TOP NFL PLAYER TREND

NFL O/U TREND

PICK SIXTY SPORTS WEEKLY TIP
-- Following Seattle’s win against Arizona Thursday there is still a whole whack of football to get through before Minnesota (1-4 SU, 2-3 ATS) hits New York for Monday’s game against the Giants (0-6 SU, 1-5 ATS). We can see that the line has already moved across a key number, though, to New York (-3.5) so for this week’s tip we will focus our attention here.
-- “Due factor” is the phrase around most water coolers but wasn’t New York “due” after the shutout loss to Carolina? There is another trend suggesting value on home teams following a Thursday nighter and this one makes sense. The players have had extra rest, coaches’ additional time to gameplan and without the hassle of travel the home side has no excuse for a weak effort.
-- This season, home teams are 7-1 ATS off a Thursday game including a perfect 6-0 SU/ATS mark when favored
But the Vikings were 3-5 straight-up on the road last year and so far Minnesota has lost both road games at Detroit and Chicago. Are they not “due?” The Vikes are 12-2 ATS off a blowout loss the past 12 years including a 5-1 ATS record on the road; that certainly adds support to the dog.
-- Minnesota has issues in the secondary and a new starter under center but they also have Adrian Peterson and the Giants struggle against the run. At +3.5 points or more, we like the VIKINGS to cover.
