Bettors are likely to be drawn more toward backing the underdog and trying to profit from a small stake.
As it happens, the above example is a result which actually transpired a few seasons back with the Cowboys running out surprise victors, 33-20. The odds on offer produced winnings over four and half times the stake, going to show how profitable it can be to back the less fancied team - “every dog has its day” remember!
At the same time, this isn’t a regular occurrence when it comes to betting on the NFL hence why most bettors enjoy the better odds of a Point Spread bet.
However, you can win a sizable amount by making a simple money line bet. Back the underdog on the right day and even a low stake can yield a substantial return.
Course, there are no rules to say the favorite can’t be backed either. But the odds offered on an event expected to happen are naturally lower, naturally. A higher stake is required to yield a return of any sort.
