With the 2014 preseason approaching faster than a speeding locomotive (okay, make that a monorail express train) let’s get started.
My 2014 NFL Season Total Wins Over/Under Betting Picks
Arizona Cardinals – 2014 Regular Season Win Total
Analysis: The Arizona Cardinals went 10-6 in head coach Bruce Arians first season and I believe they’re going to come back with another similar season for the 2014 campaign.
Despite playing in the same division as the powerful Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks and the perennially title-contending, San Francisco 49ers, Arizona looked mostly fantastic all season long, but particularly down the stretch.
Arizona ranked fifth in total defense and seventh in points allowed (20.2 ppg) as they routinely put the clamps on opponents with their league-leading run defense (84.4 ypg).
The Cards do need to shore up their mediocre offense as they finished just 13th in passing and 23rd in rushing, but I think the Over 7½ wins is an absolute lock for Arizona this coming season.

I like the Cards to go 2-1 over the first four weeks with home wins over San Diego and San Francisco sandwiching a road loss to the Giants. Following their Week 4 bye, I think the Cards lose at Denver before beating Washington and Oakland before falling to Philly at home in a thriller.
Three straight wins over Dallas, St. Louis and Detroit should give Arizona seven wins at this point. Unfortunately I see a pair of road losses coming at Seattle and Atlanta before the Cards get back in the win column in Week 14 at home against Kansas City.
I see the Cardinals closing out the regular season with a pair of losses at the Rams and Niners sandwiching a Week 16 win at home against Seattle. Arizona will either go 9-7 or possibly 10-6 again in 2014, but either way, they easily top their 7½-win Over/Under Total.
My Pick: Arizona Cardinals 9-7
Philadelphia Eagles – 2014 Regular Season Win Total
Analysis: The Philadelphia Eagles had a fine season under first-year head coach Chip Kelly. The Birds went 10-6 to win the NFC East by two games and reach the postseason before being promptly dispatched by New Orleans during Wild Card weekend.
Still, I like the Eagles to either hit their nine-win O/U Total number right on the mark on top it by one game thanks mostly to a stellar offense that ranked ninth in passing and first in rushing.

I’ve got Philly winning at home against Jacksonville, Washington, New York, Tennessee, St. Louis and Dallas while beating Arizona, Houston, Dallas and Washington on the road. I think Philly will lose at Indianapolis, San Francisco, Green Bay and New York while possibly falling at home to Carolina, Seattle and
My Pick: Philadelphia Eagles 10-6
Carolina Panthers – 2014 Regular Season Win Total
Analysis: The Carolina Panthers will look to build on their fantastic 2013 campaign in which they won a whopping 12 games to reach the postseason for the first time in five seasons. Carolina was an absolute monster on defense as they finished the 2013 season ranked sixth against the pass and second against the run.
Now, the Panthers look like a virtual lock to top their modest Over/Under total for the 2014 regular season. I like Carolina to win on the road against Tampa Bay, Philadelphia, Minnesota and Cleveland and at home against the Lions, Steelers, Bears, Seahawks, Saints, Falcons and Buccaneers. I also believe Carolina will lose on the road to Baltimore, Cincinnati, Green Bay and Atlanta.

By my count, it’s very conceivable that Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers could very well duplicate their stellar 12-4 record from a year ago. Even if the Panthers drop another game or two more than what I have on my board, they’ll still play Over their set O/U Total with room to spare.
My Pick: Carolina Panthers 12-4
So, there you have it, three NFL teams that all look like they are closer to ‘lock’ selections than anything else.
