Bet on the NFLNFL betting lines again beat the New York Giants for the fourth consecutive time as Big Blue lost their NFL betting matchup to San Diego 20-21 in the final seconds. NFL betting lines handicappers are having increasing doubts about whether or not the Giants can get off the mat and it won’t get any easier for this week’s NFL betting matchup with Atlanta.
The Denver Broncos are cooling off against the NFL betting lines as they were hammered on Monday Night Football by the Pittsburgh Steelers 10-28 to demonstrate that the Broncos are not ready for NFL betting prime time against the best teams. It was Denver’s second consecutive NFL football betting loss.
The Dallas Cowboys have the hot hand with the NFL betting lines as they have taken over first place in the NFC East after an 20-16 win at Philadelphia. The Cowboys have had three consecutive payouts with the NFL betting lines.
The Green Bay Packers suffered the biggest humiliation with the NFL betting lines last week as they lost at winless Tampa Bay 28-38 as they blew a comfortable lead and were completely outplayed in the second half. Rookie quarterback Josh Freeman was one of the heroes for Tampa Bay in his first ever start.
The Indianapolis Colts remained undefeated straight up thanks to a missed 42-yard field goal at the gun by Houston in a 20-17 decision. Indy is becoming a more expensive overlay with the NFL betting lines, however, as they failed to cover the 9 point spread. It was a crushing loss for Houston, who is trying to make the playoffs for the first time at 5-4.
Cincinnati made a bold statement with the NFL betting lines as they beat Baltimore 17-7 as 3-point home dogs to take firm control of the NFC North at 6-2 straight up. Baltimore fell to 4-4.
New Orleans also stayed undefeated straight up after a 30-20 win over Carolina but the Saints also failed to cover the NFL betting lines as 14.5-point home chalks. The Saints may continue to get more expensive on the board the more they win and get noticed.
The New England Patriots haven’t been the same since their loss at Denver in that they have won the following 3 games straight up including last week over Miami 27-17 although they failed to cover as 10.5-point home chalks. The Patriots are in control of the AFC East while Miami is coming back down to earth after last year’s surprise playoff appearance.
