2014 NFL Week 9 – Betting Picks Against Spread

Tom Brady Peyton Manning weird old rare NFL Denver Broncos New England PatriotsI had a rough week, guys. I tried to change up my betting style a bit and it didn’t work out. I was 5-9-1 on the week and now 59-59-2 against the spread on the season.

It might be time to jump off the bandwagon of some teams you’ve been riding this season. Also, keep an eye on the injury report. There are some key players currently questionable.

I had a decent year betting against the spread in the NFL last season (133-95-10). Any year you hit nearly 60% of the NFL games against the spread is a damn good year. Let’s hope my win percentage is near that this season.

We pick every NFL game against the spread and throw out a few upsets in Week 9 of the 2014 NFL season.

2014 NCAA Football – Week 10 Betting Picks Against Spread

Oregon Ducks Cheerleaders hot sexy blonde football basketball collegeI felt pretty good about going 11-8-1 last week. I called a few nice upsets and missed a couple by a single point. My glaring mistake was picking against TCU (oops). My record is now 85-71-3 on the season.

I haven’t heard much about the weather being a huge issue this weekend. It is supposed to be the 40′s in the Midwest, so if any Southern teams have to do some traveling, it could be a shock to their system, but it’s nothing that would deter production.

We were 134-79-8 against the spread betting on college football games last season. We hope to keep it going and help you guys out again this season.

We pick against the spread for all the big college football games on Saturday (November 1st, 2014), and picked some smaller conference games as well. Enjoy!

2014-15 NBA Team Preview: San Antonio Spurs

Gregg Popovich San Antonio Spurs NBAThe Spurs have been a championship contender for so long that Coach Pop is just ‘over it’. He doesn’t want to talk about basketball or do interviews. He’s been this way for awhile. I don’t blame him. The guy just wants to play games and not do all the extra stuff.

The Spurs are once again one of the best teams in the league. Getting the #1 seed isn’t their goal. They will sit their stars when they see fit. They just want to keep their older players fresh and get in the playoffs, no matter the seed.

How many seasons do Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobli have left in them? Could this be their last together?

We will be posting a team preview for every team up until the start of the regular season.

Here is the 2014-15 NBA season preview for the San Antonio Spurs.

2014-15 NBA Team Preview: Sacramento Kings

Sacramento Kings owner Vivek Ranadive.The Sacramento Kings are the most intriguing team in the NBA. Not only do they have Boogie Cousins on the roster, but new owner Vivek Ranadiv√© pitched the idea of 4-on-5 defense. It would be similar to what Loyola Marymount ran in the late 80′s.

I plan on spending many nights switching back-and-forth between the marquee game of the night and random Kings games. I doubt they will use the proposed defense, but I’m all about outside-the-box thinkers in leadership roles.

2014-15 NBA Team Preview: Portland Trail Blazers

LaMarcus Aldridge Portlandia Portland Trail Blazers NBAPortland was able to get into the second-round of the playoffs, but ran into the San Antonio. LaMarcus Aldridge and Damian Lillard just keep improving together, but they were not ready for the Spurs. No team was ready for the Spurs.

Portland didn’t mess with the team this off-season. They kept all the starters and just added some bench depth. This could be the season Portland matures and has a nice playoff run.

2014-15 NBA Team Preview: Phoenix Suns

Markieff Morris Marcus Morris Phoenix Suns twins NBAThe Suns went into last season as a bottom-of-the-barrel preseason pick. They were able to trade Luis Scola to Indiana for Gerald Green, Miles Plumlee and a first-round pick. That trade helped spark a winning season in Phoenix.

The Suns gave Eric Bledsoe a big contract this offseason. If he plays as well as expected, their back-court duo of Goran Dragic and Bledsoe could be the best in the league. Let’s hope the payday doesn’t mess up his work ethic.

The Suns were only a game out of the 8th spot last season. Will they make the playoffs this season?

2014-15 NBA Team Preview: Philadelphia 76ers

Nerlens Noel Philadelphia 76ers sixers nba Kentucky funnyTo best explain where the Sixers are as a franchise, they left the 2014 NBA Draft with Joel Embiid (who is expected to miss the entire season) and Dario Saric (who may not play in the NBA for two seasons). Yes, this occurred a year after Philly drafted Nerlens Noel, who sat out all last year recovering from an ACL injury.

The 76ers have made little to no effort in improving their roster for this season. They signed borderline D-league players. Philly is already tanking and haven’t even played a single game.

It will be a long ass year in Philadelphia.

We will be posting a team preview for every team up until the start of the regular season.

2014-15 NBA Team Preview: Orlando Magic

Elfrid Payton Aaron Gordon Orlando Magic NBA 2014-15The Magic have spent the last two off-seasons rebuilding a young, athletic roster. They were able to draft Victor Oladipo to guard wings, Elfrid Payton to play the point and Aaron Gordon to do the freakishly athletic things he’s expected to do in the NBA. Orlando is off to a nice start.

How far away is the Magic from being a playoff team?

2014-15 NBA Team Preview: Oklahoma City Thunder

Kevin Durant Mitch McGary Oklahoma City Thunder NBAThe Thunder are the perennial preseason favorite to win the Western Conference. They deserve all the hyped they receive. Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook are two the best ten players in the league. Unfortunately, this preseason is much different for one of their stars.

Kevin Durant is expected to miss at least 6-8 weeks with a Jones fracture in his right foot. OKC didn’t really have a contingency plan for this. They are thin at small forward and will need to be creative to fill his spot.

2014-15 NBA Team Preview: New York Knicks

Carmelo Anthony New York Knicks money NBACarmelo Anthony did the whole recruiting tour this off-season. He visited Chicago, Houston and Los Angeles (among others) and each team pulled out the red carpet. It was a long shot he would sign anywhere other than back in New York, but I’m sure he got some free meals out of it.

The Knicks had a disappointing season last year. They had hoped to build on the previous season’s success, but were derailed by injuries and underwhelming free agent signings.

Can the Knicks bounce back and once again be a playoff team?

2014-15 NBA Team Preview: New Orleans Pelicans

Anthony Davis New Orleans Pelicans NBAAnthony Davis is my sleeper pick for MVP. It is highly unlikely, but just like Derrick Rose did a few years back, he beat the odds and won the award over the usual candidates.

In order for Davis to become the next superstar, the Pelicans need to make the postseason. That is easier said that done in the hyper-competitive Western Conference.

New Orleans have a fun roster to watch. They can spread the court with shooters and score at the hoop with athletic finishers at the rim.

Here is the 2014-15 NBA season preview for the New Orleans Pelicans.

2014-15 NBA Team Preview: Minnesota Timberwolves

Andrew Wiggins Minnesota Twolves Timberwolves NBAMinnesota was busy this off-season. Trade rumors swirled all Summer. No one had a clue which player(s) they would get for Kevin Love. First, it was Klay Thompson, then Chicago jumped into the mix and finally, LeBron returned to Cleveland. That move trumped everything and Love was moved to Ohio.

How will the new-look Twolves fare this season? Was the Kevin Love trade the first of many future moves?

Here is the 2014-15 NBA season preview for the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Jason Kidd is now in charge in Milwaukee. How will he fare with young talent?

Do the Bucks play hard all season or will they once again tank to speed up the rebuilding process? That’s the biggest question in Milwaukee.
