The National Football League resumes with Week 3 action, College Football kicks off some conference match-ups and MLB wildcard chases heat up as all three leagues are firing on all cylinders.
Top 5 most exciting games to bet on this week:
Best NFL Betting
1. Indianapolis Colts (+10) vs. San Francisco 49ers (-10) — Sunday, 4:25 PM ET
The Indianapolis Colts hope to rebound from their four-point loss, but that will be difficult against a San Francisco 49ers team who are looking to recover from the beating they received last Sunday at the hands of the Seattle Seahawks.
The 49ers enter this game as 10-point favorites and are happy to be going back home, as they are 16-6-1 ATS in their last 23 home games. However, the Colts are 8-1 ATS in their last 9 games following a SU loss.
They look good coming into this game, especially with newly-acquired running back Trent Richardson suiting up.
On an added note, the underdog is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings.
2. Buffalo (+1.5) at NY Jets (-1.5) — Sunday, 4:25 PM ET
This Sunday afternoon will feature a match-up between two highly-touted rookie quarterbacks as E.J. Manuel and the Buffalo Bills will visit Geno Smith and the New York Jets.
They both ended Week 2 with opposite results. Whereas Manual headed a game-winning drive, Smith was picked off three times, once in the Jets’ last drive to seal off the New England Patriots’ 13-10 victory.
The Bills have looked great against their division as they are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. AFC East.
Best NCAA Football Betting
3. (23) Arizona Sun Devils (+6) vs. (5) Stanford Cardinal (-6) — Saturday, 7:00 PM ET
Arizona State is coming off a thrilling yet controversial win, but the Sun Devils won’t have time to celebrate as they face a tough challenge in Stanford.
The 23rd-ranked Sun Devils emerged with a 32-30 victory over Wisconsin last week when the Badgers mismanaged the clock and failed to get off a last-second field goal. Arizona State was fortunate to defeat Wisconsin, but a match-up with No. 5 Stanford should provide another stiff test in what could easily be a Pac-12 title game preview.
The Sun Devils are on a roll they are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games. However, Stanford, who are a 7.5-point favorite, feel good going up against conference foes, as they are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 conference games.
4. Michigan State Spartans (+4.5) vs. (22) Notre Dame Fighting Irish (-4.5) — Saturday, 3:30 PM ET
Their unblemished regular season in 2012 has become a distant memory for No. 22 Notre Dame, who needed a spectacular comeback last week to avoid taking a losing record into Saturday’s home match-up against Michigan State. It marks the third consecutive Big Ten Conference opponent for the Fighting Irish and the first road test for the Spartans.
Notre Dame turned in a suffocating defensive effort in a 20-3 win at Michigan State last season.
The Spartans have looked great on the road as they are 8-1 ATS in their last 9 road games. The Fighting Irish love stepping up at home whenever a good team visits Notre Dame Stadium. They are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games vs. a team with a winning road record.
The Fighting Irish go into the game as the 4.5-point favorites.

5. Baltimore Orioles vs. Tampa Bay Rays
The Baltimore Orioles and the Tampa Bay Rays are both vying for positions in the tight wildcard race. Their four-game series starting on Friday, September 20, could determine who is in and who is out.
Both teams should be in fighting shape entering the match-up as the Orioles are coming off games against the AL East-leading Boston Red Sox while the Rays are coming off battles against the Texas Rangers.
Stay tuned tomorrow for the odds and betting line for the Orioles vs. Rays match-up.
