Here’s a gambling tip for today…

Bet the favorites. Yep, you heard me. It may not be fun, it may not be interesting, but if things hold like they’ve been going, you’ll thank me.

Via the WaPo:

Starting in Week 7, NFL favorites have gone 54-24-7 against the spread, covering at least 60 percent of the games in each week. This 69 percent overall cover rate is an anomaly: According to Bet Labs, NFL favorites have covered the spread in just 49.9 percent of all games since 2003. In Weeks 1-6 this season, favorites went 38-52 against the spread.

Over the past two weeks, favorites have gone 22-7-1 ATS, an absurd 75.9 percent clip.

Now, of course, every single underdog will hit.
