Odds against 4 NFL Road Teams Being Favored?
Only 4 road favorites in last 7 years 4 this week!
Las Vegas, Nevada (December 30, 2008) All four NFL playoff road teams are favored this week: Atlanta -2 at Arizona; Colts -1 at San Diego; Baltimore -3 at Miami; Philly -3 at Minnesota.
According to RJ Bell of Pregame.com: In the prior seven seasons (dating back to 2001) only 4 road teams have been favored in NFL playoff games. The road teams are undefeated in those games, winning on all four occasions.
During those seven playoffs a combined 70 games were played (not counting Super Bowls, which are played on neutral fields with no true home team). RJ Bell of Pregame.com said: Based upon 4 of the last 70 playoff games having road favorites, the odds all 4 rode teams being favored this week was over 93,000 to 1 against.
No road team has been bigger than a three-point favorite in the prior 7 seasons. Based upon early betting action, both Baltimore and Philadelphia have a strong chance to be favored by 3.5 points or more.
