Vegas Says Enough Is Enough, Posts HUGE Point Totals To Counter The NFL Scoring Surge

Tom Brady

The early lines for next week’s NFL games are out.

And wow, some of these point totals are enormous.

Of the nine games on the board, there are three lines of 50 or more points, and only one of 40 or less.

For comparison, in week one, NONE of the 16 games were posted over 50 points, and six games were under 40 points.

Basically, the betting public has been raking it in on over bets all season long, and now Vegas has had enough.

It’s a crisis for bettors.

On the one hand you could read this as an overreaction by Vegas start grabbing the under on all these monster lines.

But if the NFL scoring bonanza is the “new normal” and not just a coincidence, you’re going to have to get used to needing 50 points or more to cash your bets.
