Dan Snyder has been officially removed from the front office of the Washington Commanders. There is a rumor that they may completely rebrand the team and come up with another name, again.
9:09 NFL Highest Scoring Team
The Cardinals and Colts kick things off with the highest odds to be the highest scoring team, both at 200-1. Arizona brings minimal hope as they will be quite limited, and the Colts have some promise due to their weak division but still the situation looks bleak.
Something to consider about this bet is that whoever has the most points is likely to have the MVP. You can probably get better odds on betting the MVP than the team to have the most points, such as with the Bengals and Joe Burrow.
One team to watch for with high odds is the Titans at 110-1. They still have Derrick Henry and have a solid receiving core with Hopkins and CHIG. Overall, their team is solid and at this price it is worth it to take a shot as they have a chance to replicate their 2020 season. At 80-1, the Rams aren’t a bad pick due the genius of McVay and their at times porous defense. If you for some reason believe in Derek Carr, the Saints can be a good play as they have a fairly weak schedule.
Detroit is a viable candidate for the highest scoring team as they were 5th last year and their offense took a step forward while their defense is suspect. As chalky as it is, the Chiefs at 5-1 is still a good price to get in on.
35:09 NFL Lowest Scoring Team
For high power teams like the Chiefs, Bengals, and Eagles, the only realistic situation is if their quarterback goes down and they don’t have a good backup, unfortunately. For how unlikely this is, its not worth it to bet on. Seattle though, struggled to score points later on in the year last season and could potentially repeat this last year. At 22-1, the Raiders have enough variables to slip in points if the situation blows up.
The chalk in this bet is not as enticing as there is a likelihood for so many teams that they have issues scoring and they are all at similar prices.
46:40 NFL Least Points Allowed
Houston is an interesting take for least points allowed as Demeco Ryans can really get this defense rocking which has strong young talent. In addition, when teams aren’t great offensively, their opponents will have less reason to score a hefty number of points. The Packers should have a strong defense combined with an offense that will try to use up the clock often. Denver was in an awful situation in terms of coaching, if this can improve their defense can show out and bring them closer to having an already low average points let up per game.
