Hawks Historically Love Facing Heat

Atlanta Hawks Jeff Teague

The Atlanta Hawks and the new look Miami Heat are scheduled to renew acquaintances in South Beach Tuesday evening, which means the Heat will be seeking to exorcise some past demons. Atlanta has dominated this series as of late, claiming six in a row over Miami heading into the clash while going 5-0-1 ATS during that span.

Shark Bites
  • The away team is 2-7 SU in the last nine games and 1-5 ATS in the last six games in this matchup.
  • The Hawks are 2-8 SU in their last 10 games as road underdogs.
  • The total has gone OVER in seven of the Hawks' last nine games as underdogs.

Miami (2-1 SU) is coming off a convincing 109-89 victory over the Houston Rockets on Sunday which saw them come all the way back from a 63-44 deficit at halftime. Atlanta, meanwhile, has gotten off to a 3-1 SU start and has looked good in the process, holding opponents to an average of 98.2 points per game under head coach Mike Budenholzer’s solid defensive system.

The Hawks opened in the +3 ballpark at sportsbooks which will likely appeal to their backers. Atlanta is 4-0 ATS in their last four matchups against the Heat when listed as underdogs.

Bradley Favored to be Next Coach Fired

BREAKING: The Tenneessee Titans have fired Ken Whisenhunt and replaced him with Mike Mularkey. Updated odds to come shortly.

The axe came down on former Miami Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin two weeks ago, a move that led to the ‘Fins performing considerably better under interim head coach Dan Campbell (a 38-10 drubbing of the Tennessee Titans in Week 6).

SN: NFL Week 9 Opening Odds Analysis

Only once during the last seven years have the Washington Redskins finished above .500.

But you would have to go back to 2007 to find the last time the Redskins were two-touchdown underdogs. That was against New England, which finished that year 16-0 during the regular season.

College Football Week 10 Expert Picks

The Temple Owls are 8-1 straight up and 7-2 against the spread in their last nine games. The Owls will try to continue their strong season this Friday night on the road against the Southern Methodist Mustangs.

Temple is a 14-point favorite on Saturday night according to online sportsbook 5Dimes. SMU has taken some strides in the right direction this season, but is still just 1-7 SU with a 1-4 ATS record over its last five games.

Buccaneers Failing to Cover at Home

Tampa Bay Quarterback Winston

The New York Giants were on the wrong end of a wild 52-49 shootout with the New Orleans Saints in Week 8, which continued a troubling trend for bettors and fans of the G-Men alike as the NFL season reaches the halfway point. Including Sunday’s loss, New York is now 0-7 SU in its last seven contests in the month of November.

New York’s defense was exploited by Drew Brees in the form of seven passing touchdowns, which shouldn’t surprise anyone considering how the unit has performed this season. The Giants’ defense is ranked last in the NFL, thanks to opposing offenses averaging 428.2 yards per game during that span. 

The Bucs (3-4 SU, 4-3 ATS) have been a much better bet on the road compared to at home. Tampa is 1-2 at Raymond James Stadium, compared to 3-1 ATS away from home.

Bills vs Dolphins Week 9 Odds

Lesean Mccoy Buffalo Bills Running Back

The Miami Dolphins enjoyed back to back solid victories after recently showing former head coach Joe Philbin the door, but came back down to earth in Week 8 thanks to a 36-7 Thursday Night Football clobbering at the hands of the New England Patriots.

Interim bench boss Dan Campbell will be looking for a much better result from his team in Week 9 against another divisional rival, the Buffalo Bills. The Bills, who opened as field goal favorites at most sportsbooks, have been one of the most inconsistent teams in the NFL this season and are on a mini two-game losing streak. The good news for Bills backers is Buffalo has historically been able to bounce back at the betting window, going 11-2 ATS in their last 13 games after suffering consecutive losses.

The perennially dominant New England Patriots appear to be the class of the AFC East once again, but considering the logjam in the standings between the ‘Fins, Bills and Jets, this matchup could be a difference maker at the end of the year in the Wild Card race.

Titans-Saints Week 9 Betting Odds

Drew Brees New Orleans Saints

Just when it looked like the New Orleans Saints weren’t going to be able to contend in 2015, Sean Payton’s club has picked up three consecutive victories ahead of Week 9’s clash against the Tennessee Titans in the Bayou State. The Saints (4-4 SU, 4-3-1 ATS) edged the New York Giants 52-49 in a wild showdown last week thanks to an amazing seven touchdowns from veteran signal caller Drew Brees.

The Titans weren’t expected to contend this season, but the club’s 1-6 record leaves a lot to be desired for its fans. The returns on No. 2 overall pick Marcus Mariota have been great so far, but the Oregon product hasn’t seen the field since Week 6 due to a nagging knee injury. Backup QB Zach Mettenberger hasn’t performed up to snuff in his place, tossing three interceptions starting under center for the Titans. Mettenberger is now 0-8 in his career as an NFL starter.

Tennessee will have a new look on the sidelines for this game after former head coach Ken Whisenhunt was relieved of his duties in the middle of the week. Taking over as interim bench boss will be Mike Mularkey.

To say the Saints have lived and died by their offense would be a massive understatement. New Orleans ranks second in the league in total offense and 30th in defense. It’s a stark contrast to the Titans, who are 31st in offense and fifth in defense.

NBA Betting: Mavericks vs Raptors Odds

The Toronto Raptors are 3-0 for the third time in franchise history and will look to open the 2015/16 NBA campaign with four straight wins for the first time in franchise history Tuesday evening against the Dallas Mavericks in the Lone Star State. The Mavericks have historically enjoyed playing host to Canada’s lone NBA squad, owning a 15-4 lifetime record against the Raps at American Airlines Center.

Shark Bites
  • The Raptors are 3-9 ATS in their last 12 games after consecutive ATS wins.
  • The total has gone OVER in the Mavericks' last five games at home.
  • The Mavericks are 0-4 SU in their last four games after a win.

Toronto is beginning a road swing that’s forcing them to play 10 of their next 12 games away from the Air Canada Centre. The Raptors were in the middle of the pack in terms of producing on the road last year, finishing the season with a 22-19 SU road record.

The Mavs haven’t been producing for their bettors early in the season as underdogs on home court. Dirk Nowitzki and company are 4-14 ATS in their last 18 home games when tabbed as underdogs – a trend that won’t inspire much confidence in Mavericks backers considering they opened +1.5 at most sportsbooks.
