Cowboys Wildcats Betting Preview

Oklahoma State ran up 666 yards of offense in its season opener and dropped 61 points on poor UL Lafayette.

But the visiting Arizona Wildcats, who are 1-0 ATS against the spread, and won easily behind 412 yards and five touchdowns from Nick Foles, also see that the Cowboys gave up 34 points. No surprise that the key Thursday Night match between the No. 9 Cowboys and the Wildcats - a rematch of last year's Alamo Bowl - sees a huge 63.5 over under number.


Phillies, Brewers in MLB odds clash

The top two teams in the National League will begin a baseball betting series on Thursday as the Brewers host the Phillies.

With each team holding down an NL division lead, this week's four-game set in Milwaukee could be a preview of the NLCS. The Brewers won two of three games when these teams met back in April.


Packers vs Saints Prop Lines List

When the Packers and Saints kick off the 2011 season Thursday, the point spread is just one of more than 100 ways you can bet the clash of the two most recent Super Bowl champions.

Sure the side bet is fun (-4.5 for Green Bay) and the total is a must-wager too (47.5). But it's prop odds that make the most noise and offer the most profit potential, especially for fantasy footbal gurus who really know their stuff.

Colts, Patriots opening odds surprises

It’s been nearly 10 years since the Indianapolis Colts were a 9-point underdog in a meaningful game.

It was Nov. 10, 2002 and the visiting Colts were 9.5-point underdogs against the powerful Eagles. It didn’t matter in the end as they rolled 35-13, but Indy backers find themselves in a similar betting predicament in Week 1 of the NFL season.

They were going to be road dogs in Houston anyway, as the number opened at -2 in favour of the Texans. But then Peyton Manning’s injury rehab crawled at a snail’s pace and the betting hit the Houston side at a feverish pace.


MLB Odds: Tigers vs. Indians

The Detroit Tigers will continue their MLB betting series on the road in Cleveland against the rival Indians on Tuesday night.

The Tigers are trying to pull further away from both the Indians and the Chicago White Sox in the race for top spot in the AL Central standings with just one month left in the regular season.
