OTHER TRENDY PICKS
I’m not much of a trend guy. I mean, if a team is 9-1 against the spread the last 10 years in Week 2, does that really mean anything? That said, here’s a few NFL picks against the spread (ATS) based on some trends:
SEAHAWKS -2.5 vs. 49ERS, because Seattle is 18-4 ATS in September home games since 2000 and 19-6 ATS as home favorites since 2007. In the SF-SEA series, the favorite is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings and the home team has won 7 of the last 8 games, including 6-2 ATS.
DOLPHINS +3 at COLTS, because Miami is 15-5 ATS on the road vs. teams with a winning record since 2007 and the underdog is 40-18 ATS in the Dolphins’ last 57 games, including their outright win over the Browns last week.
JAGUARS +6 at RAIDERS, because Oakland is 6-27 ATS at home vs. teams with losing records. Also, the Raiders are 5-18 ATS as a favorite since 2006 and 0-6 ATS in their last 6 games following an ATS win.
But really, God help you if you’re actually betting on the Oakland-Jacksonville game.
