Bengals Colts Betting Preview for Week 6

Indianapolis has won seven straight against the Bengals but trends like those get taken with a huge grain of salt with the Peyton Manning-less Colts.

Indy is 0-5, and despite winning 7 of 8 trips to Cincinnati they opened as 8-point road underdogs against their AFC foes. The Bengals have won two straight and look for three hitting their bye week in Week 7.

The Bengals are just 2-12 ATS in their past 14 games as a favorite.

Falcons battle Panthers in Week 6 odds

Atlanta's second-half implosion against the Packers didn't amuse oddsmakers, who left them as small 4-point home chalk against the visiting Panthers on the Week 6 NFL odds menu.

But despite Carolina's improvements, they are a pathetic 3-10-2 ATS in 15 recent trips to Atlanta, meaning they have covered the spread there 3 times in 15 seasons.


MLB Betting Lines: Brewers vs. Cards

The Brewers and the Cardinals will meet in the fourth game of the National League Championship Series in St. Louis on Thursday night.

Randy Wolf is the scheduled starter for Milwaukee in Thursday's Game 4, while Kyle Lohse will counter with a mound outing for St. Louis. The Cards lead the best-of-seven series 2-1.


NFL Injuries: Giants vs. Bills Lines

After an embarrassing loss at home to the Seattle Seahawks as a 9.5-point favorite last Sunday the New York Giants hope their injury misfortunes will take a turn for the better before this weekend’s game against Buffalo.


Caps, Pens on NHL betting lines

Washington has potted 10 goals in its first two wins to open the season. The Capitals will look to keep that rolling when they meet the high octane offense of the Pittsburgh Penguins in NHL betting action on Thursday night.

Pittsburgh will be the favorite among oddsmakers at 5Dimes, but it’s Washington who has prevailed in the regular season head-to-head. The Capitals have shut out the Penguins in two straight and are 7-1 in the past eight meetings.


USC Favored at Cal Thursday

The USC Trojans will look to continue their recent dominance over the California Golden Bears this Thursday night.

USC has won seven straight games against Cal, and is 5-2 ATS over that span.

Wide receiver Robert Woods continued his assault on the USC record books in the Trojans' last game against Arizona, catching 14 passes for 255 yards and two touchdowns.

Never applies to Week 6 Trends

They say you should never say never but Week 6 NFL betting trends have a few cases where 'never' can be said safely.

As in, the Raiders have never covered a spread against the Cleveland Browns (they are 0-5 ATS).

As in the Houston Texans have never beaten the Baltimore Ravens (in four career tries).

As in, the home team has never won the past four times the Bills and Giants have clashed.


MLB Odds: Brewers vs. Cardinals

The National League Championship Series heads to St. Louis for Wednesday night's Game 3 between the Cardinals and the Brewers.

Chris Carpenter will head to the hill for the Cardinals on Wednesday night, while the Brewers turn to Yovani Gallardo. On Monday night the Cardinals tied up the series at 1-1 with a 12-3 victory in Game 2.


CFL Betting Odds: Week 16

Calgary is in a three-way tie for first in the West and needs to come out a winner when they play league-worst Toronto in their CFL betting matchup for Week 16 on Friday night.

The Stampeders (8-6) lost to the Lions for the second time this season last week 33-31 while managing to cover the 3-point spread. Calgary has lost three of the last four, but a date with Toronto (3-11) should be just the remedy for their woes. Toronto won the only meeting between these teams this season as a 7.5-point underdog.


Opening Lines: Packers huge chalk

There are plenty of surprises around the NFL heading into Week 6, including the fact that the Detroit Lions, San Francisco 49ers, and Buffalo Bills have combined for only two losses this season. But one team’s success hasn’t come as a surprise, and that’s the defending champion Green Bay Packers.

This week, the 5-0 SU Packers host the 0-4 SU St. Louis Rams in one of the biggest mismatches on paper of the early season. TopBet currently lists Green Bay as a 15-point favorite at home.
