NFL Week 17 Point Spread Odds: Historic Betting Trend Review

Week 17 Point Spread Odds: Favorites hold the advantage

Please Note: As you read along, unless other wise stated, the statistics in this article are for the 96 games that have been played during Week 17 dating back to the 2006 NFL season. When it comes to point spread lines the favorites hold their own fairly well as they come in with a 52-40-4 winning record. Favorites covered the line by a very slim 8-7-1 margin back in 2011, while the numbers were even at 7-7-2 ATS during NFL 2010.

Home favorites are the vastly superior betting side over road chalk

Home favorites own a 38-26-2 edge over the visiting pups, while the battle between road chalk and home underdogs is dead even at 14-14-2. On lines of 6.5 points or less, favorites hold a 32-21-4 advantage, while spreads of a touchdown or more come in very even at 20-19 in favor of the dogs. Search out some quality home favorites, preferably teams that have something to play for, and invest wisely is the bottom line here.
