Maybe you’ve already got your picks in for the opening week of the 2021 NFL regular season, but by focusing only on point spreads, moneylines or fantasy, you’re robbing yourself of potential opportunities to make money on over/unders.
Here are several totals for this week that are worthy of your attention.
Week 10 NFL OVER UNDER Picks
Denver Broncos at Tennessee Titans (36.5): OVER
I understand both offenses have stunk and both defenses are strong, but this is pushing it way too low considering that we’re talking about a game featuring Russell Wilson and Derrick Henry.
New Orleans Saints at Pittsburgh Steelers (40): UNDER
I know this is a low total but these teams scored a combined 26 points last week and the defenses are both strong despite recent fluctuations in points allowed. Pittsburgh has averaged a horrendous 11.5 points per game the last four weeks.
Dallas Cowboys at Green Bay Packers (43): OVER
I know the Green Bay offense is a mess, but it’s not as though the defense has consistently lit it up. Meanwhile, the Cowboys offense is on fire and they’re coming off an outing that contained 78 total points. This number is too low.

2021 RECORD: 19-21
Atlanta Falcons at Dallas Cowboys: 54.5 at FanDuel
The Falcons aren’t good, but I think folks might be underestimating an offense that has scored 27-plus points in four of their last five games. There’s no reason that unit can’t put up a similar number as a significant underdog against a Dallas defense that struggled last week.
But the icing on the cake for the over here is that Dak Prescott and the Cowboys offense should be fired up to bounce back against a bad D after stumbling last week against the Denver Broncos.
Kansas City Chiefs at Las Vegas Raiders: 51.5 at Draft Kings
I’m not sure why anybody would expect this to come close to shootout status. The Chiefs have averaged a comical 12.0 points per game the last three weeks, and their defense is performing a lot better as of late as well. The Raiders offense is also coming back to earth following some brutal off-field blows, so I really wouldn’t be surprised to see a result along the lines of 20-17 here.
New Orleans Saints at Tennessee Titans: 44.5 at FanDuel
I don’t trust the Titans offense sans Derrick Henry. The defense helped that unit significantly Sunday night against the Los Angeles Rams, but that might not be sustainable and the Saints have the league’s fifth-ranked scoring D. Tennessee’s defense does, however, have enough talent to keep Trevor Siemian in check. This one might not hit the 40 mark.
Minnesota Vikings at Los Angeles Chargers: 52 at Draft Kings
Fifty-two? The Vikings offense is erratic, but only two Chargers games this season have contained 52 or more points. The Vikes have been held to fewer than 20 points in three of their last five games. They might be in that range here, but I’m expecting a result along the lines of 27-20.
