Every season when handicapping football games in any week of the season, it is important to use any tool that will help the sports betting fan profit on a weekly basis. This is even more vital as the season starts to wind down.
The professional handicapper will use every tool that can bring money to the bank and that includes football betting trends. In Week 15 of the football season there are several trends that point out some solid information that every handicapper should have.
On Thursday night football the Cincinnati Bengals battle the Philadelphia Eagles in a must-win for the Bengals if they hope to make the playoffs. Their playoff chances took a hit when the Bengals lost to the Cowboys and the hope is they rebound against the Eagles.
However the trends suggest otherwise. The Bengals are 1-7-3 against the spread (ATS) in their last 11 games following a loss.
The Indianapolis Colts and the Houston Texans play in one of the bigger games of the week and the trends suggest that the Colts have a good chance. The Colts are 8-3-1 ATS in their last 12 road games against a team with a winning home record and the Texans are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games in December. This may not mean the Colts will be a good wager +9.5, but it deserves another look heading into Week 15.
Finally Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos bring a winning streak into the game against the Baltimore Ravens. The streak may or may not end, but the Broncos are 6-16 ATS in their last 22 road games against a team with a winning home record. This trend is a bit watered down since it is Manning’s first year, but they all deserve a good look.
The trends for every week in the NFL are one of the tools that should be used by everyone wagering on football.
