NFL Betting – Beware of the Dogs

NFL Betting – Beware of the DogsWhen the Buffalo Bills upset the New York Jets on Thursday night – winning 22-17 as a 2.5-point road underdog, it triggered a crazy weekend of NFL action which saw a number of underdogs win outright.

Overall, underdogs went 12-2 against the pointspread, and an unbelievable 11-3 straight up. Backing all underdogs over the entire weekend against the pointspread would have resulted in a net profit of 7.7 units, while backing all underdogs over the entire weekend on the moneyline would have yielded an incredible 19.95 units of profit!

There were two incredible upsets this weekend, with both Green Bay and Cincinnati losing outright at home as double-digit favorites. The Packers lost their third game in a row as Detroit won in Lambeau Field for the first time since 1991.

In case you missed it, we detailed how the CFP Rankings affect the pointspread earlier this week. Here, we’ll review the top games for this weekend in College Football.

Clemson remains number one this week after surviving late against Florida State last Saturday.

The Tigers were tied with the Seminoles in the fourth quarter but found a way to come out on top – even if they didn’t cover a big 12.5-point number. This week Clemson has a much easier task on the field against Syracuse, but are tasked by this sportsbook and even a few korean sportsbook to cover a huge 28-point number.

Seahawks QB Wilson Pressured to sign

Seahawks QB Wilson pressured to signThis is now the 2nd time in 2015 that Seahawks QB Wilson is on the one yard line, and time is running out for his opportunity to make the dough. In the Super Bowl, it was offensive coordinator to make the call, and this week the call is on Wilson.  

Because if Wilson does not make an agreement for a contract extension when they open training camp this week, he could play this season for his small $1.545 million, then wait to get a franchise take in February of 2016.  

The reason, being that the Seahawks will not permit contract talks to extend into their training camp sessions.

College Football Betting – Week 6 Marquee Matchups

College Football Betting – Week 6 Marquee MatchupsThere are only two matchups this weekend featuring two teams ranked in the Top 25 – one in the Big Ten and the other out West in the Pac 12. Last weekend saw a number of key big upsets with four Top Ten teams all losing outright. Those results have shook up the rankings, as well as the public perception of many high profile teams.

The first such matchup by the online sportsbook has unbeaten Northwestern taking on 4-1 Michigan at the Big House. The Wildcats have climbed to #13 in the rankings, and Big Ten powers Ohio State and Michigan State not on their schedule this year, this sets up as one of the biggest games of the season for Northwestern.

Wildcats crushed Minnesota 27-0 last week as a small 3-point home favorite. Most preferred sportsbooks still don’t give NW credit, however, as Michigan is a huge 8-point home favorite. That line would suggest Michigan would be favored even if this game took place at Northwestern. The Wolverines also had a great game last week, beating Maryland 28-0 for their second straight shutout.
