Sports Interaction News Week 2 2019 – Here is the action report plus odds for the NFL Playoffs plus the Super Bowl favourites as well as the NHL ongoing season. Below find all the great action available during the Sports Interaction upcoming week 2, 2019.
We’re down to eight teams remaining in the NFL playoffs and the New Orleans Saints head into the weekend as the Super Bowl favourite and the biggest favourite on the board for the Divisional Playoff round. The Saints are currently pegged at +220 to win it all, ahead of the Kansas City Chiefs (+400), Los Angeles Rams (+450), and the New England Patriots (+550). From there the rest of the pack is lagging behind on the odds board. The Los Angeles Chargers are at +900, the defending champion Philadelphia Eagles and the Indianapolis Colts check in at +1200, while the Dallas Cowboys are the biggest underdog remaining at +1800.
The weekend’s action kicks off with the Chiefs set as 5-point favourites at home to Indianapolis, with a fat 57.5-point total on the board. Early bettors like the Colts to cover here and the action on the total is split. Kansas City owned the league’s best total offence in the regular season, while the Colts ranked seventh in total offence and fifth in points scored. In Saturday’s nightcap, the Cowboys visit the Rams as 7-point underdogs. Dallas knocked off Seattle last week in the Wild Card round, but is just 1-3 against the spread in its last four.
The Patriots opened as 4.5-point favourites at home to the Chargers for Sunday afternoon’s date. That line has since dropped to New England -4 with more than 65 percent of bets backing the Bolts. Betting over the 47.5-point total for this game is proving to be one of the most popular wagers of the weekend as of now. New Orleans is set as an 8-point home favourite against the Eagles on Sunday evening, but the early money is coming in on Philly to cover that number. More than 60 percent of the bets are on the underdog for this one after Philadelphia stunned the Bears in Chicago last week. The Eagles have won and covered in four straight.
The Pittsburgh Penguins have overcome a slow start to pull into second place in the Metropolitan Division and are one of the hottest teams in the league right now. They’re 9-1 in their last 10. The New York Islanders are another squad to keep a close eye on. They’re 8-2 in their last 10 and are battling for a Wild Card spot in the East. In the West, the Vegas Golden Knights are coming on strong. They haven’t lost a game in regulation since Dec. 17 (8-0-2) and are now tied with the Calgary Flames atop the Pacific Division.
