2022 NFL Season: What teams are getting the most offseason hype?

2022 NFL Season: What teams are getting the most offseason hype?

It happens every year. A few teams get some serious offseason hype. This is due to various reasons. Usually, it is the teams that have had an active offseason or excellent drafts. This hype is usually misguided and will lead to some bad bets on teams that never live up to the expectations. Here are the teams that are getting some serious hype heading into the 2022 NFL season.

Believing the Hype

Picking the overhyped NFL teams is based on the opening Super Bowl odds and how they have changed. As well as polls and just listening to the NFL fans bark about the upcoming season. Certain teams that made the list may surprise you, but others make this list year after year.

Detroit Lions

A year ago the Detroit Lions were one of the worst teams in the National Football League. This year they are getting some hype. Although no one outside of Motown believes they will win the Super Bowl, everyone believes this team will be vastly improved. Head coach Dan Campbell has this team playing hard and if you want proof, we got it. The Lions were a league-best 11-6 against the spread (ATS) last season. This is more impressive considering that the Lions were always listed as an underdog. In fact, they are 7-3 ATS when closing as an underdog of at least a touchdown. Detroit will be better this year and it is time to believe the hype.

Verdict: Believe the hype

Bet to make: Lions Over 6.5 wins

 

San Francisco 49ers

Someone, please tell me why everyone is buying into the 49ers this year? The organization is fumbling the Jimmy Garoppolo situation and the transition to Trey Lance is a hot mess. Not to mention the Deebo Samuel disruption that is overshadowing the offseason. With a revamped offensive line and breaking in a quarterback, the 49ers are due for an ugly season.

Verdict: Don’t believe the hype

Bet to make: Wager on this 49ers play

 

New England Patriots

Bill Belichick and Mac Jones is a match made in heaven. After a successful rookie campaign, the Pats fans believe that New England is ready to once again be a mainstay in the playoffs. What the fans are overlooking is the nightmare NFL draft and the bad selections, especially in the first round. New England made minimal moves and although they had improvements at the wide receiver position by getting DeVante Parker, they did not keep up with the rest of the teams in the division. The boys in Vegas don’t believe in the Patriots as the odds suggest they will miss the playoffs and I agree.

Verdict: Don’t believe the hype

Bet to make:  Patriots to miss the playoffs (-200)

 

Buffalo Bills

When I originally wrote this article, I did not have the Bills on the list. Yet I was quickly reminded just how much hype Buffalo is getting coming into this season.

The Bill’s odds suggest that they are the favorite to win the Super Bowl, leaping over Tom Brady and the Buccaneers and Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs. The problem is that this team has a tough schedule to navigate this season and they are not used to the pressure of being the favorites. They are a very good team and will make the playoffs, but they are overhyped heading into the season.

Verdict: Don’t believe the hype

Bet to make: Bills under 11.5 wins

 

 

2022 NFL season Honorable mentions

Baltimore Ravens

The Ravens had an incredible draft and will be fully recovered after their team was decimated by injuries a year ago. However, they still have to figure out the contract situation of quarterback Lamar Jackson. Although Jackson will be playing with a chip on his shoulder he is hoping to score with an offense that lacks firepower. They are going to be a good team, and have the coaching staff and personnel to win this season.

Verdict: Believe the hype

Bet to make: Ravens to win the AFC North

 

 

New York Jets

It is a surprise to see that the Jets are getting so much hype. This is mainly fueled by the draft class that they acquired. It is very impressive and the draft fills positions of need for the Jets who have to navigate a difficult AFC East. Ultimately New York’s success will come down to how coach Robert Saleh can protect and improve the play of quarterback Zach Wilson. The Jets are heading in the right direction, but it won’t happen this season.

Verdict: Don’t believe the hype

Bet: Jets to finish 3rd in the AFC East +350
