It's the point differential – the number scored versus the number given up – that good gamblers are focusing their energy on when they're guessing. Look for teams with losing records and total point differentials under seven times the number of games played. Teams that lose small have often fallen victim to penalties or turnovers. That's part of football, but it doesn't set a precedent for the next contest.
