Titans vs. Patriots Wild Card Weather Forecast
The National Weather Service is calling for an 80% chance of precipitation Saturday, but as we know, wind is what bettors should truly worry about.
According to Sports Insights’ weather data, 5-7 mph winds are expected throughout the game which shouldn’t have much of an effect should the current forecast hold.
According to our Bet Labs software, 56% of NFL games played in double-digit breezes fall under the closing total.
However, matchups contested in winds of 9 mph or less go over the total 51.3% of the time.
In fact, the Titans vs. Patriots over/under has climbed from an opener of 43.5 to 44.5, showing that the betting market is not concerned with the current forecast, even if rain is expected in Foxborough.
