Vikings on a Tear for UNDER Bettors

Teddy Bridgewater Vikings

A battle of poorly performing offenses collide in Week 9 when the St. Louis Rams invade U.S. Bank Stadium for a date with the Minnesota Vikings. The Rams rank 30th in the NFL in total offense, while the Vikes aren’t much better at 29th in that department. St. Louis will be attempting to exact some revenge after 2014’s 34-6 dispiriting Week 1 loss. 

As a result of both teams’ offensive struggles, the UNDER has been cashing in their matchups. The OVER/UNDER is 1-6 in Minny’s first seven games and has paid out in five out of St. Louis’s seven appearances so far.

Minnesota held on for a 23-20 win over division rival Chicago in Week 8, covering the closing -1.5 spread in the process. Teddy Bridgewater’s squad continues to be on fire for bettors this year, going 6-1 ATS – a number which ties them with the Bengals for the most covers in the 2015 campaign.

Heat Have Owned Raptors in Florida

South Beach has not been friendly territory for the Toronto Raptors as of late, but the Dinos will be seeking to exorcise some demons when they take on the Miami Heat at American Airlines Arena in Sunday's NBA action. Toronto is just 1-10 SU in its last 11 games against the Heat in Florida.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone under in the Heat's last five games.
  • The away team is 10-4 ATS in the last 14 games in this matchup.
  • The favored team is 7-2 ATS in the last nine games in this matchup./li>

The Raps have been red-hot out of the gate in the young NBA campaign, winning five in a row before suffering their first loss to the Orlando Magic on Friday. Toronto is 5-1 ATS during that span.

Meanwhile, the Heat are a more middling 3-2 SU but are entering a nice home stretch. Miami plays their next seven games at home, while 20 of their next 29 matchups are in front of the Heat faithful.

Jaguars Have Had Edge ATS vs. Jets

Jaguars wide receiver Hurns

In what’s become a common theme in Jacksonville, the 2015 season could soon become yet another lost one for the Jaguars if the team can’t find ways to string together victories. Gus Bradley’s club will try and get things on the right track in Week 9 opposite the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium. 

The Jags (2-5 SU, 3-4 ATS) are lucky to be playing in the suddenly weak AFC South, but have allowed opponents to put up 207 points while only registering 147 of their own so far this year.

The Jets, who failed to cover the -3 spread in Week 8 by losing 34-20 to the Oakland Raiders, have historically not performed well in this position. In their last 12 games following a SU loss as favorites, New York is a paltry 1-11 ATS.

Falcons on a Four Game ATS Skid

Atlanta Falcons Freeman

It’s been a season to forget for the San Francisco 49ers, as an offseason of turmoil has culminated into a 2-6 record through eight weeks of play. Levi’s Stadium, the Niners’ new plush home, hasn’t exactly done the 49ers any favors when it comes to covering the spread. San Fran is just 3-11 ATS in their last 14 home games – a trend that won’t exactly inspire any confidence in backers of the red and gold ahead of the team’s Week 9’s clash against the Atlanta Falcons in the Golden State.

Atlanta (6-2 SU, 4-4 ATS) has looked considerably better under first year head coach Dan Quinn but has hit a rough patch as of late. The Falcons have failed to cover in four consecutive games after going 4-0 ATS to start the year. 

Atlanta was listed as 8-point chalk in Week 8 but fell to the lowly Tampa Bay Buccaneers 23-20, meaning a date with the down and out 49ers could be just what the doctor ordered for this team to get back on track at the betting window.

PIT Good at Bouncing Back After Losses

Antonio Brown Steelers Wide Receiver

The Oakland Raiders aren’t looking like the same team we’ve seen over the last decade for a multitude of reasons, thanks largely in part to a young offense that’s finding its groove. But in light of Week 8’s 34-20 victory over the New York Jets, Oakland will need to gain some consistency. Derek Carr’s squad, who closed as 3-point underdogs in that game, are just 2-10 SU and ATS in their last 12 games after winning as dogs the previous week.

Pittsburgh lost to division rival Cincinnati last week but suffered an even bigger loss on the field. Star running back Le’Veon Bell was forced to leave the game with a knee injury, and has since been ruled out for the season due to a torn MCL.

One good bit of news for bettors of the Steel Curtain is the club’s ability to bounce back after a loss. Pittsburgh is 8-2 SU and 7-2-1 ATS in their last 10 games after coming up short the previous week.

NBA Betting: Lakers vs Knicks Odds

The rivalry between the New York Knicks and Los Angeles Lakers has lost some of its lustre but it's always entertaining watching the old foes square off, which is the case once again Sunday as the Knicks play host to their West Coast rivals.

Shark Bites
  • The home team is 7-1 SU and ATS in the last eight games in this matchup.
  • The Lakers are 0-6 SU and ATS in their last six games after a win.
  • The total has gone under in the Knicks' last six games as favorites.

New York, who fell to Milwaukee 99-92 in their last game on Friday, has been a nice bet to bounce back lately. The Knickerbockers are 8-1 ATS in their last nine games coming off a loss.

Many NBA pundits have deemed the Lakers to be the worst team in the league and it's hard to argue with that statement thus far. L.A. is 1-4 SU and ATS in its first five games and have looked like a mess on both ends of the floor more often than not, leading to speculation that the seat beneath head coach Byron Scott may be heating up quicker than anticipated.

Red Wings a Good Bet vs Stars

A battle of one of a team on the rise and a longtime staple at the top of the Western Conference standings takes place Sunday when the Dallas Stars travel to Motown for a date with the Detroit Red Wings. The Wings have historically came through for their bettors when playing the Stars, garnering at least one point in their last six against them (5-0-1).

Shark Bites
  • The OVER is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings.
  • The road team is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
  • Red Wings are 1-5 in their last 6 games playing on 1 days rest.

The Wings have won three straight games after going through a slump which saw them go 1-5-1 over the course of seven games. Dallas has rode the high-scoring duo of Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin to a sizzling 11-3-0 record to start the season and have won five of their last six heading into the contest.

The last time the teams met in February produced one of the wildest games in the season last year, as the Wings triumphed over the Stars in overtime by a score of 7-6.

NFL Odds: Patriots Look to Pummel 'Skins

Redskins Garcon

How much chalk is too much chalk? That’s the question oddsmakers have been forced to answer in regards to the Week 9 contest featuring the New England Patriots and Washington Redskins at Gilette Stadium. Sportsbooks in Vegas and offshore opened the Pats as 14-point favorites for the clash, with some even posting numbers as high as -15. 

That’s what happens when you’re as good as the Patriots are. New England has seemingly carried the momentum from Super Bowl XLIX forward and have strung together seven consecutive wins out of the gate, going 4-2-1 ATS during that span. 

In something that’s become the unfortunate norm for ‘Skins fans and backers alike, Washington has been underwhelming to say the least in 2015. Behind new starting quarterback Kirk Cousins, the Redskins have gone 3-4 SU and ATS in their first seven games. 

Washington topped Tampa Bay 31-30 in Week 7 before having a bye in Week 8, which won’t inspire any confidence for Redskins bettors. In their last 10 games after a win, the ‘Skins have collected just one victory the following week.

FSU Struggling When Visiting Clemson

Florida State Jaques

If Florida State wants to win the ACC Atlantic they will need a win over Clemson this Saturday, but the Seminole have struggled in Clemson. FSU is 1-5 SU and ATS in their past six games at Memorial Stadium.

FSU could have easily folded last week coming off a loss to Georgia Tech and without starting quarterback Everett Golson and running back Dalvin Cook, but the Seminoles kept calm and won 45-21 over Syracuse. Backup quarterback Sean Maguire let his play on the field do the talking, with 348 passing yards and three touchdowns, while letting everyone know FSU will be fine if Golson remains out.

Clemson can legitimately run the table with only FSU looking like they could be a bump in the road for the Tigers. In the past two games Clemson has scored 114 points with quarterback Deshaun Watson putting up six touchdowns and no interceptions.
