TD Passes Galore in the NFL

The 65 touchdown passes thrown in Week 2 (tied NFL record) as well as Patrick Mahomes's torrid start (on pace for 80 touchdowns) prompted BetDSI Sportsbook to put up props on the pass-happy league the NFL has become.



Total touchdown passes in Week 3 of 2018 reg. season

Over 60.5 (+110)
Under 60.5 (-140)

Total touchdown passes by Patrick Mahomes during 2018 reg. season

Over 35.5 (-115)
Under 35.5 (-115)

Will Patrick Mahomes break single-season TD passes record of 55?

Yes +340
No -535

There are four totals in the 50s for Week 3 at BetDSI. Since 2003, only 8 percent of games have featured a total of 50 or higher. Through two weeks this season, the average is in line with that (9 percent), however, for Week 3, 25 percent of games have a total of 50 or higher.

Saints at Falcons (53)
49ers at Chiefs (56.5)
Patriots at Lions (52.5)
Steelers at Bucs (54)

Since 2003, there have only been 22 games with a total of 56.5 or higher. Totals of 57.5 or higher are a perfect 9-0 towards the over.

-OnTracks is a solution for all outdoor athletes (runners, mountain bikers, walkers, hikers, etc.), but it can also be used every day by both motorized and non-motorized two-wheelers around town.

Julien Absalon, two-time Olympic champion and five-time cross-country mountain bike champion, one of France's finest sporting achievements, discovered the onTracks GuideWatches  during a meeting with Philippe Leca, CEO. Julien immediately identified the advantages and the contribution that onTracks could offer to the various mountain bike or even city bike practitioners.
