Which NFL Teams Will Have the Best and Worst Records in 2016?

Looking for alternative betting options for the 2016 NFL season? One sportsbook has you covered.

In a different kind of futures wager, online sportsbook BetOnline is offering odds on which teams will have the best and worst records at the end of the campaign.

The most likely candidates to achieve the most wins are Green Bay (+400), Seattle (+700), New England (+750), Carolina (+800) and Pittsburgh (+900). The Packers looked out of sorts in 2015, but a rebound could easily be in store. Seattle is another strong candidate, but a strong start is crucial, as Joe Osborne points out in his Seahawks betting preview.

I’d stay away from New England here. The seemingly never-ending Deflategate controversy culminated in a win for commissioner Roger Goodell and the league, as Tom Brady will be suspended for the first four weeks of the season. The Pats will once again be in the thick of things come playoff time, but I’m not confident they’ll have their usual amount of wins.

When it comes to gauging which squad will have the least victories, it appears to be a two-team race. Cleveland (+350) and San Francisco (+550) have the best odds to finish in the cellar, while Tennessee (+1000), Philadelphia (+1400) and New Orleans (+1400) aren’t far off.

The Browns have only made the playoffs once since the franchise returned to Ohio in 1999, and they’ve eclipsed the .500 mark only one time since 2003. Cleveland finally has some direction in the front office, and they have a solid coach in place now in ex-Bengal Hue Jackson. Still, they’ll likely be just as bad or worse than last year, which means a shot on the Browns at +350 looks like a great bet.

What a fall from grace for San Francisco. The 49ers are three years removed from making a conference championship appearance, and they’ve gone 8-8 and 5-11 in the years after that. Newly named coach Chip Kelly is an upgrade over Jim Tomsula, but he’s no Jim Harbaugh. Expect that downward spiral to continue in the Bay Area to the tune of three or four wins.

Here’s a look at the book’s full list of odds:
