There is incredible power in understanding how teams, players, leagues and markets have reacted to various scenarios. Using Bet Labs massive database of proprietary sports betting information you can easily build and explore data-driven betting systems.
Each week we will provide a betting trend for every NFL game. Some trends will be team specific and others situational. Our database goes back to 2003, the trends include all games in that time frame unless otherwise mentioned.
Ravens (-10) vs. Browns
I can already hear people complaining about the Browns playing in a primetime game but this matchup has a chance to be entertaining. The last three times these two teams have played the games have been bonkers.
- Week 2 2016: Cleveland blows 20-0 lead and loses 25-20.
- Week 12 2015: Ravens block Browns game winning field goal attempt and return it for a touchdown, Baltimore wins 33-27.
- Week 5 2015: Cleveland edges Baltimore 33-30 in overtime, that is just the second win for the Browns in their last 21 games.
This game features a Pro System trend that is 102-57 ATS, +39.1 units.
Saints (-1.5) vs. Broncos
Strength on strength, the Saints passing attack against the Broncos defense. That matchup won’t determine the game. Instead, can Trevor Siemian move the ball against a porous Saints defense or will New Orleans, after allowing 486 yards of offense to the 49ers, contain the Broncos?
Steelers (-2) vs. Cowboys
Winners of seven straight, Dallas is white-hot coming into Week 10. Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott have been revelations for the Cowboys. Pittsburgh on the other hand has struggled. The Steelers have lost three straight but Ben Roethlisberger will look to right the ship one more week removed from knee surgery.
Redskins (-3) vs. Vikings
Minnesota has lost three straight but the Vikings are somehow still in first place in the NFC North. The offense is inept but the defense can keep the team in games. Washington is coming off a bye after tying in London. Both teams desperately need a win.
This game features a Pro System trend that is 68-38 ATS, +26.3 units.
Patriots (-7.5) vs. Seahawks
Seattle earned a nice victory over Buffalo on Monday night. The Seahawks’ offense looked rejuvenated with a healthy Russell Wilson. However, the Seahawks might be catching New England at the wrong time. The Pats have been rolling since Tom Brady returned from his suspension and the team is coming off a bye. With more than ten days to prepare, Bill Belichick is 14-7 ATS. New England is a big favorite, can Seattle keep the game close or will it be another easy win for Brady and crew?
Giants (-2.5) vs. Bengals
The Giants and Bengals are within arms-reach of first place in their respective divisions. Though these teams are trending in opposite directions. New York hasn’t lost in a month and Cincinnati has only one win in that time frame.
