NFL Sunday Night Football Betting

The marquee game of the betting week, Sunday Night Football has been around on NBC since 2006 and typically highlights the best teams and matchups of the week. In order to guarantee the popularity and success of SNF flex-scheduling was introduced by the NFL for later weeks of the season in order to make sure that happens. Ironically no SNF games during the 2023 season were flexed, but there was a Monday Night Football game moved in the first year the NFL allowed those games to be flexed.

One thing the network and league have done in recent years is leave the time slot open for the final weekend of the regular season to ensure the most compelling matchup is aired. In Week 18 of the 2023 season it was determined the AFC East confrontation between the Buffalo Bills and Miami Dolphins would move to Sunday primetime. The winner of that game would claim the division title and the playoff seedings were impacted by the Bills 21-14 win. With a majority of teams eliminated from postseason contention or already locked into a playoff spot the chances of getting a dud with a set schedule were astronomical.

Nine of the 14 teams that qualified for the playoffs were featured at least once on SNF with the Buffalo Bills, Dallas Cowboys and Miami Dolphins each making a season-high three appearances. Tampa Bay, Cleveland, Houston, LA Rams and Detroit were the playoff participants that were not involved in a SNF contest.

The Cowboys took part in three of the most lopsided games on the SNF slate posting the largest victory in their season opening 40-0 rout of the New York Giants. Their 42-10 setback in San Francisco in Week 5 had the next biggest margin. Dallas also contributed to the late season collapse of Philadelphia with a 33-13 victory in Week 14. The 20-point margin in that game was the fifth largest on the 18-game slate.

The two best teams during the 2023 regular season combined to go 3-0 on SNF with the Niners win over Dallas their lone appearance. The Baltimore Ravens won twice on the road beating the LA Chargers 20-10 in Week 12 and posting a 24-7 triumph over Jacksonville in Week 15. The Ravens, Packers and Pittsburgh Steelers were the three teams with multiple SNF appearances that did not lose a game.

The NFL is hopeful that the largest media market in the country will one day produce some quality football which is why the clubs get a share of primetime games. This was supposed to be the year the Jets and Giants were contenders to reach the playoffs in the same season for the first time since 2006. The Giants were coming off a season that saw them reach the postseason and the Jets landed Super Bowl winning QB Aaron Rodgers to take them to the playoffs. Welp, we know how that turned out with two SNF losses apiece adding to their misery.

In the middle nine weeks of the schedule home teams went 8-1 including seven straight wins from Week 5 to Week 11. The four games at the beginning of the slate and the four at the end saw the road club exhibit dominance going 7-1 in those outings. Overall, though, it was fairly evenly split with the host team going 10-8 for the season.
