NFL trends for Week 3
I came across a few interesting trends via PredictionMachine.com (Twitter: @predictmachine).
One that jumped
out was a look at potential survivor-pool picks. The pools are becoming more and more popular. I won one last year, believe it or not, but lasted exactly one full week this year when the Saints broke my craigslist cialis sting
heart with a lousy effort in Cleveland last week.
Teams favored by at least 14 points, according to the machine, are 206-27 (88 percent) lifetime. The Patriots meet that criteria as a two-touchdown favorite against Oakland Sunday.
Another interesting tidbit: Teams that lost by at least 20 points AND are an underdog the next week are 384-285-21 against the spread (57 percent). The Steelers (plus 3.5 at the Panthers), Vikings (plus 9.5 at Saints) and Jags (plus 6.5 vs. Colts) meet that criteria.
Pick Seattle if you are big on trends. Russell Wilson is 6-0 against the spread at home when Seattle is favored by seven or fewer. The Seahawks are a 4.5-point pick over visiting Denver.
Here’s one trend that held up. Atlanta was 16-1 straight up (straight up means viagra alternative gnc< you don't consider the point spread) in the Matt Ryan Era as at least a seven-point favorite at home. Make it 17-1 with tonight's romp of Tampa Bay.
In the Tony Romo Era, Dallas is 14-20-1 as a road favorite. The Cowboys are walgreens viagra< 2.5-point faves at St. Louis.
The Chiefs (plus 5 at Miami) healthymaleviagra-formen< are 24-41-1 against the spread (36 percent) vs. AFC East teams. Yet in the last 10 years, the Dolphins are just 6-23 against the spread (21 percent) as home favorites of 3 or more points.
