Last week, we told you to be careful about road favorites. There were six of them, and only two covered (Rams, Broncos) and three lost outright (Bears, Colts, Panthers). As we’ve been saying on the show all season, it’s about more than stats in the NFL.
On this week’s episode of Coming Up Winners, we looked at the biggest games of the week, and the psychology behind them, factoring in the stats and the spot, and everything else.
Among the games we discussed:
Rams (-3) at Bears
Carolina (-2) at Browns
Eagles (+3.5) at Cowboys
Ravens (+6.5) at Chiefs
Patriots (-7.5) at Miami
Three of those are road favorites. We’re warning you. Again. And worse yet, there are more: The Saints (-8.5) are road favorites in Tampa; the Giants (-3.5) are road favorites in Washington; the Broncos (-4) are road favorites in San Francisco; and the Lions (-3) are road favorites in Arizona.
