2020 NFL win totals, odds, predictions, best bets: Model picks under 6.5 wins for Giants
SportsLine's advanced computer model simulated the entire 2020 NFL season 10,000 times.
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has stated the league is prepared to make whatever adjustments necessary to ensure that games will be played, with or without fans in attendance. The NFL currently is scheduled to begin its 2020 campaign on Sept. 10 with the reigning Super Bowl-champion Kansas City Chiefs hosting the Houston Texans. A marquee matchup between Tom Brady's Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Drew Brees' New Orleans Saints highlights a 13-game slate three days later. Which teams should you back with your 2020 NFL win totals?
Kansas City tops the AFC with a projected win total of 11.5 games in the latest 2020 NFL odds from William Hill, while New Orleans is listed at an NFC-high 10.5. Before making any NFL picks on 2020 season-long win totals, be sure to see the latest NFL predictions from SportsLine's proven computer model.
The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every NFL game 10,000 times and has crushed human experts on a consistent basis. Since its 2015 inception, the model is up over $7,000 for $100 players on its top-rated NFL picks.
And when it comes to NFL win totals, the model is coming off another banner year. In 2019, it went 18-11 on its over-under picks, with three pushes.
Now, the model has generated each team's projected win total, and in many cases it's strikingly different than the Vegas line. You can head to SportsLine to see the picks.
The model's top 2020 NFL win total predictions
One of the 2020 NFL picks the model is recommending: Go under 6.5 wins for the New York Giants. The team has eclipsed that number just once in the last six seasons and recorded fewer than six victories each of the last four.
New York is dedicated to Daniel Jones at quarterback, selecting him sixth overall in the 2019 NFL Draft and inserting him into the starting role after only two games last season. The Duke product performed well out of the gate, leading the team to victory in his first two outings, but won just one of his final 10 contests.
Jones finished with 24 touchdown passes and 12 interceptions, but led the league with 18 fumbles and was sacked 38 times in 13 games. The Giants attempted to address the latter issue by drafting three offensive linemen, but growing pains are to be expected, meaning the 23-year-old Jones likely will find himself on the ground quite often again in 2020. The model is projecting just 5.7 wins on average, falling short of Vegas' win total by almost a full game.
How to make 2020 NFL win total picks
The model also generated huge disparities on other teams, including the Packers. Green Bay posted 13 wins in coach Matt LaFleur's first season after notching only six in 2018 and won the NFC North for the sixth time in nine years. Oddsmakers set Green Bay's 2020 win total at nine, and the projection model has a strong opinion on the team's fortunes. You can see every projected win total for every team right here.
So which teams sail past their projected 2020 NFL win totals? What is the model's surprising forecast for Green Bay? And how many wins will every single NFL team have this season? Visit SportsLine now to get the best season win total bets, plus see every team's projected record, all from the proven computer model that crushed its NFL win total picks last year.
