Each week there are NFL games that stand out above others on the betting board. Whether it be down to the matchups or odds, not all games are created equal. With that in mind, let's take a look at a trio of games with betting stats that stand out heading into Week 16
Here are three wild betting trends for Week 16. All odds are provided by WynnBET Sportsbook.
Washington vs Cowboys -10.5 | Over/Under 47
The Cowboys are 11-1 ATS in their last 12 games against the NFC East.
Despite some midseason stumbles, the Dallas Cowboys have dominated the NFC East standings from wire to wire and currently hold a three-game lead over the second-place Philadelphia Eagles. A major reason for this has been the Cowboys directly dominating their NFC East rivals whenever they go head to head. In fact, the Cowboys have failed to cover just once in the last 12 games they have played in the division. What’s more, Washington is just 2-3 ATS as an underdog on the road and is on an 0-2 ATS losing streak.
Bills vs Patriots -2 | Over/Under 43.5
The OVER is 7-0 in the Bills’ last seven games as underdogs
The Bills and Patriots have a very important game this weekend that will go a long way to decide which of these two squads wins the AFC East. While the Bills were Super Bowl favorites a few weeks back, they have lost three of their last five and taken a big step back from being title favorites. Due to this, the Bills head into this game as two-point underdogs. This brings to light an interesting trend that the Bills are an OVER machine when they are underdogs. Pretty much one of two things happens in these games. Either they pull off an upset win as they did over the Chiefs, or allow the favorites to put up big numbers.
This is an interesting situation to put this stat to use because the Bills held New England to just 10 points a few weeks back as three-point favorites.
Browns vs Packers -7.5 | Over/Under 46
The Packers are 6-0 ATS at Lambeau Field
One of the biggest reasons that the Packers were the first and only team to clinch a playoff spot this season through 15 weeks has been their dominance at home. Not only have they yet to lose a game at Lambeau this year, but they are also a perfect 6-0 against the spread. Even away from home, they are one of the best teams against the spread overall with an 11-3 record. As an away underdog the Browns are 2-3 ATS on the road. After a drama-filled short week, I don't think Cleveland will challenge Green Bay too much here.
