Here Are Three Tips for Being a Sharp Sports Bettor from Bankroll to Winning posted by Patriots Fan

With the coming NFL season next month there will be bettors who are gearing up to win big this season. There are many points to consider when it comes to being a good sports bettor. It is important to know what works because nobody wants to lose. So with this in mind, let us take a look at what makes for successful sports betting.

Here are three main tips from Rich Allen's betting systems for being a sharp sports bettor. The first is to manage the bankroll, second is don't place bets based on emotion and last is don't bet parlays.

Let's look at how to manage your bankroll. Face the facts that this should be number one since no money means no winning. That seems like a no brainer, but surely there is more meat to this idea than realized. It feels great to win and winners get bored easily. It is a fact that the more excited a winner gets, the more they want to risk. Keeping up this line of logic will quickly put an end to the bettor's bankroll. With careful money management you can limit your bankroll and come out ahead. It is about discipline and using good sense.

Placing bets based on emotion is a great way to guarantee a loss. While it is true that people win, regardless of emotions, it is true that emotions play in poor decision making. It is important to keep ones cool when placing bets. When emotions come into play the blood pressure tends to rise and body heat also tends to increase. It is hard to think clearly in this with the pressure cooker mentality. This is why it makes more sense to use logic and leave emotions to the wayside while betting. When the game is over and the money is counted, that is the time to let out a whoop.

Ready, Set, Go! Counting Down to the 2014 NFL Season posted by Dolphins Fan

As we rapidly approach the end of another August that can only mean one thing, it’s time for some football! So grab your favorite team jerseys from the closet (if they still fit you) and brush up on your betting strategy for the season with this post, dig out your little car flags and let’s get ready for another exciting year! As 32 teams prepare to hit the field, we will be waiting, watching and listening in anticipation to see which players and teams will reach the top. We fix our eyes on the rookies to see if they are going to live up to our expectations or if they will crumble like the leftover chips in the bottom of the bag.

We can’t forget about the cheerleaders! They will gather around their team on the sidelines and stir up excitement among the players and their fans. They will shout and clap, they will jump and flip and no matter how many times they do the same things over and over again, it will never get old.

And then there are the coaches! They are the wheels that carry the train. I get fired up watching the coaches jump and shout whether in triumph or in defeat. If the coaches cannot coach then their teams cannot win. They are what make football exciting to me. They are the giants and they know exactly how to handle their teams.

Whether you watch football for the players, the cheerleaders or the coaches there is one thing for sure, football is the most exciting sport of all times. During one play, a player who gets thrown down and trampled on by the biggest guy on defense may get right back up like nothing happened. On the next play, the same player may take a wrong step and twist his ankle enough to sit out the next two games.

The Ultimate NFL Fan Guide to Preparing for the 2014 Season posted by Titans Fan

The NFL is the most popular sport in the United States, and the upcoming season is only a month away. Every die hard sports fan already loves the NFL, but it has gained even more popularity in recent years due to fantasy football and sports betting. Fans love to prove that they know more about the game than everyone else, and there is no better way to do that than by wagering money. Savvy bettors will use a system like the award winning sports betting systems from Rich Allen. If you're serious about putting money on games this season, then you need to start preparing now for the upcoming season. Serious sports bettors are already getting ready for the season and so should you. So here's a guide to getting ready to bet on the NFL this year.

Study the Rookies

Every NFL season sees several rookie players make a big impact on their team and the league. The emergence of Keenan Allen last year allowed the San Diego Chargers come out of nowhere to claim the last playoff spot in the AFC. Andrew Luck was able to do the same thing for a last place Colts team two years ago. It is guaranteed that several rookies are going to make a major impact on their team this season, and by figuring out who these star rookies are is a great way to gain an edge in your bets. Some of the rookies that look poised to make a big impact this season include Kelvin Benjamin, Bishop Sankey and Jadaveon Clowney.

Learn New Rosters

NFL teams gain a lot of new players through free agency signings in the off-season. It can be difficult to keep up with all of the players changing teams while you are focused on other sports, but several of these players are going to completely change the dynamic of their new teams. All of the players in new cities are established NFL players, so it should not take much time to project their impact on their new team. Taking a day to learn every team's new roster will go a long way in helping you make good bets at the beginning of the season. DeSean Jackson, Toby Gerhart, Maurice Jones-Drew and Rashad Jennings are just a few players that should have an impact on their new team.

Betting on sports, is practically the national past time. Betting on the NFL, is always one of the more prominent activities. So, what makes it so awesome?

1) You can make make money at it but, you need to be strategic about it. Those who do have a game plan, tend to make consistent profit over an entire season. If you bet big on just one night, on one game you might be out of luck. The most successful bettor use methods like these betting systems from Rich Allen to even out the wins and losses throughout the season.

2) It's a great way to have fun with friends. When certain NFL games are on, friends get together to watch the action. It's always fun seeing who placed what bets on which team and seeing the winners and losers and the end of the game. The best part, seeing your friend's faces, when you win and they lose. It can get a bit crazy when people win big and bragging rights are always fun to hold over your friends.

3) It's a good education. Not many people consider this. But, it's a good way to learn more about the NFL, on the way the game works. As you place your bets, you get to know which players are more crucial.  You also get to learn more about the story of each team as the season unfolds when you pay more attention to what is happening on and off the field.

4) Live betting is an adrenaline rush -  There is nothing like placing a bet just before a play is made, then waiting to see what happens. The best part of live betting is that you don't have to wait until the game is over, you know when the play is over. There are any number of bets that can be placed during the game which makes it much more fun to participate in.

The Fix 10-12: QB Overdose posted by Amari Harris

The turning point.

Tough loss for the Dallas Cowboys last week.  And it wasn’t one of those 24 hour losses either.  It was one of those that you think about for the next few days, and depending on how things go as you get into the middle part of the schedule, one of those games you think about all year.  A “What if?”  game, if you will.  I predicted that the Cowboys would beat the Broncos because I knew they could match up and I knew they could step their game up to stiff competition.  Did I expect a 48-51 shootout?  Hecks naw, but in hindsight it should have been obvious.  I bet that the defense would step up rather than Tony Romo actually playing at a Peyton Manning-like level.   Instead Tony Romo played perfect for exactly 58 minutes of the football game.  Peyton Manning did the same, except his mistake came earlier in the game rather than in crunch time. 

It’s ironic because Peyton is also known for making those critical mistakes in the clutch, but Romo beat him to the punch last sunday.  I can imagine a scenario where the Cowboys punted the ball to the Broncos in the last couple minutes of the game and Manning actually threw the “ game losing interception” (hyperlink).  But Romo beat him to it.  The QB duel was worth the angst.  Porous defense for sure, but the QBs made the game.  And in case anyone didn’t know, Romo is an elite quarterback.  He is not a clutch quarterback, but then again neither is Peyton Manning.

Friday Football Fix: A Rare Guarantee!

I apologize for not posting before the games this weekend.  I visited my mom’s house for the weekend which meant no computer and no internet and I forgot to post before leaving for the weekend.  I’ll post what I had written to prove to you all that I knew that Antonio Gates and Danny Woodhead would destroy the Dallas Cowboys, as I knew they, along with Eddie Royal, were the only real offensive threats they may not be able to handle.

Despite the sheer inability to cover those two individuals the Cowboys looked like they were well on their way to victory, after a Sean Lee interception return for a touchdown toward the end of the first half that put them up 21-10.  I think every Cowboys fan let out a collective sigh of relief, and felt that we pretty much had this one in the bag (I’ll include myself, as I ominously used the words “Victory Cigar” after that play *slap*).  They proceeded to allow 20 unanswered points, 400+ yards and 3 touchdowns from Phillip Rivers, and breakout performances by Woodhead and Gates.  Yes, it was a disappointing day.  Even with the Giants and Eagles losing once again, and the Cowboys remaining as the sole leader of the NFC division, they really could have gotten off to an encouraging start. 

Nonetheless, the past is the past, and this is a new week; a very big week indeed.  The juggernaut Denver Broncos come to town with the most unstoppable offensive machine since the Greatest Show On Turf.  The Broncos have not just beaten, but dominated every team they’ve faced this year.  They have one 14 regular season games in a row and all of them by more than a touchdown.  Suffice to say, the Cowboys will be heavy underdogs this week.  And I love it…

What’s in Store for the Oakland Raiders in 2013? posted by Raiders News

The Oakland Raiders are coming off a pitiful season last year when they finished 4-12. Overall, it’s been a bad decade for the team ever since they lost Super Bowl XXXVI to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2002, the last time that they finished above the .500 mark. The past ten years has also seen the franchise employ seven head coaches and having two seasons where they had split their wins and losses.

Will the bad luck continue for the Raiders this year?

A lot of it will depend on their quarterbacks. Last year, Carson Palmer threw for 4,018 yards and 22 touchdowns before he was traded to the Arizona Cardinals this offseason. Although Palmer’s production is not exactly of all-world quality, his work won’t be easy to duplicate whoever wins the quarterback duties. Matt Flynn is one of those expected to fill Palmer’s shoes but he needs to limit his turnovers to become a more effective quarterback. Draft pick Tyler Wilson is also competing for the job although his small hands may hinder him from becoming a good quarterback as small-handed quarterbacks rarely find success in the NFL.

The Raiders will become successful this year if their offensive line improves. Players Jared Veldheer, Stefen Wisniewski and Menelik Watson, a rookie, are expected to contribute to this fact. Right guard Mike Brisiel showed a lot of promise in 2011 during his stint with the Houston Texans and if he returns that form, then the Raiders will be in a good position to win games and make those who bet for the Raiders as advised by sportsbettingprofessor com happy.

What Lies Ahead for the Dallas Cowboys in 2013? posted by Cowboys News

The Dallas Cowboys last played in the NFL playoffs three seasons ago. Last year, the team ended the regular season with a lackadaisical 8-8 record, marking the second straight season that they ended with a .500 winning percentage. Is the team bound to make a strong run to the playoffs, or will it continue to be stuck in mediocrity? Fans of the Dallas Cowboys are hoping that the team will get more wins this year to propel it into the playoffs.

Cowboys fans who are pessimistic about their team’s chances cannot be blamed. After all, the team has had painfully close and disappointing seasons the past few years. And even during seasons when the Cowboys won a lot of games like in 2007 and 2009, the team still ended up without a title.

This year, the Cowboys will return basically the same team from last season although there is optimism that they offense will improve. The defense may be adjusted but with the team employing the same personnel, look for it to stay pedestrian.

Cowboys fans can still count on the odds that their team will post a stronger record this year. In the NFL, many teams that were not predicted in the summer to make it big in the season have made liars out of analysts and bookmakers. In the 2012-13 season, for instance, five of the 12 playoff teams were not projected to make it past the regular season. There were also several teams that were picked to make it to the playoffs that eventually faltered and disappointed the bookmakers.

That’s the beauty of the NFL- it is hard to predict winners and losers. Perhaps a sports betting professor can help sports bettors have a better chance of winning in sports betting games.

The Fix- 9/21 posted by Amari Harris

My name is Amari.  And I’m a football addict.

Cowboys vs. Rams

Let’s be Frank (yes, I capitalized), last week the Cowboys let down in a major way.  They had a chance to go 2-0 and be discussed as one of the best teams in the league, but instead they flubbed against a good, but not great Kansas City Chiefs team and they left waaaaaaaaaayyyyyyy too many plays on the field.  Why not challenge the Dunbar fumble?  Why didn’t Dez make that easy catch despite all the amazing ones he did make? Why did Tony Romo revert back to Tony O’No in a critical moment in the game?  Despite all of this, the Cowboys still had a chance to stop the Chiefs on 3rd down and get the ball back for what was sure to be another one of Romo’s patented 4th quarter comebacks.  Then Morris Claiborne made a rookie mistake, despite the fact that it’s his second year.  He committed pass interference on a completion that would have been at least 2 yards shy of a first down.  Sigh.  That’s all I could do, as I have to come to expect, and sadly accept this from this Cowboys team on a regular basis.  If the game is tight, the Cowboys find a way to make it tighter, and often find a way to flub.  There would be no Miles Austin Kansas City magic on this day [sn: Did Austin even play in the game?].  So all I could do was hope that every other team in the NFC East would lose, so that the Cowboys wouldn’t lose ground in the division.  And by my luck, that was my only NFL wish of the day that was granted (see, both of my fantasy teams lost).

Draft Larry Fitzgerald or Andre Johnson? posted by TedLevin

 

Drafting a wide receiver in fantasy football can be a sticky situation. A receiver’s production hinges on multiple factors and risks.

Does the wide receiver have the quarterback capable of getting them the ball? Does their offense pass enough? Are there other offensive options that open up their game?

Larry Fitzgerald and Andre Johnson were once the top two fantasy wide receivers. Their production is still up there, but they aren’t as reliable as Calvin Johnson or AJ Green.

What if your first choices for receiver are already taken? Perhaps the best two options are Johnson and Fitzgerald? What do the  fantasy football cheat sheets tell you about these two stars?

Larry Fitzgerald

Fitzgerald is one of those guys everyone likes. He’s humble, works hard, and makes huge plays. He’s the type of large, fast, and reliable number one receiver every team wants. He almost helped the Arizona Cardinals win the Super Bowl years ago.

After Kurt Warner’s retirement,  Larry Fitzgerald’s production dropped. Why?

The Cardinals haven’t found a reliable or even decent quarterback to run their offense. Last season they constantly shifted between John Skelton and Kevin Kolb. Those two guys had no business playing as a starting quarterback. They couldn’t get the job done.

Starting a mediocre quarterback wastes Fitzgerald’s talent and diminishes his fantasy potential. He still has the talent and skills to stand out as the top fantasy wide receiver. Now, he’s a questionable pick.

Adrian Peterson issues statement: 'I am, without a doubt, not a child abuser' (Shutdown

Early Monday morning, the Minnesota Vikings got out in front of what was expected to be a weeklong drama over whether Adrian Peterson would take the field Sunday, announcing the All-Pro running back will return to practice this week and is scheduled to play Week 3 against the New Orleans Saints. Now, Peterson is doing his best to avoid the same potentially season-long media firestorm. Following Peterson's indictment for what doctors described as " child abuse " in a police report and the 29-year-old's subsequent surrender to authorities over the weekend, the Vikings deactivated their star during Sunday's 30-7 loss to the New England Patriots. The next morning, owners Zygi and Mark Wilf released a statement explaining their reasoning for reinstating Peterson.  [read full article]

Aaron Hernandez: I felt helpless to refuse police (The Associated Press)

Hernandez said, ''I felt helpless in the face of the occupation of my house by the police.''

Patriots' defense faces the unknown in Carr (The Associated Press)

The New England Patriots' defense is preparing for a bit of the unknown in Oakland rookie quarterback Derek Carr this Sunday. New England coaches have watched plays from his days at Fresno State. ''He's an athletic guy back there,'' Patriots coach Bill Belichick said on a conference call Tuesday. Obviously the systems are different but from a skill standpoint, I think his skills are his skills and they're pretty good.'' The Raiders have lost both of their games - 19-14 on the road to the New York Jets and 30-14 last week at home to the Houston Texans. [read full article]
