2020 NFL win totals, odds, predictions, best bets: Model picks over 6.5 wins for Lions

If everything goes according to plan, the 2020 NFL schedule will get underway on Sept. 10, with the reigning Super Bowl-champion Chiefs slated to host the Texans in a rematch of their Divisional-Round showdown. In January, the Chiefs allowed the game’s first 24 points before storming back to post a 51-31 victory and went on to defeat the Titans and 49ers en route to their first championship since 1969. Should you back the Chiefs with your picks on 2020 NFL win totals?

With the lengthy title drought now over, Kansas City looks to continue its regular-season dominance as it aims to reach double-digit victories for the sixth consecutive campaign and seventh in eight years. The Chiefs and Ravens top the AFC with a projected win total of 11.5 games in the latest 2020 NFL odds from William Hill, while the Saints and Niners are listed at an NFC-high 10.5. Before making any NFL picks on 2020 season-long win totals, be sure to see the latest NFL predictions from SportsLine’s proven computer model

The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every NFL game 10,000 times and has crushed human experts on a consistent basis. Since its 2015 inception, the model is up over $7,000 for $100 players on its top-rated NFL picks.

And when it comes to NFL win totals, the model is coming off another banner year. In 2019, it went 18-11 on its over-under picks, with three pushes.

Now, the model has generated each team’s projected win total, and in many cases it’s strikingly different than the Vegas line. You can head to SportsLine to see the picks.  

The model’s top 2020 NFL win total predictions

One of the 2020 NFL picks the model is recommending: Go over 6.5 wins for the Detroit Lions. The club has registered a total of nine victories over the last two seasons but was without quarterback Matthew Stafford for eight games last year due to a back injury. 

The return of Stafford, who finished only two touchdown passes shy of matching his total from the previous season despite playing half the number of games, figures to be a shot in the arm for Detroit. The team failed to record a win after the 32-year-old went down, going 0-8 with David Blough and Jeff Driskel under center. 

Stafford’s health and improvement from the defense will be instrumental in helping the Lions improve. Detroit was the worst team in the NFL against the pass last season, allowing 284.4 yards per game, and ranked 31st in total defense (400.4 yards), but defensive end Trey Flowers was strong in his first year with the team after spending the previous four in New England. He shared the team lead with seven sacks, just shy of the career-high 7.5 he set in 2018.

The model also generated huge disparities on other teams, including the Packers. Green Bay posted 13 wins in coach Matt LaFleur’s first season after notching only six in 2018 and won the NFC North for the sixth time in nine years. Oddsmakers set Green Bay’s 2020 win total at nine, and the projection model has a strong opinion on the team’s fortunes. You can see every projected win total for every team right here.

So which teams sail past their projected 2020 NFL win totals? What is the model’s surprising forecast for Green Bay? And how many wins will every single NFL team have this season?
