Point Totals Worth Taking a Look At for Week 6

October 15, 2017
The defenses will have an impact in Lions-Saints game

NFL bettors love to bet on point totals. The over/under has become a very popular bet for most bettors.

Here is a pair of NFL Week 6 game point totals worth looking at prior to making a decision as to what point totals you choose for Sunday’s games.

The Detroit Lions visit the New Orleans Saints on Sunday with the point total between 49 and 50 depending upon the sportsbooks you pick.

Quarterbacks Matthew Stafford for the Lions and Drew Brees for the Saints have prolific career passing numbers, which might mean this game could be a shootout in the Bayou.

However, the defenses for both teams have played much better this season, which could mean the two quarterbacks may have problems finding the end zone during this NFC clash.

The UNDER has cashed in 12 of the past 15 road conference games for Detroit the last three seasons and the UNDER has cashed in 9 of the past 10 games on the road coming off a home game for Detroit.

The UNDER looks good for this game at 50.

Two of the biggest surprises thus far after six weeks of the regular season are the Los Angeles Rams and the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Offensively the Rams are playing well averaging 30.5 points per game. The Rams managed just 10 points against Seattle last week but ended the game with 375 yards of offense, however five turnovers were their demise.

The Jaguars are much improved averaging nearly 28 points per game. The OVER has cashed in each of the past 6 games Jacksonville has played following an UNDER cashing in the prior game, and the OVER has cashed in 14 of the past 19 games for the Jags when the line was between +3 and -3 dating back to 2015. The line is currently Jaguars -2.5.

The OVER looks good for this game at 43.

Of course, there are many other variables that must be taken into consideration before making a choice on the over/under including the weather, injuries, head to head matchups and more.
