Under 49 Raiders-Cinci Best NFL Value Bet

The best value bet in the NFL playoffs is in game one; take under 49 points in Raiders Bengals. I love betting unders as casual bettors hammer the overs and cheer for points. This is especially true in playoff games as millions of fans lay money on the over to watch touchdowns being scored. Sports-books adjust, inflating the total so … Read More

However, this game is an exception to the rule. Why? The Cardinals are clearly the better team. They’ve got a better record and a much … Read More
