🏈 THURSDAY NIGHT LIGHTS: A shrinking line at Foxboro

🔥 IF I HAD $100 FREE BETS: How to wager on USA-Netherlands

💪 POWER HOUR: A Free Bet drop for TNF!

🚀 HUSTLE BOOST: Josh Allen + USA = +250

THURSDAY NIGHT LIGHTS

Bills (-3.5) @ Patriots

KICKOFF: 8:15 p.m. ET

KEY STATS: The line has shrunk from 5.5 even though Buffalo has owned New England’s defense: The Bills have punted zero times 🥚 in their last two meetings. Josh Allen has slipped to +1100 for MVP thanks to interceptions and elbow concerns. Buffalo will be without LB Von Miller (knee), while the Patriots ruled out RB Damien Harris (thigh).

TRENDING: Buffalo is 5-2-1 ATS in the last eight meetings. The Under has hit in six straight Bills road games.

EXPERT PICKS

NBC lead betting analyst Jay Croucher and PointsBet senior editor Teddy Greenstein went a combined 3-1 on Monday Night Football. Here are their TNF and best college selections.

THE BOOK

Patriots +3.5 over Bills (-107)
"Buffalo is still dealing with significant injuries, and Mac Jones quietly came back to life on Thanksgiving."
SEC title game (Atlanta): Georgia-LSU Over 52.5 (-110)
“The Over is 7-2 in their last nine meetings, and this one will be on a fast track.”

THE BETTOR

Patriots 1H +0.5 (+115)
“Belichick crushes it after losses. And in a low-scoring game, a half-point edge looks good over two quarters.”
Big Ten title game (Indianapolis): Michigan -17 vs. Purdue (-110)
“We’ll risk the post-Buckeyes letdown on a Michigan team surging with confidence and big-play potential.”

DE-FENCE

IF I HAD $100 FREE BETS …

Matt Turner has been a stud in net for the U.S. and this better not jinx him! (AP Photo)

From noted capper Jon Eimer (@BucketJonBets on Twitter):

[$75] Under 2.5 goals -160: This is the knockout stage. No one wants to concede first. Netherlands is riddled with world-class defense, and the U.S. has allowed only one goal with Matt Turner between the sticks.

[$25] Cody Mathes Gakpo ATGS +250: How can you bet against something that has happened every single game of group stage? Cody is showing the world he is destined for a big club.

WHO DO YOU LOVE?

WORLD CUP WINNER

Brazil (+225): The pre-tournament favorites hope to get Neymar (ankle) healthy.

France (+500): The French treated their 1-0 loss to Tunisia like a cooking challenge from Scotland – best to be ignored.

Argentina (+500): Stunning loss to Saudi Arabia seems like a long time ago.

Spain (+600): Yielded to Japan 2-1 🤯 but advanced to knockout stage.

England (+850): Showed serious pop by scoring nine goals in Group B play – though none against the Stars ‘n’ Stripes.

Portugal (+1000): Sorry, Ronaldo, no goal – even if PointsBet paid it out for our clients.

USA (+10000): Obligated to include 🤷🏻.

DON'T BE OFFSIDE

⚽ BETTING ALERT

The knockout stage signals the end for draws. But not for betting Draws. Allow us to explain using USA-Netherlands (10 a.m. ET Saturday) as an example:

  • MATCH RESULT
  • Netherlands -106
  • Draw +220
  • USA +335

This is for regulation time. If the game goes to extra time or a shootout, the Draw bettors get paid regardless of the result.

  • TO QUALIFY FOR THE QUARTERFINALS
  • Netherlands -225
  • USA +185

This is the straightforward option. Doesn’t matter how the team wins.

  • DOUBLE CHANCE
  • Netherlands or Draw -450
  • Netherlands or USA -275
  • USA or Draw -115

USA or Draw will be immensely popular because it covers everything but a regulation loss.

Which player will host Tiger Woods fist-bump on Sunday? Here are LIVE ODDS AS OF 3:20 P.M. ET:

Xander Schauffele (+450): Finished inside the top 10 in five of his last seven PGA Tour events.

Jon Rahm (+750): Won the 2019 event and finished second the following year.

Justin Thomas (+900): JT crushes limited-field, no-cut events. And now there’s a Mrs. Thomas to support.

Scottie Scheffler (+1000): Runner-up in ’21 to Viktor Hovland.

Tony Finau (+1100): He has won four times in his last 32 starts. Bad in baseball, great in golf.
