2015 NFC East Season Odds Preview

Led by DeMarco Murray, the NFL's Offensive Player of the Year, the Dallas Cowboys beat the odds last season, winning 12 games to earn their first NFC East title since 2009 after opening the season as longshots.

Murray is gone, but the Cowboys still look toward the 2015 NFL season as slim +140 favorites to repeat as divisional champs at Bovada.

The Philadelphia Eagles wrapped up a disappointing 2014 NFL campaign with 10 wins, missing the postseason for the third time in the last four years.


2015 NFC North Season Odds Preview

After winning 12 games in 2014 to claim their fourth consecutive NFC North title and earn a bye on the first weekend of the postseason, the Green Bay Packers are perched as strong -275 favorites on the odds to win the NFC North in 2015 at Bovada.


2015 NFC South Season Odds Preview

The Carolina Panthers staged an improbable run to the playoffs last season, winning five of their final six games to finish their campaign with a 7-8-1 record, good for top spot in the underachieving NFC South.

With quarterback Cam Newton, who piloted the Panthers to last year's division title and playoff berth, entering the final year of his rookie contract, Carolina is just a step behind the Atlanta Falcons at +210 to claim their third straight NFC South title at Bovada.


2015 NFC West Season Odds Preview

Following a strong 12-4 campaign, the defending NFC champion Seattle Seahawks head toward the upcoming season as -275 favorites at Bovada to claim their third straight NFC West division title.

The Seahawks stumbled out of the gate last season, losing three of their first six games, before winning nine of their last 10, including five wins against divisional opponents, while holding opponents to seven or fewer points in five of their final six regular season games.


Bengals vs Bucs: Monday Night Betting

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are listed as home favorites at the online sportsbooks for Monday night as they play host to the Cincinnati Bengals at Raymond James Stadium in a primetime matchup on ESPN.

The Bucs lost 26-16 on the road to the Minnesota Vikings in their preseason opener last week as a 3.5-point underdog on the NFL odds in an OVER result, with new Tampa Bay starting quarterback Jameis Winston completing just nine of his 19 pass attempts for 131 yards with an interception in the game.


Bills vs Browns: NFL Preseason Betting

The Buffalo Bills are listed as road underdogs at the online sportsbooks for their ESPN preseason primetime matchup against the Cleveland Browns on Thursday night as they try to further sort out their quarterback situation.

At 5Dimes the Bills are listed as 3-point underdogs on the NFL odds for Thursday's game, and the contest should be another showcase for the team's three-man competition to be the starting quarterback to begin the regular season.


NFL Preseason Week 2 Matchups, Odds

Will Sam Bradford make his Philadelphia Eagles preseason debut this week? The oft-injured quarterback sat out his team's exhibition opener last week, but could see the field this week at home with his team a 3.5-point betting favorite at 5Dimes against the Baltimore Ravens.

The Eagles won and easily paid out on the NFL betting lines in their first game of the preseason last week, beating the Indianapolis Colts 36-10 with the other three quarterbacks on the roster all getting some time on the field.


NFL Week 1 Odds: Patriots Still Favored

Tom Brady is still in line for a Week 1 suspension and Jimmy Garoppolo didn't set the world on fire in his preseason debut, but the New England Patriots are still sitting as betting favorites at the online sportsbooks for their opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers on September 10.


Colts vs Packers: Super Bowl 50 Chalk

A Super Bowl 50 matchup between the Indianapolis Colts and the Green Bay Packers is the betting favorite at the online sportsbooks with the NFL's preseason schedule now underway.

At 5Dimes a Colts vs. Packers matchup at Super Bowl 50 next February is sitting as the +1300 favorite, despite the fact that both teams were bounced from the postseason last year in their respective conference championship games.


Will New NFL PAT Rule Affect Bettors?

Will sports bettors be praising or cursing the NFL's new single point rule during the 2015 season? How the rule change affects the game - and specifically the game score - will be something to watch in the preseason and the start of the regular season.

For 2015 the NFL has moved single-point converts back to the 15-yard line, making it a 33-yard attempt for kickers. Last season a single point was only a 20-yard kick and the results were almost automatic as teams made 99.3% of those attempts, missing just eight of 1230 on the season.
