NHL Betting: Red Wings vs. Bruins

An Original Six matchup between the Detroit Red Wings and the Boston Bruins highlights the NHL betting board for Friday night this week.

Boston will be likely home favorites in this contest at 5Dimes, but expect Detroit to come out hard against a Bruins team they don’t see very often. The Red Wings have won three straight head-to-head and four of the last five in this betting rivalry.



Cowboys vs Dolphins Thanksgiving Pick

Even Miami Dolphin fans are wondering how their team has won three straight and even the stoutest Dolphin bettors might be keeping their wallet closed on Thanksgiving as they visit the Dallas Cowboys.

With Dallas favored by more than a TD, the total bet is attracting lots of interest as Miami is 9-1 on the season favoring the UNDER (all 5 road games). The OVER has been trending in Dallas home games (11-3 past 14).


Ravens vs 49ers Thursday Betting

The San Francisco 49ers get another chance to prove their 9-game win streak is no fluke when they visit the tough Baltimore Ravens Thursday in Week 12 NFL betting action.

The 49ers get plenty of respect from the oddsmakers who made them 3-point opening line underdogs. That basically gives the Ravens a 3-point edge for home field, which is significant since they are 15-1 SU in their past 16 home games.


Lions vs Packers Thursday Preview

The Green Bay Packers look for an 11-0 start against a team they have dominated the past decade.

The Pack is 17-3 SU in their past 20 meetings with the Lions, but lost here 7-3 a year ago in the game where Aaron Rodgers was lost to a concussion. In four prior trips to Detroit, they averaged nearly 40 PPG.

Green Bay has won eight straight road games while the Lions are 6-1 ATS past 7 games as an underdog (OVER is 10-2-1 past 13 when they are dogged by sportsbooks.


Grey Cup Odds: Win vs. BC

The final CFL betting matchup of the season has Winnipeg, the best defense in the East, facing B.C., the best defense in the West, on the Grey Cup odds board in Vancouver on Sunday night.

B.C. defeated Edmonton 40-23 in the Western Final and covered the 6.5-point spread, while the game’s combined score went OVER the posted total of 50 set by oddsmakers. Winnipeg dumped Hamilton 19-3 in the Eastern Final, covering the 3.5-point spread with the game paying out to UNDER bettors in totals betting.


NFL Opening Lines: Packers Favored

Football on Thanksgiving is an American tradition, and this year’s Turkey Day football betting card doesn’t disappoint. In arguably the biggest game of the holiday weekend, the Green Bay Packers will try to stay undefeated on the road against the Detroit Lions.


Texas Favored in Big 12 Clash

As has been a Thanksgiving Day tradition for each of the last three seasons, the Texas Longhorns and the Texas A&M Aggies will take the field Thursday night, this season at College Station.

The Aggies have held the edge in this in-state rivalry over recent years with a 4-2 SU and 6-0 ATS record in the last six meetings between these two teams.

Ryan Tennehill threw for 280 yards and three touchdowns as Texas A&M earned bowl eligibility with a blowout win over Kansas last week.


Pats vs Chiefs in MNF Betting

The strange trend of the New England Patriots failing to cover NFL point spreads at home in the month of November continued two weeks as they lost to the Giants.

This time, it's the Kansas City Chiefs visiting Foxboro on Monday Night Football with the odds stacked high against KC. And they will look to continue a 2-11 ATS run for the Pats at home in November. [ See dozens of Tom Brady and New England Patriots Monday Night props at bottom of this article ]


Crosby favored to score in return

His coaches and teammates expect some rink rust as former NHL MVP Sidney Crosby returns to action for the first time in almost a year.

But oddsmakers expect him to get right back into the flow and score in his season debut as the Penguins face the Islanders.

Oddsmakers at Bovada made Crosby a -140 favorite to score in tonight’s game, where the Penguins are big moneyline favorites at home. The odds on him recording at least a point are very high, at -325.


Opening Odds: LSU set for Arkansas

With five games featuring two ranked teams in the AP Top 25, and trips to the SEC and Big Ten Championships on the line, there’s no question that Thanksgiving weekend will provide plenty of exciting college football betting opportunities.
