Bettors who believe the New Orleans Saints can pick up their first win of the season on Sunday can get back +280 odds for their wager on the money line.

It was a shootout last year when the Saints and Packers met in week one of the season on a Thursday night. Green Bay prevailed 42-34 and covered as a -4 ½ point favorite with the total flying over 47 ½ points. Green Bay and New Orleans in their past six head to head meetings have played to an over the total in each game.

In the 2012 season the Saints offense is generating nearly 28 points per game along with 377 yards of offense. The problem with New Orleans has been the play of their defense. They rank 32nd and last in the NFL in total defense as they surrender 477 yards of offense to their opponents. Teams average 34 points a game on the New Orleans defense ranking them 31st and second to last in the league. Looking at the Saints schedule they haven’t faced any juggernauts on the year with losses to the Redskins, Panthers and last week the team blew a 24-6 third quarter lead in a 27-24 overtime defeat to the Chiefs. Green Bay is trying to shake off the disappointment of their 14-12 road defeat on Monday Night Football on a controversial touchdown pass by Seattle as time expired. Biggest issue for Green Bay was their pass protection as they allowed Aaron Rodgers to be sacked eight times in the loss. Green Bay should have never been in this situation at the end of the game as their offense was limited to just 268 yards by the Seahawks defense.

Last year in the Eagles and Giants two game divisional series, the home team came away with the victory with each game playing under the total. Prior to the 2011 season the Eagles have dominated the Giants with six straight wins dating back to the 2008 season. After an opening week 24-17 home defeat to the Dallas Cowboys the Giants have strung together two straight wins. They were very sloppy in a 41-34 home win against Tampa Bay in week two. On a short week on a Thursday Night we saw the Giants best performance of the season as they pound Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers by the score of 36-7 as a +2 ½ point road underdog. Historically the New York Giants have been an outstanding road team in an underdog role. The Eagles are 2-1 on the year and can easily be 0-3. They earn one point wind against Cleveland and Baltimore to begin the season in games that were filled with Eagles turnover but their defense kept them in striking distance for come from behind wins late. Last week they travel to Arizona and get pounded 27-6 as a field goal road favorite. The Eagles committed three turnovers in the loss and forced none away from Arizona. Trailing 17-0 late in the second quarter with the Eagles near the Cardinals end zone Arizona forces a Michael Vick fumble and returns it for a 93 yard touchdown.

The current odds at Oddsmaker has the BYU Cougars favored by -27 ½ points with the over under lined at 51 points.

BYU and Hawaii went head to head in the 2011 season and it was the Cougars defeating the Warriors 41-20 as a -8 point favorite on the road to deny the Hawaii Warriors a bowl berth. The Warriors were headed to the Hawaii bowl with a win as they held a 6-6 record heading into their game with BYU on December 3rd of 2011. The Hawaii Warriors are off to a poor start under first year head coach Norm Chow. The team is 1-2 on the season with the only win coming against FCS school Lamar two weeks ago. In week one the Warriors allowed 49 points to USC in a loss. They hosted the Nevada Wolfpack in Mountain West conference play and were routed 69-24 as a +7 point underdog. Their defense struggled with the pistol offense from Nevada as they allow 355 yards rushing and over 6 yards a carry in their loss. First year starting quarterback Sean Schroeder passed for 234 yards with two touchdowns and two picks last week. The once high octane offense for Hawaii has struggled to just 337 yards per game on the season ranking 104th in the nation. After two wins to start the season the BYU Cougars have lost two straight. A mistake filled 24-21 road loss at Utah in week three was hard to swallow as BYU outgained the Utes by nearly 70 yards. Last week they go to Boise St on a Thursday night and were beaten 7-6 as a +6 point underdog. There has been some talk in the BYU camp that they will bench starting quarterback Riley Nelson. He has thrown for less than 50% with four interceptions in his past two games.

Cleveland Browns versus Baltimore Ravens NFL Pro Football Betting Preview

Tuesday, September 25th, 2012

Week four of the NFL regular season is a key as we find many divisional games scheduled. On Thursday Night Football it’s an AFC North divisional battle as the desperate Cleveland Browns will be in search of their first win as they face the Baltimore Ravens. The Browns and Ravens will begin Thursday Night Football at 8:20PM Eastern Time with NFL Network providing the live coverage on September 27th.

Bet the Browns and Ravens NFL pro football at Oddsmaker sportsbook, where bettors can now claim their Free 100% Bonus up to $1000. Sign up today and get into the excitement of watching and wagering on NFL Thursday Night Football all season long.

The current NFL odds posted at Oddsmaker has the Baltimore Ravens favored by -13 points with the total at 44 points. Those who wager on the Baltimore Ravens on the money line will have to lay -800 odds. Bettors who believe the Cleveland Browns can pull off the road upset win on Thursday Night Football can get back +575 odds for their wager on the money line.

Cleveland has had difficult times generating offense on the road at Baltimore. In their past four trips to the Ravens the Browns have scored a total of 44 points so that equates to just 11 points per game. With an old defense the Ravens may be wise to shift back to their ground and pound style we usually see in November and December with this team. Baltimore must control the football and keep their offense on the field and limit the amount of snaps their old defense will have to play in such a short week after coming off an emotional hard hitting game on Sunday night football against the Patriots. Rookie Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden is completing 56.5% of his passes with three touchdowns and three picks. The best defense he faced was Philadelphia in week one. Weeden hit on only 34.3% of his throws with 118 yards in the loss to Philadelphia 17-16 as a +9 point underdog. The only reason Cleveland covered the betting line in week one against Philadelphia was the fact the Eagles turned the football over five times.

Baltimore has owned Cleveland as they have won eight straight and covered the point spread in six of those games. During their past six meetings the under has cashed in six straight. No surprise as the Browns offense has been anemic in recent seasons and has troubled generating offense against Baltimore.

Green Bay Packers versus Seattle Seahawks NFL Pro Football Betting Preview

The Green Bay Packers play on Monday Night Football even at 1-1 on this 2012 season. They opened up at home against the San Francisco 49ers and their defense struggled in a 30-22 defeat to the 49ers as a favorite of -6 points. They were outgained by San Francisco and had trouble defending the power run game of the 49ers as they surrender 186 rushing yards in defeat. They bounced back in a short week as they defeat the Chicago Bears 23-10 on Thursday Night Football in a game played way back on September 13th. The Packers defense played much better as they outgain their divisional rivals by 153 yards. Green Bay ranks 27th in the league in rush defense and could be vulnerable here. The Seattle Seahawks are also level on the year at 1-1 on the year. In week one they drop a heartbreaker to Arizona 20-16 as a -1 point favorite on the road. Seattle should have won this game but a dropped game winning touchdown by Braylon Edwards cost the Seahawks a win. In week two they crush the Dallas Cowboys as Seattle earns the 27-7 home win as a +3 point underdog. The Seattle power run game led them in the win as they rush for 182 yards in the win. Seattle is sixth in the NFL in rushing as the team averages 148 yards per game.

In the AFC Championship game last season it was New England prevailing 23-20 as a -7 point home favorite. Baltimore had opportunities late to win this game with a dropped touchdown pass and a chip shot field goal missed. The Patriots are 1-1 on the season. In week one they go on the road and blow out Tennessee 34-13. Last week they host an improved Arizona Cardinals team and drop a 20-18 decision as a -13 point home favorite. New England found the end zone just once in the game and kicker Stephen Gostkowski misses a short field goal late in defeat. The Ravens also are 1-1 on this young season. They crush Cincinnati in week one by the score of 44-13 as a touchdown favorite. Last week they faced a stout test in Philadelphia and lose 24-23 as their defense allows a late touchdown by Michael Vick with less than two minutes remaining. It was a disappointing loss by Baltimore as they had a +2 turnover margin in the game in the loss. The Ravens defense was torched by the Eagles offense as Baltimore allows 129 yards rushing and 357 yards passing in the game. The Patriots have looked much improved on the defensive side of the football as the team is allowing just 16 points a game along with 264 yards per game. Teams only rush for 62 yards a game against this Patriots defense.

Money line odds return on the Boise St Broncos will return -255 odds for a wager. Bettors who believe that the road underdog BYU Cougars can pull off the upset win on Thursday Night can get back +215 odds for their wager on the money line.

These teams last met back in the 2003 and 2004 season as Boise St was able to sweep the home and home series. The road team covered the point spread in each game. This is a tough spot for the BYU Cougars as they enter with a record of 2-1 on the season. They faced their longtime in-state rival the Utah Utes in a late night game on Saturday night and came away with a 24-21 road defeat in a game that finished well past 11PM on Saturday night Mountain Time. BYU does not take part in football activities on a Sunday so prep time is very minimal as they play a Boise St Broncos team that is improving from week to week. Another concern on the BYU side is how starting quarterback Riley Nelson handled the adversity playing a quality opponent on the road last week. He was not accurate completing less than half of his passes and looked rattled on the field. Boise St has a tremendous home field advantage and responded with a 39-12 home win last week against Miami Ohio Redhawks from the MAC conference following a week one defeat at Michigan St 17-13. We saw better play from first year starting quarterback Joe Southwick who hit on 24 of 31 throws for 304 yards with two touchdowns and one pick in the win.
