The website has found that road favorites that have won all four previous contests entering Week 5 of a season since 2005 have one common denominator. Research has shown that each of the undefeated teams can be expected to be involved in a defensive battle that will result in the game going below the listed total.
Those three games will have the Seattle Seahawks traveling as a 2.5 road favorite to face the Indianapolis Colts, with a total of 43; the Kansas City Chiefs, a three-point favorite on the road against the Tennessee Titans, and a total of 39.5; and the Denver Broncos, a seven-point road favorite against the Dallas Cowboys in a game with the total currently at 55.5.
During the previous eight seasons, this record has attained a winning percentage of 80 percent, with eight victories in 10 tries. The only two times it has failed to win for bettors during this time has been in 2007 for a Cowboys-Buffalo Bills game that ended up 25-24, surpassing the total of 44, and two years later, for a Minnesota Vikings at St. Louis Rams matchup in which the 39-8 final score went past the 41 total.
