Football is over… Now what?

Posted by in NFL General on February 10th, 2013 | 1 Comment

2013 NFL Offseason DatesThe football season is over. We now have to wait 5 months before training camp starts and 7 months before the 2013 NFL season kicks off. Here are some other key dates to get your football fix until Training Camp begins in late July.

February 20-26 – NFL Combine

March 9 – Free Agency Begins

March 17-20 – Annual League Meeting

April 25-27 – NFL Draft

What else can be done during this period when we all go through withdrawal and don’t know what to do with ourselves on Sunday? Fortunately, there’s March Madness around the corner once we’re out of this dreaded month of February with ridiculously cold weather and nothing exciting going on in the sports world. Feel free to check out the 2013 March Madness lines or browse this NCAA March Madness Gambling Site.

It looks like my Sunday is relegated to NCAA basketball on Sunday. Today we see a matchup between #1 Indiana vs. #10 Ohio State. Despite Indiana dropping an overtime loss to Illinois the other day, they still kept their #1 ranking and look like the team to beat. I’ll be picking them to win the whole NCAA tournament as Victor Oladipo and Cody Zeller look like the best 1-2 punch in the college basketball ranks. Oladipo is drawing comparisons to Michael Jordan with his moves, while Zeller is your classic Indiana big man. A 7’0″ 240 lbs. Indiana native that’s averaging 16.2 PPG and 8.3 RPG. Indiana is going to be an exciting team to watch in the tournament.

See you all next year. Congratulations to Beantown Brawlers winning the pick ’em league. Although we had the same record (137-124 ATS) at the top, he won the league with the tiebreaker.…

Super Bowl 47 – Ravens vs. 49ers Pick Against the Spread

Posted by in NFL Picks on February 3rd, 2013 | 2 Comments

Ravens vs. 49ersBALTIMORE RAVENS VS. SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS (-3.5)

The Super Bowl is finally here. I’m just thrilled to not have to watch the Patriots, Giants, or Steelers (all the teams that I cannot stand) again who seemed to have played in 8 of the last 10 Super Bowls collectively. This year I have two teams that I would want to see win the Super Bowl. That hasn’t happened since the Saints faced the Colts.

I’m torn here as I want the Ravens win since I would love to see Ray Lewis end his illustrious career with another Super Bowl victory. However, I think the 49ers will bring home the bacon. I think the 49ers are stronger on both sides of the ball. The 49ers played two high-scoring offenses in the playoffs in the Packers and Falcons and outscoring those teams was an easy task for the 49ers.  The 49ers won 45-31 and 28-24.

The Falcons game was a true test for the 49ers. Going on the road, giving up a 17-0 lead in the 1st quarter, and having to battle back. The 49ers have an offense that can strike quickly thanks to Colin Kaepernick, which is something that they’ve lacked the last few years. The 49ers defense got their act together and allowed just 1 touchdown in the next 45 minutes of the game.

The Ravens have been equally impressive, beating Peyton Manning and Tom Brady on the road. Holding the Patriots to 13 points is hard to believe. If someone would have said prior to that game that the Patriots would be held  to less than 14 points, it would have been met with complete laughter. Ray Lewis has that defense inspired and I can see them potentially winning the …
