Vegas owned this team. There was no consistent pattern up and down the schedule of beating the spread or, for that matter, not beating the spread. Their wins and losses were distributed evenly as the season drove on, a relative indicator that this team was neither overrated nor underrated by those who rate.

They were just bad.
