- The NFC East has completely fallen off after a rough 2019 season.
- The teams need to find ways to win and make their division relevant again.
- The Eagles are the team expected to win the most games in the NFC East.
NEW YORK - With the 2019 season in the rear-view mirror, the teams in the NFC East can finally take a breather as they just completed one of the most horrific seasons as a division. As a whole, they finished with a combined record of 24-40.
The division got lucky as they were just two games away from tying the worst divisional record in history. Unless a big name playmaker makes his way there, things don’t seem to be getting any brighter. Regardless, bettors are given a wonderful opportunity to bet on the NFC East team win totals for the 2020 NFL season.
The Philadelphia Eagles were projected highly at 11-5 but ended up finishing a disappointing 9-7 a season ago. The Eagles' major problem this season was their receiving. Everything else was alright. Carson Wentz had over 4,000 passing yards and they had a strong two-back running game with Miles Saunders and Jordan Howard.
Back to their receiving, it's not that they have bad receivers, Alshon Jeffery and Nelson Agholor are actually pretty decent. After the season they had, it might not be so believable. Jeffery saw a major dump off in yards and Agholor just dropped anything that came his way, as he went only 50% between targets and receptions.
Philly’s Over/Under is sitting a bit high at 10 wins. The only way that number would be possible would be for their receivers to wake up. If not, then do not hesitate to bet the under.
The Dallas Cowboys season was not as bad of a letdown, as they were projected at 9-7 and finished close, going 8-8. The thing about Dallas is that they had a strong offensive team going into this year but they had a tough schedule that ended with some close games. A total of six of their games came against playoff teams. Now, this isn’t a good look for them as it shows they can only win against below .500 teams.
That being said, they just brought in Mike McCarthy after moving on from Jason Garrett so maybe the move will light a much-needed match for them. Overall, Dak Prescott had a pretty good season as he threw for just under 5000 yards and 30 touchdowns.
Dallas’ Over/Under is at 9.5 wins. After last season this is a pretty fair number. It would be unlikely for them to finish under that. If the offense could get things rolling though, the over would be a strong bet.
New York Giants
The New York Giants. They didn’t have the highest expectations going into this season as they were projected 8-8, but 4-12? They should be ashamed of themselves.
Daniel Jones did exceed some expectations but not enough to “wow” anyone. Sterling Shepard might as well have sat this season out as he was nowhere to be found. The receiving core had to rely on a 31-year old Golden Tate if that tells fans anything. Evan Engram, although injured, needs to be used more to at least generate something, he has the talent to do so.
Saquon Barkley, on the other hand, deserves every ounce of rest he can get as he is the only reliable source of offense that this team has to offer.
New York’s Over/Under is at 6.5. The Giants don’t seem anywhere near close to a 6 win team at all. The under is a safe bet.
There really is not a whole lot to be happy about for Washington Redskins fans. They had low expectations going into this season, projected to go 3-13 and that’s exactly what they did.
It’s clear that the organization has entered full rebuild mode. They did a good job of getting Terry McLaurin as he had a great rookie season averaging almost 16 yards per reception and seven touchdowns. Dwayne Haskins, on the other hand, did not see the field much. One would think that if a quarterback was taken in the first round that they would be started, that clearly was not the situation as Case Keenum wad the starter with Alex Smith sidelined for the year.
Washington’s Over/Under was is at 5.5. With the team still trying to figure out their identity, the under could be a safe bet.
