NFL Football Sports Betting – Saturday and Sunday Football Bets - Week 16

Well, I won the Thursday night game and now stand at 39-28 so far this football season... and I have a bet for the Saturday night game, as well as a few of Sunday's games.

Baltimore Ravens +4½ (-115) over Dallas Cowboys (line from BoDog)

The Ravens are the better team. The line favors the Cowboys because they are home and everyone loves to bet them. I'll put my money on the better team plus the points.

Buffalo Bills +7 (-115) over Denver Broncos (BoDog)

Another game where the wrong team is favored. The Bills have sucked as of late, but they have Trent Edwards coming back this week. He should be able to re-energize the Bills offense against the Broncos terrible D. I also don't see Champ Bailey playing this week. The Broncos season is over, and they won't risk rushing him back if he's not ready. With limited practise yesterday, I don't think he's ready.

St. Louis Rams +5½ (-110) over San Francisco 49ers (OddsMaker)

The Rams make a live home dog this week. Frank Gore is San Fran's only real viable offensive weapon. He's questionable and probably won't play. San Fran won't risk him with nothing to play for. Steven Jackson is back for the Rams, and he's finally playing like the stud that he is. He shouldn't have a problem running against the 49ers D. Believe it or not, but the Rams still want to win. Interm coach, Jim Haslett is trying to avoid their longest losing streak in 17 years and not look like a complete schmuck after taking over the head coaching job.

Pittsburgh Steelers -2 (-115) over Tennessee Titans (BoDog)

The Steelers are rolling here while the Titans are falling backwards. The Steelers were able to move the ball against the Ravens, and they should be able to do it again in Tennesse. On the other side of the ball, the Titans could score against Houston's so-so defense. They will have real problems against the Pittsburgh D.

That's all for now. I might be back with a few more bets tomorrow before game time.

Good Luck

NFL Football Sports Betting – Thursday Night Football Bet

Thursday night football betting! I love this time of year.

Indianapolis Colts -6.5 (EVEN) over Jacksonville Jaguars

The Colts are playing for a playoff spot. The Jags are playing for nothing. The Jags offense looked terrible last week vs Green Bay's weak defense. It looks like they have given up on the year, and now they have a short week vs a very motivated Indy. The Colts have been on cruise control for the last few weeks beating up on some of the NFL's worst teams. As long as they wake up tonight, they should be able to dominate. I expect them to do just that.

Good Luck tonight.

NFL Football Sports Betting - Week 15 Football Bets - Final Card

I feel like hell... Adding a few plays:

New England Patriots -7 (-110) over Oakland Raiders

Oakland can't keep up with some of the best of the AFC East. The Pats will dominate this game with short passes and the run game.

Houston Texans +3.5 (-110) over Tennessee Titans

This one is ugly, but the Texans are a division rival homedog with a 3 game winning streak. It's all or nothing for them this week, while the Titans come lock up home field advantage anytime over the next 3 weeks.

I'm already on:
Miami Dolphins -6.5 (-110) over San Francisco 49ers
New York Giants +3 (-110) over Dallas Cowboys
St. Louis Rams +2½ (-110) over Seattle Seahawks

NFL picks record YTD: 36-25

Good Luck
