Betting Odds: AFC Regular Season Win Totals Open Up

As the majority of the league gets set for the NFL Draft on Thursday, the oddsmakers have revealed regular season win totals for the AFC teams. Let’s take a closer look to see who are the best early bets:

Cleveland Browns – 4.5 Wins (O: -130, U: +110)

Despite having an 0-16 record last season, the Browns were actually in a few a games, they just couldn’t get away from making late mistakes. However, they had a busy offseason in which they traded for Jarvis Landry and Tyrod Taylor, and they have the first and fourth overall picks in the draft, which they should be taking calls for this week. The Browns did lose one of the best left tackles in NFL history to retirement in Joe Thomas, so that is something that they’ll have to sort out. But a 5-11 record isn’t out of the cards in Cleveland.

Houston Texans – 9.5 Wins (O: +110, U: -1130)

The Texans finished 4-12 last season, but three of those wins came with DeShaun Watson and he should be healthy after tearing his ACL in November. DeAndre Hopkins and Watson were getting on great in the passing game prior to that, so offensively, Houston should be fine. It is the defense that needs to improve and much of that hinges on the health of J.J. Watt, who played just five games. If he is healthy, along with Watson, the Texans (who don’t have a pick until the third round at #68) are a contender for double-digit wins.

Miami Dolphins – 5.5 Wins (O: -200, U: +170)

The Dolphins were 6-10 in 2017, which isn’t bad considering Ryan Tannehill and they trotted out Jay Cutler, who had to play himself into shape. But losing Landry is a big blow to the passing game and puts a lot of pressure on Tannehill because Danny Amendola is no Landry. The defense also needs a lot of help after finishing 29th in points allowed. The Dolphins, who pick 11th, could be looking at the AFC East basement.

New York Jets – 6.5 Wins (O: -125, U: +105)

Speaking of the AFC East, the Jets were 5-11 last season and they’ll pick third in the draft. They picked up Teddy Bridgewater, who is out to show he is healthy after an injury-riddled time in Minnesota. However, the Jets don’t have much don’t have much else offensively and could look to pick up a quarterback in the draft. However, the defense was better than the numbers and the Jets lose six games by eight points or less. They turn around a couple of those and that is a seven-win team.

Oakland Raiders – 8.5 Wins (O: -160, U: +140)

The Raiders were 6-10 and one of the biggest disappointments in the NFL last season, and will pick 10th in the draft. They brought back Jon Gruden to be their coach and made a slew of changes on offense, defense and special teams. They need Derek Carr and Amari Cooper to play much better than they did last season. The Raiders went through a lot of change and it’s going to be interesting to see how long it takes them to come together.
