Vick, Romo status affect NFL spreads

Philadelphia’s Michael Vick is among the biggest names on the injury watch list this week as football bettors try to assess his and other key players’ statuses for this weekend's action.


Stats for 2-0 Teams and 0-2 Teams

If your team is 2-0, you safely include them among teams who will play for Super Bowl XLVI in February.

And those seven 0-2 teams, odds are against them even making the playoffs.

In the past five seasons, four of the five Super Bowl started 2-0. And all five runner-ups were 2-0 as well.

It's only two games, but they are very important two games.

See the past three years data of 2-0 teams and 0-2 teams.


Colts picked as biggest losers

From preseason Super Bowl co-favorites in 2010 to odds-on favorite to have the longest losing streak of any NFL team in 2011.

What a difference a Manning (or the lack of one) can make on your team’s fortunes.

Bovada has posted a ton of fun Week 3 betting specials and the biggest loser is topped by the Colts at 5/2. Kansas City and Miami are next at 9/2 followed by NFC West 0-for-2 starters St. Louis and Seattle.


Ravens favored at Rams in Week 3

If birds were able to lick their wounds, the Baltimore Ravens would be doing so after a shocking upset at Tennessee in Week 2.

Tennessee handled them, a week after Baltimore clobbered the Steelers to open the season. They visit St. Louis, who will play on a short week after its Monday Nighter against the New York Giants.


Betting line favors Titans over Broncos

Tennessee opened as 4.5-point favorites but were quickly bet up to -7.5 early this week as the Titans vs Broncos line went up.

The Titans were upset winners over the Baltimore Ravens, shocking many in the football betting world. Denver beat Cincinnati but failed to cover a small home spread.

The teams have met three times since 2003 with the Broncos winning and covering all three. All three have gone OVER the total.

Saints vs Texans Odds Preview

Oddsmakers finally seem to believe the Houston Texans are for real, after several years of teasing.

The Texans are just 4-point underdogs as they visit the New Orleans Saints in Week 3. Houston is 2-0 but the Saints were dominant in thrashing the Bears. The home team won both prior meetings in 2004 and 2007.

But what about the Texans and the fact they have lost 6 in a row as an underdog? They are 1-5 ATS in those games. Should more action be heading to the Saints late this week?


Vikings vs Lions Betting Report

Detroit has lost 16 of the last 17 games in Minnesota, but the 2011 edition of the Lions is a much different one than many of those earlier ones.

So, it seems, are the Vikings, although not in a good way. A week after being the biggest favorite in 11 years, the 2-0 Lions opened as 4-point favorites against 0-2 Minnesota.

Detroit has been a road favorite just three other times since 2005 (and lost all three) but the betting public is sticking with them here in a place they never win.

Of note, the past 6 meetings between these teams all played UNDER the total.


Browns Perfect ATS in Career vs Miami

Miami has never covered the spread in four career games against the Cleveland Browns and they are underdogs on the road in Week 3.

The 0-2 Dolphins played much better in Week 2, while the Browns were a rare road favorite and covered in Indy.

The opening line has jumped around quickly at sportsbooks tracked by Odds Shark, indicating some early betting volatility.

The Browns have sucked at home for bettors recently, going 0-5 ATS past 5 home games. Meanwhile the Dolphins have been excellent in this situation going 11-3 ATS in their past 14 road games.


Bengals Horrible As Home Favorites

This is a spot where the Cincinnati Bengals almost never cover the spread - at home as a favorite.
The past 14 games when they were favored at home, they covered the spread just twice (2-14 ATS). The home team has won all four meetings between these teams dating from 1996 and the host Bengals opened as favorites here in Week 3 against the San Francisco 49ers.
Historically, the Bengals always lose to the 49ers going 2-9 SU in 11 meetings since 1980. But in the past 7 contests, the Bengals are 5-1-1 ATS. Both teams are 1-1 and both teams have played 2 OVERs so far.


Jaguars face Panthers in Week 3 odds

Expansion cousins in 1995, the cat fight between the Jaguars and Panthers has only happpened four times with Jacksonville leading 3-1 ATS.

This time, the struggling Jaguars face the exciting Panthers, led by rookie QB Cam Newton who has thrown for over 400 yards in his first two starts. Unfortunately, both have been losses.

Carolina has lost 11 of 12 SU, while 7 of the past 10 Jaguars road games have gone OVER the total.
