Houston vs Rice NCAA Matchup

The Houston Cougars hope to stay undefeated and keep their dream season alive when they host the Rice Owls this Thursday night.

Rice has won two of the last three SU against Houston and are 4-1 ATS in their last five against the Cougars, but did fall 73-14 the last time they played in Houston.

Case Keenum became college football’s all-time leader in total offense last week with 376 yards passing and six passing touchdowns against Marshall.


NASCAR Betting: Tums Fast Relief 500

Carl Edwards leads the Sprint Cup standings and the NASCAR betting board as the circuit's drivers get set to take on Martinsville Speedway in the Tums Fast Relief 500 on Sunday afternoon.

Edwards is up by 14 points on Matt Kenseth in the driver standings after six Chase events, and as a result he's the 2/3 favorite at Bovada to win the Sprint Cup championship this season. Edwards leads all drivers with 16 Top-5 finishes and 22 Top-10 results through the first 32 races of the 2011 season.


Monday Night Football Prop Odds

The game looks one-sided making the list of Monday Night Football prop odds especially interesting as the Ravens and Jaguars clash tonight.

Baltimore opened as 8.5-point favorites and bettors pushed the point spread up past -10.5 at one online sportsbook (TopBet), which is rare for a road team on national TV. And the total has hovered around 38.5.


Tests for undefeated NCAA teams

Only eight undefeated teams remain after Wisconsin and Oklahoma fell last week, and three of those undefeated teams get extremely tough tests this week on the college football odds board. Who will survive in this dogfight of a season?


World Series Odds: Cards at Rangers

World Series betting continues in Arlington on Monday night with Game 5 between the St. Louis Cardinals and the Texas Rangers.

The Cards hand the ball to ace Chris Carpenter for Monday's contest, while the Rangers counter with C.J. Wilson. In Game 4 on Sunday Texas picked up a 4-0 win to tie up the series at 2-2.


Ravens vs Jaguars MNF Odds

Jacksonville gets a rare Monday Nighter and it's not a spot where they have excelled over the years, going just 2-7 ATS since 1999.

And they face a tough Baltimore team that manhandled the Jets and Texans the past two weeks. The Ravens also boast a 7-1 SU run against the Jaguars.


Panthers, Canadiens on NHL lines

Many didn’t expect the Montreal Canadiens (1-4-2) to be struggling this bad early in the season. They hope a visit from the Florida Panthers (4-3-0), whom the Canadiens have won three straight against, gives them a boost in the win column in NHL betting action on Monday night.

Montreal will be home favorites at 5Dimes in this contest, but the Canadiens have failed to win in three games where they have been the oddsmakers' choice. Florida is 2-3 as an underdog this season, and they did split a pair of games in Montreal last season.


Baseball Betting: Cards at Rangers

The St. Louis Cardinals and Texas Rangers meet again on the World Series betting board on Sunday in Game 4 of the set in Arlington.

Edwin Jackson gets the ball for the Cardinals on Sunday, while the Rangers turn to Derek Holland. In Game 3 on Saturday night St. Louis picked up a victory to take a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven series.


Chargers open as chalk at Jets

When the Jets host the Chargers on Sunday, the Week 7 NFL odds are a contrast in one team coming off a bye facing a team heading into its bye.

It always adds some impetus and handicapping challenges to figure motivation, coaching skills, and other factors. Of note, the OVER is 8-1 in the past nine seasons in pre-bye week games for the Jets, who also happen to be 5-1 ATS in the past 6 seasons in games before a bye.


Packers vs Vikings Line Preview

If the Packers are going to lose in 2011, this is probably not the spot it will happen.

They lead the league in scoring, are 6-2 ATS in the past eight trips to Minnesota, and seem unbeatable. Hence the fat 9.5-point opening point spread, a huge number on the road against a divisional rival.

Green Bay wants to hit the bye week at 7-0 and the OVER has been a consistent bet on them in this situation (6-2 in the past eight seasons before a bye week). Minnesota meanwhile is just 1-12 SU in its past 13 games as an underdog.
