Giants Lay 11 Points vs Miami

The New York Giants come out of a bye week in good shape, facing one three winless teams in the NFL, the Miami Dolphins.

The Fins led late but were bitten in the ass by former Gator Tim Tebow, who rallied his Broncos past Miami. The Dolphins are now 0-6 SU and ATS on the year.

These teams have only played five times since 1980 and each game went UNDER the total. It could happen again as the Dolphins have played 5 straight UNDERs and 9 of 11 road games.

Two teams heading for their bye week clash in Carolina where the Vikings visit the Panthers Sunday in Week 8 NFL odds action.

Pats in Pittsburgh to highlight NFL odds

Another exciting NFL betting card this week is highlighted by a matchup between the AFC’s two five-win teams, the New England Patriots and the Pittsburgh Steelers at Heinz Field. The winner will have the best record in the AFC and an inside track to the conference’s top seed.

New England is a 2.5-point road favorite at 5Dimes as they have looked like the sharper team to this point. The Patriots have dominated this series in recent years, going 7-3 SU and 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games against the Steelers.


Monday Night Football Prop Odds

The game looks one-sided making the list of Monday Night Football prop odds especially interesting as the Ravens and Jaguars clash tonight.

Baltimore opened as 8.5-point favorites and bettors pushed the point spread up past -10.5 at one online sportsbook (TopBet), which is rare for a road team on national TV. And the total has hovered around 38.5.


Ravens vs Jaguars MNF Odds

Jacksonville gets a rare Monday Nighter and it's not a spot where they have excelled over the years, going just 2-7 ATS since 1999.

And they face a tough Baltimore team that manhandled the Jets and Texans the past two weeks. The Ravens also boast a 7-1 SU run against the Jaguars.


Chargers open as chalk at Jets

When the Jets host the Chargers on Sunday, the Week 7 NFL odds are a contrast in one team coming off a bye facing a team heading into its bye.

It always adds some impetus and handicapping challenges to figure motivation, coaching skills, and other factors. Of note, the OVER is 8-1 in the past nine seasons in pre-bye week games for the Jets, who also happen to be 5-1 ATS in the past 6 seasons in games before a bye.


Packers vs Vikings Line Preview

If the Packers are going to lose in 2011, this is probably not the spot it will happen.

They lead the league in scoring, are 6-2 ATS in the past eight trips to Minnesota, and seem unbeatable. Hence the fat 9.5-point opening point spread, a huge number on the road against a divisional rival.

Green Bay wants to hit the bye week at 7-0 and the OVER has been a consistent bet on them in this situation (6-2 in the past eight seasons before a bye week). Minnesota meanwhile is just 1-12 SU in its past 13 games as an underdog.


Bradford out for Rams vs Dallas

The Rams haven't won and they haven't covered a spread in 2011, mimicking the ineptitude of Miami so far this season.

Now they head for Dallas in a game that could end up with the biggest point spread of the week. And without QB Sam Bradford, who was declared out Friday for the Rams.

After opening at -10 for Dallas, bettors quickly pounced and drove the number all the way to -14.5 at some online sportsbooks tracked by


Saints huge chalk vs Colts

In the second Super Bowl rematch, the Saints host the Colts in a matchup of Super Bowl XLIV teams, but clearly this is not a championship-calibre team in Indy in 2011.

New Orleans opened as 14-point chalk against the winless Colts and this number could climb much higher during the week. Of note, the past four meetings have been high-scoring affairs (at least 48 PPG in each).
