CINCINNATI – While most of the betting action this Saturday will be placed on Power 5 college football Conference Championships, there are other games worth betting on. When looking through online sportsbooks, there are certain betting lines that look ripe for breaking the book.
Starting with the college football betting landscape, the Cincinnati Bearcats are looking to make a statement against the Tulsa Golden Hurricane in hopes of making a College Football Playoff bid.
Across the pond, English Premier League is hosting a lucrative matchup when Everton take on Arsenal in a game that both football clubs need to win.
Coming back to the states, the NFL is also beginning to broadcasts games on Saturday’s with the Buffalo Bills vs. Denver Broncos as the preferred NFL betting matchup of the day.
With the proper trends and stats in hand, these games could help bettors break the book and go into the holiday week with a little extra in their bankroll.
Cincinnati Bearcats vs. Tulsa Golden Hurricane Odds
Cincinnati vs. Tulsa:
- Moneyline: Cincinnati (-650) Tulsa (+425)
- Spread: Cincinnati (-14.5)
- O/U: 45
The long-awaited AAC matchup between the two best teams in the conference will finally take place Saturday (knock on wood). The last time these two teams tried to face off, the game had to eventually be cancelled due to COVID-19 problems.
Cincinnati has run into their fair share of COVID-19 related cancellations with their last game having taken place almost a month ago when they defeated the UCF Golden Knights 36-33 on November 21.
This begs the question if the Bearcats are going to come into the game rested or rusted.
Cincinnati will look to play their best game of the season against the Golden Hurricane in hopes to make a somewhat of a case to play in the CFP. But, the Golden Hurricane are no slouches.
Since their first and only loss to the Oklahoma State Cowboys in September, Tulsa has won 6 straight. What’s more impressive is that they are 7-1 against the spread in their last eight games overall.
College football betting sites have Tulsa (+14.5) at -115 odds. But, when looking at alternate spreads, bettors can put action on the Golden Hurricane (+10) at +150 odds.
Everton vs. Arsenal Odds
Everton vs. Arsenal:
- Moneyline: Everton (+145) Arsenal (+190) Draw (+245)
- Spread: Everton (0.0)
- O/U: 2.5
Everton and Arsenal are two teams that came into the season with a lot of promise, but both have hit walls coming into this game. Everton however, seems to be more on the upswing.
Everton won their first four games this season before going through a stretch where they won just once out of seven games. However, since then, they are rising a two-game win streak. They beat Chelsea last Saturday 1-0 and followed it up this past Wednesday with a 2-0 win over Leicester City.
Arsenal, on the other hand, don’t have anything to hang their hat on this season. The Gunners haven’t won an EPL match since November 1. They’ve lost four and tied twice in their last six games in the league.
They also can’t seem to get out of their own way, having incurred a red card in their last two matchups.
Judging by the current soccer odds and current play of both football clubs, the best value is definitely on Everton’s +145 odds.
Buffalo Bills vs. Denver Broncos Odds
Buffalo vs. Denver:
- Moneyline: Buffalo Bills (-245) Denver Broncos (+205)
- Spread: Buffalo (-5.5)
- O/U: 49
The Buffalo Bills are beginning to go from dark horse to win the Super Bowl to a possible favorite. The Bills are coming into this matchup riding a three-game win streak, the most recent of which comes against the formerly 11-1 Pittsburgh Steelers.
The Denver Broncos, however, are coming into this game with momentum as they defeated the Carolina Panthers last weekend 32-27. The week prior they lost to the league-leading Kansas City Chiefs 22-16, but managed to cover the 13.5 point spread placed on them before the matchup.
Their ability to cover the spread in this matchup can be argued will be more difficult.
The Buffalo Bills are coming into this game 5-0 against the spread in their last five games overall. They are also 6-0 against the spread in the last six times they’ve played the Denver Broncos.
NFL betting sites opened the spread for this matchup at -5.5 in favor of the Bills, seen it move to -7.0 midway through the week, and back down to -5.5. Right now is as good of a time as ever to take the Bills on the spread.
