Are the Patriots going to win the AFC east for an 11th consecutive season? Well duh! Yeah of course they are. At least according to the experts.
BetOnline.ag sets the Patriots over under for wins at 11.5. The Jets and Bills are expected to be competitive but hardly challenge the Pats. Their win totals are set at 7.5

The Dolphins, well, that’s another story. The Fins under new head coach (former Patriots Defensive Coordinator) Brian Flores are in at 4.5 wins for the season.
Miami has already undergone a coaching shakeup, has a brewing quarterback controversy, and an owner who was called out by a player for throwing a Donald Trump fundraiser.
As for the Patriots, they are obviously still the Gold standard in the division. Since the 2001 season the Pats have dominated the AFC East having won 16 of the last 18 division titles, including 10 straight.
Since 2001, New England has never won fewer than 9 games in a season (once) and have averaged 11.6 wins per year. The Patriots have won 12 or more games 8 of the last 9 seasons.
