LAS VEGAS - The Sports Betting Equinox refers to a day in which all four major American sports have games, a rare occurrence. On Thursday, the first one of the year occurs and more are expected until the MLB season concludes.

NFL - Denver Broncos vs. Cleveland Browns Odds

  • Denver Broncos +1.5 (-110)
  • Cleveland Browns -1.5 (-110)

The Cleveland Browns will host the Denver Broncos on Thursday Night Football, broadcast on NFL Network, Fox and Amazon Prime.

The Browns are 1.5-point NFL favorites despite being without QB Baker Mayfield, RB Kareem Hunt, RB Nick Chubb, OL Jedrick Wills, OL Jack Conklin, and potentially WR Odell Beckham Jr.

The Broncos are on a skid of three games after starting out 3-0. QB Teddy Bridgewater has passed for more than 230 yards in five of their six games, with the only exception being a game in which he was concussed.

With this, online gambling sites list Bridgewater's TNF passing prop total at 235.5 yards (-110).

MLB - Atlanta Braves vs. Los Angeles Dodgers Odds

  • Atlanta Braves +122
  • Los Angeles Dodgers -145

The Atlanta Braves have taken a commanding 3-1 lead over the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NLCS, but every Atlanta sports fan knows not to count their chickens just yet.

The Braves are underdogs on Thursday but hold a -440 cost for the NLCS odds. Still, they have been dogs the whole time as the Dodgers have been projected to be the best team in baseball all year.

NBA - Los Angeles Clippers vs. Golden State Warriors Odds

  • Los Angeles Clippers +3.5 (-115)
  • Golden State Warriors -3.5 (-105)

The Golden State Warriors took the Los Angeles Lakers down on the NBA’s opening night, and now they’ll look to stake their claim to being the best team in California with a win over the Los Angeles Clippers.

This will be the Clippers’ first game of the season, and the Warriors are slight favorites, potentially due to their victory over the Lakers.

The Warriors have the third shortest odds to win the NBA Finals at +900, while the Clippers are not far behind at +1600.

NHL - Colorado Avalanche vs. Florida Panthers Odds

  • Colorado Avalanche -105
  • Florida Panthers -115

Two of the very best teams in the NHL will be going head to head, and the moneyline odds reflect just how evenly matched they are.

The Carolina Panthers finished the 2020-21 season with a 35-26-8 record, while the Colorado Avalanche ended at 42-20-8. Both teams are in the Stanley Cup conversation in 2021.

The Avs have +600 odds to win the Stanley Cup - the shortest in the league - while the Panthers sit at +1600.
