NFL betting: Monday Night Football on over trend
The 'over' has been a hot trend through the first five weeks of Monday Night Football.
After the first six games on Monday night through the opening five weeks of the regular season (Week 1 had a MNF double header), the over has posted a record of 5-1.
The only matchup not to soar over the total was the Week 2 meeting between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cincinnati Bengals. The Bengals won 20-10 with the total set at 40.
Granted, we've seen some of the most potent offenses in the league on Monday night to start the season. The Denver Broncos, Philadelphia Eagles, San Diego Chargers and New Orleans Saints have all played on Monday night thus far.
Most recently, the New York Jets defeated the Atlanta Falcons 30-28 in Week 5's Monday Night Football tilt to finish over the total of 45.
Week 6 brings us the Indianapolis Colts (2-3 O/U) at San Diego Chargers (3-2 O/U). The total is currently 50.
