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.
Chiefs (-5) vs. Eagles
Kansas City had its way with the defending champions beating New England 42-27 last Thursday. As underdogs of 8-points, the Chiefs easily covered the spread in the season opener.
Seahawks (-14) vs. 49ers
Seattle is the favorite to win the NFC West. After a disappointing first game on the road against Green Bay the Seahawks will look to right the ship against the dreadful Niners. However, big favorites against division opponents have been bad bets.
Saints vs. Patriots (-7)
Two teams in need of a win. Neither can afford to start the season 0-2. The oddsmakers like New England’s chances of winning on the road but can the Saints play spoiler and hand the reigning champions a second consecutive loss?
Week 2: Saints vs. Patriots
This Pro System is 121-78 (60.8%) ATS since 2003
Colts vs. Cardinals (-7.5)
Let’s take advantage of recency bias. Indy looked terrible against Los Angeles in Week 1. The Colts will be without Andrew Luck once again and are now big underdogs at home. Less than 25% of spread bets are on the home team.
Falcons (-2.5) vs. Packers
The winner of this game becomes the clear favorite in the NFC. Atlanta opened as field goal favorites but the majority of bets are on Green Bay after the Packers easily beat Seattle.
