Football fans and betting players alike should have a busy weekend lined up, and here is a look at the best matchups from both the NFL and the college ranks.
Kansas City Chiefs at Buffalo Bills – The Chiefs didn’t play great against Cleveland, but they did enough to stay undefeated. They’ll head to Buffalo to take on the 3-5 Bills, who are 2-2 at home, and all four games have been decided by three points or less.
Atlanta Falcons at Carolina Panthers – The Panthers have won three in a row to go to 4-3, and they’ll aim to pile on the 2-5 Falcons, who have suffered some massive injuries this season. Carolina is a 7.5-point NFL betting favorite over their NFC South rivals.
Chicago Bears at Green Bay Packers – In the Monday night game, the 5-2 Packers will look to remain perfect at home as they host the 4-3 Bears. The linesmakers could be waiting to hear word on Chicago QB Jay Cutler, who will likely sit because of a groin injury.
Miami at Florida State – The third-ranked Seminoles are favored by a staggering 22 points at home against their rivals from Miami, and the seventh-ranked Hurricanes have dropped three straight in this Florida grudge match from the ACC.
Oklahoma State at Texas Tech – The #18 Cowboys have won four in a row over the #15 Red Raiders, but Texas Tech is favored by 2.5 points at home in this crucial Big 12 showdown between two teams flying under the radar.
Michigan at Michigan State – Last year, the #21 Wolverines snapped a four-game skid against their state rivals, the #22 Spartans. Michigan State is being tipped by the sportsbook as 4.5 points at home over Michigan in this Big Ten clash where bragging rights will trump the rankings.
