NFL: Which quarterback will throw for the most yards in 2019?

When trying to determine which quarterback is going to have the most passing yards in the 2019 NFL season, there are so many variables to consider that it can make your head spin. Rather than narrow down to a single selection, let's consider which 10 quarterbacks deserve most consideration for this prop wager.

Who will be the 2019 NFL MVP?

The Rams were the early favorites to win the Super [...]

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.
