Why Do The Chiefs Have Highest NFL Season Win Total Odds?

Blessed with a generational quarterback and one of the most innovative offensive coaches the NFL has ever seen, it makes sense for the Kansas City Chiefs to be placed atop the mountain in 2021 NFL OVER/UNDER win total odds.

The Chiefs have appeared in back-to-back Super Bowls and while they lost handily to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers due to the lack of depth on their offensive line, Kansas City made it a priority in the offseason to rectify that issue. The Chiefs traded for a new starting tackle (Orlando Brown Jr.) and starting left guard (Joe Thuney) and will be getting right guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif back after he opted out of 2020 due to COVID-19.

With the offensive line being remodeled, it should give the Chiefs another edge offensively that could make them too potent to stop. Another factor that bettors may want to consider in wagering on OVER 12.5 wins is the AFC West division. The Chiefs have been head and shoulders above the other teams in the division in recent years and none of the Chargers, Raiders or Broncos improved their weaknesses to the extent the Chiefs managed to do.

KC should be good for 13 wins as the ascension of quarterback Patrick Mahomes to all-time great status continues in front of our eyes.

Teams To Watch For In NFL Win Totals

The two NFL teams that immediately stand out as squads that could exceed or disappoint in NFL win total predictions are the Cleveland Browns and New Orleans Saints.

Cleveland Browns

The Browns are coming off the franchise’s most important season since it was reborn in 1999. Cleveland went 11-5 and made the playoffs for the first time since 2002 while also winning a playoff game over the hated rival Steelers. Top to bottom, the Browns might have the most talented roster in the NFL with a top-ranked offensive line, a two-headed monster for a running game and an emerging quarterback in Baker Mayfield.

With 11 wins last season, a roster ready to compete and teams like the Steelers and Bengals a tier below in talent, the Browns have the makings of a perennial contender in the AFC North.

New Orleans Saints

As for the Saints, the franchise could be in for a rude awakening with no Drew Brees at quarterback. The future Hall of Famer’s pinpoint passing and leadership were staples of a team that routinely won 11 or more games the past four seasons. Now, with reclamation project Jameis Winston at the helm and Taysom Hill spelling him periodically, it’s hard to envision how this offense comes together.

The last time Winston was a full-time starter in the NFL, he ended up throwing over 30 touchdown passes but also had 30 interceptions, a rare feat. The Saints’ projected win total for the 2021 season is set at 9 with the UNDER at -150 and that may be the bet to make when wagering on NFL season win totals.

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 gameplay 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.
