NFL Week 8 Data Review

Each Wednesday during the NFL season, we will be reviewing the prior weekend’s results, with a focus on any trends that we find noteworthy.

In addition, we will be updating the embedded spreadsheet found below, which provides an in-depth breakdown of many key indicators by Money Line, Line, and Total results.

Please note, that we have added two worksheets to the weekly spreadsheet.  BY_LINE, gives you the Favorites and Underdogs by all the Current Week Lines, and BY_TOTAL  gives you the Overs and Unders by all the Current Week Totals.

Also, we have moved our weekly review of NFL trends that we follow to a separate Blog, that will be titles, Some NFL Trends That We Follow * Updated.


Overall for the Current Week Favorites were 9-4 to the Money Line, ATS was 6-6,  and in the Totals, the Unders were 9-4.

Now, Season to date the Favorites are 80-36 against the Money Line, Dogs are ahead 57-55 ATS, and in the Totals the Over is 59-55.

The Projected Success Rates for the week were as follows:

  • Money Line 7-6 53.8%
  • ATS –  4-8   33.3%
  • Totals  9-4  69.2%

Bringing our season to date to:

  • Money Line 69-47 – 60.2%
  • ATS –  53-57   48.2%
  • Totals  62-49  55.9%


In the embedded Excel workbook below,  you will find the following worksheets:

  1. BY_GAME_TYPE – Results by Conference, and Non-Conference games by week
  2. BY_AWAY_HOME – Results by Away team versus Home team by week
  3. BY_PUBLIC_CONSENSUS – Analysis of whether the Public Betting Consensus was correct or incorrect by week
  4. BY_LINE – Breakdown of Favorites and Underdogs for all the Current Week Line
  5. BY_TOTAL – Breakdown of Overs and Unders for all the Current Week Totals

Some observations we made when analyzing the Week 7 Data: 

  • STD the Projected Success Rate for Totals has been 71.0% in Division Games
  • STD the Projected ATS outcomes has been 65.2% in Non-Conference Games
  • STD in Division Games the Home Team has been 63.3% ATS
  • In Week 8  Division Games all were Under the Total
  • In Week 8 Conference Games the Dogs all won SU and ATS
  • The ATS Public Consensus was down to 41.7% correct
  • The Total Public Consensus plummeted to 30.8% correct

Please note the following regarding the data:

  • The data is for the Current Season of NFL Football that we display on our site GreyMatterStats
  • The data is grouped by a week-ending date and a running season-to-date total
  • When a Money Line percent is greater than 75%, the cell is highlighted in green
  • When a Line or Total percent is greater than 60%, the cell is highlighted in green
  • We have added cells that show the current week differences for both the Season to Date and the Prior Week’s data
  • In games that closed as a Pick, for our purposes the Home Team was the Favorite
  • All Pushes have been omitted


On the Excel Web App toolbar of embedded spreadsheet, if you click the right-most button, View Full Size Workbook, the entire workbook will open for viewing in a new window
