Compared to last Sunday, Over/Under betting odds were higher following the record high scoring average of 52.8 from NFL Week 7. On Monday Night Football, Texans struggled against Colts and the final counts were in 5 overs and 8 unders.
Let’s have a look at the high scoring theme from first six weeks in order to arrive to a right track in Week 9:
Week’s Over/Under Play: This weekend, we love Chicago and Buffalo to go ‘Over’. For this indoor match-up that is being played in Toronto, Canada, our Sportsbook have the Total currently listed at 41.
Week 2: WR Andre Johnson of Texans had ankle injury on Monday during the match-up with Colts and it is still bothering him.
Week 3: RB Steven Jackson of Rams has strained his groin vs Redskins.
Week 4: QB Michael Vick, RB LeSean McCoy and CB Asante Samuel left the game with injuries.
Week 5: TE Jermichael Finley of Packers was lost for the year, LB Clay Matthews pulled his hamstring and QB Aaron Rodgers suffered a concussion.
Week 6: TE Dallas Clark of Colts had wrist injury, WR Austin Collie – thumb and RB Joseph Addai – shoulder.
Week 7: LB Lance Briggs of Chicago had ankle injury. Briggs had missed practice session.
Look for value this week on Chicago (-2.5), the New York Jets (-4) and Philadelphia (-2.5) to keep the “Non-Con” hot streak alive.
