Preseason NFL Over/Under Predictions Review: An exercise in mediocrity.

With the regular season in the rearview, it is time to see how Bruce and I did on our win total predictions.

NFC

Seahawks 9.5UnderOver

Lions 6.5OverOver
NFC South
Saints 10.5OverOver
Buccaneers 9.5UnderUnder
Falcons 7.5OverOver
Panthers 5.5UnderUnder

So, in the NFC, I was 8-8, while Bruce was also 8-8. We actually don’t differed on two and split those. I was exactly 2-2 in every division.

AFC

Colts 8.5OverUnder

In the AFC, I completely whiffed on the East, but still managed to go 8-7-1, with a push on the Ravens. Bruce went 4-4 in the West and 3-1 in the East, but whiffed on the South. He finished 8-7-1 as well.

Overall

So in total, we both went 16-15-1. A futile exercise indeed.

I typically play a few season win totals. I didn’t this year due to the Covid uncertainty. That turned out to be a good call, as it would have tied up money for a while that likely would have just broke even.
