SEC 2011 Odds Preview

Five different teams have won the SEC over the last six seasons, and the last five SEC champs have  gone on to win the national title. So the stakes are huge when it comes to this conference. This season the SEC starts off with two teams ranked in the top four, and eight in the Top 25. Looks like another banner year for the top conference in the country; head over to Bovada for the latest SEC odds.

TCU vs Baylor College Football Betting

To bet on the Baylor Bears Friday is to bet that TCU will lose its first regular season game since 2008.

While it's not impossible (and while many bettors seem to be throwing their support behind the Bears), it's a risky proposition betting against one of NCAA football's premiere programs at Floyd Casey Stadium.

Sophomore quarterback Casey Pachall takes over for Andy Dalton at TCU, which will move to the Big East next season. But they lost a lot of seniors and may be ripe for the taking by Baylor.

D-Backs vs. Giants: Baseball Betting

The San Francisco Giants will be looking to put a dent in the Arizona Diamondbacks' NL West lead when the teams meet in an MLB betting matchup on Friday night.

Matt Cain (10-9, 2.87 ERA) is the scheduled starter in this key contest for the Giants on Friday. Joe Saunders (9-11, 3.82 ERA) is the probable pitcher for the Diamondbacks in their road game.

However, the Wisconsin Badgers and transfer QB Russell Wilson might have something to say about that, as might the scandal-rocked Ohio State Buckeyes.

Patriots vs Giants Preseason Preview

For the past six seasons the Giants and Patriots have ended their preseason schedules with a battle against each other.

Maybe that has to do with the ties between the teams (Bill Belichick spent 12 years on the New York Giants staff before becoming a ‘genius’ in New England). Maybe it's geographical proximity or the fact that non-conference battles are preferred in the preseason so you don’t risk giving away secrets for the regular season.

Mayweather Ortiz odds highlight September

Floyd Mayweather Jr. has only fought twice in nearly four years but he found ways to keep himself in the public eye.

And being 41-0 and remaining in the public eye is a good way to make yourself a huge boxing betting favorite. That’s what’s happening Sept. 17 when he faces hard-punching Victor Ortiz, a fight many hope is a prelude to a superfight between Pretty Boy Floyd and Manny Pacquiao.

Division II schools huge underdogs

Not every sportsbook offers odds on college football games involving Division II schools, but alumni from those schools can get their action down at one shop.

They might not like the odds, but Fordham fans can bet on the Rams when they face UConn on Thursday to kick off the NCAA football betting schedule for 2001. The spread? 40 points at 5Dimes. Can the Rams cover 40 points?

Bulldogs visit Tigers in Week 1 battle

The host Memphis Tigers open as 31-point underdogs against the Mississippi State Bulldogs as college football betting action kicks off a new season Thursday.

 

Memphis was horrible last year at 1-11 and oddsmakers opened them as 4-TD underdogs against the SEC school this week. Even with that huge spread, bettors continue to back the SEC Bulldogs.

Baseball Odds: Rays vs. Rangers

The Texas Rangers go with C.J. Wilson on Thursday night as they close out their three-game home series against the Tampa Bay Rays.

Wilson (13-6, 3.29 ERA) took a no-decision against the Rays in Tampa Bay back on May 31, allowing three earned runs on three hits over 6 2-3 innings while fanning 10 in that Texas defeat.
