After going 10-6, being the only team to defeat the Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks at CenturyLink Field and narrowly missing the playoffs in 2013, there is plenty of optimism about the Arizona Cardinals.

The LVH sports book in Las Vegas has dampened a little of that optimism. Monday, their oddsmakers released their list of 2014 NFL season win totals.

The Cardinals’ total? A paltry 7.5 — the same number as the Houston Texans, New York Giants, St. Louis Rams and Washington Redskins. Again, the Cardinals won 10 games a year ago, while those four teams combined to go 19-45.

Either the oddsmakers aren’t convinced the Cardinals were that good a year ago or they believe life in the NFC West will be even more treacherous this season.

The teams with the highest win totals, not surprisingly, are the Seahawks and Denver Broncos, with 11. Those two teams met in Super Bowl XLVIII last February in East Rutherford, NJ.

Denver Broncos 11 13-3
Seattle Seahawks 11 13-3
