The action is starting to heat up on the gridiron in both the NFL and NCAA, and this week is loaded with matchups in the sportsbook that will keep you busy on Saturday and Sunday.
Dallas Cowboys at Detroit Lions – A pair of 4-3 teams from the NFC meet in the Motor City, and the Lions are 3-point favorites at home. However, the Cowboys have won two in a row while playing some very good football.
New York Jets at Cincinnati Bengals – The Jets got a hand to shock New England to go to 4-3, but they’ll be 6-point underdogs on the road against the Bengals, who lead the AFC North at 5-2 and have yet to lose in three home games this season.
Atlanta Falcons at Arizona Cardinals – The 2-4 Falcons have fallen from Super Bowl contenders to being 1-point underdogs on the road at 3-4 Arizona. Of course, Atlanta has had to battle through some important injuries.
UCLA at Oregon – #12 UCLA has lost five of their last six at #3 Oregon, who are favored by 22.5 points in Eugene on Saturday. The 7-0 Ducks are trying to keep their BCS title hopes alive, while the 5-1 Bruins are looking to keep pace in the Pac-12 South.
South Carolina at Missouri – The #21 Gamecocks dropped to 5-2 after being upset at Tennessee, and there is a good chance they’ll be the underdogs at Missouri against the #5 Tigers, who are 7-0. However, watch the betting line as both teams could be without their starting quarterbacks.
Texas Tech at Oklahoma – In the Big 12, 7-0 Texas Tech has quietly snuck up to 10th in the BCS rankings, but they’ll be underdogs by a touchdown at #15 Oklahoma, who are 6-1. The Red Raiders have won just twice in their last nine trips to Norman.
