Welcome back to the lab. Every Sunday morning during this NFL season, I'll be blogging the stats and trends that I presented on Barstool Sports Advisors, plus some additional ones that I didn't get to use. These stats are a mixture of ones I've found across various websites, and also some just through my own research from pouring through the data.
Below is my entire cheat sheet I use for Advisors each week. Lines courtesy of the Barstool Sportsbook, subject to change from the time I compiled this.
Indianapolis Colts (2-1, 2-1 ATS) @ Chicago Bears (3-0, 2-1 ATS)
1 PM on CBS
A lot of stats here favor Nick Foles and the Bears. He is basically a savior when he takes over in the middle of season.
-Since 2013, when Nick Foles takes over as a team’s starter in the middle of a season, he is 17-6 ATS. This does not include 2019 when he began the season as a starter and then returned to the starting role after an injury.
-Bears are 11-3-1 ATS as home dogs since 2016
Cleveland Browns (2-1, 1-2 ATS) @ Dallas Cowboys (1-2, 0-3 ATS)
1 PM on FOX
These trends are all over the place for the most part, but most seem to favor the Cowboys because it's extremely rare for the Browns to be good for 3 straight games, especially when hitting the road.
-The Browns are 0-7 ATS in their last 7 road games, losing by an average of 16 PPG
-The Browns are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games following a ATS win.
-Last time Cowboys didn’t cover 4 straight games was 2016
New England Patriots (2-1, 2-1 ATS) @ Kansas City Chiefs (3-0, 2-1 ATS)
4:25 PM on CBS
-Patriots have covered 6 straight as dogs of 7 or more and are 9-2 ATS under Belichick in this position.
And in the department of "Something has to give"
-Chiefs are 8-1-1 ATS in their last 10 games as a favorite.
-New England is 17-6 ATS past 23 games as the underdog.
Buffalo Bills (3-0, 2-1 ATS) @ Las Vegas Raiders (2-1, 2-1 ATS)
4:25 PM on CBS
Good on both sides here. Pick what stats mean more to you.
-The Bills are 12-7-1 as a favorite under Sean McDermott, 63% - best in football
-Under Sean McDermott, Bills unders are 19-8 on the road, second highest mark in football
-In Josh Allen’s road starts, the Bills are 9-3-2 ATS
-The Bills are 1-5-1 ATS in their last 7 out west
-The Raiders are 9-4 ATS in their last 13 games following a straight up loss
-The Raiders are 7-2 ATS as home dogs
Philadelphia Eagles (0-2-1, 0-3 ATS) @ San Francisco 49ers (2-1, 2-1 ATS)
8:20 PM on CBS
The Eagles stink on ice but the 49ers have been surprisingly terrible as big home favorites.
-49ers 0-12-1 ATS since 2013 as home favorites of 6 or more
-Road underdogs are 9-3-1 ATS against Shanahan’s 49ers
