NFL Handicapping: Baltimore in search of more offensive balance

10.10.2014     08:16 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Baltimore -3.5 at Tampa Bay O/U 43.5

Following last week's play calling that featured 42 pass plays to just 15 rushes, the Baltimore Ravens are looking for a more balanced attack against Tampa Bay.

“Last week was the least amount of plays we’ve run in a game and least amount of time we’ve been on the field, and it was self-inflicted,” Kubiak said. “We were poor on third down, and if you’re poor on third down in this league, you’re not going to get snaps and you’re not going to stay on the field. I’m disappointed with last week – everything we did wasn’t good enough. But we’d like to be a balanced football team, and that’s not going to change.”

NFL Gambling: Sportsbook keep three games off the board due to injuries

10.09.2014     02:17 PM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Amazing that it's Thursday afternoon and three NFL games are still not lined due to "key" injuries. Jacksonville-Tennessee is off the board due to the not-even-close-to-being important status of Jake Locker. Detroit's Calvin Johnson and Reggie Bush remain questionable so no line of their game at Minnesota. Teddy Bridgewater was upgraded to probable. And Arizona doesn't know who will play quarterback vs. Washington. Drew Stanton (concussion) and Carson Palmer (shoulder) are both questionable.

NFL Handicapping: Penalties are up but it hasn't impacted totals

10.09.2014     01:14 PM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Despite the fact that penalties in the NFL are up over two per game compared to last season, oddsmakers and the betting markets have been quick to adjust as totals show just a small lean towards the over at 40-36 O/U. Most would associate the increase in penalties with the emphasis on defensive holding in the secondary. But through five weeks, 15 offensive touchdowns have been wiped out due to other infractions -- three of which on Seattle during last week's MNF game.

NFL Gambling Preview: Chicago Bears at Atlanta Falcons

Submitted by Rob Veno blog entry.
Chicago at Atlanta
Sunday, 10 am PT - FOX
CRIS Opener:
Atlanta -3 O/U 54
CRIS Current: Atlanta -3 O/U 53.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Atlanta -3.5
Rob Veno's Recommendation: Over

Here’s a game that is just as attractive to fantasy football owners as it is to the handicapping/betting community. Obvious big play aerial components on each side but Chicago has better ability to create balance with the running Matt Forte. Offensive line injuries plaguing each of these teams the past couple weeks but Atlanta starting left guard Justin Blalock did return to practice Wednesday in limited participation. His presence would provide a significant boost. The Bears could also receive some much needed help as center Roberto Garza is practicing again after missing the last three games. Left tackle Jermon Bushrod who missed last week remains a concern as his knee/ankle injuries may keep him out again.

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: NFL has longstanding relationship with gambling

10.06.2014     12:25 PM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers blog entry.
Publicly, the NFL is among the staunchest opponents to legalized gambling in the United States.  Heck, the league famously refused an advertisement from the Las Vegas Visitors and Convention Bureau for the Super Bowl, in an effort to appear like they are really anti-gaming. 

Former commissioner Paul Tagliabue and current commissioner Roger Goodell were instrumental in getting the anti gaming Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act attached to the Port Security Bill in October 2006.  The NFL has taken this stance despite the fact that it’s enormously popularity is, in no small part, due to the prevalence of betting on games.

The hypocrisy of the NFL in regards to betting is almost laughable.  The facts, as you will see, clearly show that the league was founded by gamblers for gamblers.  From the NFL’s first television appearance in 1939 through the current TV deals that pumps nearly six billions dollars per year into the league coffers, the NFL’s popularity rests upon the shoulders of those who wager on the outcome of the games.

Here in the 21st century, the NFL is the most popular and profitable sport in the Read more
