With the 2018 NFL season kicking off next Thursday, it's getting down to crunch time to get in your season-long NFL bets. 


And, if you're interested in playing the entire league, we've found solid odds on PaddyPower.com that could net you a nice payday if all 32 NFL teams score at least 250 points this year.

The line has been set at 6/1, nabbing you a solid return if every team scores more than 250 total points. At first glance, this may seem low, but when you take a look at the numbers, it's not that crazy. It also should be noted this includes points scored on both offense and defense. 


In 2017, every team in the league reached this milestone, except for two. Those two teams were the 0-16 Cleveland Browns and the New York Giants, who were decimated by injuries on offense. 


Despite both of those teams going under, it wasn't by much. The Browns and the Giants scored 234 and 246 points, respectively. That's a few touchdowns called back on holding penalties away from scoring more than 250. Both the Browns and the Giants have improved their offenses this offseason, so one has to assume they would be safe to hit the 250-point mark based on that. 


The three teams closest to the 250-point line last season were the Dolphins, Bears, and Colts. The Dolphins and Colts are both returning their franchise quarterbacks from injury, which should provide added offense. The Bears' Mitchell Trubisky is entering his sophomore season, and if he can avoid the dreaded sophomore slump, you'd expect him to improve this year as well.


While betting on bad teams to score points could be a worrisome venture, based on last year, it doesn't look as scary as it sounds.
