Broncos are a Great Bet to Bounce Back

Peyton Manning Denver Broncos

The Denver Broncos were flying high prior to Week 9’s contest against the Indianapolis Colts but were brought back down to life at the hands of Andrew Luck and company, suffering their first loss of the season in the process. The Broncos, who play host to Kansas City in Week 10, have historically been great at preventing back to back losses as favorites. Denver is 12-0 SU and 10-2 ATS in their last 12 games after losing as favorites. 

The Chiefs have gotten back on their feet as of late in the wake of an underwhelming start to the season. K.C. has topped Pittsburgh and Detroit while covering the spread in both contests to improve to 3-5 SU in the 2015 campaign. The Chiefs had previously dropped five games in a row ATS before stringing together the aforementioned wins.

Patriots Will Try to Stay Perfect vs Giants

New England Patriots Football

Can anyone stop the New England Patriots this season? Tom Brady and company are one of the three undefeated teams in the NFL at 8-0 and don’t appear to be slowing down anytime soon. The New York Giants will attempt to give the Pats their first loss of the season on Sunday. 

The Giants opened as 7.5-point home underdogs for the tilt which is extremely rare. The G-men have only been bigger home underdogs three times since 1998 that saw them go 0-3 SU and 2-1 ATS during those games.

OVER backers have been laughing all the way to the bank when the Giants have been tabbed as home dogs lately. The OVER has gone 8-2 in New York’s previous 10 games as home pups.

Vikings a Great ATS, UNDER Bet

Vikings Peterson

The Minnesota Vikings and Oakland Raiders have endured their fair share of low points over the course of the last decade, but they’re both trending in the right direction in 2015. Both squads boast a core of talented, young offenses led by a pair of talented quarterbacks in Derrick Carr and Teddy Bridgewater who both look like the real deal. 

The Vikes (6-2 SU) are red-hot for their bettors. Minny is 7-1 ATS on the season and have covered in seven straight games after Week 1. Oakland has also been profitable, going 4-4 SU and 5-3 ATS so far this year. 

The UNDER has also been a sizzling play during Vikings contests. Seven out of Minnesota’s eight games have gone below the closing total.

SNF Betting: Cardinals at Seahawks

Arizona Cardinals NFL Betting

When the Seattle Seahawks won the Super Bowl in 2013, many experts around the NFL figured they would sit atop of the NFC West standings for the foreseeable future. The Arizona Cardinals have had something to say about that, however, and are the other birds perched above the division at 6-2 with nine weeks elapsed in the NFL season. The Cards and Seahawks square off once again Sunday in Seattle, in what’s looking like one of the better games on the Week 10 NFL slate.

Sportsbooks opened Seattle as 3-point favorites for the clash, which shouldn’t inspire much confidence in Seahawks bettors. Pete Carrol’s club is just 2-6 ATS in its last eight games as chalk.

Arizona is coming off its bye week and has historically been dealing with a bit of rust when in that position. The Cards are 1-4 SU and ATS in their last five games after a bye.

UNDER Sizzling in Eagles Contests

Eagles receiver Matthews

When the Miami Dolphins and Philadelphia Eagles get together, covers have been hard to come by for the Phins. Miami has gone 0-6 ATS in their last six meetings against Philly but will try and reverse that trend Sunday when the two clubs renew acquaintances in Pennsylvania.

Philadelphia has rebounded from a very ugly start to the season and appears to be hitting its stride under head coach Chip Kelly. The Eagles emerged triumphant over hated division rival Dallas in the form of a 33-27 overtime victory during Sunday night Football in Week 9.

The UNDER has been a solid bet during Eagles games, paying out in six out of the team’s opening eight contests.

Heinz Field is a Nightmare for the Browns

Cleveland Browns Football

AFC North clashes are always tightly contested grudge matches and the Week 10 matchup between the Cleveland Browns and Pittsburgh Steelers figures to be no different. Heinz Field has not been friendly territory for the Browns in recent seasons. Cleveland is an atrocious 0-11 SU in their last 11 games against the Steelers in Pennsylvania.

Browns bettors may find some solace in this stat, however: the Steelers haven’t been coming through against the spread in November, going 0-6 ATS in their last six games in the month.

The OVER has been a hot bet during Browns games this year. Cleveland is the best OVER team in the NFL with an O/U record of 7-2.

Road Team is Hot in Saints-Skins Games

New Orleans Saints Cooks

The New Orleans Saints were winners of three straight heading into last week’s tilt with the Tennessee Titans but couldn’t make it four in a row, falling to the lowly Titans 34-28 in front of their home crowd. Next up on the docket is another matchup with one of the NFL’s lower-tier clubs, as the Washington Redskins welcome Drew Brees and company to D.C. in NFL Week 10 action.

For some reason, home field advantage hasn’t been much of an advantage at all in this matchup. The road team is 7-1 SU and 6-2 ATS in the last eight meetings between the clubs.

New Orleans, who has a bye in Week 11, has historically performed well before taking the week off. The Saints are 6-1 SU and 5-2 ATS in their last seven games prior to the bye.

Will a Team Finish the NFL Season 16-0?

Gronk Cam Newton AJ Green

The Patriots, Bengals and Panthers joined some elite company when they brought their records to 8-0, joining 16 other teams to reach that mark since 1980. Only one of those teams went on to go 16-0 (the 2007 Patriots), while two of the sixteen lost just once. To get even more specific, 14 of the 16 went 13-3 or better while 9 of the 16 finished 14-2 or better.


Nover: Falcons Not as Good as Record

Only four NFL teams have more victories than 6-3 Atlanta.

Are the Falcons really this good under first-year head coach Dan Quinn? That question was answered with a resounding no on the road against San Francisco last Sunday.

The Falcons were bet from seven-point favorites to as high as 9.5 against the 49ers. The marketplace was fully buying into fading the 49ers, who were starting Blaine Gabbert and without their three top running backs plus wide receiver Anquan Boldin and recently traded Vernon Davis.


Lions are Historically Awful in Green Bay

To say the Green Bay Packers have had the Detroit Lions’ number on the frozen tundra of Lambeau Field would be a massive understatement. The Lions, who are set to tangle with the Pack in Wisconsin on Sunday, have not won in Wisconsin in their last 24 attempts – a streak that stretches all the way back to 1991. Yes, the last time the Lions left Green Bay with a win Boyz II Men was just beginning to soar up the charts.
