Calgary killed Hamilton 55-24 and BC also stayed in the playoff race with a big 23-17 win over Saskatchewan.


NBA Week Betting Preview

NFL Week 8 Wagering Recap

After dominating four of the last five weeks, underdogs finally received the short end of the stick as favorites came to play. Looks like all they needed to get back on track was a bit of home cooking.

Betting favorites went 8-4 ATS on Sunday, thanks in part to having home-field advantage in all but one of the 12 games played on the day. Miami -1.0 was the only road favorite of the day, and they won and covered against the Cincinnati Bengals.


World Series Game 5 Odds

It’s up to Cliff Lee to rescue Texas on Monday. Oddsmakers believe that Lee will revert back to his usual postseason self on the mound, as the Rangers are listed as a -170 favorite against the +160 underdog Giants for Game 5.


NCAA Football Betting Recap

Rude awakenings were the theme for Week 9, as two undefeated NCAA betting juggernauts took serious beatings. Oddsmakers deserve credit for correctly forecasting Missouri and Michigan State’s falls from grace.

In the Missouri/Nebraska game, most books closed with Nebraska favored at home by as many as eight points. The Cornhuskers covered with a 31-17 victory; they led 24-0 after the first quarter. The Tigers shaved the deficit down to 10 points but never got closer than that.


Monday Night Football Betting

Can the Texans deliver a big betting upset when they roll into Indianapolis to play the Colts on Monday night?

When the Texans hosted the Colts in Week 1 they surprised Indy 34-24 as a 1.5-point underdog. Arian Foster broke on to the scene in a big way and shredded the Colts' defense for 231 rushing yards and three touchdowns on 33 carries. With Foster running wild the Texans' pass attack took a back seat and Matt Schaub passed for only 107 yards with a touchdown and an interception.


West Virginia UConn Betting

Connecticut will try for their first-ever win against West Virginia as they host the Mountaineers on Friday night, but they will do as 6-point underdogs.

The Huskies have been far better at home this college football betting season as they have gone 3-0 compared to 0-4 on the road. Both teams are coming off disappointing losses last week so each should be fired up for this prime time matchup on ESPN 2.


NFL Week 8 Betting Preview

Coming off their bye week with a five-game winning streak intact the New York Jets look to continue soaring this week when they host the Green Bay Packers.

Not only have the Jets won their last five games, they've also gone a perfect 5-0 ATS in those contests. Before entering their bye in Week 7 the Jets took care of Denver 24-20 as 3.5-point chalk. LaDainian Tomlinson continued to prove all the doubters wrong by rushing for a pair of touchdowns, and Mark Sanchez passed for 198 yards with a TD and two picks.


NFL Week 8 Props Bets

The NFL Week 8 props are all about quarterbacks as Brett Favre prepares to play on a gimpy ankle, Jon Kitna steps in for Tony Romo, and Troy Smith gets his shot as a starting quarterback.

Favre will lead the Vikings onto the field in New England on Sunday - if his fractured ankle allows it, that is. As long as Favre gets the start against the Patriots there is a nice list of prop bets that bettors should take advantage of over at Bodog.


MLB World Series Game 3 Odds

The Texas Rangers' dreams haven’t died just yet, but with 40 of 51 teams winning the World Series after going up by two games it isn’t looking very good. Odds makers believe the home crowd will be enough to push the Rangers over the Giants, giving them a big vote of confidence – as they are listed as -145 favorites when the series switches to Rangers Ballpark for Game 3 on Saturday.
