[This list will be updated each week of the NFL season, keeping track of the best and worst teams to bet on when it comes to the over/under.]


With all of these new rule changes favoring offenses, betting the over has had some very positive returns so far this season.


With that in mind, let's take a look at the best teams hitting the over and those who have gone under more often through eight weeks of the NFL season.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and their horrific defense will be mainstays on this list, but it does help that the NFL's top passing attack (averaging 332.7 yards per game) will get quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick back in the starting lineup after a few dreadful performances from Jameis Winston.

After the Bucs, there's a five-way tie for the second-best mark on overs -- the Green Bay Packers, Detroit Lions, Los Angeles Chargers, Pittsburgh Steelers, and Atlanta Falcons all reside there.

On the flip side of things, the Buffalo Bills are unsurprisingly leading the list of teams hitting the under in 75 percent of their games. After all, the Bills rank dead-last in offensive Football Outsiders' Defense-adjusted Value Over Average (DVOA) while ranking fourth-best in defensive DVOA.

After the Bills, there is a four-way tie at 2-5 on the over, which includes the Tennessee Titans, Dallas Cowboys, Washington Redskins and Seattle Seahawks. All four of these teams prioritize running the ball over passing and have solid defensive units. No surprise there at all.

Just wait until Monday night when the Cowboys take on the Titans at Jerry's World. I smell another under there.
