Bet on the NFLNFL betting lines were beaten yet again by the New Orleans Saints on Monday night as they remain undefeated with a straight up NFL betting mark of 7-0. NFL betting lines have been beaten in 6 of those 7 games by the Saints who are the NFL betting favorite to win the NFC title and make the Super Bowl.
But before everyone writes off the rest of the NFC with the NFL betting lines don’t forget about Brett Favre and the Minnesota Vikings who are coming off a 38-26 NFL betting win and cover at Green Bay to take firm command of the NFC North. The Vikings enter their bye week this week with a NFL football betting mark of 7-1 straight up and 5-3 against the spread while the Packers were fully exposed as a faux contender. The closest thing that Green Bay has to a quality win over the NFL betting lines this year was their opening night victory over the Chicago Bears.
The New York Giants look to be a team in serious trouble as they lost their third game in a row with a 17-40 blowout loss to the NFL betting lines at Philadelphia. The Eagles are now tied with the Dallas Cowboys for first place in the NFC East after Dallas scored an impressive 38-17 win over the NFL betting lines against Seattle. The Indianapolis Colts look to be the favorite with the NFL betting lines to win the AFC title as they remained undefeated after an 18-14 home win over the San Francisco 49ers. The Colts failed to cover the NFL betting lines, however, as 11-point chalks.
The Denver Broncos may have gotten a reality check last week in their first loss to the NFL betting lines at Baltimore in a 30-7 blowout win by the Ravens who climbed back into the wild card race in the AFC. The New York Jets were doomed by special teams mistakes in a 25-30 home loss to the Miami Dolphins that dropped them to 4-4 straight up. The Buffalo Bills were fully exposed as frauds in a pathetic 10-31 home loss to the Houston Texans as 3.5-point home dogs. Houston is well on their way to their first ever post season appearance.
