2009 NFL Team Win Totals

One of the NFL bets that is becoming more popular is the team win total proposition. Before the season begins bettors can wager if a team will have more wins (over) or fewer wins (under) than a posted number.

Team win totals are wagered on using the money line and many times bettors will have to risk more than the traditional $11 to win $10 when wagering on team totals.

Trying to determine in advance how a team will fare during the upcoming season isn't always easy, but there are a few predictors you can look at that might be able to point you to a rising team or one that can be expected to decline. A high number of close wins or losses, along with a high or low number of turnovers, is something which will reverse itself to a degree the following season, while free agency has also had an impact as teams can quickly bolster a particularly weak area, but can also take a hit if several players decide to move to another team.

Looking For an Edge

One of the most eye-catching numbers listed is Miami's over/under of seven. After all, the dolphins won 11 games last year and didn't suffer any significant personnel losses. But a more indepth look at Miami's season shows the Dolphins were a +17 in turnovers, which is unlikely to happen again, and were 7-2 in games decided by a touchdown or less, another factor the Dolphins can't count on.

Another team that caught plenty of breaks last year was Indianapolis. The Colts were 8-1 in games decided by seven points or less and were +9 in the turnover department.

Tennessee (4-1, +14 turnovers) and the Giants (4-2, +9 turnovers) are two more teams that may be hard-pressed to match last season's win totals.

On the other side of the equation, Seattle (1-5, -7 turnovers), Jacksonville (4-6, -7 turnovers) and Detroit (0-4, -9 turnovers) are teams that may catch a few more breaks over the course of the upcoming season.

Remember to shop around for the best price on any wager you like, as the odds tend to vary from sportsbook to sportsbook.
