Just finished capping this week's games and something really jumped at me, mainly because there is so much more relevant information with all 16 games in DIV. I did some compiling and came up with the following:
Matchup, Under/Over, Avg Pts, TT for week 17, difference
IND/JAC 5-0 34 45.5 11.5
NYJ/MIA 5-1 32 41 9
WAS/NYG 6-1 38 45.5 7.5
STL/SEA 6-1 30 43 13
TB/NO 9-1 42 47 5
CLE/PIT 4-1 29 44 15
GB/CHI 9-1 37 53.5 16.5
As you can see the numbers appear to be massively inflated due to this year's totals. I would expect a few of these to buck the trend but we have 7 matchups with STRONG under plays. I'm going to be playing them all and expect most of them to turn out well with hopefully only a bad beat or two.
Another point to this is in a few games, teams will be wanting to run the ball to finish the game more quickly without injury.
A negative would be that DIV games in W17 last year went 8-8 O/U from my records.
Merry Christmas indeed.
