Yes and no. There are fares that may target specific days of the week for travel, but those will really depend on a specific airline's analysis of trends. Also, there are dates and times where you might find a lower fare because of availability. Keep in mind that fares are tiered, and the lowest fares for a specific flight may sell out faster than another.

I like to use google flights to get a comparison of fares for a specific route over different dates, as it will show you the lowest available in a calendar format.

Assuming there are patterns that can be guessed is equivalent to weather forecasting. As well, pricing for trans-continental travel may not follow the ups and downs of the domestic market. Better to just shop for specific dates and routes, starting two to three months out to lessen the chance of a schedule change after purchase.
