Welcome to rivalry weekend, NFL-style. With the regular season down to its final month, the NFL slate this weekend features a number of key divisional matchups. Some of them involve teams from the same state. There’s the battle of New York between the Buffalo Bills and the New York Jets. There’s the battle of Ohio between the Cleveland Browns and Cincinnati Bengals. Even the Lone Star State is getting in on the action, Cowboys-Texans. And with DraftKings and BetRivers this weekend making big offers, you’ll have even more adrenaline pumping.
That’s an aberration, though, on a weekend loaded with divisional showdowns. Among them, Eagles at Giants, Vikings at Lions, Ravens at Steelers and Chiefs at Broncos. And there’s one other key rivalry this weekend as well – the annual college football spectacle between Army and Navy on Saturday in Philadelphia.
As usual, legal and licensed sportsbooks have you covered with lots of specials and other unique wagers. Here’s a rundown of what to look for this week.
BetRivers: College Football
Navy is a 2.5-point favorite over Army, which is a +125 underdog at BetRivers. Both teams have recently been very good against the spread – the Midshipmen have covered three straight all against quality opponents (Cincinnati, Notre Dame and UCF) while the Black Knights have covered five straight against a far weaker slate featuring the likes of Troy, Massachusetts and Louisiana-Monroe.

BetRivers is offering a number of combination wagers involving the point spread and total, such as +250 on Navy covering and the game staying under the total of 32.5, and +240 on the Midshipmen covering and the game going over the total. The combo with the most value involves the moneyline. You can get +285 on Army pulling the upset and the game staying under the total.

DraftKings And BetRivers This Weekend: Golf
Tiger Woods is scheduled to be back in action Saturday night. It will be his first time since July. He and Rory McIlroy take on Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas in the 2022 edition of The Match. It’s a 12-hole best-ball, match play exhibition held under the lights at Pelican Golf Club in Belleair, Fla. BetRivers is offering +1200 odds on any player to make a hole-in-one.
DraftKings allows bettors to get even more specific, with +6000 odds on any of the players recording an ace. And you can drill that down even further. There are +13000 odds on a specific player recording a hole-in-one on a specific hole – No. 5 or No. 8. Perhaps a more realistic wager is Wood and McIlroy recording birdie or better on hole No. 2, which carries odds of +150. Tiger and Rory are also +320 at DK to win the first hole, compared to +300 for Spieth and Thomas.
