It's a good way to put the past season to bed and begin the long march to the next championship. This year we have a team we saw play yesterday as the favorites to win it next year, but it isn't the current champion. What other interesting situations arise in the futures odds? Let's take a look (all odds are from BetOnline): http://www.docsports.com/current/super-bowl-predictions.html NFL Handicapping: Denver Broncos Outlook after Winning Super Bowl http://www.docsports.com/2016/nfl-handicapping-denver-broncos-outlook-after-winning-super-bowl-499.html John Elway has a few days to enjoy what he and his team have accomplished this year and then it's right back to work. And there is a whole lot of work to do - and it won't be easy. We often see the defending Super Bowl champions named as favorites for the next year as soon as futures odds are posted the day after the Super Bowl. http://www.docsports.com/2016/nfl-handicapping-denver-broncos-outlook-after-winning-super-bowl-499.html NCAA Basketball Betting 3-Point Play: Three Interesting Feb. 9 Opening Lines http://www.docsports.com/2016/ncaa-basketball-betting-3-point-play-three-interesting-feb-9-opening-lines-816.html Villanova has been a very good basketball program for many years, so I was surprised to hear that the Wildcats had never been the No. 1 team in the Associated Press poll until Monday. They jumped up from No. 3, with both previous No. 1 Oklahoma and No. 2 North Carolina losing last week (Heels did it twice). The Wildcats had been ranked No. 2 seven times, most recently in the final poll of last season. Of course, Villanova won the 1985 national title in upset fashion over heavy favorite Georgetown, but the AP doesn't do a poll after the season. http://www.docsports.com/2016/ncaa-basketball-betting-3-point-play-three-interesting-feb-9-opening-lines-816.html NBA Odds: Tuesday, February 9 2016 Opening Line Report and Handicapping http://www.docsports.com/2016/nba-odds-tuesday-february-9-opening-line-report-handicapping-934.html Need a point guard or power forward/center? The Milwaukee Bucks apparently are open for business and are happy to take offers on guard Michael Carter-Williams, whom the team acquired last year at the trade deadline from Philadelphia, and big man Greg Monroe, whom the team just got in free agency this summer. http://www.docsports.com/2016/nba-odds-tuesday-february-9-opening-line-report-handicapping-934.html New York Knicks NBA Handicapping: Betting Impact of Fisher Firing http://www.docsports.com/2016/new-york-knicks-nba-handicapping-betting-impact-fisher-firing-210.html In a move that hardly qualifies as shocking, the New York Knicks have decided that Derek Fisher no longer deserves to coach their team. He has been fired before the all-star break in his second season. What is shocking, though, is that the Knicks ever thought that hiring Fisher was a good idea in the first place - and that he managed to last as long as he did. http://www.docsports.com/2016/new-york-knicks-nba-handicapping-betting-impact-fisher-firing-210.html All-Sports Expert Betting Tips to Help Win Cash this Week http://www.docsports.com/2016/all-sports-expert-betting-tips-help-win-cash-this-week-409.html The 2015 football season officially came to an end with Denver's upset victory against Carolina in Super Bowl 50, but that game marks the relative beginning of an entire year of betting action across any number of sports betting events. One of the tricks to earning a positive return on betting a wide spectrum of different events is to look for a solid inside edge and then pounce on the opportunity. http://www.docsports.com/2016/all-sports-expert-betting-tips-help-win-cash-this-week-409.html Case of the Mondays: It was Miller Time-Not the Panthers' Time http://www.docsports.com/2016/case-mondays-149.html Just about everyone in the world had the Carolina Panthers-six-point favorites-beating the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl 50. How did that work out? Not well! Von Miller and the Denver defense befuddled Cam Newton and the Carolina offense for almost all of 60 minutes on Sunday. And "befuddled" may be putting it nicely. The Panthers turned the ball over an insurmountable four times in a surprising 24-10 loss. http://www.docsports.com/2016/case-mondays-149.html Los Angeles Kings at Boston Bruins Free NHL Picks & Predictions 2-9-2016 http://www.docsports.com/free-picks/nhl-hockey/2016/Los-Angeles-Kings-at-Boston-Bruins-Free-NHL-Picks-Predictions-2-9-2016-929.html The Los Angeles Kings will match up with the Boston Bruins on Tuesday, February 9, 2016.
