NFL Pre and Post Bye Week Stats By Team and Overall

With the NFL bye weeks underway, we wanted to post some interesting stats regarding individual team and overall performance for the weeks leading into, and after a bye week.

At the individual team level, we feel it is important to keep in mind that coaching continuity can play a major role in how well these stats hold up over time.

At the detail team level, which you find in the spreadsheet below, the data is broken down by Favorite and Underdog, as well as by Home and Away.

Overview of Total By Team

The overall stat data shown in the graphic below offers some interesting observations.

Week Leading Into the Bye

  • There is no clear advantage to playing a Favorite or Underdog
  • There is an advantage to playing the Over, especially in Conference and Non-Conference Games

Week After a Bye

  • There is significant advantage to playing the Favorite, regardless if that Favorite was the team coming of the Bye or not
  • The only Total advantage is playing the Over in Non-Conference Games
