Chip Kelly had a great line in his chat with Sports Illustrated's Peter King on predicting the future: "No one knows. I don’t know. I don’t know anybody that does know."
One group of people who do think they know are oddsmakers and sports books out in Las Vegas. There are literally millions of dollars riding on their knowledge and ability to predict how NFL teams will do each year.
The oddsmakers over Bovada released their over/under win totals for the 2014 campaign and here is how they see the NFC East:
Washington Redskins - 2014 Regular Season Win Total
Over 7½ (-125)
Under 7½ (-105)
Dallas Cowboys - 2014 Regular Season Win Total
Over 7½ (EVEN)
Under 7½ (-130)
New York Giants - 2014 Regular Season Win Total
Over 8 (-130)
Under 8 (EVEN)
Philadelphia Eagles - 2014 Regular Season Win Total
Over 9 (-140)
Under 9 (+110)
Notice the extra -140 on the over bet for the Birds at 9 games.
If you read our post last week, you'll remember Kulp predicted a record of 10-6 identical to their 2013 season.
Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos have the highest over/under line at 11.5 games with the New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks both set at 11 games. The Green Bay Pakcers were close with a 10.5 game mark as well.
