    Public dogs

    Public dog - An underdog the public strongly backs, as opposed to their normal method of backing the favorite.

    Can anyone remember a public underdog that has covered this season? Offhand, I can think of only a few:

    Giants +5.5-7 @ Chargers - Only remember this because I had the Chargers big. Chargers were 0-2, Giants 2-0.
    Bengals +2.5-3 @ Jaguars - When the Bengals were undefeated and the Jags were 2-2.
    Chiefs +5.5 @ Chargers - Chiefs were 5-2, Chargers 3-4
    Bears +4-6 @ Steelers - Bears were on long winning streak, Steelers were struggling.
    Seahawks +4-5.5 @ Packers - How could a 13-3 team be an underdog to a 3-13 team? Oh.
    Bears +3-4 @ Vikings - Same concept.
    Patriots +3 @ Broncos - Patriots as an underdog in the playoffs - as IMGV has been mentioning, something like 72% of the public was on them.

    I know there were more, and surely some covered, but these were the ones that I remembered. Hopefully this trend continues tomorrow, as the public, who saw the Panthers 23-0 win last week, seems to have forgotten about the Bears, and is staunchly behind Carolina.

    Haha. I'm honestly not an Auburn fan. My idiot friend saved that picture on my computer, and I made it my avatar the other day when I bet on Auburn against Alabama - oops.
    I keep wanting to change it, but I always crack up when I look at it.
