Sorry to hear about the flu, hope all are recovering. Since you have sent some things of interest to me, I'd like to send some things back for you to consider a study. 


Teams that were shutout at home, and playing at home again are 45-25 ATS (against the spread). 


Nothing is more humiliating to a professional football player than to be shutout at home in front of their own fans, and then have to come back and face them again next week. The media, coaches, players, everyone takes the heat all week, and no escape, have to face them the next week, so these teams really get fired up for the next game, and the oddsmakers are forced to juice the line, making for an inefficient market. 

Teams that are 0-6 or worse in the NFL are 42-17-3 ATS. 

The public doesn't want to back an 0-6 team so the oddsmakers are forced to juice the lines, and making the market inefficient. 

Any NFL team off of 7 straight losses is 86-51-5 ATS 

similar logic as above 

I have a lot of these type things, was wondering how statistically significant they are, if at all?
