NL Wild Card Batting Props and Odds

Neither the Chicago Cubs nor Pittsburgh Pirates have been overly reliant on the long ball this season with the teams finishing 12th and 23rd in the MLB in home runs this season. That explains why it is more likely for no baseballs to leave the park Wednesday than any player hitting a dinger according to Bovada.


Maple Leafs vs Canadiens: NHL Odds

One of sport’s greatest rivalries will kick off the NHL season when the Toronto Maple Leafs host the Montreal Canadiens at the Air Canada Center. The Leafs kick off a new era with new coach Mike Babcock at the helm and hope to rebound from yet another disappointing season that saw them finish second to last in the conference.

The Canadiens, meanwhile, finished second in the conference and are eyeing a Stanley Cup run. Oddsmakers give Montreal the 11th best odds in the NHL at capturing the Cup, while the Leafs rank a dreadful 28th. View those odds here.

Hockey fans might be surprised to hear that the Leafs have a slight edge in the series against Montreal over the past 25 years, going 55-52-5. Toronto has also started their past five seasons strong, going 4-1 in season openers, with the Canadiens going just 1-4.

SN: NFL Week 5 Betting Trends Analysis

Unbeaten Cincinnati should bury Seattle, which has a struggling offensive line and is traveling on a short week having just hosted Detroit on Monday night.

Or should the Bengals? Cincinnati is 16-2-1 in its last 19 home games, 15-3-1 against the spread (ATS).

Impressive, but. Seattle is underrated away from boisterous CenturyLink Field covering 15 of its past 23 road contests. The Seahawks also are 11-3 ATS on the road when meeting an opponent with a winning home mark.

SuperContest Team OS Week 4 Review

The Detroit Lions kept Team OddsShark co-leaders David Fucillo of SB Nation and Ryan Fowler of FOX Sports from both going 4-1 in the SuperContest at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook for the fourth consecutive week.


SN: NFL Week 5 Opening Odds Analysis

The year was 2001. It was not a good time to be a Dallas Cowboys fan.

Troy Aikman was released and then retired before that season began. The Cowboys tried four different starting quarterbacks, including Ryan Leaf. Overmatched Dave Campo was the head coach. The team went 5- 11.

It also was the last time the Cowboys were this big of home underdogs. Face rested New England without Tony Romo and Dez Bryant and it's understandable that the Patriots are eight-point favorites against the Cowboys.

GB Looks to Continue Home Dominance

The St. Louis Rams face the unenviable task of taking on the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field in Week 5 NFL action.

Green Bay has rattled off 11 straight victories (including the playoffs) at the storied stadium – the longest active home winning streak in the league. 

Even without superstar wide receiver Jordy Nelson the Packers haven’t missed a beat in 2015. Aaron Rodgers and company are a perfect 4-0 SU and ATS through at the quarter mark of the season.

The Rams are coming off an impressive road win over the red-hot Arizona Cardinals and have made a habit of cashing Unders away from the Edward Jones Dome. St. Louis is 9-13 O/U in its last 14 clashes on the road.

The big story in this game is going to be offense. Green Bay’s high-flying offense is especially lights out at Lambeau, while the Rams are the worst offensive team in the league, ranking 28th in passing and 23rd in rushing.
