Titans vs. Rams NFL Preseason Odds

The Tennessee Titans will be underdogs on the NFL betting lines on Saturday as they continue their preseason schedule on the road against the St. Louis Rams.

And Tennessee still isn't expected to have Chris Johnson on the field this weekend, as the star running back continues to angle for a new lucrative contract.


Bellator 48 Sandro vs Curran Odds

Marlon Sandro looks to claim Bellator’s featherweight title against fast-rising Pat Curran Saturday in Bellator 48.
Curran meanwhile looks to become the first Bellator fighter to hold titles in two weight classes.

A star in Japan recently in the Sengoku Raiden Championships and in the Shooto Brazil series before that, Sandro is making waves in the USA with Bellator. He is 19-2 with his only coming against heralded stars Michihiro Omigawa and Hatsu Hioki.


Miami Hurricanes Booster Scandal Odds

It hasn’t been invoked since 1987 but NCAA officials have not ruled out using the ‘death penalty’ in disciplining the Miami Hurricanes football program.

In the wake of the booster scandal which continues to erupt this NFL preseason, Miami officials are sweating out the start of an investigation that is certain to yield suspensions and penalties.


Indians vs. Tigers on MLB odds

The Detroit Tigers will be looking to increase their lead in the AL Central standings on the Cleveland Indians when those teams begin an MLB betting series on Friday night.

Max Scherzer (12-7, 4.37 ERA) will head to the hill for the Tigers on Friday night. Righthander Scherzer faced the Indians back on June 16, allowing two runs in 5 2-3 innings in a victory.


Green Bay vs. Arizona Preseason NFL Odds

When Green Bay played OVER in Week 1 of the NFL preseason, it continued a trend that has seen totals bettors turn a healthy profit over the past few years.

The Packers lost 27-17, but OVER bettors (35) were rewarded again, making it 12 wins in the past 14 Green Bay games in the exhibition schedule.

At home this week against Arizona (where they are favoured by 5.5 points at online shops such as Bovada), expect the OVER bettors to line up again. The OVER is 8-2 in the Pack’s past 10 at home during the preseason.


Eagles vs. Steelers Preseason Preview

The Eagles have all the hype, the Steelers own all the Super Bowl rings.

That’s one reason why oddsmakers at Bovada and other top online sportsbooks have Pittsburgh settled in as 2.5-point home favorites for Thursday’s game.

But 84% of the betting public are on the Eagles, according to the betting consensus here at


Baseball Betting: Dodgers vs. Brewers

Supporters of the Los Angeles Dodgers will look to Clayton Kershaw on Thursday as their team takes on the Brewers in Milwaukee.

Lefthander Kershaw (14-5, 2.72 ERA) has managed to pick up the win in eight of his past 10 trips to the mound, allowing two or fewer earned runs in each of those eight victories.


NASCAR Odds: Pure Michigan 400

Jimmie Johnson and Carl Edwards are the co-favorites on the NASCAR betting lines to take the checkered flag in the Pure Michigan 400 at Michigan International Speedway this weekend.

At Bovada it's Johnson and Edwards at the top of the Sprint Cup betting board to win Sunday afternoon's Michigan event at 7/1 odds, with Denny Hamlin and Kyle Busch both sitting at 8/1 odds to visit Victory Lane at the race this weekend.


MLB Odds: Rays vs. Red Sox

The Boston Red Sox will play host to the Tampa Bay Rays on Wednesday afternoon as the clubs finish their MLB betting series.

John Lackey (11-8, 6.13 ERA) is scheduled to get the ball for Boston on Wednesday, while the Rays counter with David Price (10-10, 3.76 ERA). The Rays are 2-6 in Price's last eight outings.


Super Bowl Favorites Seldom Win

In each of the past five NFL preseasons, either the Indianapolis Colts or the New England Patriots (and in 2009 it was both) have been the Super Bowl favorite.

History tells us that only once in those five seasons did the preseason favorite actually win (Super Bowl XLII, Colts over Bears). That means history tells us there should be value to be had betting Super Bowl futures.

Last year, the Packers entered the season at 10/1 odds, slightly behind the Colts at 8/1. So a $100 wager on the Packers last September would have paid $1,000 in February.
