With the first week of preseason action kicking off Thursday, it’s time to take a look at the NFC’s overall wins at Caesars, DraftKings, and FanDuel Sportsbooks.

Breakdown of AFC winning totals

Breakdown of the NFC East Win Totals

Dallas Cowboys

Philly Eagles

Washington commanders

New York Giants

Dallas and Philadelphia are positioned by bookmakers as the top two teams in the NFC East. The markets, however, tell contrasting stories.

The Cowboys, who haven’t won 11 games, have the higher vig across the board, and even if DraftKings has 10 wins overall. Caesars and FanDuel both have the Dallas 10.5 aggregate win. Philadelphia, meanwhile, has the same winning total with the Over Healthy Juiced in all three books.

Washington is on an island. All three books have different win totals with their odds across the map. FanDuel is particularly interesting as the +145 number associated with Over 8.5 wins could be tempting when alongside a -170 vig for the Under.

NFC North Total Earnings Breakdown

Green Bay packers

Minnesota Vikings

Detroit Lions

Chicago Bears

While Caesars and DraftKings have an identical bid for Green Bay, FanDuel has the Packers on 10.5 wins with a significant vig tied to the over. The pack needs 12 wins to cash the over on the other two books, while 11 would be a push.

Take a look at the Vikings and you can choose the number you want between the three books for either Over or Under. DraftKings and FanDuel both have +105 odds on the over, but the win total is 9 and 9.5 respectively. The difference is also reflected in the under odds.

Detroit is another example of a team that bettors and bookies are expecting to make a step forward in 2022. All three books have the Over Return Minus Money.

Potential Bears bettors should check out either DraftKings or FanDuel as Caesars has the same win total as DraftKings with worse odds.

NFC South Total Earnings Breakdown

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Saints of New Orleans

Carolina Panther

Atlanta Falcons

The NFC South is straight forward.

Tampa Bay overbetters will find the best returns at Caesars, while supporters should look to DraftKings. Likewise, FanDuel is the place to bet the over on the Panthers, and DraftKings has the best odds on the under.

The Saints and Falcons are a bit more complicated with more options.

However, finding the win total that you feel comfortable with over or under will quickly point you in the right direction as there is a clear best for both teams on both sides.

Breakdown of NFC West winning totals

Los Angeles Rams

San Francisco 49ers

Arizona Cardinals

Seattle Seahawks

The 49ers, Cardinals and Seahawks all have multiple totals available and this is another example where you can buy a few totals available for each team.

San Francisco is of particular interest at FanDuel, while Caesars and DraftKings have listed the same totals and odds across the board.

While the lines for the Rams are only moderately different across the three books, the consensus is 10.5 wins overall, the best number for the over is DraftKings, and Caesars has the best return for the under.
