What’s on the table today?: Monday Night Football & Game 3 of the ALCS (betting preview)
What a great time to be a sports fan. The NFL is in high gear, the MLB Playoffs are simply stunning, NHL hockey saw it’s puck drop last week, and on Tuesday night the NBA season tips off.
In today’s column we’re looking at tonight’s offerings in the NFL (Monday Night Football / Bills @ Titans) and MLB Playoffs (ALCS / Houston @ Boston), with lines, odds, and my predictions on both games.
Tomorrow, we’ll begin to look at the NBA season and ask: “Why aren’t we giving the Bucks more respect” as Milwaukee is being favored by NO-ONE in the national media (seemingly) to repeat.
MLB Playoffs: ALCS
- Astros +1.5 @ Redsox -1.5 / total runs 9
- Astros moneyline +100
- Redsox moneyline -120
- The OVER is 5-0 in each of the last 5 for both Boston and Houston. Take the OVER 9 runs
NFL: Monday Night Football
- Bills -6 @ Titans +6 / total 53.5
- Bills moneyline -250
- Titans moneyline +210
- The OVER is hitting for both the Bills and the Titans with Buffalo going OVER in each of their 5 games after accumulating more than 350 total yards in their previous game, and the Titans going OVER in their last 5 games following a straight up win of more than 14 points.
I like the OVER 53.5 in this one.
