    NFL Trends Week 8 (10/28/15)

    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 36 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.

    Week 8 – Situational Trends

    The last ten teams to start 6-0 went 3-7 against-the-spread in their next game.

    • Games Matching this Criteria: Patriots (-8) vs. Dolphins, Packers (-3) @ Broncos, Bengals (-1.5) @ Steelers and Panthers (-7) vs. Colts.

    Carson Palmer is better than you think…



    Note: Graphic is courtesy of ESPN.

    Palmer not only wins games for the Arizona but he also has been a bettor's best friend. With Palmer as the starter the last two years, the Cardinals are10-3 against-the-spread.

    • Games Matching this Criteria: Cardinals (-5) @ Browns.

    There has never been two teams that started 6-0 play each other. There have been four games where 5-0 teams squared off. The favorite in those games went 2-0-2 against-the-spread.

    • Games Matching this Criteria: Packers (-3) at Broncos.
