Sports Interaction News Week 40 – Here is the action report and odds for the NFL season as well as the NHL early season action. In the world of NBA, odds for the upcoming regular season which tips off next week and big things are expected from the Toronto Raptors. Below find all the great action available during the Sports Interaction upcoming week 40, 2018.
If you’re a fan of betting the home field advantage, you should be rolling into Week 6 with full pockets and a big smile. In a week in which we saw just one point spread above a touchdown, home teams went 11-4 against the spread, while five underdogs won outright.
Early this week there are currently seven home teams set as underdogs on the Week 6 NFL odds board, including the New York Giants who are set as 3-point underdogs at home to the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday Night Football. The Giants fell to 1-4 on the year thanks to a last-second field goal in Carolina last week, but there were some encouraging signs from their offence. Still, they’re going to have to do that to earn bettors’ respect. About 70 percent of early bets are on Philadelphia -3.
Sunday Night Football features the top team in the NFL against arguably the league’s most popular franchise. The Kansas City Chiefs aren’t just one of two undefeated teams at 5-0, but they’re also 5-0 against the spread as they visit Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. Early odds have the Patriots as 3.5-point favourites, but 76 percent of bettors are siding with the home underdog in this one.
The NFL’s only other undefeated team, the Los Angeles Rams, takes on the league’s worst ATS team in the Denver Broncos. Denver is 0-4-1 against the number this season and has lost three games in a row. Oddsmakers are giving the Broncos seven points in this matchup and almost 80 percent of bettors are still backing the visiting Rams.
Sure, it’s very early in the NHL season, but now’s the time to evaluate teams that many may have overlooked. Just check out the Carolina Hurricanes, who are 3-0-1 while averaging 4.2 goals per game as they’ve taken over top spot in the Metropolitan Division. In the West, the Anaheim Ducks are sitting pretty at 3-0 too, but they’re getting it done with defence, allowing just four goals to start the season. The Hurricanes and Ducks have already earned their betting supporters more than five units combined.
The regular season tips off next week and big things are expected from the Toronto Raptors. The Raps are at +225 to win the Eastern Conference, just behind the Boston Celtics at -120 and Toronto is fifth on the NBA Championship odds board at +1300. The first night of the regular season is Tuesday, Oct. 16.
