Cowboys, Packers Head ATS Trends

NFL fans who enjoy trend betting love it when they find a solid angle and love it even more when they find two or more angles that support the same trend.

Opening Odds: Steelers Ravens Betting

The spread favors the visiting Chargers, but not by much and the total is sticking at 44.5 - those are just two of hundreds of Monday Night Football bet types on the board tonight.

The Chiefs are +3.5 at home according to Bovada, which has the best Chiefs number. Bur what about Philip Rovers passing yards or who will be the first player to score a TD?


Monday Night Betting: SD vs KC

Seahawks vs Bengals Wagering Preview

Cincinnati has been a lousy bet following its bye week the past dozen years, but this year's Bengal team is different from years past.

The Bengals are just 3-9 ATS in 12 post-bye games dating back to 2000. But they get a weak Seahawks that managed just a field goal in losing 6-3 to Cleveland last week.

Cincy is favored by just a point and maye be great value. More than 60% of the betting action is on the Bengals here according to Consensus data here at


Browns open as underdog vs 49ers

There are very few sure things in NFL betting but one angle that appears in this game has been perfect 11 seasons in row.

When the San Francisco 49ers come out of a bye week, they play OVER. Maintaining that trend in 2011 could be challenging facing the sluggish Cleveland Browns, 6-3 winners against Seattle last week.

The Browns opened as double-digit favorites as they continue their surprising 5-1 start. If the trend holds up, the total will be the best bet. The best OVER line was at 5Dimes late Saturday, check the latest Sunday.


Steelers Patriots Week 8 Betting Preview

The Steelers look dangerous again after consecutive wins but they run into a Patriots team that has been dominant after its bye week in recent seasons.

The Patriots have won and covered six in a row on the road after a bye and they are small favorites here in Steeltown. The best OVER number late Saturday was at BetOnline at 52, -110.
