NFL Records ATS After the Bye

by | Jun 21, 2013 | nfl

In the NFL, certain teams have had decidedly more success against the spread after a bye week than others. The theory would be that certain coaches are more skilled at motivating their team and use the extra week to their advantage for game planning and preparation.

However, that to me is bull. The against the spread trends for after the bye week are just happenings. Like when you flip a coin, it can come up tails 8 of 10 times, but at some point, it will even itself out.

For those of you that feel there is some value to these trends, we have included each team’s record after the bye (regular season and playoffs) straight-up win/loss, versus the betting line, and their O/U records for the last 12 seasons. (Updated through 2021)
