Revamped Website with Google DFP: Page Views in Analytics VERY HIGH

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭
# 1
Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I've just launched my new website (new look with DFP but website has been in existence for a while). Racingdudes.com is the website.

 
Everything seems to be working great on all fronts except since launching my page views in Google Analytics have blown up. I do now use infinite scroll which knew that would increase some but I had a 200% increase overnight! I have done some testing using the live Analytics and it seems somehow single page views are getting counted more than once. Please help. 
 
Here is the DFP coding I have in my <head>:
 
<script type='text/javascript'>
var googletag = googletag || {};
googletag.cmd = googletag.cmd || [];
(function() {
var gads = document.createElement('script');
gads.async = true;
gads.type = 'text/javascript';
var useSSL = 'https:' == document.location.protocol;
gads.src=(useSSL ? 'https:' : 'http:') +
'//www.googletagservices.com/tag/js/gpt.js';
var node = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0];
node.parentNode.insertBefore(gads, node);
})();
</script>

<script type='text/javascript'>
googletag.cmd.push(function() {

I asked this same question in the DFP help and they assured me DFP would not cause this.
 
For Analytics I'm using a plugin called All in One SEO and simply plugged in my Google Analytics ID. What am I doing wrong? Do I still need to include Google Analytics or does the DFP code work alone? 
 
It's worth noting that my sessions and users stayed about the same. Just the pages/session is what has blown up. Thanks!
