Bet on the NFLNFL betting lines were beaten again by the Indianapolis Colts and New Orleans Saints last NFL betting weekend as both remain a perfect 10-0 straight up. NFL betting lines handicappers saw the Colts escape at Baltimore 17-15 as 1-point dogs while the Saints scored an easy NFL betting payout at Tampa Bay 38-7.
The Kansas City Chiefs stunned the NFL betting lines with a 27-24 overtime win over the defending Super Bowl champion Pittsburgh Steelers as 10-point NFL betting home dogs for the biggest NFL football betting upset of the weekend. The Minnesota Vikings remained in Super Bowl form with the NFL betting lines as they clobbered the Seattle Seahawks 35-9 as 11-point home favorites. Minnesota is now 9-1 straight up.
The Miami Dolphins climbed off the mat to reach the .500 mark at 5-5 straight up after a 24-27 win over the NFL betting lines at Carolina as 3.5-point dogs. The Green Bay Packers beat the NFL betting lines for the second consecutive game after their humiliating loss at Tampa Bay as they held off a late rally in a 30-24 home win over San Francisco as 5.5-point favorites.
The New York Giants season was on the line at home against the Atlanta Falcons and they scored a 34-31 must win but failed to cover the NFL betting lines as 5.5-point favorites. Atlanta fell to 5-5 and is looking less than certain for a repeat playoff appearance.
The Denver Broncos were the surprise team of the NFL with a 6-0 start but just as everyone started believing in them they have since spiraled down from the sky as they lost their fourth straight game in a 3-32 blowout loss to San Diego as 4-point home dogs with the NFL betting lines. San Diego now has sole possession of first place in the AFC West Division.
Denver’s ex-quarterback, Jay Cutler, and his Chicago Bears are also in a free fall as they lost at home to Philadelphia 20-24 as 2.5-point home dogs with the NFL betting lines. The New England Patriots scored a nice 31-14 home win over the New York Jets as 11-point home favorites to bounce back strong after their controversial loss at Indianapolis. The Jets are now 4-6 and another team that has had a fast fall after a fast start.
And the Houston Texans continue to fall short when it counts as they blew a critical Monday Night game to Tennessee 17-20 as 3.5-point home favorites to damage their attempt to make the playoffs for the first time ever.
