Toledo Rockets vs. Central Michigan Chippewas Game Odds


College Football LinesFriday, November 18

The Toledo Rockets and the Central Michigan Chippewas will meet on Friday when they battle at Kelly/Shorts Stadium.

The high-fl ying Rockets have their sights set on a second-straight eightwin bowl season and despite a 0-3 ATS weekday log this season, we’re not about to jump in front of team that has lit up the scoreboard for 126 points in its last two games – especially knowing that teams off back-toback 60-point scoring efforts are a confi dent 25-4 SU and 18-10 ATS.

And while series history (5-2 ATS last seven, 4-1 ATS last fi ve at home) points to the Chippewas, most of that damage was done with QB Dan LeFevour under center. With LeFevour two years removed from Mt.

Pleasant, the Chips are headed toward their second consecutive three-win season and this twelfth (and fi nal) straight game without rest should also hand them their seventh straight ATS loss (1-9 ATS to date).

NFL Betting: Packers Lead Top NFC Contenders This Weekend


NFL Betting PicksUnlike in the AFC where it seems as though every week there is a shuffling for the order of the top contenders in the conference, the NFC has been dominated by a select group of teams. At the top of the list is the defending Super Bowl champions Green Bay Packers, who along with the San Francisco 49ers and New York Giants have established themselves as the sports betting teams to beat in the NFC.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Green Bay Packers (-14)

Sunday, 1:00 PM ET

The Packers are at the top of the NFC pyramid, and actually appear to be distancing themselves more and more with every passing week. While the talk about a potential perfect season may be somewhat premature, there is no denying that the way in which Green Bay has dominated this season is something special. The Packers will look to continue their run at home this weekend against the slumping Buccaneers, which find themselves in a desperate situation after losing three straight. Tampa Bay will have a tough time ending their slide this week however, especially with injuries hurting their defensive line. The Buccaneers have allowed at least 24 points in each of their past three losses, and that pay head number could go way up this Sunday.

NFL Betting Pick: Green Bay Packers - 14

Arizona Cardinals @ San Francisco 49ers (-9.5)

Sunday 4:05 PM ET

While Green Bay remains undefeated, the 49ers’ only loss of the season has helped spawn their current seven-game winning streak, which has them second to only the Packers in the NFC standings. San Francisco has played every game like it is the Super Bowl, and if they continue to perform at this level they very well could have a chance. The 49ers’ defense ranks first in the NFL against the run, which means that the Cardinals will be in tough as quarterback John Skelton is forced to deal with the betonline bulk of the offensive responsibility.

NFL Betting Pick: San Francisco 49ers – 9.5

Philadelphia Eagles @ New York Giants (-4.5)

Sunday, 8:30 PM ET

The Eagles had several chances to put the Cardinals away last weekend and couldn’t do it, even with both Jeremy Maclin and DeSean Jackson unavailable for the second half. But Jackson is no longer suspended and Maclin should be available, which automatically makes Philadelphia’s offense a legitimate threat as long as Michael Vick can take a hit even with his broken ribs. If Vick cannot play and Vince Young is forced in to a starter role than the Eagles could be in trouble, but if he does play then Philadelphia will have a chance. The Giants had done a good job of not turning the ball over until Eli Manning made a couple of mistakes in last weekend’s NFL loss to the 49ers.

NFL Betting Picks : Philadelphia Eagles + 4.5

Can The Bengals And Ravens Take Advantage Of The Steelers Bye In Week 11?


Gambling AdvisorEntering week 11 of the NFL regular season, the AFC North is once again showing us why it is the best division in professional sports. Despite three of four teams losing this past weekend, week 11 next Sunday can prove to be an integral point in the sports betting season. With Pittsburgh defeating Cincinnati and Baltimore dropping the ball against the lackluster Seattle Seahawks, week 11 showdown featuring the Bengals and Ravens will be the biggest game of the weekend. Here is a preview of week 11’s AFC North action.

After hanging on to end the Cincinnati Bengals five game win streak, the Pittsburgh Steelers head into week 11, the team’s bye week at an inconvenient time. The last thing the Steelers wanted right now is a bye, as their small lead on the AFC North division can vanquish regardless of who wins the aforementioned Bengals and Ravens game, and the Steelers can’t do anything about it.

Entering the price per head 2011 NFL season, nobody and we mean nobody could have anticipated, that the AFC North, would be a three headed race to the final game of the season. In fact, most bookies had Pittsburgh regressing, Baltimore finally showing up, and Cincinnati and Cleveland dueling it out for the worst record in the league. Instead, only the Browns have done their part for bookie software predictions, as Cincinnati, Baltimore and Pittsburgh are entrenched in a heated battle for the divisional crown. What’s more, the way these three teams have played, all three have the possibility of getting into the playoffs at the end of the season.

Looking ahead to next weekend’s game featuring the Cincinnati Bengals taking on the Baltimore Ravens, fans and experts alike will be curious to see which Baltimore team shows up. The Ravens have had a Jekyll and Hyde mentality this season, as they play outstanding football against contenders, but then forget how to play when they face pretenders and bottom feeders. Since Cincinnati has overachieved by all accounts this year, it is unclear if they are a contender or a pretender. This in turn, has us and many colleagues wondering, which Ravens team will show up next Sunday.

Furthermore, Cincinnati and Baltimore are each a half game behind the Steelers for the divisional lead. Meaning to say, with the Steelers off next weekend, the winner of Baltimore and Cincinnati, will be tied atop the division with Pittsburgh. If Baltimore wins, it is believed that fans and media alike will take a step back from rooting for their demise. Conversely, if Cincinnati can beat the Ravens, they will add more members to the “Who Dey?” bandwagon.

For Cincinnati to win they need two things to happen, firstly, they need the defense to play an entire 60 minutes, instead of settle into the game by the second quarter. Secondly, they will need AJ Green back, as the game changing rookie wide receiver left this weekend’s game with an apparent knee injury. If Green comes back, the Bengals should be in good shape for the game.
