Betting the fave has been the play in NFL London games


USA TODAY Sports

The Indianapolis Colts and Jacksonville Jaguars will square off at Wembley Stadium in Week 4 as the NFL’s International Series contines with its first of three games in London, England this season and with the line currently Bills -2.5, bettors should make note as the fave has covered the spread in nine of the last 12 games in jolly ol’ England.

This season marks the tenth consecutive that the NFL will hold a game in London, England and is the fourth consecutive year the Jags have hopped across the pond. The New York Giants and Los Angeles Rams play at the first game at Twickenham Stadium in Week 7, while Washington will face the Cincinnati Bengals back at Wembley in Week 8.

There are a couple of trends through the first 14 games in London to bear in mind if you’re going to make a wager on the Colts-Jags game this weekend.

The favorite covered the spread in two of the three games in England last season and, as previously mentioned, is 9-3 ATS (75 percent) in the last 12 games. Faves are 9-5 ATS all-time in 14 games played in England.

Last season, the Jags beat the Bills 34-31, covering as 4.5-point pups, while the New York Jets topped the Miami Dolphins 27-14 as 2.5-point faves and the Kansas City Chiefs thumped the Detroit Lions 45-10 as 3-point faves.

If you’re looking at totals, the over/under count is 8-6 (57.1 percent) in the 14 games and the over has cashed in five of the past seven games across the Atlantic.

The total in this weekend’s matchup opened is currently 49.
