The Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook has released its 2015 NFL Win Totals following the NFL Draft. What can the win totals tell us about the upcoming NFL season?

The Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks are expected to be the class of the league with over/under win totals posted at 11 games. The Indianapolis Colts and New England Patriots follow close behind with win totals of 10.5.

Despite drafting franchise quarterbacks (they hope), the Tennessee Titans (5.5 wins) and Tampa Bay Buccaneers (6 wins) are likely to pick near the top of the draft again next year.

Only thirteen teams are expected to improve off of their 2014 record. The rest of the league has posted win totals below the number of victories from last season.

The Pittsburgh Steelers, Arizona Cardinals and Detroit Lions all won 11 games a year ago; each team has a win total of 8.5 games. After making last year's playoffs all three franchises could be on the sidelines when the 2015 postseason kicks off.

Bouncing back? After trading Jimmy Graham and with an aging Drew Brees, some have suggested that the Saints are at the end of an era. The oddsmakers aren't buying it. New Orleans opened with the highest win total in the NFC South.

Parity is the name of the game. There are 19 teams that are expected to finish close to .500 with posted lines between seven and nine wins

Of course these lines will move as the season approaches for numerous reasons, one being suspensions of star players. Do you think Tom Brady will miss games because of Deflategate? Then you might consider taking the under on the Patriots.

How many wins will your favorite team get in 2015?
