NFL Week 13 Opening Odds

Two key games featuring four of the AFC’s elite teams highlight a full card of NFL betting opportunities with playoff implications on the line in Week 13.

After a snoozer of a game last week in San Francisco vs. Arizona, Monday Night Football quickly redeems itself with this week’s matchup of two of the best teams in the league with the New York Jets visiting the New England Patriots. New England opened as a 3.5-point favorite at Bovada.


College Football Week 14 Lines

It’s conference title game time in college football with league championships and bowl placements on the line.

After an amazing comeback win over Alabama last Friday, No. 2 Auburn will try to stay perfect on the year in the SEC title game against No. 18 South Carolina. The line is shrinking; and Bovada both opened at five points for Auburn but have since changed it to 4.5.

NFL Week 13 Betting Trends

A pair of Week 13 rematches could see revenge exacted if the trends are correct when Oakland visits San Diego and New England hosts the Jets.

Back in Week 5 the Raiders surprised the Chargers in a 35-27 win as a 7-point home underdog. Before that loss San Diego had won 13 straight against Oakland while posting a profitable 10-3 record ATS. [ Key NFL trends on every game, scroll to the bottom of the story ]


Bolts, Leafs on NHL Odds

The favored -115 Maple Leafs' three-game home winning streak will be in jeopardy on Tuesday when they host an underdog Tampa Bay team hungry to snap a two-game slide.

Tampa Bay shut out Toronto 4-0 in their only clash this season, and as -105 underdogs at the Lightning are a good upset bet possibility in this one.

Steven Stamkos is scoreless in two games, but against his hometown Maple Leafs he has tallied 13 points in nine career games – including a pair in the earlier meeting.


Monday Night Football Odds

This week's Monday Night Football matchup leaves a lot to be desired, as the Cardinals try to snap their five-game losing streak when they host the equally underwhelming Niners.

Arizona dropped their fifth in a row last week, getting slammed by Kansas City 31-13 as a 7-point underdog. The Cardinals' offense continued to plod along behind Derek Anderson, who passed for 295 yards with a touchdown.


ACC/Big Ten Challenge Odds

The ACC/Big Ten Challenge will showcase plenty of high-profile schools for NCAA basketball betting fans to enjoy; 11 different teams that qualified for March Madness last year will compete.

The big game to watch on Monday is Virginia vs No. 15 Minnesota at 7:00 p.m. ET. Bovada had Minnesota favored by 15 on the opening line and it has since shifted to 15.5 points. The Golden Gophers have rolled to a 6-0 start and have taken bettors along with them for the ride, going 5-1 against the spread so far.


NFL Week 12 Odds Preview

One team will have their four-game winning streak snapped on Sunday when Green Bay and Atlanta meet in a matchup of division leaders.

Green Bay is also 4-0 ATS during their four-game winning streak after routing Minnesota 31-3 last week as a 3-point favorite. Aaron Rodgers passed for 301 yards with four touchdowns, and his favorite target was Greg Jennings who hauled in seven passes for 152 yards and three scores.


NFL Week 12 Prop Bets

The end of Vince Young's season in Tennessee could mean a nice payday for props bettors when Rusty Smith gets his first career NFL start this weekend.

The props for Smith at Bovada could be harder to figure out than you might think. You've got an inexperienced QB making his first-ever start and second-ever appearance in an NFL game, but he gets to do it against the team with the worst pass defense in the league - the Houston Texans.
