Each week, we'll highlight the best NFL betting trends and angles to consider as you prepare for the weekend's action. We went 1-2-1 last week after the Titans mercifully pushed as two-point favorites.

Here are some notable trends to watch for during Week 2.

Minnesota Vikings at Indianapolis Colts (-3, 48)

When the Vikings lose, you almost always win. Since Week 9 of the 2013 season, Minnesota is 31-8-3 against the spread following an outright loss, including 12-1-3 ATS in its last 16 in that spot. The team is also in a favorable Week 2 situation. When two 0-1 teams meet, the one with the worse Week 1 loss has gone 9-2-1 ATS since 2017.

Trend play: Vikings +3

Jacksonville Jaguars at Tennessee Titans (-9, 43)

The Jaguars were one of the biggest surprises in Week 1, winning outright as significant underdogs. That doesn't bode well for this week. Head coach Doug Marrone is 2-7 ATS following his last nine wins and 4-16 ATS in his career after winning outright as an underdog. Quarterback Ryan Tannehill is also 6-2 ATS as a favorite since joining the Titans.

Trend play: Titans -9

Denver Broncos at Pittsburgh Steelers (-7, 41)

Ben Roethlisberger is back, but that doesn't necessarily mean good things for bettors. The Steelers quarterback is 3-7 ATS over his last 10 contests when giving at least a touchdown. And even after its last win, Pittsburgh is still 3-10 ATS over the team's last 13 games as a favorite, with six outright losses.

Trend play: Broncos +7

Buffalo Bills (-6, 41) at Miami Dolphins

When the total is this low, you need to pay attention. In 2019, those who bet the under were 26-13-1 in games with a total of 41 or lower, including 8-1 when the Bills were involved. Buffalo is also 20-7 to the under in its last 27 road games.

Trend play: Under 41
