This will be a sad weekend for the gamblers out there who like to bet on underdogs because the lines for Week 9 of this year’s NFL season are looking pretty tight. However, as long as there are bottom-feeders in the league there will always be a few decent numbers to hop on, but nothing like what we’ve seen in previous weeks thus far. The good news is that the 4 games with the largest spreads have Dogs that could easily jump up and bite the favorite in the behind…if they get a few breaks.
First we have the team that will probably be in every one of these gambling guides for the rest of the regular season: the Buffalo Bills. They have constantly been given tons of points by oddsmakers across the country and this week is no different. They’re at home to Chicago and getting a whopping 10 points for their troubles. The Bears have certainly improved this year but getting 10 on the road in front of an always-raucous home crowd in Buffalo? Take a look at the Bills +10 to keep the game close.
Next we have an interesting line on Kansas City who are going into Cleveland to take on the “new and improved” Browns. The current number is K.C. -9, but Cleveland just fired their coach and might be hitting the gridiron on Sunday out to prove a thing or two. The Chiefs should easily win the contest but you never know what’s going to happen in the National Football League – the Browns covering 9 points wouldn’t even be in the “Top 10 Craziest Things We’ve Seen This Year” so bet accordingly. And if you want to bet on the favorite, make sure you do it at the Intertops Sportsbook since they have a current line of -8.5 for K.C., gifting you an extra half point, (earlier in the week you could have actually got them at -8.)
The last two games with larger spreads should be a lot closer than the two mentioned above. First there’s the always-dangerous Tampa Bay Buccaneers in a division showdown with the Panthers in Carolina and many gamblers will remember the “Fitzmagic” that beat the Saints and Eagles in the first two weeks of this season, destroying numerous Survivor Pools in the process. The BetOnline Sportsbook has the Bucs as 6½ point Dogs but you can bet at MyBookie and get the line at 7, so if you think that Tampa Bay is going to pull another rabbit out of their hat this Sunday, go get your action there.
Sadly, you won’t be able to get an extra half point on the Monday Nighter as the Cowboys host the Titans in Amare Cooper’s debut, since every single online sportsbook in America currently has the line at -6.5 for Dallas. This game could be a lot closer than many people think and a Tennessee outright win wouldn’t be too shocking at all. Of course, we don’t know which Marcus Mariota is going to show up.
Here are all of the current numbers for NFL gambling at the BetOnline Casino who offer lines on everything from American football to Japanese basketball and anything in between.
