Should You Be Betting On or Against New NFL Coaches?
Eight NFL teams will start the season with new head coaches, meaning 25% of the league has implemented new coaching styles, systems and schemes since last year.
As a result, we wondered if there is value betting against these teams because new coaches need a “feeling out” period to learn and understand their personnel? Or does the rest of the league have such a hard time preparing and game planning for new coaches that it makes sense to bet on them early in the season?
We performed the analysis on new NFL coaches for ESPN.com and found some very interesting early season trends that bettors can take advantage as early as Week 1.
