It’s Sunday, which means we have a full day’s worth of NFL action. We also have the continuation of the Premier League weekend, with four matches scattered across England before the NFL games get underway.
BetOnline has another slate of odds boosters ready to roll, so let’s figure out which bet is worth your time.
Premier League: Arsenal and Liverpool BOTH to Win (+450)
Liverpool will host Leicester City on Sunday in one of the best Premier League games of the week. Liverpool have managed to maintain good form in the league despite having lost star defender Virgil Van Dijk for the season. The Reds were held to a 1-1 draw against Manchester City in their last game, but before that they trounced a dangerous Atalanta side 5-0 in the Champions League.
Some of this weekend's fixtures 👇
🇫🇷 Monaco v PSG 🏴 Tottenham v Man City 🇪🇸 Atletico v Barca 🏴 Leeds v Arsenal 🇮🇹 Napoli v Milan 🏴 Liverpool v Leicester
Liverpool are slight -105 favorites to pick up all three points at Anfield on Sunday. The Foxes sit atop the Premier League on 18 points, and they come into this game as winners of each of their last six matches in all competitions. Brendan Rodgers’ side beat Wolves 1-0 in their most recent Premier League match a couple of weeks ago.
Arsenal, who are tied with Man City for 11th in the league, will face Leeds. The Gunners are +128 favorites here, with Leeds listed at +190 at home. Arsenal enters this one following a 3-0 trouncing at the hands of Aston Villa last time out, while Leeds were crushed 4-1 by Crystal Palace in their most recent outing.
NFL: Patriots, Saints, and Ravens ALL to Win (+350)
Fresh off of a stirring win over the Ravens on Sunday night, the Patriots will look to run their winning streak to three games on Sunday in Houston. The Texans have won just two games all year, both of which came at the expense of the lowly Jaguars.
The Pats are one-point favorites, per BetOnline’s latest odds. New England is listed at -130 on the moneyline, with the Texans at home at +110.
The Saints made the surprising decision to start Taysom Hill at quarterback this week. Jameis Winston came in and finished last week’s game following the injury to Drew Brees, but Sean Payton has decided to give Hill an opportunity under center on Sunday against the Falcons. The Saints dipped from 4.5-point favorites to 3.5-point favorites following the news.
Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens will look to bounce back from Sunday’s loss this week at home against the Titans. Baltimore is favored by five points over a Titans team that has dropped three of their last four following a 5-0 start. The Ravens are -240 moneyline favorites here, and they’re looking for revenge after the Titans pulled the upset in last year’s playoffs.
NFL: Steelers (-10.5) to Cover AND Over 46.5 Points (+330)
The Steelers are 9-0 for the first time ever. They easily disposed of the Bengals last week thanks to another stellar outing from Ben Roethlisberger. Pittsburgh is a heavy 10.5-point favorite again this week on the road against the Jaguars, who haven’t won a game since their upset of the Colts way back in Week 1.
There’s little reason to believe Jacksonville can make this a game. The Jags are once again relying on backup Jake Luton, who will have his hands full against the Steelers’ vaunted defense all afternoon. Pittsburgh hasn’t been overly convincing in every game, but the Jaguars may well be the worst team they will have faced thus far. I have little doubt the Steelers cover the spread here, even on the road. The Steelers are a league-best 7-2 against the spread this year.
Both teams have been middle of the pack in terms of hitting the over. The Pittsburgh Steelers are 4-3-2 over/under/push, while the Jags are 5-4 over/under.
NFL: Chargers (-9.5) and Vikings (-7.5) BOTH to Cover (+475)
This week’s matchup between the Jets and Chargers should be interesting. The Jets are looking for their first win of the season. The Chargers are favored by nearly 10 points at home, which feels like a huge trap.
The Los Angeles Chargers are known for making things difficult for themselves, so it wouldn’t be overly shocking to see this one come down to the wire.
Justin Herbert has been fabulous, but Los Angeles still manages to shoot themselves in the foot each and every week. The Jets are obviously horrible, but I’m quite leery of trusting the Chargers to cover such a big spread.
The Vikings, who have bounced back impressively following a disastrous start to the year, check-in as 7.5-point home favorites against the shorthanded Cowboys. Dallas will get Andy Dalton back this week, The Cowboys haven’t been all that competitive since Dak Prescott went down, but the juice (-125) still favors Dallas to cover the spread on Sunday.
NFL: Packers (+2.5) to Cover AND Over 51.5 Points (+310)
The Green Bay Packers will face the Colts in one of the better matchups of the week. Indianapolis picked up a statement win last Thursday over the Titans, and it should be fun to see Indy’s underrated defense going up against Aaron Rodgers and the Packers’ attack.
Highest-graded WRs vs. press covg: 🔹 Davante Adams 91.7 🔹 Justin Jefferson 91.6
Davante Adams missed practice on Thursday. If he’s out, Green Bay will have to rely more heavily on the likes of Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Allen Lazard to pick up the slack on the passing game. The Colts have been one of the stingiest defenses in the league all year long, which helps explain why the Packers are underdogs.
Both teams are 5-4 over/under so far in 2020.
What’s The Best Bet?
We can go ahead and write off the Chargers/Vikings two-way bet at +475. The upside is there, but I can’t imagine actually putting money on a team like the Chargers to cover a spread that large. The Jets are the worst team in football, but don’t be surprised if New York finds a way to make this game more competitive than it should be. I wouldn’t touch that bet with a 10-foot pole.
The Packers covering the spread also looks dicey with Adams’ status uncertain. He came up gimpy in last week’s win over the Jaguars, and missing practice Thursday typically isn’t a good sign heading into Sunday. The question marks surrounding Adams give me enough reason to avoid the Packers to cover plus the over at +310.
The Pats, Saints, and Ravens are all in complicated matchups, so banking on all three teams picking up wins looks a bit risky here. All three games feature tight spreads, so it’s easy to see at least one of these games going sideways and blowing up your entire bet.
Leicester have been in good form in the Premier League, but they haven’t faced the most daunting opponents over the course of their rise to the top of the table. Liverpool will be the best team the Foxes will have faced thus far, so Liverpool and Arsenal both to win today at +450 looks very appealing. You’re getting solid bang for your buck with the Premier League booster today.
If soccer isn’t your cup of tea, betting the Steelers to cover plus the over on 46.5 points looks pretty good, too. The Steelers will have to do most of the heavy lifting in order for the game to nudge its way past 47 combined points, but they should have a field day against Jacksonville’s middling defense.
Both bets look like good options today. Bet on Arsenal and Liverpool both to win at +450, or take the Steelers to cover plus the over on 46.5 points at +330.
Boosted Odds Prop Bet:
Liverpool and Arsenal BOTH to Win (+450) OR Steelers (-10.5) to Cover and Over 46.5 Points (+330)
