baltimore, Cincinnati, Dallas, Arizona, Philadelphia and Chicago to finish at either 5-11 or possibly 6-10. Either way, I have the Skins playing UNDER their 2016 win total figure. The Pick: Washington 5-11/Under
