NFL Records ATS After the Bye

In the NFL certain teams have had decidedly more success against the spread
after a bye week than others. The theory would be that certain coaches are
more skilled at motivating their team and use the extra week to their advantage
for game planning and preparation.

However, that to me is bull. The against the spread trends for after the bye week are just happenings. Like when you flip a coin it can come up tails 8 of 10 times, but at some point it will even itself out.

For those of you that feel that there is some value to these trends, we have included each team’s record after the bye versus the betting line and straight up win/loss below.
