Our Selection : It’s Really really tough to pick a side here. Both teams have a lot of talent on the offensive side of the ball and can sure put up a ton of points in a hurry. We like a small play on the total in this game. The over/under total line opened at 73 but one sided action has pushed the number down to 70 at most online sportsbooks. We are going to make our play against where the action is and play the Over. Take Over 70 points at 5Dimes and get reduced juice on every play.
