- Every road team to win this week covered the spread.
- The Jacksonville Jaguars (+16) notched one of the biggest upsets in NFL history.
- Three different underdogs of seven or more points won outright.
LAS VEGAS – This past weekend in football had a bit of everything as road teams dominated and upsets were seemingly everywhere.
It was a good week to be a big underdog in the NFL, as underdogs of seven or more saw three outright winners.
The Jacksonville Jaguars (+16) and Denver Broncos (+10) secured the biggest upset victories of the week, leaving many NFL survivor pools in complete shambles. Road teams continued their success this season, notching seven outright victories as well.
Five of those victories came from road underdogs.
The Denver Broncos (+10) put any notice of “giving up” on the season after trading Von Miller to bed, with a swift 30-16 victory over the Dallas Cowboys.
Denver Broncos quarterback Teddy Bridgewater improved to 24-5 ATS on the road, continually being a burden for legal sports betting sites.
Bills, Pats, Titans
The Buffalo Bills are sure to see their Super Bowl odds plummet after dropping an ugly 9-6 game against the Jaguars. If bullish on the Bills this season, take advantage of this situation and “buy low” on Buffalo to win the Super Bowl (+500).
The New England Patriots (-3) rewarded the overwhelming number of sports bettors who backed them with a convincing 24-6 victory over the Carolina Panthers. The New England Patriots were the most publicly backed teams this week, gathering over 90% of the total money wagered.
The Tennessee Titans (+7) followed the trend of road upsets, by stunning the Los Angeles Rams 28-16 on Sunday Night Football.
Michigan State’s (-3) home in the top 5 of the college football rankings lasted a total of one week, after falling to the Purdue Boilermakers 40-29 on the road.
The Cincinnati Bearcats (-22.5) did not help their post-season chances by failing to cover against the Tulsa Hurricanes in an uninspiring 28-20 victory.
The Alabama Crimson Tide (-29.5) did not even come close to covering ATS against the LSU Tigers, eking out a mere six-point victory.
