One of the biggest storylines of this coming 2021 season will be the reigning champion Tampa Bay Bucs who will be returning almost all of their starters from a year ago, including 3-time league MVP, Tom Brady. Currently the oddsmakers in Vegas have the Bucs opening at 11.5 wins on the season. Coming off an 11-win season last year, the NFL will also be adding a 17th game to the schedule this year, so the Bucs will have more chances to reach that 11.5 over/under win total. To get there they’ll have little room for error as they have one of the hardest projected schedules for the coming season.
On the other end of the spectrum, Brady’s former team, the New England Patriots are looking to have a bounce back year after a disappointing season in 2020. They made big moves in the draft by acquiring highly touted Alabama QB Mac Jones in the first round. He’ll join starting QB Cam Newton as the Patriots attempt to improve on their disappointing 7-win season from a year ago. Currently the oddsmakers have Belichick and the Patriots projected with 9-wins in 2021, a number that Jon thinks could swing by at least a point or two by time the season kicks off in early September. The Patriots defense should be improved but the biggest question mark for the team will be their offense and particularly the quarterback position. Newton looked rusty last season and while Mac looks to have a lot of potential, it’s hard to say if that potential will be much help getting them to 9 wins this year.
The Ravens are another team slated to have a big winning 2021 season as they’re currently projected to win 11 games at +105/-115 odds. Mr. Price has made a lot of money on the Ravens in recent years, and he urges caution when betting against John Harbaugh and the Ravens’ organization that competes for AFC North titles every year, but he sees their difficult schedule and questionable depth at a few notable positions as questions looming over their 2021 season. Lamar Jackson is the greatest X-factor in all of the NFL, but will he be able to do enough to get to 12 wins with an unproven wide receiving corp and a big hole remaining at right tackle? Jon says he has the answer but he’s not sharing, yet.
Jon sees more value in some of the other teams that are projected with high win totals like the reigning AFC Champion Kansas City Chiefs. Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs’ offensive line got bullied in the Super Bowl last year, and even though they added a few pieces including trading for pro bowl left tackle Orlando Brown Jr. from the Ravens, Jon still questions if they did enough to protect Mahomes for 17-games. Many teams will look at that Super Bowl game with the Bucs and see the blueprint for beating Mahomes is constant pressure, and Jon isn’t confident that the Chiefs’ line can hold up for an entire season.
With so many storylines and practically infinite ways to cash-in on the coming NFL season, it’s no wonder that Jon Price and other professional sports bettors like him have already begun preparing for the coming NFL season. Many professional bettors like Jon like to jump on the picks as soon as they’re released by Vegas so he can get the maximum value, as opposed to waiting for the public money to come in and change the lines. In addition to the over/under win totals for the teams that Jon has already discussed, here’s a list of the rest of the win projections from the bookmakers in Vegas.
