With free agency winding down and the NFL Draft still a month away, DraftKings Sportsbook has revealed the win totals for each team. This, of course, comes after the league confirmed the expansion of the regular-season schedule to 17 games.
And unsurprisingly, the Kansas City Chiefs possess the highest total in the NFL at over-under 12. The Chiefs lead the league despite their loss in Super Bowl 55 last month. Oddsmakers do realize, however, the sheer talent they employ across the roster.

TB Bucs Check in With 11.5 Wins
Right behind them are the defending Super Bowl champs — the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Tom Brady-led squad comes in at over-under 11.5 wins after winning 11 games this past season. Given they made moves to bring back basically everybody who could’ve left, fans should expect Tampa to surpass or at least come near that 11.5-win mark, unless Brady somehow hits a wall and declines rapidly in skill.
SF 49ers Over-Under 10.5 Wins?
One total that jumps out to me is the over-under 10.5 wins for the 49ers, who finished at the bottom of the NFC West last year with six victories. This comes amid a looming decision in regard to what they do at No. 3 overall — a draft pick they recently traded up to acquire. While Jimmy Garoppolo is set to return from injury and play under an expensive contract, there’s a great chance San Fran selects a quarterback such as Justin Fields, Trey Lance, or Mac Jones in the first round. Simply speaking, you don’t trade up to that period of the draft if you don’t plan on selecting a young quarterback. Jones is actually favored to be the No. 3 overall pick, per DraftKings Sportsbook.
Lowest Win Total = Texans
The lowest NFL team win total happens to be over-under 4.5 wins for the Texans, and reasonably so. Houston is coming off a putrid 2020 season in which it notched just four victories and it’s very much unclear if Deshaun Watson will ever play another down for the Texans again. While they insist he will be a part of the organization in 2021, it doesn’t seem like the superstar quarterback has any intention of staying and wishes to be traded.
