NFL bettors get to try something they have only had the chance to experience once in the past 40 years here in Week 7. That is, bet against the New York Jets as double-digit home underdogs.
We are not saying it will be the last time it happens even this season, but the Jets getting 11 points at home to Buffalo is big news (see matchup stats here). It happened just once back in 2018 when a Tom Brady vs Josh McCown battle ended predictably. Other than that, our trusty NFL database didn’t find any other instances where the Jets were disrespected so horribly.
On the other side of the same game, another rarity – the Buffalo Bills as double-digit road favorites. That hasn’t happened since 2004 and just five times since 1980.
In other betting trends news NOT associated with that game, New Orleans looks to extend its crazy October ATS run and several teams certainly have not found lucky Week 7 to be very lucky, as they ride horrendous ATS streaks. Opening NFL odds courtesy of BetRivers and SugarHouse.
