    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 13 – Situational Trends

    The battle for New York (the game actually takes place in New Jersey) commences Sunday afternoon when the Jets and Giants square off in the Meadowlands. All-time in the series, the favorite is 3-7 against-the-spread.

    • Games Matching this Criteria: Jets (-2) at Giants.

    Since 2002, when the NFL expanded to 32 teams, home underdogs of a touchdown or greater are 133-97-3 (58%) against-the-spread.

    • Games Matching this Criteria: Saints (+7) vs. Panthers and Browns (+9.5) vs. Bengals.

    All-time, teams that have won five games in a row and then are instilled as road favorites the next week have gone 44-55-1 (44%) against-the-spread.

    • Games Matching this Criteria: Cardinals (-5.5) at Rams and Chiefs (-3) at Raiders.
