Underdogs are hottest betting trend going in the NFL these days after a dominating Week 8. Teams that were getting points finished 11-3 against the spread last week, with seven of those underdogs winning outright. Now, as we’re halfway through the regular season, underdogs are covering spreads at a 68-51 clip (57 per cent). To say that these betting trends are an anomaly would be an understatement at this point. Generally speaking, underdogs and favourites are much closer to an even split against the spread, so now bettors are tasked with figuring out when/if this trend will turn.
Week 9 features a number of strong teams getting points at home – San Francisco, Indianapolis, and Buffalo. The 49ers do have major injury issues as they get set to host the Green Bay Packers on a short week, though. San Francisco will be without quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, star tight end George Kittle and a handful of running backs on Thursday Night Football. Oddsmakers had this game as a Pick ‘em before all the injury news came out and now the 49ers are at +6.
Indianapolis opened as a 4-point underdog at home to Baltimore before that line was trimmed to Colts +2.5, and Buffalo opened at +1.5 before moving to +2.5 against Seattle. More than 85 per cent of bettors like the two road teams to cover in those matchups.
The biggest game on the betting board is the Sunday Night Football showdown between Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Drew Brees’ New Orleans Saints. With the Bucs set as 5-point favourites, the betting public is pretty much split on spread bets. However, more than 90 per cent of over/under bettors like this one to finish with more than 51 points.
The final major of the season goes next week as the 84th edition of The Masters tees up on Thursday from the Augusta National Golf Club. All eyes will be on the +707 favourite, Bryson Dechambeau, who already has one major title this season after winning the US Open. Other popular bets include Justin Thomas (+1000) and Rory McIlroy and Dustin Johnson, each currently priced at +1200. And, of course, we do expect a significant action on Tiger Woods, who is hunting for his sixth green jacket and his 16th major victory. Woods is set at +2700.
