Updated 2019 Super Bowl Futures – Rams Are Technically “The Longshot”

The recently updated 2019 Super Bowl futures essentially took the prices heading in to last week, and shaved somewhere between 25 and 40 percent off the top. The math checks out, but what's perhaps the most interesting element is just how tight these numbers are. There aren't any true longshots. There are no, crazy, underdog stories. Even the betting lines themselves are hovering around the natural home line, with the Saints posting as -3.5 favorites at home against the Rams, [...]

Scully’s NFL Free Picks – Divisional Playoffs Sunday

Los Angeles Chargers +4 vs New England Patriots (Sunday 1:05 p.m. ET) Intriguing match-up between AFC powerhouse New England, who has made the last two Super Bowls, and a 13-4 Chargers team that has covered seven straight on the road. Los Angeles arguably playing better football, winning on the road at Pittsburgh, Kansas City and Baltimore over the last six weeks. New England did not face a playoff team during the second half of the season but lost three of [...]

Scully’s NFL Free Picks – Divisional Playoffs Saturday

Indianapolis Colts +5.5 vs Kansas City Chiefs (Saturday 4:35 p.m. ET) Expect fireworks. Kansas City led the NFL in scoring, averaging 35.3 points per game behind superstar Patrick Mahones, who threw for 5,097 yards and 50 TDs in his first year at the helm. Indianapolis ranked seventh in scoring (27.1 points) and exit an impressive wildcard-round showing at Houston, jumping out to a 21-0 halftime advantage and surrendering no sacks as Andrew Luck had all day to throw against one [...]

Scott Shapiro’s NFL Playoff Selections and Analysis- Sunday’s Divisional Round

The second doubleheader in the National Football League divisional round playoffs gets rolling at 1:05 p.m. EST on Sunday. Much like with Saturday’s twin bill, I am going to attempt to buck the trend of favorites doing well in this round by backing the two dogs.

Scott Shapiro’s NFL Playoffs Selections and Analysis- Saturday’s Divisional Round

After a Wild Card round that was kind to those who backed underdogs, another great slate of playoff games is on tap this weekend in the National Football League. History suggests that relying on dogs to get the job done in the divisional round both outright or against the number can be a dangerous endeavor, but I think this season is unique. In years’ past, the majority of top seeds come into the playoffs playing their best ball, but I [...]

2019 NFC Divisional Round Betting – Cowboys Surging In To Los Angeles

The Dallas Cowboys held on for a 24-22 victory over the Seattle Seahawks in a thrilling wildcard game last Saturday. For their efforts, America’s Team gets a date with the Los Angeles Rams at the L.A. Memorial Coliseum on Saturday, January 12 in 2019 NFC Divisional Round betting. Although the Cowboys didn't cover the -2.5 spread, beating the Seahawks surprised plenty of NFL handicappers. Many backed Seattle on the moneyline. All the money on Seattle went out the window after [...]

Philadelphia Facing Largest Line in 2019 NFL Playoff Betting

The Philadelphia Eagles landed at Soldier Field last Sunday and handed the Chicago Bears an improbable loss. How improbable? Of the four wildcard games, the Bears offered the most points of any favorite, 6.5. By beating the Bears, Philly gets a chance to avenge the horrible 7-48 loss they suffered at the hands of the New Orleans Saints during the regular season but are yet again a massive 2019 NFL playoff betting underdog. The Eagles used some luck in beating [...]

2019 Australian Open Futures – Farewell, Andy Murray

To say that Andy Murray deserves better should go without saying. A champion of all the right causes, and a decent bloke to boot, Murray is stepping away from the sport he loves (and is awesome at) due to a hip injury that doesn't seem to be getting any better. It's a very tragic start to the tour, but also breaks up the Big Four. Murray's 2019 Australian Open futures odds have been adjusted. Novak Djokovic (+160 2019 Australian Open Futures) [...]

Odds to win Super Bowl Llll – Saints Posting As Clear +225 Favorites

Three underdogs pulled outright upsets in the Wild Card round. That runs the against the spread record to 10-0 since last year's playoffs. The race to win the Vince Lombardi trophy looks wide open. As has been the case all year long, there's been no, true front runner, but the oddsmakers have pushed the New Orleans Saints to the top of the pile by a strong margin. They are nearly half the price of the Kansas City Chiefs, who are [...]
