NFL Week 9 Prop Bets

Michael Vick returns to quarterback the Eagles once again this week, giving props bettors another chance to cash in on the elusive QB's arm.

Vick hasn't suited up for the Eagles since he was sandwich-tackled by the Redskins in Week 4. Since then Kevin Kolb has filled in and the Eagles' offense has continued to chug along quite well, ranking fifth overall. Throwing Vick back into the mix this weekend, as well as concussed wideout DeSean Jackson, should  keep things humming.


NBA Weekend Wagering Preview

Friday night’s matchup between the Miami Heat and the New Orleans Hornets pits one of the favorites to win the NBA Championship this year (Miami) against one of the three remaining undefeated teams in the NBA (New Orleans).

Miami is 4-1 SU and ATS this season, and has won four straight (all by double-digits) since losing their season opener at Boston. New Orleans is 4-0 SU and ATS, including road wins over San Antonio and Houston. New Orleans has had a great season to this point, but Miami has looked unbelievable, and may be the play here as a road favorite.


NFL Week 9 Weather Impact

It’s going to be a long cold rainy day for the Seattle Seahawks this Sunday when they host the New York Giants. With Matt Hasselbeck out and Charlie Whitehurst in for Seattle, the Giants look like they’re a lock to cover the 7-point spread on the road.


NHL Weekend Betting Odds

The Bruins are on a roll, and at +125 against a Washington team they seem to own it might be the best upset bet of the night on Friday with the Caps favorites at -145.

Boston swept Washington in a home-and-home series earlier this year with Tim Thomas making 31 and 38 saves, respectively. Even with the Washington firepower, it might be worth a look at the UNDER.


NCAA Football Betting Week 10

The Crimson Tide have a chip on their collective shoulder after South Carolina ruined their perfect season and oddsmakers expect them to take it out on LSU, favoring Alabama by 6.5 points on the road this weekend.

Considering how bad LSU’s offense is, that number doesn’t seem all that crazy. The Tigers rank outside the national top 100 in offensive yards per game, which is insane considering their record. The problem is quarterbacking; Jordan Jefferson has been terrible, throwing two touchdown passes versus eight interceptions.


Randy Moss Titans Props

While his relevance on the field and in fantasy football leagues is suffering, Randy Moss remains perfectly relevant in betting circles.

Online sportsbook Bovada posted a trio of Randy Moss props (one for each team he has played for in the past month) predicting his effectiveness with his new team, the Tennessee Titans.

Tennessee enjoys a bye week, but their hot young receiver Kenny Britt has already been ruled out of the Week 10 game against Miami. That opens the door for Moss to have ann immediate impact.


NFL Week 9 Line Moves

After having a couple of days to mull over and bet the 13-game NFL board this week, bettors have moved the lines on three games by a full point or more. Two of these three big movements are on favorites, which is no surprise after their 9-4 ATS performance last week.


Jackets Hokies Game Odds

Given all the excitement surrounding high-powered Georgia Tech over the last few years, it may surprise some bettors to see them appear as 13-point underdogs travelling to Virginia Tech on Thursday night. But the truth is that Georgia Tech doesn’t carry a ton of momentum into this matchup.

The Yellow Jackets’ last game was a 27-13 defeat against Clemson the week before a bye. Georgia Tech ran for 242 yards. That may look like a huge number but, based on Georgia Tech’s lofty standards, it wasn’t.


World Series Betting Review

The Giants have shaken the monkey of 56 years off their back and now wear the title of World Champions – and they did it as +110 series underdogs.

Edgar Renteria went deep for a three-run home run in leading the Giants in the series-clinching 3-1 victory in Game 5 over the Texas Rangers on Monday. He also did the same in his other World Series victory, when he drove in the winning run for the Florida Marlins in 1997. Renteria batted .412 in the series and collected the MVP award for his heroics.


Breeders Cup Classic Preview

The most anticipated race in the Breeders Cup is the Breeders Cup Classic on Saturday afternoon when the unbeaten Zenyatta will try to make it a perfect 20 for 20.  She is the 8-5 morning line favorite in a field of 12 for the $5 million dollar classic.
