  • Using Bet Labs, detail the smart way to bet NFL over/unders when temperatures dip below 30 degrees.

On Sunday, the forecast calls for average temperatures of 17 degrees when the Packers host the Seahawks at Lambeau Field (6:40 p.m. ET, FOX). The total for this Divisional Round matchup is 47.

A majority of bets are on the under, which isn’t all that surprising. A theory among recreational bettors is that cold temperatures lead to low-scoring games.

Does the data support this idea or is it an old gamblers’ tale that is actually creating value by going against this commonly-held theory?
