Even though the NFL doesn't start for another 58 days (who's counting?), there's already plenty to bet on. FanDuel Sportsbook has season win total numbers up for all 32 NFL teams.

Here are three teams that are likely to go under their projected 2019 win totals, according to the lines set on FanDuel Sportsbook.

3. Cleveland Browns – 9.5 Wins

With all of the hype surrounding the Cleveland Browns this offseason, it's easy to forget that this is a franchise that hasn't made the postseason since 2002. While the Browns should be better than they have been in the past, Cleveland still plays in one of the toughest divisions in football, and is scheduled to play both the Los Angeles Rams and New England Patriots this season. Even with Baker Mayfield entering year two, and the addition of Odell Beckham Jr., it would not be shocking if the Browns failed to reach 10 wins.

2. Green Bay Packers – 9 Wins

The Green Bay Packers went 7-9 last year and failed to make the playoffs for the second straight season. In addition to playing in a division that also features the Minnesota Vikings and the Chicago Bears, the Packers also have to play on the road in Kansas City, on the road against the Chargers in Los Angeles and on the road against a San Francisco 49ers team that should have Jimmy Garoppolo back. Considering how difficult Green Bay's schedule appears to be, the Packers could struggle to reach nine wins.

1. Oakland Raiders – 6.5 Wins

The Oakland Raiders finished last season 4-12, good for last place in the AFC West. While the team did well to acquire star wide receiver Antonio Brown from the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Raiders still have a long way to go if they hope to reach seven wins. In addition to playing both the Chargers and Chiefs twice, the Raiders will also play the Indianapolis Colts, Chicago Bears, Minnesota Vikings, Houston Texans and Tennessee Titans in 2019. With such a difficult schedule, the Raiders could struggle to win more than six games in 2019.
