The start of the 2019 NFL season may still be several months away, but there are already plenty of markets to bet on after Las Vegas sportsbook operator CG Technologies unveiled their individual team win totals for the upcoming season. However, as per the numbers released by The lines.com, it would appear that the bookmaker does not have too much faith in the Pittsburgh Steelers this year.
An opening total of just nine wins is far from inspiring, matching the disappointment of 2018, with a repeat performance sure to see the Steelers miss the playoff for a second year in a row. Despite the current hype surrounding the Cleveland Browns, it is interesting to note that they have also opened with the same win total, while the Baltimore ravens are just half a game back at 8.5 wins. The Cincinnati Bengals are unsurprisingly at the back of the pack in the AFC North with a win total of six.
New England take the top spot overall with a projected win total of 11, with the Kansas City Chiefs, New Orleans Saints and Los Angeles Rams all tied for second place at 10.5 wins. It would also appear that both Antonio Brown and Le’Veon Bell should prepare for their first ever losing seasons as professionals, with the New York Jets win total set at seven and the Oakland Raiders at six.
The full list as per The Lines.com.
These lines are now available to be backed at multiple Las Vegas locations, with CG Technologies operating sportsbooks at the Venetian, Palazzo, Tropicana, Hard Rock, Palms and more.
