The Super Bowl was played barely two months ago, and it’s still a little over five months until the regular season kicks off. Two months down, five months to go.
The first weeks of free agency are in the books, but there will still be the occasional veteran free agent signed here or there. The draft is still about a month away, and a lot can happen between now and the start of the regular season. But that didn’t stop a Vegas Sportsbook from releasing the 2019 NFL regular season win totals.
CG Technology released their NFL Over/Under win totals for all 32 teams on Sunday and they have the Cowboys failing to repeat as NFC East champions.
In the NFC, the Rams (10.5), Saints (10.5), and Bears (9.5) are projected to repeat as division winners, while the Cowboys (8.5) are projected to finish in second place in the NFC East behind the Eagles (9.5).
Here’s a summary of the win projections for all 32 NFL teams.
We know, of course, that Vegas’ favorite team is cash. If they over- or undervalue a team they lose money, and with these over/unders, the sportsbooks are really just trying to play against the bettors and get equal money on both sides of the bet, even if these early odds haven’t always worked in Vegas’ favor.
Be that as it may, for now Vegas has the Cowboys as the underdogs in the NFC East. We still have the draft, OTAs, minicamps, and training camp ahead of us. Not a single snap of organized football has been played. And while we don’t have a lot of information about the 2019 team yet, what we do have is an abundance of opinions about the team.
Are you optimistic enough about the Cowboys’ chances this year that you would take the over on those 8.5 wins? Or are you picking the under?
