It was an even split between favourites and underdogs against the spread in Week 5 at 7-7-1, meaning pups still hold a considerable advantage on the year. Underdogs are now 44-32-2 this season against the number with 31 of those dogs winning outright.
To no surprise, the New England Patriots are the biggest favourite on the board at -17 as the New York Giants pay them a visit on Thursday Night Football. The Pats have allowed a league-low 34 total points as they head into Week 6 as the NFL’s only 5-0 team. Almost three quarters of early bets are supporting the Pats to cover the big spread.
The only other undefeated team in the league, the surprising San Francisco 49ers, are on the road against the Los Angeles Rams this week in a big NFC West matchup. The Niners are coming off a dominant Monday Night Football win over Cleveland and look like a serious contender. San Francisco ranks second overall in total defence and the club’s offence is second overall in producing 31.8 points per game. About 65 percent of bettors like the Niners to cover as 3.5-point underdogs on the road.
Over in the NFC North, there’s a big game between the Detroit Lions and Green Bay Packers on Monday Night Football. The Cheeseheads lead the division at 4-1 straight up and against the spread, but all four teams in the North are above .500. Detroit lost a close one with Kansas City before having its bye last week, so should come in well rested and prepared for Week 6. The Lions (2-1-1 straight up and 3-1 against the spread) are set as 4.5-point underdogs, with 65 percent of bettors putting their cash on the Packers.
The Dallas Cowboys and Seattle Seahawks are easily the two most popular bets of the week so far with nearly 90 percent of the action for their match-ups. Both squads are on the road as Dallas is a 7-point favourite at the New York Jets and the Seahawks are 2-point favourites at the Cleveland Browns.
If you’re a hockey fan, you may have heard some buzz about the Toronto Maple Leafs this season… at this point it’s hard to avoid. Bettors have been all over the Buds too. After a blistering start, Auston Matthews is the new +400 favourite to win the Rocket Richard Trophy as the league’s top goal scorer. Toronto is also at +225 to be the next Canadian team to win the Stanley Cup. The Leafs host the reigning President’s Trophy champion Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday and the Detroit Red Wings on Saturday night.
