Invariably when we hear the talking heads on TV analyzing a match-up in the NFL the topic of how much of a disadvantage west coast teams have when they play on the east coast...extensive travel, body clock issues with early starting times etc.
Fact check: If those west coast teams are not dogs of at least 2 points or they are favored they kick ass. Seattle was the latest of these qualifiers Sunday and they won SU and covered. These teams are now 27-3 SU and 23-3-4 ATS since 2016! (It is 16-2 ATS with an early starting time)
Conclusion: Any west coast time zone team that is not +2 or more NEEDS to be played when they go out East and not faded.
Teams traveling 3 time zones going East to west do just fine themselves, despite the dreaded travel they are 37-16-5 ATS (69.8%) since 2015. This result has no line limitations and includes every game played on the west coast by teams from the EST time zone.
