Oddsmakers pushed OVER-UNDER numbers even higher in Week 4 and the points kept a comin’….
Before the Covid-19 required Monday Night double-header, OVERs hit at 8-4-1 clip in Week 4, taking the season-to-date record to 39-21-1 (according to the closing NFL lines at National Football Post).
And Monday Night gets Patrick Mahomes facing the New England Patriots along with the Atlanta vs Green Bay game, which had a total of 56.5 earlier Monday at BetRivers sportsbook. The Green Bay number crept down a bit, with Davante Adams declaring himself out and Allen Lazard heading to the IR.
How high are Week 5 OVER UNDERs?
The numbers are climbing again in Week 5 as the Houston vs Jacksonville game is one of several to open above 50.
Houston vs Jacksonville 54 | Matchup Report
Cincinnati vs Baltimore 52 | Matchup Report
NY Giants vs Dallas 54 | Matchup Report
Minnesota vs Seattle 57.5 | Matchup Report
LA Chargers vs New Orleans 52 | Matchup Report
The explosion off scoring comes even as injuries continue at a terrifying clip. Offenses are damage, but clearly the defenses are suffering as well and not keeping up.
And the Thursday Night Tampa Bay vs Chicago game has plenty of OVER trends, so Week 5 could get off to another screaming start for OVER bettors.
