It’s August, which means it’s time to break down Las Vegas over/under win totals. While my teammates Brad Evans and Tank Williams handled the standard over/under lines you’ll find in Nevada sports books, here are some entirely made up over/unders for each team in the NFC South (we’ll be doing every division this week) as the preseason gets into full swing: 

CAROLINA PANTHERS
Number of passes Cam Newton will throw this preseason: 0.5

Are we freaked out about Newton yet? He hasn’t gotten his full reps in practice for at least a week, and video of him lightly throwing to the side doesn’t exactly calm any fears that Newton’s shoulder is still not 100 percent. Newton probably will play in this preseason, but we might be one more setback away from the Panthers not risking it and waiting for him to return to a game in Week 1. The Panthers aren’t going anywhere without Newton. His cannon right arm needs to be healthy and we’re all waiting to see him get a clean bill of health. THE PICK: OVER

NEW ORLEANS SAINTS
Yards for Adrian Peterson this preseason: 81.5

We all knew the deal with Peterson during Minnesota Vikings preseason games: He wasn’t going to play. The last time Peterson touched the ball in a preseason game was 2011. But this is a new team and a new role. Peterson isn’t the unquestioned starter like he was in Minnesota. The Saints might not ride the 32-year-old Peterson hard in preseason – the team hasn’t divulged the plans for him in August – but it seems like he’ll play. Peterson said he was anxious to play in the preseason. Peterson isn’t going to grind out 15 carries in each game like some undrafted rookie, but it seems like we’ll see him a bit … just not too much. THE PICK: UNDER
