Green Bay vs. Arizona Preseason NFL Odds

When Green Bay played OVER in Week 1 of the NFL preseason, it continued a trend that has seen totals bettors turn a healthy profit over the past few years.

The Packers lost 27-17, but OVER bettors (35) were rewarded again, making it 12 wins in the past 14 Green Bay games in the exhibition schedule.

At home this week against Arizona (where they are favoured by 5.5 points at online shops such as Bovada), expect the OVER bettors to line up again. The OVER is 8-2 in the Pack’s past 10 at home during the preseason.


Eagles vs. Steelers Preseason Preview

The Eagles have all the hype, the Steelers own all the Super Bowl rings.

That’s one reason why oddsmakers at Bovada and other top online sportsbooks have Pittsburgh settled in as 2.5-point home favorites for Thursday’s game.

But 84% of the betting public are on the Eagles, according to the betting consensus here at


Baseball Betting: Dodgers vs. Brewers

Supporters of the Los Angeles Dodgers will look to Clayton Kershaw on Thursday as their team takes on the Brewers in Milwaukee.

Lefthander Kershaw (14-5, 2.72 ERA) has managed to pick up the win in eight of his past 10 trips to the mound, allowing two or fewer earned runs in each of those eight victories.


NASCAR Odds: Pure Michigan 400

Jimmie Johnson and Carl Edwards are the co-favorites on the NASCAR betting lines to take the checkered flag in the Pure Michigan 400 at Michigan International Speedway this weekend.

At Bovada it's Johnson and Edwards at the top of the Sprint Cup betting board to win Sunday afternoon's Michigan event at 7/1 odds, with Denny Hamlin and Kyle Busch both sitting at 8/1 odds to visit Victory Lane at the race this weekend.


MLB Odds: Rays vs. Red Sox

The Boston Red Sox will play host to the Tampa Bay Rays on Wednesday afternoon as the clubs finish their MLB betting series.

John Lackey (11-8, 6.13 ERA) is scheduled to get the ball for Boston on Wednesday, while the Rays counter with David Price (10-10, 3.76 ERA). The Rays are 2-6 in Price's last eight outings.


Super Bowl Favorites Seldom Win

In each of the past five NFL preseasons, either the Indianapolis Colts or the New England Patriots (and in 2009 it was both) have been the Super Bowl favorite.

History tells us that only once in those five seasons did the preseason favorite actually win (Super Bowl XLII, Colts over Bears). That means history tells us there should be value to be had betting Super Bowl futures.

Last year, the Packers entered the season at 10/1 odds, slightly behind the Colts at 8/1. So a $100 wager on the Packers last September would have paid $1,000 in February.


Phillies host D-Backs on MLB odds

The Philadelphia Phillies will send their ace to the mound Tuesday night as they open up a three-game MLB betting series at home against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Roy Halladay (15-4, 2.51 ERA) had his start on Sunday rained out, so he'll be well rested when he takes to the mound on Tuesday. The righthander has picked up the win in each of his last four starts.


Week 8 CFL Betting Odds

The panic button has been pushed in Saskatchewan, and they face a similarly desperate Toronto team in CFL betting action in Week 8 on Thursday night.

Bet365 gives the Argonauts a slight 2.5-point spread advantage at home for this tilt, while the OVER/UNDER is set at 54.


Baseball Betting: Rangers vs. Angels

The Texas Rangers will be looking to extend their lead in the AL West standings on Monday as they begin an MLB betting series against the rival Los Angeles Angels.

MLB Odds Preview: Rockies vs. Cardinals

The Sunday Night Baseball betting matchup this week has the St. Louis Cardinals closing out a home set versus the Colorado Rockies.
