Could be a hanging caliper. When you do brakes do you make sure the caliper pins slide and are properly lubricated?

There are a few things I have came across, the caliper sticking is one, the hose's are another, then there is the possibility of too much moisture in the brake system that will turn to steam and start to apply the brakes as you drive and use the brakes normally. But the calipers are the most common.
