Atlantis Casino first book to release 2013 NFL season win totals

http://www.covers.com/articles/artic...?theArt=320153

Quote:
Atlantis sportsbook director Steve Mikkelson, renowned for being the first to release MLB season win totals each year, crunched the NFL numbers on his day off Wednesday and sat down with Covers to discuss some of the most interesting win totals on the board before they went live Thursday afternoon.

Toughest win totals to set – Kansas City Chiefs (6.5), Philadelphia Eagles (7.5) and Detroit Lions (7.5)

“For me, the toughest win totals to set were the Chiefs, Eagles and Lions because they all underachieved last year,” Mikkelson told Covers. “The Chiefs and Eagles have new coaches, with Andy Reid and Chip Kelly, so you’d like to think that would make a difference. But it’s an unknown.”

Biggest difference from last year – Seattle Seahawks (11)

“The Seahawks were 7.5 wins last year and now we have them at 11. We have some teams going up by three, like Denver and Indianapolis, but the Seahawks are the biggest jump. That defense is dominating and Russell Wilson played so well in his first year. Some people think they’re the best team in the NFL. Even though (the NFC West is) a tough division, you have to think of them as one of the best and we weren’t saying that last year.”

Highest season win total – Denver Broncos (12)

“It’s not really a case of me thinking they’re the absolute best team in football, but you look at that schedule and (the AFC West) division and I don’t know where they’re going to get those losses from. As long as (Peyton) Manning stays healthy, I don’t see a whole lot of losses for this team.”

Lowest season win total – Jacksonville Jaguars (4.5)

“Not really a surprise. It’s just a case of them not having a lot going for them,” says Mikkelson. “I’m not sold on the quarterback situation and I’m not sure if Blaine Gabbert can play. They had a nice draft, but is that really going transition them into being a strong team? Maurice Jones-Drew is back but how healthy is he going to be? They’re just a bad team and it’s tough to give them wins. I could have easily went with four but everyone likes to bet the low totals up and the high ones down.”

It's way early and tough to find value, but I think the Ravens have a hard time getting to 10 wins.

Betting the over on the Eagles seems like a safe bet.

Giants at 9 seems like prime picking for the OVER.

Colts at 8 seems like the right number. They were extremely lucky last season and I think they're very similar to the Titans coming into last season; a team that overachieved the previous season that some like to go out on a limb for. They'll finish right in that 7-9 win range.

Even in the years the Giants win the Superbowl they don't always pay off a regular season over 9 bet. Agree with you on Indy: I was hoping they would come out at something like 10.5 - then I was going to mortgage the house to the hilt and put everything on the under.

I would say the best bets are: Dal under 8.5, Jax under 4.5, KC over 6.5, and NO over 9.5.

In this example, the casino tells us they think it's easier for the Jags to win five game or more.
So if you want to bet on the Jags to win 5 games or more, you have to wager $140 to win $100.
If the Jags win 5 or more, you take him $100.
If the Jags win 4 or less, you lose $140

They also want the bettors to think that's there's less of a chance for the Jags to win only 4 games at the most.
Here, you bet $100 for a possible pay out of $110.
If the Jags win 4 or fewer, you win $110
If the Jags win 5 or more, you lose $100

Yes, I think these are both dead cinch locks.

I think the under 6.5. The Eagles are the last place team in a tough division with a 1st time NFL coach. It will take time for Kelly to figure out the league and what he can and can't do.

Vikings at 7.5 looks like a misprint. Definitely over. The Cards should go over 6 with a real QB. I like Tampa Bay and Carolina to go over 6.5 in what could be a free for all in the NFC south. I would never take an over on 12 (Pack and Broncos). And even 5.5 looks unattainable for a team as bad as the Raiders.

I know it's crazy but I've totally sworn off the cowgirls; either for or against, they always seem to screw me either way.
