NFL Gambling Alert: Roethlisberger out, Baltimore bet up to -3

11.14.2012     05:57 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Baltimore -3 at Pittsburgh O/U 41

According to FOX Sports' Jay Glazer, Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (shoulder, rib) will not play Sunday against Baltimore. Byron Leftwich is expected to start in his place. Over the last 12 hours bettors took out nearly all of the 2.5's with the Ravens now 3-point favorites. The total was also hammered down from and opener of 45.5 to 41/41.5. Roethlisberger isn't the only Pittsburgh player with injury concerns. Antonio Brown, Marcus Gilbert, Troy Polamalu and Rashard Mendenhall are all questionable.

NFL Handicapping: Offensive line rankings

11.13.2012     02:01 PM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Here are's Week 10 offensive line rankings. It is in way an exact science trying to rank o-line units but this deep into the season, it is fairly established who is strong and who is not. Not surprising, the bottom of the list is littered with bad teams and losing spread records save for St. Louis' 6-3 ATS mark. The top of the list though is a bit more intriguing. The 49ers rank No. 1 but joining them in the top five are again, some bad football teams (and spread records) most notably the Kansas City Chiefs. Of course when your turnover margin per game is -2.2, no amount of pass protection or run blocking can save you.

32. Arizona (4-5 SU, 3-5-1 ATS)
31. Carolina (2-7 SU, 4-5 ATS)
30. St. Louis (3-5-1 SU, 6-3 ATS)
29. Jacksonville (1-8 SU, 4-5 ATS)
28. Oakland (3-6 SU, 3-6 ATS)

5. Cincinnati (4-5 SU, 3-5-1 ATS)
4. Kansas City (1-8 SU, 3-6 ATS)
3. Minnesota (6-4 SU, 4-5-1 ATS)
2. Detroit (4-5 SU, 4-5 ATS)
1. San Francisco (6-2-1 SU, 5-4 ATS)

Teddy Covers' Wiseguy Report: AFC Contenders and Pretenders

11.12.2012     11:47 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers blog entry.
November is the time in the NFL where we separate contenders from pretenders. Last week, I focused on the NFC; this week, I’ll turn to the AFC. Unfortunately, the Colts and Steelers didn’t play on Sunday, and the Texans’ Sunday Night game was played in weather conditions that affected the game (and the game plan) significantly. Who among the rest can challenge for AFC supremacy? Read on to find out.

Denver Broncos - Another slow start for a West Coast team traveling East; certainly not unusual. Slow starts have been a consistent problem for Denver all year. We saw them fall behind by three scores when they faced Atlanta, Houston and San Diego – three of the tougher foes they've faced. But slow starts are about the only fault I can find with this team right now.

We already know how good Denver’s offense can be, and they score touchdowns : 22 TDs in 32 red zone possessions. The Broncos have an elite quarterback, a strong running game and playmaking WR's - they can trade points with anybody. This team's postseason future rests on the strength (or weakness) of their stop unit; a unit that has stepped up at times and Read more

NFL Handicapper Free Play: Tennessee Titans at Miami Dolphins

Tennessee +6.5 at Miami O/U 44
Recommendation: Tennessee

The Dolphins haven’t exactly been beating up on quality foes.  Their four wins this season have come against the Raiders, Bengals, Rams and Jets.  Two of those four wins came by four points or less, not enough to cover this pointspread.  In the two games where Miami has been favored, they’ve won by three and lost by three, failing to cover the number each time.  The Dolphins have been outgained by nearly 550 yards over the last three weeks.  And, long term, simply betting the underdog in every Dolphins game has produced a remarkable 36-13 ATS streak, including a 6-1 ATS run entering Sunday’s game.

If there’s one game all year that we can expect the Titans to show up for, it’s this one.  Tennessee was thoroughly embarrassed and humiliated on their home field last Sunday; a game that was over by the end of the first quarter.  Owner Bud Adams was not amused: Read more

NFL Handicapping: Tennessee Titans say Locker will start vs. Miami

Tennessee at Miami -6 O/U 44

The Tennessee Titans are planning on starting quarterback Jake Locker vs. Miami. He hasn't played in six weeks.

“He needs to be ready to play and play to the best of his ability,” quarterbacks coach Dowell Loggains said. “We don’t have time for anybody to be rusty. That excuse isn’t available for anybody, including him. And he knows that. It’s part of the deal. And if you ask Jake, he doesn’t expect to be rusty. He’s worked his butt off to be ready.”

NFL Betting News: Miami focused on run game vs. Tennesee

Tennessee at Miami -6 O/U 44

The Miami Dolphins plan to go after the Tennessee Titans via the ground game on Sunday. The Titans have the third worst rush defense in the league (141.6 ypg).

“It’s been inconsistent. At times, it’s very, very productive. At other times, not,” coach Joe Philbin said. “The biggest thing about the run game from [the Colts game], I thought there was some good things. I thought we made some progress. We got the ball to the edge better than we have all year. This type of game it was, (we) didn’t get enough rushing attempts.”

“When you do something well in this league people are going to do whatever they can to take it away from you, and certainly people have schemed up pretty well. Now
