Sportsbooks have found the sweet spot on picking totals in the last month, with the OVER having the slightest 30-29 edge. That does not mean there is not opportunity to cash for sage football bettors.
For example, you can stay right here and read over this entire article and find in the last six weeks we are 13-5 for NFL picks on totals. Trust me, bragging is not my deal, being well acquainted with the fickle nature of predicting anything in professional football, still, I have made a nice living betting sports and writing about them for a quite awhile
When looking over the NFL odds for this week for total, here is what I am thinking.
Outside of six quarters of football, the Cincinnati offense has not done much. NFL analysts have regularly vilipend the Bengals offensive line, who is not passing blocking to give Andy Dalton time to throw nor created many running lane for backs. Cincy did score 31 points against Cleveland and being able to do battle with Indianapolis should raise the Bengals scoring average with the Colts conceding a league-worst 31.7 points a contest. With the listed total at 42, all we need from Indy is their season average 17 PPG. For good measure, the Colts are 9-1 OVER as a road underdog the last two seasons, with average total score 54.6.
