Odds as of May 23, 2023
2023 NFL Win Totals Best Bets: Jaguars OVER 9.5
Betting on the Jacksonville Jaguars to win 10 games seems like a sucker's bet, but hear me out.
There's something going right in Jacksonville, with QB Trevor Lawrence taking a big step forward last year and coach Doug Pederson leading the Jags to the postseason. But, this OVER bet is more about the Jags' competition in 2023.
Based off 2022-23 records, the Jaguars have the sixth-easiest strength of schedule in the AFC. All three squads in their division (Titans, Colts, Texans) will have rookie QBs this year and are in retool or rebuilding mode. Add in a few more soft games against teams like the Steelers and Buccaneers and the Jags could have 12 or more victories this year.

Eagles OVER 10.5
This OVER is a bit more straightforward. The Eagles won 14 games last year, posted the NFL's third-best point differential, and came a few scores away from the Super Bowl. Annnnnnnnd now their win total is way down at 10.5?
Philly lost a bit of talent this year, like DB CJ Gardner-Johnson and RB Miles Sanders. But, they also had one of the most efficient offseasons in the league. With two first round picks, the Eagles were able to add elite talent like Jalen Carter and Nolan Smith, and traded for a running back replacement in De'Andre Swift. There's no reason to thing 2023 won't be another 12+ win campaign in Philly.
Miami Dolphins UNDER 9.5
Sorry fins fans, these can't all be positive. When Tua Tagovailoa was healthy last year, the Dolphins wen't 8-5. When he wasn't, they went 1-3. Given the shaky health history of Tua over the last few seasons, that variance is not one I'm willing to bet on.
The Dolphins also have the second-hardest schedule in the league next year, with their opponents rocking a collective .554 win percentage last season.

What Is An NFL Season Win Totals Bet?
Sometimes called an OVER/UNDER bet, you would need to decide if a team’s total wins would be more or less than the oddsmaker’s set number. These betting lines are generally created before game play starts. Oddsmakers look at previous wins, past performances, coaching moves, roster changes, injuries and the schedule before settling on a number.
Understanding NFL OVER/UNDER Odds
When you visit any NFL betting site, you’ll see NFL OVER/UNDER listed like so:
Kansas City Chiefs
OVER 12.5 (-150)
UNDER 12.5 (+120)
If you think the Chiefs are going to win 13 or more games, you would take the OVER. Conversely, if you think they’ll win 12 or fewer games, you would bet the UNDER. The numbers in brackets are the actual odds. For instance, if you lay down $100 on the OVER at -150 and Kansas City wins 13 games, you’d get a payout of $166.67 – your original money is returned along with your winnings of $66.7.
If you think they’ll win fewer than 13 games and you lay down $100 on the UNDER at +120, you’d get a payout of $220 – your original money is returned along with your winnings of $120.
