Another week of underdog bettors cashing tickets has come and gone after favourites covered the spread in just four of Week 6’s matchups. After the 12-4 performance against the spread (ATS), underdogs are now an absurd 54-36-2 ATS on the year.
Week 7 kicks off on Thursday Night Football with an intriguing AFC West matchup between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Denver Broncos. The Chiefs have dropped consecutive games and three in a row ATS after their blistering start, while Denver has won its last two following and 0-4 start. Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes was held to fewer than 300 passing yards for the first time this season last week against the Houston Texans. He managed just 41 yards through the air in the second half of that loss. Kansas City’s 30th-ranked rushing defence will see a heavy dose of Denver’s ground game on Sunday, but the early action is heavily weighted in the visitors’ corner. More than 80 percent of bettors like the Chiefs to cover as field goal favourites.
If you still haven’t figured out the San Francisco 49ers are for real, it’s time to get with the program. The Niners are 5-0 and have covered the spread in four of their games so far. They also own the No. 2 total defence and fourth-best total offence in the entire league. Their game in Washington looks like a mismatch on paper and oddsmakers have San Francisco as a 9.5-point favourite on the road. Nearly 90 percent of early bets like the Niners to cover against a Washington team that is 0-5 and hasn’t covered a point spread since Week 1.
Oddsmakers are expecting a shootout in Atlanta with the Los Angeles Rams coming to town. The 54.5-point total is the highest on the Week 7 board and the early action is on the Rams to cover -3 and for this game to play over the total.
To finish off this week, it’s another big spread for the 6-0 New England Patriots to cover on the road. The Pats are 9.5-point favourites at the New York Jets for Monday Night Football. No surprise that the betting public likes New England there, but even despite the Patriots’ dominant defence and New York’s suspect offence, nearly 70 percent of bettors like this game to play over the 42.5-point over/under.
If you had the Buffalo Sabres as the best bet in the NHL a couple of weeks into the season, congratulations. The Sabres are off to a brilliant start at 5-0-1 straight up and 5-1 against the puck-line spread. That has their loyal supporters up more than four units already. The Sabres are in California this week, playing at Anaheim, Los Angeles, and San Jose so there should be opportunities to put more cash in the bank.
It’s a rare Friday night card for the UFC and it looks like it will be a good one at the TD Garden in Boston. The undefeated (11-0) Dominick Reyes is a -190 favourite against veteran Chris Weideman, who makes his debut at light heavyweight. In the co-main event, Jeremy Stephens is a slight -115 favourite in a rematch with Yair Rodriguez after their fight last month ended early with a no-contest due to an eye poke.
