It's interesting to note that the total on the Milwaukee Brewers vs. Washington Nationals game has moved from 9.5 to 10.5, though most books were settled in at 10 and some hadn't even moved the number.

PITCHING MATCHUP: Brewers RH Jordan Lyles (7-8, 4.71 ERA) vs. Nationals RH Anibal Sanchez (7-6, 3.75)

Lyles has been solid in his three starts since coming over in a trade from Pittsburgh, going 2-1 while allowing five runs (three earned) on eight hits over 17 innings combined. The 28-year-old has struck out 14 and walked eight in his three outings with the Brewers, losing last time out despite tossing seven innings of one-run ball. Turner is 4-for-7 with a homer versus Lyles, who is 0-2 with a 5.55 ERA in 10 career appearances (two starts) against Washington.

Sanchez is unbeaten in his last 14 trips to the mound, winning seven of those outings, after starting the season 0-6 with a 5.27 ERA in the first eight games. The 35-year-old Venezuela native gave up one earned run over six frames to win at San Francisco on Aug. 6 before holding the New York Mets to three tallies across five innings of a no-decision Aug. 11. Braun is 4-for-9 with a homer against Sanchez, who beat Milwaukee last year while giving up a run over 6 2/3 frames.

The idea that this one is trending towards 10.5 with two starters pitching particularly well is enough for one to scratch their head.

It might make some degree of sense if we were to believe one or both of these starters is due for a bad outing.  After all, only one of the last ten meetings has gone OVER 10 runs, and yesterday's game only resulted in three. 

Even though we'd exercise caution betting the UNDER here, recent trends discourage us from taking the OVER.  Washington, for example, has only permitted more than four runs to be scored in three of their last ten overall.

Hot Betting Trends: Dolphins vs. Cowboys Week 3

Winning Margin (4-Way): Dallas Cowboys by 14+ Points (-270) – The Dolphins look like one of the worst NFL teams in recent memory through Week 2, and they have been absolutely abysmal this year in almost every phase of the game, averaging just 5.0 PPG on offense and allowing 51.0 PPG on the defensive end. The Cowboys are averaging 33.0 PPG (No. 5 in the NFL), and unless Miami miraculously turns things around before Sunday, the Dolphins could be in for a third consecutive blowout loss.The line on the Dolphins-Cowboys game has gone from Dallas -21 to -22.5 and could climb higher.  Remarkably a quarter of the moneyline action is on Miami, though only 18% of the spread action is on the Dolphins.

NFL Betting – Week 3 Wise Guy Picks

I said last week that it’s common for the betting public to overreact early in the season. That was directed at teams that didn’t play well and still had time to regroup. After the flurry of early-season injuries to quarterbacks, we can officially start to overreact. The big concern this week is for the Pittsburgh Steelers and New Orleans after they each lost their starter. It might be time to fade those teams, at least for this week until we find out how they respond with a new signal-caller.
