On Sunday, we shared some information regarding the projected win totals at the top of the league, from the Westgate Suprbook. The more interesting numbers reside at the bottom.
USA Today has the full list. And it shows the Browns — who have won a total of four games in three seasons combined — at 5.5 wins. It also shows the Cardinals at 5.5 wins. (What’s worse? Being below six or having the same number as the Browns?)
Despite the fact that the Patriots’ projected win total for wagering purposes is only 11, the other three teams in the division are at 6.5 (Buffalo) or lower (the Dolphins and Jets are each at six).
Eighteen teams fit with the range from seven wins to 9.5, underscoring the notion that, for much of the league, parity is a baked-in reality.
