Bears Vs Packers TNF Line & Final Score Prediction

Vikings Vs. Packers in NFC North Thursday Night Football Odds Matchup

After two straight Thursday Night Football blowouts can we hope that the Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers will play well into the fourth quarter in their NFC North Thursday Night Football odds showdown when they meet at Lambeau Field.

Both the Vikings and the Packers are coming off dominating performances Sunday, as the Vikings embarrassed the Atlanta Falcons, 41-28, while the Packers dominated the Chicago Bears in the second half in route to a 38-17 victory for Green Bay.

NFC North Thursday Night Football Odds Preview – Vikings Vs. Packers

The Packers (2-2 SU, 1-2-1 ATS) evened their record at 2-2 SU by pounding the snot out of Chicago 38-17 in its Week 4 NFC North divisional battle to easily cover the spread as a 2-point home favorite.

Just days after telling Packers fans everywhere to “relax” veteran quarterback Aaron Rodgers backed up his call for calm by completing an incendiary 22 of 28 passes for 302 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions.

The Packers also picked off Bears quarterback Jay Cutler twice in the win while sacking Cutler once and hurrying him on numerous other occasions.

Minnesota (2-2 SU, 2-2 ATS) enters this matchup coming off a surprising 41-28 spanking of Atlanta in Week 4 that was fueled by the performance of rookie quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.

The former Louisville Cardinals star made his NFL debut by completing 19 of 30 passes for 317 yards while adding 27 rushing yards and one touchdown on five carries.

While the Vikes covered the NFL football odds as a 5.5-point home underdog, Bridgewater suffered a high ankle sprain late in the contest and is questionable for this affair, though he says he’ll be ready to go. Defensively, Minnesota picked off Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan twice in the win.

Green Bay has won two of the last three meetings against Minnesota and seven of the last nine overall. The Packers beat the Vikes 44-31 in Minnesota last October before playing them to a 26-all tie one month later.

Still, with the Packers finding themselves in a big way last week – and desperate to get on a little bit of a roll right now – I just don’t see them failing to get the pretty emphatic win in this intriguing matchup.

While I really like Bridgewater a lot and believe he’s going to have a fine career, I also believe Packers head coach Mike McCarthy has something special up his sleeve that Minnesota’s rookie has not seen in his brief career just yet.

The Vikings are just 1-4 ATS in their last five road games against Green Bay and the home team in this series is 5-2 ATS in their last seven meetings.

Washington Huskies Vs. Oregon Ducks Odds & Betting Predictions

PAC–12 Week 6 NCAAF Odds & Picks feature Arizona at No. 2 Oregon

The Arizona Wildcats and the No. 2 Oregon Ducks will throw down on Thursday night after both teams had 12 days off. This Pac-12 Week 6 NCAAF betting matchup of unbeaten ballclubs that will undoubtedly have postseason implications for both teams.

However the Ducks will have revenge on their minds. Last season in Tuscon the Wildcats beat down the Ducks 42-16, spoiling all of Oregon’s hopes of a Pac-12 conference title and reaching a fifth consecutive BCS game.

On Thursday, the Wildcats will travel to Autzen Stadium for a 10:30pm EST matchup on ESPN against the second-ranked Oregon Ducks.

PAC-12 Week 6 NCAAF Betting Odds Preview

Arizona has used a shock & awe offense to get off to a perfect 4-0 record and enters this contest coming off a bye week following their thrilling 49-45 shootout win against California in Week 4. Unfortunately, the Wildcats failed to cover the spread as an 8-point home against the Golden Bears favorite to fall to a dismal 0-3 ATS over their last three games.

Arizona is ranked fifth in the nation in offense (593.8 ypg) and seventh in passing (365.8 ypg) and has gotten a ton of outstanding contributions from many of its skill position players, starting with gifted quarterback Anu Solomon.

The Wildcats’ freshman signal-caller has completed 63.4 percent of his passes for 1,454 yards with 13 TD passes and just three interceptions. The Wildcats are averaging a whopping 42.0 points per game, good for 17th in the country.

Oregon is also coming off a bye after squeaking past Washington State 38-31 two weeks ago, though the Ducks never came close to covering the spread as a whopping 21.5-point road favorite to fall to a disappointing 1-3 ATS on the season.

“Some people use it (revenge) as a motivating factor,” quarterback Marcus Mariota said of last year’s outcome. “For us it’s just another game.”

The second-ranked Ducks are 10th in the nation in offense (555.2 ypg) and a stellar fourth in scoring (48.5 ppg) while also ranking 43rd in points allowed (21.2).

Junior quarterback Marcus Mariota is playing outstanding football and is the leading candidate to win this year’s Heisman Trophy award. Mariota has completed an incendiary 74.0 percent of his passes for 1,135 yards and 13 touchdowns with no interceptions.

Oregon will however, have to play far better on defense than they did in allowing the Cougars to rack up a whopping 499 total yards in their pac-12 showdown two weeks ago, including 436 yards through the air.

“They do a great job spreading the field, and run the read option,” Oregon safety Reggie Daniels said. "We’ve got to make sure we stay focused on our keys and not look into the backfield and let anybody fool us.

“We have to confuse (Solomon) with disguises and stuff. We’ve got to pretty much stop the read option, and get on those quick passes, and we should be good.”

Analysis: It’s nice that Oregon is playing at home in this contest, but I still don’t see them beating a very good Arizona team by nearly four touchdowns.

The Wildcats are 5-1 ATS in their last six games in the month of October while the Ducks are just 2-7 ATS in their last nine games overall and 1-4 ATS in their last five games as home favorites.

Arizona also recorded a mind-boggling 42-16 blowout win over Oregon last season to cash in and improve to 6-3 ATS in the last nine meetings against their Pac-12 rivals. I say, keep it simple and back the Arizona Wildcats to cover the spread in a losing effort.

My PAC-12 Week 6 NCAAF Odds & Pick: Arizona Wildcats +23.5 Points

Top Winning Week 6 NCAAF Parlay Picks

Top Winning Week 6 NCAAF Parlay Picks

After another exciting week of college football action its time to check the odds board, but lets take a quick look back before I dish out my winning week 6 NCAAF parlay picks.

Heading into week 6 of the college football betting season have taught us many things. The SEC is good, scary good. The Big Ten is, well, not. The number one team in the nation, the Florida State Seminoles are undefeated, but they could easily be 3-1, 2-2 or even 1-3. 

The Seminoles are coming off of two straight come from behind victories, but support from NCAAF oddsmakers is waning.

Florida State received 27 first-place votes, seven fewer than last week, from the media panel Sunday. No. 2 Oregon and No. 3 Alabama both had 13 first-place votes. No. 4 Oklahoma drew the remaining seven first-place votes.

“You’re always concerned, but we can’t control the polls,” FSU coach Jimbo Fisher said Monday. “All we gotta do is keep winning. Polls are for the polls and voters. If we keep winning and doing what we do, we’ll be fine.”

With that said – and the start of Week 6 just days away, let’s get the ball rolling with a two-team parlay.

Top Winning Week 6 NCAAF Parlay Picks

College Football Week 6 Two-Team Parlay Pick

  • Oklahoma State Cowboys –17
  • Wisconsin Badgers –9.5

Iowa State at No. 21 Oklahoma State
When: Sat, Oct.4
Where: Boone Pickens Stadium, Stillwater, Oklahoma
Kickoff: 3:30 M ET
TV: FOX Sports 1
Spread: Oklahoma State –17

I’ve been on the Oklahoma State bandwagon since I picked them to cover against No. 1 Florida State in their 2014 opener and I’m coming back with another selection for the Cowboys in Week 6.

Iowa State is coming off a discouraging 49–28 smackdown at the hands of Baylor on Saturday and I expect the Cyclones to suffer another emphatic loss in this contest. Iowa State has not scored more than 28 points all season long and that’s just not going to get it against an Oklahoma State team that has scored at least 31 points in every game this season – and 40 or more in each of their last three.

The Cowboys average 17.3 points per game more than Iowa State while also giving up 6.0 fewer points per game.

Iowa State is just 3–7–2 ATS in their last dozen games against a team with a winning record while Oklahoma State has gone 6–2 ATS in their last eight conference games and a bankroll-boosting 12–4 ATS in their last 16 home games overall.

With the favorite in this series going 8–1 ATS in their last nine meetings and the Cyclones going just 1–3–1 ATS in their last five road games against Oklahoma State, I think it’s a virtual lock that the Cowboys cash in!

My Pick: Oklahoma State –17

No. 17 Wisconsin at Northwestern
When: Sat, Oct 4
Where: Ryan Field
Kickoff: 3:30 M ET
Spread: Wisconsin –9.5

Wisconsin has won two straight and three of the last four meetings overall against Northwestern and after seeing them this past weekend, I have no doubt that the Badgers are going to cruise to victory.

Wisconsin beat Northwestern 35–6 at home last season and while I’m not expecting a similar outcome in this contest, I do like the Badgers to cover the spread with a little room to spare.

Wisconsin averages 16.0 points per game more than Northwestern while also allowing 2.3 fewer points per game defensively. Not only that, but the 6–2–1 ATS in their last nine conference games and 7–3–1 ATS in their last 11 games following an SU win.

Northwestern is 2–12 ATS in their last 14 games overall and a pitiful 0–9 ATS in their last 9 home games overall – enough said!

My Pick: Wisconsin –9.5 Points

If you like the two-team parlay and you’re really feeling good about adding another game to the aforementioned picks…you can add the following game as well to make it a three-team parlay.

College Football Week 6 Three-Team Parlay Pick

  • Oklahoma State Cowboys –17
  • Wisconsin Badgers –9.5
  • Oklahoma Sooners –5

No. 4 Oklahoma –5 at No. 25 TCU
When: Sat, Oct. 4
Where: Amon G. Carter Stadium, Fort Worth, Texas
Kickoff: 3:30 PM ET
Spread: Oklahoma –5

It’s nice that TCU is giving up just 7.0 points per game defensively, but I’m expecting that statistic to change quickly after the Oklahoma Sooners get through with their Big 12 rivals.

The Horned Frogs have given up just 21 points in three games, but they’ve also played a bunch of weaklings to kick off their 2014 campaign and I think the Sooners are going to give them a serious wake-up call, particularly with their own overpowering defense.

Oklahoma is a perfect 5–0 ATS in their last five road games against a team with a winning home record and 7–1 ATS in their last eight games overall while the Horned Frogs have gone just 4–9 ATS in their last 13 home games and a discouraging 2–5 ATS in their last seven conference games. Oklahoma wins and covers the spread with plenty of room to spare!

My Pick: Oklahoma Sooners –5 Points

If you’d like to make your three-team parlay even more value-packed, then you can add the following matchup as well to make it a four-team parlay.

College Football Week 6 Four-Team Parlay Pick

  • Oklahoma State Cowboys –17
  • Wisconsin Badgers –9.5
  • Oklahoma Sooners –5
  • Alabama Crimson Tide –6

No. 3 Alabama at No. 11 Mississippi
When: Sat, Oct. 4
Where: Vaught-Hemingway Stadium
Kickoff: 3:30 PM ET
Spread: Alabama –6

After watching Alabama lay a huge 42–21 smackdown on Florida in their Week 5 SEC showdown, I am going to urge you to back the Crimson Tide again as they get set to visit undefeated Mississippi.

The Tide have won 10 straight dating back to 2004, including last season’s 25–0 home win as a 14-point underdog and I can see Nick Saban’s team covering this spread despite playing on the road.

Alabama is 6–2 ATS in their last eight conference games and the road team in this series is 5–1 ATS in the last half-dozen meetings. I’m no fan of the Crimson Tide, but I like them to win and cover the spread against a Mississippi team that hasn’t played a real tough opponent as of yet!

My Pick: Alabama –6 Points
