One of the more intriguing games from an OVER/UNDER perspective comes Sunday with Tampa Bay at Indianapolis. FanDuel is among several books offering the consensus total of 51.5 on this tilt.

The Bucs appeared to get back on track offensively in their 30-10 MNF win over the Giants. Indy’s offensive prowess was on display yet again in a 41-15 victory at Buffalo. With the best RB in the NFL now in Jonathan Taylor, Indy has gone OVER in four of its last five games. The 51.5 total appears getable for OVER bettors.

Other Week 12 Totals:

Thursday: Bears at Lions (O/U 41.5)

The SuperBook opened this up at 43.5 on Sunday night and UNDER players swiftly bet it down to a consensus 41.5. BetMGM and PointsBet still offered 42 as of Tuesday morning.

Thursday: Raiders at Cowboys (O/U 51)

Ezekiel Elliott, Ceedee Lamb, and Amari Cooper are among the questions marks when it comes to availability on Thursday. That won’t help a Dallas team that’s gone 4-0 to the UNDER in its last four games.

Thursday: Bills at Saints (O/U 46.5)

Remember when Buffalo seemed like the team to beat in the AFC? If you’re thinking UNDER here, Caesars was among the minority of books that still offered 47.

Titans at Patriots (O/U 44.5)

Tennessee’s offense travels well. The Titans are 4-1 to the OVER on the road this year. They put up four TDs in the only game that went UNDER, too, a 28-16 road win over the Rams.

Jets at Texans (O/U 44)

The Jets might seem like a hot mess, but they’ve cashed winning tickets for OVER players in six of their last seven games – including three straight on the road.

Eagles at Giants (O/U 46)

The Giants “exploded” for 10 points in their MNF loss at Tampa Bay. New York is also 4-0-1 to the UNDER in home games this season. Philly might have to cover this number on its own.

Falcons at Jags (O/U 46.5)

This number has dropped from an opener of 48. The Falcons haven’t been able to score a single TD in their last two games. Maybe the bye week helped kick them into gear, but would you bet on that?

Panthers at Dolphins (O/U 42.5)

The UNDER has cashed in five of Miami’s last six games. Since Cam Newton rejoined the fold, Carolina has gone 2-0 to the OVER.

Steelers at Bengals (O/U 45.5)

Beware of recency bias here. Pittsburgh put up 37 points in a road loss at the Chargers. Cincy hung 32 on the Raiders in a road victory. This total seems a tad low as a result.

Chargers at Broncos (O/U 47)

Denver is 4-1 to the UNDER at home this year. The Broncos give up an average of just 17.3 points per game, good for fourth best in the league.

Vikings at 49ers (O/U 48.5)

Minnesota is 4-1 to the OVER on the road this year. The Vikings will carry some momentum after their 34-31 win over Green Bay. But the 49ers held the Rams to just 10 points in their last appearance at home.

Rams at Packers (O/U 47.5)

This game opened at 50 and has been steadily bet down. Maybe it’s because the Rams haven’t looked at all like the Rams in their past two games. Maybe it’s because the Packers have gone UNDER in seven of their last eight games.

Browns at Ravens (O/U 46)

An old friend of mine in Upstate New York vehemently believes in betting only on OVERS. He loathes punters, too. I’ll follow his lead here as the Browns have gone OVER in four of their last five road games.

Monday: Seahawks at Washington Football Team (O/U 46)

Seattle has quietly emerged as the top UNDER team in the NFL. The Seahawks are 8-1-1 to the UNDER with their lone OVER coming in Week 2 at Tennessee. DraftKings was among the books at 46.5 with this total.
