Week 6 NFL Betting Trends

Cleveland is making believers out of fans and bettors alike, but can you trust them with a moneyline bet in Pittsburgh, a place they have won just once in 21 tries?

Some bettors like the Browns at +3.5, but beware their 1-7 ATS in eight recent road games and the fact they have lost 16 straight at Pittsburgh. Other divisional action sees intriguing Week 6 NFL betting trends, including the Washington vs NY Giants matchup where the OVER is 16-5 the past 21 meetings in the Meadowlands.

Baltimore -7.5 at Philadelphia Total 47.5 | Matchup Report

This is the biggest home dog number for Eagles since final week of the 2005 season when they were +7.5 in a meaningless game vs Washington.

The Eagles usually play UNDER at home and usually fail to cover at home on Sundays.

UNDER is 18-6 Philadelphia’s last 24 games at home.

Cincinnati +8 at Indianapolis Total 46.5 at BetRivers Indiana | Matchup Report

Detroit is 3-12 ATS in their last 15 games.

Detroit is 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games on the road.

Washington +3 at NY Giants Total 43 | Matchup Report

Talk about messes, do you back the team which is 4-19 SU in their past 23 games or the team that is 4-20 SU in their past 24 games? This makes the Giants one loss worse than Washington. The UNDER could be the play, historically the UNDER is 16-5 in 21 seasons played here between these teams. Brad Gagnon disagrees by the way and likes this game OVER.

UNDER is 16-5 past 21 meetings here

Washington is 2-9 ATS in their last 11 divisional games

NY Jets +10 at Miami Total 47 | Matchup Report

You’re thinking, ‘Golly how long has it been since the Dolphins were double-digit favorites?’ The answer is Nov. 15, 2009 when they were -10 to Tampa Bay and won 25-23. In fact, Miami failed to cover the past four times in this role and they haven’t covered a double-digit spread since beating the Bears 27-9 way back Dec. 9, 2002. Ricky Williams ran for two scores and Jay Fiedler won as Dolphins QB. Every betting trend imaginable says ‘Fade the Jets,’ even with the Dolphins 1-11 ATS as double-digit chalk since 1992.

Green Bay -2 at Tampa Bay Total 54.5 | Matchup Report

Good luck figuring out why Tampa Bay is 1-12-1 ATS in October games that past three seasons. But what if there’s something to it? It makes about as much sense as the Packers failing to cover their past five Week 6 games.

UNDER in 11-1 Buffalo’s last 12 games as underdog

Arizona -2.5 at Dallas Total 55 | Matchup Report
