Defending Champions Still Alive

Defending Champions Still Alive
NFL Odds: Eagles, Bears Wrap up the Wild-Card Weekend

The defending champions are still alive – barely. After sweeping their last three regular-season games SU and ATS, the Philadelphia Eagles (9-7 SU, 7-9 ATS) have earned the No. 6 seed in the NFC, and a Wild-Card game this Sunday, January 6, against the No. 3 Chicago Bears (12-4 SU and ATS). Kick-off from Soldier Field is at 4:40 PM ET on NBC.

Despite their recent hot streak, the Eagles are holding steady as 6-point road dogs at press time, with the total unchanged at 41. Just like last year’s Super Bowl run, it’ll be Nick Foles at quarterback for Philly after incumbent starter Carson Wentz (fractured vertebra) went on the injured list in Week 14. However, the Eagles also have multiple injuries on their defense, leaving them as distant +3000 long shots to win Super Bowl LIII.

Chicago (+675) have much better odds as the NFC North champions. They’re healthy for the most part, and they feature the league’s best defense, although the Bears lack scoring punch with sophomore QB Mitchell Trubisky (24 TDs, 12 INTs) at the controls. His job on Sunday is to avoid making mistakes, and take advantage of the generous field position his defense will try to provide.

Cardinals versus Chargers NFL Week 12

Cardinals versus Chargers NFL Week 12 Odds & Pick
Written by Henry Watkins on November 22, 2018

NFL Betting News
It’s usually about this stage of the NFL season when the real Super Bowl contenders begin to separate from the rest of the pack. Generally speaking, you have 3 or 4 teams that start to seriously compete for the top 2 spots in each conference. That battle is raging particularly hard in the AFC, where the Chiefs and Steelers are currently leading the way, with a couple of teams hot on their heels. One of the teams that are right in the thick of the action is the LA Chargers, although they are not getting many of the headlines in the AFC.
The reason why they have been going under the radar may well be because of their performance in recent years. The Chargers have been consistently good, but they have made a habit of coming up just short in big games and playoff pushes. They can potentially creep into the top two in the conference with a win over the Arizona Cardinals this weekend, a game that they will start as a 13-point favorite, with the point total set at 44 ½.

Broncos Chargers Spread Pick

Broncos Chargers Spread Pick – How to Bet Broncos vs Chargers NFL Week 11 Spread & Pick
Written by Henry Watkins on November 14, 2018

Prior to the start of each NFL season, we all have an idea of how each team will play and perform based on what they have done in seasons past. We know which teams will be all about playing offense, while we also have an idea as to which teams will lean a little more heavily on their defensive and special teams units. In the case of the LA Chargers, we have come to expect a team that will come out and struggles early, only to get back to form a little too late to save their season.
That has not been the case with this version of the Chargers, though, as they are quietly moving up the rankings in the AFC, to the point where a first-round bye in the playoffs could well be in their future. The Chargers are on a hot streak at the moment and will look to extend that run when they host the Denver Broncos this coming weekend. The Chargers are in as a 7 ½ point favorite, with the O/U set at 46 ½.

Seahawks versus Rams NFL Betting Prediction

Jared Goff Seahawks versus Rams NFL Betting Prediction will look to bounce back from their first loss of the season when they host Russell Wilson and a Seattle Seahawks team that is also looking to rebound from its own Week 9 defeat. If you’re ready to find out which one of these teams is offering the best betting value in this NFC West divisional showdown, then let’s get to my expert pick right now.

Why Consider Betting On Seattle?
Why should you consider betting on Seattle in this Week 10 divisional matchup? There are several good reasons actually. First, the Seahawks are getting a whopping 10 points and that figure does look a little bit inflated seeing as how six of the last 10 meetings between these two have been decided by six points or less with three of those being decided by a field goal or less. Next…Seattle is ranked sixth in points allowed (19.5 ppg), so they’ve clearly got a pretty solid defense.

Why Bet On the Los Angeles Chargers?
Why should you bet on the Chargers in Week 9? There are several great reasons like the fact that the Bolts have the higher scoring offense in this matchup. The, there’s also the fact that Los Angeles is on a nice roll, having won four straight games coming into this contest including their narrow 20-19 home win over Tennessee two weeks ago.

Another great reason is that the Chargers are well-rested after getting a bye last weekend. Last but not least, L.A. has an outstanding quarterback in veteran Philip Rivers that really doesn’t have to take a back seat to anyone not named Drew Brees, Tom Brady or Aaron Rodgers.

NFL Betting Tips on How to Handicap Fading Teams

NFL Betting Tips on How to Handicap Fading Teams
Written by Jordan Walters on July 14, 2017

Sports Betting Explained
What is fading a team in sports betting? It simply means betting against them in any game they are playing. It’s not always going to mean wagering against a team that’s lousy. For example, the Jacksonville Jaguars were just 3-13 last NFL season but they lost a lot of close games and managed to go 8-8 ATS. Here are some examples of when to fade this coming season. Also, be sure to check out for more NFL betting odds and picks for this season.

NFL Betting Tips on How to Handicap Fading Teams
Road Teams On Short Week
A few years ago, the NFL – in its attempt to make even more money – decided to stage a Thursday night game every week of the regular season except Week 17. The only reason it’s not the final week of the season is that the league doesn’t want two teams on short rest having to play an important game that could determine a playoff spot or seeding, etc. It’s statistically proven that the road teams in these quick-turnaround games are at a significant disadvantage. They basically only get one full day of practice because of resting up after the previous Sunday on Monday and then traveling to the new city on Wednesday. The home team essentially gets one full day of practice extra – and home field is worth 3 points or so regardless. Since Thursday night football became a weekly season-long deal in 2012, excluding the opening games not subject to a short week, the home team has won about 56 percent of the time.
