Sportsbook opens Patriots-Packers with highest ever points total



Week 13 in the NFL features the New England Patriots clashing with the Green Bay Packers in a matchup of the two hottest teams in the league, and one sportsbook has opened the game total at 60. Their highest ever opening points total for an NFL game.

The 60 points is the highest opening total has ever released and they feel this reflects the NFL’s general increasing trend towards passing and scoring.

“Our overall points total markets this year have been higher than ever before,” a spokesperson with told Covers. “But this is the first time we’ve opened a points total in the 60’s.”

And the number may not have been high enough as 86 percent of the initial action is on the over and that has been the trend in games with very high totals.

Per Covers’ Jason Logan, since 2005 there have been six games with totals closing at 57 points or more over the over is 5-1 in the those games. The latest being the Patriots 42-20 win in Indianapolis, where the total closed at 58.
