PICK SIXTY SPORTS WEEKLY TIP:
We often hear how the NFL is a quarterback driven league and in an effort to protect one of its biggest assets, they have rewritten the book on player safety with strict rules about how, when and where a QB can be hit. Occasionally the walls still come crumbling down and for teams like Miami (4.4), Oakland (4.3) and Pittsburgh (3.9), the league’s offensive leaders in QB sacks per game, it happens more often than they would like to admit.
One trend we are seeing this season for teams after watching their QB get trampled is the ability for play callers to make adjustments. With the right conditions it’s produced a highly profitable situation for bettors and so far in Week 9 the Dolphins have already padded this profile’s stats with their 22-20 win over Cincinnati.
Home teams playing immediately off a loss where their QB was sacked four times (or more) have a 15-6 straight-up record, covering the spread at a rate of 80-percent (16-4-1 ATS).
The favorites are 8-1-1 ATS on an average line of -5.5 while home dogs have cashed eight of 11 tickets, two of the losses thanks to Jacksonville and one of those being a neutral site game in London. Buffalo (+3) and the Jets (+6) are “live” this Sunday with tough matchups against undefeated Kansas City and NFC super power New Orleans. Consider this angle as one part of your handicapping process and good luck.
