The Jacksonville Jaguars drastically remade their organization this year. New coach Urban Meyer will make his NFL debut after several years away from the college gridiron. The NFL Draft turned into a Clemson postgraduate party, as the Jaguars selected former Tigers quarterback Trevor Lawrence with the first overall pick and teammate Travis Etienne at pick No. 25. Can you trust the Jaguars to surpass six victories, one of the lowest 2021 NFL win totals?
With improvement on offense and one more game to play, how many wins can the Jaguars expect in 2021? Selecting over or under six wins means evaluating the latest NFL odds and taking a side. Before making any NFL picks on 2021 season-long win totals, be sure to see the latest NFL predictions from SportsLine’s top NFL handicapper, R.J. White.
CBS Sports’ Fantasy and gambling editor, White ended the 2020 season on an 80-59 run on all NFL picks, returning more than $1,400 during that span. It’s no surprise, as White has cashed huge twice in the world’s most prestigious football handicapping competition, the Las Vegas SuperContest.
Beyond his weekly SuperContest column, While consistently crushes the NFL. Along with ending the 2020 season as SportsLine’s No. 1 NFL expert, he went 354-295-22 on NFL picks against the spread from 2017-20, returning $2,613 to $100 players. White has many years of experience analyzing NFL statistics and trends, beginning with Super Bowl XXV, and it shows in his insightful writeups and winning NFL picks.
Now, White has targeted five 2021 NFL win totals with his best bets following the Draft. You can head to SportsLine to see them.
Top 2021 NFL win total predictions
White says you should go under eight wins for the Washington Football Team. The former Redskins went 7-9 in 2020, yet somehow won a depleted NFC East.
With Dolphins castoff Ryan Fitzpatrick now at the helm of the offense, the quarterback carousel that featured Dwayne Haskins, Kyle Allen and and Alex Smith last season could finally grind to a halt. Still, Fitzpatrick is 38 years old and has plenty of miles on him, so hoping he can endure a full 17-game season might be too much to ask.
The abomination that was the NFC East can only get better, too, as Dallas welcomes back quarterback Dak Prescott and Philadelphia may have Jalen Hurts under center. Washington was dealt no favors by the NFL, either, getting a tough slate outside the NFC East as well.
“Washington just barely edged Philadelphia for the second-lowest point total in the NFC, and the division should be much stronger this year,” White told SportsLine. “Washington has a brutal home non-conference schedule (Chiefs, Bucs, Saints, Seahawks, Chargers), and the additional 17th game is at Buffalo. Fade this team to finish with a winning record.”
