BAL Yet to Cover the Spread This Season

Joe Flacco Baltimore Ravens

The Baltimore Ravens were a trendy offseason pick to take a deep playoff run this season, but five weeks into the NFL season the team is 1-4 SU and 0-4-1 ATS. The Ravens will visit the lowly San Francisco 49ers Sunday.

The Ravens defense has been unable to stop opponents from scoring this season with teams averaging 27.4 points per game against Baltimore, which is 24th in the NFL. Opposing quarterbacks have thrived against the Ravens with QBs throwing nine touchdowns and just three interceptions. 

There may be no team in more disarray than the 49ers. San Francisco has averaged a league low 15 points per game to go along with the second worst passing game in football (178.2 yards per game).

Chargers Failing to Cover vs Packers

Chargers Quarterback Rivers

The San Diego Chargers have been terrible at covering the spread this season with a 1-4 ATS record this season. Those numbers get worse for the Chargers when they face the Green Bay Packers, like they will this Sunday, with San Diego going 0-6 ATS in their past six against the Pack.

The Chargers offense has been almost entirely reliant on quarterback Phillip Rivers this season with the signal caller accounting for over 75 percent of the team’s offensive yardage. 

A lot of talk has been around the play of quarterback Aaron Rodgers for the Packers, but the defense has been relentless this season. The Packers are second in the NFL in sacks (20.0) and interceptions (8). Green Bay has also held opponents to 16.2 points per game, good for the third fewest in the NFL.

Seahawks vs Panthers Betting Outlook

Bobby Wagner Seattle Seahawks

The Seattle Seahawks are coming off a narrow loss to the Cincinnati Bengals last week, but more notably the team failed to cover for their seventh time in their past eight games with a 1-5-2 ATS record in that span. The ‘Hawks will play host to the Carolina Panthers Sunday with backers hoping they can finally get it right.

The Seahawks should have won their Week 5 contest with the Bengals, but the defense was unable to maintain a 17-point, fourth quarter lead and Seattle lost by three.  The Seahawks offense completely stalled in the fourth quarter and overtime scoring no points and punting the ball six times.

The Panthers have opened the season 4-0, but those four opponents have a combined 5-15 record so far with only the Tampa Bay Buccaneers recording two wins on the season through five weeks.

Arrieta Aims to Extend Supremacy vs Mets

At this point it has almost become clichéd, but the Chicago Cubs have still yet to lose a start when Jake Arrieta starts since July 25. Arrieta will face off against the New York Mets Sunday, a team he had great success against this season, with the Cubs trying to even up the NLDS 1-1.

Arrieta is coming off his worst start in recent memory with the near unhittable ace allowing four earned runs, something he had not done since June 15. The Cy Young candidate has taken to the rubber twice this season against the Mets posting a 2-0 record with a 1.13 ERA, though both of those games came in the first half of the season when New York was a much different team then they are now.

The Mets will start rookie hurler Noah Syndergaard opposite Arrieta. ‘Thor,’ as Sundergaard is called, is coming off his first relief experience of his career Thursday when he threw 12 of his 13 fastballs at 99 mile per hour or higher. Syndergaard has only faced the Cubs once in his career, but he was beaten up more than usual as he allowed three earned runs and six hits through 5.1 innings.

Sunday Night Football - Deflategate Prop

Tom Brady Smiling

Just when the whole Deflategate controversy was finally starting to quiet down, the Patriots will invade Indianapolis for Sunday Night Football and the controversy will likely be a central topic leading up to kickoff.


Sunday Night Shootout? NE vs IND Odds

Tom Brady New England Patriots

The New England Patriots and Indianapolis Colts have had forged one of the best rivalries in the NFL over the last decade, but the two clubs could not be more different when it comes to performing at the betting window so far in the 2015 season.

There’s been no sign of a Super Bowl hangover in New England as the Pats have come out of the gate red-hot in the form of a perfect 4-0 record (3-1 ATS). Indy is 3-2 SU and are coming off a pair of victories led by elder statesman Matt Hasselbeck, but rank among the worst bets in the league at 1-4 ATS.

Colts star QB Andrew Luck has been sidelined with a shoulder injury but could make his return to action in the Sunday Nighter. Indianapolis released third-string quarterback Josh Johnson on Monday, leading many to speculate that Luck will indeed be ready to go.

Bengals Continue Dominance SU & ATS

Giovani Bernard Cincinnati Bengals

With a win over the Seattle Seahawks last week, the Cincinnati Bengals have gotten off to their best start to a season in over a decade. Not only are the Bengals an impressive 5-0 SU, they are also a near perfect 4-0-1 ATS this season. Next up for Cincy is a trip to Buffalo to take on the inconsistent Bills on Sunday.

Anyone who doubted quarterback Andy Dalton before this season has certainly changed their tune, as the Bengals signal caller leads the NFL in passing yards and QB rating. Dalton has had help from an explosive group of receivers, with each of the Bengals top four pass catchers averaging 13.0 yards per reception or more.

The Bills are coming off what can only be described as the ugliest win of Week 5. Buffalo won a 14-13 snoozefest against the Tennessee Titans in a game where quarterback Tyrod Taylor completed 10 passes for 109 yards.

Super Computer Week 6 Contest Picks

The OddsShark Super Computer is coming off its worst week of the season with a 1-3-1 record in the Super Contest.

The Super Computer has managed to stay above the .500 point thanks to some solid picks leading into Week 5, but a big Week 6 is needed to catch up in the Team OddsShark contest.


Cubs vs Mets - NLCS Game 1 Odds

The New York Mets will need to overcome some troubling demons if they want to make it past the Chicago Cubs to the World Series. The Mets have lost all seven of their meetings with the Cubs this season, with New York being outscored 27-11 in those games.

The Cubs will send Jon Lester to the mound in Game 1, despite Jake Arrieta having enough rest to go. Lester has faced off against the Mets twice this season with the leftie throwing 13.0 innings while allowing only 10 hits and three earned runs.

The Mets struggled to form any offense against the Cubs this season with only two batters registering multiple hits through those seven games. However, all seven of those games came during the first half of the season. In the first half of the season the Mets averaged 3.5 runs per game, but jumped to 5.1 runs in the second half.
