NFL Draft coverage is beginning to ramp up as football season draws closer. There’s still a long way to go between now and the Pro Football Hall of Fame Game. However, there’s plenty of excitement to be had along the way as we develop a better idea of what each roster will look like in Week 1. One of these excitements is the release of win total odds, specifically those of the NFC South.
The NFC South has been turned on its head in recent years. Star signal-callers such as Tom Brady, Drew Brees, Cam Newton and Matt Ryan are all gone now. They’ve left behind a division that’s quarterback-deficient for the first time in decades. The New Orleans Saints seemingly have the best of the bunch (as of late March), though, with their star offseason acquisition, Derek Carr.
It would appear that Carr still has quite a few friends in Las Vegas. His new team is being given a win total of 9.5 by oddsmakers, up from 7.5 wins at this point last offseason.
Carr and Jamaal Williams represent just two of the impressive acquisitions that make the Saints the favorite to win the NFC South (+110). New Orleans has the highest win total line in the NFC South at 9.5 wins, according to odds in the market.
The Atlanta Falcons and Carolina Panthers, who will likely draft a quarterback with the No. 1 overall pick, trail closely behind at 7.5 wins each. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers round out the group with the worst projected total, 6.5 wins.
Here are all of the NFC South win total lines with over-under odds:
