Maybe you’ve already got your picks in for Week 2 of the 2020 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 a handful of totals for Sunday and Monday at Sugarhouse Sportsbook that are worthy of your attention.
Last week’s record: 3-1
Carolina Panthers at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (47.5)
In every respect, Tom Brady has been getting too much of the benefit of the doubt this week. The numbers indicate he’s been toast for about 11 months and neither of his top two receivers is 100 percent as a new-look offense adjusts on the fly. Carolina’s defense might present less of a challenge than they faced from the New Orleans Saints, but don’t look for Tampa to push into the 30s Sunday.
The Panthers also may have warped the public’s view of their offensive prowess in Week 1. Yes, they scored 34 against a mediocre Las Vegas Raiders defense, but Tampa Bay’s underrated defense is familiar with Teddy Bridgewater and Christian McCaffrey. A unit that actually contained Drew Brees and Alvin Kamara last week held McCaffrey to just 68 yards on 38 carries in two meetings last year. This one might only barely reach the 40s.
