Each week, we'll highlight the best NFL betting trends and angles to consider as you prepare for the weekend's action. We've gone 2-2 with the trends for three straight weeks, so here's to a winning batch this time around.

Here are some notable trends to watch for in Week 7.

Bills (-12.5, 45.5) at Jets, 1 p.m. ET

The last 10 teams to start the season with six losses against the spread went 3-7 ATS in their next game, which is bad news for a Jets squad that hasn't come close to covering and is losing by over 18 points per game. The Bills, meanwhile, are on a 19-7-1 ATS run following back-to-back losses, and double-digit road favorites are 16-2-1 ATS since the end of 2017.

Trend play: Bills -12.5

Browns (-3, 51) at Bengals, 1 p.m.

Good luck betting the Browns on the road, where they've gone 1-8 ATS since Week 5 of last season and 13-22 ATS since 2016. The Bengals have been average at home, but they're 7-2-2 ATS in their last 11 as underdogs and have gone 10-1-1 ATS in their last 12 against Cleveland.

Trend play: Bengals +3

Panthers at Saints (-7.5, 51.5), 1 p.m.

Until Teddy Bridgewater stops covering as an underdog, I'll keep betting on him in that spot. The Panthers quarterback is now 19-6 ATS in his career as a 'dog, including seven outright wins over his last nine tries. The Saints are 4-11 ATS in their last 15 games as home favorites, and they've lost four of their last five ATS to Carolina.

Trend play: Panthers +7.5

Packers (-3.5, 56.5) at Texans, 1 p.m.

The Packers were smoked a week ago, but that's no reason to avoid them here. Aaron Rodgers is 33-21-1 ATS in his career after a loss, with five straight wins in that spot, while road favorites coming off a 28-plus-point defeat are an impressive 12-5 ATS since 2008. The Texans may be improved from the beginning of the year, but they've still lost six of their last seven ATS, and six straight as underdogs.

Trend play: Packers -3.5
