Our general opinion is that handicapping trends are for bettors who want to fill the sportsbook’s pockets. However there are some trends that are based on a bit of logic. One of the better betting trends is the after playing a certain divisional rival.
The theory is that after an emotional game against a team in their own division they may suffer a letdown in the following week or after a physically intense game they may be a little beat up going into their next match-up.
While as mentioned there is some logic to this handicapping trend we don’t recommend that you place a wager solely by this information. Instead use this information as one of the many handicapping tools that are required to make a profit betting the NFL.
Below we have listed the best and worst records of teams after playing a certain divisional opponent.
