Predictions For Win Totals

New England Patriots:

Predictably, the Pats are among the favorites for earning more wins this season.

Currently, oddsmakers are expecting New England to have more than 12½ wins this season.

This year they took on Brandin Cooks along with Dwayne Allen and Mike Gillislee on offense.

On defense, they kept cornerback Malcolm Butler and added Stephon Gilmore and Kony Ealy which can only add more balance to an already impressive lineup.

The total wins is set at 12.5. I’m taking the UNDER.

Pittsburgh Steelers:

The Steelers are among only three other teams expected to have more than 10 wins.

Last year, Pittsburgh was so close to making it to the Super Bowl that they could practically smell it.

But, a blowout loss to the Patriots killed that dream faster than a New York minute.

This year, the franchise bulked up its ranks to help Ben Roethlisberger, Martavis Bryant and Antonio Brown hopefully take another shot at reaching the big game.

The total is set at 10.5 games; they’re good for at least that number so bet the OVER.

Dallas Cowboys:

The Boys might be expected to win their division, but, perhaps not surprisingly, they’re not expected to win more than 10 games this year.

Keep in mind that Tony Romo retired and that they also lost some key players in their secondary. This should give you some insight of why they might not have a successful season this year.

Granted, they picked up players like Taco Charlton, Chidobe Awuzie and Jourdan Lewis on defense which will probably help but it’s still not clear cut.

Also, though Dak Prescott could have a successful second year, a lot of that is riding on that the offensive line stays healthy.

Even while the total is at 9.5, the best bet is on the UNDER.
