Who doesn’t like to earn money? Everybody does. This is why we can all use some friendly betting tips from time to time. To that end, if you are only looking to place direct bets, there is a new trend in NFL betting that has been incredibly positive for some people.
Bet in favor of teams that No cover the week before by taking on teams that did Last week’s cover has a 39-14-1 record in 2021. I know the video says 38-14-1, but the Bears-Steelers game also fell into this category, and anyone who bet on the Bears (+ 7) got the money. This trend was 7-0 in Week 2, 6-3 in Week 3, 7-3, 5-2-1, 3-3, 1-2, 3-0 and finally 7-0 last week. If you deposited $ 100 into each of these games during the season, it would be $ 2,500 richer minus the reservation fees and specific lines for each game. Basically, you’d be sitting pretty.
In Week 9, the seven games that would have fallen under this trend in question were Jacksonville (+14.5) versus Buffalo, Atlanta (+5.5) versus New Orleans, Los Angeles Chargers (-1.5) versus Philadelphia, Kansas City (-1) against Green Bay, Arizona (+5.5) against San Francisco, Indianapolis (-10) against the New York Jets and Chicago (+7) against Pittsburgh. Clearly, not every week is going to turn out this way. In weeks 6 and 7, the trend was a combined 4-5, but that seems to be just a small bump in the road as the trend has gone 10-0 since then.
So what does this trend make sense? I guess teams that underperform tend to bounce back in an effort to show the world that the previous week was just a fluke, while teams that exceeded expectations don’t feel the same pressure to succeed. However, that is just a theory.
However, the biggest question everyone has now is what games will fall under these circumstances next week? Are here:
- Las Vegas Raiders (+2.5) v. Kansas city chiefs
- Philadelphia Eagles (+2.5) @ Denver Broncos
- New Orleans Saints (+3) @ Tennessee Titans
- Carolina Panthers (+10) @ Arizona Cardinals
- Dallas Cowboys (-9.5) v. Atlanta Falcons
- Baltimore Ravens (-7) @ Miami Dolphins
Looking at these games, I don’t hate most of them. The only two that I really don’t like very much are the Saints (+3) and the Panthers (+10), but if I’m honest I can see both of them happen. However, the rest seem pretty solid, especially the Ravens (-7) in Miami. The Dolphins are a garbage man who couldn’t beat the Texans by more than one possession. The Ravens shouldn’t have a problem getting them out of the water. Look for a great Devonta Freeman game in that one.
While you can play full parlay in these six games, I would suggest betting each game individually if you are going to do so. Sure, the last two weeks, the trend has been perfect, but it has been imperfect five times out of eight. You will make less money than if the parlay came, but the risk is much lower with a solid probability of making money. Of course, as is the case with everything I call attention to, this trend is sure to fail miserably this weekend, isn’t it always?
