NFL WEEK 16 TRENDS
Divisional matchups are taking over the NFL lineup for the next 13 days with 11 scheduled for Week 16, followed by the customary full slate in Week 17 as we close out the regular season.
Here is a look at some of early Week 16 NFL odds with trends that are helping shape the line.
WEEK TREND SETTER
The Patriots are 16.5-point faves against the Jets following their big win at Denver and after Seattle’s win over Los Angeles last week, huge home faves have now won five-straight games ATS since 2014. Their straight-up record since 2009 is 19-0, so this is shaping up like another domination game for Tom Brady and his crew.
Green Bay (-7, O/U 43.5) hosts Minnesota in a revenge game and the Vikings’ record their last nine times off a big blowout loss is 1 over and 8 unders. Check the weather in this one. Frigid temperatures don’t throw Green Bay off but wind might, and Sam Bradford’s arm looked pretty weak earlier this year against the wind at Philly.
Seattle (-7.5, O/U 44) is a heavy fave over Arizona and we should probably expect more than the 12 total points we saw in the first meeting, but how much more? The 15-year record for divisional home teams off a divisional home game like the Hawks is 64-percent to the “Under” and thanks to a 10-4 O/U record between these teams in the second meeting, we’re getting pretty decent number here for a potential under play.
