NFL Betting Power Rankings – December

Dallas has made up for 2020’s 5-11 record with a second-to-best place, well-earned in 2021 with an 8-2 tally. The ‘Boys MOV is 7.9 with an average of +6.2 points covered.
The Cardinals have surged past last season’s 43.8% ATS, and they’re looking sunny-side up with 72.7% of games covered, putting them at 8-3-0.
Indy is looking at 7-4-0 with a 5.8 point MOV and an average of +5.5 points covered, which is up nicely from 2020’s +1.2 points.
Tennessee has managed to cover 63.6% of their games at an average of +3.0 points and a MOV of 3.4, edging out their 2.6 MOV last season.
New England Patriots
With a 7-4-0 record, the Patriots have covered 63.3% of their games this time around, with a 11.2 MOV and an average of +8.8 points.
Last season the Lions finished out in 20th place ATS, but as of Week 11 they’ve managed to reclaim the pride by clawing their way to the 7th seat, with a record of 6-4-0 and an average of -2.9 points covered.
Considering last year’s performance ATS was minimal at 37.5%, the Vikings are no doubt seizing their moment with the increase to a clean 60% of games covered so far.
While the Bills held up at ATS last season, they’re on track to fall short in 2021 at 55.6% of games won in their 5-4-1 record, at an average of +3.0 points.
The Giants are pretty much where they ended in 2020 with just over half of their games covered. This season has NY with a -4.1 point margin of defeat.
For the 2021 season, Philly has made a huge improvement with 5 out of 11 games covered.
Houston is currently in 12th position of performances ATS, having 50% of games covered at an average of -0.8 points.
New Orleans Saints
The Saints have covered 5 games out of 10, although 2021’s MOV for New Orleans is only 3.3 to last year’s 8.2.
The Chargers have covered exactly half of their games at 50% which is just shy of their 56.2% record closing out 2020. They’ve got a -0.5 MOV to last year’s -2.6.
With a 5-5 record, the ‘Hawks are just barely covering half of their games. Seattle is at a -1.5 margin of defeat and an average of -1.6 points covered.
Denver is looking at 5 for 5 ATS with a 1.7 point MOV and -0.3 points covered on average, in contrast to last year’s -2.0.
How the dolphins have dived; 2020’s top team ATS find themselves in spot number 17 in the current season, with a record of 5-5-1 and a -6.2 margin of defeat.
Cincinnati is right at the halfway mark with a 5-5 record ATS, an average of +4.2 points covered and a 5.2 point MOV.
The Browns are looking at a -0.6 point margin of defeat and an average of -3.5 points covered within their 5-5 record.
Last week the Panthers were bang-on 50%, but have since moved in the wrong direction with 45.5% of games won against the spread, hanging on with a 0.5 point MOV at an average of +0.8 points covered.
The Ravens led the spread in 2020 in position three, but flew the coop in 2021, which isn’t looking nearly as good down there in position number 21 and a 4-6-0 record.
The Bears stand at 4-6-0 this season, covering an average of -3.0 points. Carrying a 2020 MOV of 0.6 to benchmark against, the new season has moved them farther from the honeypot with a 7.7 margin of defeat.
Pittsburgh is nearing the bottom of the barrel with a 4-6 record so far against the spread, making that just 40% of games covered.
Also in that territory, the Jacksonville Jags are rubbing elbows with last year’s performance ATS, covering 40% ATS so far vs. 43.8% in 2020.
Las Vegas Raiders
On top of a -3.9 point margin of defeat, the Raiders have covered only 4 out of their 10 games, placing them alongside The Steelers and the Jags at that lacklustre 40% mark.
The Rams are averaging -2.6 points covered ATS and a 4.4 point MOV, and they’ve managed to join the club by covering 4 games and passing on 6.
With a clipped -11.0 margin of defeat in 2021, the Falcons have only covered 4 games ATS at an average of -8.2 points.
San Francisco 49ers
The 49ers have dipped below their numerical namesake since their 43.8% coverage in 2020, with a 2.4 margin of defeat in their 4-6-0 record.
Kansas City Chiefs
KC are looking at an unchiefly 4-7-0 record ATS, with a 2.8 point MOV and an average of -2.5 points covered.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The Bucs are the walking wounded ATS in 2021, covering a meek average of -0.8 points in stark contrast against the vigour of last year’s +5.2 points.
Washington Football Team
WA ranked number six for teams ATS not so long ago, but in 2021 they’re second-to-last – only covering an average of -2.2 points in their current 3-7-0 record.
With only 20% of their games covered, the Jets are at a -15.0 MOD and the worst performing team ATS as of Week 11.
As the clock counts down to Thanksgiving’s Week 12 spread betting, there’s no better time to lock in your ATS bets, and watch as your team rises up to the occasion in just the way you’d hoped.
