NFL WEEK 13 TRENDS
Here is a look at some of early Week 13 NFL odds with trends that are helping shape the line.
If the season ended today the AFC divisional leaders would be New England (9-2), Oakland (9-2), Baltimore (6-5) and Houston (6-5). Each of the Wild Card teams, Kansas City (8-3) and Miami (7-4) has a better record than the North and South front runners and the first loser is those Denver Broncos, thanks to their choke job Sunday night against the Chiefs.
Denver (-5 and 41.5) is at Jacksonville this week and they’ll have to wait until Week 16 for another shot at the West. This line opened at -4.5 and 43 so early money is coming in on the fave and the under. Perhaps we should expect the Broncos to bounce back with another solid effort on defense but is this line going too far?
The past three road games for Denver ended as a 2-point win, a 10-point loss and a 8-point loss. Jacksonville might be up for this chance to take down the defending Super Bowl champ but this time of year is when you start worrying about lame duck coaches. Gus Bradley is on the hot seat after this letdown year and December home dogs that had already secured a losing record were just 6-13-1 ATS last year. Getting between +3 and +7, the dogs went 0-12 SU and 2-9-1 ATS.
Miami is at Baltimore (-3.5 and O/U 41.5) and this is probably the highest total we’ll see all week for this contest. It opened with a hook on the key number thanks to Miami’s 31-24 win over San Fran but think of where that game was played and how bad the Niners are on defense. The Fish and Ravens only average 22.6 and 19.8 points respectively and when teams like this meet off a high scoring affair, the record is 7 overs, 21 unders and 3 pushes since 2013. Also note that small home faves like the Ravens have a 65-percent ATS record in this profile the past 10 years (22-12-2 ATS).
One more line to keep an eye one is Kansas City at Atlanta (-4 and O/U 49). The Chiefs and their dink and dunk offense rank 29th in yards per completion while the Falcons lead the league at 12.7 YPC. KC has a much better defense than the Falcs and getting more than a field goal, the long-term value in this spot has clearly been on road squad.
