NFL Win Total Futures: Odds and Tips for Online Bookies

Published on:

The first NFL Preseason game of the year, the annual NFL Hall of Fame Game, is about 10 days away. If online bookie agents haven’t received bets on NFL Totals yet, they should soon.

Here’s a breakdown of the 3 total wagers from each conference bookmakers should keep an eye on.

NFC Odds and Tips

Atlanta Falcons           Over 9.5, -130

                                    Under 9.5, Even

The Falcons aren’t getting a lot of respect. On one hand, it makes sense. Atlanta has one of the most difficult NFL schedules imaginable.

But, on the other hand, it’s difficult to see a team in the NFC better poised to win the conference.

For Atlanta to win the conference, they almost assuredly must win at least 10 games. Per head agents shouldn’t allow casual or pro players to pound Atlanta at over 9.5 -130.

Those odds are like betting on a terrific MLB pitcher on the road.

Philadelphia Eagles    Over 8, -140

                                    Under 8, +110

It’s difficult to see Philly not winning at least 9 games this season. The Eagles are on the cusp of becoming the best team in the difficult NFC East Division.

This could be many NFL total players’ slam dunk bet of the year. Because of that, it makes sense to set max betting limits.

Detroit Lions               Over 8, +120

                                    Under 8, -150

Per head agents must respect this wager. Detroit could be the underdog NFL Total bet of the year. The Lions got into the playoffs last season.

The team has a chemistry that many folks who don’t watch Detroit play might not understand.

Chemistry goes a long way in the NFL. When egos are tempered, which they are in Detroit, a football team can play way above its skill level.

The Lions have some decent players. Get max betting limits in place for Detroit at Over 8 +120.

AFC Odds and Tips

New England Patriots             Over 12.5, -130

                                                Under 12.5, Even

The Patriots are a solid 3 to 1, even 5 to 2, favorite to win Super Bowl LII. That makes them a slam dunk to only lose 3 games during the season in the minds of many NFL future players.

But, 12.5 is a high number.

Agents are encouraged to do their own handicapping on this total prop. Take extra bets at over 12.5 if you don’t believe New England is as good as the number suggests.

Pittsburgh Steelers                  Over 10.5, -115

                                                Under 10.5, -115

The odds, at -115, imply that an even amount of money should bet on both sides for the Steelers to reach the 11-win mark. That’s a good thing.

All sportsbooks are different. A privately-run sportsbook is more different than other sportsbooks.

Pay per head agents should make sure that money is as even as possible on both sides of the Steelers win total.

Oakland Raiders                     Over 10, -105

                                                Under 10, -125

The Raiders are a hot commodity to win Super Bowl LII. Still, Oakland’s got some question marks. Over 10 games in the AFC West is a lot.


Agents must pay attention to the action in their individual businesses. They should react accordingly.
