The Green Bay Packers will win 12 games in 2013 if you believe the oddsmakers.
The Packers and the Denver Broncos lead the NFL in projected win totals for 2013 at the Atlantis Sports Book in Reno, which posted the first win total numbers this week.
Those teams are followed by New England and San Francisco at 11.5 and Houston and Seattle with 11.
Chicago has the second-highest total in the NFC North with 8.5, followed by Minnesota (7.5) and Detroit (7).
If you’re looking for some good bets, we like these.
Oakland (5.5) — Over: These clowns should be able to put up six wins with Matt Flynn at the helm.
Tampa Bay (6.5) — Over: They won seven last year and should be better in their second season under Greg Schiano. The Dashon Goldson acquisition helps.
Jets (7) — Under: These guys have no offense regardless of who the quarterback is. Four wins seems pretty realistic.
Miami (7.5) — Over: Ryan Tannehill has a better offense to work with and this team won seven in 2012. It’s hard to see them not going at least 8-8 in 2013.
The Packers? I’d leave that one alone.
I unfortunately think the ofdmakers are a touch off on this one.. I could see an easy 10 wins, 11 if we don’t shit the bed, but I believe 12-4 is a stretch. I’d love to see it, just not buying it yet.
Why? Because technically we did win 12 games last year, and we beefed up our run game and defensive line (the two areas that lacked the most production last year)?
You’re fucking right they do.
GBP 4 Lizzle
On paper Cincinnati should be an improved playoff team.
Their draft gave Andy Dalton as much help as any draft can.
As long as their secondary holds up, its something of a
make or break year for Dalton.
New run game, O Line will improve, hoping A-Rod will remain healthy, I can see the Pack making another trip to the playoffs. Go Pack Go!
Packers have the toughest schedule in the NFL.
A B.S. bye week in week 4.
I will be happy & suprised if they can come out of the chute with a 3-0 start.
Take the under on the Pack. It’s +EV even if they happen to do it. Tough schedule.
