By Knup There are many things to consider before you place a futures bet on the NFL Super Bowl, and one of them is how crazy the NFL season really can be. Injuries seem to pop up all over the place, and many times it comes down to watching a team just get hot at the right time. Take the Baltimore Ravens for example from last season. Almost no one really expected the Ravens to be serious contenders at about the halfway mark of the season, but they turned it around, got hot, and went on to win the 2013 Super Bowl. Now, the new ...

By Knup I talked recently about the quarterback controversy and battle that was going to be held by the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. The Irish lost Everett Golson as they decided to dismiss him from the team and the school, something that was talked about more than just a little bit in the sports news recently. While Golson is out, it means that the Fighting Irish need to find an answer at the quarterback position. What did this mean exact...
By Edward23 A Yankee legend returns to the Bronx when manager Don Mattingly and the Dodgers begin a brief two-game set with the Yankees. Mattingly played his entire 14-year career with the Yankees and was on New York's coaching staff before leaving for Los Angeles six years ago. According to the oddsmakers at America's Bookie, the Dodgers are at -101, the Yankees are at -109 and the total is set at 8. The Yankees had a much-needed day off Monday after posting a 4-6 mark on a tough West Coast road trip. ...

By AK We are down to only a few more nights before one team is hailed a dethroner or one team becomes a defender. As we get closer to the season’s magnum opus, let’s take a step back and put the two contending teams face-to-face for a little nitpicking. The athletic versus the fundamental play While the defending champs Miami Heat aren’t exactly the youngest team in the league, their style of play fits a team with fresher legs and younger knees. With high flyers like reigning MVP LeBron James and the former 2006 Finals MVP Dwyane Wade, plus Ray Allen’s impec...
By Scott The 2013 U.S. Open will be hosted at the Merion Golf Club for the first time since 1981. The par 70 (6996 Yards) course is the shortest course for a PGA major since 2004. There has been a lot of rain this week on the course and the course will be soft, which will make it easier on the golfers. Playing at Merion should be interesting because only 11 players have played competitive rounds on the course. Most players will have never played a competitive round at Merion in the past. This week putting is going to be the biggest factor, but I also think that scrambling will play a ro...

By Scott The Quicken Loans 400 will run this Sunday at the Michigan International Speedway in Brooklyn, Michigan. This is the 1st of two Sprint Cup races in Michigan and with drivers jockeying for position in the driver standings it should be an exciting race. 2013 Quicken Loans 400 Betting Odds Bet on the race at America's Bookie Jimmie Johnson 4/1 Kasey Kahne 7/1 Matt Kenseth 7/1 Dale Earnhardt Jr 8/1 Kyle Busch 10/1 Denny Hamlin 10/1 Brad Keselowski 12/1 Tony Stewart 12/1 Carl Edwards 12/1 Kurt Busch 1...

By Knup A 27-8 record last season was no joke, and neither was the fact that the Arizona Wildcats were a strong team, and a serious major contender as well. The Wildcats had talent across their roster last season, they ended the year ranked 21st in the nation, and they obviously made it to the NCAA Tournament. They had a tough loss to the 7th ranked Ohio State Buckeyes in the thir...
By Edward23 We are less than a year away from the 2014 FIFA World Cup and things are still moving along slowly in CONCACAF, as every team has played every other team atleast once and there are two more games to be played tonight, which are the rematches between the US and Honduras and Costa Rica and Panama. Honduras at United States 9:00 PM ET Tuesday, June 18 (ESPN at 8:30 PM ET, UniMás at 8:00 PM ET) After wins over Jamaica and Panama, the United States caps off a three-game stretch of World Cup qualifiers with one last big test. It was only back in February t...
By Scott The UFC is back in Canada this weekend. UFC 161 will be held at the MTS Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba. There are two Facebook prelim fights starting at 6pm and four more prelim fights on FX starting at 8pm. The main card starts on PPV at 10pm. The card doesn’t look that great for a pay-per-view card, but we do have two great fights to end the night. In the main event we have Dan Henderson vs. Rashad Evans and then in the co-main event we have Roy Nelson vs. Stipe Miocic. Bet on this weekend's UFC action at America's Bookie.

By Edward23 Chicago Blackhawks vs. Boston Bruins After putting in more than the traditional 60 minutes in each of the first two contests of the Stanley Cup Final, the Bruins will look to seize an edge in the series, when they return home for Game 3 against the Blackhawks. Boston rebounded after suffering a hard-luck 4-3 loss in triple-overtime in Game 1 as Daniel Paille netted the winner in the extra session for a 2-1 triumph on Saturday. Tuukka Rask weathered a furious first-period storm and finished with 33 saves in the victory. According to the oddsmakers at

NFL Preseason Week 1 Odds and Preview
Welcome to week 1 of the 2012 NFL preseason. We got a little taste last Sunday night as the New Orleans Saints defeated the Arizona Cardinals in the annual Hall of Fame game. All teams will be in action this week and we are bringing you the most current odds from America’s Bookie and a short preview of the games.
Thursday August 9, 2012
Washington Redskins (0-0) at Buffalo Bills (0-0) 7:00 PM ET
Washington is favored by 2 ½ and the total is set at 35. Mike Shanahan will want his young QB to get some game experience and build confidence and will probably see more snaps than will Ryan Fitzpatrick for Buffalo. Look for the Redskins to get the win in Robert Griffin III’s debut.
Baltimore Ravens (0-0) at Atlanta Falcons (0-0) 7:30 PM ET
Atlanta is a 1 ½ point favorite and the total is 33 ½. I’m looking for the starters on Baltimore’s defense to play very limited time in the preseason. The guys are getting old and Harbaugh is going to keep them fresh as much as possible before the season begins. The Falcons are going to flex their muscles a bit even though it is a preseason game. Look for the Falcons to move the ball and win this one.
Pittsburgh Steelers (0-0) at Philadelphia Eagles (0-0) 7:30 PM ET
This game is a PK and the total is 35. We have to remember the main focus of these games is to evaluate talent and see where everyone ends up on the depth chart. Tomlin is usually more intent on winning preseason games but look for the Eagles to win this one for Andy Reid who just lost his son.
New Orleans Saints (0-0) at New England Patriots (0-0) 7:30 PM ET
New England is a 3 point favorite and the total is set at 38. Drew Brees looked sharp in his first game last week against Arizona. I don’t look for him to get a lot of snaps until it counts. I look for Tom Brady to be just as sharp as Brees was last week. Slight nod goes to the Pats.
Green Bay Packers (0-0) at San Diego Chargers (0-0) 8:00 PM ET
San Diego is listed as a 1 point favorite and the total is set at 38. Look for lots of offense in this game. Even thought the total is a bit high I’m looking for an over here.
Denver Broncos (0-0) at Chicago Bears (0-0) 8:30 PM ET
Chicago is 3 point favorite with the total set at 34 ½. It is going to be really interesting to see Peyton Manning throw the pigskin again. The burning question will be if he can get back to form this season after a year out with the neck injury.
Friday August 10, 2012
Tampa Bay Bucs (0-0) at Miami Dolphins (0-0) 7:30 PM ET
Miami is a 2 ½ point favorite at home with a total of 33 ½. I’m not sure how the first preseason game will play out but Tampa clearly has the better team and made a lot of good moves in the offseason.
Cleveland Browns (0-0) at Detroit Lions (0-0) 7:30 PM ET
Detroit is a 3 point favorite with the total set at 36. Even though it doesn’t count I just can’t see Detroit losing against the Browns.
New York Giants (0-0) at Jacksonville Jaguars (0-0) 7:30 PM ET
Jacksonville is a 1 ½ point favorite at home and the total is 35. The Jaguars look to be the worst team in the NFL this season and it seems ridiculous they would be favored against the Giants. For that reason I’m taking Jacksonville, but only for a small wager.
New York Jets (0-0) at Cincinnati Bengals (0-0) 7:30 PM ET
Cincinnati is a 1 ½ point favorite with a total of 34. The Jets aren’t going to do anything this season but they will pull some trickiness out of the bag this week with both Tebow and Sanchez at QB.
Arizona Cardinals (0-0) at Kansas City Chiefs (0-0) 8:00 PM ET
Kansas City is a 2 ½ point favorite over the Cardinals, who already have one game under their belts. Kolb went down with bruised ribs last week but it isn’t that serious.
Minnesota Vikings (0-0) at San Francisco 49ers (0-0) 9:00 PM ET
San Francisco is favored by 3 points and the total is set at 34. The Niners know they should have beat the Giants in the NFC conference championship and will won’t to flex from the beginning.
Saturday August 11, 2012
Houston Texans (0-0) at Carolina Panthers (0-0) 7:00 PM ET
Carolina is a 2 ½ point favorite at home with a total of 35 ½. Cam Newton should be even better in his sophomore season and the Texans will be overjoyed to have Matt Schaub behind center. I’m giving the edge to Carolina in this one.
Tennessee Titans (0-0) at Seattle Seahawks (0-0) 10:00 PM ET
Seattle is a 3 point favorite with a total of 35 ½. Seattle has somewhat of a mess as they have 3 QB’s competing for the starting job.
Sunday August 12, 2012
St. Louis Rams (0-0) at Indianapolis Colts (0-0) 1:30 PM ET
St. Louis is favored by 1 ½ points with the total set at 34. The Rams are going to be much better this season and young Sam Bradford will have a good season returning from the injury. Indy had a horrible year in 2011. They won’t make much noise this season but should get a small moral victory here.
Monday August 13, 2012
Dallas Cowboys (0-0) at Oakland Raiders (0-0) 8:00 PM ET
Oakland is the 1 ½ point favorite at home and the total is 35. The Raiders lost a lot on defense in the offseason but they will have Darren McFadden returning to the backfield which is a big plus. I expect another year with Romo being hyped again. We’ve heard that before. Dallas will somehow win this one.
