NFL Lines: It was a solid bounce back last week with the Against the Grain picks as we went 3-2. That brings the season record to 23-17-1 against the NFL betting odds. The public is strongly behind five teams this week which means we have five plays as we go against the public. It is no surprise that most of the plays this week are underdogs as the public loves to back favorites but it is somewhat surprising that all five of our plays this week are on home teams.Let’s look at all five games and NFL lines.
Monday Night Football Odds: The Dallas Cowboys are laying double-digits to the Washington Redskins on Monday on ESPN. The Dallas Cowboys are the hottest team in the NFL having won their last six games and they have also been very good against the spread going 5-2. The Washington Redskins are coming off a win last week but they are still just 2-5 on the season and they could be going with third-string quarterback Colt McCoy for this game on Monday night.Here is a look at the game and Monday Night Football picks.
Football Odds: A matchup of top NFC teams takes place on Sunday as the 5-1 Philadelphia Eagles visit the 5-1 Arizona Cardinals. This could easily be a playoff preview considering how the two teams are playing this season. The Philadelphia Eagles feature the third best offense in the NFL as they are averaging 30 points per game while the Arizona Cardinals have the fifth best defense in the NFL as they are allowing just under 20 points per game. The Arizona Cardinals are slight home favorites in this contest.Here is a look at the contest and free football picks.
NFL Betting Odds: It should be a shootout on Sunday Night Football on NBC as Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers visit Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints. Oddsmakers have made the total on the game 55.5 which is the highest number so far this season. It is hard to argue as the Green Bay Packers have looked unstoppable on offense the past four weeks, averaging more than 36 points per game while the New Orleans Saints normally score a lot of points at home in the Superdome.Here is a look at the matchup and NFL betting picks.
Pro Football Lines: The Oakland Raiders will try and get their first win of the season as they visit the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. It would seem to be a realistic spot for the Oakland Raiders but oddsmakers have made the Cleveland Browns a touchdown favorite. The Cleveland Browns were blown out last week by the Jacksonville Jaguars who got their first win of the season. It could be time for Johnny Football in Cleveland if the Browns lose consecutive games to winless teams.Here is a look at Sunday’s games and pro football picks.
NFL Odds: The red-hot Indianapolis Colts visit the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday with the road team favored. The Indianapolis Colts have won five straight games since losing their first two games of the season with quarterback Andrew Luck leading the way. Luck leads an offense that is second in the league in points per game. On the other side, the Pittsburgh Steelers are coming off a Monday night win against the Houston Texans that got them to 4-3 on the season.Here is a look at what should be a high scoring game and NFL predictions.
Week 8 NFL Odds: Two struggling teams meet on Sunday as the Houston Texans visit the Tennessee Titans. The Houston Texans have dropped their last three games to fall to 3-4 on the season while the Tennessee Titans have lost five of their last six games. The Houston Texans opened as a slight favorite in this contest with the total in the low 40’s. The winner of this game might be able to say they still have faint playoff hopes while the loser will be looking to next season.Here is a look at the matchup and Week 8 NFL picks.
NFL Line: The Miami Dolphins will look to get above .500 on Sunday as they visit the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Miami Dolphins are coming off a big win last week in Chicago and now they are favored at the Jacksonville Jaguars. This would seem to be a game that the Miami Dolphins should win but the Jacksonville Jaguars did get their first win of the season last week and they come into this contest with some momentum. The Miami Dolphins are listed as 5-point road favorites.Here is a look at the contest and NFL picks.
NFL Game Lines: The New England Patriots are laying nearly a touchdown at home on Sunday vs. the Chicago Bears. The New England Patriots come into this contest at 5-2 and with extra rest since they played the Thursday game more than a week ago while the Chicago Bears are 3-4 and coming off a bad home loss to the Miami Dolphins. Both teams feature potent offenses and suspect defenses so this game could turn into a shootout between Jay Cutler and Tom Brady.Here is a look at the matchup and NFL predictions.
NFL Football Odds: The Buffalo Bills visit the New York Jets on Sunday in what should be a low scoring game. Oddsmakers posted a total of 41 for this contest and that is the lowest number of any game in Week 8. The Buffalo Bills come into this game at 4-3 and feature a defense that is ranked in the Top 10 in the league in fewest points allowed while the New York Jets are 1-6 and have an offense that is one of the worst in the league. The New York Jets are actually home favorites in this game.Here is a look at the matchup and NFL football picks.
Week 8 NFL Odds: The Kansas City Chiefs are favored at home on Sunday as they host the St. Louis Rams in the Battle of Missouri. Both teams are coming off big wins last week as the St. Louis Rams upset the defending champion Seattle Seahawks while the Kansas City Chiefs went on the road and ended the San Diego Chargers winning streak. The question in this game is whether either team will have a letdown after their big wins last week?Here is a look at the matchup and Week 8 NFL picks.
NFL Spreads: It is a battle for first place in the AFC North on Sunday as the Baltimore Ravens visit the Cincinnati Bengals. The Baltimore Ravens come into the game at 5-2 overall and having won two straight while the Cincinnati Bengals are 3-2-1 but winless in their last three games. These teams met in Week 1 and it was the Cincinnati Bengals winning 23-16 on the road in Baltimore. Both teams are playing much differently than they were back in Week 1. The Cincinnati Bengals opened up as slight favorites in this contest for Sunday.Here is a look at the game and NFL picks against the spread.
NFL Betting Lines: The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are slight favorites at home on Sunday as they host the Minnesota Vikings. Both teams come into this contest playing poorly as the Minnesota Vikings have just two wins on the season while the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have just one. Despite the fact that they have just a single victory on the season, the Bucs are favored at home in this contest. It is expected to be a low scoring contest as the total on the game at 42.5 is the second lowest of any game in Week 8.Here is a look at the matchup and NFL betting picks.
NFL Betting Odds: The defending Super Bowl champs, the Seattle Seahawks, will look to break their two-game losing streak as they visit the Carolina Panthers on Sunday. The champs have not played nearly as well defensively and their special teams have been very poor this season. The offense has looked better and Russell Wilson is showing he is an elite quarterback but the good fortune the team had last year has not been evident this season.Here is a look at Sunday’s game and free NFL picks.
NFL Odds: It is a very early start on Sunday as the Detroit Lions play the Atlanta Falcons in London, England. Normally the games on Sunday start at 1 pm Eastern but this game will start at 9:30 am Eastern. The game can be seen nationally on FOX television. Tickets for the game in London sold out in two weeks so more than 83,000 will be in attendance. It will be the second of three games in London this season as the Cowboys and Jaguars will play early next month.Here is a look at the matchup and NFL predictions.
NFL Betting Odds: It is a battle for first place in the AFC West on Thursday night on CBS and NFL Network as the San Diego Chargers visit the Denver Broncos. Each team has started the season strongly and you can make a case that the winner of this team will be one of the favorites in the AFC to make it to the Super Bowl. The San Diego Chargers will be road underdogs against Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos but keep in mind that the San Diego Chargers have taken 6 of the last 10 on the road in Denver.Here is a look at the matchup and NFL betting picks.
Monday Night Football Odds: The Houston Texans have shown better than expected betting value so far in 2014 after their Titanic of a season in 2013 as head coach Bill O’Brien has improved team focus and discipline but the metrics of the Houston Texans are still indicative of a team that will struggle to maintain success both on the field and at the betting window. The Pittsburgh Steelers are sporting much improved metrics, especially on offense, but that has not translated into consistent success with the betting line as of yet. The Pittsburgh Steelers will host the Houston Texans on ESPN Monday Night Football with coverage starting at 8:30 PM ET.Let’s look at the contest and Monday Night Football picks.
NFL Odds: It is bounce back time in Week 7 for the Against the Grain picks as last week they went just 1-3-1. That brings the season record to 20-15-1. The public is still down for the season but they did bounce back last week and since we go against the public each week that meant a losing week. There are five games that the public really likes for Week 7 and surprisingly, one of the games they like is an underdog. Normally the public plays all favorites but there is one exception this week.Here is a look at all of the games.
NFL Odds: After a slow start the San Francisco 49ers have reverted back to their old formula of pounding the rock on offense and slamming the door on defense to jump back into the NFC West Division race. The Denver Broncos are again using their proven formula for success, at least for the regular season, which is to hand the offense to future Hall of Fame QB Peyton Manning and then clear out of the way. The Denver Broncos will host the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday Night with coverage on NBC starting at 8:30 PM ET.Let’s look at the contest and NFL picks.
NFL Lines: After making the playoffs last year in the first year with head coach Andy Reid and QB Alex Smith the Kansas City Chiefs have struggled with injuries, inconsistency, and a much tougher schedule so far in 2014. The San Diego Chargers have proven to be the “Real McCoy” under head coach Mike McCoy as their momentum built from last year’s late season playoff drive has been maintained so far in 2014. The San Diego Chargers will host the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday with coverage on CBS starting at 4:05 PM ET.Let’s look at the contest and free NFL picks.
NFL Odds: The red-hot Dallas Cowboys will host the New York Giants on Sunday in a game that can be seen on FOX. The Dallas Cowboys are making a case that they are the best team in the NFL as they come into this game at 5-1 and off a win against the defending Super Champion Seahawks in Seattle. The New York Giants had been playing better until last week when they completely laid an egg in a shutout loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. The Dallas Cowboys will host the New York Giants on Sunday with coverage on FOX starting at 4:25 PM ET.Let’s look at the contest and NFL picks.
NFL Odds: For the current generation of NFL fans and bettors it is impossible to fathom that the Oakland Raiders were once upon a time the most successful and winningest pro sports franchise for a 25 year period before the late Al Davis lost it and the Oakland Raiders have never been able to recover and restore the roar of the Coliseum where they now wallow as the worst team in the NFL. The Arizona Cardinals have often been in the positon of being one of the worst teams in the NFL but not lately has head coach Bruce Arians has transformed them into a top shelf NFC playoff contender. The Oakland Raiders will host the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday with coverage on FOX starting at 4:25 PM ET.Let’s look at the contest and NFL predictions.
NFL Odds: The Miami Dolphins remain one of the most challenging handicaps in the NFL as their inconsistency is their one consistency that makes them difficult to get a read on. The Chicago Bears have gone through a massive personality transformation under second year head coach Mark Trestman as their defense has been rendered helpless more often than not and QB Jay Cutler remains an enigma and unfulfilled promise. The Chicago Bears will host the Miami Dolphins at Soldier Field on Sunday with coverage on CBS starting at 1 PM ET.Let’s look at the contest and NFL predictions.
NFL Lines: The defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks have maintained the same recipe for success that they have used the past two seasons as they have combined a top notch ground attack with a defense that remains one of the best in the NFL. Their problem as defending champs is that every team is ready for them this season. The St. Louis Rams season ended before it even started when QB Sam Bradford went down to injury as their defense is among the worst in the NFL and the offense is not there to make up the difference. The St. Louis Rams will host the Seattle Seahawks at the Edwards Jones Dome Sunday with coverage on FOX starting at 1 PM ET.Let’s look at the contest and free NFL picks.
NFL Lines: The Green Bay Packers may be in the thick of the race in the NFC North but have the metrics of a team that is nowhere near championship status and of a team that could go bust both on the field and at the betting window. The Carolina Panthers have shown a drop in defensive production that is a cause for concern as their offense remains inconsistent and the rushing attack virtually nonexistent. The Green Bay Packers will host the Carolina Panthers at Lambeau Field on Sunday with coverage on FOX starting at 1 PM ET.Let’s look at the contest and NFL predictions.
