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.
Packers (-6.5) vs. Vikings
Aaron Rodgers said the Packers were going to run the table. Four wins later Green Bay has a chance to win the division after starting 4-6. The Vikings will become just the sixth team that was the league’s last undefeated squad to miss the playoffs.
Patriots (-16.5) vs. Jets
New England is a massive favorite over the Jets. If this line holds it will be the biggest spread since 2015. Some books have the Pats favored by 17 points, which would be the largest NFL spread since 2013.
