What’s a trap game? 

A “trap” game is a game that looks too good to be true. It looks so easy to bet that you want to run to your betting website and quickly put in the wager. That bet usually loses and it leaves the player confused and searching for answers. Last week we pointed out the “trap game” and it paid off if you bet the other way.


Here is the complete 2022 NFL odds Week 5

The Trap Game

This week there are several games that look too good to be true. Like the Packers against the Giants or the Jaguars over the Texans, but the one line that stands out to me is in a different game.

The 49ers just beat up the Rams and now they are small -4 favorites against the Carolina Panthers. Baker Mayfield and the Panthers look miserable this year and everyone will run to bet on San Francisco. Be careful. The 49ers are on a short week and they are coming off a big win against the Rams. This is a letdown spot and the point-spread is low for a reason. This is the trap game and maybe a game you want to avoid this week.
