Time to take our weekly look at the NFL Future Market via PointsBet. Nothing much has changed but we do have the first pieces of the puzzle. Here are some futures to invest in today: 

 

Regular Season Win Totals 

 

New York Giants Under 5.5 Wins (+110) - The New York Giants need to start over but no one wants to admit it. Daniel Jones is a turnover machine that has shown very little-to-no improvement as a quarterback. The defense may not be as good as it looked last season and the offense looks primitive. It’s going to be another long season for NYG fans. 

 

Houston Texans Over 4.5 Wins (+100) - It will be close but worth the risk. The Texans should be able to win four more games this season. They have another game vs. the Jaguars and they play the Jets. I think they can find two more wins outside of those games. Tyrod Taylor brings a veteran presence and a steady hand at quarterback. This is a veteran bunch that will go out and compete every week.

Atlanta Falcons Under 5.5 Wins (+115) - BRUH. The Falcons need to trade Matt Ryan to the Washington Football Team, throw in the towel on this season and start scouting quarterbacks for the 2022 NFL Draft. The Matty Ice era is over, it's time for a new vision in Atlanta. 

 

Pittsburgh Steelers Over 8.5 (-115) - I still believe Ben Roethlisberger will flame out at some point during the season, but in the early part of the year, the Steelers will be competitive. The bottom line is Mike Tomlin will get this team to at least 9 wins. 

 

NFC West Champions 

 

Arizona Cardinals +500 - There is a lot of talk this week about the NFC West being the best division in football and I would agree with that. The Rams and 49ers are viewed as the class of the division with the Seahawks right behind them. The Cardinals have the longest odds to win the division at +500. They are not that far behind the rest of the division. This is a value. 

 

NFC East Champions 

 

Philadelphia Eagles +300 - I know it was just a few weeks ago when I said Eagles head coach Nick Siriani was in over his head. After one game, that could still very well be true, but welcome to the NFC East where everyone could be in over their heads. The Cowboys still can't defend, the Giants are wretched and the Football Team is down their starting quarterback already.
