Spartans Badgers in Big Ten Clash

In one of the most exciting matchups of the week, the Wisconsin Badgers get their first big road test of the season when they visit the Michigan State Spartans.

The home team has won the last six games in this Big Ten rivalry; will Michigan State keep that trend alive and end another undefeated season this week?

Wisconsin has won every game this season by at least 31 points, including last week’s 59-7 win over Indiana in which Montee Ball rushed for 142 yards and three touchdowns.


USC vs Notre Dame Odds Preview

One of college football’s classic rivalries will continue this Saturday when the USC Trojans visit the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.

Notre Dame beat USC for the first time since 2001 last season when they won 20-16 at the Coliseum. The Irish have not defeated USC in South Bend since 2001.

Tommy Rees has settled in well to the starting quarterback role for Notre Dame, passing for four touchdowns in their last game against Air Force.


Saturday Setup: Suspensions at LSU

For the second straight week in college football, suspensions dominated the news late in the week. Key players will be out of two of this weekend’s biggest games.

Here’s a look at those suspensions as well as some other noteworthy news and betting angles in college football this Saturday.

Line Moves: Chargers Chalk vs. Jets

While most of the games on this week’s NFL betting card have had a line movement of only a half-point or none at all so far, five have seen significant line movements of two or more points.

Here’s an inside look at those five games with the significant line movements in Week 7. From these line movements, it would appear that football bettors were not too impressed with last week’s Monday Night Football game between New York and Miami.

San Diego Chargers @ New York Jets (from -1.5 to +2.0 at TopBet)


Line Moves: Alabama Bigger Favorites

Last week, as is often the case in college football, there were major line movements of over four points all over the board. But for whatever reason, this week’s biggest line movements are each only by a field goal or less. Here’s a look at the four games with the biggest line movements in Week 8.

Illinois @ Purdue (from -6.5 to -3.5 at 5Dimes)


Sabres, Bolts on NHL betting lines

The Buffalo Sabres are off to a terrific start and face off on Saturday night against the Tampa Bay Lightning, who after a deep run in last season’s playoffs have struggled out of the gate.

The Sabres are scoring at a much more rapid pace than their southern foes, but they will be likely road underdogs at 5Dimes in this NHL betting matchup.


Under predicted in Browns vs Seahawks

A pair of teams that rank near the bottom of key offensive and defensive stat categories battle in Cleveland as the rested Seahawks come to town as small underdogs.

Good luck finding any meaningful trends in the head-to-head history. They have only met three times, with a close low-scoring, a close high-scoring game and a blowout in the mix.

Interestingly, Seattle comes off a bye week where they have traditionally struggled (2-10 ATS past 12 years following a bye). But they hit their bye with momentum, shocking the Giants on the road back in Week 5.


NCAA odds: WVU favored at Syracuse

The West Virginia Mountaineers will try to keep their Big East title run intact Friday night when they head on the road to face the Syracuse Orange.

West Virginia is 8-2 SU and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games against Syracuse, but the Orange broke an eight-game losing streak last season with a 19-14 upset win at West Virginia.

In their last game against UConn, West Virginia’s Geno Smith passed for 450 yards and four touchdowns.
