NFL O/U’s For Win Totals Are Out, Chiefs and Bucs Lead The Pack

  • NFL 2021 O/U win totals are out at the online sportsbooks.
  • The Kansas City Chiefs have a wins o/u of 12, after winning 14 games in 2020.
  • The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have a wins o/u of 11.5, after winning 11 games in 2020.

LAS VEGAS – The futures odds for how many wins each team will get in the 2021 NFL season are available on the online sportsbooks.

The odds seem fairly chalky for now, with teams that were good in 2020 being favored to be good again in 2021.

Here’s what the top six teams look like in terms of win total O/U’s.

2021 NFL Season Win Total O/U Lines

  • Kansas City Chiefs – 12
  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers – 11.5
  • Baltimore Ravens – 11
  • Green Bay Packers – 11
  • Buffalo Bills – 10.5
  • Los Angeles Rams – 10.5

Why top six? Because the Buffalo Bills and the Los Angeles Rams are tied at 10.5 wins.

Speaking of the Rams, they’re the only serious addition to this elite group of teams. Four of the five remaining teams were in the Conference Championship Games last year, and the fifth, Baltimore Ravens, won 11 games in 2020.

The Rams have been elevated into this category by virtue of their trade for Matthew Stafford, a veteran QB who can replace Jared Goff and hopefully elevate the team.

The Rams won 10 games with Goff on the roster, and with Stafford coming in are favored to improve on that number just a bit.

In order to cover this O/U line, they’ll need to win 11 games, and considering how tough their division is, that could be a tall order.

The Rams are in the NFC West, which features the Seattle Seahawks, the Arizona Cardinals, and the San Francisco 49ers.

In fact, three of the teams in the NFC West have O/U lines at 10.0 or above:

NFC West Win Total O/U Lines

  • Los Angeles Rams – 10.5
  • San Fransisco 49ers – 10
  • Seattle Seahawks – 10
  • Arizona Cardinals – 8

That’s a tough division, and since each team in the division will play each other twice, there will be a bit of cannibalization going on.

One other oddity in these odds is that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are the team with the second-highest O/U total.

On its face, that might not sound that weird, considering they won Super Bowl 55, but the Bucs only won 11 games in 2021.

That’s less games than the Seattle Seahawks, the Green Bay Packers, the New Orleans Saints, the Buffalo Bills, the Kansas City Chiefs, and the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Of those teams, the Saints are likely to fall off without Drew Brees, but most of them are entering 2021 with a similar squad to what they entered 2020 with.

The Bucs are a great team – and proved it in the playoffs – but will they go all out during the regular season, especially after proving that they didn’t need to win their division in order to win the Super Bowl?

Super Bowl betting enthusiasts can look at these odds as instructive – there’s a correlation between winning a lot of games and winning the Super Bowl.
