2013 NFL Money Makers and Bankroll Busters

There is no doubt that the Eagles were one of the most exciting teams in the league to watch this past season with an offense that was ranked second in the NFL in total yards (417.2) and fourth in points (27.6). Their defense had its issues defending against the pass, but it was vastly improved at stopping the run and it ended the regular season ranked in the middle of the pack in points allowed (23.9). The net result was a 10-6 straight-up record and a trip to the playoffs as the NFC East Division Champion.

For anyone who likes to bet on the NFL, Philadelphia proved to be costly at times especially at home. It went an even 8-8 against the spread with a 3-5 ATS record at the Linc. During the Birds' second-half 7-2 SU run to the division title, they were slightly better ATS at 5-3-1, but nowhere close to money maker status. The one area you could have made some money betting the Eagles was the total line in their eight road games given that six of the eight went OVER the closing line.

The following link is to a recent article I wrote for Sporting Charts covering the NFL's top money makers from last season and well as which teams were just one big drain on the bankroll.
