Historical TNF Betting Trends & TNF Betting Tips

Just like teams have less time to prep before taking the field on Thursday nights, Kentucky bettors will also have less time to research and place bets. Here are some important factors to remember when betting on Thursday Night Football odds.

Before placing bets on Thursday Night Football odds, be sure to do your research. Unders went 11-6 in TNF in 2022, while road teams went 10-7. Be sure to pay attention to injury reports, as players have far less time to recover from the previous weekend's games.

βœ… No. 1: Do your research

Thursday Night Football is a different handicap than the rest of the week's games. Bettors need to research when/where teams previously played, if they're coming off a bye, potential injuries and more.

So make your Thursday Night Football predictions, but be ready to change them after doing some digging.

βœ… No. 2: Monitor the injury report

With only four days before a game instead of seven, there is much less time for players to recover. Players injured the previous Sunday and questionable, or worse, heading into Thursday are a lot less likely to play in a TNF game.

βœ… No. 3: When in doubt, lean under

With the reduced rest, players still recovering from last Sunday's games and decreased time to prepare and execute game plans, TNF games can be tough to watchβ€”and low-scoring. Unders were 11-6 last season, including games of 19-3, 12-7 and 12-9.

Through the first 15 weeks of the 2023-24 season, though, the Over went 9-6 on Thursday Night Football. Still, only seven of the 14 Thursday Night Football contests ended with more than 44 combined points.

Also, the Under went 37-22 in NFL standalone contests through the first 15 weeks β€” those being Thursday/Sunday/Monday Night primetime games, as well as games played internationally, on Thanksgiving Day, and on Friday and Saturday.
