Broncos 5-0 SU & 4-1 ATS Run vs Chiefs

The Denver Broncos are 5-0 SU and 4-1 ATS in their last five games against the Kansas City Chiefs and 12-0 SU and 11-1 ATS in the past four seasons in divisional road games as those rivals prepare to meet on Thursday night this week.

Peyton Manning has especially enjoyed going head-to-head with the Chiefs secondary during his tenure with the Broncos. In four starts against the Chiefs since joining Denver Manning has completed 62.3 percent of his passes while throwing for 11 touchdowns and two interceptions.

The Broncos will need to contain Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce on Thursday, as he went off in Week 1 for Kansas City; Kelce caught six passes for 106 yards and two touchdowns as the Chiefs beat the Houston Texans.

The Kansas City Chiefs sport a record of 1-0 and 1-0 ATS heading into this betting matchup, while the Denver Broncos sit at 1-0 and 1-0 ATS on the season. The over under totals records are 1-0 for the Chiefs and 0-1 for the Broncos.

NFL Week 2 Opening Odds Analysis

One game. That's all it took for the oddsmaker to realize the Denver Broncos are going to be an under the total team this season. That hasn't been the case since Peyton Manning came on board in 2012.

During the two previous seasons, the Broncos had a total of 50 or higher in 21 of their 38 games. The lowest Denver over/under had been 47 during this span - until now.


College Football Week 3 Odds Analysis

The Auburn Tigers are 5-0 straight up over their last five games in September but are 1-4 against the spread over that stretch. Auburn will be on the road this Saturday going up against the LSU Tigers in Baton Rouge.

LSU opened as a 6.5-point favorite, but was quickly bet down to -7.5 at sportsbooks including 5Dimes. Auburn has not looked sharp at all so far this season and needed overtime to beat Jacksonville State as a 39-point favorite at home


Chargers 5-0-1 ATS September Road Run

The San Diego Chargers have started the season well over the past several years, posting a 4-2 SU and a 5-0-1 ATS record in their last six September road games. The Chargers will be away from home once again this Sunday when they visit the Cincinnati Bengals.

The Chargers offense showed up big time in Week 1 against the Detroit Lions, with Philip Rivers throwing for 404 yards and Keenan Allen tallying 166 receiving yards, both league highs.

Bengals backers surely enjoyed Cincy's Week 1 win over the Raiders for the continued emergence of tight end Tyler Eifert. The Notre Dame alum had nine receptions for 104 yards and two touchdowns in that game for the Bengals.

The Cincinnati Bengals are 1-0 so far on the season, and 1-0 ATS vs the point spread. The San Diego Chargers, meanwhile, are 1-0 and 1-0 ATS. Those over under betting have seen Cincinnati go 1-0 and the San Diego Chargers go 1-0 on the totals.

White Sox 1-5 in Samardzija’s Past Six

Jeff Samardzija is not having the season the Chicago White Sox envisioned when they signed him this past offseason, with the pitcher posting a 1-5 record with a 6.03 ERA in his past six starts. The Sox will host the Oakland A’s, Samardzija’s former team, Tuesday.

‘The Shark’ has been a bad omen for the Sox when he takes to the bump at U.S. Cellular Field lately as the team has dropped Samardzija’s past six starts at home.

On the other side the Atheltics will send Aaron Brooks to the mound, who has a 1-3 record with a 5.32 ERA since being acquired and put into the rotation for Oakland on July 28.

Florida State is Road Favorite at Eagles

The Florida State Seminoles will be looking for their sixth straight win over Boston College when they travel to Alumni Stadium for Friday night's matchup with the Eagles.

The Seminoles moved to 2-0 SU on the season with a 34-14 win over South Florida in Week 2 but failed to cover as 28.5-point favorites, dropping them to 4-12 ATS since the start of last season.

The 2-0 Eagles hope to tally their first three-game SU win streak since 2013, and their first home victory against Florida State since 2009.

Boston College demolished the Howard Bison 76-0 in Week 2 following a closer than expected 24-3 win over Maine in their season opener, failing to cover as 27-point favorites, but remain a respectable 8-5 ATS in their past 13 games.

MNF Betting: Eagles Sit as Road Favorite

A pair of teams that didn't meet expectations last year hope to turn things around in 2015 starting with their season opener as the Philadelphia Eagles visit the Atlanta Falcons in the first game of the Monday Night Football doubleheader after going 1-3 against the spread in their last four to close out 2014.

The Eagles finished second to the Dallas Cowboys in the NFC East last year despite a 10-6 record and missed out on the postseason by dropping three of four down the stretch.

They then signed former Dallas running back DeMarco Murray in the offseason and traded LeSean McCoy to the Buffalo Bills.

However, the Falcons were an even bigger disappointment last season, finishing with a 6-10 mark in a division where the champion ended up with a losing record.

Surprisingly, Atlanta had a better spread record at 7-9 and should challenge for the NFC South title this year if the defense can improve and quarterback Matt Ryan gets more from the team's running game.

The Atlanta Falcons sport a record of 6-10 and 7-9 ATS heading into this betting matchup, while the Philadelphia Eagles sit at 10-6 and 10-6 ATS on the season. The over under totals records are 6-10 for the Falcons and 10-5-1 for the Eagles.

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.
