NFL Betting Trends: Week 6

Seattle's coming off its bye week and heads to Chicago as an underdog in Week 6 of the NFL season. With the way underdogs are biting, do they deserve your money this week? The trends say no.

The Seahawks must hate being away from home because they've been a total disaster on the road for quite awhile. Seattle is currently riding a four-game road losing streak during which they're also 0-4 ATS. Look back a little further and you'll find they're 1-10 SU and ATS in their last 11 road games.


Texas vs Tampa Game 5 Odds Preview

The AL East champion Tampa Bay Rays have all the momentum after coming back from an 0-2 deficit to force a deciding game in their best-of-five ALDS against the Texas Rangers.

The home crowd at Tropicana Field on Tuesday should give Tampa Bay the boost it needs. Still, most books only give them a slight advantage as -115 favorites.

Tampa Bay’s bats came alive in Game 4 of the ALDS, sending Texas starter Tommy Hunter to the showers after just four innings. Texas will travel to the sunshine state for Game 5; set to get underway at 8:07 p.m. ET.


Big Ben Odds in NFL Week 6

The NFL has been an underdog league over the last three weeks as underdogs have covered the spread over 65% of the time and won outright over 50% of the time over that span.

College Football Betting Recap

Week 6 in NCAA football betting was an exciting one, with several undefeated teams going head to head and splitting people’s opinions at sportsbooks in the process.

The battle of Michigan, pitting Michigan State against Michigan, probably had the most betting buzz over the weekend.

But those who felt the visiting Spartans were the more legit team got rewarded.
