Week 13 Betting Notes
November 28, 2017
Business is definitely starting to pick up on the road to the NFL playoffs. Almost all of the top teams in the league are on the road in Week 13, including six of the eight division leaders. There are some great storylines for bettors to keep in mind before heading to BookMaker.eu this week and placing wagers.
The Greatest Show on Grass
The Rams haven't had a winning season or been in the playoffs since 2004, but they're well on their way to breaking that 13-year playoff hex this season.
This week, Los Angeles is favored by a touchdown on the road against the Cardinals. The Rams haven't been favored on the road often since the "Greatest Show on Turf" fizzled out, but this week, they're giving a full touchdown to the Cardinals in the desert. It's the first time the Rams have been favored by this many points on the road since 2003 when Kurt Warner was the quarterback, Torry Holt was in the prime of his career and Steve Bartman was just another fan in the bleachers at Wrigley Field during the Cubs' run to the NLCS.
A Two-Dog Night in Seattle
The Seahawks aren't accustomed to being underdogs at home. In fact, prior to the game three weeks ago against Atlanta, the last time Seattle was an underdog at CenturyLink Field came back in Russell Wilson's rookie season.
Seattle didn't open up as a pup to the Falcons but did close that way. Now, they're opening as underdogs at BookMaker.eu in their very next home game against the Eagles. It's the first time in five years that the Seahawks have been pups in consecutive home games, and it could be the first time they've lost three straight games at home since 2008.
De Ja Vu in the Windy City
The Bears are virtually never favorites, and we found out why that's the case four weeks ago when they welcomed the Packers to Soldier Field. They were beaten 23-16 in what is still, to date, the only win in Brett Hundley's career.
Chicago has now lost four straight games in which it was a chalk, a mark that dates back to the 2015 season.
This week, the Bears are 5-point favorites against the 49ers. The last time they were favored by this many points in any game was in the first week of December in 2015 when this same San Francisco team came to the Windy City.
De ja vu much?
A Chalky November
The only game left to play in the month of November is the Thursday nighter between the Redskins and the Cowboys. Heading into the last game of the month, favorites are a whopping 37-15-4 ATS, huge month for public bettors.
On Thursday Night Football, we're going to be in a situation where the underdog Redskins are the public side. Dallas has been beaten in three straight games with Ezekiel Elliott serving his six-game suspension.
