NFL Betting Trends: Losing as a Favorite



It's no secret that every NFL head coach has a different style. Some like to yell. Some are calm. Some are geniuses. Others are clueless (cough, Marty Mornhinweg, Art Shell, sneeze).

I thought it would be interesting to see how each coach reacts coming off a loss as a favorite - both as a favorite and an underdog in the next contest.

The results were pretty remarkable. For example, Joe Gibbs (not listed), is 2-8 against the spread after losing as a favorite. He's a Hall-of-Fame coach, but perhaps Gibbs should have bought a couple of Herm Edwards' motivational DVDs.

On second thought, after looking at Edwards' records, maybe that's not such a good idea.

All records since 2002.
