NBA training camps opened this week and the betting lines have bounced around since they were released soon after the start of the NBA Free Agency period.
It’s no surprise that the Golden State Warriors are the favorites headed into this season after signing megastar Kevin Durant. The defending champion Cleveland Cavaliers aren’t far behind, but then there is a huge gap between those teams and the rest of the field.
There isn’t much juice left on the bone if you feel that either Golden State or Cleveland will win the NBA title. There is place where you can still find some bets with some juice, the division battles.
Maxim released its annual “Hot 100” list for 2016. This year’s list is quite different from previous years’ lists.
The 2016 Maxim Hot 100 does have a few familiar faces on it, but the list is mostly filled with runway models instead of young Hollywood starlets. I’m guessing it is because a pivot the magazine made over a year ago to make Maxim less of a guy’s magazine and more appealing to both men and women.
I admit that I’ve never heard of many women on this year’s list, but I’m not exactly familiar with the world of high fashion. But don’t worry, Sports Illustrated swimsuit models and Victoria’s Secret Angels are littered all over the Hot 100.
See who made Maxim’s Hot 100 list and let us know if you agree with them.
I love Autumn. You no longer get swamp ass just stepping outside and bands release a ton of stuff this time of year.
This month’s playlist is filled with bands that we’ve profiled before, but this time with brand new material. This is almost like an All-Star edition of the playlist.
I always keep an ear out for new music. I love discovering new bands/songs, it’s a habit from my days as a music journalist. Even though this is mostly a sports blog, I still add quite a bit of music and pop culture content. Keep sending me tracks via email or Twitter. I love checking out all the recommendations you send. Keep them comin’!
I feel like this month’s list is great. Make sure to go over to our Spotify playlist where we add every track each month. There’s something for everyone there.
I had my first solid week of the year after going 16-9 last week. I felt like I had a solid grasp on the outcomes and would have had a better week if not for a couple fluke covers…but there’s nothing you can do about those.
I’m glad that there aren’t as many 30+ point spreads this week. Teams are starting to get into the meat of their schedules and conference games will be in full force by next week. I hate having to bet on huge spreads, since it just adds a lot more to factor in when picking games.
We at ‘America’s White Boy’ pick against the spread for all the big college football games on Saturday (September 24th, 2016) and a few Thursday games. We also pick five extra games as a bonus.
I started off great last week, but the late games destroyed me. I finished with a 7-8-1 record on the week. I really like this week’s lines, so I hope for a better week.
I think you must take records with a grain of salt right now. There are a lot of quality 0-2 teams that play winnable games this week. Also, there are a couple 2-0 teams that have kind of lucked into an undefeated record. Records will start coming into play more after the first four games.
Week 3 is always a litmus test for many teams, especially if you currently sit at 1-1 or even 0-2. You don’t want to fall below .500 or end up winless after three games.

So you want to know all the bling that went into building a super cross motorcycle for the AMA Motocross Championship? Many riders keep their OEM motorcycle parts and accessories a secret. Most riders stay true to their sponsors and use only their approved parts. Well here is a short list complied by BikeBandit.com for your viewing on what parts many of the riders are using. Use this list to pimp out your bike and match what the pros are using.
The AMA Motocross Championship begins in mid May and continues until late August in the United States. This year the AMA Motocross Championship is sponsored by Lucas Oil and is named the 2016 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship. The championship consists of twelve rounds at twelve major tracks all over the continental United States. Tracks are located through the US starting in Sacramento CA on May 21 st and ending in Crawfordsville IN on August 27th.
I had a very average week and finished 13-12. I don’t feel too bad about it, but wished the outcome was better. I made educated picks and if two or three of them went the other way, I’d feel pretty darn great.
Week 2 was full of large point spreads and honestly it was about 50/50 on the favorites covering in those games. I don’t think it will mess with point spreads too much going forward, but maybe Georgia should get knocked a few points for keeping the Nicholls State game close.

I didn’t start off the year very well. I stuck my neck out and made some risky picks for large point spread covers. None of the larger point spreads covers hit and I was left with a 6-8-2 record on the week.
I gained a lot of knowledge from last week’s games. There are still a lot of question marks this week, but don’t get stuck in some of the team trends from last season. It’s a new season and teams are fresh (and a little rusty). A team may make adjustments and be much better this week.
There can be a lot of value in Week 2 point spreads. The public tends to take a little too much stock in what they saw in the first week. Preseason team rankings will come in handy this week, since a lot of losing teams will bounce back end up 1-1 after this week.
