Now that we have officially passed the 2022 NFL Draft, it is time to take a view of the teams and decide which teams will win more or less games than the sportsbooks are offering us.
We have the NFL schedule as well, which is an important factor in determining this stuff. Today, we will be diving into the top bets that you should be making against the NFL Team Totals odds before the season starts.
Using the NFL Total Win Season Win Predictions in Your Forecasting for the Upcoming Season
New York Jets Over 5.5 Wins
This feels like an absolute steal of a wager after the exceptional offseason. General Manager Joe Douglas decided to bolster the offense for second-year quarterback Zack Wilson as he added tight end C.J. Uzomah and bolstered up the offensive line a bit, as well as drafting wide receiver Garrett Wilson, running back Breece Hall, and tight end Jeremy Ruckert as well.
Defensively, the Jets added secondary help by signing safety Jordan Whitehead and drafting cornerback Sauce Gardner. They have to run the AFC North gauntlet to begin the season but should scratch across a couple of wins, and the back-half of their schedule gets easier with teams like the Lions, Jaguars, and Seahawks.
This team has the potential to compete for a Wild Card spot; they definitely will be winning at least six games.
New Orleans Saints Over 7.5 Wins
This number makes me scratch my head as this team only got better and faltered once quarterback Jameis Winston went down with a torn ACL.
However, he has re-signed and is expected to be ready at the beginning of the season and could be a huge threat. They lost Sean Payton as he retired and have Dennis Allen as their new head coach. This team improved a bit in their secondary as they signed Marcus Maye to a deal.
The offense should also drastically improve as wide receiver Michael Thomas is expected to be healthy and play, as well as a first-round pick wide receiver Chris Olave. They also built up the offensive line by selecting offensive tackle Trevor Penning with their additional first-round pick.
This team has a very tough schedule, but they are a top team in the NFC and should be a Wild Card team, if not win the NFC South division. They have four games against Carolina and Atlanta, as well as a match against Seattle. This team seems to be a 8-9 win team so go with the over 7.5 wins.
Arizona Cardinals Under 9.5 Wins
The NFC West is going to remain a struggle to win, but the Arizona Cardinals do not have luck on their side after starting each of the previous two seasons off hot, but eventually faltering and not being able to turn the year around.
They will also be without wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins for six games as he is dealing with a PED suspension.
I do not see Arizona reaching ten wins, so go with the under 9.5 wins.
