Every week when I’m handicapping games, odd/even totals catch my eye. It’s pretty much impossible to find an edge for this type of bet because you damn near have to predict the winning score.
But if you are a trends person, I have a few trends for you that may help you cash some odd/even total bets tickets.
Bengals (-1.5) vs. Raiders – O/U 50.5
Cincinnati has played in seven games where the total has ended in an odd number. While, Las Vegas has played in three straight games where the total was an odd number. Both teams are a combined 13-5 to odd totals, so that’s good news for today’s 4:05 (ET) matchup.
Cowboys vs. Chiefs (-2.5) – O/U 55.5
Dallas has played in just one game this season where the final score ended in an odd number and that was in Week 2 against the Chargers. Kansas City, however, has played in two games our of its last three that ended in an odd number but I’ll take my chances here and roll with an even total finish in this week’s Game of the Week.
Cardinals vs. Seahawks (-3) – O/U 45.5
These two teams have combined to hit an odd total 13 times this season. Arizona has six games that have finished in an odd number and Seattle is 7-2 to odd number totals. I think this game is going to feature more touchdowns than field goals and I’m hoping for a 28-21 finish. Hell, I’ll even take a 21-14 finish.
