Jim Bob Cooter is the Detroit Lions’ new offensive coordinator. Maybe he can turn around this trend: The Lions are 0-8 against the spread (ATS) the last eight times when playing on a grass field. Guess where the Lions are this Sunday?
London’s Wembley Stadium, which is a grass field. Detroit currently is a five-point underdog to Kansas City. The Lions, by the way, have lost 20 straight games in November when getting points.
San Diego and Baltimore are each enduring a season of hell. But something has to give when the Ravens host the three-point underdog Chargers on Sunday.
The Ravens have failed to cover in their last five home matchups. The Chargers are 1-12 ATS in their last 13 games versus AFC opponents, failing to cover the past six times they’ve faced a below .500 team.
Baltimore enters this month having won 10 of its last 11 November home games according to the OddsShark NFL Database.
Texans Haven’t Been Paying Off at Home
It’s been an eventful last few days for the Houston Texans. The bad news for the team is they’ve lost running back Arian Foster again – this time for the season, if not forever – after he suffered a torn Achilles tendon this past Sunday. The good news is the Texans released quarterback Ryan Mallett.
The Texans are home to face Tennessee this week. Houston is 6-13 ATS in its last 19 home contests. The Titans, though, have lost in eight of their past nine away contests. There is no line yet pending the status of Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota.
Jets Lucrative Option Against AFC Foes
Bettors are giving Oakland a lot of respect. The New York Jets currently are just 1.5-point road favorites versus the Raiders. It’s not an ideal travel spot for the Jets flying cross-country after losing a tough game to New England this past Sunday. But does anybody believe the Raiders are better than the Jets? New York is 7-0-1 ATS in its last eight games against AFC foes.
Green Bay faces its most severe test going on the road to meet unbeaten Denver in the Sunday night game. The Packers have covered a highly impressive 72 percent in their last 33 games versus above .500 opponents. The Packers are a field goal favorite.
