College Football Week 13 Betting Trends

The Iowa Hawkeyes are 1-5 straight up and 3-3 against the spread in their last six games against the Nebraska Cornhuskers. The Hawkeyes will attempt to wrap up an undefeated regular season this Friday on the road against Nebraska.

Iowa is a 1.5-point road favorite in Lincoln according to online sportsbook Bovada. Through 11 games this season, the Hawkeyes are 11-0 SU and 6-5 ATS, and they could be two wins away from a spot in the College Football Playoff.


NFL Week 12 Opening Odds Analysis

The pubic has long held a fascination with the Dallas Cowboys. No matter how many mediocre seasons - like only five playoff seasons during the last 14 years - and noxious players such as Greg Hardy, Dez Bryant and Joseph Randle, the Cowboys draw major attention.
Apparently this awe extends to oddsmakers and bookmakers since they opened 3-7 Dallas as a pick'em at home versus unbeaten Carolina for Thursday's Thanksgiving Day matchup.


NFL Odds: Perfect Panthers vs Cowboys

Cam Newton Panthers

The special Week 12 edition of NFL Thanksgiving Day football just got a whole lot more interesting thanks to the return of Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo last week. 

Along with the Lions, the Cowboys are the only other team in the league that hosts a Thanksgiving game each season and this year’s clash with the undefeated Carolina Panthers is shaping up to be a good one. Sportsbooks are expecting this to be a close game, as most shops opened the line at a pick ‘em.

<h5>Shark Bites</h5>

<ul class="content-list">
<li>The Cowboys are 8-3 SU in their last 11 TNF games.</li>
<li>The Panthers are 6-2 SU in their last 8 games on the road in November.</li>
<li>The total has gone UNDER in 4 of the Cowboys' last 5 games in November.</li>

Carolina has been one of the most impressive teams in the NFL this season and doesn’t appear to be slowing down any time soon. Thanks to a 44-16 blowout of the Washington Redskins, the Panthers improved to 10-0 SU and 8-2 ATS on the year.

NHL Betting Lines: Conference Futures

There is a logjam behind the Stars in the West with the Chicago Blackhawks, Los Angeles Kings, St. Louis Blues, Anaheim Ducks and San Jose Sharks all listed between +600 and +750 to win the Western Conference.


SuperContest Team OS Wk 11 Review

For the second time in six home games this season the unbeaten New England Patriots (10-0) saw the final score land right on the number posted on the SuperContest Card, awarding a half-point to all of those who selected them and the Buffalo Bills (5-5) after their 20-13 victory in the Monday Night Football game.


UFC: Jones vs Cormier Rematch Odds

Jon Jones Daniel Cormier

It seems that Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier are on a collision course once again. With Jones never officially losing his UFC Light Heavyweight Title and many not seeing Cormier as the true champion because of that, it looks like these two will meet sooner rather than later.


Packers-Bears Thanksgiving Preview

Lacy Green Bay Packers NFL

The Green Bay Packers halted a three-game slide and righted the ship in Week 11, topping division rival Minnesota 30-13 in impressive fashion. Next up on the docket for the Pack is a home date with another NFC North foe in the Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving Day.

<h5>Shark Bites</h5>

<ul class="content-list">
<li>The Bears are 0-6 SU in their last 6 games against NFC North opponents.</li>
<li>The Packers are 5-2 SU and ATS in their last 7 TNF games.</li>
<li>The total has gone UNDER in 6 of the Bears' last 8 games.</li>

Green Bay backers have loved seeing the Bears on the schedule, and for good reason. The Pack are 9-1 ATS in their last 10 against the Bears, largely due to Bears quarterback Jay Cutler’s struggles versus the green and gold. Cutler owns a 1-12 lifetime record versus the Packers while tossing 13 interceptions during that span.

Thanksgiving Special: Eagles at Lions

Ebron Lions NFL

The Detroit Lions are set to partake in their yearly Thanksgiving Day game in Week 12, but it will be far from a festive mood in Motown for the matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles. Despite claiming back-to-back wins over the Packers and Raiders, the Lions’ early season struggles have put them well back in the NFC playoff picture and they’ll need a miracle to make the playoffs at 3-7 SU. 

Lions backers have gotten some relief in the last few weeks, however, as the club has covered the spread on both occasions after going 1-7 ATS to start the season.

Historically speaking, the Eagles have enjoyed facing Detroit. Philly is 7-1 SU and 6-2 ATS in its last eight games versus the Lions. The Eagles enter the contest as losers of three out of their last four and have been largely underwhelming this season at 4-6 SU and ATS, leaving many to speculate that the seat under head coach Chip Kelly could be warming up.
