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.
Cowboys (-7.5) vs. Redskins
Dallas has won nine straight, a team record. The Cowboys have an NFL-best 9-1 record but a loss to Washington on Thanksgiving could cut their lead in the NFC East to just one game. This bitter division rivalry will be one of the most watched games in Week 12.
There is a Pro System trend for this game that has gone 138-79 (64%), +51.6 units
Browns vs. Giants (-7)
Josh McCown will start for Cleveland against the Giants resurgent defense. The Browns are winless this season and have set a franchise record for worst start to a season (0-11). The G-Men on the other hand have won five straight and are trying to run down the red-hot Cowboys. The oddsmakers think both team’s streaks will continue.
Jets vs. Patriots (-8)
The Pats are contending for the Super Bowl, the Jets’ season is done. This matchup might not look sexy on paper but Gang Green can throw a monkey wrench in New England’s plans. A win by New York could cut the Patriots’ division lead to one game and knock the team further behind the Raiders for the AFC’s top seed..
Falcons (-4) vs. Cardinals
Atlanta emerges from its bye week in a tight race for the NFC South title. Arizona is below .500 but still in the postseason race. Sunday’s matchup between the Falcons and Cardinals will help to put the playoff picture in focus.
There is a Pro System trend for this game that has gone 141-86 (62%) ATS
Broncos (-3) vs. Chiefs
Kansas City had its five game winning streak snapped by the Buccaneers last week. The Chiefs travel to Mile High for a showdown with the Broncos who are coming off a bye. Both teams are looking up at the Raiders in the division race. A win for Denver would propel them over KC, a loss in primetime could knock the team out of the sixth seed in the playoffs.
Eagles (-3.5) vs. Packers
This is a key game for both teams in the NFC wild card race. Philly is at the bottom of the NFC East and desperately needs a win. The Packers have lost four straight, yet are still in striking distance of the Lions and Vikings in the NFC North. This could be a ‘loser leaves town’ game.
