[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.]
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, despite having one of the most dysfunctional and peculiar quarterback situations, have an offense that continues to surprise. The Bucs are putting up points in bunches, at least more points than Vegas expects them to. Ryan Fitzpatrick has thrown three touchdowns in all but one of his starts and in that one start, he was pulled at halftime. The only game they haven't hit the over was a Week 7 contest that Jameis Winston started.

Best record when betting the under through Week 9:
Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons are right on their heels though. Ryan has almost identical numbers to his MVP season, but the Falcons defense is so injury-riddled that they aren't able to win games, even with the high-powered offense. Thus, all the overs.
The teams that are best at hitting the under are comprised of some of the league's worst offenses. Although the Houston Texans have gone on a nice streak of wins, they clearly haven't been scoring an overwhelming amount of points in those wins. The Bills might be the worst offense in NFL history, so their appearance on this list is no surprise.
The under is always a fun way to bet on bad teams and root for them to continue being bad, so I guess this is still a positive that could come out of the Bills' atrocious season.
