The trends are so one-sided in Week 3 that oddsmakers had to post huge spreads and do other strange things, like make the Detroit Lions road favorites.
15-0 SU. That’s the Patriots' streak against the Bills. They’re also 10-1 SU in their past 11 trips to Ralph Wilson Stadium and dominate them against the spread for good measure. Result? New England -9 against a 2-0 Bills team that has scored 79 points in two games.
16-1 SU. That’s the Vikings' streak in their past 17 home games against the Lions. But 2-0 Detroit turned the tables on their hosts this time, opening as 4-point road chalk. For betting fans, this is just the fourth time since 2005 that the Lions have been favored on the road. And in keeping with Lion tradition, they lost the other three.

1-11 ATS. That’s Cincinnati’s record the past 12 times they have been favored, which they are against the 49ers Sunday. Think it’s any different at home for Cincy? A bit. They are 2-12 ATS the last 14 home games as chalk.
0-8 SU, 1-7 ATS. That’s the Cardinals in their past eight road games. They are favored by 3 points at Seattle and that’s another ugly trend – they are 2-8 ATS the past 10 times in that role.
18-1 SU. That was Indianapolis’ streak against AFC North teams before last week’s loss to the Browns. As everyone knows, the Colts are not the same minus Peyton Manning, which accounts for the huge 11-point road spread for the Steelers.
NFL trends are tricky numbers. Naysayers hate them and say it’s just a historical fluke. Believers follow them and scratch beneath the surface to see what merit lies under them. Others don’t take any chance, backing off a bet if there is a whopping trend working against their team.
