Buccaneers Failing to Cover at Home

Tampa Bay Quarterback Winston

The New York Giants were on the wrong end of a wild 52-49 shootout with the New Orleans Saints in Week 8, which continued a troubling trend for bettors and fans of the G-Men alike as the NFL season reaches the halfway point. Including Sunday’s loss, New York is now 0-7 SU in its last seven contests in the month of November.

New York’s defense was exploited by Drew Brees in the form of seven passing touchdowns, which shouldn’t surprise anyone considering how the unit has performed this season. The Giants’ defense is ranked last in the NFL, thanks to opposing offenses averaging 428.2 yards per game during that span. 

The Bucs (3-4 SU, 4-3 ATS) have been a much better bet on the road compared to at home. Tampa is 1-2 at Raymond James Stadium, compared to 3-1 ATS away from home.

Bills vs Dolphins Week 9 Odds

Lesean Mccoy Buffalo Bills Running Back

The Miami Dolphins enjoyed back to back solid victories after recently showing former head coach Joe Philbin the door, but came back down to earth in Week 8 thanks to a 36-7 Thursday Night Football clobbering at the hands of the New England Patriots.

Interim bench boss Dan Campbell will be looking for a much better result from his team in Week 9 against another divisional rival, the Buffalo Bills. The Bills, who opened as field goal favorites at most sportsbooks, have been one of the most inconsistent teams in the NFL this season and are on a mini two-game losing streak. The good news for Bills backers is Buffalo has historically been able to bounce back at the betting window, going 11-2 ATS in their last 13 games after suffering consecutive losses.

The perennially dominant New England Patriots appear to be the class of the AFC East once again, but considering the logjam in the standings between the ‘Fins, Bills and Jets, this matchup could be a difference maker at the end of the year in the Wild Card race.

Titans-Saints Week 9 Betting Odds

Drew Brees New Orleans Saints

Just when it looked like the New Orleans Saints weren’t going to be able to contend in 2015, Sean Payton’s club has picked up three consecutive victories ahead of Week 9’s clash against the Tennessee Titans in the Bayou State. The Saints (4-4 SU, 4-3-1 ATS) edged the New York Giants 52-49 in a wild showdown last week thanks to an amazing seven touchdowns from veteran signal caller Drew Brees.

The Titans weren’t expected to contend this season, but the club’s 1-6 record leaves a lot to be desired for its fans. The returns on No. 2 overall pick Marcus Mariota have been great so far, but the Oregon product hasn’t seen the field since Week 6 due to a nagging knee injury. Backup QB Zach Mettenberger hasn’t performed up to snuff in his place, tossing three interceptions starting under center for the Titans. Mettenberger is now 0-8 in his career as an NFL starter.

Tennessee will have a new look on the sidelines for this game after former head coach Ken Whisenhunt was relieved of his duties in the middle of the week. Taking over as interim bench boss will be Mike Mularkey.

To say the Saints have lived and died by their offense would be a massive understatement. New Orleans ranks second in the league in total offense and 30th in defense. It’s a stark contrast to the Titans, who are 31st in offense and fifth in defense.

Monday Night Football: IND vs CAR Odds

Carolina Panthers Cam Newton

Are the Carolina Panthers for real, and have the Indianapolis Colts reached the point of no return? Thanks to a slow start by the Colts and some fantastic play by the Panthers, those are a few of the questions on the minds of many NFL experts right now. Both sides will be seeking to prove their worth when they renew acquaintances in Raleigh for the Week 8 edition of Monday Night Football.

Shark Bites
  • The Panthers are 4-1 SU and ATS in their last five games in November.
  • The Colts are 8-1 SU and 7-2 ATS in their last nine games after losing as favorites.
  • Colts QB Andrew Luck has a 54.6 percent completion rating – the worst number since his rookie year.

When it comes to cashing spread bets, the Panthers and Colts couldn’t be more different. Carolina (6-0-0 SU) is a blistering 5-1 ATS, while Indy (3-4 SU) is just 2-5 ATS at the betting window so far in the 2015 campaign. A porous Colts defense that’s allowed the most total yards in the NFL (408.6 per game) does not match up well against a Panthers offense that’s been dynamite on the ground, averaging 152.40 rushing yards per game.

The Colts will need Andrew Luck to be at his best, but that's easier said than done, especially after reports began to circulate on Sunday that Luck has been playing with fractured ribs.

The Colts are 6-2 ATS in their last eight Monday Night Football road games, while the Panthers have been strong over their past five November games, going 4-1 SU and ATS.

Nover: Patriots Unbeaten Year Ahead?

The 2007 New England Patriots are the only NFL team to go 16-0 during the regular season. This year's Patriots team could be the second.

Several bet shops, including Bovada and South Point in Las Vegas, had put out a two-way prop on New England going unbeaten. Those odds opened 20-1 the Patriots would not and 12-1 they would.

Right now 12-1 seems high.


History of NFL Teams Who Start 6-0 & 7-0

Cam Newton Superman

After seven weeks of NFL action, five teams stand with perfect 6-0 records. The Bengals, Broncos, Packers, Patriots, and Panthers have all reached the six win mark and will be shooting for 7-0 records this weekend.


Ailing Cowboys Play Host to Seahawks

Seattle Seahawks Marshawn Lynch

It’s usually an entertaining battle when the Seattle Seahawks and Dallas Cowboys square off, but Week 8’s contest leaves a lot to be desired for a multitude of reasons. Dallas has been ravaged by injuries, headlined by star quarterback Tony Romo and dynamic wideout Dez Bryant. Matt Cassel was given the reigns of the quarterback position in Week 8 and had a day to forget, throwing three interceptions en route to a 27-20 loss to the New York Giants.

Shark Bites
  • The Seahawks are 2-6 ATS in their last eight games against the Cowboys.
  • The Cowboys are 11-2 SU and 10-3 ATS in their last 13 games after consecutive losses.
  • The home team is 6-1 SU in the last seven games in this matchup.

Seattle’s 3-4 SU record is perhaps even more underwhelming than it looks on paper. Including a 20-3 stomping of the suddenly lowly 49ers, the Seahawks still have some work ahead of them if they want to catch the first place Arizona Cardinals in the NFC West.

The ‘Boys have been atrocious when it comes to covering spreads this season, going 1-5 ATS. Needless to say, Romo and Bryant can’t get back on the field soon enough for Cowboys backers.

SNF – Undefeated GB & DEN Collide

Green Bay Packers Randall Cobb

In what’s arguably the most anticipated contest on the Week 8 NFL slate, the Green Bay Packers’ high-flying offense takes on the Denver Broncos’ rock solid defense in a battle of undefeated teams at Sports Authority Field at Mile High. It’s never easy to stop the 2014 MVP Aaron Rodgers, but the Broncos appear to be up for the test. Denver has been allowing an average of 281.3 total yards per game this season (tops in the NFL) while ranking second in points allowed (17).

Shark Bites
  • The Packers are 6-0 SU and ATS in their last six games after the bye.
  • The Packers are 6-0 SU and 5-1 ATS in their last six games as road favorites in November.
  • Denver’s Emmanuel Sanders and DeMarcus Ware have returned to practice after suffering injuries.

The Packers (5-1 ATS) and Broncos (4-2 ATS) haven’t played each other since October of 2011, meaning Sunday’s matchup will be extra interesting to see how Rodgers, one of the top quarterbacks in the game, fares against Peyton Manning – a quarterback who will go down as one of the greatest ever.

If there’s one aspect that’s going to dictate the outcome of this game, it’s on the ground. Denver has been struggling immensely to get anything going in the running game, ranking 30th in the NFL in rushing yards per game (85). That hasn’t been a problem for Green Bay, as star running back Eddie Lacy and serviceable backup James Starks are averaging 127.3 rushing yards per game – the eighth best mark in the league.

Steelers on Fire ATS Against Bengals

Pittsburgh Steelers Le'Veon Bell

Are the Cincinnati Bengals for real? That’s the question that has been hanging over their heads over the past few years, as the Bengals haven’t been able to parlay solid regular seasons into postseason success. But in light of a blazing 6-0 start to the 2015 campaign, Andy Dalton’s club look like they can go toe-to-toe with anybody and have a matchup with hated rival Pittsburgh on the docket in Week 8.

Shark Bites
  • The Steelers are 8-1 SU and 7-1-1 ATS in their last nine games after a loss.
  • The Bengals are 2-8 SU and ATS in their last 10 games against the Steelers.
  • The Bengals are 8-2 SU in their last 10 games in November.

The Steelers have been forced to play without star QB Ben Roethlisberger but he should be back in the fold for Week 8, according to head coach Mike Tomlin. Tomlin told reporters after Sunday’s 23-13 loss to the Chiefs that “Big Ben” will likely return to action against the Bengals. Roethlisberger was a game-time decision against K.C. which forced third-string QB Landry Jones to make his first career start.

Cincy and Pittsburgh have been continuing to reward their bettors this year. The Bengals are 5-0-1 ATS, while the Steelers are 5-1-1 ATS.

Jets vs Raiders Betting Odds Preview

Oakland Raiders Derek Carr

As the midpoint of the NFL season approaches, certain storylines are starting to take form. The Oakland Raiders are one of them, as this is clearly a different team from the underperforming squads of the last 10 years. Led by standout sophomore QB Derek Carr, the Raiders topped San Diego 37-29 in Week 7 and improved to 3-3 SU, good enough for sole possession of second place in the NFC West.

Shark Bites
  • The home team is 9-2 SU in the last 11 games in this matchup.
  • The Raiders are 1-10 SU and ATS in their last 11 games after winning as an underdog.
  • The Jets are 6-14 SU in their last 20 games on the road.

The Jets, who are set to enter the Black Hole in Week 8, are no slouch either. New York gave New England everything they had last week but came up just short in a 30-23 loss. The Jets have raised some eyebrows this year by ranking second in total defense and eighth in the league in total offense. New York is also performing well at the betting window, going 4-1-1 ATS in their first six games.
