PICK SIXTY SPORTS WEEKLY TIP:
Last week we looked at Seattle’s tendency to start the season with low scoring games away from home. This week we can scroll to the other end of the September scoring chart to see a Detroit Lions team who ranks in the top 5 for both Over/Under percentage and scoring margin “Over” the total the past 10 years.
Detroit’s (11-6-1 O/U) vast majority of overs were losses but since Jim Schwartz took over in 2009, the Lions have learned how to score. When it’s a non-divisional opponent in the first three months of the season Detroit’s record soars to 22-5-1 O/U (82-percent) and this code shows their record away from home in September through November:
That’s 10 overs, 1 under and a push with games going over the mark by an average of more than eight points per game. The line for Detroit at Arizona is 47.5 and we like this game to go over the number.
