Through 10 weeks of NFL action, two major trends continue to dominate the sports betting landscape: primetime unders cashing at an absurd 77.4% clip as well as favorites winning straight-up at a highly profitable 65.8% rate.

For the third consecutive week, bettors witnessed favorites dominate the slate with a 10-3 straight-up (SU) mark, while posting a lucrative 7-5-1 against the spread (ATS) record. Overall, thanks to a massive run by favorites over the last month, the higher power-ranked teams by oddsmakers possess an amazing 98-51 SU (65.8%) record.

Following the Jets-Raiders snooze-fest on Sunday Night Football combined for a paltry 28 points resulting in primetime unders now owning an eye-popping 24-7 mark (77.4%). To put this in perspective, if a bettor were to blindly wager $100 on every primetime game this season they would find a profit of $1,489. Upon a deeper dive, we find that this lucrative trend began last season and has carried over into 2023, with unders on games played under the national lights sitting at 64-29 (68.8%).

Lamar Jackson and the Ravens witnessed their four-game winning streak come to a shocking end after suffering a 33-31 loss to the Browns as 5.5-point home favorites. Baltimore, who owns the NFLs best point differential (+113), surrendered the most points they have allowed this season after blowing a 31-17 fourth quarter lead.

$500K SGP Results In Massive Seven-Figure Hit

One lucky bettor turned a $500,00 Same-Game-Parlay in the Houston-Cincinnati  showdown into a massive lucrative cash on Sunday.

The investment involved strong belief in CJ Stroud and the Texans going into Paycor Stadium and upsetting Joe Burrow and the red-hot Bengals.

The wager included the Texans on the money line (+210) as well as the contest going over the posted game total of 45.5 points. The bettor also believed that Devin Singletary would find success on the ground eclipsing 51.5 rushing yards as well as scoring at least one touchdown (+155). 

After the veteran back scored and gained 150 rushing yards on the ground, the wager needed scoring late in the game. When the two clubs combined for 13 points in the final 3 minutes of the game, the total soared past the betting demand with the Texans emerging with a 30-27 win. The $500,000 wager returned $5.5 million in profit.

Bad Beat

Sunday Night Football 'Anytime Touchdown' Bad Beat

One bettor named @michael_mctigue on Instagram endured misery on Sunday Night Football on two separate occasions.

The bettor needed Jets star offensive weapons Garrett Wilson (+185) and Breece Hall (+185) to score a touchdown against the Raiders as the final leg of two separate parlay wagers. 

In the second quarter, Hall ran in for a three yard touchdown. However, tight end C.J. Uzomah was called for holding Maxx Crosby nullifying the score.

On the final play of the game, Zach Wilson launched a Hail Mary pass down the near sideline. As Wilson went up for the ball, teammate Tyler Conklin hit the pass preventing the ball from reaching the star wideout's hands.

Two horrible bad beats prevented turning two $250 five-player 'Anytime Touchdown' wagers into over $40,000 in winnings.

In Week 10, Survivor pool contestants around the country strongly selected the Bengals (-5.5) over Houston, Dallas (-16.5) over the Giants, Pittsburgh (-2.5) over Green Bay and Baltimore (-6) over the Browns.

The attraction of using favored teams is enhanced by the fact that in Survivor Pools, teams do not need to cover any spread - they just need to win the game.

In Week 10 of the NFL season, Cincinnati, Dallas, Pittsburgh and Baltimore made up over 87% of the selections in Survivor contests.

While both Dallas and Pittsburgh earned wins, many Survivor players were left upset when the Bengals and Ravens both suffered shocking home defeats.

To the delight of many Survivor Contest entrants, CeeDee Lamb made NFL history in Week 10 becoming the wide receiver to record at least 10 receptions and 150 receiving yards in three consecutive games.

Despite teams in Survivor Pools only needing to win the game and not cover point spreads, entrants can only use each team once during the regular season making strategy on when to select a team vitally important.
