Football is the dominant force at most online sportsbooks, and there is a slew of matchups this week that you should have on your radar.
San Francisco at St. Louis Thursday night NFL Network – The 49ers and Rams are both 1-2 heading into this Thursday night game, but San Fran’s struggles have to be the story as they have looked terrible in losses to Seattle and Indianapolis. The Niners are favored by three on the road in this NFC West clash.
New York Giants at Kansas City Chiefs – The winless Giants are coming off a whipping at the hands of Carolina, and are four-point underdogs on the NFL betting lines against the unbeaten Chiefs, who had a long week off after a big win in Andy Reid’s return to Philadelphia last Thursday.
Philadelphia Eagles at Denver Broncos – The Eagles’ fast-paced offense has been up and down in three weeks under Chip Kelly, leading to a 1-2 record so far. The Broncos will likely be undefeated after a Monday night game at home against Oakland, and they’ve been red-hot to start 2013.
LSU at Georgia –The sixth-ranked Tigers are 4-0 as they travel to Athens to battle the 2-1 Bulldogs, who are three spots behind LSU in the rankings. This will be Georgia’s third game against a top-10 team after a loss at Clemson and a win over South Carolina. UGA is favored by three.
Oklahoma at Notre Dame – This will be OU’s first road game of the season as the 14th-ranked Sooners are favored by 3.5 points at #22 Notre Dame, who are 3-1 after eking out a win over Michigan State at home.
Ole Miss at Alabama – The top-ranked Crimson Tide have a 16.5-point edge on the betting lines over the visiting #21 Rebels in this SEC tilt between unbeaten teams, and Ole Miss have played three of their first four away from home.
