2 units on Game Total UNDER 42 -110 (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: WIN
As pre-season games go, there is always value when you look at the total in this range, as almost all games go off in the 30s. Sometimes the perceptions created by a high scoring game such as the Saints 31-27 to the Texans last week, and the Bengals allowing 27 against the lowly Lions, make the odds-makers add a few points the following week. The fact is only 11 of 31 games played this pre-season through week two have topped the 42 point mark (35.4%). We will ride the value in this one and play this one to go UNDER the total.
