One of the best pro handicappers Matt Rivers says go with the over in the Patriots-Saints game. SportsBook has the total at 56.5.
Let me preface this by saying that I am not a totals player because more times than not over-unders are crapshoots that can truly go either way. But tonight I do see some value in the over and will make a small play on said high.
The total is certainly extremely high and pretty much as hefty as you will ever see in an NFL game. It is asking a ton to get over this hurdle but in my professional opinion 40-37 is a lot more likely than 20-17 which leads to a far greater upside on that over.
Could the defenses rise up a bit and this game stay under the number? Sure it could as this is far from the lock of my life but we could also see 24-21 with these two offenses and one of those hindsight situations where this was never really in doubt.
You know that Drew Brees and the high flying Saints will put up points with Colston and Bush and Thomas and
Call me a square for sounding like every Joe Schmo that would call for this thing to go over. But at times those people are even right and I see this as being one of those times.
If this game is played 100 times I see it going over a lot more than 50 and that is the bottom line creating the value.
Rivers says bet the ESPN Monday Night Football Game over the total.
