The New England Patriots are taking to the road this week for one of their most important road trips of the season in NFL betting action, as they take on the Seattle Seahawks at CenturyLink Field.
The Pats have quietly covered three in a row, and they have put at least 30 on the board in all three of those games. They’re still just a 3-2 team that could be in some trouble if this one is dropped, but in the end,
Two teams that are surprisingly up and coming this year are going to meet in South Beach for some NFL betting action this week, as the St. Louis Rams try to tackle the Miami Dolphins.
Give St. Louis a heck of a lot of credit. It was able to take down the previously unbeaten Arizona Cardinals last week on Thursday Night Football, and now, it is one of the teams right in the middle of the pack for the NFC playoffs.
Here at Bang the Book, we have all of the top matchups of the 2012 NFL betting campaign covered! Today, we’re taking a look at the best matchups for Week 6!
The name of the game here on Thursday Night Football is sticking around for the push for the playoffs in the AFC. The Titans are probably said and done with four losses already, especially knowing how many insanely difficult games are still on the docket for a team that was a second place outfit last year. Pittsburgh though, still clearly has all to play for at 2-2.
Arch rivals from the AFC are going to meet in a crucial tilt of teams that are trying to get back in the AFC playoff picture. The Pittsburgh Steelers will go on the road to take on the Tennessee Titans.
The Steelers at least looked remotely healthy for a half of football or so in last week’s win over the Philadelphia Eagles. RB Rashard Mendenhall came back to the fold and gave some life to a running game that had been completed drab, while both LB James Harrison and S Troy Polamalu came back after missing games with various injuries.
NFC West rivals that are hoping to get into the playoffs this year are going to battle it out in a crucial tilt at the Edward Jones Dome for Thursday Night Football betting action this week, as the St. Louis Rams face the Arizona Cardinals.
Arizona’s defense had its first atrocious game last week, as the yardage just kept piling up against the Miami Dolphins. QB Ryan Tannehill, a rookie playing in just his fourth ever game, threw for over 400 yards, and the secondary just had no answers whatsoever.
When the College Football Week 6 Odds were released all eyes were on the SEC.
The SEC is arguably the best football conference in college football and often gets plenty of media attention, but this week they deserve it. With some of the top teams facing off in Week 6, many of the football betting fans rushed to the sportsbooks on Sunday to see what they opening lines were on these two quality matchups for Week 6.
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.
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.
Two teams that used to take up residence in the Dawg Pound are going to meet on the NFL Network’s Thursday Night Football betting festivities in Week 4, as the Cleveland Browns take on the Baltimore Ravens.
This is going to be a tough draw for the Browns, knowing that they are already facing an 0-3 start to the season and now have to get ready for the Baltimore no-huddle attack with just three days of preparation.
It is never too early to take a look at the college football odds, and here at Bang the Book we like to get a look at the odds the moment they are released. The reason for the early look is to get the numbers when they are fresh before they are bet up by the pros and lose their value.
Here is a look at several games on the college football schedule for week 5 that have value.
