    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 7 – Situational Trends

    All-time, teams that start 5-0 and are favorites of 9 or more points in the next game are a perfect 20-0 straight-up and 12-8 (60%) against-the-spread.

    • Games Matching this Criteria: Patriots (-9) vs. Jets.

    All-time, teams that have lost five games in a row and are home underdogs are 58-44 (57%) against-the-spread.

    • Games Matching this Criteria: Chiefs (+2) vs. Steelers.
