NFL Betting Previews – 2017 Week 8

Gambling911.com has some quick NFL betting previews for Sunday’s games.  LIVE IN-PLAY WAGERING is available for all NFL games.

Vikings-Browns (London) Minnesota -7.5 and -525

Books are desperately trying to get action on Cleveland as this one has jumped from Minnesota -7.5 all the way to -10.  The Vikings were the early most wagered on side in the NFL but also on the money line they were taking quite a hit at many books. 84% of those betting this game were still backing Minnesota on the spread but, on the money line, they were seeing better than 95% at some books despite the steep -525 price tag.

Texans vs. Seahawks Seahawks -6

Seattle was seeing 60% of the betting action here.  This game had some decent volume coming its way.  Houston will try to climb above the .500 mark in hopes of trying to compete in the AFC South.  The line has drifted upwards from -5 to -6.5 by Saturday morning, though many books were still holding at -6.  The line should only be -4.5 for this one but beware of the controversies and all the distractions surrounding the Texans owner making disparaging comments about his players.

Raiders-Bills Buffalo -2.5

60% of the spread action was going the Bills way heading into the weekend.  Action was starting to even out a bit.  Oakland beat Buffalo the last time they met in 2016 and before that in 2014.  Both games were played at home with the last victory by 14 points, the other one by just two.

Falcons-Jets Atlanta -6

Both teams have stumbled a bit in recent weeks though a Jets victory here could put a smile on many future bet holders who have this team winning OVER 3.5 regular season games in 2017.  Despite being a pleasant surprise thus far, New York still ranks among the bottom five teams in the NFL Betting Ratings.  Nevertheless, the line should only be Atlanta -4.5 or -5 here.  The Falcons are 4-11 Against The Spread in their last 15 games following a Straight Up loss. The Jets are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games.

Cowboys-Redskins Dallas -2

68% of the action was going Dallas’ way, and with good reason.  Washington’s offensive line has become depleted following the game Monday night against division leading Philadelphia.  Washington saw three offensive linemen injured against the Eagles. Left tackle Trent Williams aggravated his right knee, right tackle Morgan Moses sprained both ankles and right guard Brandon Scherff suffered a knee sprain. Center Spencer Long (knee) is also hurting.

With 13 players limited or worse, the Redskins didn't even practice Wednesday.  The away team in this series has gone 6-1 while Dallas has won four of the last five.  It would probably be wise to bet the Cowboys spread here under these circumstances.    

Bears-Saints New Orleans -9.5

The Saints are fast becoming an NFL favorite once more following a series of big wins that have pushed New Orleans into the NFC South lead, but beware, Chicago is starting to get their act together as well and in a division where the favorites, Green Bay, have lost their star quarterback for what will likely be the remainder of this season.  The Bears are on the verge of reaching .500 at the halfway mark of this NFL season.  New Orleans is rated 4th in the NFL Betting Power Ratings. Though they haven’t faced Chicago since 2014, New Orleans won the last three meetings by an average of 13.7 points dating back to 2011.  We would be remiss in pointing out that the Bears are 7-1 Against The Spread vs. a team with a winning record.  The current line appears to be right on the money.  

Panthers-Bucs Tampa Bay -1.5

ESPN.com says that Sunday’s game at Raymond James Stadium has developed into the Desperation Bowl with each team urgently searching for positive momentum in the NFC South Division race.  Tampa Bay, in particular, is on a three-game losing streak.  But this division remains up for grabs as Atlanta has also stumbled and New Orleans’ slow start means they are just barely over the .500 mark at this point in the season.  Tampa Bay has won the last two in this season though Carolina dominated previously.
