NFL Betting Trends Week 6 – Trend Wisely – The Sports Gambling Podcast
Week 5 was a tough week all around for the NFL sports betting community. Anytime we have outright wins from +380 (Raiders) and +310 (Dolphins) underdogs and unders hit as often as overs, it’s probably not going to look great on the betting slips. If you are feeling down in the dumps (I am after a 5-10 record last week on target sides/totals), don’t worry I have been reading that a lot of the sharps out there had a rough go of it as well. We knew the weird week was coming soon (even though we predicted it back in Week 3), but every season we get a couple of these and I think Week 5 was just about as weird as it gets. Keep in mind, we almost saw outright wins from touchdown-plus underdogs in the Giants, Vikings, and Chargers.
