MNF Odds: Niners Set to Take on Vikings

Two teams heading in opposite directions will meet at Levi's Stadium in the second game of the NFL's season-opening doubleheader on Monday Night Football as the San Francisco 49ers host the Minnesota Vikings looking to break a six-game losing streak against the spread.

The 49ers were a total disaster last year, going 8-8 straight-up and 5-11 versus the number. They started playing poorly following rumors that head coach Jim Harbaugh was leaving to lead his alma mater, the Michigan Wolverines.

That obviously became a reality, and now new head coach Jim Tomsula inherits a squad void of two of its top two tacklers, both of whom retired due to injuries in Patrick Willis and Chris Borland.

San Francisco is also without running back Frank Gore, who signed with the Indianapolis Colts in the offseason. Meanwhile, Minnesota gets back one of the franchise's best players of all time, running back Adrian Peterson, who missed most of last season due to a personal-conduct suspension.

The Vikings were much-improved in 2014 under first-year head coach Mike Zimmer and hope to take the next step by posting a winning record after going 7-9 straight-up but an impressive 10-6 against the spread, including 5-1 in the last six.

The Minnesota Vikings will try to spoil to the party on Monday; they are 10-6 ATS against the spread this season, while the San Francisco 49ers are 5-11 ATS. Minnesota is 6-10 on the over under betting totals; San Francisco is 5-11.

Clemson 5-1 ATS on Road in September

The Clemson Tigers are 5-1 ATS in their last six games on the road in September as they travel to Louisville to take on the Cardinals in their first ACC conference matchup of the season on Thursday night.

Clemson strengthened its bid for a place in the Top 10 of the AP Top 25 with dominating wins over Wofford and Appalachian State to open the season, extending their ATS win streak to four games, but are winless ATS in their last five against ACC conference rivals.

The Cardinals face Clemson still searching for their first SU win of the season after coming up short 31-24 against Auburn in Week 1 before getting shocked 34-31 by the Houston Cougars on the weekend in their home opener as 13.5-point favorites.

Louisville remains a solid 10-1 SU in their last 11 games against ACC opponents, but has failed to cover in their last three games.

Nover: 49ers Experience Big Line Moves

The San Francisco 49ers had an offseason from hell losing key players from their defense and offensive line. New coach Jim Tomsula couldn't have been dealt a worse hand taking over from Jim Harbaugh.

This has resulted in a historic downward line movement in San Francisco's regular-season over/under win total. The 49ers opened as high a 8 1/2 victories at some bet shops. They are now down to as low as six victories.


A's at 7-2 in Last Nine Gray Road Starts

The Oakland Athletics are 7-2 in Sonny Gray's last nine starts on the road as he takes the bump for the team on Monday night when they visit the Chicago White Sox.

The righthander has posted an 8-3 record with a 1.72 ERA while allowing opponents to hit just .203 when in visiting ballparks this season. However, the A's were swept by the White Sox in their lone series this season, with Chicago outscoring Oakland 18-12.

The White Sox are expected to counter with John Danks, who has fared well against the A’s in his career; in 12 career starts against Oakland, Danks is 7-3 while sporting a 2.40 ERA.

Yankees Sitting at 1-5 in Past Six Games

The New York Yankees are having a September to forget as they have dropped five of their past six games while posting a 6-6 record so far this month. The Bronx Bombers will hope to rectify their losing ways and stay in the AL East race when they visit the Tampa Bay Rays Monday.

The Yankees and Rays met earlier in September with the Yankees taking a tight series 2-1. Despite the Yankees fighting for the division crown they only outscored the Rays 13-9 over that three-game set.

CC Sabathia will take the mound for the Yankees, with plenty of experience against the Rays. Over his career the big lefthander has faced the Rays 37 times with a 13-14 record and a 3.83 ERA. Those numbers include one start this season when Sabathia pitched seven innings while surrendering three earned runs.

South Carolina is 4-1 Past 5 vs Georgia

The South Carolina Gamecocks will be looking to improve to 5-1 SU in recent matchups with Georgia when they visit the Georgia Bulldogs on Saturday in a key battle between SEC East division rivals.

The Gamecocks are coming off a disappointing 26-22 loss to upstart Kentucky as 7-point favorites in Week 2, but are 5-1 ATS in their last six games against the Bulldogs.

The UNDER is 6-0 in South Carolina's last six games, with the Gamecocks holding opponents to just 21.2 points per game during the stretch.

The Bulldogs enter Week 3 riding a three-game win SU streak, but are just 2-2 ATS in their last four, and have seen the point total play UNDER in four of their past six despite averaging 38.7 points per game in those contests.

Michigan State on Six-Game Win Streak

Following a nail-biting 31-28 win over Oregon last weekend, the Michigan State Spartans will be shooting for a seventh consecutive SU win when they play host to the Air Force Falcons at Spartan Stadium on Saturday.

The win over Oregon improved the Spartans to 12-1 SU in their last 13 games, but the squad has yet to post an ATS win this season and are 2-3 ATS in their last five at home.

The Falcons ride a four-game SU and ATS win streak into their first ever meeting with Michigan State, and are a middling 2-2 SU and ATS in their last four games against Big Ten opponents.

However, Air Force have been a strong bet as underdogs since last season, going 4-1 SU and ATS in their last five games.

Rugby World Cup: New Zealand Favorites

Defending Rugby World Cup winner New Zealand is the favorite at the online sportsbooks to win the tournament for the second straight time as teams prepare for the event which runs from September 18 to October 31 in England.


Giants on an ATS Skid vs Rival Cowboys

The New York Giants will try to snap a four-game series losing streak against the Dallas Cowboys and cover the spread for the fourth time in five games overall when they visit Arlington for a key NFC East matchup in the season opener on Sunday Night Football.

The Giants are also 1-3 against the spread in the past four meetings after going 6-2 straight-up and ATS in the previous eight games between the teams.

The Cowboys are coming off their first NFC East title since 2009 and have also seen the OVER cash in the last five meetings along with 10 of the past 12. Dallas, though, lost NFL rushing leader DeMarco Murray to the Philadelphia Eagles, another division rival hoping to top both teams in 2015.

New York won the NFC East once during that stretch as well, taking it in 2011 with a 9-7 mark en route to becoming the first team with less than 10 wins to become Super Bowl champion. The Giants are hoping to rebound from a pair of losing seasons and also went 7-9 ATS last year.

The Dallas Cowboys currently sport a record of 13-5, and have posted a corresponding betting slate of 11-7 ATS. The New York Giants are 6-10 and 7-9 ATS. Betting totals have seen the Dallas Cowboys post a 9-8-1 over under record this season, while the New York Giants have gone 10-6 against the number.

Packers are Road Chalk vs Bears Sunday

The Green Bay Packers are among the favorites to win Super Bowl 50 despite losing wide receiver Jordy Nelson to a season-ending knee injury, and they will begin their run against the Chicago Bears as solid road chalk in their season opener on the road Sunday at Soldier Field.

The Packers are 11/2 to win the Super Bowl and started last year 0-2-1 against the spread before covering their next four games en route to winning the NFC North for the fourth straight year.

They swept the Bears and covered both meetings as well, including a 55-14 rout at Lambeau Field that spelled the beginning of the end for former Chicago head coach Marc Trestman.

John Fox replaces Trestman and will be tasked with trying to help the Bears beat Green Bay for the first time since 2013. That road win was the first for Chicago in the series since 2010, as the Packers are 9-1 in the past 10 meetings and have covered eight of the last nine.

Supporters of the Green Bay Packers have seen them go 13-5 and 10-7-1 ATS so far this season, while the Chicago Bears are at 5-11 and 7-9 ATS. In totals betting, the Bears are 8-8, while the Packers are 12-6.
