At the risk of sounding like a broken record – underdogs continue to dominate the NFL betting world. Last week pups were 9-5 against the spread, bringing their season record to an astonishing mark of 74-57-1 (58 per cent). As we’ve mentioned previously, the way betting trends usually work would make you think that an adjustment is coming. However, we’ve been saying that for more than a month now.
Week 10’s odds feature just a couple of double-digit favourites – the Green Bay Packers at -13 at home to the Jacksonville Jaguars and the New Orleans Saints at -10 at home to the San Francisco 49ers. Interestingly enough, early bettors are all over the favourites in those matchups with the Packers seeing 74 per cent of point spread bets, while 90 per cent of bettors like the Saints to cover.
If you’re looking for more outright upsets, this could be another good week for you. Six games on the board feature point spreads of three or fewer points, including a great matchup between Josh Allen’s 7-2 Buffalo Bills and Kyler Murray’s 5-3 Arizona Cardinals. The Cards are holding as 2-point home favourites, but more than three quarters of early spread bets are backing the Bills. This game also has the highest total on the Week 10 board at 56 with 86 per cent of wagers coming in on the over.
The Pittsburgh Steelers are the NFL’s only unbeaten team at 8-0, but quarterback Ben Roethlisberger may not be available this weekend after he was placed on the club’s COVID-19 list. As of now the Steelers are set as 7.5-point favourites against the visiting Cincinnati Bengals. About 65 per cent of wagers are backing the Bengals to cover.
The last game on the Week 10 board is a NFC North matchup between the Chicago Bears and the Minnesota Vikings. Chicago is listed as a 2.5-point home underdog, while nearly 80 per cent of spread bets are on the Vikes.
The last major of the season tees off on Thursday with the opening round of The Masters from Augusta. Bryson DeChambeau has seen a lot of betting support in the last week as the tournament favourite and has moved from +707 all the way to +496. Dustin Johnson is another popular bet, dipping from +1200 last week to +600 this week, while Tiger Woods has moved from +2700 to +1500. If you’re looking for props, check out DeChambeau’s longest drive over/under 380.5 yards or whether there will be a hole-in-one (Yes -200, No +140).
