NASCAR Betting: Ford 400

There are only two drivers left on the Sprint Cup betting board as NASCAR wraps up its 2011 schedule on Sunday with the Ford 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

It's down to either Carl Edwards or Tony Stewart for this year's drivers championship, with Edwards holding down a slim three-point lead in the standings on Stewart heading into the final race of the season. That has him as the -145 favorite at TopBet to win the title this year, with Stewart set as the +115 underdog.


Ball State Northern Illinois Preview

The Northern Illinois Huskies will be looking for their third straight Tuesday night win this week when they host the Ball State Cardinals.

Overall, Northern Illinois has won five straight (4-1 ATS over that stretch), and is 7-3 SU in its last 10 games against Ball State. Quarterback Chandler Harnish threw for 294 yards and two touchdowns and rushed for 151 yards and a touchdown in last Tuesday’s win over Bowling Green.

The Cardinals will try to spoil to the party on Tuesday; they are 6-4 ATS against the number this season, while the Huskies are 5-5 ATS.


Orange highlight NCAAB odds board

Manhattan will travel upstate to play the Syracuse Orange at the Carrier Dome for the fifth time in the history of the New York schools as the two tip off on Monday night in college hoops betting action.

The Jaspers have played Syracuse tight in their short history, but have never gotten a win against the Orange in their building. Syracuse will be home favorites at Bovada and should draw the majority of action on the college basketball betting lines in this contest.


NHL Betting: Sabres vs. Canadiens

The Buffalo Sabres were struck down by the Boston Bruins 6-2 on Saturday night, but they have four wins in the last five heading into Monday night NHL betting action where they take on the Montreal Canadiens.

The NHL odds at 5Dimes will likely favor Montreal as the home team, but the Sabres are just fine as underdogs against a Canadiens team they have enjoyed success against in the recent past.


PK in Patriots vs. Jets Odds

The New England Patriots have lost two straight and the aura of Super Bowl contender is rubbing off as they hit the road in Week 10 for a tough divisional battle against the Jets.

The Pats are underdogs for the first time this season (they were dogged only twice in 2010 as well) and they are 9-3 ATS past 12 games as an NFL underdog. If the line swings to the Patriots during the week, bettors know they are 8-1 ATS past 9 games when a favorite of 2 or less ppoints.


Giants vs 49ers Game Preview

All the San Francisco 49ers fans who continue to bet against the team may finally be learning their lesson here in Week 10.

The NFC West-leading 49ers host the New York Giants, opening as 3.5-point home favorites over a team coming off an emotional high after beating the Patriots. Head to head, the Giants have dominated the series going 5-1-1 ATS past 7 vs SF.

But the 49ers have been excellent this season, winning at a 5-0-1 ATS clip past 6 games at home and rolling to a money-making 7-0 ATS mark the past 7 games as favorites.


NFL Predictions Dominate Week 9

You may have read our NFL Week 9 Scores Prediction article last week in passing, then wondered aloud how the formula actually worked.

Bengals home underdog vs Steelers

Times are changing in Cincinnati and some old trends favoring the Steelers might not matter much in the face of new trends favoring the surging Bengals in Week 10 NFL betting.

The Steelers have historically dominated their AFC North foes, running to a 7-2 ATS run in 9 recent games vs Cincy. Pittsburgh is also 8-1-1 ATS in their past 10 trips to Cincinnati.
