2022 NFL Season Win Totals Predictions
2022 NFL Regular Season Wins Predictions
(odds from Draft Kings)
Top 7 picks
Philadelphia Eagles Under 9.5 +100
The Eagles made some impressive moves in the offseason, including trading for big WR A.J. Brown and signing CB James Bradberry, who was released by the NY Giants. However, they did not add a quarterback and will stick with Jalen Hurts for one more season. Hurts had a 87.2 passer rating last season, while throwing for 3,144 yards, 16 TDs and nine picks. He did run for 784 yards, but he’s not Lamar Jackson. He also ranked 19th in QBR with 48.5 and while Brown will help the receiving corps that won’t be enough to win 10 games.
Chicago Bears Over 6.5 -120
The second year of Justin Fields should be a stronger one. His team went 6-11 last season with a rookie quarterback and Andy Dalton. The defense should improve with Kyler Gordon and Tavon Young coming in from the draft and free agency respectively. Velus Jones gives Fields an additional weapon though he still could use more weapons with Allen Robinson gone, but the defense and Fields’ ability to run should be enough to grab seven wins with the fourth easiest schedule in the league.
New England Patriots Over 8.5 -115
Bill Belichick is worth a game or two just by being the best coach of this generation. He had average talent last season and they won 10 games with a rookie quarterback. Mac Jones Is no Tom Brady, but should improve in his second season. He’s in better shape which should help his footwork. The addition of DeVante Parker should help a mediocre receiving corps. The defense adds Malcolm Butler and Jabril Peppers. Was thinking the total would be around 9.5 or 10.
Seattle Seahawks Under 5.5 +120
This is a value pick, but considering the Seahawks have the 22nd strongest schedule with a rebuilding team, means it’s going to be a long season. Barring a late trade, Drew Lock will be the starting quarterback. He leads a team that won just 7 games last season with Russell Wilson at the helm. The defense was once led by an incredible secondary is now a shadow of its former self. On offense, teams will just double DK Metcalf and slow down the running game, which will be even less effective without Wilson.
Las Vegas Raiders Over 8.5 -120
The Raiders do have a tougher schedule this season after making the playoffs and winning 10 games. But they upgraded the team with the addition of Davante Adams at receiver and Chandler Jones to rush the EDGE. Derek Carr signed a three-year extension as he’s become a franchise quarterback. Yes, they are in a very tough division, but with Carr and Adams, plus a focus on defense in the draft and free agency, the Raiders should be a playoff team again.
Green Bay Packers Under 11 -110
Aaron Rodgers is still a great QB, but he can’t move as well as he used to. He’ll also have to fare without Davante Adams. They rarely add players in free agency and needed help on defense, the offensive line and at receiver. They can still win the NFC North with 10 wins because it’s a lousy division.
Cincinnati Bengals Over 10 +110
The Bengals will have a tougher schedule, but this is a legit team that needed to address the offensive line, which they did by adding OG Alex Cappa. They also got a stud in Daxton Hill, a safety from Michigan with their first pick. As long as you have Joe Burrow, Joe Mixon and Ja’Marr Chase, that’s a formula to win more than 10 games and win the AFC North.
