I get why the total is where it is, but to be honest, I think it’s still a bit too high. The side is a wash to me because it’s easy to make a case either way here, but I honestly think this is a first to 65 wins kind of game if we even get that high with how bad the offenses have been for both teams at times this season. Either way I think we’re prepping ourselves for a low-scoring battle here, so give me the under.
