Most normal NFL football fans do not think about games involving the two conferences unless it is the Super Bowl. Those of us seeking a betting edge are keenly aware about this week after week.
There are several generic or over time assumptions that are still floating around that have less validity today. Among them are flat spots for teams playing nonconference contests as a ‘sandwich’ game, with division tilts on either side of this ballgame. In theory, this makes sense, as does the fact this could be a higher scoring affair because the stakes are lower compared to a division or conference clash that carries more weight for tie-breaker situations. However, those setting the NFL odds knew about this a long time ago and have reworked the numbers to fit public perception and consumption.
