Happy Thanksgiving folks! It’s a fantastic time of year in sports, and in the NFL this is when teams solidify their playoff positions. This week, let’s discuss a few teams in the playoff hunt that might be overvalued road favorites.
Saints Being Dismissed
The nightcap on Thanksgiving is an intriguing one between two clubs that are desperate for a win. The betting market has shifted in the early part of this week, driving Buffalo up to -6.5 at most shops, likely due to the news of Alvin Kamara not practicing again on Tuesday. Kamara is obviously an impact player for New Orleans, but the market’s unchecked support for Buffalo, which has not covered consecutive games since the beginning of October, is somewhat surprising. Josh Allen has been erratic in his play over the last three weeks, and the Bills have been largely untested with one of the easiest schedules in the league. In one of their biggest tests of the season this past Sunday, they were handed a 41-15 loss by the Colts.
