The Crimson Tide’s lone blemish on the season came in a 29-24 home loss to the Texas A&M Aggies three weeks ago. The loss came on the heels of an emotional 21-17 road win at the LSU Tigers. Alabama head coach Nick Saban commented how he felt the win at LSU drained his team and they lacked energy for the Aggies contest. The Georgia Bulldogs loss was a lot worse as the team suffered a beat down to the South Carolina Gamecocks on October 6th 35-7 as a +1 point underdog. The Bulldogs seemed to have a hard time dealing with the physical bone crunching hits dealt by the Gamecocks in the loss. Alabama defensively is a lot like South Carolina on the offensive and defensive line and this could pose a problem for the Bulldogs who were not competitive in the game. The Crimson Tide has the best defense in college football as they allow just 233 yards and only 9 points a game. Georgia allowed Tennessee 44 points and South Carolina 35 points this season. The Bulldogs defense is 69th in all of college football defending the run as they allow 163 yards per game on the ground this season.

Stanford enters the PAC 12 conference championship game with a perfect 6-0 straight up record at home while the UCLA Bruins are 4-1 away from home. They faced off in the PAC 12 conference regular season finale as Stanford traveled to the Rose Bowl and crushed UCLA 35-17 as a -2 ½ point betting favorite. When you look at the losses suffered by the Bruins this season you find that the team struggled with the physical style defenses as they have dropped decisions to Stanford, California and Oregon St. Stanford in their win last week was able to win the battle in the trenches as they ran for 221 yards on the UCLA Bruins defense on 49 carries. On the other side of the football the Cardinal defensive line was stout allowing just 73 rushing yards to a good Bruins ground game. It is worth noting that UCLA did not have much to play for last week as they clinched their PAC 12 conference title game spot by beating USC a week earlier. There has been speculation that the Bruins held some of their playbook away from last week’s game to not show too much of their hand for the rematch the following week. Stanford is 10-2 on the season with losses in overtime at Notre Dame and at Washington.

The New Orleans Saints sit at 5-6 on the season and will be facing a very difficult schedule down the stretch to finish their 2012 campaign. On November 11th New Orleans tagged the Atlanta Falcons with their only loss of the season as they earn the 31-27 home win as a +1 point underdog. The total was lined at 54 in the game and it goes over by four points. The Saints defense held the Falcons out of the end zone late in the game as Atlanta was deep in New Orleans territory and turned the ball over on downs. The Falcons were able to get into the red zone six times and came away with a touchdown just three times. Since that defeat the Falcons has a sluggish four point home win against the Arizona Cardinals and last week they travel to a hot Tampa Bay Buccaneers team and comes away with a 24-23 road win as a -1 point road favorite. The Falcons has not had success covering the point spread recently at home. They fail to cover against the Cardinals, Raiders and Panthers winning by a combined margin of just nine points in those three games. Their one cover in their past four home games came against Dallas in a 19-13 win where they kick a field goal late to cover the number.

First round draft pick Anthony Davis has missed the team’s past few games and is expected to be out for up two weeks with a right ankle problem. The Hornets have lost seven straight games to fall to 3-9 on the season. They will be playing the back end of a back to back and their third game in four nights. During this current road trip the Hornets have allowed an average of 109 points per game in the three games. They have allowed their past seven opponents to tally up 100 points or more on the scoreboard. The Clippers come home after a bad road trip.

Overall for the season the Clippers have shot over 47% from the field and allowed just 43% shooting to their opponents. Jamal Crawford a new addition to the Clippers roster this season leads the team in scoring with 18 points per game and a very good 47% shooting from the field in his sixth man role for the team.

Carolina Panthers versus Philadelphia Eagles NFL Pro Football Betting Preview

Monday, November 26th, 2012

On Monday Night Football Cam Newton will lead his 2-8 Carolina Panthers as the road favorite as they take on the 3-7 Philadelphia Eagles in NFL action on November 26th. The Panthers and Eagles will begin from Philadelphia at 8:30PM Eastern Time and ESPN will deliver the TV broadcast.

The current odds available for wagering at Oddsmaker, where the bonuses are the best in the business has the Carolina Panthers favored by –3 points with an over under line of 40 ½ points. A money line wager on the favored Carolina Panthers will return -150 odds. Bettors who believe the Philadelphia Eagles can pull off the home win on Monday Night Football can take back +130 odds for their wager on the money line.

It is a bit shocking to find the Carolina Panthers despite losing seven of eight games as a field goal favorite at Philadelphia. The Eagles have lost six straight games but to pretty good competition in Washington, Dallas, New Orleans, Atlanta, Detroit and Pittsburgh. They do have a notable 19-17 home win on Sunday Night Football to the New York Giants weeks ago. The Carolina Panthers has to be about the weakest team on that six team list that the Eagles have faced during their recent slide. With Michael Vick still hampered by his concussion it will be rookie Nick Foles out of Arizona to start for the second time this season. Foles threw for two interceptions in the Eagles 31-6 road loss last week to the Washington Redskins. This will be the rookie QB’s first home start. He came in relief of Vick two weeks ago at home against the Cowboys. Philadelphia in their past four games has lost by wide margins of 13 points or greater. Carolina at 2-8 on the campaign has little hope for a playoff spot. They last played last week at Tampa Bay where they suffered their eighth loss of the season. They were sitting pretty good with an eleven point lead on the upstart Tampa Bay teamdeep into the fourth quarter. The Panthers squandered the lead and allowed the Buccaneers to rally for the overtime period.

Friday, November 23rd, 2012

Bettors who believe the Green Bay Packers can travel into New York on Sunday night football and come away with a straight up win can pick up +120 odds for their wager on the money line.

With quarterback injuries nagging the Chicago Bears the Green Bay Packers are in a good position to take control of the NFC North division. After a 2-3 start to the season the Packers have rolled off five straight victories. In their past four games the Packers have allowed no more than 20 points to any one opponent. It looked like the Giants were going to coast to an NFC East title but the team has slipped in recent games with two straight losses. After blowing a ten point fourth quarter lead in a loss to Pittsburgh the Giants traveled to Cincinnati and was sloppy in a 31-13 road defeat as a -3 ½ point favorite. The Giants are coming off their bye week looking to maintain their two game lead in the NFC East division.

Last year the New York Giants behind a solid pass rush and good offensive game plan against a bad Packers defense was able to earn the NFC Divisional Round Playoff win by the score of 37-20 and covering as a +8 point road underdog. After the Packers cut into a Giant halftime lead to 20-13 in the third quarter the Giants responded with 14 straight points to open up a 21 point lead. Eli Manning had a monster game with 330 yards passing and three touchdowns passes as New York gains 424 offensive yards in the win.

A money line bet on the home favored LA Lakers will return -245 odds. Bettors who believe the New Jersey Nets can enter Staples Center and come away with a straight up win can receive +205 odds for their money line wager.

The Lakers are adapting nicely offensively under the Mike D’Antoni system as the club is 2-0 since the new head coach took over the reign of the franchise officially last Friday. They put up 114 points in an 8 point win at home to Phoenix and last time out on Sunday night they post the 119-108 home win against the Houston Rockets. The Lakers covered the spread in each win with the total flying over each time. With D’Antoni on the sidelines last Sunday night the Lakers put up 40 points after 12 minutes and 68 points at the half in the win.

Center Brook Lopez chips in with 17 points and 6 boards and a respectable 54% shooting percentage.
