First among the winners have been home underdogs, which are currently 6-3 against the Las Vegas betting line. This past weekend saw three of four home underdogs beat the pointspread, the lone loser coming in the Denver at New York Giants game in which Denver was a -3.5 road favorite and won 41-23.
The next trend states that any underdog getting six points or more has been a winning wager in seven of ten games. Finally, the latter trend focuses on games in which the listed total is 46 or more, and states that the home team has won for bettors on 10 of 13 occasions.
This week’s NFL schedule has three games with home underdogs, though none of the pointspreads are all less than a field goal: Green Bay (-1) at Cincinnati, Houston (-2) at Baltimore and Chicago (-2) at Pittsburgh.
With regard to underdogs of more than six points, the Week 3 schedule has five games fitting those parameters, including three double-digit underdogs. The most notable of these large underdogs is the Jacksonville Jaguars, who are getting 19.5 points in a road game against the Seattle Seahawks.
The final group of seven games that have a betting total of 46 or more are topped by Thursday night’s Kansas City at Philadelphia game, which is currently at 50.5.
