NFL odds Week 16: Wacky wins and dangerous beats

Dallas Cowboys bettors had been celebrating Saturday as "America's Crew" paid off for moneyline gamblers and people laying the factors in a 40-34 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles on Saturday.

The Cowboys rallied from a 20-17 halftime deficit to cowl the 4 factors (closing line), in addition to money in for moneyline bettors (-213 at FOX Wager).

Welcome to the world of wacky wins and dangerous beats in sports activities betting.

Every week, we'll recap the betting performs that had some folks cashing in and others tearing up their tickets in frustration. To paraphrase famed broadcaster Al Michaels, "these performs are vital to some."

Let's dive into this week's craziness!

How 'bout them Cowboys?

Dallas (11-4) stays within the hunt for the NFC East Division title, due to a come-from-behind win over the Eagles (13-2).

Issues seemed bleak for 'Boys backers, as Philadelphia, taking part in with out injured beginning quarterback Jalen Hurts, led at halftime.

The Eagles took a 34-27 lead 5 minutes into the fourth quarter (Philadelphia bettors who took the 4 factors had been forward by 11) earlier than the Cowboys roared again.

Dallas tied the sport due to a pricey breakdown by Philadelphia's protection. On third-and-30 from the Dallas 29-yard line, Dak Prescott accomplished a 52-yard move to T.Y. Hilton to the Eagles 19 — third-and-30!

CeeDee Lamb's 7-yard landing catch then tied the sport.

The ultimate three possessions for the Eagles resulted in an interception, fumble and turnover on downs.

The fumble — by working again Miles Sanders on the primary play from scrimmage after Dallas took a 37-34 lead — gave the Cowboys the ball at Philadelphia's 21 with simply over two minutes to go.

Brett Maher kicked an insurance coverage 26-yard area with 1:41 to go to make it 40-34. "Insurance coverage" typically means dangerous information to bettors — on this case, Eagles moneyline bettors (+160, guess $10 to win $26 whole) and those that took the 4 factors, because the Cowboys received by six. 

Do not guess in opposition to Vikings in a detailed recreation

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins is fond of claiming, "You want that!"

You understand who likes Cousins and the Vikings? NFL moneyline bettors.

The Vikings have their share of skeptics (and a few statistics again up that skepticism), however Cousins and his teammates improved to 12-3 straight up (SU) with a last-second 27-24 win over the New York Giants on Saturday, regardless of giving up the tying landing with two minutes to go.

Minnesota improved to 11-0 in one-score video games this season, an NFL file. It isn't a fluke, as Minnesota tied an NFL file by taking part in in 14 one-score video games final season. 

A bunch of bettors not as enamored with Minnesota are those that play the factors. The Vikings are 6-8-1 in opposition to the unfold (ATS) this season.

Is that ability or luck? Let the controversy proceed …

Vikings moneyline bettors suppose Cousins has quite a bit to do with their betting windfall.

The Giants scored a landing and the two-point conversion to tie the sport at 24 with two minutes to go.

Cousins took it from there, although it seemed dicey at one level.

On second-and-4 from the Minnesota 48, Cousins was sacked for a 7-yard loss and needed to take his remaining day trip with 19 seconds left.

Cousins accomplished a 17-yard move to Justin Jefferson to New York's 42, then spiked the ball with 4 seconds left.

Greg Joseph's career-long area aim was 56 yards.

Now, it is 61 yards, tied for Fifteenth-longest in NFL historical past. Joseph drilled the kick with room to spare to set a Vikings file.

It gave Vikings moneyline bettors one other profitable ticket (-227, guess $10 to win $14.41 whole), regardless of Minnesota solely outscoring opponents by a mixed 5 factors this season. Each different division chief with a profitable file is outscoring opponents by a minimum of 85 mixed factors.

You want that?  

Each level counts

Speak to any sports activities bettor, they usually can let you know about shedding a guess due to the hook (the half-point hooked up to most level spreads).

New England Patriots bettors who took the three.5 factors in opposition to the Cincinnati Bengals on Saturday know the sensation.

These bettors suffered by the primary half, as Cincinnati led 22-0 at halftime. However New England rallied, scoring touchdowns on consecutive possessions to chop the rating to 22-18, because the Patriots lined up for the additional level that was, as they prefer to say, vital to some.

Patriots kicker Nick Folks missed the additional level, as bettors who took the three.5 factors misplaced by the slimmest of margins.

No betting story could be full if it ended there, however extra agony awaited Patriots backers.

After a Bengals fumble, the Patriots took over on the Cincinnati 43 with simply over three minutes left. New England moved the ball and had first-and-goal from the 5-yard line with a minute to go. However New England working again Rhamondre Stevenson misplaced a fumble, which was recovered by Cincinnati defensive sort out B.J. Hill.

Steelers bettor sweats large payday

One bettor was in agony for 59 minutes of the Las Vegas Raiders-Pittsburgh Steelers recreation Saturday night time.

Las Vegas by no means trailed for 59 minutes as this bettor was on the Steelers -2.5 factors. The Raiders led 10-6 late within the fourth quarter, which meant the bettor was down 12.5-6.

Pittsburgh took over at its personal 24 with 2:55 to go. The Steelers marched down the sphere, changing a fourth and 1 from the Las Vegas 15 with 55 seconds left.

Quarterback Kenny Pickett then took benefit of Las Vegas leaving the center of the sphere open, finishing a 14-yard TD move to George Pickens with 46 seconds to go.

Chris Boswell kicked the additional level within the frigid climate (it was 14 levels on the time), making the rating 13-10.

The bettor lined (higher late than by no means, proper?). The bettor wagered $550,000 to revenue a cool $500K.


There is a Twitter account that tracks the ultimate rating of NFL video games and experiences if it is occurred earlier than.

Since professional soccer has been round since 1920, most remaining scores have been recorded.

However we had a Scorigami on Saturday within the Bengals-Patriots recreation (keep in mind, a missed further level affected issues).

No phrase but if somebody guess on that recreation ending 22-18.

One bettor did money in

However there was one bettor who was prepared to place down an honest quantity of dough on the ultimate rating of the Giants-Vikings recreation. The bettor wagered $200.64 on the Vikings to beat the Giants 27-24.

Who was happier than Cousins with the victory? This bettor, who collected a cool $10,032.

You want that!

Moneyline, unfold bettors disillusioned

Whereas Underneath (58 mixed factors) bettors had their toes up, moneyline and unfold bettors had been sweating out the end of the Independence Bowl between the Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns and Houston Cougars on Friday till Louisiana's protection forgot to play, uh, protection.

The sport was tied at 16 within the fourth quarter, giving Ragin' Cajuns bettors (+7 and +205 moneyline) some hope.

That hope shined brighter as Louisiana drove down the sphere and had first-and-goal from the Houston 9. However the Ragin' Cajuns misplaced a fumble on the 5-yard line with 8:32 to go.

The groups traded punts, and Houston took over at its 8-yard line with 2:50 to go. Then a few defensive lapses ruined the day for Ragin' Cajun moneyline bettors.

First, Louisiana allowed Houston QB Clayton Tune to run for 33 yards. After an incompletion, the Cougars bought referred to as for holding on consecutive non-plays, giving Houston first-and-30 from its 21-yard line.

Then the Louisiana secondary inexplicably allowed receiver KeSean Carter to get behind the protection for a 41-yard catch and run to the Louisiana 38.

So as to add to the agony for Louisiana moneyline bettors, Houston fumbled two performs later … however the Cougars recovered.

Louisiana didn't comprise Tune once more, as he ran for 15 yards. Tune then accomplished a 12-yard TD move to Nathaniel Dell for the go-ahead TD.

Ragin' Cajun bettors who took the factors nonetheless had hope, however that was dashed when Houston kicked the additional level. So bettors on either side who performed the factors bought the dreaded push — no person wins, so no person is blissful.

So as to add to the distress for Ragin' Cajun bettors, Louisiana took over with nice area place at its 41 however bought sacked and recovered the fumble, then threw an interception to finish the sport at 23-16.
