Oakland Raiders vs. Denver Broncos Pick

Two of the most hated rivals in football betting action will meet on Sunday afternoon at Mile High, where the Denver Broncos will face off with the Oakland Raiders.

Oakland has had all sorts of success in this series over the course of the last few years, and all of it really spurns around the offense. Even though this is a team that has historically struggled quite a bit on the offensive side of the ball, and the Raiders have been through a ton of quarterbacks, they just keep scoring big time points against the Broncos.

Minnesota Vikings vs. Detroit Lions Pick

NFC North foes battle it out in what is becoming one of the most intriguing games of the week in NFL betting action, as the Detroit Lions will fight it out with the Minnesota Vikings.

Sure, we’re only a few games into the season, but the Vikings all of a sudden might find themselves in the thick of the playoff race, especially if they can figure out how to win this game. Taking QB Christian Ponder in the first round of the NFL Draft was considered a massive reach, but perhaps Minnesota knew what it was doing.

NFL Betting Trends – Wagering on the Underdogs

The 2012 NFL regular season is only three weeks old and we have already seen our fair share of shocking results. There are only three undefeated teams left (Atlanta, Arizona, and Houston) and the two preseason favorites to meet in this year’s Super Bowl (Green Bay and New England) are a combined 2-4.

What this has meant for anyone who enjoys wagering on the games is a number of golden opportunities to cash-in on these crazy results if they were bold enough to think ‘outside the box’. The first big money maker this season has been the surprising Cardinals at 3-0 both straight-up and against the spread. If you would have wagered $100 on the money line for each of their games, you would be up a healthy $895.
