As the 2013 NFL season kickoff approaches, now is a great time for predictions regarding the over/unders for each team. It's a fun way to make the season a little more interesting and perhaps get rich!
Or destitute. But I'm a the-scotch-glass-is-half-full type of guy.
Although I suppose that could be the result of winning or losing.
Anyways, the Vegas oddsmakers have had their numbers available for awhile, so it's time to take the plunge and divvy up the loot—or wins.
There are a lot of moving parts that have to be accounted for when taking on a project like this.
First, it isn't a look at each team individually, like the theme might imply. I can't pick 25 teams to win over their slotted number of games and expect everything to even out. Obviously, there are only 256 wins available during the regular season so not every team can be picked to go over, despite all that preseason optimism. Thus, the league is taken as a whole.
Next, if I picked the under for your favorite team, it's because I hate that franchise. There wasn't a stitch of objective analysis or roster evaluation involved. Just pure spite.
I'm petty like that.
So click through to find out the victims of my ill will. And hopefully make a few dollars.
