The projected win totals for 2019 have come out for the NFL, and the Colts’ number is under the amount of wins they had in 2018.
A lot of teams have improved in the offseason. The Colts are definitely one of those teams. According to Vegas though, they did not improve enough. Win total projections have been released, and the Colts’ number is at 9.5, which is under the 10 they had last season.
In addition to that, there are five other teams projected to have better records than the Colts. Those teams are the Patriots, Chiefs, Rams, Saints, and Chargers. Some of those make sense, but a couple of them are baffling as well.
It makes sense for the Patriots, Chiefs, and Rams to be up there, and maybe the Saints too. But to have the Chargers projected to win more seems reckless to me. They haven’t signed any huge free agents, and their offense gets bogged down with inconsistency.
Regardless of that, 9.5 wins seems to be a little low for the Colts. They do play a tougher schedule than they did a year ago, but they are a better team than they were a year ago too. They have added two good pieces in Devin Funchess and Justin Houston.
All of the young players they have also will be better with an entire offseason under their belt. Based on all of that, if I were a betting man, I would take the over on this for sure. The Colts should be one of the teams to beat their projected win total.
