BetAnySports Weekend Betting Preview - Sept. 15-17
Week 2 of action in the 2017 NFL regular season dominates the betting board at BetAnySports over the next few days starting with a Thursday night AFC clash between the Houston Texans and the Cincinnati Bengals. Both teams lost their season opener straight-up as home favorites and the Bengals have been listed as 6.5-point home favorites for this game with the total set at 38.
MLB bettors can focus their attention on this weekend’s NL Central showdown between the St. Louis Cardinals and the Chicago Cubs with first place in the division on the line. Game 1 is scheduled for 2:20 p.m. (ET) at Wrigley Field and Sunday’s series finale at 2:20 p.m. will be the featured matchup on TBS.
Before moving on to the top matchups on Sunday’s NFL slate, there is a pair of head-to-head showdowns on Saturday’s college football slate between nationally ranked teams starting with an SEC battle between No. 23 Tennessee and No. 24 Florida. The Gators are set as 5.5-point home favorites by BetAnySports with the total line set at 49. Game time from Ben Hill Griffin Stadium is set for 3:30 p.m. with CBS carrying the national broadcast. The Volunteers knocked off Florida last season 38-28 as four-point home favorites to snap an extended SU losing streak.
The other big conference showdown on Saturday is in the ACC with No. 3 Clemson going on the road as a three-point favorite against the No. 14 Louisville Cardinals. The total for this 8 p.m. kickoff on ABC has been set at 58.5. The Tigers have won the last three meetings SU with Louisville holding a 2-1 edge ATS.
One of the more interesting matchups on Sunday’s early afternoon NFL slate in a 1 p.m. start on FOX is an inter-conference tilt between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Kansas City Chiefs. Eagles’ head coach Doug Pederson used to work for Chiefs’ head coach Andy Reid, who held that same position in Philly for 14 years. Kansas City is listed as a 5.5-point home favorite and the total is set at 47.5.
Sunday night’s game on NBC at 8:30 p.m. should be a good one as a rematch of last season NFC title game between the Green Bay Packers and the Atlanta Falcons. The Falcons rolled over Green Bay 44-21 in that game, but the Packers hold a 4-2 SU edge in the last six meetings. Atlanta is favored by three points at home this time around with BetAnySports’ total set at 53.5 points.
