    ­­NFL Wild Card Weekend betting trends utilizing the Trend Machine.



    There is incredible power in understanding history. Though not predictive in nature, understanding how teams, players, leagues and markets have reacted to various scenarios for over 35 years and more than 9,000 games - as is the case with the information available in the Trend Machine for the NFL - is a tremendous supplement to any analysis of an upcoming matchup.

    Each week we will provide trends for the upcoming NFL games, some will be team specific, others situational – how often a team covers against-the-spread after covering three games in a row.

    Additional Notes

    All-time, there have only been six playoff games featuring a team with seven wins. Five occurred in the 1983 playoffs when the regular season was shortened to nine games due to a strike, the other was in 2011 when the Seahawks won the NFC West with a 7-9 record.

    All-time, the team with seven wins has a 4-2 straight-up record. The 2011 Seahawks, the only other team with a true losing record to make the playoffs, won its Wild Card round game as well.

    The last time all four home teams on Wild Card Weekend were the favorites – 2007.
