As mandatory minicamps wrap up across the NFL this week, we prepare to enter the quietest a part of the NFL calendar. Nonetheless, after a temporary pause that lasts a bit of over a month, training camps will begin and from there, it’s game on. We’re under two months away from preseason football, fantasy football preparation and far deeper dives into the betting marketplace for the upcoming season.
While football won’t be within the air just yet, there’s already loads of betting markets posted at BetMGM for the upcoming season. You may bet on teams to win the Super Bowl or their conference and division within the futures market. You may bet the over or under on teams’ win totals and whether or not they’ll make the playoffs. You may bet on end of season awards, and you may even bet on the Week 1 games already. Today, we’re taking a take a look at an interesting market available at BetMGM. Which team will rating essentially the most points throughout the regular season, and which team will rating the fewest?
Buffalo Bills favored to steer league in points
Last regular season, the Buffalo Bills scored a complete of 483 points, for a median of 28.4 points per game. This ranked third within the NFL, but in 2022, they’re the favorites to steer the league in scoring. Buffalo is currently +600 to attain essentially the most points of any NFL team this season.
The Bills are the recent team within the betting market to open the preseason. Buffalo is the present favorite to win the Super Bowl at +650, and Josh Allen is the betting favorite to win the MVP at +700. Allen continues to grow to be one among the league’s best quarterbacks, so it would not be a stretch to see him take one other step forward and for the Bills to have the best scoring offense within the league.

Last 12 months’s highest scoring team might come as a little bit of a surprise, because it was the Dallas Cowboys. Dallas scored 530 points and were the one NFL team to average over 31 points per game. This 12 months, the Cowboys are 12-to-1 to repeat that feat, tied for the fifth best odds with the Cincinnati Bengals and Los Angeles Rams.
It’ll be tough for Dallas to repeat that accomplishment, as Amari Cooper was traded to Cleveland and Michael Gallup will likely miss the primary few months of the season attributable to rehab of his torn ACL. Ceedee Lamb can be expected to take an enormous step forward for the Cowboys.
The Kansas City Chiefs, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Los Angeles Chargers are tied for the second best odds to steer the league in scoring at +800.
Kansas City finished fourth in scoring last season, despite the weird middle a part of the season where Patrick Mahomes attempting to determine a Cover 2 defense looked like me attempting to determine calculus in college. In fact, Kansas City also lost their most dynamic weapon over the offseason in Tyreek Hill.
The Buccaneers finished second in scoring last season, and at this point, we must always all have learned to not doubt Tom Brady. Nonetheless, he can be 45 years old by the season opener and already flirted with retirement. He’ll even be without Chris Godwin for a big a part of the primary half of the season, as he too recovers from an ACL injury.
The Chargers finished fifth in scoring last season, and Justin Herbert continues to enhance and grow to be one among the league’s best quarterbacks. At +800, I do not mind the Chargers here as their offense actually has explosive potential.
Bears, Texans favored to attain the fewest points
Now that we have taken a take a look at which teams oddsmakers expect to have good offenses, we’d like to try the opposite side of the spectrum.
Heading into the season, the Chicago Bears and Houston Texans are co-favorites to attain the fewest points in 2022. Each teams share lots of similarities. They enter the 12 months with second-year quarterbacks who flashed, but still have loads of query marks surrounding them. In addition they have a dearth of weapons to surround these quarterbacks with. Each teams also hired defensive minded head coaches this past offseason.
Houston scored the third-fewest points last 12 months, averaging 16.5 points per game. Davis Mills was surprisingly competent, but not lots of people consider there’s much to the third-round pick’s game. Brandin Cooks is a solid No. 1 receiver, but beyond him, the Texans can be counting on lots of children like John Metchie, Nico Collins and Brevin Jordan to make plays and catch passes. They picked up Marlon Mack, who will compete for carries with Rex Burkhead and rookie Dameon Pierce. Houston is +550 to attain the fewest points in football.
Chicago scored 18.3 points per game in 2021, the sixth-lowest mark within the league. This offseason, they didn’t do much to surround Justin Fields with playmakers. Darnell Mooney is a promising receiver, nevertheless it’s hard to think about him a No. 1 receiver on this league. Behind him, the Bears can be counting on Byron Pringle and 25-year old rookie Velus Jones. David Montgomery is a solid running back and Cole Kmet has potential at tight end, however the weapons are actually lacking and there is definitely questions on the quarterback position. The Bears are also +550 to attain the fewest points within the league.
Last season, the Jacksonville Jaguars had the bottom scoring team within the NFL, but oddsmakers don’t expect that to occur again. The Jaguars are 30-to-1 to attain the fewest points within the league. Those are the identical odds because the Miami Dolphins, and 13 teams have worse odds including teams just like the Browns, Saints and Patriots. That looks as if a bit of an excessive amount of respect for Jacksonville, but Urban Meyer is gone and a second-year leap from Trevor Lawrence seems very likely.
