NFL Betting Stock Watch: Struggles could continue for New Orleans Saints

09.14.2012     11:40 AM     ER Sports     Printer Friendly
Submitted by ER Sports blog entry.
Sell the New Orleans Saints – The Saints showed issues on both sides of the football last season, and with the continuing Bounty Scandal surrounding this team the “fade” sign is shining bright.  This will be a season unlike any other as the Saints will obviously try to fight through 2012 without their head coach Sean Payton.  Payton very much seems the lifeblood of the Saints since he lead them to the Super Bowl a few years ago.  To make matters worse, their interim head coach Joe Vitt is also suspended for six weeks, as is General Manager Mickey Loomis for eight weeks.  There’s so much that goes on behind the scenes in the NFL that losing that kind of manpower will undoubtedly take its toll on Sundays.  Interim head coach Aaron Kromer is certainly in over his head and it showed last week as the Saints lost to the Washington Redskins 40-32.  The Redskins scored on seven of their first eight possessions, while New Orleans’ offense tallied just 200 yards and 10 points through the first 50 minutes of the game.  This was clearly a sign the Saints failed to prepare adequately in this contest.  On the Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Alabama Crimson Tide at Arkansas Razorbacks

Alabama at Arkansas
Brent Crow's Recommendation:
Saturday, 12:30 pm PT - CBS
CRIS Opener:
Alabama -15.5 O/U 52
CRIS Current: Alabama -20 O/U 54
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Alabama -13.5

A week ago Alabama would have been a seven-point favorite in this game, but after Arkansas imploded in last week’s 34-31 loss to UL-Monroe, the Crimson Tide are now nearly three touchdown road chalk in an SEC game. Arkansas quarterback Tyler Wilson got hurt last week and is questionable for this week’s game, but this pointspread may be an overadjustment. Wilson has practiced this week, but head coach John L. Smith said that he has not been cleared to play and the decision is not in his hands. Wilson will play if he is cleared by team doctors, and with him practicing this week, I expect to see him on the field.

The bigger concern for Arkansas may be its defense. The Hogs have allowed 50 Read more

NFL Handicapping: Arizona Cardinals will start Kolb vs. New England

09.13.2012     12:14 PM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Arizona at New England -13.5 O/U 48.5

The Arizona Cardinals said that Kevin Kolb will start Sunday's game at New England. According to ESPN, this information came from "league sources" and team president Michael Bidwell, not head coach Ken Whisenhunt. Maybe Whisenhunt is trying to do his best Bill Belichick impression or maybe he spotted Kolb's horrific track record on the road (3-6, 64.8 rating, 6 TDs, 10 INTs) and wants to weigh all of his options. The problem is he doesn't have many with John Skelton out because of an ankle injury.

NFL Gambling Preview: New Orleans Saints at Carolina Panthers

New Orleans at Carolina
Teddy Covers' Recommendation:
Lean towards Over
Sunday, 10 am PT - FOX
CRIS Opener:
New Orleans -3 (+101) O/U 51
CRIS Current: New Orleans -3 O/U 51
Rob Veno's Power Rating: New Orleans -3.5

Not much went right for either of these two teams in their season opener. The Saints defense was picked apart by a rookie QB making his first NFL start; giving up 40 points and 464 yards (a whopping 6.5 yards per snap), unable to stop the run or the pass in Steve Spagnuolo’s first game as the coordinator. Meanwhile, Drew Brees completed less than half of his pass attempts while throwing a pair of interceptions, after throwing only four INTs in his final eight regular season games last year. The Saints gave up on the run rather quickly in a game they trailed from the get-go, with Pierre Thomas and Mark Ingram combining for only 32 yards on ten rushing attempts.

Carolina, too, was gashed by Read more

College Football Gambling: Nebraska expected to make defensive changes

09.13.2012     06:59 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Arkansas State at Nebraska -24.5 O/U 67

Let's first give credit where credit is due. UCLA's offense has been impressive. Putting up 653 yards of total offense on any FBS school shows you have some talent. That being said, Nebraska's defense was awful. Bottom line is the Cornhuskers made the Bruins look like the Ducks. And it looks as if the main culprit was a lack of speed. Starting defensive tackle Chase Rome left the team following the loss and defensive coordinator John Papuchis hinted there may be some lineup changes for Saturday's game against Arkansas State.

"Team speed has been a little bit lacking over the first couple games, so we're going to try to get some of our faster guys on the field and see how that works this week," Papuchis said. "Everybody is in the equation. If we Read more

NFL Handicapping: St. Louis Rams hurting along offensive line

Washington -3 at St. Louis O/U 45.5

St. Louis' offensive line is getting bit by the injury bug. Starting center Scott Wells began the season on IR. Starting guard Rokevious Watkins (ankle) missed practice today and has been using crutches. And starting tackle Rodger Saffold suffered a neck injury in Week 1 and may not play on Sunday.

NFL Gambling Preview: Kansas City Chiefs at Buffalo Bills

Kansas City at Buffalo
Erin Rynning’s Recommendation:
Kansas City
Sunday, 10 am PT - CBS
CRIS Opener:
Buffalo -3 (-121) O/U 44
CRIS Current: Buffalo -3 (-120) O/U 44.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Buffalo -2.5

Both Kansas City and Buffalo were embarrassed in Week 1. The Bills were trounced by the Jet 48-28.  Disappointment abounds, especially from a defense that was expected to be much improved.  With the addition of Mario Williams and Mark Anderson, plus the return of a healthy Kyle Williams, the defensive line was supposed to drastically improve the stop unit as a whole.  One game obviously doesn’t make a season but they’ll need to show drastic improvement as the Chiefs actually have more offensive weapons. Offensively, Ryan Fitzpatrick was once again making poor decisions and turning the ball over.  The unit also lost two key links in running back Fred Jackson and wide receiver Read more

NFL Gambling Notes: Carolina not worred about poor run game in Week 1

09.11.2012     12:25 PM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
New Orleans -2.5 at Carolina O/U 50.5

The Carolina Panthers respond to being held to only 10 yards rushing in Week 1's loss to Tampa Bay. Head coach Ron Rivera claims their struggles are fixable. Running back Jonathan Stewart missed that game and is lited as questionable for Sunday.

“There’s some cause for optimism as the mistakes on the offensive side are all correctable,” Rivera said Monday. “It wasn’t a glaring thing as far as schematically. It was a player here or a player there, something that they did (wrong). We’ll get better at it.”

William Hill wants to provide Vegas bettors with endless amount of options

09.11.2012     06:24 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Article from the Las Vegas Sun on William Hill's preparation for the football season.

“They could have 20 or 30 bets during a quarter of a football or soccer game,” Vaccaro said. “We don’t approach that, but our goal is to someday maximize what they do over there here in Nevada. Can we get to 2,300 bets a day? I don’t know, but we’re working on it.”

“We knew there really wasn’t anything else out there with a point-spread in college,” Shapiro explained. “It’s the only contest of its kind in the market.”

Teddy Covers' Wiseguy Report: Recapping NFL rookie quarterbacks in Week 1

09.10.2012     07:09 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
With an NFL record five rookie starting quarterbacks under center on opening day, I spent the first Sunday of the regular season watching these youngsters very carefully. I tried to evaluate each one within the context of his team – no quarterback can be successful without the complimentary pieces of the equation surrounding him, both on offense and on defense. Here are my thoughts:

Cleveland Browns - Cleveland’s defense held Michael Vick to a QB rating of 25.4. They forced five turnovers, returning one for a score and setting up all three Browns’ offensive scores. Their defensive playmakers made huge plays, most notably CB Joe Haden and LB D’Qwell Jackson, and Michael Vick was positively pummeled by the Browns pass rush.

And yet the Browns still found a way to lose. With the game on the line late in the fourth quarter – boom, a dropped INT in the end zone that would have clinched the game. And there’s no sugarcoating this performance from Brandon Weeden, the worst looking of all the rookie quarterbacks in the preseason and in his first “real” start.

On Weeden's first drive, he missed a Read more
