Betting on the NFL week in and week out is at all times insane, and at the moment was no completely different. There have been a ton of backdoor covers at the moment, together with the Cincinnati Bengals masking 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 the moment’s video games. With the Pittsburgh Steelers masking the unfold in opposition to the New Orleans Saints, highway groups have gone undefeated and lined each unfold this NFL weekend. Highway groups at the moment are 12-Zero-2 ATS (based mostly on closing numbers) in Week 16 getting into into Sunday Evening Soccer.
I don’t bear in mind the final time each single residence group did not 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 data for me:
- Since 2005, residence groups haven’t did not cowl no less than one sport throughout an NFL week.
- Solely 4 earlier weeks had residence groups lined 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 might 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 attempt change into the primary residence group to cowl this week.
