NFL win totals

DraftKings Sportsbook released opening lines for 2022 NFL win totals on Tuesday. Familiar names lead the way like the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (11.5) and Buffalo Bills (11.5). The Atlanta Falcons (5) and Houston Texans (4.5) bring up the rear. Which teams are forecasted for the biggest step forward this coming season? Which are projected for the biggest regression?

The Cleveland Browns were not designated an opening win total as their situation surrounding Deshaun Watson remains murky.

NFL Win Totals: Biggest Steps Forward

Denver Broncos (10, O-125)

When you make a splash trade for a future Hall of Fame quarterback, it’s going to move the needle. With Russell Wilson in town, it solves the recent gripes that Denver was a quarterback away from being a contender. Wilson joins an immensely talented roster and we’ll see if the Broncos were truly a quarterback away. What might put water on their outlook? Potentially the most stacked division of the last decade in the AFC West.

New York Giants (7, O-110)

Perhaps the most surprising entry on either of these lists, the Giants finished 4-13 last season. Despite heavy criticisms, quarterback Daniel Jones returns as the presumed starter, though not without potential competition in Tyrod Taylor. First-year coach Brian Daboll was one of the most sought-after coordinators in Buffalo, giving a potential boost to this team. However, they’re still tied up with over $70 million in: Leonard Williams, James Bradberry, and Kenny Golladay alone.

Jacksonville Jaguars (6.5, O +100)

In terms of turmoil and ineptitude, the Jaguars just about reached rock bottom in the early weeks of 2021. Naturally, there are not many ways this team could move but up. Doug Pederson, who was the head coach during the Eagles’ 2017-18 Super Bowl run, brings optimism and potential to grow Trevor Lawrence into a respectable, young quarterback. They also sunk a ton of money into free agents — albeit mostly mid-tier guys. However, a three-win season and the first overall draft pick is the pits.

NFL Win Totals: Biggest Steps Backwards

Tennessee Titans (9.5, O-110)

Outside of a 1-3 midseason skid, the Titans went 11-2, some of which came without Derrick Henry. In each of the past four seasons, Tennessee has exceeded their win totals. Is this another year of underselling them? Not much in terms of production is leaving the team (mainly starting guard Roger Safford), but the Titans do draw another first-place schedule this season.

Atlanta Falcons (5, O-110)

Most pre-draft projections have the Falcons competing for next year’s number-one overall pick. It’s clearly a rebuilding season for Arthur Smith & Co. after losing star receiver Calvin Ridley to at least a year’s suspension and offloading franchise quarterback Matt Ryan. Marcus Mariota’s receiving options (not named Kyle Pitts) include Olamide Zaccheaus, Tajae Sharpe, and Auden Tate.

Arizona Cardinals (9, O-110)

This is a fairly unsurprising line set for Arizona and likely more indicative of the team they were last season. After a hot 10-2 start, the Cardinals sputtered to a 1-4 finish to the 2021 season and were unceremoniously walloped in the NFC Wild Card game by the eventual-champion Rams. However, it’s a two-game projected slide from their 2021 finish.
