Our league trends page show a macro view of the trends that are developing in the NFL. You can see how AFC teams are performing against NFC teams. You can find out if home teams and favored teams are actually covering the point spread. You can see what the scoring edge for home teams is, if any, so that you have an objective view of whether it's worth giving more points for home teams. We also highlight cross-country trends and post bye week performance across the league. You can filter games to focus on regular, post-season, or primetime trends. You can also look at previous seasons to see where the league landed in a completed season. The complete log of games is included with closing point spreads and over unders. This report of league trends can help you spot and captialize on emerging trends before the efficiency of the NFL market closes them.
