Top Bet Games to Bet On

Miami Dolphins vs. New Orleans Saints (8:40 PM ET)

Ryan Tannehill of the Miami Dolphins is used to flying under the radar as part of the much-ballyhooed NFL quarterback class of 2012. That will certainly be the case for the second-year signal caller on Monday night when he brings his unbeaten team into New Orleans for a prime-time showdown with Drew Brees and the undefeated Saints. [sc:Other240banner ]

Miami is seeking its first 4-0 start since 1995 and will try to knock off an NFC South power for the second straight week. The return of head coach Sean Payton from a one-year suspension due to the “Bounty-gate” scandal has the Saints back on track after a 0-4 start torpedoed their 2012 season.

Odds: Miami (+7) vs. New Orleans (-7), O/U: 49

The Dolphins are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games while the Saints are 3-1 ATS in their last 4 home games.


Tampa Bay Rays vs. Texas Rangers (8:05 PM ET)

Game 163 — for all the marbles on Monday night.

After 162 games, the Tampa Bay Rays and the Texas Rangers will meet in a bonus tie-breaking knockout game to decide who enters the postseason.

Both teams are tied at 91-71 and are on a hot stretch. The Rays avoided a meltdown with their 7-6 victory over the Blue Jays, while the Rangers beat the Angels, 6-2.

Odds: Tampa Bay (-109) vs. Texas (-101), O/U: 7.5

Entering this do-or-die game, the Rays are 8-2 in their last 10 games while the Rangers are 7-0 in their last 7 games.
