2015 NFL Week 1 – Betting Picks Against Spread

funny america's white boy nfl picks 2015 week 1 against the spread bettingIt feels like Christmas Day! NFL season begins on Thursday and I will be glued to the couch all weekend watching NFL and college football games. It will be glorious.

I’ve went 264-203-19 combined in the past two years picking NFL games against the spread. I’ve been posting my picks for the last five or six years, but really only kept a running total in recent years.

Week 1 is a tricky betting week. You can watch all the preseason football games you want and never get a feel for what the team will look like in their first regular season game.

I’ve been on a roll the last two years by winning over 60% of my NFL game picks against the spread. Let’s hope the hot streak continues.

We pick every NFL game against the spread and throw out a few upsets in Week 1 of the 2015 NFL season.

2015 NFL Team Preview: Tennessee Titans

weird funny 2015 tennessee titans season team preview NFLRemember the Titans? If you don’t live in the state of Tennessee, it’s easy to do. They haven’t been good in awhile and honestly haven’t been on national television much either. They did select former Heisman trophy-winning quarterback Marcus Mariota with the second overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft. That’s the biggest news since they gave Jeff Fisher the boot.

The Titans are in the unenviable position of being in the same division as the Indianapolis Colts. It’s hard to get into the playoffs when you’re getting lit up by Andrew Luck twice a year. They can’t blame the division much, since they do get to play Jacksonville twice as well.

How will Mariota fare in his rookie year?

Here is the 2015 NFL team preview for the Tennessee Titans.

Dorial Green-Beckham Mizzou Oklahoma NFL Combine 2015 Players to WatchThe 2015 NFL Draft Combine takes place at the end of next week. The yearly event in Indianapolis has turned into must-see television. The NFL Network does a fantastic job covering the combine.

We all know the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will most likely draft Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston with the first overall pick, but the rest of the draft is up for grabs.

All the top prospects for the 2015 NFL Draft will be there (with a few choosing to only workout at their college’s pro day) and many will see a change in their draft stock. A player can drastically change their round projection with an outstanding performance.

Are the Cleveland Browns Exploiting Loophole in NFL Rule?

Marcus Mariota Oregon Ducks Cleveland Browns 2015 NFL Draft HeismanJimmy Haslam, owner of the Cleveland Browns, is known to bend a rule or two. Now, it looks like he’s trying to pull a fast one on the NFL.

It has been widely-reported that Kevin O’Connell will be Cleveland’s offensive coordinator. But, the Browns have yet to officially hire an offensive coordinator…at least it appears that way on paper. Oh, by the way, Mr. O’Connell personally trains Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota.

How is this not against the rules?

That’s what many top NFL team executives are asking each other.

Are the Browns playing dirty pool or just exploiting a loophole in an NFL Draft rule?

2015 College Football National Championship Picks – Prop Bets

2015 College Football National Championship game NCAA coin toss prop bets funnyWe are a big fan of prop bets. They are usually a crap shoot, but with the right research, you can end up winning a bet with very favorable odds.

I’m not saying you can research who will win the coin toss, but there are many other player and team prop bets out there that have nice odds.

Some prop bets aren’t worth the money (the vig isn’t worth the slight risk), but sometimes you just have to lay a few bucks down, cross your fingers and wish the best.

I picked out some of the most popular prop bets for the 2015 College Football National Championship game between Ohio State and Oregon.
