  • There are 11 games on Thursday's NFL preseason Week 1 slate and many feature low over/unders.
  • Using Bet Labs, we analyze how bettors should approach the these games with low totals.

Low-total (35 or fewer points) preseason games are rare. In the Bet Labs database less than 25% of exhibition games feature such a total. Casual bettors love wagering on the over, except in these games.

Often matchups featuring a small over/under involve poor offenses, great defenses or both.

There have been 238 preseason games with a total of 35 or fewer points since 2004. In only 109 (45.8%) games were a majority of tickets on the over.
