I wonder what the longest favorite streaks are.

Jacksonville Jaguars October 7, 2012 - December 18, 2014

Consecutive games as underdogs: 42
ATS record during streak: 14-26-1
Four different head coaches (Jack Del Rio, Mel Tucker, Mike Mularky and Gus Bradley) and three different starting quarterbacks (Blaine Gabbert, Chad Henne and Blake Bortles) were the key cogs in Jacksonville's 42-game streak.


And yet, two of those are current head coaches (and one who is not was in 2016), one of those is a current starting QB (and one who is not was in 2016).  Recycle much?

Joe Thomas doesn't deserve the Browns.

Either the Montana days in San Fran or the Greatest Show on Turf Rams would be my guess

After some google-fu...The GSoT...

"For the final 14 regular season games and the three playoff games in 1999, all seventeen games in 2000, all 19 games in 2001, and the first four games in 2002 - a stretch of 57 straight games - the Rams took the field as favorites"

I think it might be the other way around, honestly

Myles Garrett will be healthy in a week or two. Be very afraid.

I didn't understand half of the shiat in that story, and I couldn't figure out which was because of betting jingo, and which was because of 21st century editor-free "journalism".

To be fair they should not televise Browns games.

Only watched one Browns play the entire season.  Was at the mall with the gf and happened to catch on one of the tvs the blocked punt recovered for a TD on the first (3 and out) drive of the season.  Would be nice if they turned it around, but I no longer watch them nor care.  I adopted the Packers when the Browns left and I'll just stick with them if I want to root for a football team.

Well this is farking stupid.  Amazon prime video on my Roku doesn't have the game, so instead I have to unplug the kid's Xbox and run an HDMI cable to my old Chromebook.

How'd you manage that idiocy?

No Bills who have the longest playoff drought: both currently and of all-time?
