Playoff Predictions and one big Upset

These divisional round playoff games are the most anticipated games of the year to date. In the NFC, you have the high flying offense of the Saints against the stingy defense of the 49ers. Not sold on San Fran and although New Orleans a much weaker road team, I expect them to get the win. Lay the 3.5 points. The other NFC game could be the upset of the week….

New York Giants at Green Bay Packers

There seems to be one team that rises from the ranks of a lesser seed and makes an unexpected championship push every playoff season, and there’s mounting evidence that this edition of the Giants could be the one that duplicates what its 2007 predecessors and last year’s Packers were both able to accomplish. And with a recent tragedy providing a potential distraction and the possibility of rust due to an…

Houston Texans at Baltimore Ravens

Despite their opposite reputations as an offensive threat (Houston) and defensive powerhouse (Baltimore), the Texans and Ravens are pretty similar teams when the numbers are compared. Both ranked middle-of-the-road on offense and rely strongly on their running backs, while the two clubs were stingy in allowing yards and points, ranking right next to one another in both categories. The deciding factors in this game should be experience and home field….

Denver Broncos at New England Patriots

Considering Tebow was able to have success throwing the ball on one of the league’s premier defenses a week ago, going up against a New England unit that’s been glaringly submissive all throughout this season should be no sweat, right? Don’t count on it. The well-coached Patriots will learn from the Steelers’ mistakes and aren’t about to let Thomas have one-on-one matchups the talented young receiver can exploit, and the…

New Orleans at San Francisco

Defense doesn’t come to mind when speaking of the Saints, and they were fortunate enough to score more points than the defensively-challenged Lions last week. Fast forward to the present, and New Orleans has a tough challenge against San Francisco’s highly-regarded stop unit. Scoring points and running the football are two aspects of the game opposing teams had trouble doing against the 49ers this season, and that’s something the Saints…

Shorter Schedule does affect NBA Betting

After five months of hearing about nothing but lockouts, salary caps and mediation, sports betting fans awoke Christmas morning to find that Santa had left the NBA and more importantly, NBA betting under their trees. But, like a toy that carries the “some assembly required” warning, these gifts also force recipients to do a little work before they can enjoy their benefits.   NBA betting practitioners, at least those who…
