If you don't think injury situations and lack of team motivation affect NFL betting odds, you are sadly mistaken.
But not all teams react to being out of playoff contention the same way, just like a key injury may not be significant if the team's depth chart cam handle the loss.
Week 15 of the NFL season saw favorites go 10-6 ATS. The Week 16 betting trends feature plenty more 100 per cent streaks and trends.
The Atlanta Falcons lit up the Giants last week and are back on short rest against a Lions team they have dominated over the years. The Falcons are 9-3 ATS in their past 12 games against Detroit, a team that doesn't bite very hard as an underdog, as their 3-7-1 ATS run in this situation proves.
Cleveland has never beaten Denver, and they probably won't this week as 14-point underdogs. But the Browns are very tough on the road and very tough as a big underdog.
And really, what motivation does Denver have to blow out the Browns? Before you bet on Peyton Manning, check out the Broncos record as a favorite of 8 points or more, its terrible!
The Patriots run of OVERs continued last week and bettors have now gone 11-1 if they bet OVER on the last dozen New England games. They face a Jaguars team that has been dreadful as an underdog and has lost 8 of 9 career meetings with the Pats.
The Packers have won seven in a row as a favorite and they lay two TDs against Tennessee, a team coming off a Monday Night upset of the Jets. Of note, the Titans have beaten Green Bay three straight.
The Steelers and Redskins also maintain multiple positive trends in their battles against the Bengals and Eagles respectively.
