TNF: Surging Lions vs Slumping Packers

What has happened to the Green Bay Packers? After winning six straight to start the NFL campaign the green and gold have dropped four of their last five ahead of their Thursday Night Football clash versus the Detroit Lions in the Motor City. Detroit toppled Green Bay 18-16 in Wisconsin in Week 10—the first time the Lions won at Lambeau Field in 24 years. 

Green Bay is coming off a 17-13 loss to the Chicago Bears on Thanksgiving Day, while the Lions were on the other side of the fence on turkey day thanks to a 45-14 pummelling of the Philadelphia Eagles. Detroit has come out of nowhere to win three in a row after starting the season 1-7.

Home field advantage has been huge when these NFC North rivals have met, as visiting sides are just 1-5 SU and ATS in the last six contests between the clubs.

NFL Week 13 Opening Odds Analysis

And then there was one - and it's not the New England Patriots. Even Nostradamus would have been hard-pressed to accurately predict that the Carolina Panthers would be the lone unbeaten NFL team after 12 weeks.

Next up for the 11-0 Panthers is a road date against NFC South Division rival New Orleans on Sunday. The Panthers opened as seven-point favorites. The last time Carolina was a road favorite against the Saints was 2008 when John Fox was the Panthers coach.

Ravens Have Had Dolphins' Number

Baltimore Ravens Kamar Allen

In the battle between the Baltimore Ravens and the Miami Dolphins, it’s the Ravens who have held a significant upper hand. Baltimore has won and covered in each of their last five meetings with the ‘Fins and will get yet another crack at them Sunday when the two sides square off in the Sunshine State. Miami opened as 4.5-point favorites at most sportsbooks, which won’t inspire much confidence in Dolphins backers. The favored team is 2-6 ATS in the last eight meetings between the clubs.

Shark Bites
  • The Ravens are 2-5 SU and ATS in their last seven games on the road in December.
  • The Ravens are 4-1 ATS in their last five games against the AFC East division.
  • The Dolphins are 0-7 ATS in their last seven games in December.

Baltimore is coming off a miracle victory over the Cleveland Browns in the Week 12 edition of Monday Night Football which saw them block a last-second field goal and return it for a touchdown, escaping Ohio with a 33-27 win while covering the spread in the process.

Miami hasn’t been setting the world on fire on the field and for bettors, going 4-7 SU and ATS this season. They have been marginally better at home, however, posting a 3-4 ATS record at Sun Life Stadium.

Red-Hot Texans Becoming a Great Bet

JJ Watt

Don’t look now, but the Houston Texans have been the hottest team in the NFL over the course of the last month. Thanks to four straight victories over the Titans, Bengals, Jets and Saints the Texans have virtually erased an ugly 1-4 start and have vaulted themselves into the thick of the playoff hunt at 6-5.

<h5>Shark Bites</h5>

<ul class="content-list">
<li>The total has gone OVER in five of the Texans' last seven games after a win.</li>
<li>The Bills are 1-4 SU and ATS in their last five games as favorites.</li>
<li>The Texans are 3-8 SU in their last 11 games in December.</li>
</ul>

The Texans have also been a fantastic bet lately, covering the closing spread in their last four games. Houston travels to Buffalo for a date with the Bills in Week 13 and initially opened as 3-point underdogs at most sportsbooks.

Buffalo hasn’t put up much of a fight against the Texans in recent meetings, dropping three in a row straight up and against the spread in the previous three matchups between the clubs.

Bengals are the NFL's Best Bet

Cincinnati Bengals AJ Green

The Cincinnati Bengals may be getting a bit overshadowed by the likes of the New England Patriots and Carolina Panthers in the conversation of the NFL's best teams, but there’s one area where Cincy reigns supreme: at the betting window. Andy Dalton and company (9-2 SU) have gone 9-1-1 ATS this season – good enough to make them the best bet in the NFL. Next up on the slate for the Bengals is a road matchup with the lowly Cleveland Browns.

Shark Bites
  • The Bengals are 6-2 SU in their last eight games on the road in December.
  • The total has gone UNDER in the Browns' last six games in December.
  • The Browns are 0-5 SU and 1-4 ATS in their last five games at home in December.

Favorites haven’t been producing for their bettors when the pair of AFC North rivals get together, however. Favored teams are just 2-13-1 ATS in the last 16 meetings between the clubs. Cincinnati is also just 2-9-1 ATS in their last 12 games against the Browns when tabbed as chalk.

Bears Have Good Track Record vs Niners

You’ll have to forgive fans of the San Francisco 49ers if they’re living in the past. The 2015 49ers don’t even remotely resemble the Jim Harbaugh days, and this season has seen them sink to the bottom of the NFC West standings at 3-8 SU. The Niners travel to the Windy City in Week 13 to take on the Chicago Bears—a team that’s had their number in recent games.

 

<h5>Shark Bites</h5>

 

<ul class="content-list">

<li> The visiting team is 1-11 SU and 2-10 ATS in its last 12 games in this matchup.</li>

<li>The Bears are 1-8 SU and 2-7 ATS in their last nine games at home in December.</li>

<li>The 49ers are 5-12 ATS in their last 17 games.</li>

</ul>

The Bears are 11-14 ATS in their last 15 games against San Fran. Soldier Field hasn’t exactly been friendly to Chicago, however, as they’ve gone just 1-7 SU in their previous eight home games.

UNDER bettors are loving Chicago lately due to their penchant for participating in a lot of low-scoring affairs. The Bears have gone below the closing total in four of their last five games.

Vikings Remain NFL’s Top UNDER Team

Vikings NFL Football

The Seattle Seahawks have been slow starters in recent seasons and 2015 is no different, but Pete Carroll and company are looking more like their old selves after collecting four wins in their last five games ahead of Week 13’s road tilt with the Minnesota Vikings. 

The ‘Hawks were one of the worst bets in the league in the opening two months of the season but have since rebounded, covering the spread against both the 49ers and Steelers in the last two weeks.

<h5>Shark Bites</h5>

<ul class="content-list">
<li>The Vikings are 3-7 SU and ATS in their last 10 games after winning as an underdog.</li>
<li>The total has gone UNDER in nine of the Seahawks' last 10 games in December.</li>
<li>The total has gone UNDER in the Seahawks' last four games on the road against the Vikings.</li>
</ul>

For the first time in quite a while the Vikings sit atop of the NFC North at 8-3 SU thanks to the implosion of their rivals in Green Bay. The Vikes have also been the league’s top UNDER team, as the OVER/UNDER has gone 1-9-1 this season.

Dogs Dominating Cardinals-Rams Games

The Arizona Cardinals and St. Louis Rams have gone in different directions this season, as the Cards are sitting perched atop of the NFC West at 9-2 SU while the Rams are lingering near the basement at 4-7. The two clubs will renew acquaintances at the Edward Jones Dome in Week 13.

<h5>Shark Bites</h5>

<ul class="content-list">
<li>The Rams are 13-33-1 SU in their last 47 games against their division.</li>
<li>The total has gone OVER in nine of the Cardinals' last 12 games.</li>
<li>The Cardinals are 14-5 ATS in their last 19 games after an ATS loss.</li>
</ul>

Favored teams have simply not been coming through for their backers when the Cardinals and Rams have met. In the last eight meetings between the two, underdogs have gone 6-2 ATS.

The Rams have been a poor spread bet this season (4-6-1) but they have been solid for UNDER bettors, as the OVER/UNDER has gone 3-8 in Rams games so far this season.

Battle of New York: Giants vs Jets

New York Giants NFL

A battle of New York football teams that’s actually played in New Jersey is on the docket for Week 13 NFL action as the Giants are the “home team” at MetLife Stadium versus the Jets. The Jets have been atrocious in this matchup in recent seasons, going 0-5 SU and 0-4-1 ATS in their last five against the G-Men.

<h5>Shark Bites</h5>

<ul class="content-list">
<li>The Giants are 4-0 SU and ATS in their last four games after losing as favorite.</li>
<li>The Jets are 5-1-1 ATS in their last seven games after an ATS win.</li>
<li>The total has gone OVER in six of the Jets' last seven games.</li>
</ul>

It isn’t just the Giants who have been giving the J-E-T-S fits, however.  The Jets are 4-17 SU in their previous 21 games against NFC East opponents. Oddsmakers are expecting this to be a close one, evidenced by the Jets opening as 1-point favorites for the tilt. 

The Jets have been kind to bettors banking on high-scoring games as of late, as the OVER has paid out on six of the last seven times they’ve taken the field.
