Football Betting: Best Lines this weekend

October 3, 2008

In NCAA College Football on Saturday night, the No. 23 Oregon Ducks visit the No. 9 Southern California Trojans in a battle of Pac-10 rivals at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum (8 pm ET, ABC).

Oddsmakers are expecting the Trojans to bounce back from their upset loss to Oregon State last week, and have made the Trojans 16-point favorites. Bettors will find most sportsbooks are sticking to the 16-point spread, but Sportsbooks is offering the lowest juice, -105.

USC, then ranked No. 1, was upset 27-21 by Oregon State Beavers last week, as 24-point favorites. The 48 points fell under the total of 55.

Oregon Ducks are 4-1 SU and 3-2 ATS. USC is 2-1 SU and ATS.

In the NFL, The Seattle Seahawks visit the New York Giants on Sunday at Giants Stadium (1 pm ET, FOX).

Nearly every sportsbook opened the Giants as 7-point favorites and the line hadn’t moved as of Friday, but bettors will find the best juice – by far – at Bet Jamaica, which is offering the Giants at +100 on the 7-point spread. All other books are -110 or -105.

Moneyline bettors will get the best price (-300) on the Giants at BetUS, with every other sportsbook at -320 or more. Those taking the underdog Seahawks will get the best odds (+270) at Bet Jamaica.

The over/under total of 43.5 is consistent at every book.

New York (3-0 SU, 2-1 ATS) has won three straight. Seattle is 1-2 SU and ATS.

The Pittsburgh Steelers face the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday Night Football at Jacksonville Municipal Stadium (8:15 pm ET, NBC).

The Jags are 4-point favorites, and NFL bettors will find the lowest juice at Sportsbooks, which is offering -105 on the spread.

Sportsbooks and BetUS have the best moneyline odds for Jacksonville, at -210. Most other books have the Jaguars at -220. The best moneyline price on the underdog Steelers is +180 at Bodog.

Under bettors will find the highest total (36.5) at BetUS.

Pittsburgh is 3-1 SU and 1-3 ATS. Jacksonville is 2-2 SU and 1-3 ATS and has won two straight.
