College Football: Time for a Change at Nebraska
Tony George Nov 28, 2016  
By Tony George

With numerous coaching posts opening up in College Football, there should be a few others not in the headlines. I can name a few for you. Cincinnati, Texas Tech, Arizona, Notre Dame, Missouri, UCLA, Oregon, and most notably not being talked about is once powerful Nebraska. As an alum and avid Husker fan, Mike Riley is not the answer. I have family member’s who are hardcor ...  read more

 
Are you Serious about betting the NBA? Then Read This!
Tony George Nov 19, 2016  
Courtesy of Tony George

I am using 2 different example of NBA results and line moves from Wednesday November 16th to make a point about how SERIOUS it is, especially in the NBA to get down bets early as possible. Yes, believe it or not, there are sports bettors who just like to have money on a game to make it more interesting to watch. Well I have never placed a bet personally to make ...  read more

Romo's Class Act? You bet your A--!
RJ Robbins Nov 16, 2016  
Everybody by now that follows the NFL has heard Tony Romo's wonderful speech saying that Dak Prescott has earned the right to be the starting QB of the Cowboy's. Period. He came out and said the exact thing he should have. Prescott has lead the Cowboys to 8 straight wins and a record of 8-1. The last time the Cowboys had won this many games in a roll was Tony Dorsett's rookie year in 1977, (whe ...  read more
 
One last look at Baseball 2016!
RJ Robbins Nov 10, 2016  
The 2016 World Series will go down as one of the best ever with the Cubs defeating the Indians in 7 games! With Baseball Season over lets look back and see how we did on my 2 prop plays. Detroit to win more than 82.5 games came home and won with 9 games still left to play. Texas to win more than 83 games was a cake walk and came in with 23 games left to play!

The 6 worst NFL QBs to win a Super Bowl
Mike Anthony Oct 20, 2016  
Winning the Super Bowl is the end goal of putting everything together as a team. A cohesive unit. A team built from top to bottom to create a legacy of winners and high standards for next generations to want to play for.

Too many times Super Bowl rings are automatically tossed as the final determination as for how good a QB was in their career. Is it a piece, of course it is. But let’ ...  read more

 
Huskers Prove Polls Cannot Be Trusted
Tony George Oct 20, 2016  
By Tony George

The Nebraska Cornhuskers, the team of the 90’s who won 3 National Titles under legendary coach Tom Osborne are back in the news again with a Top 8 ranking after a long absence from the college football conversation as one of the top programs in the country. Like the Alabama of today, the Huskers dominated team’s year after year in the 90’s, and when they lost talent t ...  read more

 
This Week in Sports Betting, A-Z
Doc's Sports Oct 19, 2016  
A. ATP Tour . The ATP suspended Nick Kyrgios for eight weeks after he blatantly tanked a match last week in Shanghai. Kyrgios blooped in serves and often did not run for balls in a 6-3, 6-1 second-round loss to Mischa Zverev. The 21-year-old Australian can have the ban reduced to three weeks if he enlists the help of a sports psychologist. It's safe to say he needs one.

NFL Power Rankings Week 6
Doc's Sports Oct 13, 2016  
One of the reasons being cited for the decline in football viewership this year is fans' exasperation over how convoluted the NFL's games have become. No one seems to know what a catch is, no one seems to understand how the games are officiated (or why officiating is so inconsistent), and on the whole there are a lot of average fans out there that just don't seem to be able to follow what is g ...  read more

MLB Playoffs division series
Frank Jordan Oct 6, 2016  
This MLB season has been a special one and the postseason is sure to delight. The wildcard games are over and the division series are about to kickoff. In the AL, Toronto walked off against Baltimore to set up a rematch of last year’s ALDS against Texas, but this time Texas has the home field. The other series pits Boston against Cleveland as the Red Sox face their former manager Terry Francona. N ...  read more

Are you kidding me!!
RJ Robbins Sep 30, 2016  
Well it happens to everyone of us. However last Saturday night within an hour it happened twice. Pardon me make that 3 times! Let's start with the Stanford and UCLA game. Stanford was a 3, 3.5 point favorite and UCLA was giving the Cardinal all they could handle. With less than minutes to play Stanford scores to take a 16-13 lead. On the last play UCLA QB Josh Rosen dropped back to threw a ...  read more

NFL Survivor Pool Picks and Advice: Week 3 by DOC'S SPORTS - 9/21/2016 I almost broke my own rule last week in that I was considering saving a team, in this case the Carolina Panthers, for use in my Survivor Pool down the road.

Rocketman Sports CFB Returning Starter Angle Plays Week 3
Rocketman Sports Sep 16, 2016  
RETURNING STARTER ANGLE WEEK 3 Many years ago I received a newsletter from Mike Lee, a sports handicapper who just recently passed away in the past few years. I’m not sure if he came up with this Returning starter angle or if he was just passing it along but it has really been a nice addition to my own personal handicapping arsenal. He had said in his newsletter that the previous year the an ...  read more
 
Follow the line movement
RJ Robbins Sep 15, 2016  
Last weekend let's look at two games where the line went up and down like a roller coaster. Let's start in the Colleges with Arkansas and TCU. The line started TCU around 9 to 9.5 and went down to 7 to 7.5. I put out Arkansas at plus 7.5. I was upset with myself for not pulling the trigger at 8 or 8.5. Well Saturday afternoon with a couple of hours before kick off the line rose all the way to 1 ...  read more
 
Does Sam Bradford help the Vikes win their division
Mike Anthony Sep 13, 2016  
When Minnesota pulled the itchy trigger and traded away a 1st rd and a flexible 4th round pick to the Philadelphia Eagles - many fans were left either happy, sad, shocked, or angry. It was a trade that left some shaking their heads in surprise or relief. And it left others shaking their heads and pumping their fists thinking "we have a chance!"

Teddy Bridgewater looked really good during ...  read more

 
Top 10 Things Learned from Week 1 in the NFL
Stephen Nover Sep 12, 2016  
Lots of opening week NFL story lines. Now that the Sunday results are in here are 10 things I learned:

1. Never fade Bill Belichick when he's an underdog. The Patriots are 6-1 as 'dogs the past two plus seasons. They've won all six of those games straight-up.

2. To paraphrase the late Dennis Green, "The Colts are who we thought they were and the Lions didn't let them off the hook." The ...  read more

MLB Season with a Month to Go
Frank Jordan Sep 5, 2016  
There are some races that are over such as the AL West where Texas has a 9.5 game lead, NL East where Washington has an 8.5 game lead and the NL Central where the Cubs have a 16.5 game lead. With that being said the AL East is a three team race, AL central isn’t quite locked up yet, the NL west still up for grabs, and the wildcards in both leagues have several teams fighting for the last two spots ...  read more
 
Sean Higgs NFC South Preview
Sean Higgs Sep 5, 2016  
Home of the reigning NFC Champs, the South is looking to rise again.

1. CAR PANTHERS - Have to put these guys here. The defense should be just as good, and they will continue to be hungry after almost doing the impossible last year. Cam took a huge step forward. The offense should be just as balanced and this team is a legit Super Bowl contender.

2 ATL FALCONS - Matt Ryan and frie ...  read more

 
Sean Higgs NFC West Preview
Sean Higgs Sep 5, 2016  
Sean wraps up his NFC and NFL Conference Preview with the NFC West.

1 SEA SEAHAWKS - Something just tells me they do just enough to get past Arizona. This is a very good football team. What else is there to say?

2 ARZ CARDINALS - We will find out nice and early how good these guys will be. I think they should battle with Seattle for the division title. Game 1 vs Patriots. I know ...  read more

 
Sean Higgs NFC East Preview
Sean Higgs Sep 5, 2016  
Let's get started with the NFC today!

1 WAS REDSKINS - Can't believe these guys are +300 to win the division. They won it last year. Total disrespect. Cousins isn't a sexy QB, but he fits Gruden's system well. The WRs are top notch. The defense is solid. Too many flaws in the other clubs.

2 NY GIANTS - Eli to ODB will put up plenty of points. But the OL has holes and I am not sold ...  read more

 
Sean Higgs NFC North Preview
Sean Higgs Sep 5, 2016  
Sean is heading to the North with this NFC Preview

1 GB PACKERS - Aaron Rodgers has Jordy Nelson back at WR and that will be a huge lift offensively. But the leaner looking Eddie Lacy might be a major factor if GB is to contend for a spot in the Conference Championship. Can't ever count out a team with a healthy Rodgers and an improved defense.

2 MIN VIKINGS - Thought for sure th ...  read more

 
Sean Higgs AFC East Preview
Sean Higgs Sep 3, 2016  
September means the arrival of the NFL regular season. Sean will start with in the AFC East.

1 NE PATRIOTS - How can you go against a team that has won the division 7 straight years and 12 of the last 13 years. I think they could have dropped the game in Arizona with Brady. But I don't see them going 0-4 without him.

2 NY JETS - FitzMagic is back. This is a veteran offense that has ...  read more

 
Sean Higgs AFC North Preview
Sean Higgs Sep 3, 2016  
Higgs is heading to the AFC North in today's preview.

1 CINCY BENGALS - I have had these guys at the top for the last couple years and thought they could break through to a Super Bowl. I think HC Lewis is on the hot seat. This is a talented group. They need to break through sometime. 12 wins last year and a meltdown in the playoffs.

2 PITT STEELERS - High hopes in the Steel City. I ...  read more

 
Sean Higgs AFC South Preview
Sean Higgs Sep 3, 2016  
Heading to the AFC South where the young QBs come out to play.

1. IND COLTS - Have to put them here simply because of a healthy Luck. They finally seemed to get it that he needs an OL to keep him upright. Guy isn't made of steel and can't get hit to the ground 15 times a game. 2 years ago he tossed 40 TDs. TY Hilton and Donte Moncrief are nice WRs. Gore is a guy who never quits in the RB ...  read more

 
Sean Higgs AFC West Preview
Sean Higgs Sep 3, 2016  
Sean wraps up his first look at the AFC with his AFC West thoughts.

1 KC CHIEFS - I'll take the Andy Reid bunch here. They have a solid QB, rush attack. A solid TE. The defense gets pressure. Not much not to like. Andy Reid gets a bum wrap for his time in Philly. But the guy gets the most out of teams. They win. A lot. 2 DEN BRONCOS - I can't put the defending champs at the top. Not ...  read more

 
Sean Higgs CFB Team Total Best Bets
Sean Higgs Sep 1, 2016  
Wrapped up my College Football Podcast today and added these from the show.

LSU Tigers - OVER 9.5 . This is a very talented team. I think they can challenge 'Bama for the SEC Title. If they do that, a 10 win season is guaranteed.

Ole Miss - UNDER 7.5. I know a lot of people are high on them since they recruit well and have a veteran QB under center. But this team had 3 first round pi ...  read more

Western Michigan vs. Northwestern Betting Preview
Scott Spreitzer Sep 1, 2016  
Western Michigan +5 at Northwestern Western Michigan is a popular pick in week one among many professional handicapping experts this week. I will not be playing it. I like Western Michigan’s experience returning on offense and PJ Fleck has done a great job recruiting, #1 in the MAC. However, I’m not ready for them to beat Northwestern who still has enough returning, and arguably another great ...  read more
 
Don't Count Out Vikings
Stephen Nover Aug 31, 2016  
Anybody writing off the Minnesota Vikings because they lost Teddy Bridgewater for the season is making a mistake. Unlike most NFL teams, the Vikings are ground-oriented. Their MVP is Adrian Peterson not their quarterback. Peterson led the NFL in rushing last season. He's a top-four runner again this season, one of only three franchise running backs with the others being Todd Gurley and Ezekiel ...  read more
 
NCAA Football Predictions: Week 1 Opening Line Report and Picks

Thank you College Football Playoff and ESPN! It used to be that Week 1 of the college football season was cupcake city. But now?

Romo's Last Stand?

Whats next for Cam Newton
Tony Karpinski Aug 16, 2016  
Cam didn’t play how he would have wanted to in the Super Bowl, passing only 18-41, a pitiful 55.4 QB rating, and being out schemed by Defensive Coordinator Wade Phillips while his squad frustrated him over and over. Denver, in a lot of ways may have shown the rest of the NFL how to beat Cam and his specific skill set. The NFL, more than many other sports, copy and learn from each other. This could ...  read more
 
Tony George - Big 12 Preview and Power Ratings
Tony George Aug 16, 2016  
Tony George’s Big 12 POWER RATINGS / RANKINGS

1. Oklahoma – 92

Loaded at skill positions, best QB in the Conference, best RB in the Conference. Quite possibly a Final 4 team. Opener at Houston is tricky early on, also having Ohio State in Norman early (3rd game ) is going to test this talented team. If they clear those hurdles and sky is the limit if the QB stays healthy because ...  read more

 
Football Handicapping 101

I am going to show you how to become a winner this football season. This will put you in the 2% Club. What’s the 2% Club you ask? That’s the percentage of bettors that actually made money by season’s end. Why do you think more and more off shore sportsbooks keep opening at the beginning of football every year? It’s because 98% of all sports bettors end up losers in the end. When you are finished r ...  read more

Baseball Trading Deadline Winners- Cubs & Indians!
RJ Robbins Jul 31, 2016  
Last week the Cubs traded for lefty Aroldis Chapman from the NY Yankess. That broke up what was considered to be the top bull pen in the majors in Dellin Betances, Andrew Miller and Chapman. The Cubs weren't exactly hurting when it came to their bullpen. Closer Hector Rondon was and still is having a great year with a record of 1-2, with 18 saves and a ERA under 2.00!

NFL Odds: Analyzing Cincinnati Bengals 2016 Home Schedule
Doc's Sports Jul 21, 2016  
I truly believe that Coach Marvin Lewis had his best Bengals team yet in 2015 until quarterback Andy Dalton, who was having a career year, suffered a season-ending thumb injury in the first half of Cincinnati's Week 14 home game versus Pittsburgh. Dalton broke his thumb making a tackle after throwing a pick. (When will quarterbacks learn to just crawl into a shell and hide when throwing picks? ...  read more
 
Los Angeles Rams Under 7 1/2 Wins
Stephen Nover Jul 21, 2016  
It has taken 22 years, but Los Angeles has the Rams back. They can have them. My strongest over/under NFL regular-season win total recommendation is Rams Under 7 1/2 victories. Todd Gurley and a strong defensive line can't cover up all the other Rams' weaknesses.

Stephen Nover Jul 15, 2016  
The NFC East is wide open. The Cowboys, Giants and Redskins are all plus $2.00 to win the division with the Eagles at plus $2.85, according to current odds at thegreek.com. This is a very flawed division. But I believe the Giants are the best of a bad lot. Tom Coughlin damaged his Hall of Fame chances by hanging around too long. The Giants haven't made the playoffs the past four seasons. The ...  read more
 
AFC WEST (UNDER THE RADAR)CHAMPION
Kevin Thomas Jul 13, 2016  
With the Bronco's losing Peyton Manning to retirement and Osweiler moving on the Bronco's will rely on M Sanchez or rookie P Lynch. The defense will be dominate again, but without offense you can only get so far. The Chargers are predicted to be last and with the troubles and amount of injuries this team always has on offense this could come true. Age is going to be a factor once ag ...  read more

All-Star Game Suggestion
Stephen Nover Jul 11, 2016  
Instead of giving the league that wins the All-Star Game home-field advantage in the World Series, the rule should be changed. Home-field advantage in the World Series should go to the league whose team finished with the best record. The Baseball All-Star Game still is the best of the major sports' All-Star games. But it started to lose its luster once Pete Rose played in his final All-Sta ...  read more

East Division Ohio State Buckeyes (+145): Everyone see the strange occurrence with the Ohio State posted win total being only 8½ but they are the betting favorites to win the conference again this season. The odds makers expect to see three losses by the Buckeyes this season. Amazingly three losses would be one more regular season loss than Coach Urban Meyer has had during his four years at Col ...  read more
 
Baseball at the 1/2 mark in the AL!
RJ Robbins Jun 30, 2016  
The Texas Rangers are playing the best baseball with a record of 51-28. The Rangers have struck gold so far with FA Center fielder Ian Desmond who is hitting .322 with 14 HR's and 51 RBI. Rookie of the year candidate Nomar Mazara is hitting .287 with 11 HR's and 35 RBI. Both players are playing superb defense! Cole Hamels is the Ace of the Rangers going 9-1 with a 2.60 ERA!

The King and his Court make History!
RJ Robbins Jun 21, 2016  
By now you have heard all the experts explain why Cleveland won the NBA Championship or why Golden St. lost it. Trying to convince someone their opinion is the right side is like trying to change someone's mind about there politics! Not going to happen! King James did put Cleveland on his shoulders and brought them back from being down 3 games to 1! Personally I went 14-9, hitting 61% of my se ...  read more
 
Baseball Shouldn't Suspend Machado
Stephen Nover Jun 8, 2016  
Major League baseball shouldn't suspend Manny Machado for punching out Yordano Ventura last night. They should honor Machado instead. This is just the hard-throwing 25-year-old Ventura's third full year in the majors and already he's established himself as a classless punk, despised in many cities, including Oakland, Anaheim, Chicago and Baltimore. Ventura was out to get Machado. That was ...  read more

Joe Madden is pushing all the right buttons while Jake Arrieta is proving he is the best pitcher in Baseball going 9-0 with a 1.56 ERA. Newly acquired Ben Zobrist is leading the Cubs in hitting .345 BA with a .445 OBP. The Nats ...  read more

Stay away from Cincinnati Reds
Stephen Nover May 28, 2016  
The Big Red Machine these 2016 Cincinnati Reds are not. My advice: Stay away ... far away. I tried to make John Lamb work. Two starts later I've learned my lesson, a costly lesson at that as Lamb gave up nine earned runs in 9 2/3 innings on 13 hits and six walks. He's back on the fantasy baseball waiver wire where I should have left him. Raisel Iglesias is promising, but he's on the DL with ...  read more

Most Underrated Pitcher
Stephen Nover May 20, 2016  
There are only four pitchers who have an unbeaten record this season when having at least five victories. The first three are somewhat easy to name - Chris Sale, Jake Arrieta and Stephen Strasburg. The fourth one is my candidate for most underrated, under-the-radar starter: Cleveland's Josh Tomlin. Tomlin is 6-0 this season. The Indians have won all seven of his starts. Tomlin's ERA is ...  read more
 
THE PLAYERS Championship Preview
Doc's Sports May 11, 2016  
Golf is a crazy game at times as typically, hot players stay hot and cold players stay cold which is usually a big factor in trying to predict tournament winners.

He was such an underdog that he was one of six players tha ...  read more
 
Betting Baseball Dogs
TJ Masterline May 6, 2016  
Many square gambers tend to play the favorites more often than they bet on an underdog in baseball. The average baseball gambler sees the team that is supposed to win and looks at the other team as the one who is supposed to lose. Losing is no fun so it’s tough for some players to realize it can be profitable to lose more games than you win as long as your return on each bet is greater than your ...  read more
 
Back the Miami Heat to make it to the NBA Eastern Conference Finals
Mike Lundin May 3, 2016  
The Miami Heat are paying roughly +140 to make it past the Toronto Raptors in their Eastern Conference Semifinals, and I see plenty of reasons to back the Heat. Miami has the more experienced team while Toronto won its first playoffs series in 15 years when they made it past Indiana in the first round. It's very concerning that they struggled that much with the Pacers, and while Miami hardly i ...  read more

In Sports there is a stat and a number for everything. We apply it in handicapping in hopes of beating the spread, side or total.

There are different variables that people look at when handicapping a game. Let's face you can be on the ...  read more
 
Best Player in the 2016 NFL Draft is ...
Stephen Nover Apr 24, 2016  
Both the Rams and Eagles traded up so they will be picking first and second in the NFL draft this year. Unless something unforeseen happens, I doubt either team selects the best player in the draft. I have St. Louis and Philadelphia each taking a quarterback with the Rams going for Jared Goff and the Eagles selecting Carson Wentz. Neither of those players is among the top two players in my view ...  read more
 
Eagles Likely to Crash and Burn
Stephen Nover Apr 21, 2016  
The Philadelphia Eagles have been relatively quiet since firing Chip Kelly before the end of his third season with them. The turbulence and controversy hasn't stopped, though. The Eagles just moved up to No. 2 in the draft by giving up their No. 1, No. 3 and No. 4 draft choices this season plus their No. 1 and No. 2 draft picks next year to the Browns to move up six spots in the draft plus get ...  read more
 
UNLV, Chris Beard Mess
Stephen Nover Apr 17, 2016  
Put off hiring a college basketball coach for a week and make a million dollars. That's a formula UNLV accidentally stumbled upon with Chris Beard. Beard is one of those slimy Bobby Petrinoish kind of coaches whose word doesn't mean anything. UNLV looks bad on this, but Beard shouldn't emerge from this fiasco untainted. Beard gets his dream job of coaching Texas Tech - unless the Washington ...  read more

AL EAST

Tampa Bay Rays OVER 78 -- Rays added a couple bats over the winter. The pitching is always the strength of this team. They won 80 games last year with a terrible offense. They didn't bring in big name, sexy bats. But they have enough to get us this over.

Sean's Top MLB Rotations for 2016
Sean Higgs Mar 31, 2016  
I touched a few days ago on who and why I thought were the 5 worse rotations. Today, I look at the other end and focus on who my best rotations are.

1. NEW YORK METS - I'm a Yankees fan, so it pains me to type this. But the Mets, with Harvey, DeGrom and Syndergaard at the top, followed by Matz and Colon/Wheeler rounding out the staff. Wow. We have some hard throwing, strike out tossing arms. ...  read more

 
Detroit Tigers Over 82.5 Wins -1.35
RJ Robbins Mar 31, 2016  
The best thing about the 2015 season for the Tigers is the season is over and in the rear view mirror. The 74 wins is the low point. Before last year the Tigers were averaging 91 victories a year from 2011 to 2014. The fate of the Tigers goes back to pitcher Justin Verlander. Last year Justin was just 5-8 with a decent era of 3.28. Arm injuries have held back the former Cy Young & MVP. From ...  read more
 
MLB Underdog Betting
Brian Hay Mar 31, 2016  
The key to having a winning baseball season is finding value in the money line offered by the sportsbook and taking advantage of it. Value is simply the difference between the price being offered and the true chances of a team winning the game. I concentrate on finding value with underdogs. Amateur bettors just can’t comprehend it is possible to be profitable when losing more games than you win. T ...  read more

Jeff's Top 5 MLB Bullpens in 2016


1) New York Yankees

Aroldis Chapman and his 100 MPH fastball will have sit out the first 30 games. But, make no mistake, this bullpen has the talent and depth to withstand his absence. Lets start with Dellin Betances, who was ranked 5th in all of baseball with 29 holds last season. When I watch him pitch, I say to myself how ...  read more
 
WHY SO MUCH ATTENTION ON DRAFTING A QUARTERBACK

Texas Rangers Over 83 Wins -1.30

However before the Play offs started they were finishing off an outstanding season by winning the AL Western Division. After a terrible start and a bunch of injuries, first year Manager Jeff Bannister kept the Rangers focus. At the All-Star Break there were 42-46, while the LA Angeles were 4 ...  read more

Sean Higgs' MLB Pitching Rotation notes
Sean Higgs Mar 26, 2016  
With MLB right around the corner, let me take a look at what I think are the 5 worse pitching staffs in baseball.

1 - ATLANTA BRAVES. Clearly in a rebuilding mode. They are led by JULIO TEHERAN. The kid is a solid 200 inning performer. Any other team, he would probably win 15-18 games. He is followed by MATT WISLER. He wasn't terrible after his June call up. But there will be more bumps over ...  read more

It's nothing short of a miracle that we still find Leicester City top of the Premier League table with eight fixtures to go, but here we are.

The Rays should be able to squeak out tighter games especially at home this season. They lost a bunch of 1-run tilts last season. The Rays were just 42-42 at home last season and should be much better at Tropicana Field this year. Their pitching looks strong an ...  read more

How To Make Money on NASCAR Restrictor Plate Races

So the advantage comes in playing the matchups, and underdogs. Just yesterday I had Xfinity Mo ...  read more

Chase Diamond Feb 1, 2016  
I love to bet on Two props in the Super Bowl I know there are guys out there who bet everything down to the coin toss. The first thing I love to look at is the MVP prop. Now there is no money to bet the obvious MVP Cam Newton at -130 there is no money to be made. Personally and I know it's rare but Luke Kuechly has tremendous value at +1400 it is not out of the range of the range of chance that th ...  read more

Some of the most popular ones are the over/under on the National Anthem, the coin toss, whether someone cries, will there be a safety, who will score the first TD, and totals on individual player yardage. Pertaining to the game, most of the prop bets are ...  read more
 
NFL All Star Games Pro or Con
RJ Robbins Jan 25, 2016  
Is it time to get rid of the NFL Pro Bowl? Voting has turned into a popularity contest. You have 2 X-NFL players choosing up teams. Was moving the game the week before the Super Bowl a mistake? The game itself has turned into a gloried 'touch pass' game. The players really don't want to be there, mainly due to the chance of an injury. If they are on the Super Bowl teams they d ...  read more

2016 Super Bowl Predictions
Doc's Sports Jan 18, 2016  
by Doc's Sports - 1/18/2016 It sure hasn't been a year for long shot bettors or value seekers. The four lowest-priced teams in the Super Bowl futures market last week all won their games. We have Championship games involving the top two seeds in both conferences. No Cinderella stories this year.

Packers Need New Leadership
Stephen Nover Jan 17, 2016  
Not too many quarterbacks are capable of winning a Super Bowl without a dominant defense. Aaron Rodgers is. Yet, for the sixth time in seven years, the Packers aren't going to the Super Bowl. Only once during this span have the Packers even won two playoff games in a season - the year they did win the Super Bowl, 2010. Yes, luck is involved. So is superior coaching and aggressive moves by the f ...  read more
 
College Basketball's Home Court Dynamics
Jim Feist Jan 12, 2016  
by Jim Feist

All basketball are not created equal! At least that's the impression you get when examining how teams play at home compared to on the road. A few years ago, Michigan State outscored teams by a 73-58 average at home, but on the road the Spartans were outscored by a 69-65 count. The same was true for Minnesota: The Gophers average score at home was 81-67, but on the road ...  read more

NBA Trends: Fading Tired Home Teams
World Wide Sports Jan 7, 2016  
Posted by World Wide Sports.

One of the more common betting strategies discussed by NBA bettors involves the role of fatigue — specifically the impact of playing in back-to-back games. Many bettors believe that oddsmakers overvalue the significance of playing on consecutive nights, while others claim that back-to-back games are only detrimental to a team if they’re playing on the road d ...  read more

Seahawks-Vikings Weather
Stephen Nover Jan 7, 2016  
I remember the great Minnesota Vikings teams of Bud Grant with their "Purple People Eaters" defense. The Vikings played their games outdoors back then. I can still clearly recall bruising fullback Bill Brown with his crewcut and short sleeves in zero degree weather. The Vikings are back playing outdoors, at least temporarily, and this adds a serious element of randomness to their Sunday aftern ...  read more

AC's Preview of the 2016 NFL Playoffs
AC Dinero Jan 5, 2016  
NFL Playoff Analysis Here is a synopsis of each team in the 2016 NFL Playoffs AFC 1) Denver: The Broncos certainly have the defense to win the super bowl. The question is at QB: will it be Peyton Manning or Brock Oswieller. My guess it’s Manning since he came off the bench to replace a struggling Oswieller. But Manning has had his struggles as well. They’ve also had problems along the offen ...  read more

Could NFL be dead in 10 years?
Stephen Nover Jan 5, 2016  
In 10 years - perhaps less - professional football will be out of business as we know it today. Those are scary and mind-boggling words.

He cites four main reasons for having these views. They are: Concussions: Co ...  read more
