Bet on the NFLNFL betting lines went back to form in many ways this past NFL betting weekend as several teams got a reality check while others bounced back into contention. NFL betting lines handicappers saw the three worst NFL betting commodities all go down in flames while the Colts and Saints stayed undefeated.
Oakland and Kansas City were coming off surprise wins with the NFL betting lines in week 6 but were put back down to earth last NFL betting weekend as the New York Jets slaughtered the Oakland Raiders 38-0 and the San Diego Chargers manhandled the Kansas City Chiefs 37-7. The St. Louis Rams remained winless as they were blown out by the Indianapolis Colts 42-6. Indianapolis has been the most impressive NFL football betting commodity in the AFC.
The New Orleans Saints remained unbeaten with an impressive 46-34 win over the NFL betting lines at Miami as their explosive offense again carried the day. It’s the best start in Saints history. The Buffalo Bills won their second game in a row with a 20-9 win with the NFL betting lines over the Carolina Panthers. Many fans believe its no coincidence that the Bills began winning when quarterback Trent Edwards went out with an injury.
The Minnesota Vikings suffered their first loss of the season at Pittsburgh to the defending world champions, who beat the NFL betting lines in a 27-17 win. The Vikings were closing in to tie the game before a deflected interception that brought home the bacon for Pittsburgh. Minnesota will be at Green Bay this week in a much anticipated NFL betting lines matchup and the Packers are coming off their second impressive win of the season as they won at hapless Cleveland 31-3.
The Houston Texans continue their quest for a first ever playoff spot as they beat San Francisco 24-21 but failed to cover the NFL betting lines as 3.5-point chalks. The 49ers fell to 3-3 and Alex Smith has been named quarterback.
The New England Patriots look to be back into top form as they blew out Tampa Bay 35-7 for an easy payout with the NFL betting lines. The Bucs remain winless so far this year.Arizona scored a 24-17 win at the Giants, who have now lost 2 straight. The surprising Cardinals defense continues to impress.
The Bengals scored a huge 45-10 bounce back home win over the Bears while the Cowboys came back strong after the bye to beat Atlanta 37-21. Jim Zorn’s humiliation as Washington coach continued as the Redskins lost at home to division rival Philadelphia 17-27. The Redskins are imploding at 2-5.
