MAC 2011 Odds Preview

The Miami-Ohio RedHawks came out of nowhere last year to win the MAC championship, and they look like they've got a chance to repeat this year.

However, a handful of other teams think they've got a chance too. Here's a look at the MAC and some Bovada futures:


Week 3: Preseason NFL Trends

We bet against the Kansas City Chiefs in both of their preseason games so far in August and we’ll be doing the same in Weeks 3 and 4.

Regardless of what the coaches say about their strategy, regardless of whether their starters are playing one set of downs or a full half, and regardless of what the pointspread says.

Because betting against the Kansas City Chiefs in the NFL preseason is about the closest thing you can get to a lock over the past seven years.


MLB Odds: Brewers vs. Pirates

Riding high in the NL Central standings, the Milwaukee Brewers will continue their four-game series in Pittsburgh on Tuesday.

The Brewers have been pulling away from everyone in the division and paying off on the MLB lines over the past few weeks. The Pirates, meanwhile, have tumbled right out of the playoff chase.


CFL Betting Odds: Week 9

League-leading Winnipeg will be at home as they return to action after a bye when they host streaking Hamilton in CFL betting action on Friday night.

Oddsmakers at Bovada have no hesitation in setting the point spread in favor of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers (6-1) by 4.5 points. The opening total is set at 48.5 for the contest.

Winnipeg defeated the Lions 30-17 in their last game, and easily covered as a 1.5-point road underdog. The game’s total went UNDER the posted OVER/UNDER total of 49.5.


Independents 2011 Odds Preview

BYU joins Notre Dame in the ranks of the Independents this season, at least for the time being. And while none of the four Independents have access to automatic bowl bids, all four played in a bowl last year and will be shooting to do the same this year. Here's a look at the four Independent teams and some 2011 Bovada futures odds:

BoSox open MLB betting set in Texas

The Boston Red Sox will head down to Texas on Monday to open a four-game MLB betting series against the West-leading Rangers.

Erik Bedard (4-8, 3.44 ERA) is scheduled to get the ball for the BoSox on Monday night. Lefthander Bedard last faced the Rangers on May 3, allowing two runs over seven innings in a no-decision.


Cardinals meet Cubs on MLB betting lines

The St. Louis Cardinals will close out their MLB betting series against the Cubs in Chicago on Sunday Night Baseball.

The Cardinals have been losing ground to the Milwaukee Brewers in the NL Central and can see their playoff chances slipping away


Baseball Odds: Diamondbacks vs. Braves

Playoff contenders hit the field in Atlanta on Saturday night as the Braves continue their home set against the Diamondbacks.

Arizona has been paying off on the MLB odds lately as they stake their claim to first place in the NL West division standings.


Titans vs. Rams NFL Preseason Odds

The Tennessee Titans will be underdogs on the NFL betting lines on Saturday as they continue their preseason schedule on the road against the St. Louis Rams.

And Tennessee still isn't expected to have Chris Johnson on the field this weekend, as the star running back continues to angle for a new lucrative contract.


Bellator 48 Sandro vs Curran Odds

Marlon Sandro looks to claim Bellator’s featherweight title against fast-rising Pat Curran Saturday in Bellator 48.
Curran meanwhile looks to become the first Bellator fighter to hold titles in two weight classes.

A star in Japan recently in the Sengoku Raiden Championships and in the Shooto Brazil series before that, Sandro is making waves in the USA with Bellator. He is 19-2 with his only coming against heralded stars Michihiro Omigawa and Hatsu Hioki.
