The start of the 2019 NFL Season is still five months away and the official schedule hasn’t even been released but that’s not stopping some Las Vegas sports books from releasing their win totals for all 32 NFL Teams.


We’ll break down the 32 teams into a few different categories, with today’s being the five teams with double digit projected win totals.


Yes only five.

These five teams are expected to be the cream of the crop for the 2019 season. They are the true Legit Lombardi Trophy Hopefuls.


In the below charts, you’ll find their 2019 Over/Under win totals, the spread for each of those bets, their 2018 total wins, 2018 Quality Stat Power Rankings, 2018 Intelligence Index, 2018 Quality Standings, and Real Quarterback Rating.

New England Patriots

2019 Projected Total: 11

Why you should take the OVER: Think the Pats are upset over losing Rob Gronkowski to retirement or Trent Brown and  Trey Flowers to free agency? Think again…If there’s one thing the Pats proved over and over and over and over and over again is the fact they don’t let the loss of key players interfere with stacking up wins. Since 2003 they’ve only finished with less than 11 wins TWICE!!!

Why you should take the UNDER: Tom Brady turns 42 years old and despite his April Fools joke seems to have no plans on retiring. We know “Father-Time” is undefeated, is this the season age finally catches up with the ageless wonder?

Why you should take the OVER: Reigning NFL MVP Patrick Mahomes was absolutely dominant in his first year as an NFL starter…Just imagine what he can accomplish as a 2nd year “veteran.”

Why you should take the UNDER: Wide receiver Tyreek Hill is widely considered one of the most dangerous players on the field… Turns out that’s not the only place he’s dangerous. The speedy Wide Receiver is currently being investigated for a domestic violence charge that could result in a lengthy suspension.

Los Angels Rams

2019 Projected Total: 10.5

Why you should take the OVER: Last year’s Super Bowl runner-ups have one of the most talented rosters in the league and an innovative Head Coach/Player-Caller in Sean McVay that the rest of the league (except for Bill Belichick) can’t contain or slow down.

Why you should take the UNDER: All-Pro running back Todd Gurley missed the last few regular season games and significantly wore down in the playoffs. If his bothersome/Arthritic/Surgically Repaired knee acts up again in 2019, the Rams Offense will need to find a new identity/spark-plug.

New Orleans Saints

2019 Projected Total: 10.5

Why you should take the OVER: The NFL changed their review/challenge policy which now includes the ability to challenge a non-pass interference call. That new rule sure could have helped them late in regulation of last year’s NFC Championship. One of the most dominant teams across the board on our 2018 Quality Stats, the Saints have nearly every starter back for 2019.

Why you should take the UNDER: Is Drew Brees a TB12 Method truther and we just don’t know it? Brees turned 40 years old this year and though he rarely misses any action (played in 15 or more games in every season since 2004) he’s of the age that would indicate a significant decline in ability but since that hasn’t happened, one has to wonder how long will playing with that kind of house money will actually last?

Los Angeles Chargers

2019 Projected Total: 10

Why you should take the OVER:  Philip Rivers may have his best Offense since LaDainian Tomlinson roamed the Chargers backfield and now finally has a strong Defense to keep the opposition in check.

Why you should take the UNDER: The Chargers are coming off a great season but it’s just their second season with double digit wins since 2009. The last time they won 10 or more games was  followed up by five straight seasons of nine, eight, and seven wins.
