    NFL Trends Week 10 (11/11/15)

    There is incredible power in understanding history. Though not predictive in nature, understanding how teams, players, leagues and markets have reacted to various scenarios for over 36 years and more than 9,000 games - as is the case with the information available in the Trend Machine for the NFL - is a tremendous supplement to any analysis of an upcoming matchup.

    Each week we will provide trends for the upcoming NFL games, some will be team specific, others situational – how often a team covers against-the-spread after covering three games in a row.

    Week 10 – Situational Trends

    History says the Patriots, Bengals and Panthers are all in good shape for the playoffs. Since the NFL switched to a 16-game format in 1978, 16 other teams have started 8-0. Of those teams, 12 won at least one playoff game, nine reached the Super Bowl and six won the championship.

    Also, of those 16 teams, 15 won their next game but went just 8-8 against-the-spread.

    • Games Matching this Criteria: Patriots (-7) @ Giants, Bengals (-10.5) vs. Texans and Panthers (-4.5) @ Titans.

    All-time, teams that have won eight games in a row and are favorites of ten or more points in the next game went 11-8 against-the-spread.

    • Games Matching this Criteria: Bengals (-10.5) vs. Texans.

    The last ten teams to lose three straight against-the-spread and then be installed as home favorites the next week went 3-6-1 against-the-spread.

    • Games Matching this Criteria: Packers (-11.5) vs. Lions and Steelers (-4.5) vs. Browns.
