That said, they are 1-6 SU on the road in their last seven outings. On the flipside, the Bengals lead the league with a 6-0-1 ATS mark, highlighted by a 9.4-point winning margin.

The Packers are 6-1 SU on the season, coming off their first loss in 2015. A road loss to the undefeated Denver Broncos. They are 5-2 ATS with a 6.3-point winning margin and, surprisingly, just 2-5 in O/U betting.

Dolphins vs. Bills
The Dolphins are 3-8 SU against the Bills in their last 11 meetings on the road. Buffalo won their earlier meeting this season 41-14 in London, prompting the dismissal of Joe Philbin.

Rams vs. Vikings

After the Browns, Vikings are the second best team in spread betting markets with a 6-1-0 mark and a 3.6-point winning margin. At home they are 3-0 ATS with a whopping 11-point winning margin.

Falcons vs. Niners
The Niners have lost the plot behind a 2-6 SU start on the season, and benched Colin Kaepernick for Week 9’s clash with the Falcons. Whether the NFL betting odds are worth considering for the new look, Niners behind Gabbert is debatable. Niners are 3-11 ATS in their last 14 games at home and 2-2 SU and ATS at home with a 2.2-point losing margin. Falcons are 6-2 SU in their last eight games and 3-1 SU and 2-2 ATS on the road with a 2-point winning margin. As the away betting favourite, the Falcons are 0-2 ATS with a 3.5-point losing margin.

However, that NFL betting trend could be on the verge of ending given the suspect play of the Colts this season.
