Welcome back to our seventh Win Total Wednesday, where we dive into the current odds and trends of NFL win totals. After previously looking at every division in the AFC as well as the NFC East and North, we head on down to the NFC South.
As of July 1, the NFC South teams have made up 12% of the total number of bets and 8% of the total dollars wagered of all win total bets placed at William Hill.
This is the division of optimism, as only the NFC South has all four teams’ win totals receiving the majority of the total dollars wagered on their over.
There was not a bigger story this NFL offseason than Tom Brady joining the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Not surprisingly, Tampa Bay’s win total is the most popularly bet one at William Hill in terms of total number of tickets.
The Buccaneers’ win total shifted from a 9 opener (over -120/under EVEN) to currently 9.5 (over -130, under +110). Bettors believe in the Bucs reaching double-digit wins, as the over has attracted 65% of the total number of tickets and 70% of the total dollars wagered.
Overall, 56% of the total number of tickets and 46% of the total dollars wagered of all NFC South win total bets have been on Tampa Bay, both of which lead all the teams in the division.
The NFC South team that leads the way in both total number of tickets and total dollars wagered, though, is tied for the lowest win total in the NFC.
The Carolina Panthers join the Washington Redskins in the 5.5 club, though the over on Carolina has swung to being favored (-130) after opening at a +105 price.
The Panthers’ over has generated 72% of the total number of tickets and 81% of the total dollars wagered. That includes the biggest win total wager placed on any NFC South team thus far at William Hill, as one Nevada bettor put down $2,400 on Panthers over 5.5 (-120) for a potential $4,400 total payout.
Meanwhile, the New Orleans Saints are tied with the San Francisco 49ers for the highest win total at 10.5. And while the Saints’ over has gotten 63% of the total dollars wagered, they are the only NFC South team whose under has drawn the majority of the total number of tickets at 53%.
Finally, the Atlanta Falcons’ (7.5) over ranks second in the division in total number of tickets at 67%, yet is last in total dollars wagered at 62%.
