Despite the 2022 offseason nearly being over, with many of the premiere betting opportunities (win totals, outrights) already pounded into place, the books can’t get everything right. 

In this article I go through one bet I like for each NFC East  team.  Enjoy!

Dallas Cowboys (+140 to win the division, season win total of 10)

Bet to Make: CeeDee Lamb +1600 to lead the league in receptions on BetMGM

I’ve made my intentions clear on Lamb, who was the seventh-most-valuable receiver in the NFL in 2021 and is poised to earn even more of the share of the pie in a Cowboys offense that was one of the league’s best.  Add in better health for QB Dak Prescott, and a slight improvement in the strength of the rest of the division, and the volume will be there for the former Oklahoma star.  

Philadelphia Eagles (+160, 9.5)

Bet to Make: HAASON REDDICK +2500 to lead the NFL in sacks on BetMGM

After a weird career start, in which the Cardinals drafted Reddick to be an off-ball linebacker, to a stint in Carolina, where he was extremely productive next to Brian Burns, Reddick returns home to play in the city where he played his college ball at Temple.  The Eagles should be improved everywhere along the defense in 2022, and if that happens, the opportunities to turn pressures into takedowns will be there for Reddick.  Take this long-shot bet.

Washington Commanders (+500, 8)

Bet to Make: BRIAN ROBINSON JR. +6600 to win offensive rookie of the year on BetMGM

The Commanders had one of the best rates of perfectly-blocked runs in 2021, but Antonio Gibson was putrid on such plays.  It’s now being reported that he’s behind the Alabama rookie, Robinson, who was very good at getting the yards afforded to him when he was with the Crimson Tide.  The Commanders have a top-five easy schedule in the NFL this year, which should mean favorable opportunities for their offense.  Get Robinson at this long-shot price.

New York Giants (+750, 7)

Bet to Make: SAQUON BARKLEY over 900.5 rushing yards (-115) on BetMGM

PFF colleague Judah Fortgang recommended a long-shot bet on Kadarius Toney to lead the league in receiving yards.  That’s also a good bet.  However, I like the Barkley bet, as this is likely his last chance to make a name for himself in New York, and by all appearances it looks like Brian Daboll is going to try to squeeze every last bit of value out of the former No. 2 overall pick.  Couple that with improvements to Big Blue's offensive line, and the league’s easiest schedule of opponents, and you have a strong case for Barkley to go over this total.
