I am back with two plays from BetOnline sportsbook that look to be great values coming into the Sunday afternoon games. Check out these NFL Odds before hitting the virtual window. 

 

Season NFL Team Props Record: 18-9

Titans vs. Dolphins O/U 3.5 Field Goals

I told myself I wasn’t going to go to a field goal prop for the Sunday slate, but like a former girlfriend you can’t seem to get over, I’m back again to try another time for the payoff.

What attracted me to this particular beauty is two-fold. The first one being that these two teams have combined through the first four weeks to allow 27 field goal attempts to their opponents. Their field goal attempts allowed through four weeks rank first and tied for third so far this year and while it’s a credit to their defenses, there two offenses are going to be settling for three points often in this one.

The second thing that attracted me to this play on BetOnline is the NFL Odds they are offering for the over. A four field goal game would net you a +140 win, which is just too much giving by the book.

Ryan Succop hasn’t done much but did have his first two field goal game last week against the Texans. Andrew Franks for the Fins hasn’t kicked a ton of field goals either this season. However, the sportsbooks are overlooking the fact that these defenses hold their opponents for field goals a lot, so both should be busy on Sunday.

NFL Pick: OVER 3.5 (+140) at BetOnline

 

Must Read: Best Player Prop Value In Week 5 Philadelphia Eagles O/U 24.5 points

I understand the Carson Wentz train left the station a long time ago, but I am requesting a first class ticket on its’ next stop. Simply put, the Browns and Rams seem to be insane for passing on this guy (hindsight is always 20-20) and now he gets to face the banged up Lions defense after an extra week to prepare on his bye.

Even though the Eagles are on the road, the injuries to the likes of Ezekiel Ansah and DeAndre Levy, plus the loss of a solid lineman in Wallace Gilberry have created some big holes for this Lions defense. Their secondary is already not very good, so the loss of two of their best pass rushers is going to give Wentz all the time he needs.

Coming off the bye week, I expect Philadelphia to be sharp on offense and once again solid on defense. The Lions are also dealing with injuries to two of their best pass catchers in Eric Ebron and Marvin Jones. That may give the Eagles even more chances is the Lions’ offense stalls against this good Philly defense.

NFL Pick: OVER 24.5 (-115)
