2012 Highest and Lowest Season Win Totals

A few of the sportsbooks in the gaming industry have already released their odds for this season's projected win totals for all 32 NFL teams. The general consensus for the Eagles is 'over' or 'under' 10.5 wins which directly coincides with their +110 odds to win the NFC East this season.

The projected win totals for the rest of the division have the Giants and Cowboys at 8.5 and the Redskins at six. The odds for New York and Dallas to win the division are each at +225 and Washington is the longshot at +1000.

I will be taking a much closer look at both the win totals and future odds for the entire NFC and in particular the NFC East over the coming weeks. For right now, I have focused my attention on the teams at the opposite ends of the spectrum in terms of which ones have the highest projected win totals in the NFL and which ones are expected to bring up the rear in 2012.

NFL’s Top ATS Money Makers since 2009

A team's success in any given season is determined by their straight-up win/loss record, but if you are the type of person that enjoys wagering on the games you are much more concerned about a team's record against the spread.

Last season the Eagles won as many as the lost both SU and ATS to end up 8-8 both ways. Going back to the 2009 season, the Birds finished-up 11-5 SU but were less successful ATS with a 9-7 record. In 2010 the gap was even wider with a 10-6 SU record to go along with a 7-9 record ATS.

The following is a link to a detailed look at which teams have provided the best return on investment over the past three seasons in terms of covering the spread in their games. This article was originally posted on Bang the Book.

AFC Divisional Futures Odds Update

A few weeks back I took a look at the odds for the four divisional races in the NFC. This week I turn my attention to the AFC to take a closer look at the odds for all 16 teams in respect to their chance to end-up on top of their division in 2012.

The New England Patriots are not only favored to win the AFC East but the overall conference as well. This should come as no big surprise considering that they have been perennial favorites in the AFC for the better part of the last decade. While the Patriots will most likely work their way to the top of their division, resist the temptation to wager on them winning the AFC. The last time a team lost the Super Bowl and made it back the following season was the Buffalo Bills in 1994.
