Washington vs Stanford Week 8 Odds

Christian McCaffrey Stanford

After a tough opening week loss to Northwestern, Stanford has been on-fire going 5-0 SU and ATS. The Cardinals have had an average scoring margin of +22.2 through those five games, which has seen them easily cover the spread. Stanford will look to ascend higher in the college rankings when they host the Washington Huskies Saturday. 

Washington was close to pulling off their second consecutive upset when they faced Oregon last week, but instead they got the loss and saw their starting quarterback get injured. Freshman Jake Browning left the game in the final seconds after sustaining a shoulder injury and his status for the game against Stanford is questionable.

Stanford continues to become the Christian McCaffrey show after the running back rushed for 243 yards and four touchdowns in less than three quarters of work last week. The Heisman dark horse has rushed for a combined 720 yards and five touchdowns over the past four weeks.

LSU vs Western Kentucky Week 8 Odds

LSU running back Leonard Fournette

LSU continues to be a sizzling hot OVER play with the team topping the closing total in each of their past five games. In the Tigers’ past five games they have averaged 40.6 points per game behind running back Leonard Fournette’s 11 rushing touchdowns. LSU will play host to the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers Saturday. 

Western Kentucky has gotten to a 6-1 SU record thanks in large part to the play of quarterback Brandon Doughty. The senior Hilltopper is second in the nation in passing yards and third in touchdown passes. Six different Western Kentucky players have receiving touchdowns this season, with Taywan Taylor leading the lot with ten trips to the endzone.  

If we know one thing, it is that Les Miles has no problem gambling. LSU and Florida were tied 28-28 in the fourth quarter when the head coach called a fake field goal, which kicker Trent Domingue ran in for the winning score. Heisman favorite Fournette rushed for another 180 yards and two touchdowns in the victory.

Tennessee Just Can Not Beat Alabama

Tennessee QB Joshua Dobbs

Tennessee has been relegated to the spoiler position over the past few seasons, but the Vols have had no such luck when they square off against Alabama. The Volunteers have lost the past eight meetings against the Tide with Tennessee being outscored 283-95.

Tennessee is 3-3 SU so far this season, but could very well be undefeated had they gotten a few more breaks. The Volunteers’ three losses this season, which includes a double overtime game with Oklahoma, have come by a combined 13 points.

Alabama running back Derrick Henry was expected to be a huge player for the Tide this season, but has proven to be inconsistent. However, the junior back ran for a career-high 236 yards in Alabama’s 41-23 win over Texas A&M last week.

Offense Aplenty When OU and TT Meet

Baker Mayfeild Oklahoma

The Oklahoma Sooners and Texas Tech Red Raiders are not going to trick anyone with their gameplan, which is more often than not simply outscoring the other team, which has lead to the OVER cashing in four of their past five meetings. Oklahoma and Texas Tech have combined for more than 80 points per game and 750 passing yards this season.

If there was any doubt about the Sooners after their loss to Texas two weeks ago, it was dispelled after a 55-0 destruction of Kansas State in their last game. Heisman dark horse quarterback Baker Mayfield threw five touchdowns in the first half before seeing little action in the second. 

The vaunted Texas Tech offense struggled last week and scored a season-low 30 points. The Red Raiders defense was able to take advantage of a young and overwhelmed Jayhawks offense, but there’s no denying that the key to Texas Tech’s success is their offense.

CFL Week 18 Trends and Betting Preview

With just three weeks left in the CFL season playoff positioning will be on the line this week as the league offers up four matchups on its betting slate. Week 18 gets underway on Friday night with the displaced Toronto Argonauts hosting the Montreal Alouettes at Tim Hortons Field in Hamilton.

Montreal at Toronto - Friday, October 23

Last 10 Meetings: Toronto 5-5 SU, 5-5 ATS | OU 1-9


Blue Jays Have Been Great At Home

The Toronto Blue Jays have a lot of history to buck if they want to come back and win the American League Championship Series against the Kansas City Royals, but luckily for the Jays they were stellar at home this season. Toronto's 53-28 home record was tied for the best in the American League during the regular season.

Of the past 25 teams to go down 2-0 in the Championship Series, only three have come back to make it to the World Series (‘04 Red Sox, ‘85 Cardinals, ‘85 Royals). When you look at best-of-seven series all-time, the teams that have won the first two games have a 62-13 series record.

The Blue Jays, whose offense carried them through the year, has only scored three runs in the series so far. Only once in the second half of the season did the Jays score three runs or less over a two games span. Marcus Stroman, who has only allowed 10 earned runs in his six starts this year, will get the start for the Jays in Game 3.

The Royals are starting to turn it on after a shaky start in the ALDS round, winning their past four games by a combined score of 27-11. The Royals will send Johnny Cueto to the bump, with the one-time all-star finding his form again in his last outing. In his two starts this postseason, Cueto has posted a 3.86 ERA but has allowed two home runs, which could cause problems in the hitter friendly park that is Rogers Centre.

Monday Night Football - PHI vs NYG Odds

Eli Manning New York Giants

The Philadelphia Eagles have been hard to watch at times this season, but a meeting against the New York Giants could cure that if history is any indication. The Eagles are 11-3 SU and ATS in their past 14 games against the Giants.

<h5>Shark Bites</h5>

<ul class="content-list">
    <li>The Giants have lost their past three MNF games.</li>
    <li>The OVER is 8-2 in the Eagles past 10 MNF games.</li>
    <li>The Giants averaged just 3.3 yards per carry against the Eagles last season.</li>

Quarterback Sam Bradford struggled mightily to start the Eagles win against the Saints in Week 5 with two red zone interceptions within the first 20 minutes.  The often-injured signal caller settled down and ended the game with 333 passing yards and two touchdowns to add to those picks.

The Giants have strung together three consecutive wins to take the lead in the NFC East. Quarterback Eli Manning is having one of the best seasons of his career. After being plagued by interceptions last season the Ole Miss-alum has only thrown two through his first five games this season.

Jones Has Been Phenomenal For Sharks

San Jose Sharks goalie Martin Jones

The San Jose Sharks put a lot of trust into relatively untested goalie Martin Jones this offseason by giving up a first-round pick for the netminder and how that gamble has paid off early. Jones is expected to start Monday when the Sharks visit the New York Rangers in the lone NHL game on the slate.

Jones is only four games into his Sharks career, but has already set the franchise record for longest shutout streak with the netminder not allowing a goal in 234:33. The Vancouver-native is also leading the NHL in GAA and save percentage.

The Rangers took both games against the Sharks last season with Rick Nash taking center stage scoring two goals in those contests. After opening the season 3-0-0, the Rangers have gone 0-2-1 in their past three while scoring just two goals.

Canadian Prime Minister Election Odds

With less than a week to go until the Canadian federal election it's Liberal leader Justin Trudeau who has surged to the top of the odds to be the next Prime Minister of Canada at the sportsbooks.

At Bovada Trudeau is now the -175 favorite on the odds to be the next Prime Minister of Canada, with current PM and Conservative leader Stephen Harper second at +125, and NDP leader Thomas Mulcair a distant third at +1500.


Nover: Manning Leads Giants vs Eagles

Eli Manning has helped win two Super Bowls for the New York Giants. But no one would put the 34-year-old in the elite class of quarterback.

Maybe they should.

Quietly Manning had an outstanding statistical season last year after a slow start and he's been even better this year.

At first Manning seemed to be a bad fit when the Giants hired former Green Bay Packers quarterback coach Ben McAdoo to be their offensive coordinator last year. McAdoo's system is all about precision, timing passes and shorter routes.
