Dallas Cowboys Vs Injured Mike Vick and The Philadelphia Eagles – Week 17

The Dallas Cowboys were one of the teams that fans, punters, and those in the know picked in the beginning to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl. Instead of shining bright though, they turned out to be plain old dirt kick’n cow pokes. As of late however, the team seems to be turning things around, playing good football and might even have a shot at redeeming their season by defeating the Philadelphia Eagles this week. This is as much due to the recently decrepit state of the Eagles star QB Mike Vick as it is to due with the Cowboys playing well. The Eagles will be playing for the top seed in the NFC if the Falcons lose. The worst the Eagles could finish is third seed. The Atlanta Falcons play in the morning and the Eagles play in the afternoon. The Eagles game plan could hinge on what Read More

Arsenal vs. Chelsea

This game is a real Premier League classic and you need to compare and contrast the two teams recent form before you bet on the result. Arsenal have 31 points and they are 2nd in the English League. From their last 5 games they have won 3 and lost 2.During these matches they scored 9 goals and got 7. So their forwards are in pretty good form, but their defenders are not. On their last match, against Manchester United, Arsenal played very well, however because of their defenders they lost. If their coach could find the solution for this problem, then Arsenal have a big chance to beat Chelsea. Chelsea have 31 points and they are 4th in the English League. Their recent form is awful because from their last 5 games they have won only 1, lost 1 and tied 3. This is not that bad, but they scored Read More

Fc Barcelona vs. Athletic Bilbao

Would you like to bet on this match? If the answer is S, then you must analyze each teams performance carefully. Lets start with Fc Barcelona! Barcelona have 43 points and they are the 1st in the Spanish League. They have won their last 5 games. During these matches Barcelona scored 20 goals and got only 1. This means that the whole team is in great shape. On their last match, against Espanyol, Barcelona players moved together, shot a lot on target and scored 5 goals, but most importantly it seemed that they do not have a vulnerable point. Athletic Bilbao have 25 points and they are 6th in the Spanish League. From their last 5 games they have won 3 and lost 2. During these matches they scored 6 goals and got 9. This means that their forwards are in good form, however their defenders are inexperienced. This is Read More

Navy vs. San Diego State

Among the most intriguing matchups of the young December bowl season, the Poinsettia Bowl pits the Naval Academy against San Diego State University. Navy thrives on running the football, ranking fifth nationally with just under 200 yards per game. Meanwhile, San Diego State, under the direction of second-year head coach Brady Hoke, boasted an above average rush defense, finishing third in the Mountain West in that category. Sportsbook.com has placed San Diego State as a 4.5 point favorite and the over/under at 60.5. I like Navy to cover +4.5 points because of their strong running game and their recent history playing in San Diego. Navy has played in San Diego’s bowl game twice in the last 10 years, winning a 51-30 shootout with Colorado State back in 2005 and narrowly losing to Utah, 35-32, back in 2007. From a betting standpoint, the recent bowl history is somewhat significant, but it’s Read More

Denver Broncos vs Oakland Raiders

The Denver Broncos will travel to play the Oakland Raiders Sunday December 19th and they will have revenge in their heart when they enter McAfee Stadium. Sportsbook.com has made the Oakland Raiders a four point favorite in this game but it will be a typical AFC West slug fest when these two teams step on the field. The Oakland Raiders embarrassed the Denver Broncos on their home field earlier this season by scoring 59 points on them and scoring the highest point total in the NFL this season. The Denver Broncos have since terminated their head coach Josh McDaniels and they are coming off a beating at the hands of the Arizona Cardinals in Phoenix. The loss to an Arizona Cardinals team using a rookie quarterback may have set a new low for Denver this season. The Oakland Raiders dropped a tough game to the Jacksonville Jaguars last week and Read More

Betting the Big Games in the NFL

Entering into week 15 we have 11 games coming up with playoff implications. What an exciting week of NFL Football we have ahead. So where are you putting your money? Gonna be a Homer, goin’ with the Underdog, or riding the favorites? Most people don’t like betting on their team and I don’t blame them, it’s twice as bad when they lose. So favorites or underdogs? Playoff implications put a whole new spin on the games. Teams feel the pressure and those out of it want to eliminate them as they feel this is their playoff game. With 3 games like this we have 8 games matching 2 teams vying for a playoff berth, 2 of which are battles within the division. The Giants take on the Eagles at home, and the Jaguars are visiting the Colts. I like this one! Jags lead the division and the Colts who are Read More

New York Jets vs Pittsburgh Steelers

The New York Jets will face the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday December 19th in a key AFC match up with playoff implications. Sportsbook.com has set the line on this game with the Steelers as a six point favorite over the Jets. The New York Jets were the favorite to advance to the Super Bowl this season until they lost to the New England Patriots on Monday Night Football two weeks ago. Lost is being kind to the Jets. The New England Patriots and Tom Brady dissected them with surgeon like precision in the 45-3 win. The Pittsburgh Steelers have been fortunate in their division battles over the last two weeks. They edged out the Baltimore Ravens in a classic AFC North battle two Sundays ago on Sunday Night Football and they handled the Cincinnati Bengals last weekend by scoring two pick six touchdowns on defense. Rex Ryan, the Jets head coach Read More

Betting on Major Games in the NFL

With the playoffs looming in week 15 we have 4 games and one on the fringe involving teams that have no chance of making it in. A lot of people like wagering on the big games. I don’t know maybe because they’ll be televised and they can watch. However you can find great bets on the meaningless ones. Take this one on the fringe for example. Denver traveling to Oakland. Denver is Out of the playoffs. Oakland is hanging on by a prayer. Last week Denver is crushed by the lowly Cardinals and Oakland battles Jacksonville to the finish. Because of this I see Oakland as the favorite by about 6 1/2 with the over/under at 44 (O/U is the total combined score). With Oakland’s playoff hopes, being at home, and Denver’s apparent collapse after firing the head coach, I think most people will be going with the favorite. I’m Read More

New Mexico Bowl Playoff

Kick-Off’s set for 12:04p.m. Mountain Time and will be televised by ESPN and ESPN HD. At current, Sportsbook.com is offering the following odds: UTEP +11.5 Cougars -11.5 So far this season we’ve seen BYU, ranked top 50 nationally in pass efficiency defence, turnover margin, scoring defence,  pass defence, total defence, rushing offense, and sacks allowed, kick ass in the Mountain West Conference, we’ve also seen them blow when they met up against non-conference opponents. The Coug’s on the other hand have won 5 of 8 games played in the MWC but faltered overall, finishing 6-6. The New Mexico Bowl marks the first time UTEP and BYU have faced each other on the field since the two of them met at the Western Read More
