Top trends and betting tips from Sunday’s late games including one Best Bet from Arizona and an ATS prediction from the Steelers at Raiders
Our NFL Trends with Benefits feature has produced a 3-1 record so far this season and we have two plays to consider in Week 8 along with some interesting football betting systems “live” in the other games on the card.
PITTSBURGH at OAKLAND
The Steelers have won two-straight after a tumultuous start, outscoring the Ravens and Jets by a combined score of 38-22. Pittsburgh was outgained 287-286 last week against Baltimore but they are 7-0-2 ATS the last nine games that followed a game where they were out-yarded. The Raiders have also lost six-straight ATS when their opponent is on a two-plus game winning streak and even after a bye week, Oakland is a beaten and battered group.
Pittsburgh’s injury sheet is also long and they’ve been playing with a short deck the whole season but it looks like most of the defensive starters will dress and coming off a three-pick performance at Arrowhead, Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor has proven he is easily rattled by a stout D.
SDQL System Says: In the past year, NFL teams who scored below their offensive projection in back-to-back weeks have a 17-3-1 ATS record, clearing the spread by an average of 7.5 points per game (Click for details)
The Steelers are laying points on the road after a tough divisional win but NFL teams in this spot are 31-18 ATS since 2000 including a 10-2 ATS record the past five seasons.

SUNDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL
The line on Green Bay at Minnesota is down to -7 at several online sportsbooks including Bet 365 and William Hill. Primary concerns over the Packers are their inability to stop Adrian Peterson and the injuries to key offensive personnel including WR James Jones. We feel that QB Aaron Rodgers will still find plenty of targets and move the football and also note that Green Bay has a 14-3-1 ATS record against turnover prone opponents. Minnesota turns the ball over 2.5 times per game this year, second-most behind the New York Giants. Despite the steep pointspread our play is on the road squad to cover.
