If you’re looking for NFL betting trends and horrible teams to fade, then keep an eye on the Washington Football Team who are 1-7 ATS this season and only 2-6 straight up. The New York Jets, Kansas City Chiefs, Jacksonville Jaguars, San Francisco 49ers, and WFT were all fade worthy as the worst ATS teams in the first half of the season.

The LOL Jets are at it once again with a 2-6 record ATS, which made fading them a profitable pursuit through the first eight weeks of the season. You expected the Jets to stink, but it’s an utter shock to see the Kansas City Chiefs with the same 2-6 ATS record.

Washington Football Team 1-7 2-6
New York Jets 2-6 2-6
Kansas City Chiefs 2-6 4-4
Jacksonville Jaguars 2-5 1-6
San Francisco 49ers 2-5 3-4

The Miami Dolphins bubbled the list with a 2-5-1 ATS record through eight games. The Tampa Bay Bucs, the defending Super Bowl Champions, are 6-2 straight up this season but only 3-5 ATS.


The Washington Football Team has a bye in Week 9, which they desperately need after losing four games in a row. Next week, they host the Tampa Bay Bucs and luckily they have an extra week to prep against Tom Brady. Washington gives up the sixth most points (28.4 ppg), and they struggle to score with only 19.5 ppg. As far as betting trends go, WFT is the worst ATS team in the NFL with a 1-7 record. If you fade the WFT, then you’re 7-1 this season.

Jets 2-6 ATS

The LOL Jets (2-6) shocked the Tennessee Titans and Cincinnati Bengals this season with two upset victories, but they’ve been 0-6 ATS in the remainder of their games. You know how much we love to fade the LOL Jets, which is one of the most popular betting trends available with a 2-6 ATS record this season. The Jets were plagued with injuries on defense, so it’s no surprise they have the worst defense in the NFL that allows 31.4 ppg. The Jets are also on a bye in Week 9, which gives them extra time to prep against the Buffalo Bills in Week 10.

Chiefs 2-6 ATS

The Kansas City Chiefs (4-4) entered the season as one of the favorites to win Super Bowl 56. After a slow 1-2 start, the Chiefs tumbled out of the top spot on the futures board. Yet the Chiefs continue to disappoint bettors with a 2-6 ATS clip. Bookies love the fact that the public overvalues the Chiefs, even though week-after-week bettors are still firing away on Mahomes and company in hopes that this is the week they turn around their woes. The Chiefs caught a break in Week 9 when Aaron Rodgers tested positive for COVID-19, but can they cover -7 against backup Jordan Love in his first start?

Jags 2-5 ATS

The Jacksonville Jaguars won only one game this season, but find themselves home dogs once again, where they’re 0-4 ATS. On Sunday, the Super-Bowl favorite Buffalo Bills spot the lowly Jags +14.5 points, and that still might not be enough to keep up with Josh Allen and the high-octane Bills.

49ers 2-5 ATS

The San Francisco 49ers (3-4) host the Arizona Cardinals (7-1) in a tough NFC West divisional matchup in Week 9. The 49ers are favorites because Kyler Murray (ankle) is banged up and not expected to play, even though his ultimate status will be a game-time decision.
