TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Betting on the NFL is made much easier with the use of betting trends. Because teams play similar opponents often and face divisional opponents twice per year, the data behind each team can help bettors make the tough decisions.
All trends shouldn’t be taken at face value, but the majority of the time, the NFL betting trends at US sports betting sites play a strong role in helping bettors make money. Week 6 has an early NFL London game, a half-dozen games kicking off at the 1 p.m. EST time slot, four more starting three hours later, and a Sunday Night Football matchup to end the day.
Between every game, the best trend was selected to reflect the upcoming matchup.
Carolina Panthers Vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (NFL London) - 9:30 a.m. EST
NFL London is back with its second installment for the 2019 season. London games can always throw a wrench in the betting trends, as the travel across the pond can influence many factors. Still, bettors should consider taking the over (47 points) in the Panthers and Buccaneers game. In the last six games that both teams have played, both have seen the over hit in four of them and nothing should change for this early game.
Houston Texans Vs. Kansas City Chiefs - 1 p.m. EST
This game is set as a four-point spread in favor of the home team Chiefs. However, this trend focuses on the point total, which is set at 55.5 points. Despite this high number, bettors are recommended to take the over, as Houston has seen the over hit in four of their last five on the road and Kansas City has seen the over hit in nine of their last 13 games.
Philadelphia Eagles Vs. Minnesota Vikings – 1 p.m. EST
In this NFC battle between two 3-2 teams, the Eagles will travel a short distance to take on the Vikings in Minnesota. The Vikings are favored by a field goal, but the betting trends look at the point total again. As bettors who took the under in the last seven Vikings’ games have won six times, and as the Eagles tend to always go under in October (five of their last six), bettors should look to play the under on the 44 points.
Cincinnati Bengals Vs. Baltimore Ravens – 1 p.m. EST
The race for AFC North is up in the air but the Bengals seem to be well behind the leading Ravens. Still, bettors should think about laying their money on the Bengals +11. In Baltimore’s last seven games, they have only covered the spread once. Meanwhile, the Bengals are 4-1 against the spread in their last five against the Ravens.
Seattle Seahawks Vs. Cleveland Browns – 1 p.m. EST
The Browns are the underdogs at home in this contest but by only 1.5 points. Still, bettors looking at the NFL trends should be inclined to ride the Seahawks in this contest. In the last seven games on the road, the Seahawks are 6-1 against the spread. On the flip side, the Browns are 2-5 against the spread in their last seven games at home.
New Orleans Saints Vs. Jacksonville Jaguars – 1 p.m. EST

The Saints have been playing quite well without Drew Brees at the helm. As the Saints, for some reason, are the underdog against Jacksonville, bettors will be looking to take a chance on the underdog Saints. At +105, the Saints are the play here, as the Saints are 16-4 straight up in their last 20, as the Jags are just 4-13 in their last 17 games.
Washington Redskins Vs. Miami Dolphins – 1 p.m. EST
One of these teams will end the day with a win – well maybe not if there is a tie. But still, these two fully-defeated teams have struggled offensively all season. Set at 41 points, bettors who follow NFL betting trends are jamming the under here since the total has gone under in eight of the last dozen games Miami has played (and five of the last six against Washington). As for the Skins, they have paid out bettors who took the under in five of the last seven games when the Skins played a team in the AFC.
San Francisco 49ers Vs. Los Angeles Rams – 4:05 p.m. EST
The Niners are the slight underdog in this matchup, which makes sense since they are 2-8 on the road in their last 10 games. Likewise, the Rams at home have seen much success, going 9-2 over the last 11 games played in LA. With this, bettors should look at taking the Rams’ moneyline (-170), as the team looks to give San Francisco their first loss of the season.
Atlanta Falcons Vs. Arizona Cardinals – 4:05 p.m. EST
There were not many decent trends to follow surround these two teams, however putting two separate ones together may work for some. The Falcons have lost four of their last five but come in as favorites against the Kyler Murray-led Cardinals. Meanwhile, the Cardinals have covered the spread in four of their last six games, indicating those taking action on this game should look at taking Arizona (+2.5) with the points.
Tennessee Titans Vs. Denver Broncos – 4:25 p.m. EST
These two inconsistent teams have been hard to gauge this year yet one NFL betting trend seems to follow both of them: the under. Set at 40 points, seeing the under hit in this game may seem quite difficult, but keep in mind that the total has gone under in six of the last nine games the Titans have played on the road. Likewise, when Denver plays at home, the under has hit in eight of their last nine.
Dallas Cowboys Vs. New York Jets – 4:25 p.m. EST
A parlay opportunity is presented with the Cowboys and Jets game, regarding the moneyline and the total points. Because the Cowboys (-335) are such heavy favorites, look to balance these odds with the under (44.5) as well. The Jets haven’t won any of their last seven games, while the Cowboys are 11-4 in their last 15. Additionally, when the Cowboys play on the road, bettors on the under have won 11 of the last 15. The Jets have followed suit, seeing the under hit in four of their last five.
Pittsburgh Steelers Vs. Los Angeles Chargers – 8:20 p.m. EST
Life is too short to bet on the under in the NFL is a popular quote, but yet another NFL betting trend is leaning against this viral belief. As the Chargers have gone under in four of their last five, and the Steelers have gone under in eight of their 12, all signs point to taking the under again. The point total is set at 41.5 points, which may scare some bettors, but sometimes you have to put your faith in the numbers associated with the NFL betting trends.
