Lions Favored to Have No.1 Pick in Draft

The Detroit Lions are firmly in last place in the NFL with an ugly 1-7 record through the first nine weeks of the season. The Lions schedule is also far from appealing, with two games against the Packers remaining, which has them currently listed as the +225 favorite to land the first overall pick in the upcoming NFL Draft according to Bovada.


Nover: Favored Seahawks in Must-Win

It's only mid-November, but it's not an exaggeration to say Seattle faces a make-or-break situation when hosting Arizona Sunday night.

If the 4-4 Seahawks lose to the 6-2 Cardinals, they fall three games behind in the NFC West division with seven games to go.

Things could really unravel for the Seahawks with a loss considering some of the personalities on the team and losing a division showdown in their beloved CenturyLink Field where they are 28-3 the past four seasons, 20-10-1 against the spread according to the OddsShark NFL Database.


NE/NYG Has Highest Total Of Season

If there's one thing bettors have become used to this season it's extremely high totals in New England Patriots games. This weekend the Patriots visit the New York Giants with a current total of 55.0, which would tie the highest total of the season so far. 

The previous 12 games this season that have closed with the total of 50.0 or higher have an OVER/UNDER record of 3-8-1.

Of the 12 games to post a closing total of 50.0 or higher, the average combined score has been 45.7 points.


Thursday Night Football: Bills vs Jets

Rex Ryan Bills Coach

The Week 10 edition of Thursday Night Football pits heated rivals the Buffalo Bills and New York Jets in a primetime AFC East grudge match at MetLife Stadium. According to recent history, the home team has had a considerable leg up at the betting window in this matchup. In the last six times the clubs have met, the home side is 5-1 ATS – a trend that will certainly appeal to bettors of the Jets. 

On the other side of the coin, the Bills have been a lights out play when tabbed as underdogs as of late. Buffalo, who opened as 3-point underdogs, is 5-1 ATS in their previous six games as dogs.

Long time Jets head coach Rex Ryan will be making his return to New York for the first time since joining the Bills in the offseason. Ryan’s squad has had an up and down season at 4-4 SU, but if we’ve come to learn anything from the outspoken bench boss, it’s that he’s most likely circled this one on his calendar.

NFL Week 10 Betting Trends Analysis

This past week was just the second time the Detroit Lions didn't lose. The Lions were helped immeasurably by being idle.

The Lions not only have the worst record in the NFL at 1-7, but they also have the worst point spread mark, too, at 1-7.

It wasn't an uneventful bye week, though, for the Lions. Team president Tom Lewand and general manager Martin Mayhew were fired.

Now the Lions resume play with a road game against Green Bay. Do you know the year the Lions last beat the Packers in Wisconsin? Take a Scott Mitchell bobble head prize if you correctly guessed 1991.


NFL Week 10 Opening Odds Analysis

There is only one team in the NFL with the mystique, public backing and record to make the New York Giants a touchdown underdog at home. The New England Patriots are that team.

The Patriots have won 11 in a row going back to last season, compiling a 7-3-1 against the spread (ATS) mark. Bookmakers opened New England as a 7-point favorite on the road against the Giants.


Bears Have Been Solid ATS vs Rams

The Edward Jones Dome is the site of Week 10’s clash between the St. Louis Rams and Chicago Bears, which will appeal to bettors of the hometown side. The Rams (4-4 SU, 4-4 ATS) have covered the spread three times in front of the St. Louis faithful this season with the OVER/UNDER going 1-3 during that span.

Shark Bites
  • The Bears are 5-2 ATS in their last seven games against the Rams.
  • The Rams are 5-1 ATS in their last six games in Week 10.
  • The total has gone OVER in 10 of the Rams' last 14 games in November.

Chicago has rebounded from an ugly 0-3 start to win three out of its next five but still sits behind the Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings for third place in the NFC North. The Bears topped San Diego by a score of 22-19 in the Week 9 edition of Monday Night Football while covering the +3.5 spread in the process.

St. Louis was on the wrong end things against Minnesota in Week 9 but have recently performed well after suffering a loss. The Rams are 3-1 SU and ATS in their last four games after dropping the previous matchup.

Titans Have Been Awful at Home

Titans Football

The Carolina Panthers and Tennessee Titans head into their Week 10 matchup in Nashville riding a high. Carolina is coming off a big home win over the Green Bay Packers, while the Titans garnered a much needed 34-28 victory over the New Orleans Saints in Mike Mularkey’s debut as the team’s interim head coach.

The trends aren’t working in Tennessee’s favor in this one, however. The Titans have been unexplainably bad at home in recent appearances, dropping each of their last nine games at Nissan Stadium. Stringing together solid back to back performances has also been a monumental task for the squad. Tennessee is 0-10 SU and ATS in its last 10 games following an ATS win.

Carolina ranks as one of the three unbeaten teams in the NFL at 8-0 SU and has continued to prove their naysayers wrong this season. The Cats have been a strong play for their bettors as well, entering the matchup with the Titans with 6-2 ATS record.
