NFL Defensive Statistics

In the NFL, you will hear many people say “defense wins championships.” The real question is: does a good defense allow you to win your wager?

At Odds.com, we do our best to help you answer this question every Sunday. With the assistance of our NFL defensive statistics, compiled for each team, you can get the insight you need into how your favorite team is standing up to the competition.

No matter if you are betting against the spread of making an over/under wager, you should realize the importance of a solid defense. For example, if two highly ranked defenses are playing one another you can expect the over/under to be quite low.
