Here’s a selection for each of the 14 totals for Week 10 around the NFL. The oddsmakers have done a remarkable job to this point of the season, with UNDER’s holding the slimmest of leads at 67-66.
Please note all the NFL odds for each contest are listed after the home team and are from GTBets.
Panthers at Steelers (o/v 49)
Let’s make a call for a higher score with Carolina 17-4 OVER against a team that scores 27 or more points a contest. Pittsburgh is also 28-12 OVER after permitting 75 or fewer rushing yards in consecutive games.
Bills at Jets (o/v 37)
In Buffalo’s last six games they have averaged an impossible to believe by any football standard 7.6 PPG. Since scoring 42 points against Indianapolis, the Jets have scored 33 total points over their next three outings. Yea, the UNDER is spot on.
Falcons at Browns (o/v 51)
Matt Ryan is smoldering right now and should be able to put up points on Cleveland’s defense. Lose the outlier game in which Baltimore somehow managed to score only nine points and in the Browns other five most recent contests, they have ‘held’ opponents to “only’ 35.8 PPG. The Dirty Birds are 16-5 OVER when the total is 49 or higher.
Saints at Bengals (o/v 54 – Highest of the week)
Simple logic applied. The average total score of a New Orleans Saints game is 61.2. The average score of a Cincinnati Bengals contest is 57.2. There is no college degree needed to figure out how this total will work out.
Redskins at Buccaneers (o/v 51.5)
Even if Washington has trouble scoring like last week against Atlanta, if Ryan “FitzMagic” Fitzpatrick has his typical game, that means at least three touchdown passes for Tampa Bay and his two interceptions and lost fumble. That should help the Redskins tally at least 17 points without putting in much effort.
