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 [...]

Bruce Arians Leads List of New NFL Coaching Hires for 2019

We're still a ways away from the oddsmakers releasing the 2019 season win totals (aka, the best non-game betting market in football) but the new NFL coaching hires are already underway. It's never too early to try and get out ahead of next season. The Cincinnati Bengals, New York Jets and Miami Dolphins have yet to name their new leader as of this writing and we'll update when all three have finally figured out who's going to lead them to [...]

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, [...]

NFL Week 14 Betting – New Orleans Saints at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The Saints enter this NFL Week 14 divisional fray off a Thursday night loss at Dallas, 13-10. Drew Brees and the Saints’ explosive offense was kept off the field with just 23:07 minutes of possession time, and New Orleans was shut down by the Dallas defense with just 176 yards. Tampa Bay beat division rival Carolina last week 24-17 as a home underdog despite being out-gained by the Panthers 444-315. Cam Newton had four interceptions in defeat, and now the [...]

NFL Power Rankings Week 13

NFL Power Rankings Week 13 1. Los Angeles Rams (11-1 SU and 5-5-2 ATS) Todd Gurley pulling the "I'll just score this touchdown untouched in a few plays anyways" thing where he burned more time off the clock is the ultimate swagger move. Next Game: LAR -3.0 at Chicago 2. New Orleans Saints (10-1 SU and 9-2 ATS) You don't get to keep the spot after you lose a game, especially one that EVERYONE saw. Thanks to less-than-spectacular performances from his counterparts [...]

NFL Week 13 Betting – Carolina Panthers at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Sitting 6-2 three weeks ago and surging towards the playoffs, the Carolina Panthers are now 6-5 and fighting for their playoff lives. A division title is lost as the New Orleans Saints (10-1) are running away with the NFC South and four games clear of the second place Panthers. Carolina is now in a 3-way tie for the second and final NFC wild card spot, but the Panthers should bounce back and explode on offense against the deficient defense of [...]
