Browns Become Most Entertaining Team in NFL with OBJ Trade

The Browns are now must-watch television.  Late Tuesday afternoon, the Cleveland Browns acquired Odell Beckham Jr. from the New York Giants for a 1st and 3rd round picks in the upcoming draft, along with safety Jabrill Peppers, and Offensive Lineman Kevin Zeitler.

2019 NFL Pro Bowl Betting – The Super Bowl has a higher total

The NFL has made it a mission to turn the 2019 Pro Bowl betting matchup into something more than just a glorified, meaningless, celebration. They’ve sort of succeeded? The last two Pro Bowls have been dink and dunk contests both won by the AFC, 20-13 in 2016 and 24-23 in 2017, and each has turned the clock back on the idea that the OVER in the Pro Bowl is guaranteed money like it used to be. You want to know [...]

NFL Week 16  Free Picks – A Truly Difficult Sunday of Handicapping

Nick Foles took Carson Wentz’s place under center for the Philadelphia Eagles and promptly led the defending champs to a big upset win over the Los Angeles Rams in what would be a shocker if we hadn't also seen this same backup quarterback become a Super Bowl MVP.
