NFL bettors by now are craving for a good bet while waiting for the 2017 NFL regular season to kick off in September.

The Draft and other prop bets have placated the bettors somewhat but they are impatiently waiting first for the August preseason then the opening kickoff.

Nevertheless, there are futures bets available of which one is the win totals for every NFL team. The win totals for the NFL regular were released in May, with the action on this prop picking up more and more as the regular season approaches.

Here are a few things to know about the most consistent over- and under-achievers when trying to decide your best bet on the NFL win totals for 2017.

Houston’s win total was released at 8.5.

New England was the second best Over bet for win totals the past 10 seasons, cashing the Over in 7 of the last 10 seasons. New England has won the AFC East in 13 of the past 14 seasons and has been victorious in 12 games or more in each of the past 7 seasons.

This season the Patriots were given a win total of 12.5, which is the highest total dating back to the 2001 season for any NFL team.
