Some teams hopeful for a Super Bowl run will face each other this weekend.

If you want to bet on NFL games, here are online sports betting insights for the Minnesota Vikings playing the Buffalo Bills and the Los Angeles Chargers taking on the San Francisco 49ers, as well as Alabama facing off with Ole Miss in college football.

NFL

Minnesota Vikings vs. Buffalo Bills

Sunday, Nov. 13 | TV: FOX | 1 p.m. ET

The status of one of the MVP favorites looms over this matchup. Still, the Bills are football betting favorites at -3.5.

Bills quarterback Josh Allen is dealing with an elbow injury, and it’s unclear as of Thursday, Nov. 10, whether he’ll play. He’s top five in the league in passing yards (2,403) and touchdowns (19). He also leads the Bills (6-2) with 392 rushing yards on 62 attempts.

The Kirk Cousins-led Vikings (7-1) also have an impressive offense. Justin Jefferson is second in the NFL with 867 receiving yards and fourth with 59 catches.

Los Angeles Chargers vs. San Francisco 49ers

Sunday, Nov. 13 | TV: NBC | 8:20 p.m. ET

The Chargers (5-3) and 49ers (4-4) are two teams aiming for improvement in the second half of the season and could be in danger of slipping out of the playoff picture. The 49ers are NFL betting favorites at -7 at home.

Despite his injury and the absence of some of his team’s best weapons, Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert has helped his team to a winning record. He’s fifth in the NFL with 2,254 passing yards and tied for ninth with 13 touchdowns.

The 49ers, who had a bye last week, have been energized by their trade for running back Christian McCaffrey. In two games, he has 132 rushing yards and two touchdowns on 26 carries to go with 79 yards and a touchdown on 10 receptions.

College Football

Alabama Crimson Tide vs. Ole Miss Rebels

Saturday, Nov. 12 | TV: CBS | 3:30 p.m. ET

In this clash between two top-15 SEC teams, No. 9-ranked Alabama is a college football odds favorite (-450) over No. 11 Ole Miss.

Last year’s Heisman Trophy winner, Bryce Young, leads the Crimson Tide with 2,234 yards, 19 touchdowns and four interceptions on a 62.9% completion percentage.

Alabama has lost two of its last three games but is still top 20 in points scored (41.8 per game) and allowed (18.3 per game) as well as offensive yards gained (482.9 per game) and defensive yards allowed (303.6 per game) in the country.

Ole Miss has suffered just one loss this season, at LSU on Oct. 22. Rebels quarterback Jaxson Dart has 1,911 yards, 14 touchdowns and seven picks through the air on a 61.1% completion rate. 

But Ole Miss, which is 11th in the nation with 494.9 yards gained per game, is balanced. Running back Quinshon Judkins has 1,036 yards on 180 rushes.
