Monday Night Mania
There are two teams which are considered Kings of Monday night games - the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Seattle Seahawks. Still, there are also teams with the worse stats on this day: the Washington Redskins, the Miami Dolphins, the Cincinnati Bengals, the Los Angeles Rams.
On Sunday Prime time games, you can also see the huge difference between home and away teams. The Seattle Seahawks are not only the best Monday night team. Sunday is also their day. They even won away games having been outsiders of the match.
Is There A Monday Night Hangover?
Many bettors make wagers using one popular theory. On Sunday games they bet against the teams who played on Monday. But is this theory worth using?

What is more, there are teams who are better or worse in that Monday-Sunday games than other clubs. The Chiefs, the Patriots, the New Orleans Saints are the best picks here while the Dallas Cowboys and the Carolina Panthers often lose.
