NFL Betting Trends: Divisional Dogs of Seven



Many bettors don't realize this initially, but divisional matchups are a lot different than regular contests. These teams know each other extremely well, so anything can happen.

Remember when the woeful Dolphins upset the eventual Super Bowl champion Patriots on Monday Night Football a few years ago? How about the dreadful Bears sweeping the vastly superior Packers last season?

Not convinced yet? Well, because anything can happen in divisional battles, it would make sense to bet a big underdog in such a matchup. Listed below are ATS records of coaches in divisional games where the spread was seven or more (since 2002). As usual, it's better to look at each situation than to bet something blindly.
