Season Totals Progress Review
Reviewing the preseason win totals for an upcoming NFL season is one of the most enjoyable things to do for any fan. Reviewing them roughly a third of the way into the season can be painful though as things rarely go according to plan. Injuries take their toll on the sport, and the unexpected becomes the norm. Five games into the season, it’s a good time to check progress on our season win totals.
|Bills||11.5||Over||4-1||Should blow through 11 wins barring injury to Josh Allen||Win|
|Buccaneers||11.5||Under||3-2||Don’t see them getting to 12||Win|
|Packers||11||Over||3-2||Missing Adams more than they thought||Loss|
|Cowboys||10.5||Over||4-1||Surviving Dak’s injury nicely||Win|
|Rams||10.5||Over||2-3||Much less motivated after winning it all||Loss|
|Chiefs||10.5||Over||3-1||Still a top contender||Win|
|Chargers||10||Over||3-2||Looks tight for 10||Push|
|Broncos||10||Over||2-3||What happened to Russell Wilson?||Loss|

|Ravens||9.5||Over||3-2||On target, need to be more consistent||Win|

|Eagles||9||Over||5-0||No stopping the Birds from 10 wins||Win|
|Cardinals||9||Under||2-3||Eight seems like the top possible from AZ||Win|
|Vikings||9||Over||4-1||Favorites for division crown||Win|
|Dolphins||8.5||Over||3-2||Injuries an issue, but should get to 9||Win|
|Patriots||8.5||Under||2-3||Difficult slate keeps them to 8 or less||Win|
|Raiders||8.5||Over||1-3||AFC West life is hard||Loss|
|Saints||7.5||Under||2-3||On target, unsettled QB play will help||Win|
|Steelers||7.5||Over||1-4||Thought defense would carry them. Not.||Loss|
|Commanders||7.5||Over||1-4||Competitive play not adding up to wins||Loss|
|Giants||7||Over||4-1||Healthy Barkley help Giants blow past 8||Win|
|Seahawks||6||Under||2-3||Will be tight, probably find 7||Loss|
|Panthers||6||Under||1-4||Top five pick in 2023 draft||Win|
|Jaguars||6.5||Under||2-3||Will be close, Sunday’s loss was a bonus||Win|
|Bears||6.5||Under||2-3||Five more wins will be tough to find||Win|
|Lions||6||Over||1-4||Showing heart but not winning||Loss|
|Falcons||5.5||Under||2-3||Playing tough against better teams||Win|
|Jets||5.5||Over||3-2||Should blow through 5 wins||Win|
|Texans||4.5||Over||1-3-1||Tie might doom this pick||Loss|
At the 1/3 pole, we stand at a respectable 18-12-2. More importantly, let’s look at how our best bets are doing:
Buffalo over 11.5
The Bills will push for the top seed in the AFC barring an injury to Josh Allen. Looking at the remaining schedule, it would be a surprise if Buffalo doesn’t blow this total away. We think 14 wins is a lock.
Tennessee over 9.5
The Titans have been disappointing so far, yet 10 wins is still very possible. The Titans have been better late than they have been in the early part of the last few seasons. They need someone to step up in the passing game, and the defense needs to be better overall. As for hitting 10 wins, it will be close.
Atlanta under 5.5
The Falcons have been feisty through the first five games. Despite dealing with a talent deficit, they have been in every game thus far. The dirty birds have surprised us if we are being honest. The question is can they can sustain that effort for the next two thirds of the season. I think there may very well be four more wins on their calendar, so as of now, we have to expect to lose this one.
It would be cool if the books would post a new set of totals mid-season. Now that we have had a chance to see how things are going, it would be fun to look to how the rest of the season will play out. I am going to drop a hint in the suggestion box at Casino 777. If enough of us do the same, maybe we get them to oblige. Play some casino 777 roulette in your spare time in between watching the next Jets football game. Just don’t get so into it that you miss the game highlights!
