Thursday Night Football Betting Odds: Will double-digit home dog trend continue?

12.06.2012     01:35 PM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Denver -10 at Oakland O/U 48.5

If there is one positive for the Oakland Raiders tonight it's that they're a double-digit home underdog. Historically, it's been a very profitable profile with 56% winners (35-28 ATS) dating back to 2000. Of late, it has been even stronger with nine straight cashes and a 19-8 ATS mark since 2009. That trend however hasn't deterred a majority of bettors from supporting the Denver Broncos for tonight’s Thursday night contest. According to Bookmaker, 71% of side bets have been placed on the chalk.

NFL Handicapping: Carolina fired up for another shot at Atlanta

12.06.2012     10:40 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Atlanta -3.5 at Carolina O/U 48

Carolina doesn't have a lot to play for the rest of the season but it's had Sunday's game against Atlanta circled after the Falcons won on a last second field goal back in Week 4.

"I think we marked this day down since (then)," Johnson said. "He had all due respect to say that. Hey, you got to come in our house now."

"I'm trying to mess up their whole playoff experience. I want them to go home sick in the stomach, mad about life, a couple depression issues, all types of things," Hardy said.

"It's going to be a long day from my point of view. I'm coming."

NFL Gambling Notes: Arizona goes with Skelton vs. Seattle

12.06.2012     08:26 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Arizona at Seattle -10 O/U 35.5

No team in the NFL – including the New York Jets – has it as bad as Arizona when it comes to quarterback play. Kevin Kolb was serviceable (86.1 QB rating) before getting hurt in Week 6. Since then, it's been Ryan Lindley and John Skelton. After starting the season 4-0, the Cardinals have lost eight straight and averaged 11.8 ppg during that span. Note that they've scored six points in their last six quarters. Skelton was named the starter for Sunday's game at Seattle.

Teddy Covers' Wiseguy Report: Looking at the contenders in the AFC

12.03.2012     09:49 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers blog entry.
I spent the last few Sunday’s concentrating on some pretty bad football teams. It’s December now; time to shift my focus towards the other end of the spectrum. This week, I focused on four AFC Playoff contenders. Which teams have the potential to do some damage when January rolls around and which are frauds? Read on to find out!

Indianapolis - Indy is certainly not a Super Bowl contender. But given that they were seven point underdogs at 4-7 Detroit, the betting markets aren’t even calling the Colts a playoff caliber team. Even with starting cornerback Vontae Davis back in the lineup following a four game injury absence, the pass defense spent all afternoon getting torched. Where's the pass rush? Dwight Freeney and Robert Mathis were non-factors here.

The offensive line got dominated by Detroit’s front four for most of the afternoon. Andrew Luck was beaten up, taking one big hit after the next. Coming into the game with four fumbles and 10 INTs in five previous road games, Luck's emphasis was on ball security here. That emphasis didn’t work. He hit seven different receivers in the first half, but also threw a pair Read more

Parlay bettor crushed following Eagles' meaningless punt return touchdown

12.03.2012     08:25 AM     Printer Friendly
We don't know whether these "bad beat" stories are true or not, but if this one is indeed accurate, it has to rank up there with one of the year’s worst. So this dude supposedly hits the first seven games of his eight-teamer heading into Sunday night's Dallas-Philadelphia game. For starters, it is one of the kookiest parlays we’ve ever seen; littered with point buying and two random moneyline underdogs. Anyway, he had Dallas -9.5, and the Cowboys were up 38-27 and punting with 40 seconds remaining in the game. Of course with this being the NFL (and Week 13), the Eagles took the punt to the house – Dallas won 38-33. The bettor stood to win $18K.

NFL Gambling Preview: Houston Texans at Tennessee Titans

Houston at Tennessee
Teddy Covers' Recommendation: Tennessee
Sunday, 10 am PT - CBS
CRIS Opener:
Houston -4.5 O/U 48
CRIS Current: Houston -6.5 O/U 47

Houston is in their single worst spot of the entire season.  The Texans played an OT barnburner in Detroit last week, escaping with a hard fought three point win.  The previous week, the Texans pulled a ‘refuse-to-lose’ at home against the Jags, rallying from two TD’s behind in the fourth quarter for another OT win.  The week before that, the Texans were in a tough, physical game at Chicago in nasty, cold conditions that also was a one score game throughout.  That’s three consecutive ‘max effort’ games in a row.

Up next for Houston?  An AFC showdown at New England on Monday Night Football, with a chance to put themselves firmly in position for homefield edge throughout the playoffs.  In between those previous games and the Monday Read more

NFL Handicapping: Buffalo Bills playing better defense since bye week

11.30.2012     11:50 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Jacksonville at Buffalo 6 O/U 44.5

Article from Pro Football Weekly on the noticeable improvement of Buffalo's defense over the last month. The Bills have gone under the total in three of their last four games.

“Everybody coming together and doing their part and knowing exactly what they’re doing,” he explained. “(We are) playing with more confidence within the scheme instead of trying to figure out what to do and second-guessing. Guys are now getting used to playing different techniques, playing the two, three, me playing 'Will' linebacker. We’re getting it all together and getting our confidence where it needs to be.”
