With three weeks left in the regular season, the sprint for the playoffs is on.

All data, stats and trends are updated as of Saturday, Dec. 24, 12 p.m. ET.


1. The Cold Has Arrived

As of now, we have seven Week 16 games with a total under 40 — Some highlights:

2. A New Era

The Lions have covered the spread in 7 consecutive games. They haven’t covered 7 straight games since 2011 (covered 7 straight between 2010 and 2011). The last time Detroit covered 7 straight in the same season? 1991, the last time the Lions made it past the Wild Card round of the playoffs.

Dan Campbell’s Coach of the Year odds are also on the move. He was 250-1 entering Week 13 (Jags-Lions), 150-1 entering Week 14, 9-1 entering Week 15 and is +175 entering Week 16.

3. Dog Day Afternoon

With Gardner Minshew starting vs. the Cowboys …

The Eagles would be 13th team in December or later to be an underdog with a 90%+ win pct. The previous 12 teams were 2-10 SU in that game. Philly is 8-17 ATS on the road since 2020, the least profitable road team ATS in that span.

4. Sinking Fast

A Seahawks streak a decade-plus in the making. Seattle has lost 5 consecutive games ATS.

  • Geno Smith’s first 5-game ATS losing streak of his career (47 career starts).
  • Seattle hasn’t lost 5 consecutive games ATS in the same season since 2003.
