Every year, NFL junkies get their hands on Las Vegas over/under lines before the season starts. For those not familiar with this it’s pretty simple. After the NFL draft, Vegas odds makers assess each team’s draft and free agency moves along with each team’s strength of schedule. They come up with an expected win total and attach a 1/2 game to ensure no ties on bets. Along with this, there are odds assigned to either taking the under or over on this number of wins. So for example, the Colts over/under number is 10.5 wins. The odds on taking the OVER 10.5 is -140 and UNDER 10.5 is +120. This means if you think the Colts will win 10 games or less, you will win $120 for every $100 you bet. And if you think they’ll win 11 games or more, you’ll have to bet $140 to win $100.
