NFL Preseason Handicapping: Arizona Cardinals to play starters first quarter vs. San Diego Chargers

08.19.2015     07:31 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Arizona head coach Bruce Arians said his starters will play the entire first quarter of Saturday's Week 2 preseason game vs. San Diego. The Cardinals are currently -2.5 home favorites with a total of 39.5.

“There’s a certain number of snaps that they all need together when you’re getting into the regular season,” Arians said. “I don’t think you can get those practicing. I was pleased with that first drive and I think you do risk getting hit but you have to get practice with your full 11 guys out there.”

NFL Handicapping: New York Jets scramble to shore up QB issues

08.19.2015     07:26 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
No stranger to quarterback issues, the New York Jets just signed journeyman Matt Flynn to a one-year contract. Flynn is expected to back up current starter Ryan Fitzpatrick with Geno Smith obviously injured and rookie Bryce Petty referred to as a "work in progress." Jets' quarterbacks combined for 56 yards on 12-of-21 passing in Week 1's 23-3 loss to Detroit. It all presents an interesting scenario for Friday's preseason game vs. Atlanta. The game is currently line at a pick ‘em.

NFL Handicapping: New York Giants acknowledge defense is a work in progress

08.18.2015     08:32 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
First-year defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo talks about the work in progress that is the New York Giants' defense. Week 1's opponent, Cincinnati, rolled up 432 yards, over 6 yards per play, and 29 first downs in a 23-10 spread covering victory. The Giants (-3) play host to Jacksonville on Saturday.

“I saw more of it in the practices against Cincinnati, to be honest with you,” Spagnuolo said. “I’m not really sure in the game. I think if you were to ask every one of our guys to a man, we would’ve thought that we would have played more physical and faster. We’re all trying to put our finger on that, and I think everybody has to look in the mirror first. But that is the goal. I think you can make up for a lot of mistakes if you do that, we all know that. That’s the goal, that’s been a goal right from the beginning.”

“The first touchdown, I’m going to take the onus on that one. We didn’t game plan against Cincinnati. Had

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: NFL Preseason Week 1 Betting Recap

08.17.2015     08:03 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers blog entry.
Week 1 of the NFL Preseason is behind us.  The NFL season win totals futures markets are already reacting to what we’ve seen, showing some modest movement off the successes and failures of the first and second string units.  We can expect that initial line movement to continue unabated if we see more of the same from those units in Week 2.  In this week’s Wiseguy Report, I’ll take a quick tour around the NFL, specifically focusing on any misleading stats or under-the radar performances from the 16 games that we just saw.

Let’s start with a brief overview of the results.  It was a strong Week 1 for the betting favorites.  There were three games that closed right around pick ‘em with no chalk to speak of: KC at Arizona, Washington at Cleveland and Miami at Chicago.  Of the 13 games that closed with a legitimate favorite of at least -1 or higher here in Las Vegas, the favorites dominated to the tune of 10-3 ATS (counting Jacksonville -1.5 as a win in their two point victory over Pittsburgh).  All three underdogs that covered won the game in SU fashion (Carolina beat Buffalo, Green Bay won at New England and Read more

NFL Preseason Free Betting Pick: Denver Broncos at Seattle Seahawks

08.14.2015     10:25 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers blog entry.
Denver +5 at Seattle O/U 36.5
Recommendation: Denver

The betting markets are infatuated with Pete Carroll’s preseason track record in Seattle; installing the Seahawks as five point favorites against the Broncos.  And it’s easy to understand why the markets love Carroll in August, particularly playing at home.  They won their two home preseason games last year by 41-14 and 34-6 margins, won 40-10 and 22-6 in home preseason games in 2013, and won 27-17 and 21-3 in home preseason games in 2012.

But that’s all in the rear view mirror now – the conditions that existed in Seattle in recent years just don’t exist this year.  That makes the Seahawks a poor favorite for their 2015 preseason debut on Friday.   What has changed?  A LOT!

Fresh off back-2-back Super Bowl appearances, the Seahawks have nothing to prove in August.  Seattle has been one of the deepest teams in the league in recent seasons, giving them great depth in the second half of these preseason games.   That’s not the case anymore, with the Seahawks up against the salary cap – this is NOT a Read more
