There's a trend out there that I like to call the "Statfox Trend." Those of you who have followed my picks over the years know that it's very effective.
The premise: In Weeks 2-10, bet against any home favorite coming off a road victory of 1-3 points. Teams in that situation are just 17-38 against the spread since 2000.
Road wins are hard to come by in the NFL. If a team is victorious away from home by a small margin, maybe they do too much celebrating and aren't focused during the week. Who knows? The fact remains you can make tons of money with this trend.
Of course, there are exceptions. Here is a list of how each coach has fared coming off a slim road victory early in the season.

I don't know how successful Lamar Jackson is gonna be at the next level since you still have to be a sophisticated passer in the NFL, but I think Sam Darnold and Josh Rosen are the real deal. People have somewhat forgotten about the latter because he's been sidelined with an injury, but he'll bounce back, be a Heisman contender next season and probably end up in the 2018 Draft's top 10.
