If the oddsmakers in Las Vegas are any indicator, there are going to be three distinct classes of teams in the NFL this season and one of those groups is the New England Patriots all by themselves.
Below is a look at the over/under win totals for every team in the NFL this season, according to Bovada. While these numbers can be viewed as a prediction for the number of wins for each team, more accurately, these represent the numbers where the betting public are typically split as to whether the team will win more or fewer games.
In general, all 32 teams can be clumped into one of three groups: 1) the seven teams likely to battle for the top pick in the NFL Draft with win totals of 4.5-6.5; 2) the class of the NFL, the New England Patriots at 12.5 wins; and 3) the 24 teams in the middle with over/unders of 7.5-10.5 who will likely be battling for the 11 playoff spots not taken by the Pats. For that final group, a good break or bounce, or a key injury could be the difference between making the playoffs or sitting at home in January.
