NFL Point Spread Database and Historical Odds
Knowing how a team performed in the past gives you an idea of how they could compete in the future. Since you don’t have a Magic 8 Ball – because it’s not 1996 – we have something better. With our historical odds database, you get over 30 years of NFL point spread betting trends data. This information can give you an edge when placing your football bets on any given team.
NFL Historical Spreads and Results
Odds Shark provides bettors with historical data and odds records in an easy-to-use archive. Not to toot our own horn, our database rules like the 1994 San Francisco 49ers. We offer one of the best sports databases on the internet to give bettors enough handicapping info to make smart picks. You can search for head-to-head matchup data between any two teams, in any month, at any location, and with any point spread – for any time during the season, preseason, and postseason games.
Let’s say you want to know how the New England Patriots have performed against the New York Jets in October, on their home turf over the last 10 games. You can find all that out in seconds with our database. NFL against the spread history gives you a snapshot of how a squad has contended in different situations and what the odds were.
Database searches can also be done on team vs division or team vs conference, giving you even more betting insight. For example, you can check in with the Green Bay Packers and see how they’ve fared against the AFC East in their last 10, 20 or 30 games, or vs the entire AFC in those same time periods – at home, on the road or at any location.
Moreover, our database allows you to search for results for any team before or after their bye week. You’ll see how the Philadelphia Eagles do after a week of rest. Find out how the New Orleans Saints did in their final game before going off on a one-week break. These NFL odds, stats and trends will help you with your football betting no matter which team you pick.
Where Does our NFL Historical Odds Data Come From?
We have taken what is known as the consensus closing line. This is the average of facts and figures from several Vegas casinos and online sportsbooks. We use this system because it is a fair representation of the info bettors would have received before game time. The only factors our database does not track are line moves and live odds. If the Dallas Cowboys were listed at -7 on a Tuesday in December 2011 and the line closed at -5.5, the database will show -5.5. Plus, if there were live odds offered during this specific game, our archive won’t pick it up.
Starting in 1980, every NFL point spread, OVER/UNDER result and score is stored here in our databank. From 1990 onward, every box score and stat joined the archive to forge this mammoth database. Our historical odds system was established to give you a huge archive that you can easily sort through. This allows everyone to search their own angles and find their own trends instead of relying on websites that only display old matchup reports and rankings without context. You need context, otherwise you’re looking at a bunch of nonsense. We don’t support that kind of baloney at Odds Shark unless it’s between two pieces of bread.
How to Use Odds Shark’s NFL Historical Spreads and Results Database
Our football database is easy to use. Whether you’re betting on the Super Bowl or looking for NFL odds for a game played in November, we’ve got you covered. Here’s how our betting database works:
There are three tabs – Head To Head, Before/After Bye, and Vs Division/Conference. Once you decide what type of information you need, you can move on to the next step and handicap your chosen NFL team.
1. Team – For this part, you would type in the name of the city/place where the team plays. For instance, you would type in Carolina for the Panthers or New England for the Patriots.
2. Opponent – You can leave this field open for all opponents or select a specific team. Like the Team box, you’ll need to type in the city instead of the name. In a case where an area has multiple teams, you would use LA Rams or LA Chargers instead of just Los Angeles.
3. How Many Games – Choose 10, 20 or 30, depending on how many matchups you want to look at.
4. Played in Month – Select August, September, October, November, December or January – basically from the preseason to the playoffs – or Any for a broad range of information.
5. Played In – Decide if you want data for preseason, regular season, postseason or all of the above.
6. Where – This field is where you’d pick between Home, Road or Anywhere.
7. Favorite/Underdog – This field requires a selection of Favorite, Underdog, Pick’em or Either.
8. Enter Range – Choose the point range. Remember that this isn’t NCAA college football and the majority of NFL teams don’t score more than 30 points.
Once you input the necessary information, you’ll get the scores for both the home and away team, the home spread, the total and if it went OVER or UNDER the oddsmaker’s set number, and how your chosen squad performed against the spread (ATS).
Pick and choose which NFL stats and betting trends you want to see. You are in control of the information and, most importantly, it’s free. The next time you’re betting on the NFL, use our odds consensus data archives. It’s better than even the most magic of 8-balls.
