Total of the Week

We were unable to fit our Total of the Week in the newsletter this week – here is a NFL total selection for Sunday’s schedule:

#253/254 OVER 49.5 Arizona Cardinals at New England Patriots 12:00 PM CT

Surprisingly the ‘under’ is 7-3 in Arizona games this season but three of the past four have hit ‘over’ and the past four games have averaged nearly 62 points per game despite facing four winning teams in that span. Seattle’s struggling pass defense is included in two of those games but het Cardinals have reached 30 points six times in the past nine games while scoring a minimum of 21 points in every single game this season. New England’s offense has shown some life of late as the offensive line has worked its way to being one of the better AFC units. The Patriots have outrushed foes in three straight games while posting over 400 yards in two of the past three games. It is New England’s decline defensively that has taken the Patriots from a top AFC threat to a non-playoff team more so than the switch from Tom Brady to Cam Newton. New England is allowing 6.4 yards per play this season and 8.4 yards per pass attempt as Arizona seems likely to hit some big plays this week. The Cardinals are allowing 4.6 yards per rush this season as both defenses have vulnerability at the opposing offense’s strength. This total has bounced around a bit but a number right around 50 seems fair for this contest and for a late November game in the Northeast the weather looks exceptional with no wind and a game time temperature in the low 50s.
