  • Broncos-Raiders Winner Tops AFC West

    By Charles Jay The Oakland Raiders are fulfilling the expectations of many people who felt like they could be the champions of the AFC West, especially with the Denver Broncos having to replace their starting quarterback. Now they are literally in a three-way tie with Kansas City at the top of the division as they […]

  • Titans See Familiar Face in San Diego

    By Charles Jay The San Diego Chargers have been one of those teams that, with apologies to something Bill Parcells once said that wasn’t exactly insightful, better than their record. On Sunday they will try to get back into the playoff race as they play host to the Tennessee Titans in a game that is […]

  • Let ‘Em Wear Skirts

    By Frankie the Fan It’s getting harder and harder to watch the NFL nowadays. They are ruining the game by trying to take all of the violence out it, and that is the beauty of the game. That’s why we watch it, and the players, the league and the refs are trying to turn the […]

  • NFL Who’s Hot and Who’s Not – Week 9

    NFL Who’s Hot and Who’s Not – Week 9 The NFL regular season has reached the halfway point heading into Week 9 and it is pretty apparent which two teams belong at the very top of the ‘hot list’ both on the field and at the betting window at BetAnySports. Much was made about the […]

  • Vikings’ Pass Rush Targets Cutler

    By Charles Jay Now that the Chicago Bears have lost their productive quarterback, they have to turn to one who has a rather shaky future as they get ready to play against one of the league’s best defenses. Of course, we are talking about their NFC North rivals, the Minnesota Vikings, who visit them in […]

  • Cowboys-Eagles For NFC East Lead

    By Charles Jay It goes without saying that both the Philadelphia Eagles and the Dallas Cowboys have surprised an awful lot of people. And where they are right now would have been a surprise to most NFL observers, even if they did not know they were both going to have to use rookie quarterbacks as […]

  • Falcons Try to Pressure Banged-Up Pack

    By Charles Jay The Atlanta Falcons are looking to bounce back from consecutive losses that could conceivably have gone the other way.

  • Osweiler Returns as Broncos Greet Texans

    By Charles Jay Suffice it to say that it won’t be a “Texas-style” welcome mat thrown out there by the Denver Broncos on Monday night at Sports Authority Field at Mile High. The Houston Texans have not fared too well on the road, and there are all kinds of back stories in effect as this […]

  • Kaepernick Tries Again in Niners-Bucs Clash

    By Charles Jay Colin Kaepernick did not operate very well from the pocket in his first outing of the season for the San Francisco 49ers, but we know that we have seen better from him in the recent past. He will get another start for his team as they face off against the Tampa Bay […]

  • McCoy “Limited” as Bills Visit Dolphins

    By Charles Jay The Buffalo Bills are on a major uptick right now; that much is very very clear. And it is perhaps not a coincidence that it has taken place after head coach Rex Ryan fired his offensive coordinator. But now the cornerstone of this newly-tweaked offense will not be available for the team […]

  • Packers Could Use Home Cookin’ vs. Bears

    By Charles Jay The Chicago Bears have been getting some pretty good production out of quarterback Brian Hoyer, who has put up good numbers.

  • The Good Ol’ Days

    Part of my job here at askthebookie.com is writing one column a week explaining the goings on in the sports world and sportsbetting world, but it’s getting harder and harder to do so.

  • NFL Who’s Hot and Who’s Not

    Minnesota remains the only unbeaten team in the NFL at 5-0 both straight-up and against the spread coming off a bye week, but the hottest team both on the field and at the betting window at BetAnySports could be the 5-1 Dallas Cowboys.

  • Jets Try to Get it Together vs. Cardinals

    By Charles Jay The New York Jets are not in great shape at the moment, from whichever angle you want to look at it from.

  • Colts Seek Tie For Division Lead vs. Texans

    By Charles Jay Once again, the AFC South is very much up for grabs. At least three teams are very much in the race, and two of them are going to be getting together on Sunday night, as NBC televises the game between the Indianapolis Colts and the Houston Texans from NRG Stadium in Houston. […]

  • Ravens Do Shakeup Before Meeting with Giants

    By Charles Jay The New York Giants absolutely need a shot in the arm as they line up on Sunday to face off against the Baltimore Ravens, but it is the Ravens who made the big coaching move during the week, in an effort to lend a little spark to the attack. We’ll see if […]

  • Broncos Have QB But Not Coach vs. SD

    By Charles Jay The Denver Broncos lost their first game of the season this past Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons, and in the time since they have gone through a little turbulence.

  • Panthers Face Bucs With Backup QB Monday

    By Charles Jay The Carolina Panthers would like to have gotten off to a better start than the 1-3 record that they currently sport. But they’ve done this before and gone on to win the NFC South title (in 2013, for example). Now, coming off a performance that should have made them very angered, they […]

  • Giants Getting a TD vs. Packers

    By Charles Jay Well, the New York Giants were certainly disappointed in their efforts to move the football against the Minnesota Vikings last Monday night, and they’d like to think they have a more inviting secondary awaiting them as they get ready to face off against the Green Bay Packers in a game scheduled for […]

  • Cards’ Stanton in Driver’s Seat vs. 49ers

    By Charles Jay The Arizona Cardinals haven’t looked that good so far this season, and Carson Palmer has been no small part of it. Palmer, the former Heisman Trophy winner who was a bonafide MVP candidate last season, has picked up where he left off after his disastrous playoff game vs. Carolina, committing six turnovers […]

  • Giants Face Vikes with Banged-Up 2ndary

    By Charles Jay The New York Giants probably should be undefeated right now, but they did the same thing they did all too many times last season – blow a lead in the second half. So they come into Monday night’s game against the Minnesota Vikings with a 2-1 record, which doesn’t put them in […]

  • Steelers Host Chiefs in Angry Mood

    By Charles Jay Could the Pittsburgh Steelers have played much worse than they did last week against the Philadelphia Eagles? We think not. Ben Roethlisberger completed 11 of 26 passes in the second half, as his team compiled just 98 yards in the final 30 minutes and saw a 13-3 deficit turn into a 34-3 […]

  • Dolphins Seek Out Ground Game vs. Bengals

    By Charles Jay To say the least, the results have been a little disappointing for the Cincinnati Bengals this season, and as they move into the fourth game of the season, the defending AFC North champions have won just a single game, and that came by a one-point margin. On Thursday night they will take […]

  • Belichick is “Stickin’ It” to Goodell

    By: Frankie the Fan You have to give Bill Belichick credit for the way he is “sticking it” to Roger Goodell.
