2018 NFC North Team Over / Under | Captain Kirk to the rescue?

It’s that time. The summer is over, the nights are getting colder, and you can smell football in the air. It’s like Christmas Eve for gamblers. All sorts of prop bets and season bets, along with weekly picks. Good thing for you guys is Streak’n Sports has got you covered.

Let’s get it started with the NFC North. There’s a new sheriff in town this year who goes by the name of Kirk Cousins. Aaron Rodgers is back, but for how long remains to be determined. Matt Stafford is going to throw some lasers as we’ve all become accustomed to, and then we have the Bears who are who we thought they were!! Let’s get it started.

Minnesota Vikings

Over / Under 10

Let’s get this out of the way, the Vikings are still the team to beat in the NFC north. I don’t care that Mr. discount double check is back with his brittle collar bones. The Viking did nothing to get worse. They actually got better in my opinion with the addition of Kirk Cousins. Case Keenum is a bum, and we all know it. He had a stellar defense to carry the team last year. Yes he did have a great completion percentage at 67%, but he averaged 7.4 yards on the season. So he dinked and dunked his way to that.

This is a team that’s built to win. They run the ball and play great defense. The addition of Cousins only makes them better on offense in my opinion. Losing Jerick McKinnon to the 49ers is going to hurt in the passing game, but getting Dalvin Cook back should ease the pain. Defensively, they really didn’t lose much and should maintain that elite defense.

Prediction: (Push)

Green Bay Packers

Over/Under 10

The Green Bay Packers!! One of the most storied franchises in NFL history. Here’s a quote from the infamous Vince LombardiIt’s not whether you get knocked down, it’s whether you get up“. Well, last year their secondary got knocked down and I’m pretty sure they still haven’t gotten back up.

They didn’t do anything to improve the secondary in free agency but they did trade CB Demarious Randall to the Browns for that bum Kizer…. We will leave it at that. All in all the packers just didn’t do that much to improve.

Prediction: (Under)

Detroit Lions

Over / Under 7.5

Some big changes in Detroit this year. The new coaching regime is headed by a rookie head coach in Matt Patricia. Don’t expect him to turn this team in the New England Patriots. This is a team that just never seems to get over the hump. They won a lot of close games last year to get to nine wins. Expect them to lose a couple of those this year and lower that win total.

Prediction: (Under)

Chicago Bears

Over / Under 6.5

The Bears have made some good additions in offense; they finally got themselves a respectable receiving corps with the additions of WR’s Allen Robinson, Taylor Gabriel and TE Trey Burton. Mitch Trubisky should be improved in his second year at the helm. We just don’t know enough about him though to think he can make the big jump and carry this team.

Overall this team should be improved but is it enough to get them to seven wins? Doubt it.

Prediction: (Under)
