Crazy Calls = Crazy Results?

9 underdogs of a field goal or more won NFL games this week.
Searching back to 1989, there has NEVER been more wins in a week by substantial underdogs
(and only once, in Week 16 of 2006, was this week's 9 upsets even matched)
Vegas experts speculate that the randomness of the refs calls is resulting in historically random results.
How Long Will it Continue?

Based on current betting odds, there's a 43% chance replacement officials WILL referee this year's Super Bowl!
Monday Night Refund?

At least one sportsbook (Paddy Power - based in Ireland) REFUNDED all Packers bets in full, no questions asked - calling it a matter of simple justice.

Interesting stuff RJ thanks as always.

After the the afternoon games I was looking over the lines, and I said to myself "Pretty good day to be on the underdogs". And then of course SNF and MNF both cash the underdog.


I love action.
