Things are really getting interesting in the world of football. The final unbeaten team in the NFL will face a tough trip against a division rival while a number of top-ten teams are in action in the college ranks.
San Francisco 49ers @ New Orleans Saints – The Saints and 49ers have been the class of the NFC over the past couple of seasons, but San Francisco has won their last two against New Orleans, including last season at the Superdome. The Saints are a three-point NFL betting favorite at home.
Kansas City Chiefs @ Denver Broncos – The 9-0 Chiefs head to Denver, where they have lost three of their last five trips, but head coach Andy Reid was 13-1 in Philadelphia after a bye week. This AFC West showdown will light up Sunday night, when the Broncos will be 8.5-point favorites in the sportsbook.
New England Patriots @ Carolina Panthers – The Panthers have won five in a row, but they have lost three of their last five against the Patriots, including the Super Bowl in 2004. Carolina should be a slight home favorite on Monday night.
Georgia @ Auburn – The No. 7 Tigers have lost four of their last five against the No. 25 Bulldogs, who will be 3.5-point underdogs on the road in this contest from the hard-hitting SEC.
Oklahoma State @ Texas – In this Big 12 encounter, the No. 12 Cowboys are favored by a field goal when they visit the No. 24 Longhorns, and Oklahoma State has won their last two trips to Austin.
Stanford @ USC – The No. 4 Cardinal are coming off a massive win over Oregon, and they’re favored by 3.5 on the road against the Trojans, who have won three in a row overall and would like to end a three-game home losing skid against Stanford.
