NFL Week 15 Betting Trends, Stats, Notes: Action Network Betting Primer article feature image

With four weeks to go in the regular season, the sprint for the playoffs is on.

Let’s look at the slate with the betting trends, stats and notes you need to know. Welcome to Week 15 of Action Network’s NFL betting primer.

All data, stats and trends are updated as of Sunday, Dec. 18, 12 p.m. ET.


1. Is The Cliff Near?

Tom Brady and the Buccaneers are listed as a home underdog vs. the Bengals this week. Brady is 8-3 SU and 10-1 ATS as a home dog in his career. His only ATS loss? In 2005 vs. Peyton Manning.

Brady is 3-9-1 ATS this season, his worst ATS start to a season in his career.

2. Hot in Cincinnati

The Bengals are hot.

  • Burrow is 17-3 ATS in his past 19 starts.
  • Bengals are 18-3 ATS in their past 21 games.
  • Bengals have won and covered five straight games – first time they’ve done that since 2011.

3. None For The Money

Welcome back to primetime, Mr. Jones. Daniel Jones is 0-9 SU and 4-5 ATS in primetime in his career.

Jones is the only QB (min. 4 starts) to be winless in primetime over the past 20 years.

4. Is It A Sign?

Cowboys can go over their preseason win total (10) with a win vs. Jaguars. Cowboys went over last season, too. Dallas hasn’t gone over their win total in consecutive years since 1994-95.

1995 was the last time the Dallas Cowboys won a Super Bowl.

Dating back to 1999, the Cowboys are 8-15 to the under on their preseason win total.

+ Kyle Shanahan has won four straight NFC West games SU and six straight ATS.

49ers beat the Seahawks earlier this season. Shanahan has never beaten Seattle in two straight games SU or ATS.

+ Shanahan is 14-26-1 ATS vs. teams that allow 24 PPG or more and 37-16 ATS vs. teams who allow under 24 PPG for the season.

+ Shanahan on short rest with 49ers: 10-5 SU and 8-6-1 ATS, including 5-1 SU/ATS in his past six games on short rest.

+ That first road game off a long homestand can be tough for favorites. Teams to play at least three straight home games before playing on the road as a favorite in their next game are 24-40-1 ATS (37.5%) over the past 20 years.

+ Shanahan likes to stay west. With the 49ers, he is 20-11 SU, 19-11-1 ATS when San Francisco plays in the Pacific Time Zone after playing in the PST in their previous game as well.

+ 49ers were 2-9-1 ATS as a favorite vs. the NFC West under Shanahan entering this season. This year, they are 3-0 ATS in this spot.

+ The 49ers defense has outscored their opponents 80-14 in second halves of their past six games.

+ The 49ers are 42-19 straight up and 35-25-1 against the spread with Jimmy Garoppolo as quarterback. With all other quarterbacks in that span? They are 10-29 SU and 17-22 ATS.

+ 49ers defensive ranks:

  • Points Per Game       1st
  • Yards Per Game        1st
  • Points Per Play          1st
  • Yards Per Rush         1st
  • Rush YPG                    1st


+ Pete Carroll is 10-2 SU and 8-2-2 ATS when playing on a Thursday as coach of the Seahawks, but has actually only covered once in this spot since 2017.

On short rest since 2019, Carroll is just 3-7 ATS

+ Carroll is 8-3 SU and 6-5 ATS vs. Shanahan, including 4-1 SU at home.

In both of their primetime matchups, the road team won.

+ The Seahawks were 8.5-point underdogs in Week 2 at the 49ers and lost 27-7. That matched Seattle’s largest spread ever against the 49ers (also +8.5 back in 2002).

Now, the 49ers are just -3 in Seattle for their second game.

+ Seahawks have the largest margin to the over of any team in the NFL. Their games are going over the total by 6.4 PPG.

+ Seahawks are 80-1 to win it all, their longest odds since being 100-1 back in Week 8.

+ Geno Smith is 11-7 ATS in his past 18 starts dating back to 2016.

+ This is Geno Smith’s first 4-game ATS losing streak since 2014 (25 starts since). Geno has never lost 5 in a row ATS in 47 career starts.

+ Since 2011, Seahawks are 24-10-2 ATS at home after a SU loss (1-2 ATS this season).

  • 2nd-best of any team in that span. The most profitable? Vikings, who are 30-14-2 ATS.
  • Pete Carroll is 27-13-1 ATS at home off a SU loss and 7-1 SU and 6-1-1 ATS at home off a SU loss on short rest.

+ In Thursday divisional games in November or later, the under is 45-32-3 (58.4%) over the past 20 years.

This is the 6th such game this season, none of the previous six teams scored 30 pts or more.


Colts at Vikings

6-6-1 ATS
10-3 SU
68-66-2 ATS
70-64-2 SU
32-34-1 ATS
41-26 SU


Playoff Scenario:

IND eliminated == IND L + TEN W +  NYJ W or IND L + TEN W +  NE W

+ Matt Ryan has excelled on short rest in his career (20-9 ATS), 2nd-best ATS over the past 20 years (behind Philip Rivers) and when he’s on full rest (7 days) or more, he’s just 91-104-4 ATS in his career.

+ Colts are 2-11 against the first-half spread this season and are 2-13 in their past 15 first halves ATS dating back to last year. They are also 10-3 to the first-half under, 2nd-best of any team in the NFL.

In the second half this season, the Colts are 9-4 2H ATS, too.

+ Colts 9-4 to the under this season – Colts under 14 of past 18 games.

  • Colts are 6-7 on a 6-point teaser this season, the worst record of any team in the NFL.

+ In the first half, the under is 10-3 in the Colts 13 games this season, 2nd-best 1H under win percentage this season.

+ Ryan hasn’t had a lot of success vs. good teams. He is 6-12-1 ATS vs. teams above .500 SU since 2020, 2nd-least profitable QB in the NFL ahead of just Matthew Stafford.

He’s 3-8-1 ATS in his past 11 starts vs. above .500 SU teams



Playoff Scenario:

MIN NFC N == MIN W or DET L

+ The Vikings are now 10-3 with a negative point differential (-1 pt diff)

9-0 SU in one-score games

+ Cousins with Vikings: 38-38-2 ATS, 30-28 ATS with Washington.

1p ET or earlier: 47-35-2 ATS

4p ET or later: 21-31 ATS

+ Kirk Cousins has played at home off a SU loss six times since the start of last season and the Vikings are 6-0 SU and 4-2 ATS.

+ Since 2015, Vikings are 19-6 ATS at home after a SU loss, most profitable team in the NFL.

+ With their victory over the Jets in Week 13, the Vikings have won 12 consecutive games as a favorite, dating back to last season. That is the longest current streak in the NFL.

Vikings last loss as a favorite? December 5, 2021 vs. Lions

+ The Vikings, at least as far as bettors are concerned, have not been able to take advantage of bad offenses this season. They are 3-0 SU and 0-2-1 ATS vs. teams scoring fewer than 20 PPG this year. Vikings were 4-1 ATS in that spot between 2020 and 2021.

+ In December or later, it has been profitable to back good teams (66%+ win pct) that have struggled to cover the spread (50% or less ATS win pct) as they have gone 104-78-3 ATS (57.1%) in the past 20 years.

Lead NFL Receiving Yards Battle:

  • Justin Jefferson: 1,500 (N/A now; +150 last week, +800 open)
  • Tyreek Hill: 1,460 (N/A now; -120 last week, 18-1 open)

Offensive POY Battle:

  • Justin Jefferson: +140
  • Jalen Hurts: +275
  • Tyreek Hill: +300

The Vikings have a 76% win percentage with a negative point differential. Over the past 20 years, they are only the third team to play a game in December or later with a 70%+ win percentage and a negative point differential

  • 2022 Vikings
  • 2020 Browns — Lost in Divisional Round
  • 2004 Falcons — Lost in Conference Championship

+ The Ravens are 10-4 ATS in their past 14 games vs. Browns dating back to 2015 and Baltimore is 6-1-1 in its past eight road games in Cleveland.

+ For the Ravens, it’s all about motivation. After coming off facing a divisional opponent, as long as they don’t win by double-digits, they are 39-22-1 ATS in their next game. If they beat that divisional team by double-digits, they are 9-11-1 ATS in their next game under John Harbaugh.

+ Lamar Jackson is 46-19 SU and 33-32 ATS in his career. Since his first start in 2018, four other Ravens QBs have made a start — Robert Griffin, Josh Johnson, Joe Flacco and Tyler Huntley. Those QBs are 7-10 SU/ATS.

+ Games with 10+ MPH winds are 89-58 (60.5%) to the under over the past two seasons. Check the weather report!

+ Between 2016 and 2021, John Harbaugh was 63-36-2 against the first-half spread. This season, the Ravens are 5-7-1 against the first-half spread.

+ Harbaugh has dominated inferior opponents in terms of record. The Ravens are 26-5 SU, but just 15-16 ATS in those games. Of the 31 games, Baltimore has been an underdog three times. They are 3-0 SU/ATS in those games.

+ Ravens since 2017…

  • Home: 21-28 ATS (1-5 ATS this season)
  • Road: 30-17-1 ATS (5-2 ATS this season)

+ Jackson: 13-20 ATS at home | 20-12 ATS on road

Jackson  vs. Browns: 6-2 SU, 5-3 ATS (4-1 SU/ATS vs. Stefanski)



Playoff Scenario:

CLE eliminated == CLE L + LAC W or CLE L + NYJ W or CLE L + NE W

+ Deshaun Watson’s third start for the Browns is this week.

30-28 SU, 27-29-2 ATS career

Watson is 15-7 SU vs. under .500 SU teams and 8-15 SU vs. teams above .500 SU

Watson is only 10-16-2 (38.5%) ATS as a favorite since 2018

+ Watson was listed as a home favorite 20 times with the Texans and he finished 8-12 ATS.

+ Browns can go under their preseason win total (8) with a loss vs. Ravens.

+ How Browns performed under Jacoby Brissett: 4-7 SU, 5-5-1 ATS (7-4 to the over)

+ In 11 games with Brissett, Browns produced NFL’s 5th-ranked offense (EPA per drive), trailing only the Chiefs, Bills, Dolphins and Eagles. Defense (28th in EPA/drive) and bad luck in one-score games more to blame for the 4-7 record.

+ Outdoor divisional unders are 29-14-1 (67.4%) this season and 65-42-1 (60.7%) over the past two seasons. Best start for outdoor divisional unders since 2005 and 2nd-best start in the past 20 years.

+ Browns home overs started the year 4-0 and are 0-2 since. All six starts were under Brissett, this will be Watson’s first home start.

+ Stefanski with Browns

  • Favorite: 18-8 SU, 9-17 ATS
  • Dog: 6-15 SU, 11-9-1 ATS

+ Browns are 8-8 SU, 4-12 ATS vs. the AFC North under Stefanski.

+ Dolphins can push the over on their preseason win total (9) with a win vs. Bills.

+ Tua hasn’t performed well ATS on a road trip in his career (2nd or more consecutive road games). Tua is 1-3 SU and 0-4 ATS in the 2nd game or later of a road trip and this is the first time he’s played a 3rd straight road game.

+ Tua has started 31 NFL games and played in 32 college games at Alabama in his career, he has never started a game with the temperature below 36 degrees. Saturday is expected to be about 28 degrees.

In the NFL, he’s started three games at 50 degrees or colder and the Dolphins are 0-3 SU/ATS, averaging just 14 PPG.

+ Dolphins are 16-6 SU in past 22 games.

+ Tua prefers South Beach when it comes to covering the number. He’s 12-4 ATS at home and 6-9-1 ATS away from home in his career.

+ Dolphins are 5-1 to the under at home this season and 5-2 to the over on the road.

+ Tua is 9-5-1 (64%) ATS as an underdog in his career.

Largest Underdog of Tua’s Career

  • +15 == at Bills (L 26-11; 2021)
  • +7 == vs. Chiefs (L 33-27; 2020)
  • +6 == vs. Patriots (W 33-24; 2021)

+ Tua is 4-0 ATS vs. Patriots and 2-3-1 ATS vs. Jets and Bills.



Playoff Scenario:

BUF playoffs == BUF W

  • Bills are back to favorites to win the Super Bowl at +375, ahead of the Chiefs and Eagles at +450.

+ Bills have won 10 of their past 12 games vs. the Dolphins, including 7-1 in their past eight (lost earlier this season vs. MIA)

+ Dolphins are allowing 24 PPG this season. Josh Allen has excelled vs. good defenses and struggled against bad defenses in terms of covering the spread.

  • Vs. teams allowing 24+ PPG: 15-15-4
  • Vs. teams allowing less than 24 PPG: 24-16-1

+ Allen has failed to cover the spread in three consecutive home games. In his career, he’s never lost three straight home games ATS.

Bills haven’t lost three consecutive home games ATS since 2016 and haven’t lost four straight ATS at home since 2014.

+ Since 2020, Allen is 8-2 SU and 7-3 ATS in December, the most profitable QB ATS in the month.

+ The under is 9-2 in the Bills past 11 games.

+ The biggest advantage in Buffalo might just be the Bills second half. Under Allen, the Bills are 48-28-3 (63%) against the second-half spread.

In the month of December, Allen is 13-5-1 against the second half spread, covering eight of their past 10 since 2020.

Falcons beat the Saints 27-25 last year in New Orleans. Atlanta hasn’t beaten New Orleans on the road in consecutive years since 2001 and 2002.

+ Not a shock the Falcons made the move to Ridder. Atlanta has scored fewer than 17 points in consecutive games for just the 3rd time since 2014.

+ Saints-Falcons is just the 3rd game since 2010 where both teams have both scored and allowed fewer than 20 points in consecutive games entering the contest.

When two teams meet after both scoring fewer than 20 points in consecutive games entering the contest, the over is 35-18-1 (66%) in the past decade

+ The under has cashed in 4 of the past 5 Falcons games, including going 7-3 in their past 10 games overall.



+ Saints were on a bye last week. In Andy Dalton’s career, he is 9-18 SU and 12-15 ATS on extended rest.

Dalton’s 18 losses on extended rest since 2011 (his 1st season) are tied for the 2nd-most among all QBs (most? Stafford). 

+ Late-season divisional unders in the early window have gone 214-159-9 (57.4%) since 2003 (Dec. or later in regular season and 1p ET or earlier).

+ With both the Saints and Bears, Andy Dalton is 4-0 SU/ATS as a home favorite.

+ In the past 15 years, Saints are 9-1 SU at home off a bye week. Their only loss? 2019 vs. the Falcons.

+ Saints are 750-1 to win it all, their longest odds this season.

+ Between 2008 and 2019, Saints were 19-6 SU/ATS at home coming off a road trip (2+ consecutive road games). Since then, they are just 2-4 SU/ATS, losing two straight where they’ve scored a combined 9 points.

+ When both teams are on extended rest (8 days rest or more), the under is 66-40-1 (62.2%) since 2018.

Williams was also 150-1 to lead the NFL in rushing touchdowns in the preseason.

+ Lions have covered the spread in 6 consecutive games. They haven’t covered 6 straight games since 2011 (covered 7 straight between 2010 and 2011). The last time Detroit covered 6 straight all in the same season? 1995.

+ Lions are down to 100-1 to win it all, their shortest odds since Week 4.

+ Lions can go over their preseason win total with a win over the Jets.

+ Goff is 3-9 SU and 4-8 ATS in his past 12 starts coming off a double-digit win.

+ This week, the Lions travel to New York and will have to play outdoors. Not great for Jared Goff.

  • Indoors: 25-13 ATS

+ Under Dan Campbell and Sean McVay, Goff is 54-38-2 ATS (58.7%). Under John Fassel and Jeff Fisher he was 0-7 ATS.

+ Mahomes performs better ATS away from home

  • Home: 21-23-1 ATS
  • Road/Neutral: 24-17-1 ATS

+ Mahomes as above a 7-pt favorite on the road: 8-0 SU, 1-7 ATS

Mahomes is 16-0 SU and 8-8 ATS as above a 5-pt favorite on the road in his career.

+ Mahomes in November and December in his career: 33-5 SU, 17-19-2 ATS

Mahomes had his has 26-game SU win streak in November and December snapped vs. Bengals in Week 13.

+ Chiefs are massive road favorites. If they close at 7 or more, the under is 84-45-2 (65%) when the road team is favored by 7 or more and the total is 45 or more over the past decade.

+ Chiefs are 6-1 to the under at home this season and 5-1 to the over on the road.

+ Chiefs are on the 3rd-game of a road trip from Cincinnati to Denver to Houston. Mahomes is 10-1 SU and 6-5 ATS in the 2nd game or later of a road trip and this is the first time he’s played a 3rd straight road game.

+ Chiefs can go over their preseason win total with a win over the Texans.

+ The Chiefs trailed the Bengals 14-10 at the half in Week 13 and lost. Kansas City had won their past 6 games in which they trailed at halftime. That was the longest streak by any NFL team (reg & post) since the 49ers won 7 straight from 1989-90.

If you want to make betting decisions for yourself but don’t have the time to collect all the data, check out our NFL PRO Report. This analysis highlights five key betting signals: big money, sharp action, expert projections, expert picks and historical betting systems.


Our model’s odds are compared to the consensus odds. We recommend at least a B Grade 3.5% edge before considering a bet based solely on projections.


PRO Systems

Road Dog, Low Total After Bad Season: This system looks to take advantage of the perceptions that the team may not be very good based on last season’s results. Small dogs when the total isn’t too high have covered at a very high rate and we removed Thursday Night Football games to avoid short turnarounds.
