2010 College Football Predictions: Big Ten Conference Odds and Betting Picks
by Robert Ferringo - 9/1/2010
When Dick Stanzi is what qualifies as an "experienced veteran quarterback" in your league, you know that your league is in trouble. But that's how things are rolling this year in the Big Ten, as quarterback turnover is the one thing that could undercut what could be a stellar season for the nation's most overrated conference. Only six of 11 starting quarterbacks from 2009 are back with their respective teams this year, and just two - Iowa's Stanzi and Minnesota's Adam Weber - are three-year starters.

NFL Predictions: AFC South Odds and Preview with Football Betting Picks
by Robert Ferringo - 8/28/2010
Peyton Manning continues to lead the division-favorite Colts, who have been instilled at -200 to win the AFC South. However, some books are even offering odds to win the AFC South that include a wager on the Colts at -175 or a wager on any other team at +145. Considering that Indianapolis has claimed the division crown in six of the last seven years it would be awful hard, even at plus-money, to take a stab at the other three AFC South competitors stepping up and knocking off the champs.

NFL Predictions: AFC East Odds and Preview with Football Betting Picks
by Robert Ferringo - 8/28/2010
A quick look at the odds to win the 2010 AFC East show that New England is still the head of the class, with posted odds of even-money to take the divisional crown. Now, on one hand that may be less of a projection and more of just an assumption by the books that they will get the most action from the public on Tom Brady and the Patriots almost out of habit. But on the other hand, the Pats did win the East five straight years from 2003 to 2007, and they finished in the top spot last year as well making it six in seven seasons.

NFL Predictions: NFC South Odds and Preview with Football Betting Picks
by Robert Ferringo - 8/27/2010
The NFC South has never had a back-to-back division title winner. However, that hasn't stopped the books from posting New Orleans as a solid -180 favorite to win the crown again this season. Atlanta is an appealing and trendy underdog to knock off the Saints, and they have been posted at +200. The odds to win the NFC South for Tampa Bay and Carolina are longshots, at +1500 and +600, respectively.

NFL Predictions: AFC West Odds and Preview with Football Betting Picks
by Robert Ferringo - 8/25/2010
Over the last half-decade the AFC West has been a bit like the Island of Dr. Moreau, with San Diego playing the role of the good doctor while Oakland, Kansas City and Denver are a bit like the Beast Folk: they resemble football teams but are too grotesque to actually be considered authentic.

NFL Predictions: AFC North Odds and Preview with Football Betting Picks
by Robert Ferringo - 8/25/2010
All hail the last old school division in football. While pass-wacky spread offenses are all of the rage on the gridiron, from the Pop Warner fields to the Super Bowl champions, the AFC North is taking the contrarian's position. The four teams in the AFC North are all rough, rugged, punch-you-in-the-face-and-then-kick-your-teeth-in-while-you-are-on-the-ground teams that play the type of physical, violent brand of football that would make Jim Brown and the Steel Curtain smile.

Advice for Betting NFL Totals
by Robert Ferringo - 8/24/2010
When it comes to betting on the National Football League I'm sure that most of you have tried to stare down the oddsmakers, going toe-to-toe with those bloodthirsty, integer-wielding wraiths, in an attempt to beat the books and turn a profit. I'll bet that you've tried it all: favorites, underdogs, teasers, parlays, crazy trends and wacky systems, or even coin-flipping to help you get ahead. I'll also bet that none of it worked on any consistent basis.

2010 College Football Predictions: Pac-10 Conference Odds and Betting Picks
by Robert Ferringo - 8/13/2010
Like Medusa, the Pac-10 is somewhat powerless once the head has been chopped off. With USC embroiled in scandal, suspension, coaching change, and attrition, there is a power vacuum in West Coast football. The mighty Trojans have fallen, and this year will be a free-for-all to claim the vacated throne.

2010 College Football Predictions: Big East Conference Odds and Betting Picks
by Robert Ferringo - 8/12/2010
If the Big 12 needs some inspiration they can look no further than the Big East. The Big 12 was raided this summer, losing Nebraska to the Big Ten (starting in 2011), with rumors of more sweeping changes to come. Realignment was the buzzword for the offseason, bringing back memories of a not-so-long-ago conference shift that altered the landscape of East Coast football. That was a maneuver back in 2003 where Miami, Boston College and Virginia Tech defected from the Big East to the rival ACC.
