The UNDER Loves NFL Prime TimeBy David A.
The UNDER has cashed heavily during nationally televised NFL games through three weeks of the NFL season. After 10 games played in “NFL prime time” the UNDER has cashed in eight and has done the same in halftime totals.
Since 2000, the start of this season has the second best record for UNDER based upon percentage, for prime time games for the first three weeks. NLF prime time games this season have averaged 35.7 total points per game.
Going back to 2000, the best record for the UNDER based on percentages following three weeks of the season was in 2006 when six of the eight games in prime time cashed UNDER and one ended in a PUSH.
