That sound you hear is the cheering of millions of fans as the NFL regular season kicks off on Thursday, while you should also sprinkle in some college football betting and then there is the Sprint Cup race at Richmond, the last event before the Chase begins.
Are You Ready For Some Football?
Baltimore had an unlikely run to the Super Bowl last season, but underwent a lot of changes and when they head to Denver on Thursday night to begin the campaign, they’ll be 9-point underdogs on the NFL odds. New Orleans has head coach Sean Payton back, and they’re favored by a field goal at home against their NFC South rivals from Atlanta. The reigning NFC champs from San Francisco are favored by 4.5 points at home over Green Bay, while Dallas has three points at home on the New York Giants. Finally, Washington is favored by 3.5 points at home against Philadelphia in the first of two Monday night games.
Don’t Forget About The NCAA As Well
On Saturday, Florida is favored by a field goal on the road in their final regular-season meeting with Miami, while USC has a 14.5-point edge on Washington State in their home opener in Los Angeles. The big game of the weekend comes from Michigan, where the Wolverines are favored by 3.5 points in the sportsbook over their rivals from Notre Dame.
Who Makes It Into The Chase At Richmond?
Kevin Harvick won the first race of the year at Richmond, and he should be high in the odds again for the Federated Auto Parts 400 as the field for the Chase will be finalized. There are a number of drivers on the bubble, and the track is only ¾ of a mile long, so there should be some fireworks as drivers look to get to the postseason.
