PICK SIXTY SPORTS WEEKLY TIP:
Up until Week 9 it had been a relatively slow season for overtime games in the NFL with just four games needing a fifth ‘quarter’ to decide the outcome. Last week, however, fans in three stadiums around the league were treated to some bonus football and the home town crowds in Miami, Washington and Seattle all went home happy.
By this point last year there was 10 games decided in OT and the Week 1-9 average since 1995 is 8.1 games. Aside from live wagering, overtime games do little for bettors at the current time but they can be a nice starting point when handicapping the next week’s card. At Pick Sixty we track dozens of post-OT scenarios and here is one profile that has helped cash 16 winners since 2004 including the Thursday nighter in Minnesota.
We’re looking for road faves off an OT game against teams who have hit a losing streak and the recent record is 16 overs and 15 unders (76-percent). It applies to Seattle (-5) in Atlanta (2 L), Cinci (-1.5) at Baltimore (3 L) and Miami (-2.5) at Tampa Bay (8 L). The road fave is averaging 27.4 points per game in this situation but they also allow 23.5 points, perhaps a product of their worn out defense working hard through those extra minutes the previous week.
