2020 NFL Regular Season Win Totals
It won’t be long before the 2020 NFL season kicks off. Bettors looking to capitalize in the futures market can take advantage of some of the regular season NFL win totals. Some surprising numbers make for some outstanding value.
The defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs are set at 11.5 and have won at least 12 games in three of the last four seasons. Is there some better value than the Chiefs?
Betting 2020 NFL Team Wins
The Jaguars have the lowest projected win total in 2020. The Jags play in the AFC South, which typically beats each other up throughout the course of a season. Last season, Jacksonville went 2-4 in the division. They’re shaping up to be a great source for NFL picks this season.
With Gardner Minshew now cemented in at quarterback, the Jags should be able to at least replicate that 2-4 division mark. Even if they go 1-5 as they did in 2018, the Jags have one of the easiest schedules in the NFL in 2020.
There are games against Miami, Cincinnati, Detroit, Cleveland, and Chicago. Only the game with the Bengals is on the road. The Jags should win at least five games in 2020 as they have done in each of the past three seasons.
PREDICTION: Jacksonville OVER 4.5 Wins
The big news in Arizona this offseason was the trade that netted the Cardinals one of the NFL’s top wide receivers in DeAndre Hopkins. Now, reigning NFL Rookie of the Year Kyler Murray has a legitimate No. 1 receiver and an opportunity to make some bank with NFL win totals.
If the Cardinals continue to improve on defense, there is no question head coach Kliff Kingsbury’s team can improve on last year’s win total of five. Can the Cardinals hit eight?
Arizona has the 10th-easiest 2020 schedule. After opening the season at San Francisco, the Cardinals have four straight winnable games against Washington, Detroit, Carolina, and the New York Jets. The Cardinals get Miami at home and the New York Giants on the road.
If Arizona duplicates last year’s 2-4 NFC West Division mark, they easily surpass 7.5 wins.
PREDICTION: Arizona OVER 7.5 Wins
TAMPA BAY (9.5)
All the hype in Tampa Bay, of course, is over QB Tom Brady joining the Bucs along with his former New England teammate TE Rob Gronkowski, and online sportsbooks are loving it. The Bucs win totals jumped dramatically with the signing of Brady and now sits at 9.5.
Tampa Bay has the 10th-most difficult schedule in the league making getting to ten wins difficult. Division wins will be hard to come by with New Orleans, an improving Atlanta, and Christian McCaffrey in Carolina. Even at 2-4 in the division, can the Bucs get eight more wins from the remainder of their schedule?
The Bucs do have winnable games with the Bears, Giants, Raiders, and Lions; but all four of those games are on the road. Tampa Bay also crosses over to face Kansas City and Minnesota. Even with Brady at the helm of the offense, the Bucs defense is still suspect.
PREDICTION: Tampa Bay UNDER 9.5 Wins
The Titans locked in the core of their roster that led them to the AFC championship game last season, just missing out on the Super Bowl. Quarterback Ryan Tannehill and NFL leading rusher Derrick Henry return. The Titans also have the fifth-easiest strength of schedule in 2020.
In the AFC South, the Titans should at least get three wins meaning they need to find six more. Tennessee does play Minnesota, Buffalo, Baltimore, and Green Bay; but the Titans should be able to get their six wins in games with the Bengals, Bears, Jaguars, Broncos, Browns, and Lions.
