Value Index Edge

 

What is the VI Edge?

The Value Index Edge is a handicapping tool that creates an edge for each NFL matchup based on the VegasInsider Value Index Power Rankings, which are updated throughout the regular season and playoffs.

All 32 teams are given an "Index" rating and the designated home team in each matchup will receive extra points based on their venue.

The majority of matchups will have a VI Edge designated to one team and bettors can factor that data into their wagers.
