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.
The Atlanta Falcons are one of only three unbeaten teams left in the NFL after three weeks. The Falcons blasted San Diego last week on the road, and now they return home to face a divisional foe. Carolina was blitzed at home last week by the New York Giants, but the Panthers do have the ability to be a difficult matchup for the Falcons. Let’s take a look at this NFC South matchup.
Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers were actually favored last Thursday night at home against the dinged up Giants, but New York won 36-7 in an embarrassing game for the Panthers.

The Chiefs are hoping to make the AFC West race a heck of a lot closer, and they’ll do just that if they can pull the upset in this game. The Chargers are a game up in the AFC West right now on the rest of the pack. If they win, they’ll be two up on Kansas City and two up on the loser of the Denver/Oakland game. If they lose, there will be three teams at the top of the division when we all wake up on Monday morning.
BetAnySports.com is back with another great set of NFL betting props for the NFL Network’s Thursday Night Football. Join us for the Baltimore Ravens vs. Cleveland Browns prop picks for this AFC North duel at M&T Bank Stadium.
Ray Rice To Score a First Half Touchdown (+120): It’s a little ballsy to make a play on a prop like this one, but we are basically banking on Rice to have one of the first two Baltimore touchdowns, essentially.
A perfect example of this was the 75 percent of betting people who backed the Green Bay Packers in the Monday night game against the Seattle Seahawks. According to reports out of Vegas an estimated 300 million dollars switched hands on that one play and anyone who had Green Bay is still smarting from the loss.
The public tends to jump on popular teams or teams that are off a big win and have proven they can win early in the season.
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.
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.
