Best Over and Under Picks for 2016 NFL Week 1

Posted by Eric Williams on June 29, 2016 in

If you’re like me and you love the simplicity of making Over/Under NFL betting games that have a high probability of being right, then you’re going to enjoy the handful of Over/Under picks that you’re about to get!

Here are our Best Over and Under Picks for NFL Week 1

Sunday, Sept. 11

San Diego Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs (43.5)

The Under has been the winning pick in each of the last four meetings between the Chiefs and San Diego Chargers – and ironically, that’s one of the reasons I’m picking the Over in this Week 1 opener. These two teams combined to average 45.3 points per game last season and I believe the Under streak ends in 2016.

The Pick: Over 43.5 Total Points

Minnesota Vikings (42.5) at Tennessee Titans

I’m going with the Over in this contest as Tennessee scored (18.7 ppg) and gave up (26.4 ppg) a combined 45.1 points per game in 2015. How about, Vikings 28 Titans 17?

The Pick: Over 42.5 Total Points

New England Patriots at Arizona Cardinals (51)

The Patriots and Cardinals both gave up less than 20 points per game in 2015. Keep it simple and play the Under, duh!

The Pick: Under 51 Total Points

Cincinnati Bengals (43.5) at New York Jets

Sure, the Jets have issues at quarterback with Ryan Fitzpatrick still unsigned, but head coach Todd Bowles is a defensive genius and the Bengals ranked second in points allowed (17.4 ppg) last season.

The Pick: Bengals 24 Jets 14

Buffalo Bills at Baltimore Ravens (43.5)

The Ravens gave up an uncharacteristic 25.4 pints per game in 2015 (24th) while the Bills allowed 22.4 per game (15th). More importantly, Joe Flacco and counterpart Tyrod Taylor know how to find the end zone.

The Pick: Over 43.5 Total Points

Detroit Lions at Indianapolis Colts (49.5)

The Indiannapolis Colts scored and gave up a combined 46.3 points per game a year ago while Detroit’s combined total was 47.4 points per contest. The total for this contest is a tad too high. Play the Under

The Pick: Colts 27 Lions 21

New York Giants at Dallas Cowboys (49.5)

The Over has been the winning NFL betting pick in seven straight matchups between these longtime NFC East rivals when they meet in the Lone Star State and will play over the total again in this Week 1 opener.

The Pick: Dallas 28 New York 24
