Eagles vs. Cowboys Predictions: Odds and Picks for Sunday Night Football

Bob Wankel - October 20, 2019

The Eagles and Cowboys will cap off the seventh Sunday of the NFL season in primetime tonight when the two teams meet at AT&T Field with first-place on the line in the NFC East. This showdown between bitter rivals figures to be one of the most heavily bet games of the day, particularly at PA online sportsbooks, which are offering tons of great promos and bet boosts for this one. We’ll take a look at those deals, the current odds, as well as some picks and predictions in this Eagles vs. Cowboys betting preview.

If recent history serves as any indication of what’s about to go down tonight, then we should be in for quite a treat. Three of the last four meetings between the Eagles and Cowboys played in Arlington have been decided in overtime, and with the Cowboys a short favorite ahead of this one, yet another tight contest is expected by experts and oddsmakers alike.

Dallas enters having lost three straight games after beating up on the JV portion of its schedule for three weeks to open its season. The Cowboys have been plagued by injuries and missed opportunities in recent weeks, but appear to be getting healthier just in time for this pivotal showdown. The same could be said of an underachieving Eagles team that has been decimated by injuries to key players while also letting potential wins, quite literally, slip through their fingers against both Atlanta and Detroit. For as much adversity as each of these two squads have faced in the early going, the winner tonight can wash away some of the frustration and find itself atop the division standings as we near the season’s midway point.

Penn State vs. Michigan Predictions: Odds and Picks for a Top 25 Primetime Clash

Bob Wankel - October 19, 2019

The money should be coming in strong at PA online sportsbooks ahead of tonight’s nationally televised primetime tilt between Michigan and Penn State. Can the oft-criticized Wolverines silence the doubters with what would be a key upset road win (or at least cover the spread), or will Penn State keep its perfect season alive and perhaps grab yet another cover in the process? Let’s run through the best odds, promo offers, and top odds boosts before pivoting to some picks and predictions in our full Penn State vs. Michigan betting preview.

My guess is that if you’re a fan of either Penn State or Michigan, you have probably heard this week that Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh has been absolutely B.R.U.T.A.L. against Top 25 opponents since taking over at his alma mater prior to the 2015 season.

Harbaugh was supposed to wash away the disappointment of the Rich Rodriguez and Brady Hoke eras, while restoring Michigan to its place among college football’s elite programs. That hasn’t happened to this point as the Wolverines prepare for No. 7 Penn State with an almost unthinkable 1-9 record against Top 10 teams under Harbaugh. They will need to reverse that trend starting tonight in order to stay alive in the Big Ten East race and ultimately have a chance to meet the considerable expectations that were placed upon them prior to the season.

The Penn State defense is second in the country in sacks, has allowed only five touchdowns in 82 drives, and has limited Big Ten opponents to 1.2 yards per carry over its first three conference games. Despite owning a 3-1 record head-up against Penn State since Harbaugh took over, Michigan is up against it tonight as a big underdog in what will be an electric atmosphere at Beaver Stadium. Keep in mind this will be a “White Out” game.

It’s worth noting that Penn State obliterated Michigan two years ago, 42-13, the last time these two teams played in one of these “White Out” games.

Premier League Betting Guide Week 9

Philip Keidel - October 18, 2019

Another international break is over, and if you support the United States Men’s National Team, the break didn’t end fast enough. The Americans lost to Canada 2-0 on Tuesday, and truth be told they could have lost by four or five.

Spare a thought for Christian Pulisic. Eighteen months ago, he was a rising star at Borussia Dortmund and the face of the next wave of great American players. Today, he’s a guy who cannot get regular minutes at Chelsea and was substituted on Tuesday night with his team level after 60 minutes because his national team manager thought Paul Arriola was a better bet to help the Americans score a goal. Life comes at you fast.

You have probably already spent the money we won two weeks ago with two more winners out of three. Do I prefer perfect weeks? I do. Would I take two winners from three picks every week from here through the end of the season? Yes, yes I would.

Onto this week’s winners. All odds courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook PA, where new users can take advantage of their $500 risk-free bet .

If you’re in Pennsylvania, check out our PA online sports betting page, which has a plethora of promos being offered from the best sportsbooks available. Don’t worry if you’re in New Jersey. We’ve got you covered with our NJ online sports betting page.

 

MANCHESTER UNITED (+420) v. LIVERPOOL (-145) — DRAW (+280)

It’s unfathomable that anyone at Manchester United could honestly believe that this is a good time for the Red Devils to host Liverpool. A quick look at the table shows Liverpool on top with 24 points, unblemished in eight league matches. United, conversely, is all of the following: a. 15 points behind Liverpool; b. in 12th place; and c. tied on 9 points with newly-promoted Sheffield United and perennial relegation scrappers Brighton and Hove Albion. United isn’t a very good match for anyone these days, much less Liverpool.

Chiefs vs. Broncos Predictions: Odds and Picks for Thursday Night Football

Bob Wankel - October 17, 2019

It’s about that time again. Thursday night is here, Week 7 of the NFL regular season is upon us, and it’s time to see if we can start off a big weekend of football betting across PA online sportsbooks with a win in our Chiefs vs. Broncos betting preview.

I believe in Andy Reid.

Fatal last words if uttered in January, I know, but if said during the regular season throughout Big Red’s 21-year head coaching career, that belief has been rewarded more often than not.

It’s okay. I know you’re scared, but say it with me…I believe in Andy Reid…I believe in Andy (gulp) Reid.

To ease your concern, Reid has won 10 or more games a remarkable 13 times throughout his first 20 seasons, accumulating a .612 winning-percentage in the process. That doesn’t just happen by accident.

The Chiefs looked poised to coast past the double-digit win mark once again this season after getting out to a perfect 4-0 September start behind early-season MVP candidate Patrick Mahomes, but have uncharacteristically sputtered in back-to-back October losses at Arrowhead Stadium.

The Broncos, meanwhile, struggled through a winless first month before rebounding on the strength of a suffocating defense that has allowed a total of only 13 points combined in back-to-back wins, setting up a crucial AFC West clash tonight in Denver.

You know already know who I’ve got in this one because I believe in Andy Reid, baby, and I’ve got plenty of reasons why, so let’s get into it.

Nationals’ Odds To Win The World Series Skyrocketed From Novelty Bet To Coin Flip

Kirsten Hatton - October 17, 2019

The Nationals are in the World Series.

A team that lost Bryce Harper to the Phillies in the offseason is headed to the Fall Classic. Counted out early as a young, talented team lacking experience, the Nats were 24-33 at the end of May. Things turned around in June and they entered the All-Star Break at 47-42.

But with trade deadline bullpen pickups, the team managed to have a successful second half of the season. After the All-Star Break, the Nationals went 46-27 and managed to squeeze into the  Wild Card game with the Brewers, trailed 3-1 in the eight, saw their odds to win it all spike to +5000, and now sit on the cusp of the franchise’s first World Series championship… at +140 odds.

We thought we would take a look back at the 2019 season to see how the odds of the Nats winning World Series changed throughout the year.

Here are the Broad Lines odds ,courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook:

  • June 25, prior to three-game winning streak: +5000 (1% probability)
  • All-Star Break: +2800 (2%)
  • September 29, end of regular season: +1700 (6%)
  • October 2, trailing 3-1 in the Wild Card Game: +5000 (1%)
  • October 3, before NLDS: +1500 (6%)
  • October 11, before NLCS: +450 (18%)
  • October 17, before World Series: +140 (41%)
