Here are Jawnville’s 2015 NFL Predictions based on current Vegas odds.

For starters, Sam Bradford will be the Philadelphia Eagles starting QB on Week 1. Bradford to start Week 1 is at -450. For non-degenerates, that means you’d have to risk $450 to win $100. Betting that Sanchez starts Week 1 nets you +265 (that’s $265 for every $100 bet). Those odds are pretty heavy that Vegas believes Bradford starts.

Below are the predicted standings and win/loss records based on the odds for the total wins over/under for each team.

NFC EAST:
1. Dallas Cowboys 10-6 (over 9.5 is -120)
2. Philadelphia Eagles 9-7 (under 9.5 is -155)
3. New York Giants 8-8 (under 8.5 is -160)
4. Washington 6-10 (under 6.5 is -160)

NFC NORTH:
1. Green Bay 12-4 (over 11 is -115)
2. Detroit 8-8 (under 8.5 is -145)
3. Minnesota 8-8 (over 7 is -215)
4. Chicago 7-9 (under 7.5 is -170)

NFC SOUTH:
1. New Orleans 9-7 (over 8.5 is -120)
2. Atlanta 8-8 (under 8.5 is -115)
3. Carolina 8-8 (under 8.5 is -135)
4. Tampa Bay 5-11 (under 6 is -120)

NFC WEST:
1. Seattle 12-4 (over 11 is -140)
2. Arizona 9-7 (over 8.5 is -145)
3. St. Louis 7-9 (under 8 is -145)
4. San Francisco 6-10 (under 7.5 is -240)

The NFC teams with the best odds to make the Playoffs are: Seattle, Green Bay, Dallas, Eagles, New Orleans, Carolina.

Carolina is an odd choice because Falcons odds to go over are 8.5 are better than Carolina, but odds to make the Playoffs are Panthers +130 and Falcons are +140.

AFC EAST:
1. New England 10-6 – there are no current odds due to deflategate.
2. Miami 9-6  (over 8.5 is -200)
3. Buffalo 9-7 (over 8.5 is -120)
4. New York – 8-8 (over 7.5 is -145)

AFC NORTH:
1. Baltimore 10-6 (over 9.5 is -135)
2. Pittsburgh 9-7 (over 8.5 is -130)
3. Cincinnati 9-7 (over 8.5 is -135)
4. Cleveland 6-10 (under 6.5 is -145)

AFC SOUTH:
1. Indianapolis 11-5 (over 10.5 is -175)
2. Houston 9-7 (over 8.5 is -140)
3. Jacksonville 6-10 (over 5.5 is -145)
4. Tennessee 5-11 (under 5.5 is -120)

AFC WEST:
1. Denver 10-6 (under 10.5 is -170)
2. Kansas City 9-7 (over 8.5 is -145)
3. San Diego 8-8 (under 8.5 is -135)
4. Oakland 6-10 (over/under 5.5 are both -110)

Teams with the best odds to make the AFC Playoffs are: New England* (no odds yet), Indianapolis, Denver, Baltimore, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati.

AFC North looks to be a brutal conference with three solid teams.
