How should football bettors treat these 2-2 NFL teams


NFL clubs whether they’re trending upward or downward

How should football bettors treat these 2-2 NFL teams | News Article by

If you wanted parity in the NFL, the first four weeks of the 2017 season has it in spades. There are 12 teams at 2-2 heading into Week 5 after some stunning results in Week 3 and Week 4. But not all 2-2 teams are created equal.

We take a closer look at some of these .500 NFL clubs and tell you whether they’re trending upward or downward, and where football bets online can cash in:

New England Patriots (2-2 SU, 1-3 ATS)
A season after going 13-3 ATS in the regular season and a perfect 3-0 ATS in the playoffs, the Patriots are current one of the worst bets in the NFL. New England’s struggles started on opening night, getting blasted by Kansas City at home on a Thursday in Week 1. The Patriots rebounded with a solid performance against the Saints in Week 2, but nearly fell to Houston at home in Week 3, and then got upended by Carolina last Sunday.

New England is still able to put up points, but a woeful defense has Brady & Co. working overtime to overcome those deficiencies with the stop unit. The Pats are giving up 32 points on 456.8 yards per game through four weeks and run up against Tampa Bay (+5) on a short week this Thursday. The Bucs do have the weapons through the air to exploit that weak pass defense, so New England could in be In tough with little time to right the ship before Week 5.

Dallas Cowboys (2-2 SU, 2-2 ATS)
The Cowboys are one of the toughest teams to get a handle on so far in 2017, looking impressive in a Week 1 victory over the Giants, then getting abused in Denver in Week 2. Dallas followed that with come-from-behind win against Arizona on Monday night in Week 3, then blew a comfy lead in a loss to the Rams this past Sunday.

Will the real Cowboys please stand up? Dallas (-2) has a massive revenge game lined up for this weekend, hosting the Green Bay Packers in Arlington – the same opponent which ousted them from the NFC Divisional Round in a barnburner last January. This game could serve as a turnaround point for Dallas or as a breaking point. The one thing that has stuck out so far this season is that the Cowboys’ offensive line has been far from dominant - pass and run blocking - and that was the backbone of last year’s NFC East title winning team.

New York Jets (2-2 SU, 2-2 ATS)
Most people didn’t have the Jets pegged to win two games all season, let alone sit at 2-2 through the first four weeks of play. New York has won back-to-back home games, taking advantage of tough travel spots from both the Dolphins – who were displaced in California following Hurricane Irma – and the Jaguars – who were coming off a week in London, England.

The Jets played tough at Buffalo in Week 1 and then were rolled by the Raiders in Oakland in Week 2, but all said that game on the West Coast was really their only terrible performance. New York has a very good shot at moving to 3-2 – or at least covering the spread – during a trip to Cleveland (-1.5) this Sunday. The Browns are 0-4 but getting treated with much more respect than they should be, especially after getting blasted by Cincinnati in Week 4.

Seattle Seahawks (2-2 SU, 1-3 ATS)
The Seahawks have been known for slow starts and seemed to find their stride in the second half against Indianapolis Sunday night. However, Seattle’s two wins have come at home inside CenturyLink Field against two poor teams in the Colts and 49ers. The Seahawks losses came on the road versus Green Bay in Week 1 and Tennessee in Week 3.

Buyer beware as Seattle hits the highway again in Week 5, this time moving down the coast to face the Los Angeles Rams as 2.5-point underdogs. The Seahawks actually opened as 2.5-point road chalk for that NFC West rivalry, which shows you how the sharp bettors are treating Russell Wilson and the Seahawks away from the Emerald City. Seattle has allowed 134 rushing yard per game and go up against L.A. running back Todd Gurley, is second in rushing yards and first in rushing touchdowns.
