Cincinnati Bengals vs Jacksonville Jaguars Odds


The Bengals don't win on the road and they never seem to beat Jacksonville, yet they open as a small road underdog in Week 5 NFL betting action.

Cincy is 1-7 SU in their past 8 road games, 2-9 SU past 11 against the Jaguars, and just 2-9 ATS in their past 11 games in October. Jacksonville meanwhile has just 23 total points in three straight losses and has seen all four games plunge under the total, which opened at 35.5 and was quickly bet higher.

Kansas City Chiefs vs Indianapolis Colts Odds


One of only two games where both teams are heading to a bye sees the winless Colts desperate for a win before getting their annual break.

The Chiefs meanwhile can rest somewhat easier having broken their victory cherry in Week 4 against the Vikings. Indy meanwhile suffered more injuries and seem headed for the first overall pick in the draft.

Indy is 10-1 SU and 9-2 ATS in their past 11 games with KC but this is not the same Colts team.

Oakland Raiders vs Houston Texans Odds


Oakland visits Houston in Week 5 betting action, knowing they are just 1-5 SU and ATS against the host Texans.

The Raiders come off a home loss against the Patriots and face an improved Texans side that handled the Steelers in Week 4. However, the total may be the safest bet as Houston is 16-3 favoring the OVER in their past 19 October games.

The return of RB Arian Foster makes the Houston offense even more prolific.


Carolina Panthers vs New Orleans Saints in NFL odds tilt

New Orleans Saints vs Carolina Panthers Odds


It's hard to picture a battle between Drew Brees and Cam Newton could end up crashing under a total, but if history repeats itself, this is a guaranteed under play as the Saints visit Carolina.

The past eight meetings here have all played UNDER the number, which opened at 53. The under is 11-2 in the past 13 meetings overall and the Saints have struggled against the Panthers at just 2-7 ATS in their past 9.

Newton looks for another huge day, but he is an underdog at home against New Orleans.


Colts Double Digit Dogs on MNF Odds

The pain continues in Indianapolis where the 0-3 Colts hit the road to face a medicore Tampa Bay team and still manage to open as double-digit underdogs in the Week 4 Monday Nighter.

Indy is 3-0 ATS in three games against the Buccaneers since 1997 and they try find some momentum with Peyton Manning likely shelved for the season. The OVER is 10-2 in their past 12 road games. For what it's worth, the Bucs have lost 5 straight October home games ATS.


Ravens Jets Sunday Night Preview

Baltimore and New York each has designs on an AFC playoff spot, but history tells us the Ravens will win this game as they are 6-1 SU in seven meetings against the Jets since 1997.

The Ravens are 13-1 SU in their past 14 home games, but the total may be the trend most attractive to Week 4 NFL bettors. In their past 13 road games, the Jets have played OVER the total 12 times for a 12-1 clip.

The total is 40 and only one of those 7 meetings saw more than 37 points scored, indicating a possible low-scoring match.


NFL Week 4 Betting Trends

In Week 3, the two most dominant trends blew up in the face of bettors.

Buffalo snapped an 0-15 run by defeating the Patriots and the Lions won in Minnesota for just the second times in 17 trips there. Week 4 NFL trends are not nearly as one-sided, but perhaps they can be more profitable.  

San Francisco faces an ugly trend in its game at Philadelphia, but it’s more to do with the division itself than with the Eagles. The 49ers have lost 13 of 14 games to NFC East teams dating back several years and they have bled money on the point spread too, going 1-11-2 ATS.


Patriots visit Raiders in Week 4 battle

New England hits the road for Oakland a week after their epic collapse at Buffalo where the Bills rallied from 21-0 down.

The Patriots came to town three years ago and walloped the Raiders 49-26, but these Raiders are 3-0 ATS on the year.

Again, the total may be the pick with the most supporting trends as the Pats are 6-1 ATS in their past 7 road games and the Raiders have played OVER in 5 straight at home.

Sunday Setup: NFL Betting Preview

After an exciting week where just about every game went down to the wire, NFL bettors are honing in as Sunday gets closer, looking for any tidbits that can give them a late edge over bookmakers.

Here is a recap of some late news and interesting trends this week to get you up to date heading into the weekend.

Betting line favors Saints over Jags

New Orleans has scored 104 points in three games this season, while the Jacksonville Jaguars have scored a grand total of 29 for the year.

Small wonder the Saints come in as heavy road chalk (-7) as they visit the Jags in Week 4 NFL betting action.

This situation hasn't been kind to either team as New Orleans is 1-5 ATS in its last 6 games on the road and the Jags are 1-5 ATS in their past 6 overall.

The road team has never won in four lifetime meetings.
