Week 16 Power Rankings – The Jaguars are the Best Team in the NFL

by Travis Reed • December 19, 2017

Wow, well just take a look at that scorching hot take in the headline.  Ok, now that you’ve processed that information, let me tell you that I generally hate hot takes.  Just saying something contrarian to get page views is something I despise actually.  I’m not just thinking of ways to rank teams to rile […]


Week 14 Power Rankings – Chargers Climb into Top 10

by Travis Reed • December 6, 2017

Every team in the league has played 75% and we now have a pretty good idea about the strengths and weaknesses of each one.  Or do we?  The NFL has a way of reminding us that just when you think you have everything figured out, the unexpected happens and turns our preconceived notions into mush.  […]


Rams are headed to London in Week 7, bet against L.A. in Week 6

by John Ewing • October 13, 2017

Ten years ago, the NFL played its first game in London. This year the league will stage four games across the pond. Two have already been played with the third slated for Week 7 (Rams vs. Cardinals). After a decade of games there should be some interesting trends, right? Not really. A 19-game sample is […]


Fade the Bears if they are losing at halftime

by John Ewing • September 28, 2017

It’s halftime of Thursday Night Football. Chicago is trailing Green Bay, which side do you bet in the 2nd half? Fade the Bears if they are losing at halftime. The oddsmakers aren’t expecting this game to be close. Green Bay is a 7.5-point favorite at Lambeau Field. Teams favored on Thursday Night Football have treated […]


Best QBs when losing at halftime

by John Ewing • September 25, 2017

Football was fun again on Sunday. There was a slew of high scoring (the OVER went 10-4) back and forth games that finished in unpredictable ways. For all the excitement, only one game featured a team overcoming a halftime deficit to win. Trailing the Bengals 21-7 after two quarters, Aaron Rodgers led the Packers comeback […]


2017 NFL Super Bowl Value Bets (Week 2 Update)

by John Ewing • September 20, 2017

Two weeks into the season and eight teams are a perfect 2-0 but only a pair are worth betting to win the Super Bowl. To determine if a team has value we look at what their current odds are to win the title at BetOnline and compare that to our projected odds that they win […]


2017 NFL Simulations (Week 2 Update)

by John Ewing • September 19, 2017

What did we learn in Week 2 of the NFL? The Patriots bounced back (the Brady/Belichick era isn’t over), the Falcons look ready to make another run at the Super Bowl, Blake Bortles (3 turnovers) is bad, Derek Carr (3 TDs) is good, and two of last year’s best teams (Seattle and Dallas) are struggling. […]


0-2 ATS teams are great buy back opportunities

by John Ewing • September 18, 2017

Six teams have started the season 0-2 against-the-spread. Seattle, New Orleans, New York Jets, New York Giants, Cincinnati and Arizona have let bettors down in back-to-back weeks. In six of their ten games, these teams received 50% or more of spread bets. Casual bettors are likely to fade these poor performing squads but that would […]


When will the Jets win?

by John Ewing • September 15, 2017

How many days until the NFL Draft? Gang Green is in full tank mode and will lose many games in 2017. The possibility of adding Sam Darnold or another top quarterback prospect is the only silver lining for the Jets long-suffering fan base. A winless season is possible but unlikely. When will the Jets win? […]


Bet the OVER when both teams go UNDER early in the season

by John Ewing • September 14, 2017

Last year was one of the highest scoring in NFL history. The touchdown parade didn’t continue in Week 1. Low scoring games helped the Under go 10-2 on Sunday. Bad performances (see Dalton, Andy) were the most likely cause for the point drought. It is unlikely that more than half the league fails to score […]
