The Ultimate NFL Betting System

When it comes to NFL betting systems, there is one that stands out above everything else. The bad part is that it usually only offers one play a year, and has had several years without a single play.

The system is simply to bet against any NFL team that has scored 30 or more points in two straight games, while allowing 10 or fewer points in its last two games, provided the team is playing a non-divisional opponent. That's all there is to it.

Since 1989, the system is 15-1, losing only in 2008. The record tells you that there aren't many plays, but you definitely want to pay attention to when they do occur.

There was just one play in 2012, which was the New York Giants+7 against the 49ers. San Francisco was coming into the game off a 34-0 thumping of the New York Jets and followed that up with a 45-3 pasting of the Buffalo Bills.

The 49ers were never in the game against the Giants, losing 26-3.
