Week 6 NFL Trends

Underdogs bit hard in the early Week 5 games but the favorites returned the favor in all of the late games, earning a 7-7 split for the week.

“It was pretty much a break-even week heading into Monday Night,” said Kevin Bradley of Bovada.

“The big one was Indy winning outright, which went in our favor, but bettors cleaned up on the Chicago Bears rout of the Jaguars.”
