New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady

Texans at Patriots Picks and NFL Betting Odds
by Trevor Whenham - 1/10/2013

The last time these squads met, it was billed as a dream matchup for NFL fans. However, it very quickly turned into a nightmare for Houston. They were completely and utterly exposed in every aspect of the game. The result, beyond the bad loss, was a real blow to their confidence that they haven’t completely shaken.

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant

Cowboys at Redskins Picks and NFL Betting Odds
by Trevor Whenham - 12/28/2012

The playoffs start a week early in the NFC East. Thanks to a season that was disappointing for three teams in the division, and shocking for the fourth, we head into the final weekend of the season not knowing whether the Cowboys or the Redskins will win the division and host a playoff game next weekend. This is essentially an elimination game. If the Cowboys win they are in. The same goes for the Redskins, though they have a small chance of survival even if they lose. They would still advance if Chicago and Minnesota also lose, though they will know those results before their game kicks off, and it seems unlikely that neither will win.

NFL Picks: Packers at Vikings Odds and Betting Predictions
by Trevor Whenham - 12/27/2012

It’s always exciting when these two bitter rivals play — even if it seems wrong for a key NFC North game to be decided inside where it is comfortable instead of outside in the bitter cold and snow. This game should be even more exciting than most, though. Both teams have a lot on the line, and there is history on the line as well. If Green Bay wins this one then they secure the second seed, and the Packers get the coveted bye week before their playoff journey begins. If they lose and San Francisco wins, then they would drop to the third seed and would host Chicago, Minnesota or the Giants next week.

Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson.

NFL Picks: Bears at Lions Predictions and Betting Odds
by Trevor Whenham - 12/27/2012

When I told my son about this game, he was adamant that the Lions were going to win. His reasoning was simple — Lions roar louder than Bears. He’s two, and in his world that’s all that matters. Detroit probably wishes it really were that simple. If it were, then there aren’t many teams that could beat a Lion. Sadly, though, it’s about football, not your spot on the food chain, and on that front the Lions are in a very tough spot. The truth is that this year they just haven’t been very good, and now they have nothing at all to play for.

NFL Week 17 Player Props Odds and Betting Picks
by Alan Matthews - 12/27/2012

If you have followed these weekly NFL props stories I have done this season, you know I get giddy about predicting the futures of NFL head coaches. Well, for Week 17 Bovada has one more head coaching prop, so let’s get to that first. How many head coaches will be fired or resign by the time the first playoff game kicks off: “over/under” 6.5.

Week 17 NFL Teasers Advice: Best Three for Basic Strategy Teases
by George Monroy - 12/27/2012

Welcome to the final week of the season and one of the last chances to wager on a basic strategy teaser until the 2013 NFL season. The year has come and gone faster than a pick-six that pulls off a cover and ruins the spread. It seems like only yesterday that the replacement referees were messing up games and taking years off the life expectancy of NFL bettors everywhere. But, luckily for NFL gamblers, basic strategy teasers have won at an 85 percent rate this season, and they have been a solid investment for sports bettors all year. Let’s just jump right in and take a look at this week’s basic strategy teaser games and try to find the best value wagers for the final week of the season.

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson

NFL Totals Betting: Week 17 Over and Under Predictions
by Dave Schwab - 12/25/2012

Last week in the NFL, seven games went “over” the total, eight stayed “under” and there was one “push”. This means that over the past 10 weeks the oddsmakers have been able to keep the results on the NFL total line just about dead even with an overall record of 71-74-4. I went even across the board with my top three picks last week at 1-1-1 to take my year-to-date record to 24-19-2. With just one more week to sharpen my edge for the playoffs, I dug deep into this Sunday’s matchups in an effort to unearth the value in the total line.

Weekly Philadelphia Eagles Betting Picks: Week 17 vs. Giants
by Dave Schwab - 12/25/2012

The Philadelphia Eagles will once again try and play the role of spoiler when they invade MetLife Stadium this upcoming Sunday afternoon for their season finale against the New York Giants. This NFC East clash is set to get underway at 1 p.m. (ET) and it will be broadcast on FOX.

Week 16 NFL Teasers Advice: Best Three for Basic Strategy Teases
by George Monroy - 12/21/2012

The final few weeks of the NFL season can be tricky for bettors, as some teams have their playoffs fates already locked up while others are still fighting for their postseason lives. However, if bettors can stay patient, the last two weeks of the season could also present gamblers with more than a few great opportunities to wager on. So, let’s take a look at this week’s basic strategy teaser games and see which matchups have the best value.

49ers Quarterback Colin Kaepernick

NFL Picks: 49ers at Seahawks Betting Odds and Predictions
by Trevor Whenham - 12/20/2012

This game isn’t actually life-or-death for either team, but there is a whole lot on the line when the 49ers meet the Seahawks on Sunday night in the last game before Christmas. If the 49ers win the game they will win the NFC West, and they will be one last win or a Green Bay loss away from securing a bye. A loss isn’t fatal for them — they can still secure the division with a win in their finale, though their chances of a bye would be badly hurt.

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo

NFL Week 16 Player Props, Leaders Odds and Betting Picks
by Alan Matthews - 12/20/2012

Numbers are hallowed in Major League Baseball. I likely don’t have to tell you what the single-season home run record is or how many career leader Barry Bonds has. Or what Joe DiMaggio’s consecutive hits record is. Or the last player to hit .400 or win 30 games.

The Bills' quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick

NFL Totals Betting: Week 16 Over and Under Predictions
by Dave Schwab - 12/17/2012

The results on the NFL total line have basically remained even for the last nine weeks of the season with 64 games going “over” the total, 66 games staying “under” and three games ending as a “push”. Despite the oddsmakers’ ability to sharpen these lines down to a razor-thin edge, another 2-1 record for last week raised my overall record on the year to 23-18-1. Since we are down to the final two weeks of the regular season, I decided to dig even deeper into this Sunday’s matchups to find where the value lies in the total line.

Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III

Weekly Philadelphia Eagles Betting Picks: Week 16 vs. Washington
by Dave Schwab - 12/17/2012

The division-leading Washington Redskins will look to take one step closer to their first NFC East title since 1999 this Sunday when they travel to Lincoln Financial field to face the 4-10 Philadelphia Eagles. The game is slated to get underway at 1 p.m. (ET) and it will be broadcast on FOX.

San Francisco 49ers' starting quarterback Colin Kaepernick

49ers at Patriots Picks and NFL Betting Predictions
by Trevor Whenham - 12/13/2012

Up until last weekend the best game any team had played all year was San Francisco’s 34-0 win at the Jets. Now that distinction belongs to the Patriots. Their showdown at home against Houston was supposed to be a battle between the elite squads in the AFC, but it turned out to be a stunning mismatch. New England was close to flawless, and they made the Texans look ridiculous. Now they come off that game to face the best team in the NFC in what could easily wind up being a Super Bowl preview. It’s a second very tough game in a row, but it’s also the last big test — only Jacksonville and Miami remain after this one.

NFL Week 15 Player Props, Leaders Odds and Betting Picks
by Alan Matthews - 12/13/2012

Certainly the marquee game in Week 15, all due respect to Denver-Baltimore, is San Francisco at New England, an incredibly tough back-to-back for the Patriots after thumping the Texans on Monday night. Right now, New England and San Francisco are the respective-odds on favorites in the conferences. Thus Bovada offers a Week 15 special on whether that’s the Super Bowl matchup: “no” -1500 and “yes” +750.

Texans Running Back Ben Tate

NFL Totals Betting: Week 15 Over and Under Predictions
by Dave Schwab - 12/12/2012

The oddsmakers ability to even out the total line this NFL season has been downright uncanny. Last week, eight games went “over” the total and eight stayed “under”. That means that over the past eight weeks just two more games have stayed under the total as opposed to going over for a combined record of 56-58-3. For the second-straight week I posted a 2-1 record on my top three plays to improve to 21-17-1 on the year. With just three weeks left in the regular season I went back to work digging into all the facts and figures for this Sunday’s matchups to try and once again unearth the value in the total line.

Week 14 NFL Teasers Advice: Best Three for Basic Strategy Teases
by George J Monroy - 12/4/2012

The NFL is winding down with only a few weeks left to play in the season. Many teams are still fighting for their playoff lives, but the vast majority of them have already had their post season fates settled. So, over the next four weeks, we should be able to find some excellent gambling opportunities betting teams that have the playoffs on the line versus teams that are essentially just playing to finish off the season. If we are lucky, we should be able to find some excellent basic strategy teaser opportunities to end the season. Here are Week 14’s three best basic strategy teasers.

NFL Totals Betting: Week 14 Over and Under Predictions
by Dave Schwab - 12/4/2012

Looking at last week’s results in the NFL, the “under” once again had the advantage with nine of the 16 games staying under the total, but the line has remained razor sharp over the past seven weeks with 48 games going “over”, 50 games staying under and three games ending as a “push”. I finally got back to my winning ways last week with my top three picks at 2-1 to improve to 16-12-1 over the past 10 weeks. It was back to work early this week to dig deep into all of Sunday’s matchups to try and unearth the value in the total line.

NFL Week 13 Player Props, Leaders Odds and Betting Picks
by Alan Matthews - 11/29/2012

I rather like Bovada’s Week 13 futures specials rather than what happens just this week, so let’s look at a few of those. I’m always ready to jump on those head-coaching props, and the site lists three on whether they will return next season: the Jets’ Rex Ryan, Lions’ Jim Schwartz and Cardinals’ Ken Whisenhunt. Certainly New York and Detroit had playoff expectations this season. I’m sure Arizona will say it did, too, but it was kidding itself with the quarterbacks on the roster.

Week 13 NFL Teasers Advice: Best Three for Basic Strategy Teases
by George J Monroy - 11/29/2012

Welcome back to Doc’s Sports for another round of basic strategy teaser analysis. Last week basic strategy teasers went 4-1. They are 51-8 on the season and have been winning at 86 percent rate. The teasers are also producing a 50 cent profit for every dollar bet on the proposition and have been excellent value wagers over the course of the season. Here is a look at the best three basic strategy teaser plays for Week 13.

Buffalo Bills running back C.J. Spiller

NFL Totals Betting: Week 13 Over and Under Predictions
by Dave Schwab - 11/28/2012

For the second straight week in the NFL, the “under” play had a slight advantage at 8-7-1. However, over the course of the last six weeks the oddsmakers have continually nailed these lines with with 41 games going “over,” 41 games staying under and three games ending as a “push”. I came up short last week with my top three picks at 1-2 to fall to 14-11-1 over the past nine weeks. This means it is back to work digging deep into this week’s matchups to try and unearth the value in the total line.

The game is slated to get underway at 8:20 p.m. (ET) and it will be broadcast nationally on NBC.

NFL Week 12 Player Props, Leaders Odds and Betting Picks
by Alan Matthews - 11/23/2012

After the Thanksgiving Day results, you can probably rule out the New York Jets and Detroit Lions from the playoffs – I wonder about the futures of coaches Rex Ryan and Jim Schwartz (with his boneheaded challenge, although it is an incredibly stupid rule). Thus, I would say the only teams to officially forget about the postseason are the two mentioned above, the Eagles, Panthers, Rams, Browns, Jaguars, Raiders and Chiefs. With that said, let’s look at some Sportsbook.ag props on potential playoff chances for a few teams.

New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning.

NFL Predictions: Packers at Giants Betting Odds and Picks
by Trevor Whenham - 11/21/2012

At the base, this game is a showdown between the team that won the NFC last year and the team that should have won it. It’s also a chance for the Packers to avenge the ugly loss that cost them their shot at the Super Bowl that virtually everyone thought that they would win. More significantly for now and beyond, it’s a contest between two teams very capable of winning the NFC this year, and it will therefore be a good measuring stick of where both teams are at and what we might expect in the last five weeks of the season.

Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy

Weekly Philadelphia Eagles Betting Picks: Week 12 vs. Panthers
by Dave Schwab - 11/21/2012

In a battle between two teams desperately looking for a win, the Carolina Panthers and the Philadelphia Eagles are set to clash this Monday night at Lincoln Financial Field. Kickoff for this NFC Conference matchup is scheduled for 8:30 p.m. (ET) and the game will be broadcast nationally on ESPN.

NFL Week 11 Player Props, Leaders Odds and Betting Picks
by Alan Matthews - 11/16/2012

If you are in a fantasy football league and own both Cincinnati Bengals receiver A.J. Green and Houston Texans running back Arian Foster, you no doubt are in first place. Green and Foster have two pretty incredible touchdown streaks going right now: Green has caught a touchdown pass in an NFL-high eight straight games while Foster has scored any sort of touchdown (rushing and receiving) in a league-high 11 straight games.

NFL Odds: Ravens at Steelers Betting Predictions and Pro Football Picks
by Trevor Whenham - 11/15/2012

There are a lot of good rivalries in the NFL. Over the last five or six years, though, the list of rivalries that have matched the wars that the Ravens and Steelers have played is very short. These teams really don’t like each other, and they have had a stranglehold on the AFC North. As is so often the case when these teams meet, this game will have a big say in which team ultimately wins the division.

Green Bay QB Aaron Rodgers

NFL Totals Betting: Week 11 Over and Under Predictions
by Dave Schwab - 11/14/2012

Parity in the NFL “over/under” line results continued for the fourth straight week as during this time frame 28 games have gone over, 25 games have stayed under and two games ended in a “push”. My top three picks last week took a downward turn to 1-2, leaving me at 11-8-1 over the past seven weeks and barely over .500 at 14-12-1 on the year. I have been back at it hard this week in an effort to turn things around with a few rock-solid winners for Week 11 in the NFL.

by Dave Schwab - 11/14/2012

The Philadelphia Eagles and the Washington Redskins renew a long-standing NFC East rivalry this Sunday afternoon when the two teams clash at FedEx Field in a battle to get out of the basement in the division. The game is set to kickoff at 1 p.m. (ET) and it will be broadcast on FOX.

Houston Texans fullback James Casey

NFL Predictions: Texans at Bears Odds and Betting Picks
by Trevor Whenham - 11/8/2012

If you’d looked on the schedule before the season started, this game probably wouldn’t have jumped out as what it has turned out to be — the game of the year to this point in the season. At 7-1 the Texans are the class of the AFC. Chicago, with the same record, is behind only Atlanta in the NFC, and is in a surprisingly strong position in their division.

San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers

NFL Week 10 Player Props, Leaders Odds and Betting Picks
by Alan Matthews - 11/8/2012

With all due respect to Andrew Luck, the rookie story of the NFL for the past few weeks has been Tampa Bay Bucs running back Doug Martin, a k a the “Muscle Hamster.” The Bucs drafted the former Boise State star at No. 31 overall in this year’s draft, and it’s looking like the best pick of them all (I don’t count Luck or Robert Griffin III because they were locked into the top two picks). Martin had a nice opener for the Bucs with 95 yards on 24 carries as Tampa Bay beat Carolina.

NFL Totals Betting: Week 10 Over and Under Predictions
by Dave Schwab - 11/7/2012

Over the past three weeks of the NFL season, the oddsmakers have done a phenomenal job at setting the total line with 20 games going “over,” 19 games staying “under” and two games ending in a “push”. My top three picks last week went an even 1-1-1 to leave me at 10-6-1 over the past six weeks and 13-11-1 on the year. We all know that weather becomes more of a factor once November rolls around, so I am going out on a limb to forecast a three-game sweep for Week 10.

Weekly Philadelphia Eagles Betting Picks: Week 10 vs. Dallas
by Dave Schwab - 11/7/2012

The Dallas Cowboys and the Philadelphia Eagles clash this Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field in a crucial NFC East showdown that will most likely mean the end of the line for one of these teams’ season. The game is set to get underway at 4:25 p.m. (ET) and it will be broadcast nationally by FOX.

NFL Week 9 Player Props, Leaders Odds and Betting Picks
by Alan Matthews - 11/2/2012

My first Week 9 props specials story featured a look at the futures of Cowboys coach Jason Garrett and Eagles coach Andy Reid. And it’s no coincidence that the job status of both is in question because their starting quarterbacks are struggling. So let’s look at a few Bovada specials on Tony Romo and Michael Vick.

NFL Odds: Cowboys at Falcons Predictions and Betting Picks
by Trevor Whenham - 11/1/2012

There is only one unbeaten team, and the Falcons have shown few signs of losing any time soon. They have played a couple of close games — strangely, at home against two of the weakest teams they have faced in Oakland and Carolina — but they have always found a way to get it done. This is a huge game for them — if they win here then the path to 11-0 or even 13-0 is relatively smooth. With each win they also come closer to all but wrapping up the NFC South title.

Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill

NFL Totals Betting: Week 9 Over and Under Predictions
by Dave Schwab - 10/31/2012

Once again, the oddsmakers split the uprights on the total line in the NFL with seven games going “over” the total in Week 8 and seven staying “under”. My current hot streak finally cooled with a 0-2-1 record last week, dropping me down to 9-5-1 over the past five weeks. The poor showing also leaves me at just 12-10-1 on my top NFL picks for the entire 2012 NFL season, but I am looking for a big second-half run.

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees

NFL Week 8 Player Props, Leaders Odds and Predictions
by Alan Matthews - 10/26/2012

The marquee individual matchup of Week 8, even though the players will never be on the field together, is when Drew Brees and Peyton Manning face off in Denver on Sunday night. Clearly both are Canton-bound five years after they hang up their cleats, and this is the first time they have played since the Saints beat Manning’s Colts in the Super Bowl in Miami three seasons ago.

Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning

NFL Picks: Saints at Broncos Odds and Betting Predictions
by Trevor Whenham - 10/25/2012

This game really almost has it all — strong offenses, marquee superstars, public interest, and a real potential for thrills and excitement. The only thing holding it back from being a classic is that neither team is reliably playing in particularly good form. Both are coming off pretty solid comeback efforts in their last time out — historically so in the case of the Broncos — but neither squad is nearly as reliable as it would like to be, and neither has nearly the record it expected at this point. I’m not complaining — I am looking forward to this one as much as the next guy.

NFL Totals Betting: Week 8 Over and Under Predictions
by Dave Schwab - 10/25/2012

The oddsmakers nailed the NFL total lines right on the head in Week 7, with six games going “over” the total and six staying “under” and one game ending as a “push” My current hot streak continued for a fourth-straight week and I am now 9-3 in my last 12 top plays on the total line. This also helped to improve my overall record on the year to 12-9.

by Dave Schwab - 10/25/2012

The undefeated Atlanta Falcons will look to pick up where they left off before last week’s bye when they head to Lincoln Financial Field this Sunday afternoon for a NFC tilt against the Philadelphia Eagles. The game is set to get underway at 1 p.m. (EST) and it will be broadcast nationally by FOX.

Patriots Wide Receiver Wes Welker

NFL Week 7 Player Props, Leaders Odds and Betting Predictions
by Alan Matthews - 10/19/2012

Chicago Bears teammates Lance Briggs (linebacker) and Charles Tillman (cornerback) set an NFL record in Chicago’s last outing by each returning an interception for a touchdown for the second straight game. No teammates had ever scored defensive TDs in back-to-back games. In a weird coincidence, Briggs and Tillman both did it from 36 yards last time out vs. Jacksonville (first game was at Dallas). Tillman has a franchise-record eight defensive scores in his career, and the Bears lead the NFL with five interception returns for touchdowns this season. Coach Lovie Smith stresses forcing turnovers, and the Bears have now recorded 30 defensive touchdowns under Smith.

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger

NFL Predictions: Steelers at Bengals Odds and Betting Picks
by Trevor Whenham - 10/18/2012

There are, incredibly, only two teams in the AFC with records above .500 through six weeks of the NFL season. That means that the Bengals at 3-3 and the Steelers at 2-3 are certainly not out of the chase for postseason glory despite sluggish starts. The Ravens are well ahead in the AFC North at 5-1, but with two huge injuries on defense there is hope for these squads, and that hope will be fueled by a win here.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Josh Freeman

NFL Totals Betting: Week 7 Over and Under Predictions
by Dave Schwab - 10/17/2012

The “over” on the total line was the strong play last week in the NFL with 10 of the 14 games on the slate going over the closing line. A perfect 3-0 showing in Week 6 raised my three-week record to a profitable 7-2 on my top three total line plays and finally took me over .500 for the season at 10-8.

Atlanta Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez

NFL Week 6 Player Props, Leaders Odds and Betting Picks
by Alan Matthews - 10/12/2012

It was a decent Week 5 in terms of player/team props recommendations. I hit on Peyton Manning at +120 to have more passing yards in his matchup with Tom Brady and also on the fact that Mark Sanchez wouldn’t be benched in the Monday night game vs. Houston (-140) and that the Jets would finish with less than 320.5 yards (-115) vs. the Texans.

NFL Week 6 Bovada Specials Props Odds and Betting Predictions
by Alan Matthews - 10/12/2012

Back in mid-August, I wrote my 2012 NFL Rookie of the Year props preview story, and, to no surprise, No. 1 overall pick Andrew Luck of the Indianapolis Colts was the 5/2 favorite at Bovada. Well, the site has released an updated list of Offensive Rookie of the Year odds heading into Week 6, and Luck is again the favorite at 5/4, but he’s joined there by Washington QB Robert Griffin III.

NFL Predictions: Packers at Texans Betting Odds and Picks
by Trevor Whenham - 10/10/2012

When the NFL schedule for the season was released earlier in the year, this game stood out as one of the best on tap. Last year the Packers were the class of the NFL — at least until the playoffs started. The Texans were also very good and were clearly only going to get better. In the eyes of many it was going to be a Super Bowl preview.

The Detroit Lions come off their bye week and will be looking for fresh start when they travel to Lincoln Financial Field this Sunday afternoon for a NFC matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles. The game is slated to kickoff at 1 p.m. (ET) and it will be broadcast locally on FOX.

Broncos Quarterback Payton Manning

NFL Totals Betting: Week 6 Over and Under Predictions
by Dave Schwab - 10/10/2012

The total line in the NFL remained fairly even for the second-straight week with eight of the 14 games staying “under” the closing line. I was also on the plus side of my top three picks for a second-straight week with a 2-1 record. After a very slow start, my year-to-date record has now neared .500 at 7-8.

NFL Week 5 Quarterback Props Specials with Odds and Picks
by Alan Matthews - 10/5/2012

It’s a quarterback-heavy specials menu for Week 5 NFL player props at Bovada. And fittingly, a few of the props involve the marquee individual battle of the weekend: Peyton Manning vs. Tom Brady in a matchup of future Hall of Famers with a combined six NFL MVP awards and four Super Bowl rings.

NFL Week 5 Additional Props Specials with Betting Odds and Predictions
by Alan Matthews - 10/5/2012

Back around Aug. 21, I previewed the NFL MVP race for this season. And now that the league is at its quarter-pole (all teams but Pittsburgh and Indianapolis have played at least four games), let’s look at Bovada’s re-posted odds for that award. Green Bay’s Aaron Rodgers, the 2011 MVP, was the 11/2 favorite at the site before the season. I wrote then that “I don’t like him on this prop because there’s almost no way he can match last year’s numbers, just as there’s no way Green Bay will finish 15-1 again.”

San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers

NFL Predictions: Chargers at Saints Betting Odds and Picks
by Trevor Whenham - 10/4/2012

Drew Brees is about to break an impressive record. The last time he played a game without throwing a touchdown pass was Oct. 4, 2009. Sunday will be his 48th game since then — three full seasons. If he scores through the air in this one he will break the record set by Johnny Unitas way back in 1960. The fact that he has a chance to break the record against the team that gave up on him probably has some added significance. Or at least it would if there weren’t far more pressing matters on his mind.

Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton

NFL Totals Betting: Week 5 Over and Under Predictions
by Dave Schwab - 10/3/2012

The oddsmakers were on the money in Week 4 of the 2012 NFL regular season when it comes to the total line, with seven games going “over” the total and eight staying “under”. It took awhile, but I finally got back to my winning ways with a 2-1 record on my top three total line plays. This raised my record on the year to 5-7.

Darren McFadden of the Oakland Raiders

NFL Week 4 Player Props Specials With Odds and Betting Picks
by Alan Matthews - 9/28/2012

Not a great Week 3 in terms of my running back choices on the NFL special props. I put the kibosh on Buffalo’s C.J. Spiller as he left the Bills’ win over Cleveland early with sprained left shoulder. Unfortunately, he exited after carrying four times for 16 yards, thus missing the total of “over/under” 5.0 yards per carry that Bovada had set. I recommended over and still have no doubt Spiller would have done so if he stayed in the game. That result should help to keep Spiller under 5.2 ypc for the season, which I recommended. The former Clemson star was originally thought to miss a few weeks but could play Sunday.

Arizona Cardinals QB Kevin Kolb

NFL Week 4 Team Props Specials with Betting Odds and Predictions
by Alan Matthews - 9/28/2012

That the Houston Texans and Atlanta Falcons are two of the three remaining NFL teams at 3-0 entering Week 4 isn’t a big surprise (it’s the fewest unbeaten clubs through three weeks since 2002 realignment). That the Arizona Cardinals are the third is a shocker. The old adage is that a 0-3 club will not make the playoffs, and, in fact, that has happened just three times since 1990 and not since the 1998 Bills.

Oakland Raiders kicker Sebastian Janikowski

NFL Totals Betting: Week 4 Over and Under Predictions
by Dave Schwab - 9/26/2012

The 2012 NFL regular season has three weeks of games in the books, and the total line has evened itself out with 23 games going “over,” 24 games staying “under” and one game ending in a “push”. So give credit to the oddsmakers for bringing a sharp edge to this line. For the third straight week, I posted a 1-2 record on my top picks for a less than stellar start to the season after going 27-19-2 last year.

The New York Giants and the Philadelphia Eagles are back in prime time this Sunday night at Lincoln Financial field for a huge early-season showdown in the NFC East between two 2-1 teams. The game is slated to get underway at 8:20 p.m. (EST) and it will be broadcast nationally on NBC.

Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford

NFL Week 3 Offensive Special Props and Betting Picks
by Alan Matthews - 9/21/2012

Not a ton of special quarterback props at Bovada this week, but I would be remiss if I didn’t hit on at least a few QB props every week of the NFL season. The Giants’ Eli Manning threw for 510 yards in a Week 2 win over Tampa Bay, and we already know that Eli won’t become the first player in NFL history to throw for 500 yards in back-to-back games as New York played Thursday night and Manning threw for 288 in a big win over Carolina.

NFL Week 3 Running Back Special Props Odds and Betting Predictions
by Alan Matthews - 9/21/2012

Yes, running backs appear to have become nearly a dime a dozen in the pass-heavy NFL, but there are a handful of props on tailbacks with which I would like to start my NFL Week 3 specials recommendations. Let’s start with Buffalo’s C.J. Spiller, who is finally living up to his first-round hype out of Clemson in 2010.

NFL Odds: Patriots at Ravens Predictions and Pro Football Betting Picks
by Trevor Whenham - 9/19/2012

The third week of the NFL season brings us a rematch of the AFC Championship Game last year. New England won that game to head to the Super Bowl, but Baltimore was the better team for much of the day and should probably have come out on top.

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck

NFL Totals Betting: Week 3 Over and Under Predictions
by Dave Schwab - 9/19/2012

The 2012 NFL regular season rolls into Week 3, and with regards to the total line 17 of the 32 games played have gone “over” the total. This equates to 53 percent of the games, which is not much of an edge. I once again missed the mark on two of my three picks, so it is back to the drawing board for this week’s matchups.

Cincinnati Bengals BenJarvus Green-Ellis

NFL Week 2 Additional Special Betting Props and Picks
by Alan Matthews - 9/14/2012

Did you know that the 32 teams in the NFL combined for 791 points in Week 1, the second-most points in a week in league history? The record is 837 in Week 12 of 2008. Five clubs – the Jets, Ravens, Bears, Falcons and Redskins topped the 40-point mark. Never on an opening week has that many teams scored at least 40. Atlanta doing so wasn’t a huge shocker with all that skill position talent. But the Jets, Ravens and Bears used to be defensive teams and the Redskins started a rookie quarterback. Yeah, the NFL is now an offensively-driven league.

by Trevor Whenham - 9/13/2012

There are a lot of things that will be a factor in the outcome of the Lions and 49ers battle for early NFC supremacy on Sunday night in San Francisco. One thing that isn’t a factor despite the press it is getting, though, is the contrived rivalry between these coaches.

by Dave Schwab - 9/12/2012

The Baltimore Ravens will pay a visit to Lincoln Financial Field this Sunday afternoon to square off against Philadelphia in the Eagles home opener. The game is slated to get underway at 1 p.m. (ET) and it will be broadcast locally on CBS. This betting preview is part of an ongoing series that started with Game 1 of the preseason where I take an in-depth look at each and every Eagles game this year and offer a free NFL pick using Doc’s Sports Unit Betting System. The point is to show that specialization can be a successful sports betting strategy.

NFL Odds: Steelers at Broncos Betting Predictions and Picks
by Trevor Whenham - 9/6/2012

Football is the ultimate team sport, but on Sunday night in Denver it will be all about one man. Some guy named Peyton will be back on the field after a forced year off due to injury. Not only that, but the guy who was identified with one team more than anyone other than Tom Brady or Ray Lewis is now on a different team in a different time zone.

NFL Totals Betting: Week 1 Over and Under Predictions
by Dave Schwab - 9/5/2012

The 2012 NFL regular season gets underway tonight with the Dallas Cowboys paying a visit to MetLife Stadium to square-off against the defending Super Bowl Champion New York Giants in a classic NFC East showdown. This matchup sets up as a defensive battle that should probably stay “under” the total, but I am turning to Sunday’s slate of games to uncover this week’s top three plays on the total line.

NFL Picks: Cowboys at Giants Odds and Betting Predictions
by Trevor Whenham - 9/3/2012

These two rivals are serious contenders for the NFC East this year — as they are almost every year — so this would be a big game in any situation. The particular circumstances here only add to the excitement. For starters, this is the first game of the NFL season, so it marks the end of the long, almost interminable wait for real football action for fans and bettors. It’s also the first real game the Giants have played since their surprising Super Bowl Championship, so it the first chance for fans to properly welcome them home.
