This week in the NFL, teams with undefeated records try to remain perfect while a winless team hopes to break its streak. In the NCAA, we have a couple of huge match-ups between teams ranked in the Top 25. And in the MLB, there will be one final regular season showdown for two likely playoff foes.
Top 5 most exciting games to bet on this week:
Best NFL Betting
1. Miami Dolphins (+6.5) vs. New Orleans Saints (-6.5) — Monday, 8:40 PM ET
Two teams with perfect records are set to collide when the Miami Dolphins face the New Orleans Saints on Monday Night Football.
The much-improved Ryan Tannehill has led the Dolphins to a surprising 3-0 start; Miami is now 5-1 SU in its last 6 games. He faces a re-energized Saints team, who’re very formidable at home. New Orleans is 15-4 SU in its last 19 games at home, but the Saints’ last home loss with Sean Payton on the sideline was almost 1,000 days ago.
2. New York Giants (+4.5) vs. Kansas City Chiefs (-4.5) – Sunday, 1:00 PM ET
The struggling New York Giants are in search of their first win of the year against the Kansas City Chiefs, who New York is 5-0 ATS in their last 5 against. In the absence of a running game, Eli Manning, who’s averaging over 300 yards a game, will have to throw the Giants to victory against the Chiefs.
He might have a hard time doing so against Andy Reid’s 3-0 Chiefs. The strength of Kansas City has been its defense which is allowing only 185 passing yards a game, currently fifth in the NFL. With its mix of strong defense and conservative offense, the total has gone UNDER in 6 of Kansas City’s last 7 games.
Best NCAA Football Betting
3. (6) LSU Tigers (+3) vs. (9) Georgia Bulldogs (-3) – Saturday, 3:30 PM ET
College football is set for a titanic battle as two top-10 ranked schools collide. No. 6 LSU has been quite comfortable on their travels, having won 9 of their last 10 SU. However, the Bulldogs are equally dominant in their home territory, winning 11-1 SU in their last 12 games at Sanford Stadium. Something will have to give in this massive SEC clash.[sc:NCAA490banner ]
4. (14) Oklahoma Sooners (+3.5) vs. (22) Notre Dame Fighting Irish (-3.5) – Saturday, 3:30 PM ET
Last year, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish came into Oklahoma and defeated the Sooners to continue their march to the National Championship game. Oklahoma Sooners football, 5-0 SU in its last 5 road games, can even the score against the Irish this season. It will take some doing, as Notre Dame is 11-1 SU in its last 12 games in North Bend.
Best MLB Betting
5. Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Cincinnati Reds (Sept. 27-29)
Quite possibly the two NL Wild Cards, the Pittsburgh Pirates and Cincinnati Reds finish out the regular season with a three-game series this week. The Reds took two out of three in their series last week. With home-field advantage for the play-in game still up for grabs, these two teams will be playing hard right through to the baseball playoffs.
