TNF betting trends
Thursday Night Football games can be difficult to predict because of how little time teams have to prepare compared to a normal week of the NFL regular season. Most teams will get done playing a tough, physical game on a Sunday with just three days off before suiting up and getting back on the field.
That’s not a ton of recovery time, but it seems like players have adjusted to that over the past few years.
One item to consider when placing a bet on Thursday Night Football is how well teams typically play at night. If there is a large enough sample size for a particular head coach, a trend like this could be valuable.
Just like betting on every NFL game, it is important to monitor injury reports but especially for Thursday with such minimal recovery time. Teams tend to do a good job of giving fans and bettors accurate information on whether players will be healthy enough to play or whether their availability is in question.
Be on the lookout for teams that had extra days of rest. If one team is coming off a bye week while the other just played on Sunday, that could be a distinct advantage to take into account. Also, home teams have an advantage without needing to travel and can maximize practice time. With all of these items, however, oddsmakers have them factored into their Thursday Night Football betting lines every week.
Finally, one important thing to consider before betting on Thursday Night Football games is that you don’t have to. Stand-alone betting events like Thursday Night Football odds, Sunday Night Football odds and Monday Night Football odds receive a ton of betting action that they otherwise would not if they were just part of the usual Sunday afternoon mix of games.
Picking your spots can be a good idea, and you should only place a Thursday Night Football bet when you think you have an edge.
