Because there is very little certainty surrounding NFL rosters, Vegas has yet to release its projected NFL win totals. However, the site Beyond The Bets has come up with a rough estimate of what those predictions will be. Naturally, this is subject to change because a lot will happen over the next few weeks, but it still provides an interesting snapshot of expectations for the Cowboys this season.
As you would imagine, last year’s cream of the crop lead the way. The over/under on the Packers is 11.5 wins and that’s the highest total in the league. They are followed by the Patriots at 11, the Jets at 10.5, and the Saints, Steelers, Falcons, Chargers, and Ravens all at 10. Right now, I’ll take the Steelers to win under ten ball games. Call it the Super Bowl losers curse. I don’t see them having a good year this year. The Chargers’ prediction also raises an eyebrow.
Currently, the Cowboys’ over/under is at 8.5 wins. I’ll take that bet in a heartbeat. What about you? Is 8.5 wins too low, too high, or just about right?
