  • BookMaker.eu A matchup of winless teams is set for Thursday Night on NFL Network, as the Denver Broncos visit the New York Jets. It has been a rough start for both teams, but the good news is that one of these teams should get their first win of the season on Thursday. The Broncos are without starting quarterback Drew Lock so it will be either Jeff Driskel or Brett Rypien under center on T... 

  • BookMaker.eu The AFC title game matchup NFL bettors thought would take place last season will instead go down in Week 3 NFL betting action when Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs invade M&T Bank Stadium for a heavyweight bout with Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens. The defending champs suffered from a case of the lookahead blues on the road last week struggling to dispose of the division rival Chargers in overtime, while the Ravens cruised to a second straight win and cover against the Texan... 

  • BookMaker.eu Another battle of legendary veteran quarterbacks takes place in Week 3 when Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers take on Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints on Sunday Night Football. After two very un-Brees-like performances the questions regarding his age sprouted again. There are no concerns about Rodgers and the undefeated Packers, who lead the NFL in yards and points after two weeks. Both teams could be without their top receiver as the injury bug has claimed Michael Thomas and Davante ... 

  • BookMaker.eu If you want to win money betting NFL games then you need to be willing to take teams no one else wants to bet. We refer to these teams as ugly dogs and you really have to hold your nose sometimes when you bet on them, but history has shown that going against the public works. We went 2-4 with the picks in Week 2 and that means a slow start to the season with a record of 4-6. We’ll look to turn things around in Week 3. Let’s take a look at the Week 3 Ugly Dog picks.... 

  • BookMaker.eu The Miami Dolphins will be looking for their first win of the season as they visit the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday Night on NFL Network. The Dolphins didn’t play that well in a Week 1 loss to the Patriots, but Miami had their chances in Week 2 against Buffalo but fell short. On the other side, the Jaguars were thought before the season to be the worst team in the ... 

  • BookMaker.eu Depending on how you look at it the Week 2 Sunday Night Football matchup between the New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks is a rematch of the 2015 Super Bowl or a 2016 NFC Divisional Round playoff game. Another way to look at it is a pair of teams coming off impressive season-opening wins. Both teams covered the closing line as favorites with Russell Wilson particularly sharp for Seattle. Cam Newton looked like the MVP version in the Pats win over Miami, starting the post-Brady era just lik... 

  • BookMaker.eu The NFL is about to debut in Sin City; my how times have changed! Is there a better way to close Week 2 NFL betting out than with a showdown in the desert between the New Orleans Saints and Las Vegas Raiders? I didn’t think so! Both of last week’s Monday Night matchups were snooze fests save for Stephen Gostkowski’s roller coaster of a night, but this matchup should deliver with some of the most exciting players in the league lining up for both teams. Each squad came out victorious last week, bu... 

  • BookMaker.eu If you want to win money betting NFL games then you need to be willing to take teams no one else wants to bet. I refer to these teams as ugly dogs and you really have to hold your nose sometimes when you bet on them, but history has shown that going against the public works. I went 2-2 with the four picks in Week 1, but that is no reason to complain, as we still really don’t know which teams are going to be really bad yet. Let’s take a look at the Week 2 Ugly Dog picks.... 

  • BookMaker.eu Both the Cincinnati Bengals and Cleveland Browns went off the board at online sportsbooks as underdogs last week. Neither was able to get into the win column though the Bengals either pushed or cashed a ticket dependent upon where you got into the market had you backed Joe Borrow in his NFL debut. The Browns on the other hand were huge disappointments once again after getting rolled up and smoked by the division rival Baltimore Ravens. Linemakers have Kevin Stefanski’s troops installed 6-point f... 

  • BookMaker.eu The first half of Monday Night Football’s double dip is one of the more intriguing matchups of the Week 1 NFL betting slate. Things just didn’t feel right with Ben Roethlisberger out of commission last season. Good news for Pittsburgh Steelers fans is that No. 7 will be back under center to help put a spark back into an offense that could best be described as abysmal a season ago. A new chapter in New York Giants lore will begin with new head coach Joe Judge and his staff introducing themselves to the betting public. He’s got a very young and talented offense to work with, but will Daniel Jones be up to the task of taking full advantage of it? The betting markets aren’t buying into any type of improvement. At least in Week 1 with the Steelers installed lofty 5.5-point road favorites and the total lined at 46. This will be the franchise’s first showdown since 2016 when Pittsburgh scored the 24-14 home win as near touchdown favorites. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu If you want to win money betting NFL games then you need to be willing to take teams no one else wants to bet. I refer to these teams as ugly dogs and you really have to hold your nose sometimes when you bet on them, but history has shown that going against the public works. We are coming off a successful 2019 season, as the ugly dogs went 35-25-2. Anytime you can get near a winning percentage of 60% it is definitely a success. Week 1 is always tricky and that could be the case again this season... 

  • BookMaker.eu The first installment of Sunday Night Football graces NFL bettors with a matchup of current and former NFC powerhouses in the third meeting between the Dallas Cowboys and Los Angeles Rams over the last two years. Sean McVay got the best of “America’s Team” in the playoffs back in 2019, but Big D avenged that defeat in a big way by logging the emphatic 44-21 outright win and cover as 1-point home dogs in last year’s rematch. Scoreboard operators could get a major workout this evening in the showd... 

  • BookMaker.eu Up 24-0 with just over 10 minutes remaining in the second quarter of their division round playoff matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs, the Houston Texans looked to be well on their way towards punching a ticket to the AFC title game; then all hell broke loose! The Chiefs went on to score four unanswered touchdowns to take a four-point lead into halftime, and then outscored the Texans by 16 in the second half to score the improbable 51-31 comeback win and cover as decided 10-point favorites. T... 

  • BookMaker.eu The big story in the NFL for the last six months was Tom Brady’s decision to leave New England and come to Tampa Bay. The GOAT won six Super Bowls with the Patriots, but two decades in frozen Foxboro was enough for the 43-year-old quarterback. The Buccaneers became an instant Super Bowl contender after signing Brady, and he has an embarrassment of riches to work with in Bruce Arians’ offense. That h... 

  • BookMaker.eu After being without sports for months, sports bettors have been treated to an insane amount of betting options since the calendar turned to late July with the NBA, NHL and MLB all returning to play out their respective seasons. It’s only going to get better come September 10 when the Houston Texans and Kansas City Chiefs kick-off the 2020-21 NFL betting season. So far, the league has done a fantastic job preventing the coronavirus from taking a stranglehold of its players, coaches and anyone else involved in the day-to-day operations. Here’s to hoping that continues over the next few weeks so sports fans and bettors have something to take their minds off the “New Normal” that’s changed everything as we once knew it. Without further ado, here’s a look at the offerings served up at online sportsbooks for Week 1. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu With just two playoff appearances in the last 12 seasons and finishing third or worse in the NFC East in each of the last four, nobody expects the Washington Redskins to compete for the NFC East title in the first go round of the Ron Rivera era. Three straight third place finishes and a wretched start to the 2020-21 season saw Jay Gruden get shown the door after losing the locker room in the middle of the season. The franchise has failed to surpass its season win total odds in each of the last t... 

  • BookMaker.eu So exactly just who is this Joe Judge character? That’s something NFL bettors and fans of the New York Giants will discover over the course of the 2020-21 NFL betting season after being hired as the 21st coach of the franchise. It’s been nothing short of a turnstile in the head coaching department dating back to Tom Coughlin’s Big Apple tenure that unceremoniously ended in 2015. Judge inherits an in... 

  • BookMaker.eu The Philadelphia Eagles just gave Carson Wentz $128 million dollars to be their QB1 for the next four seasons. With that the case, what the heck was Howie Roseman smoking by selecting Jalen Hurts with the 53rd overall pick in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft? This blatantly shows how worried the franchise is about the health of their supposed starting quarterback. If so, then why throw all that money at Wentz back in June of last season? It literally makes no sense! The decision let

  • BookMaker.eu The Dallas Cowboys were never able to find consistency last season. Because of it, the franchise went under a complete overhaul this past offseason with the dismissal of Jason Garrett and his entire staff. The move paved the way for Mike McCarthy’s return to the sideline off a year-plus hiatus. The Cowboys roster has brimmed with talent for a number of seasons, but the former coaching staff was never truly able to harness it. That in a nutshell is why Garrett will be calling plays for the New Yo... 

  • BookMaker.eu One by one, the pieces of the Jacksonville Jaguars fantastic defense that took on the moniker of #Sacksonville have been stripped away from the roster. Jalen Ramsey was traded to the Los Angeles Rams last season. Calais Campbell was shipped off to Baltimore this past offseason. The Jags other corner back, A.J. Bouye, was sent to Denver. While Yannick Ngakoue was franchised by the Jaguars, he doesn’t want to be in Jacksonville so there’s a high probability he won’t be donning a Jaguars jersey onc... 

  • BookMaker.eu The Indianapolis Colts were forced to endure one of the nastiest gut punches the league ever witnessed when Andrew Luck shockingly announced his retirement at the tail end of the preseason. The timing couldn’t have been worse. The team was forced to scramble in hopes of finding an immediate answer. While Indy got out to a solid start in winning five of its first seven games and going 4-2-1 ATS in those matchups, things took a major turn for the worse with the team logging just a pair of wins and three pointspread covers over its final nine games. Though the team’s season win total odds opened a half-game lower than they were a season ago, only two teams have shorter odds to win the AFC and linemakers have them installed +120 chalk to secure AFC South bragging rights. GM Chris Ballard did a fine job improving the roster this past offseason, and season win total bettors took notice ultimately forcing those booking the bets to bump the impost up to 9.5. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu Last NFL bettors got a look at the Houston Texans, they went on to blow a 24-0 second-quarter lead and fell to the Kansas City Chiefs by a 51-31 final score; they couldn’t even cover the closing 10-point spread! That comeback win against the Buffalo Bills in overtime the previous week no doubt played a role; that and Patrick Mahomes going HAM. Regardless, it was another successful campaign for the franchise. Though it amounted to another early exit in the second season, the Texans still went on to win the AFC South for the fourth time in the last five seasons. Upper management decided to give all the keys to Bill O’Brien who is now the head coach and GM of the franchise regardless of the fact that he hasn’t led the team passed the Division Round throughout his time in Houston. With a major head-scratching move made this past offseason, linemakers at online sportsbooks expect the Texans to take a step back in 2020-21 with their season win total checking in at 7.5 after closing 8 just a short season ago. Both the Indianapolis Colts and Tennessee Titans also sport shorter returns on the odds to win the division. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu Had Jameis Winston not thrown an interception on seemingly every one of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ opening drives last season, Bruce Arians might’ve led the Bucs to a winning record and possible playoff berth in his return to the sidelines. Be that as it may, Winston threw an alarming 30 picks last season. Because of it, Tampa Bay was saddled with a 7-9 SU record but lost the tiebreaker to the Atlanta Falcons to finish third in the NFC South. In that respect, things are likely to be much different by the bay this season with the GOAT – Tom Brady – inking a two-year deal to run the offense. No. 12 threw a total of eight interceptions last season, and has amassed a grand total of 29 over his last four seasons. With a rich of spoils at his disposal and a likely major improvement in turnover differential, many predict the Buccaneers to be a major player in 2020-21 and beyond; including linemakers at top rated sportsbooks! ... 

  • BookMaker.eu Who would’ve ever thought the wild 48-46 home defeat to the San Francisco 49ers in Week 14 would’ve proved to be the straw that broke the camel’s back? Because of it, the New Orleans Saints missed out on a first round bye even though it sported an identical 13-3 record as the Green Bay Packers. So instead of taking a week off to lick its wounds and prepare itself mentally and physically for a Super Bowl run, it was forced to take on a physical Minnesota Vikings squad instead. And for the second ... 

  • BookMaker.eu There’s way too much talent on the Carolina Panthers roster to believe an improvement from last year’s campaign isn’t in the offing entering the 2020-21 NFL betting season. Ron Rivera proved to be good enough to hold onto his job throughout his nine-year stay in Carolina, but the franchise never truly did much of anything under his watch. Yes, the Panthers did go on to represent the NFC in Super Bowl 50 but more or less got manhandled in a 24-10 defeat to Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos. O...
