NFL Futures: Betting tips for 2022 win totals

Erin Dolan,: Kansas City Chiefs under 10.5 wins (+105). This is the year the Chiefs will take a hit in a loaded AFC West division. 

 They no longer have Tyreek Hill and have a tough strength of schedule. Kansas City faces the Cardinals, Chargers, Colts, Buccaneers, Raiders, Bills and 49ers in the seven weeks before its bye.

 Then after the bye the Chiefs have to face teams like the Titans, Rams and Bengals. I think this win total shifts after the first few weeks. 

Joe Fortenbaugh: Chicago Bears under 6.5 wins (-115). The Bears' decision to trade Khalil Mack this offseason in exchange for draft picks made Chicago's short-term approach crystal clear. 

Aaron Schatz, Football Outsiders editor-in-chief: Philadelphia Eagles over 9.0 wins (-145). The Eagles are my favorite win total this year, although I would prefer to be getting better odds than -145. 

Anita Marks, ESPN betting analyst: Pittsburgh Steelers over 7.5 wins (+110). To steal a line from Rodney Dangerfield, "No respect ... I tell ya!" Mitch Trubisky is getting no respect. 

Seth Walder, sports analytics writer: San Francisco 49ers under 10 wins (-110). Get in now before the 49ers trade Jimmy Garoppolo and seal their fate with an unknown at quarterback.
