With the 2021 NFL season just around the corner, bettors and fans around the country are gearing up for a huge few months.
There are more states involved in online betting, and that number is growing every few months.
Here is a look at some of the best over/under total bets for the season by some US sportsbooks.
1-Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Tom Brady and the band are all back together, to make a run at a second-straight Super Bowl title. Last season, this team went 11-5 with a much tougher New Orleans team in the NFC South, and with an over/under total of 11.5 with many books, it would be hard to think this team couldn’t be one game better in the standings. With the 17th game on the docket, this season for the NFL, 12-5 does not look like a stretch. You could also pay a premium and get them at 12.5 for odds of +120.
2-Kansas City Chiefs
The two-time defending AFC champions open up with a total of 12.5, so they would have to go 13-4 or better to win an over wager. Since Patrick Mahomes took over, KC has gone 12-4, 12-4 (Super Bowl champions), and 14-2 (AFC champions). Home field advantage will be pivotal, and this team got better, especially on the O-line. Give me the over.
3-Los Angeles Rams
There are many sportsbooks that have the Rams at 9.5 on the over/under total, which honestly looks like a steal to me. Yes, they have some running back injuries, but this team is built to win now, and 10-7 seems very much in play. Many will say the NFC West is brutal (it is), but this team could be the best in the division.
It took a little while, but the Browns finally showed up in 2020, going 11-5 in a very tough AFC North. Cleveland’s total this year is 10 (high juice on the over) or 10.5, and that looks a little low to me.
Cleveland could make a big jump in 2021 to 12-5 or 13-4, both of which would cover the over easily.
5-Washington Football Team
The franchise that is still going by the WFT moniker won the NFC (L) East last season at 7-9. This team is loaded on defense and picked up Ryan Fitzpatrick to run the offense in 2021. Guess what? That could prove to be pivotal, as Fitzpatrick is a solid quarterback that will make plays, while not turning the ball over to the other team.
With this defense, led by potential Defensive Player of the Year Chase Young, fewer turnovers mean more offensive points and worse starting field position for the opponents. Washington’s over/under a total of 8.5 wins looks criminally low: this team should easily go 9-8 AT WORST, with 10-7 or 11-6 on the cards. You can get this as low as -110 odds.
This could be a very good play for bettors.
Philadelphia opens with a total of 6.5, but I have seen that number up to 7.5 on some sites. This division is better, but I find it hard to believe this team can’t go 7-10. I would have to take the over.
