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 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.

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 4 Results
This is the last of the 2012 NFL preseason. Now teams have to figure out those last cuts before the regular season begins next week. Most of the starters for all teams were irrelevant this week as teams tried to look at those last guys on the roster. All teams will begin regular season play next week and we will be bringing you the most current odds from America’s Bookie and a short preview of the games.

Tampa Bay Bucs 3 Washington Redskins 30
After playing well in the preseason the Bucs fell flat against Washington. I wouldn’t read too much into it though. They have had a good preseason and probably weren’t too concerned with this one. It was just about evaluating a few of those last roster spots.
New England Patriots 3 New York Giants 6
It was a pretty boring game that would only appeal to fans of either team. And then still maybe not. I figured it was pretty much a coin toss. I did think there would be more scoring. It was another good night for rookie defensive end Adewale Ojomo. The kid has 4 sacks in the preseason and has made a strong case for a roster spot. Giants’ fans had to be happy to see Hakeem Nicks back as he will be much needed in the season opener against Dallas. Andre Brown looked good rushing for New York, with 55 yards on 14 carries. New England didn’t show much of anything, but then they rarely do in preseason.
Miami Dolphins 13 Dallas Cowboys 30
No two ways about it, it is going to be a long season for the Dolphins. Ryan Tannehill wasn’t in there long enough to really do anything but didn’t play badly in the short time. He was 5 of 7 for 35 yards. I know you don’t want to get players hurt in preseason, but my thinking is if you are going to start a rookie QB that you might want to get him a little more game experience. Dallas is not an offensive powerhouse but they shredded the Dolphin’s D. You never know about the Cowboys though so New York better be cautious in their opener.
Thursday August 30, 2012
Atlanta Falcons 14 Jacksonville Jaguars 24
The Jaguars finished off their surprising preseason with a good win over the Falcons. They did play their starters a bit more than Atlanta, but overall Jacksonville has looked like a better team in the preseason than was earlier projected. I still don’t look for them to be a good team this year but see them winning a few more games than I thought 4 weeks ago.
New York Jets 10 Philadelphia Eagles 28
The Jets finally scored a touchdown! Unless the Jets are trying to lull teams into a trap by their poor preseason play, it is going to be a long season in New York. Very good game for QB Trent Edwards of the Eagles, who was 22 of 32 for 197 yards and 2 touchdowns. Philly is going to be fine this season, the Jets not so much so. Looks like this might be the year that it is finally revealed Mark Sanchez will not take a team anywhere in the NFL, Tim Tebow is not an NFL caliber QB and Coach Ryan is all talk and no action.
New Orleans Saints 6 Tennessee Titans 10
This one was pretty much a snoozer. The Saints are just ready to start the regular season and didn’t play many people of consequence last night. There wasn’t much production from Tennessee either but they did get the win.
Carolina Panthers 16 Pittsburgh Steelers 17
We got to see a little bit of backup QB’s shining in this close one. Charlie Batch was 11 of 14 for 102 yards and a touchdown. He is trying to make the roster for his 15th season. It was Jimmy Clausen for the Panthers, who was even more impressive with 173 yards and 2 touchdowns. The Panthers have to feel comfortable knowing they have good backup if Cam Newton ever goes down.
Minnesota Vikings 24 Houston Texans 28
Good game in the sense that we got to see some good talent trying to make the team. Trindon Holiday, formerly of LSU, had another good effort on the special teams for the Texans. The 5’5” speedster returned his 3rd kick of the preseason for a TD, which should lock him up a spot on the roster. It was also a good performance by Justin Forsett who rushed for 114 yards and 2 TD’s.
Buffalo Bills 32 Detroit Lions 38
Detroit jumped on the Bills early in this contest but Buffalo did come back to do some scoring of their own. As the teams head into their first real game, Detroit looks ready to take a step forward, while Buffalo is only looking slightly improved over last year.
Kansas City Chiefs 3 Green Bay Packers 24
I should have loaded up more on this game. There are no locks in the preseason, but this was about as close as they come. I had Green Bay -3 at home? Preseason, post apocalypse, first team playing or fans playing you just knew the Packers would get this win.
Cincinnati Bengals 16 Indianapolis Colts 20
Week 4 preseason games are all about deciding those last few roster spots. That’s why they can be so boring if you are not a team fan or a pivotal moment for the upcoming season if you are. Rookie Colts QB Chandler Harnish marched the Colts to 3 drives that resulted in a TD including a great pass with to TE Dominique Jones with 7 minutes left for the go ahead score.
Chicago Bears 28 Cleveland Browns 20
The underlying storyline in the game last night for Cleveland was the Colt McCoy vs. Seneca Wallace fight for the backup QB role. It turned out to be pretty lackluster performances from both of these guys. For Chicago, Josh McCown played very well passing for 157 yards on 20 of 29 completions. He had 2 touchdowns and 1 interception on the night. I didn’t get to see the game but this is what you are always looking for in these last preseason games. A face you might just remember down the road.
Baltimore Ravens 17 St. Louis Rams 31
This was mostly a case of the Rams really wanting to win this one and being excited to erase last year. Sam Bradford stayed in into the second quarter and got 3 touchdown passes on the night. Baltimore just looked ready to get to the real thing as most starters sat for this game.
San Diego Chargers 3 San Francisco 49ers 35
It’s just preseason I keep telling myself but I am predicting this is Norv Turners last in San Diego. They will be better than last year but are still not going to live up to the high expectations that experts always have for them. They looked really shaky having 2 turnovers on the first 2 possessions. Antonio Gates fumbled after catching a pass on the first possession and Rivers threw an int. on the second. They did finish the preseason 3-1 but once again am not impressed with the Chargers going into the regular season.
Oakland Raiders 3 Seattle Seahawks 21
The Seattle Seahawks are a perfect 4-0! In the preseason. A friend of mine called this one and I am kicking myself for not betting it. Seattle has really wanted every game in this preseason more than their opponents. And you can’t blame Pete Carroll for wanting to instill as much confidence as possible in this team. Sometimes all it takes to turn a program around is for them to get used to winning.
Denver Broncos 16 Arizona Cardinals 13
This game was a flop and the only one I lost out of my three bets last night. I really expected these teams to cover the over the way they had been scoring recently. Peyton and the rest of the starters stayed on the sidelines as they are ready and there was no question of risking injury last night. Will they be able to make a legitimate run at the AFC Championship this year? Stay tuned, it all begins next week!
