How to Flip A Football Field

stafford

Week four in the NFL season is underway with only two games that have a touchdown or higher spread.  There should be some high scoring affairs like the Colts and Jaguars in London (9:30 AM ET) and the Saints in San Diego taking on the Chargers.  If you like defense (or terrible offense) the Seahawks travel to NY (actually NJ) to take on the Jets and the Titans will be in Houston to take on a JJ Watt-less Texans.

Are you ready for some football?

The 2016 NFL season is just about to kick off, and to ready ourselves for another crazy year, we’re going to take a look at the three teams Bovada pegs as Super Bowl favorites, along with a couple of savvy dark-horse candidates for good measure.

The New York Jets have been the butt of many jokes for almost half a century.  They have not won a Super Bowl since Joe Namath famously guaranteed a win in 1968.  At this moment, Geno Smith is penciled in as their starting quarterback as they have yet to sign free agent QB (and last year’s starter) Ryan Fitzpatrick.  A quick look at the Super Bowl odds shows the Jets a 40 to 1 longshot to win Super Bowl LI.  Could they defy the odds and win it all?

New England Patriots v New York Jets

While Patriots QB Tom Brady was able to avoid a suspension last season (making him a scoop in Fanstasy Football leagues in the process), New England wasn’t so lucky this year as “Deflategate” came back to haunt them.  Brady will miss the first four weeks of the 2016-2017 NFL season, but Vegas doesn’t seem to mind.  NFL odds makers still favor the New England Patriots over all other teams as they sit at a 15 to 2 favorite to win Super Bowl LI.  You’d think losing a franchise quarterback for 1/4 of the regular season would diminish a team’s odds of winning it all, but there are several reasons why the Patriots are still the team to beat.

Even though the sale of alcohol at college football games sounds like a very bad idea, it is obvious that college students are already too intoxicated. Consuming too much alcohol can result in shootings, stabbings, fights, drunk driving, altercations, injuries, and arrests for public intoxication. Statistically,College Football Lines indicate that such instances rarely happen during game days because of the heavy presence of police officers who sometimes ignore minor infractions, for example, public intoxication.

John Burt, a freshman wide receiver at the University of Texas doesn’t know why five current or former FBS receivers or defensive backs decided to run the 110-meter hurdles at the NCAA Division I men’s track and field championships this week. While their decision to participate in the event won’t have an effect on college football betting lines, an injury could ruin their seasons.

According to Burt, most college receivers and defensive backs that decide to participate in track and field usually run the 100m dash, so he is surprised they have started running the 110m hurdle, especially since they don’t do a lot of hurdling in football. Read the rest of this entry »

Could you imagine that the sports that you play could make you a millionaire? Sports were once something you do to relax, have a rest from a daily routine. It was never considered a serious job. Let us take a closer look at to what sports offer other than just some physical training and a break from reality.

The Carolina Panthers are a 5.5 point and -200 (bet $200 to win $100) favorite over the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl 50, and rumors are the public thinks they’ll roll.  Anywhere from 70-80% of the money in Vegas is being bet on Cam Newton’s squad.  Maybe you don’t have a rooting interest in either team, though, and want a little more action on the game than your average box pool.  If that’s the case, some of these obscure prop bets are for you.

The Denver Broncos come into the Super Bowl with a 12-4 regular season record, and a 2-0 postseason record, putting them at 14-4 on the year. That record is good for the best in the entire AFC, but sadly, in the NFC, their competitors beat them out with a 17-1 total record. The Broncos are a strange team to have in the Super Bowl because throughout the season they haven’t really looked “spectacular”. Their veteran leadership has won them games time and time again, and they’ve barely scathed by a few teams. This quality is what makes them a dark horse with the best Super Bowl odds.
