Five weeks into the season, and there are no unbeaten teams left. While plenty of teams are doing well, there haven’t been any teams that have emerged as big favorites as of yet. Injuries are taking their toll, and others just aren’t performing as well as was expected. It’s a turbulent time, so let’s look at what would happen if the playoffs started as of Tuesday, October 7: Continue reading If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 5 »

Well my so called “Lock” of last week could not have been any further from the truth, as The New England Patriots were thoroughly embarrassed by the Kansas City Chiefs 41-14 on Monday Night Football. I picked the Pats to win 30-21 on Monday, and my record is 6-7 overall. I am confident in bouncing back this week just like in week two of the NFL, (3-1 record in week 2).
Take the Washington Redskins (+7) over the Seattle Seahawks.
Washington is going to help redeem my debacle of a pick Monday night. The Skins are hosting the Seahawks on Monday Night Football this week, and Washington will be coming off 10 days of rest, (Seattle off a bye). Continue reading 2014 NFL Betting Tips: Week 5 »

Before jumping into week 5, let’s see how I did week 4. I will be the first to say, my predictions saw marked improvement over week 3.
Week 4 Recap:
Turns out Jacksonville’s defense is as bad as expected. Anyone who played Phillip Rivers enjoyed his 377 passing yards and 3 TDs. Continue reading Redraft King: Week 5 2014 Advice »

For most teams, the NFL season is already a fourth of the way done. The Raiders have a new coach. Seattle has already suffered a rough upset. Injuries are continuing to be an issue across the league. All the domestic violence in the news has led to stars being cut or banned and multiple press conferences where everyone refuses to answer questions. The league doesn’t now how to send good teams to London. New England looks almost useless after trading away Logan Mankins (which is about more than missing one player). With various kinds of turmoil going around already, this is a great year to unseat perennial favorites, so let’s look at what would happen if the playoffs started as of Tuesday, September 30: Continue reading If the Playoffs Started Today – NFL Week 4 »

Week two of the NFL was a nice bounce back week for me. There were a couple big upsets with the New Orleans Saints falling to the Cleveland Browns in the final seconds of the game, and the Chicago Bears coming back from a 17-0 deficit to defeat the San Francisco 49ers. I went 3-1 picking games last week with my only slip up being the Tennessee Titans. The Bears, New England Patriots and New York Jets all covered its games. My record on the season is now an even 4-4, and we look to keep the trend of picking winners to continue in week three.
No.1: Denver Broncos (+5) over the Seattle Seahawks
The last time Denver was matched up against Seattle, they were in Super Bowl XLVIII, and were thoroughly embarrassed 43-8. The Broncos have been waiting for this game since February, 2nd of 2014. Denver will look to redeem itself in a major way, and there is no better place to do that than in the home of the reigning Super Bowl champion. Continue reading 2014 NFL Betting Tips: Week 3 »

Roger Goodell, since he started as commissioner in 2008, has earned himself the reputation as a ruler with an iron fist, so now in the wake of the Ray Rice incident, it is ironic that his biggest controversy to date begins with him being too lenient on a certain matter.
After only giving Ray Rice a two game suspension for hitting his then-fiancee (now wife), Janay Rice, into unconsciousness, Goodell’s judgement was questioned, especially juxtaposed against his draconian punishments given to mere marijuana-users (Josh Gordon suspension). Yet, once TMZ released the second, more graphic of the videos capturing Rice’s punching of his fiancee, Goodell’s biggest obstacle now became convincing the press that he had not seen that second video.

It was a tough first week in the NFL in terms of picking game in the gambling world. Major upsets were on full display last Sunday, with the likes of the New England Patriots falling to the hands of the Miami Dolphins, the Chicago Bears losing to the lowly Buffalo Bills in overtime, and the New Orleans Saints getting dropped by the Atlanta Falcons in overtime as well. Last week I went 1-3 picking games, as my three losses were the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Washington Redskins and Chicago Bears. My lone winner was the Indianapolis Colts, as they covered by the skin of their teeth last Sunday night. We look to recover in week two.
No.1: Patriots (-3) over the Minnesota Vikings
It was a shocker last week to watch the Pats blow a 10-point second half lead to the Dolphins. Continue reading 2014 NFL Week 2 Betting Tips »
