Its the second half of the NFL season and there are great games to bet on. We have got a treble and its time for the points to hit the roof!

Its week ten and the NFL is starting to hot up as we approach the playoffs. A lot of teams are jostling for position and every game becomes important. Normally when this happens you find that offences start to falter and defenses start to make the difference. However, this year looks a little different as the points are still being scored. This might be down to the lack of crowds but this Sunday is time for the points to hit the roof!

Denver Broncos vs Las Vegas Raiders

Broncos

The Denver Broncos have had a tough season this year and injuries have hurt them badly. They are currently sitting at 3-5 but they seem to struggle to get going in games. They give away to many points and expect to some how come back against some decent teams. They managed to do it against the Chargers but couldn’t do it against the Falcons. Drew Lock has missed a few games due to injury but he has still only managed six touchdowns. Along with that he has also thrown six interceptions. He is very inconsistent most of the time and you just don’t know which Lock will turn up.

Denver has two solid running backs but both have missed time through injury. Melvin Gordon has scored five touchdowns as the main guy but Phillip Lindsay has also contributed. Along with the ok running backs, the Broncos have struggled at wide receiver with the loss of star asset Courtland Sutton. With Sutton gone, Jerry Jeudy has had to step up and has 484 yards and two touchdowns. Tim Patrick has also stepped up with 383 yards and three touchdowns. Noah Fant has been a good target for Lock picking up 349 yards and two touchdowns.

Raiders

The Las Vegas Raiders are currently sitting at 5-3 and are looking like a playoff team. They have showed they can win in tight, low scoring games and big scoring shootouts. Not only that they can beat some of the best teams on their day and that is mainly due to Derek Carr. He has thrown just over 2,000 yards and 16 touchdowns, but most importantly only two interceptions.

Josh Jacobs is their main offensive weapon and has rushed for 588 yards and six touchdowns. Along with him, they have a very solid tight end option in Darren Waller. He has received 394 yards and four touchdowns in the eight games played. The Raiders have some receiving options in Henry Ruggs, Nelson Agholor and Hunter Renfrow, but none of them are great. Defensively the Raiders are not the best, but they can stop the run, most noticeably against the Browns. This game looks like it will be high scoring, as the Raiders can score points on most teams but can give points up easily.

The Bet : Over 50.5 total points in the game at 10/11

 

LA Chargers vs Miami Dolphins

Chargers

The LA Chargers have been a bit unlucky this year as they sit at 2-6 for the season. However, in seven of their eight games the final total has been within one score. One promising part for the Chargers is the emergence of Justin Herbert in his rookie year. He has passed for 2,146 yards and 17 touchdowns which is impressive for a rookie. Along with Herbert, the Chargers have some good running backs in Justin Jackson and Joshua Kelley. Austin Ekeler is still out with injury and this is why Jackson and Kelly have had to step up.

The Chargers have got a good set of receivers in Keenan Allen, Mike Williams and Jalen Guyton. All three have been effective with Justin Herbert and with time, these losses will become wins. Tight end Hunter Henry is a solid option for the Chargers, who is reliable and always available for moving the chains. Defensively, the Chargers just haven’t been good enough and give up far to many points. In the last five games, they have given up at least 29 points per game and this needs to change in order to put more wins in the schedule.

Dolphins

The Miami Dolphins are looking decent at the moment and are sitting at 5-3 for the season. They are on a run at the moment having won their last four games, including three games against the NFC West. They were sitting at 3-3, when they decided to bring in Tua Tagovailoa. He has looked a little shaky in his first game, but he looked very good against the Cardinals on Sunday.

The Dolphins have got some solid receiving options for Tua to thrown to. He has DeVante Parker and Preston Williams as his two main receivers. Parker has scored three touchdowns and Williams four touchdowns so far this season. Another great option, is tight end Mike Gesicki who is a good redzone target and has managed to get two touchdowns. However, the main positive to the Dolphins is their defense, who have looked very good the last few weeks. Both teams are capable of getting a decent amount of points on the board and the overs look the way to go.

The Bet : Over 48.5 total points in the game at 10/11

 

San Francisco 49ers vs New Orleans Saints

49ers

The San Francisco 49ers have had an injury hit season and currently sit at 4-5 on the season. Unlike most teams who suffer from injury, the 49ers have been hit unbelievably hard. They lost to the Packers on TNF last week but had very few regular starters playing and it showed. Nick Mullens is starting at QB and has had a mixed season with five touchdowns and four interceptions.

The 49ers should have Kendrick Bourne and Brandon Aiyuk back after being out with Covid. Richie James also looked good against the Packers and should continue to play well. At running back, the 49ers have Jerick McKinnon and Jamycal Hasty who can be useful. At tight end, George Kittle is out now, so Jordan Reed and Ross Dwelley are taking over. Defensively, the 49ers have been ripped apart by injuries as well, and we will see the Saints get plenty of points.

Saints

The New Orleans Saints are quietly going about their business and are now at 6-2 this season. They managed to decimate the Tampa Bay Bucs on Sunday night football last week and are just getting better. Drew Brees has not been his best this year, but he has still thrown 17 touchdowns and only three interceptions. Not only is Brees doing ok, he has got his main weapon in Michael Thomas back after injury. Thomas was the number one wide receiver last year and he has been sorely missed.

Not only do they have Michael Thomas, but also the have some other solid receiving options in Emmanuel Sanders and Marquez Callaway. Both have stepped up in Thomas’s absence and can continue to do well this year. The Saints have one of the best running backs in the game with Alvin Kamara. He has amassed over 1,000 all purpose yards and eight touchdowns so far this year. The Saints have scored over 26 points in all but one game so far this year and another high scoring game is coming.

The Bet : Over 49.0 total points in the game at 10/11

If you put all three bets together then you will get around 6/1 for the treble!
