2011 NFL Regular Season Team Wins Picks - 18 picks for 2011
NFL SEASON WIN TOTALS:
- 60% winners over six years (64% on best bets)
- 31% Bankroll growth
- Only one losing season out of six
The 2011 NFL regular season is nearly upon us. The excitement is building. We will be hitting the NFL preseason hard (67% winning NFL pre-seasons) but before that, it's time to take advantage of the the NFL Season Wins bets.
Every year I predict NFL season performance (regular season win totals). Based on the performance (60% on 74 picks with only one losing season including 64% (21-12 on Best Bets), this is becoming one of the must-haves for serious NFL bettors. While most people don't pay attention to these bets, make no mistake - this is one of the best NFL betting opportunities available!
NFL Team Wins Totals - A great opportunity
Why are betting NFL season win totals such a great opportunity? Primarily because so few people put in the time and effort to make these types of NFL picks. Of the few that do put in time on these predictions, I believe that no one looks at them as scientifically as I do. Simply put, no one puts in the effort I do in predicting season win totals and the results bear this out.
For these reasons, I have hit 64% on by Best Betsand 60% overall on my season win totals picks the past six years:
On my highest-rated picks (3-5 unit), I am 21-12and I have 8 of these this season.
These season win totals picks have become part of my official NFL picks that have have allowed $100 bettors to turn a $10,000 bankroll into $70,985 - a 610% increase in ten seasons using Wunderdog NFL picks.
2011 NFL Predictions - Team Win Totals
On to this year's picks. This season I have 18 season-wins picks. Below are 4 of these (three of my 2-unit selections and one 3-unit Best Bet). The remaining 14 selections are free to NFL season subscribers or can be ordered separately through September 8th, 2011 for $49 here.
Houston Texans OVER 8.5 wins (-145)- 2 units
- Offense is nearly unstoppable
- Defense was horrible but Phillips - not great head coach but gread D coordinator
- Added Jonathan Joseph and Danieal Manning in secondary
Minnesota Vikings OVER 7 wins (-140)- 2 units
- -11 in turnovers last season
- New coach typically = more wins
- McNabb likely has one good year in him, especially with AP toting the rock.
New York Jets UNDER 10 wins (-130)- 2 units
- Overperformed last year
- +9 turnovers last year
- 3rd toughest schedule this year
Cincinnati Bengals OVER 5.5 wins (+130)- 3 units (Best Bet)
The Bengals suffered from -8 turnovers last year, along with the 4th hardest schedule going into last season (the absolute hardest when looking back on the season). This year, they get the 4th easiest, which is the biggest swing for any team. While they only won four games in 2010, their statistics would have predicted six (pythagorean wins), indicating that this team is underrated going into 2011. This is further evidenced by the fact that the Bengals were -5 net losses in close games (expectation is around 0) last season. Bruce Gradkowski is perennially underrated and given Carson Palmer's recent performance, Gradkowski may not be a downgrade. The core numbers for this team were not that bad last season (#20 on offense and #15 on defense). It's not hard for me to see Cincy winning six or more games in 2011.
