One could argue the most dangerous bet in the NFL is on a road favorite. As we saw Thursday, laying points on the road is risky, and the Saints went in giving a touchdown to Dallas, and lost outright.
Well wait until you see the Sunday lineup.
The following teams are road favorites
Chicago Bears -4 at New York Giants
LA Rams -10 at Detroit Lions
Denver Broncos -5.5 at Cincinnati Bengals
Indianapolis Colts -4 at Jacksonville Jaguars
Carolina Panthers -3 at Tampa Bay Bucs
KC Chiefs -14.5 at Oakland Raiders
Six road favorites, two by double digits, and one with a backup QB (Chase Daniel for the Bears). Interestingly, all six of the home underdogs are .500 are less, and really only one (Cincinnati) has a shot at the playoffs.
We discussed all of this and much more on the latest episode of Coming Up Winners. All the answers to your questions are on that podcast.
All six road favorites are firmly in the playoff hunt.
Should we call this incentive weekend?
