NFL Week 7 Betting Trends

After winning the Panic Bowl over Dallas last week, can the Minnesota Vikings keep it going this week when Brett Favre makes another trip back to Green Bay? What say you, NFL betting trends?

Unfortunately for Vikings fans, the trends say no. Minnesota has been dreadful on the road all season and they have lost six in a row away from home, during which time they're 2-4 ATS. Oddly enough the last road game the Vikings won was last season's trip to Green Bay.

In their last 10 trips to Lambeau Field however, the Vikes are a money-making 8-2 against the spread.

The injury-riddled Packers are coming off an upset home loss to Miami, but before that loss they had reeled off six wins in a row at home while going 4-1-1 ATS. Green Bay has lost only three times in their last 12 games at home, but they're only 6-5-1 ATS over that span.

According to the trends on both sides, the Packers should win Sunday, but covering the spread may be difficult.

The biggest favorite right now for this week are the Baltimore Ravens as 12-point home favorites versus Buffalo. Considering how the favorites have performed this season bettors may be wary of wagering on such a big favorite, but according to the trends Baltimore looks pretty safe.

The Bills can't win at all this season, but looking back further their road record is just as awful. Buffalo has gone 1-5 SU in their last six on the road with a 3-3 ATS record. In their last 11 games as a double-digit underdog the Bills are 1-10 SU and 5-6 ATS.

Throw in the Ravens' record in their last 17 games as a double-digit favorite - 17-0 SU and 11-6 ATS - and the Bills appear to be headed for a big loss on Sunday.

While the heavily-favored Ravens look like almost a sure thing for bettors this week, the other double-digit favorite on the weekend schedule, the Saints, are a team you may want to avoid.

New Orleans hosts Cleveland this weekend and they opened as an 11.5-point favorite. Even with their high-powered offense in past seasons the Saints have been murder on bankrolls as a big favorite. In their last seven games as a double-digit favorite the Saints are a lame 1-6 ATS. In their past 11 regular season games, they have covered just a single spread.

The Browns, on the other hand, have been gold as a double-digit underdog with a 4-1 ATS mark in their last five. Save your money and take the Browns as an ATS upset.
