Cardinals Dolphins Betting Preview

The surprisingly undefeated Arizona Cardinals hope to stay hot this Sunday when they host the Miami Dolphins at the University of Phoenix Stadium.

Arizona is 8-1 SU and 7-2 ATS over its last nine games. Miami is just 7-15 SU in its last 22 games overall and 2-8 SU in its last 10 games on the road.

The Cards have won 7 straight SU at home and are 10-2 in their past 12, a main reason why the point spread at was holding through mid-week at -7.


Spread Climbs in Pats vs Bills Odds

After losing two straight games, the New England Patriots will try to get back on track against a team they always have success against when they visit the Buffalo Bills at Ralph Wilson Stadium Sunday.

New England is 18-2 SU and 13-6-1 ATS against the Buffalo Bills since 2002 and 10-2 in their past 12 visits there. The Patriots are 5-0-1 ATS in their last six games on the road and 8-2-1 ATS in their past 11 games as a road favorite.

And they didn't lay a lot of points on the Week 4 opening lines. Most books had them as 3.5-point road favorites but it had been bet up to -4.5 at Bovada by mid-week.


Packers Saints Betting Preview for Week 4

Look for plenty of offense Sunday when the winless New Orleans Saints visit the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field.

Since 1995, all six meetings between these two teams have gone OVER the total, including last season's 42-34 Green Bay victory. The total has gone OVER in four of New Orleans' last six road games and in seven of Green Bay's last eight home games.

The total was sitting around 54, high by NFL standards, but these teams have played six straight head-to-head OVERs. The desperate Saints are just 1-4 ATS in five trips to Lambeau since 1985 and in four games since 2005 when they were dogs of 9 points, they have never won.


Broncos vs Raiders Betting Matchup Report

Fresh off of an upset win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Oakland Raiders will try to continue their success at Mile High with another upset win over the Denver Broncos.

Oakland is 4-0 SU and ATS in its last four games in Denver and is 6-0 ATS in its last six trips to Colorado. The total has gone OVER in five straight meetings between these two teams and in eight of the last 10.

Denver struggles as a favorite and Oakland thrives in the dog role. An interesting bye-week angle has Oakland at 6-1 ATS the past 7 times that their pre-bye week is on road. That is the situation here in Week 4.

The game opened as a PK on the point spread but quickly moved to -3 for the Spartans, who were smacked at home by the Buckeyes in 2006 and 2008. [ See the latest spread and best OSU lines at Bovada ]
