As the National Football League regular season is just around the corner, online bookmakers worth their salt who utilize Price Per Head Services should be catering to NFL betting lines with their customers on a regular basis.
One of the most consistent offerings for sportsbooks worldwide is “win total” – as fans will happily lay their money to back their favorite teams before the Sept. 7 season opener between the Kansas City Chiefs and defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots rolls around.
Not surprisingly, the Patriots are at the top of the list of projected win totals for 2017 – tabbed at most online sites at 12½ wins. On the other hand, sportsbooks only have four other NFL teams projected with double-digit win totals – even with 10 teams finishing the 2016 season with 10 or more regular-season wins.
Here are the Top 5 Plays a Price Per Head Business should consider advertising to their clients before the 2017 season begins:
NFL WIN TOTAL BETTING TOP 5
DETROIT LIONS OVER 8.0 WINS (+120), UNDER 8.0 WINS (-150)
The Detroit Lions have won eight games in three of the last six seasons, and online bookies who use Price Per Head Services aren’t giving the Motor City’s finest most chance despite quarterback Matthew Stafford entering the season without a contract extension. The Lions finished 9-7 last year and made the playoffs, so we think the +120 for OVER 8.0 wins is very attractive.
SEATTLE SEAHAWKS OVER 10.5 WINS (-115), UNDER 10.5 WINS (-115)
One of the better teams of the past 10 seasons, the Seattle Seahawks play just five games in 2017 against teams that made the NFL playoffs last year. The Seahawks topped the NFC West at 10-5 a year ago, which seems good. But the team could only muster 10 wins after it played just four teams that eventually made the postseason. This season likely will see an improvement, with at least 10 wins seeming pretty likely and the Seahawks most likely being a team that gets a lot of attention from a Price Per Head Business client looking for a good OVER play.
CHICAGO BEARS OVER 5.5 WINS (+135), UNDER 5.5 WINS (-165)
One of the most disappointing teams in the NFL, the Chicago Bears have spent the past three seasons playing sub-.500 football. Head coach John Fox’s future is definitely in peril, and another bad start to the season will see him axed before the first snowfall. That said, the Bears offer a great bet on the 5.5 OVER – as there are always a couple wins out there even though Chicago went just 3-13 a year ago (the Bears were 6-10 under Fox in 2015).
The main reason the Bears could be a solid underdog bet to back is that they will play seven games against a team that qualified for last season’s playoffs. That means winning more than five games isn’t out of the question in 2017 for books who use Price Per Head Services.
JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS OVER 6.0 WINS (-165), UNDER 6.0 WINS (+135)
Jacksonville is perhaps the most intriguing team in the NFL this season. The Jaguars won just three times in 2016 and finished in the AFC South cellar. And nine of Jacksonville’s 16 games will come up against teams that finished .500 or better last season. Are the Jaguars improved enough to win double the amount of games they did last season? This is a wager a Price Per Head Business bookmaker may want to promote – even more so if you’re an online bookie with a lot of Jacksonville fans, as casual players will be all over it.
NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS OVER 12.5 WINS (-130), UNDER 12.5 WINS (1/1)
Did you think we would lay off the Patriots? New England won 14 games in the 2016 regular season, while no other team in the AFC won more than 12 games. This season will see New England in seven games against teams that made the playoffs in 2016, including a Super Bowl rematch at home against Atlanta on Oct. 22. In fact, the last time the Patriots didn’t win double-digit games was way back in 2002. On the other hand, last season was the first time since 2011 that Tom Brady and company won more than 12.5 games.
This might be the bet to market to casual players. However, bookmakers who utilize Price Per Head Services would be wise set a max betting limits, just in case. Due to the Patriots success and Brady, the team will see a lot of action. Bets won’t be made just by fans, but by those that despise New England as well.
