After two weeks in the NFL season, we’ve already seen some big shake-ups and surprisingly good starts for some teams.
In terms of updated NFL win total projections, the question becomes, is there value with the new number?
We’re still very early in the season, so there’s no need to shift away from the long-term markets just yet, particularly because odds have shifted heavily after such a small sample size of games.
Let’s look at the updated totals and how I project them.
Updated NFL Win Totals
Below, you can find each NFL team’s preseason win total and what its current win total is.
|Team||Preseason Win Total||Current Win Total|
|Green Bay Packers||10.5||10.5|
|Kansas City Chiefs||10.5||11.5|
|Los Angeles Chargers||10.5||11|
|Los Angeles Rams||10.5||10.5|
|Las Vegas Raiders||8.5||8|
|New England Patriots||8.5||8.5|
|New Orleans Saints||8.5||8.5|
|New York Giants||7.5||8.5|
|New York Jets||5.5||5.5|
|San Francisco 49ers||9.5||9.5|
|Tampa Bay Buccaneers||11.5||12|
As you can see, some teams have seen up to two-game shifts in their listed total. That would include the Titans, the Eagles, the Colts and the Cowboys.
On the other hand, teams such as the 49ers and the Jets haven’t had their totals moved at all at this point in the season.
Of course, the other aspect to consider is juice, the price that is assigned to each side of the over/under. That will vary from book to book, but for the most part the actual win totals will remain identical.
Koerner’s Updated NFL Win Total Projections
Before making a decision on one of these totals, you can consult my win total projections below. The projections outline the probability of each team winning a certain number of games.
For example, I have the Colts estimated at a 53% likelihood of going under their listed total of 7.5 games. At FanDuel, you can get that bet at plus-money!
