Betting on the NFL week in and week out is all the time insane, and at this time was no totally different. There have been a ton of backdoor covers at this time, together with the Cincinnati Bengals overlaying in Cleveland on a blocked punt and two-point conversion, and the Payments getting a rubbish time TD in New England after the Pats pulled Tom Brady for Brian Hoyer.
However, these weren’t even the craziest issues that occurred throughout at this time’s video games. With the Pittsburgh Steelers overlaying the unfold in opposition to the New Orleans Saints, highway groups have gone undefeated and coated each unfold this NFL weekend. Highway groups are actually 12-Zero-2 ATS (based mostly on closing numbers) in Week 16 coming into into Sunday Night time Soccer.
I don’t keep in mind the final time each single residence staff didn’t cowl their spreads, so I reached out to a few of my playing colleagues to see in the event that they knew.
John Ewing of The Motion Community, had the next info for me:
- Since 2005, residence groups haven’t didn’t cowl not less than one sport throughout an NFL week.
- Solely 4 earlier weeks had residence groups coated in three or fewer video games.
- Earlier worst information for residence groups: 2-10-1 ATS: Week 7, 2012-13; 2-10 ATS: Week eight, 2007-08; Three-11 ATS: Week 9, 2011-12; and Three-11 ATS: Week 10, 2008-09
So, there you could have it. With just one sport left on the board — the Kansas Metropolis Chiefs at Seattle Seahawks — it may be a historic playing weekend within the NFL. Now it’s as much as Seattle to strive grow to be the primary residence staff to cowl this week.
