Top Sports Bets of the Week: 5 Most Exciting Games to Bet (Oct 9-15)

Fierce rivals in college and the NFL do battle on the gridiron this week and one NFL team fights to save its pride. Over in the MLB Playoffs, a team fights to save its season.

Top 5 Most Exciting Games to Bet on This Week:

Best NFL Betting

Jacksonville Jaguars (+27) vs Denver Broncos (-27) — Sunday, 4:05 PM ET

It’s slowly becoming an historic season for all the wrong reasons for the Jaguars, but Blaine Gabbert and co. will hope to spoil the Broncos’ party. Jacksonville is 5-1 SU in its last 6 games vs Denver, who will be overwhelming favorites.

Peyton Manning and the Broncos were handed their toughest test last week and passed. The Jaguars will be a much easier assignment, but the massive spread is another matter entirely. Denver is 9-1 SU in its last 10 games at home.

Washington Redskins (+6) vs. Dallas Cowboys (-6) — Sunday, 8:30 PM ET

With a bye on Week 5, Robert Griffin III and the Redskins’ strong passing attack (285 yards per game, 8th in NFL) have two weeks to prepare a game plan for exploiting the Achilles heel of the Cowboys: its secondary (326 yards allowed per game, 31st in NFL). Washington is 6-0 ATS vs Dallas.

But Dallas, buoyed by its gutsy display in the 51-48 home loss to the Broncos, will look for a repeat performance against Washington’s awful defense (27th in passing yards allowed, 31st in rushing yards allowed). Dallas is 14-3 SU in its last 17 games at home vs Washington.

Best NCAA Football Betting

Florida (+7.5) vs LSU (-7.5) – Saturday, 3:30 PM ET

Quarterback Tyler Murphy has filled in admirably for the injured Jeff Driskel but he will get by far his toughest challenge as a starter when he leads the Gators to Baton Rouge to face LSU. Florida is 5-1-1 ATS in its last 7 road games against LSU.

Murphy will go toe to toe with the in-form Zach Mettenberg, who became just the third QB in school history to record back-to-back 300 yard passing games. LSU is an imposing 22-3 SU in its last 25 home games.

Oklahoma (-14) vs Texas (+14) – Saturday, 12:00 PM ET

Mack Brown will be under pressure to produce a result as his unranked Texas faces the surging Oklahoma Sooners in the Red River Rivalry. The total has gone OVER in 4 of Texas’s last 5 games vs Oklahoma.

Bob Stoops and the undefeated Sooners, just two weeks removed from handing Notre Dame its first home loss in two years, would love nothing more than to hammer the final nail on Mack Brown’s coffin in his own backyard in Austin. Oklahoma is 9-4 SU in its last 13 games vs Texas.

Best MLB Betting

Boston Red Sox vs Tampa Bay Rays – Wednesday, 8:37 PM ET

The Rays have yet to lose a game with their season on the line. But after pulling one game back against the Red Sox, can they do it two more times? Only seven teams have come back from an 0-2 deficit to win an LDS. Rays are 4-0 in their last 4 home games.

Boston has some experience coming from 2 games down to win; it did the feat in 1999 and 2003. They’ll send midseason acquisition Jake Peavy on the mound to prevent a do-or-die Game 5 in Fenway Park. Red Sox are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings vs Rays.

With so much in store this weekend, there’s no reason to miss out on all the great action.
