I’ve mentioned John Hussey on the referee report plenty of times on the NFL Referee Report. This week, Hussey is assigned to officiate the NFC East matchup between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Dallas Cowboys. Despite Hussey being a favorable official to the home teams, the Eagles are 6-0 ATS in games officiated by John Hussey.
Home teams are 6-4 SU and 6-3-1 ATS this season. However, I can’t ignore the ATS record of the Eagles when Hussey is officiating their games. This week, the Eagles are catching 3.5 points on the road in Dallas!
