Weekend football betting guide

Tom Brady

Sunday, 1
p.m.

Rams (0-4) at Packers (5-0)

Line: Packers -15.5 (O/U 48)
The Scoop: Yes, it’s a big spread, but the Pack are 4-1 ATS this season. Also, take the over.
Pick: Packers

Bills (4-1) at Giants (3-2)

Line: Giants -3 (O/U 50)
The Scoop: Giants are 2-5 ATS in last seven at home. Blue is favored for name only; go with the Bills.
Pick: Bills

Colts (0-5) at Bengals (3-2)

Line: Bengals -7 (O/U 41)
The Scoop: Cincy is only 5-13 SU in their last 18. They aren’t good and shouldn’t be giving so much.
Pick:?Colts

Panthers (1-4) at Falcons (2-3)

Line: Falcons -4 (O/U 50.5)
The Scoop: Cam Newton is king of the backdoor cover. Falcons won’t let it happen this week, though.
Pick: Falcons

49ers (4-1) at Lions (5-0)

Line: Lions -4.5 (O/U 46)
The Scoop: Lions are undefeated ATS in their last 10 games (9-0-1).
Pick: Lions

Eagles (1-4) at Redskins (3-1)

Line: Eagles-2 (O/U 47.5)
The Scoop: No one believes in the ’Skins. Neither do we, with them 2-5 ATS in their last seven at home.
Pick: Eagles

Jaguars (1-4) at Steelers (3-2)

Line: Steelers -13(O/U 40)
The Scoop: Steelers don’t play many blowouts (last week excluded), which is why they’re 2-3 ATS.
Pick: Jaguars

Sunday,
4:05 p.m.

Browns (2-2) at Raiders (302)

Line: Raiders -7 (O/U 44.5)
The Scoop: Raiders are 0-5 ATS in their last five against Cleveland. But this is a different Raiders team.
Pick: Raiders

Sunday, 4:15 p.m.

Saints (4-2) at Bucks (3-2)

Line: Saints -5 (O/U 49.5)
The Scoop: Saints are better SU, and five isn’t enough to get off them.
Pick: Saints

Cowboys at Patriots

Line: Patriots -7 (O/U 55)
Key Injuries: RB BenJarvus Green-Ellis (foot) probable. WR?Dez Bryant (thigh) probable. DE Jason Hatcher (calf) out. DL Mike Wright (concussion) on IR.
The Scoop: The Pats are 4-1 ATS?this season, while the Cowboys are 1-2-1. The reason? People love the Cowboys and always bet on them regardless of the season results or spreads. So a 7-point spread could be even larger. New England could be without Jerod Mayo, but their offense will be all intact and you know Tom Brady will be putting up points. One word of caution: Stay away from the largest O/U of the week. Feel confident in taking the Pats to cover, but the ’Boys have a good defense.
Pick: Patriots

Sunday, 8:20 p.m.

Vikings (1-4) at Bears (2-2)

Line: Bears -3 (O/U 42)
The Scoop: Minnesota is just 2-12 in its last 14 games on the road. Worse than you would have guessed, right? However, Chicago is getting three for being home, so the experts think this one will be close. One thing the Vikings can do is put pressure on the quarterback. The Bears’ line can’t protect Jay Cutler.
Pick: Vikings

Monday, 8:30 p.m.

Dolphins (0-4) at Jets (2-3)

Line: Jets -7 (O/U 42.5)
The Scoop: Both of these teams are terrible ATS?this season — 1-8 combined. The Jets are a better team by quite a bit, though. And Matt Moore will likely be completely confused by Rex Ryan’s defense. Forget about the trends so far this year. The Jets win, and they will win big. Take the over, while you’re at it.
Pick: Jets

College Football

Saturday, noon

Purdue (3-2) at Penn State (5-1)

Line: Penn State -11
The Scoop: The Lions are 1-5 ATS this year — the opposite of their SU record. Not a good sign.
Pick: Purdue

Indiana (1-5) at Wisconsin (5-0)

Line: Wisconsin -40.5
The Scoop: Talk about a massive spread. The Badgers win easy, but by 41 points? That’s crazy.
Pick: Indiana

Michigan (6-0) at Mich. St. (4-1)

Line: Michigan State -2
The Scoop: Michigan is 5-1 ATS and still are underdogs against MSU. It doesn’t make sense.
Pick: Michigan

S. Carolina (5-1) at Miss. St. (3-3)

Line: S. Carolina -3
The Scoop: The Bulldogs are 1-5 ATS this season. No more Stephen Garcia distraction helps the Gamecocks.
Pick: South Carolina

Saturday, 3:30 p.m.

LSU (6-0) at Tennessee (3-2)

Line: LSU -17.5
The Scoop: LSU will win, but the Vols are 3-1-1?ATS?this season.
Pick:?Tennessee

Ohio State (3-3) at Illinois (6-0)

Line: Illinois -3.5
The Scoop: Every trend will be misleading for this one. The Buckeyes stink. Go with the Illini.
Pick: Illinois

Oklahoma St. (5-0) at Texas (4-1)

Line: OSU -8.5
The Scoop: The Cowboys are 4-1 ATS, including a huge cover last week against Kansas.
Pick: Oklahoma State

Saturday, 6 p.m.

Alabama (6-0) at Mississippi (2-3)

Line: Alabama -26.5
The Scoop: The Tide are 5-1 ATS and are significantly better than the Rebels. Shouldn’t be close.
Pick: Alabama

Saturday, 7 p.m.

Florida (4-2) at Auburn (4-2)

Line: Florida -2
The Scoop: Both coming off blowout losses. We go with Auburn, though, with Florida’s QB questions.
Pick: Auburn

Saturday, 10:15 p.m.

Arizona St. (3-2) Oregon (4-1)

Line: Oregon -14
The Scoop: The Sun Devils are 1-5 ATS in the teams’ last six meetings.
Pick: Oregon
