Los Angeles Rams Open As Super Bowl 54 Co-Favorite

The blood on Jared Goff's hand isn't even dry, but sports betting is a forward-looking type of hobby so let's wait a minute to digest the New England Patriots winning Super Bowl 53 and look ahead to the Super Bowl 54 futures. Los Angeles Rams +750 to win Super Bowl 54 No touchdowns in Super Bowl LIII? Apparently...no problem?

SBLIII – Do NFL Running Backs Matter?

Over the past few seasons, a very strange debate has broken out. Do NFL running backs matter in the grand scheme of the game? With Super Bowl LIII barreling down our throats on Sunday, February 3rd, it's a discussion worth having especially when you consider how much one team is paying for the services of their running game compared to their opponent. Yes, of course we're talking Todd Gurley here. Before we broach his impact on this subject, we should [...]

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 [...]

Nick Foles Has Earned The Right To Control His Destiny

The Philadelphia Eagles aren’t trading Carson Wentz. When Doug Pederson said that Wentz is their starting quarterback, he meant it. That's not the issue in Philadelphia, and it never really was. Finding a franchise quarterback is exceptionally tough and Wentz has all the tools (with a few caveats I'll get to in a bit). So instead, the discussion turns to the immediate future of Nick Foles. And let's be clear on this - the question is purely about whether or not [...]

NFL Week 17 Free Picks – Drama, Karma and Playoff Implications!

The final week of the current NFL Regular Season is here and wouldn’t you know it? Drama’s present in plenty of games. At least nine games could have serious playoff implications. There's even future consequences for teams involved in otherwise meaningless skirmishes. Will the Giants stick with Eli Manning? Could the Buccaneers actually extend Jameis Winston? Which coaches will finally burn up on the hot seat? NFL Week 17 isn’t time to turn off the television and plan your New [...]

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. Foles must continue his late season heroics when the Eagles host AFC South winner Houston on Sunday. If the season ended today, the Texans would be the second seed in the AFC, [...]

Scott Shapiro’s Week 16 NFL 4-Pack

I am hopeful to close out the 2018 regular season in style with this being the final “NFL 4-Pack” write up of the year. I will be off during the squirrelly Week 17, but back to share my thoughts once the playoffs commence. In the meantime, be sure to follow @BetAmericaSport on Twitter So without further ado…. Philadelphia Eagles (-1.5) vs Houston Texans Is it happening again? When the defending champions looked dead to rights after losing to NFC East [...]
