Here are some more specific trends and the games they'll be affecting this weekend:

1. Overall, road teams own a 72-60-9 ATS (54.5%) record in the preseason's first full week since 2000.

* Projected plays for '09 - Washington, New England, Arizona, Dallas, St. Louis, Minnesota, Cincinnati, Denver, Atlanta, Chicago, Tampa Bay, Houston, Cleveland, Seattle, Jacksonville, Miami, Carolina.

2. Road Underdogs of 4-points or more are 9-10 SU but 14-5 ATS (73.7%) in the first full week of the preseason since '00.

* Projected plays for '09 - St. Louis

3. Over the last nine years, Road Underdogs of +1 to +3.5 points are 40-55 SU but 50-38-7 ATS (56.8%) in the upcoming week of the preseason.
