Islanders Hate Facing the Canadiens

The Montreal Canadiens have won their last five games against the New York Islanders -- a trend that will inspire plenty of confidence in Habs backers when they take on the Isles in La Belle Province Sunday evening.

Shark Bites
  • The Canadiens are 11-2 SU in their last 13 games against the Eastern Conference.
  • The Islanders are 3-7 SU in their last 10 games as underdogs.
  • The Islanders are 1-7 SU in their last eight games against the Eastern Conference.

Bettors backing the favorites in this series have been coming up empty handed as of late. Underdogs have paid out in five out of the last six times the Canadiens and Islanders have collided.

The Canadiens (15-4-1) have looked like one of the best squads in the NHL in the 2015/16 campaign while performing especially well at home. Montreal is 8-2-1 on home ice on the season.

SNF Betting: Cardinals vs Bengals Odds

Sunday Night Football Cardinals Bengals

The Cincinnati Bengals are undefeated no more thanks to a 10-6 loss to the Houston Texans in Monday Night Football but will be seeking to get back to their winning ways in Week 10 against the Arizona Cardinals. Home field advantage has been crucial in this series, as the visiting side is 1-7 SU and 2-6 ATS in the last eight meetings between the Bengals and Cardinals.

Shark Bites
  • The Bengals are 0-3 SU and ATS in their last three games on the road against the Cardinals.
  • The total has gone OVER in 10 of the Cardinals' last 11 games as home favorites in November.
  • The Cardinals are 10-4 SU and ATS in their last 14 games after a win.

The Cards have been a solid bet over the course of the last few seasons, particularly at home. Arizona is 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games at University of Phoenix Stadium.

UNDER bettors have been loving when Cincy hits the road as of late, as eight of Cincinnati’s last 11 road contests have gone below the closing total.

Entrants in the Super Contest at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook have a lot of confidence in the return of quarterback Tony Romo in Week 11, as 515 of them (30 percent) picked the Dallas Cowboys (2-7) to defeat the Miami Dolphins (4-5) as a Pick’em on the SuperContest Card.

NFL Week 11 Expert Betting Odds Picks

Each week the Westgate sportsbook in Las Vegas puts out a look-ahead line on NFL games for the following week. The oddsmakers at the Westgate listed Denver as 6.5-point road favorites against Chicago last week.
Lo-and-behold the Bears are favored now. It's a wrong read by the marketplace. Chicago is not better than Denver.
Denver could be looking at a four-game losing skid if it loses this matchup because the following week it meets unbeaten New England. But I don't see the Broncos falling to the Bears.


Nover: Packers Need a Change at Coach

I said it after Green Bay choked away the NFC Championship Game against Seattle: Mike McCarthy should be fired. His game decisions were instrumental in the Packers losing.
The Packers, who have a key matchup on Sunday afternoon when they face the rival Vikings in essentially a pick'em game, have gotten worse this season.


NFL Week 11 Betting Trends Analysis

It takes a special set of circumstances for the Jacksonville Jaguars to be laying points in a game. The Jaguars need to be home and playing a really bad team.
That's the combination Thursday as the Jaguars are a field goal favorite hosting Tennessee. Before this matchup, the Jaguars had been favored just twice during their last 51 games.


NFL Odds: Colts Suddenly Solid ATS Bet

The Georgia Dome is the stage for Week 10’s clash between the Indianapolis Colts and the Atlanta Falcons, where the Colts will be seeking to remain red-hot at the betting window. After an ugly four-game ATS skid to start the season, Indy has covered in four out of their last five games ahead of the tilt.

Historically speaking, Indianapolis has been solid as outright winners when coming off the bye. Indy is 6-0 SU in their last six games coming off the bye – the position they’ll be in once again on Sunday. 

Atlanta hasn’t exactly been lighting the world on fire when tabbed as home faves. Matt Ryan and company, who opened at -6 at most sportsbooks, are 1-5 ATS in their last six games as home chalk.

Matt Hasselbeck will start at quarterback for the Colts in place of Andrew Luck, who’s expected to miss at least a month with a lacerated kidney. In two starts this season, Hasselbeck has thrown three touchdowns and no interceptions.

NFL Week 11 Odds - Ravens vs Rams

Just how bad have the Baltimore Ravens been this season? Baltimore’s 2-7 SU record looks bad enough, but they’re also 1-7-1 ATS on the year including 0-4 ATS at home. Joe Flacco’s club will be attempting to right the ship in Week 10 against the St. Louis Rams.

<h5>Shark Bites</h5>

<ul class="content-list">
<li>The Ravens are 13-5 SU in their last 18 games after losing as favorite.</li>
<li>The Rams are 3-10 ATS in their last 13 games in Week 11.</li>
<li>The total has gone under in five of the Rams' last six games on the road.</li>

St. Louis will need to enter the matchup with a short-term memory in the wake of a 37-13 drubbing at the hands of the Chicago Bears. The Rams failed to get star rookie running back Todd Gurley involved early and looked bad on offense, while getting exposed by Teddy Bridgewater and the Vikings on defense. The Rams are now 4-5 ATS on the season.

These teams have a history of participating in a lot of high-scoring affairs. In the last eight meetings between the Rams and Ravens, the OVER has gone 6-2.

NBA Odds: Hawks at Cavaliers

Cleveland Cavaliers Kevin Love

Two of the Eastern Conference’s best teams are set to do battle Saturday when the Atlanta Hawks travel to Ohio for a date with LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers. This marks the first time since last year’s playoffs that the teams have met, where the Cavs breezed through Atlanta en route to reaching the NBA Finals.

Shark Bites
  • The OVER is 5-0 in the last 5 meetings in Cleveland.
  • The underdog is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
  • The Hawks are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 vs. the Central.

The Cavs snapped an ugly eight-game ATS skid thanks to a 115-110 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks earlier this week, but the Hawks haven’t exactly been lighting the world on fire at the betting window either. Atlanta enters the game covering in just one of their last six matchups.

OVER bettors have been loving the wine and gold lately, and for good reason. The OVER has paid out in five out of Cleveland’s last six tilts.
