Cleveland Browns vs. San Francisco 49ers Betting Odds on Week 8


NFL Betting NewsThe Cleveland Browns and the San Francisco 49ers will have a meeting on Sunday at Candlestick Park. Join Now to Bet on this Game!

Here’s the epitome of winning ugly: the 3-3 Browns have topped 17 points on only one occasion this season.

The points will probably be hard to come by for Colt McCoy and company, once again, this week as the rested Niners have allowed just 53 points in their last four games.

And speaking of rest, we’ll get to see if this season’s aforementioned Bye Week blues clashes with a money-making situation from past years as our sports betting news database reminds us that teams on a 4-0 SU and ATS run playing with a week of rest are 13-3 ATS as regular-season favorites.

With that being said, we’re still not keen on laying significant points with a 5-1 squad that is allowing 33 YPG more than it gains.

Frisco may not fall to 0-6 SU in Game Seven but we do think the Browns will improve to 8-1 ATS as dogs of 7 or more points when .500 or greater and 5-1 SU and ATS in Game Seven of the betting season.

NFL Week 8 Preview: Minnesota Vikings vs. Carolina Panthers (-3)


Football PicksSports Betting Overview

The Carolina Panthers’ week seven win over the Washington Redskins was a combination of two forces. The first is the downward spiral that the Redskins find itself on. Even though Rex Grossman took the Chicago Bears to a Super Bowl, he has never been considered a stable NFL starter. Quarterback John Beck has always been hyped as having a lot of skills and potential, but he is still winless as a starter in the NFL. A team without a proven winner at starting quarterback is not going to win a lot of football games.

The other cost per head factor working against the Redskins was the fact that the Carolina Panthers just keep getting better each and every week. The season started in a flash as rookie quarterback Cam Newton looked like he was going to break every single season NFL passing record in the books. But, early in the season, the Carolina defense was not pulling its weight. Over the past seven weeks, the Panthers’ defense has become very good at taking the ball away and putting pressure on the opposing quarterback. People forget that the Carolina defense, just like its quarterback, is very young. The entire Panthers team is learning how to win at a frightening pace.

Minnesota Vikings

Rookie quarterback Christian Ponder looked very impressive in his NFL debut in week seven against the defending World Champion Green Bay Packers. Ponder looked confident and seemed like he was ready to be an NFL quarterback. The price per head services noticed a lot of rookie mistakes Ponder made in his decision making, but all of his issues can be corrected with coaching and experience. Minnesota has definitely found its starting quarterback and the Minnesota defense also played extremely well in the second half of the game against Green Bay. But the Vikings’ defense got off to another slow start and that may have been what cost Minnesota the game.

Carolina Panthers

Cam Newton is proving to be one of the best NFL betting picks in recent draft history. After seven games, Newton has 2,103 passing yards. But Newton only has eight touchdown passes and has thrown nine interceptions, which shows that his red zone decision making is still suspect. The Panthers just keep getting better and better each week and Newton is just one part of a team that is developing into what could be a powerhouse NFL team in just a few years.

The Bottom Line

The intertops key to this game is the Minnesota defense. Cam Newton has thrown the ball all over the field, but he is not scoring points. Next season, Newton should have gained the necessary experience to be a scoring machine. But the Vikings’ offense is much-improved under Ponder, and the Minnesota defense should be able to force Newton to make critical mistakes. This will be a fun game to watch and it will be interesting to see if Ponder is going to improve week to week or if he is going to gather experience this year and become a top NFL quarterback next season.

Pick: Minnesota Vikings

NFL Betting: Chargers Look to Hold Off Surging Chiefs


Picks NFLThis is no BetOnline scam; after an awful start to the season, Kansas City has stormed back to pull within a game of San Diego in the AFC West, and the two will square off at Arrowhead Stadium in a huge Monday night contest.

Chargers Chiefs Odds – Monday, October 31st, 8:30 PM ET

The Chargers (4-2) let one slip away in a 27-21 loss on the road to the New York Jets, as they were up 21-10 at the half, but the Jets’ offense came alive and San Diego couldn’t slow them down. Philip Rivers was 16-of-32 for 179 yards and a touchdown, but he also threw a couple of picks NFL fans were left scratching their heads afterwards. The defense also gave the Jets four first downs due to penalties, and committing 13 penalties is an easy way to watch your lead down the drain. The Chargers also allowed the Jets to rush for 162 yards, and people are starting to ask the same questions that many have put forth for years; are the Chargers good or are they playing in a subpar division? They’ve beaten Minnesota, Kansas City, Miami and Denver, with losses against the Jets and New England, so that should be a hint.

The Chiefs (3-3) picked off Kyle Boller and Carson Palmer three times each in a 28-0 shutout in Oakland, running back two picks for scores in a game that got testy. Price per head players may have given the Chiefs an edge coming into this game because of the Raiders’ quarterback issues, but no one saw this coming, not even the most diehard Chiefs fan. Matt Cassel was poor, going 15-of-30 for 161 yards and a couple of picks, but he didn’t even have to be good on this day as the Chiefs ran for 139 yards and the defense did the rest.

Pay head odds have the Chargers as a 3.5-point favorite on the road in Kansas City, where they are 3-2 SU and 2-3 ATS in their last five trips to Arrowhead, with two games going over the posted total, along with a push. These two met on Monday Night Football last season, with the Chiefs coming away with a 21-14 win in the first week of the season, and they ended up going on to win the West. Injuries destroyed them in the first few games this season, but the Chiefs have been fortunate to play the likes of Minnesota, Indianapolis and the Raiders. San Diego won Week 3’s 20-17 clash at home, but the Chiefs were starting to come around in that game and only a late pick by Cassel stopped them. Kansas City isn’t as bad as they looked, and San Diego isn’t as good as you think. That leads to a Kansas City sports betting win.
