    It pays to be a member of the Oakland Raiders -- but only if the pay is extraordinary.

    The Raiders are the least desirable team to play for in the NFL, according to an NFL Nation Confidential survey posed to 100-plus players on the following question:

    "The only way I'd play for [team name] is if they doubled my salary."

    Of the 82 players who answered, 23 percent named the Raiders, followed by the Buffalo Bills (19 percent), Cleveland Browns (16 percent), Jacksonville Jaguars (9 percent) and Green Bay Packers (6 percent). These are tough times for the Raiders, who have endured 11 consecutive nonwinning seasons and last reached the postseason in 2002 -- the season the Tampa Bay Buccaneers routed them in the Super Bowl.

    What about the Redskins? Isn't Dan Snyder considered one of the NFLs worst owners?

    I think only because he severely overpays for mediocre talent.

    The only worst fans besides Raiders fan are Buckeyes fans. Ohio State fans are lowlifes.

    Marshawn Lynch was excited to be drafted by Buffalo.

    Then he learned it wasn't in New York City. :rofl:

    you better pipe down shorty. you talked the A's into a huge slump and now you're trying to do the same for the raiders.

    because of that, i will downgrade my prediction for them to 3-13.

    Many sports bettors apparently are expecting the Bears to perform well this season. (USATSI)
    More NFL: Photos | Videos & GIFs | Training Camp updates | Manziel watch

    As all 32 teams are now in training camp and as each squad's fan base fantasizes about the playoff run they know their favorite organization can make this year, we now have over-under odds on how many wins everybody can expect.

    Here's the list of all 32 teams and their over-under win totals heading into the 2014 season, via Bovada. And if you'd like to do more research, you can check out CBSSports.com's Will Brinson's predictions from May (here are his AFC picks and his NFC picks).

    (And for the record, I'd have no idea what to do about the Browns, Lions and Giants. But here's what I can tell you: I'd go under all day on the Texans and I'd go over on the Jaguars).

    Arizona Cardinals -- 7.5

    Atlanta Falcons -- 8.5

    Baltimore Ravens -- 8.5

    Buffalo Bills -- 6.5

    Carolina Panthers -- 8.5

    Chicago Bears -- 8.5

    Cincinnati Bengals -- 9

    Cleveland Browns -- 6.5

    Dallas Cowboys -- 7.5

    Denver Broncos -- 11.5

    Detroit Lions -- 8.5

    Green Bay Packers -- 10.5

    Houston Texans - 7.5

    Indianapolis Colts -- 9.5

    Jacksonville Jaguars -- 5

    Kansas City Chiefs -- 8

    Miami Dolphins -- 7.5

    Minnesota Vikings -- 6

    New England Patriots -- 11

    New Orleans Saints -- 10

    New York Giants -- 8

    New York Jets -- 7

    Oakland Raiders -- 5 (take the under)

    Philadelphia Eagles -- 9

    Pittsburgh Steelers -- 8.5

    San Diego Chargers -- 8

    San Francisco 49ers -- 10.5

    Seattle Seahawks -- 11

    St. Louis Rams -- 7.5

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers -- 7

    Tennessee Titans -- 7

    Washington Redskins -- 7.5
