Top 5 most exciting games to bet on this week:
Best NFL Betting
1. Sunday Night Football – San Francisco 49ers (+3) at Seattle Seahawks (-3)
Sunday Night Football will feature this showdown between two of the best teams in the NFL, and two of the best young quarterbacks in the league.
Colin Kaepernick and the San Francisco 49ers will face Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks in this NFC West match-up. Both teams are coming off wins, with the Niners beating the Packers and the Seahawks beating the Panthers. Both Kaepernick and Wilson showed well in week 1.
The Seahawks are currently 3-point favorites at home. They’re carrying over their hot stretch from last season, going 7-1 in their last 8 games. They also went undefeated at home last season. Can Seattle start off another undefeated home record with a win against their divisional rivals?
The 49ers are going to bank on Kaepernick’s excellence behind center; he threw for 412 yards and three touchdowns last week, and found his new favorite target in Anquan Boldin, who had 13 catches for 208 yards and one touchdown.
Can San Francisco, who are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games, gain an advantage over their division rival?
On an added note, your wagers aren’t the only interesting bets in this game, as both star quarterbacks made a bit of a wager themselves.
2. Denver Broncos (-5) at New York Giants (+5)
This Sunday afternoon, it’s Manning Bowl III.
The third meeting between brothers Peyton and Eli will be the focus when the Denver Broncos face the New York Giants.
Denver is 12-1 SU in their last 13 games, and are a 5-point away favorite. Peyton had a historic performance in Week 1 when he threw for seven touchdown passes, becoming the first to accomplish the feat in 44 years. Will he have an encore performance against his brother?
Eli, unfortunately, had a bitter-sweet showing in Week 1. Although he threw for 450 yards and four touchdowns, he had three interceptions that contributed to the Giants’ loss against the Dallas Cowboys. He and the Giants will look to bounce back at home, where they are 6-1 SU in their last 7 games.
Peyton is 2-0 SU against his brother. Will Eli finally beat him?

3. Alabama Crimson Tide (-7.5) vs. Texas A&M Aggies (+7.5)
A.J. McCarron and the Alabama Crimson Tide will visit Johnny Manziel and the Texas A&M Aggies in one of the most anticipated match-ups of the college football season.
Alabama is 5-0 SU in its last five games, as is Texas A&M.
Last season, Johnny Football and his Aggies handed the Tide their only loss. Now the reigning two-time national champs will look to get revege, but will have their hands full with stopping the Heisman Trophy winner.
Can Alabama avenge last season’s only loss, or will Manziel beat the champs?

4. New York Yankees vs. Boston Red Sox
The Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees resume their fierce rivalry with a three-game series this weekend. With the MLB’s regular season in its final weeks, both teams still have a lot to play for.
The AL-East leading Red Sox are hoping to secure the division and the top overall seed in the American League as quickly as possible in order to turn their attention to the postseason. A series win over the Yankees will go a long way in cementing their first AL East title in six years.
Meanwhile, the Yankees are still hoping to make the playoffs via the Wild Card play-in game. They are battling divisional rivals Tampa Bay, Cleveland and Baltimore for the final slot.
They’ll have to do it without Derek Jeter, who was shut down for the remainder of the season.
5. Oakland Athletics vs. Texas Rangers
As of now, the Rangers are three-games behind the division-leading Athletics. They will begin their three-game series this Friday, September 13. The opportunity is there for the Rangers to gain on the AL West lead, while the Athletics will also have the chance to create more distance between themselves and the Rangers.
Stay tuned for odds and betting lines for the Athletics vs. Rangers match-up.
