There is one constant in sports gambling. That constant is that by the time the masses catch on to something to the point they can beat the bookie, things will change in the opposite direction. In this example, I am referring to the infamous home underdog on Monday Night Football. The season started off with the Denver Broncos DESTROYING the home dog Oakland Raiders 41-14 to continue the trend to once again take money from the public bettors who have fallen under the guise of home dogs on MNF the past few seasons.
If you go back to last year, road favorites won at a 67% clip to continue the downard spiral of the home underdog on Monday Night. This could be the reason at last check close to 66% of the public was fed up with donating money to their bookie and backed the New York Giants in the hopes fading the home dog would cash in for them. So what happens? Yep, you guessed it. The Cleveland Browns getting a full touchdown at home dominate the defending Super Bowl Champion Giants and win 35-14, baffling sports bettors yet again.
Like anything in life, if something seems to good to be true it probably is.
