(9) LSU Tigers @ (3) Alabama Crimson Tide

Saturday, November 7, 7:30 p.m. ET

Sportsbook favorite: Alabama -9

We know Alabama will remain in the BCS picture for the balance of the season. The big question is whether or not LSU has any business being there too. The Tigers have just one loss on their record but the Crimson Tide are hungry to expose them as pretenders this weekend.

LSU has plenty of weapons on offense. Jordan Jefferson has a solid receiving corps at his disposal and Charles Scott has proven capable of big games. The problem: the Tigers haven’t proven that they can do it against good teams; they managed a measly three points against Florida. It’s hard to imagine them doing much against Alabama’s deep defense, considered the best in the country by some football picks experts.

The Tigers have a solid defense too but don’t pressure the quarterback too well. That means Greg McElroy could have a solid day. He hasn’t been great lately but he may have simply been tiring in his first season as a starter. Fresh off his bye week and playing at home, he’ll be sharp again. He only has to be a caretaker anyway; Alabama’s offense is all about Mark Ingram. He’s having a monster year, averaging 125.5 yards on the ground and totaling 11 touchdowns so far.

With no pressure from their front seven, the Tigers open themselves up to passing completions underneath and give Ingram a chance to run wild. It seems LSU’s number may be up; Alabama remains undefeated and is hungry to leapfrog Texas and regain the No. 2 position in the BCS rankings. Go with the Crimson Tide to cover the nine-point spread.

Online betting pick: Alabama -9

NFL Week 9 Betting Parlay, Part III


NFL Week 9 Betting Parlay, Part IIIThe NFL betting fun never stops. We gave you a fun parlay to try earlier this week; here are three more sports picks that can carry you to the promised land.

Falcons -10 over Redskins

How can we expect the Redskins to beat a 10-point spread when they’ll be hard-pressed to score 10 points at all? With Chris Samuels’ season-ending injury and Clinton Portis’ declining skill, Washington doesn’t run too well anymore. With Jason Campbell’s jitteriness in the pocket and unwillingness to look downfield, Washington can’t pass either. Though the Redskins defend the pass well, the Falcons have enough weapons to do damage just as the Eagles did in Week 7. Atlanta may not light the scoreboard up but should cover.

Packers -9.5 over Buccaneers

This may be your lock of the week. Not only do the Bucs sport the NFL’s worst record at 0-7, they’re likely debuting rookie quarterback Josh Freeman this week. The Packers have one of the league’s best pass defenses so they won’t make life easy for Freeman at all. Better yet for Green Bay, Aaron Rodgers is having a monster season; despite getting sacked more than any quarterback in the league thus far, he leads the NFL in passer rating. With a nice vacation against a terrible team, he could post career-best numbers on Sunday.

Titans +4 over 49ers

Call this one a sportsbook hunch. In theory, the 49ers should pound the lowly Titans, but the landscape has changed dramatically for both teams over the last couple of weeks. The Titans showed last Sunday that they still have some talent; they can run the ball and Vince Young even looked competent behind center. The 49ers are losing confidence quickly and their offensive line play has been highly suspect. Maybe, just maybe the Titans’ “D” shuts down Frank Gore and VY turns in another surprise performance in what is now a pressure-free part of the season for the Titans. Make them your online betting upset pick.

NFL Week 9 Betting Parlay, Part II


NFL Week 9 Betting Parlay, Part II Yes, folks, NFL betting is that huge. Huge enough to require a “Part II” just to get all our picks in. We’ve already endorsed six teams this week; here are three more to consider for your football picks.

Jaguars -6.5 over Chiefs

Picking between these two teams, both of which have horrible defenses, is like choosing the lesser of two evils. The Chiefs and Jags both rank near the bottom of the NFL against the run and the pass and have a combined 14 sacks. How sad is that combined stat: 26 NFL teams have 14 or more sacks this season. With no defense happening, this game should go over the sportsbook total. The Jags have the overall edge thanks to the human bowling ball known as Maurice Jones-Drew. He should absolutely demolish the Chiefs’ front seven as Jacksonville romps in a half-filled stadium.

Panthers +13 over Saints

That’s not a misprint. The Saints should win outright but their online betting prospects to cover the big spread aren’t too great. They’re without their best run stopper, Sedrick Ellis, for the second straight week. Last Monday they couldn’t contain Michael Turner without him; that means DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart should have big days this Sunday. The Panthers turned some heads with a powerhouse road win over Arizona last week and should push the Saints harder than expected this week.

Seahawks -10 over Lions

The Seahawks are an extremely disappointing 2-5 but we shouldn’t count them out quite yet, as their schedule gets a lot easier starting this week. Matt Hasselbeck gets a tasty matchup versus the Lions, who may struggle after making a long road trip and have to battle the deafening Seattle crowd noise. You know how Seattle explodes for a massive 30-point win a couple of random times per season? Week 9 should be one of those times.

NFL Week 9 Betting Parlay


NFL Week 9 Betting Parlay Once the World Series odds wind down this week, the NFL will take over as the No. 1 sport to bet on for the next couple of months. Time to get serious with our NFL picks, starting with this Week 9 parlay.

Cardinals +3 over Bears

Arizona beats the Giants on the road then follows up that great performance with a stinker at home against Carolina. Go figure. After a six-turnover performance versus the Panthers, Kurt Warner should be much better on the road, where the Cards are playing better for whatever reason. The Bears’ secondary can be beaten deep. The Arizona defense should also bounce back against a Chicago O-line that has struggled at times this season. Go with Arizona at your sportsbook.

Giants -4.5 over Chargers

The Giants have stumbled badly of late, mainly due to injuries in their secondary, but they’re still a good team. Against the pretender Chargers, who’ve only beaten Oakland (twice), Kansas City and Miami this season, Eli manning and company should bounce back. The Chargers allow 132.1 rushing yards per game so the Giants should cram Brandon Jacobs and Ahmad Bradshaw down their throats. New York will cover, no problem.

Eagles -3 over Cowboys

Tony Romo has a good track record in November and the Cowboys are certainly playing improved football of late but they haven’t faced a decent pass rush since the Broncos in Week 4. Every once in a while, Romo treats online betting fans to one of his multi-turnover “stinker” performances. One of his worst to date was his debacle against the Eagles in Week 17 last year; what if Philly’s in his head? The Eagles will throw everything they have at him. Dallas will pressure Donovan McNabb too but it’s hard to bet against the Eagles when McNabb and DeSean Jackson have such a great big-play rapport going. Pick Philly.
