There are going to be some very competitive division battles throughout the NFL this season, but you aren’t likely to find that in the NFC South. This division should be dominated by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and the rest of the three teams will be looking to make a surprising run.
Betting on regular season win totals is usually done before the season begins, but you can actually make this bet whenever. The betting odds for the win totals will be updated as the season moves along.
Here are the projected win totals and the odds for all of the teams in the NFC South Division:
- Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Over 11.5 (+105) Under 11.5 (-125)
- New Orleans Saints: Over 8.5 (+105) Under 8.5 (-125)
- Carolina Panthers: Over 6.5 (+105) Under 6.5 (-125)
- Atlanta Falcons: Over 4.5 (-120) Under 4.5 (+100)
Buccaneers Back With Brady
When the regular season win total odds first came out, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were not expected to be a runaway favorite to win the division. That has since changed now that Tom Brady is back with the team and ready to lead the way.
Tampa Bay has a projected win total of 11.5 wins in 2022, and that is near the top of the NFL. The odds tell you that the Buccaneers are more likely to have less than 11 wins than to win 12, but there isn’t a big difference in those odds.

Who Finishes Second?
Even though it is widely assumed that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are going to run away with the division title, surprises always happen in every division. If Tampa Bay is going to play as well as expected, then the real race will be for second place.
A quick look at the projected win totals shows you that the NFC South might only get one playoff team this season unless a team is able to play above expectations. The NFC South could also have a team or two that really struggles during this season.
The New Orleans Saints have a win total set at 8.5 wins, and this is a team that is hard to handicap. New Orleans has enough talent to compete with Tampa Bay, but they have yet to prove that they can be consistent enough.
The Carolina Panthers still have some work to do before they are going to be considered as a playoff contender. Even if Carolina goes over the projected win total and gets to seven wins, they are still going to fall short of the postseason.
Atlanta is going to be one of the worst teams in the NFL this season, at least according to the projected win totals. The Falcons no longer have Matt Ryan at the quarterback position, and that is going to be a serious problem for that offense.
