NFL Week 4 - Football Sports Betting

2-3 last week, 6-5 so far for the season. Remember it's a marathon, not a sprint. The goal is to win money over the course of the season. There will be some good and some bad weeks along the way.

New York Jets/New Orleans Saints UNDER 45 (-110)

Jets have a great defense. The Saints sat on their lead last week. The public is all over the OVER in this game, but the line has dropped from 48 to 45. The smart (and big) money is on the under.

Detroit Lions +10 (-110) over Chicago Bears

The Lions won a game last week! And the Skins aren't that bad a team. I see the Bears winning this week, but I think it will be closer than 10. Chicago hasn't won a game by more than 10 this year, and struggled last week against the Seahawks who had a lot of injuries. The Bears are also banged up on defense and Kevin Smith will play.

Baltimore Ravens +1½ (-110) over New England Patriots

The Pats only lost this season has come against a good defense. Baltimore is known of their defense. They can and will blitz all day and keep Brady out of the pocket and off balance. Also the Ravens currently have the best offense in the AFC.

Monday Night Football Play! (my first of the season)

Minnesota Vikings -3½ (-110) over Green Bay Packers

At home against his old team, expect Farve to win. The student (Rogers) does not become the mentor (Farve) this game. I don't like the extra 1/2 point over 3, but I'll take it since I still see value in this line.

That's all for now. I'll probably have a few plays tomorrow.

All lines are from BoDog.
09 Season Record: 6-5

Good Luck

NFL Week 3 - Football Sports Betting - Final Card

Cincinnati Bengals +4 (-115) over Pittsburgh Steelers

Cincy has an offense. Pitt has key defensive injuries. Pitt's offense has looked slow this season, and has gone 1-1 in 2 close games. The public loves to back the Super Bowl winner's, but the line has moved against them. Cincy is at home and getting points.

New York Jets -3 (+125) over Tennessee Titans

Everyone loved betting the Jets last week as home dogs, but for some reason the 0-2 Titans are getting love this week. I don't think they should be. The Titans haven't looked good in either of their games this year. They've currently given up the most pass yards in the league, and the Jets defense shouldn't have a tough time shutting them down. This game looks too easy, and hopefully it will be.

Already on:
Buffalo Bills +6 (-105) over New Orleans Saints
St. Louis Rams +7 (-125) over Green Bay Packers
Tampa Bay Buccaneers/New York Giants OVER 44

All lines are from BoDog.
09 Season Record: 4-2

Good Luck.
