Joe Osborne, Andrew Avery, Iain MacMillan and Pamela Maldonado have a slate of bets covering Thursday Night Football and much more on today’s Guys & Bets.
Joe’s up first and takes a look at the Thursday Night Football matchup with the Arizona Cardinals in Seattle to take on the Seahawks. We all saw the unbelievable ending the Cardinals had in their last game against the Bills with DeAndre Hopkins snagging a Hail Mary over three Buffalo defenders to win the game. That win propelled Arizona into a three-way tie for first place in the NFC West with Seattle and the Los Angeles Rams at 6-3. With Russell Wilson on one side and Kyler Murray on the other, sit back and enjoy the game.
Iain is also looking at a bet for the Thursday Night Football matchup, but he’s looking at the total. These are two of the more enjoyable offenses to watch in the NFL as each side likes to air it out and keep you on the edge of your seat. Wilson leads the NFL in touchdown passes with 28 and has one on the ground while his counterpart has 17 touchdowns through the air and 10 on the ground.
Ninja heads to the pitch for a couple of picks, with his first being in the English Premier League. Newcastle and Chelsea play on Saturday and Ninja is looking at a goal total for his bet. Chelsea sits fifth in the Premier League through eight games but leads the league in scoring with 20 goals. Can the Blues keep that up heading to a stadium where they haven’t had much success?
Over in Spain, Atletico Madrid and Barcelona are set to square off in a very important match for both sides. Atletico comes into this match having won four of its last five overall with the other result being a draw. They find themselves at 5-2 and in third place, led by the boots of Joao Felix and Luis Suarez, who lead the club with five goals apiece. A win for Atletico would be absolutely massive for their title chances.
Finally, the 7-0 and seventh-ranked Cincinnati Bearcats are on the road to face the Central Florida Knights this Saturday and that’s where Pam is going for her bets this week. Pam likes a play on the spread and the total as the Bearcats continue their promising march. In their seven wins this season, the Bearcats’ closest game was a 24-10 win over then 22nd-ranked Army. Cincinnati is outscoring opponents by an average of 29 points per game this season and will look to keep rolling against a Knights squad that owns a record of 5-2.
