NFL Win Totals 2021: Chiefs and Bucs lead as training camp opens

 

With the 2021 NFL season just over the horizon, it’s time to start focusing on futures betting. Part of that is betting on NFL win totals, which change throughout the offseason.

In the NFL offseason, the sports betting world focuses on a few futures markets. One of the most popular is the win totals market, which looks at each team and their prospective win totals for the upcoming season. With the increase in legal sports betting, these markets tend to release earlier and earlier.

NFL futures betting is becoming more and more popular with the rise of the legal sports betting industry in the United States. As the number of bettors grows at legal sportsbooks, the ability to bet on NFL futures will grow as well. DraftKings Sportsbook has posted its 2021 NFL Win Total odds already ahead of the NFL Draft and even free agency.

  • Chiefs (12)
  • Bucs (11.5)
  • Ravens (11)
  • 49ers, Bills, Packers, Rams (10.5)

As you can see, there are quite a few teams projected for some very poor seasons as well. DraftKings has the Texans’ total at 4.5 wins, with the Lions at five wins right behind them. Four teams have a 6.5-win total number including the Eagles, who had a number closer to double-digits this time last season.

The win totals have rolled in from various legal sportsbooks, and BetMGM posted theirs just weeks before the NFL Draft was set to begin. Here’s a look at the opening win totals for all 32 teams at BetMGM Sportsbook.

Vikings Win Total Jumps to 9

The Vikings initial win total was set at 8.5 wins on the season, but some heavy money coming in on the over has led the legal sportsbooks to raise the Vikings’ total to 9 wins. With a 17-game schedule, that would still only put Minnesota at 9-8, which they stand to improve on with any improvement on the offensive line or defensive side of the football.

In addition, Vikings announced home games will have a full capacity, which helps them in Minneapolis.

 

Broncos Win Total Jumps amidst Aaron Rodgers Rumors

The story of the NFL offseason so far has been a simple question. Where will Aaron Rodgers play in 2021? You can bet on this at DraftKings Sportsbook, but in more ways than you may think.

After the recent rumors popped up about Aaron Rodgers wanting out of Green Bay and the Broncos being a landing spot, Denver’s Super Bowl odds rose and the Packers fell. But, so did the Broncos win total. The Broncos’ win total moved from 7.5 to 9, which is a massive shift in a futures market. If Rodgers does get moved, there is value in the Packers under as the market has not adjusted in case Rodgers stays. After the schedule release, the Broncos’ total went back to 8.5, but the juice is heavy on the over.

 

DraftKings NFL Win Totals Released, Chiefs and Bucs Lead

With the 2021-2022 NFL win totals released, it is to no one’s surprise that the only two teams projected to win more than 11 games are the Bucs and the Chiefs, who faced off in last year’s Super Bowl. The Bucs have re-signed nearly everyone going into the offseason, and the Chiefs have restructured their offensive line and will enter the NFL Draft with assets to improve their team as a whole. It helps by having two of the best quarterbacks we have seen play the game in Tom Brady and Patrick Mahomes, too.
