Super Bowl 52 – Betting Picks Against Spread & Prop Bets

I LOVE prop bets. I actually get more joy out of betting Super Bowl prop bets than betting against the spread. Yes, most are a crap shoot, but with the right research, you can end up winning bets 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 for the best.

I picked out some of the most popular (and the most absurd) prop bets for Super Bowl 52 (or Super Bowl LII for Roman numeral fans)…and we also pick the game against the spread.

2017 NFL Fantasy Football Start/Sit – Week 16

At this point, you’re either playing for the championship or you’re playing for pride.

If you’re thinking about bailing on the season because you’re not in the main playoffs, suck it up and play! There’s nothing worse than playing a guy in fantasy late in the season and seeing he is starting a ton of dudes on IR.

Here is our Fantasy Football Sit/Start for Week 16 of the 2017 NFL season…and enjoy our strange MS Paint masterpiece of Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff.

I want to explain what I mean by “sit” and “start.” Of course you are going to start some of the guys i say to bench this week, because you probably used high draft picks or a lot of money in an auction for them. My ‘sit’ players are guys I am just not completely sold that they will have good weeks. If you have a guy that you are on the fence about, maybe this will help you pick between the players.

2017 NFL Fantasy Football Start/Sit – Week 11

This is the last week of byes, so it’s now time to start figuring out your rosters for the rest of the season. Streaming is still a viable option going forward because you’re still going to have some bad match-ups, especially with defenses and kickers. A roster should always be fluid, but after this week, you’re going to have 80% of your roster set in stone.

Carolina, Indianapolis, NY Jets and San Francisco are off this week. You will need to find replacements for studs like Panthers QB Cam Newton and Colts WR T.Y. Hilton.

Here is our Fantasy Football Sit/Start for Week 11 of the 2017 NFL season…and enjoy our oddball triumphant MS Paint masterpiece of New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara.

Which Free Agent Running Back Should the Colts Sign?

LeGarrette Blount Ben Tate Indianapolis Colts Pittsburgh Steelers Cleveland Browns NFL cut signed running backsThe Indianapolis Colts will need to rely on Andrew Luck’s arm even more this season. The team placed Ahmad Bradshaw on season-ending injured-reserve. He broke his fibula late in Sunday night’s loss to New England.

This leaves the Colts quite thin at running back. Trent Richardson and Daniel ‘Boom’ Herron are the only two running backs on the roster. Bradshaw is the second running back Indy lost to IR this season. Vick Ballard blew out his Achilles in training camp back in July.

The Colts are in need of an establishing running back. Richardson hasn’t been the back they thought they were getting from Cleveland and Herron doesn’t have the track record to prove they could rely on him in the playoffs.

We can already strike one name off the free agent running back list. The Colts said they are not interested in Ray Rice. He would need to be reinstated for Indy to even have the option of signing him.

The two names that popped up today are LeGarrette Blount and Ben Tate. Both came available on the market and have the ability to help Indianapolis fill their need.

Which running back is best suited for the Colts?

2014 Fantasy Football Sleepers – Training Camp Edition

I know you guys are waiting for me to write my yearly over/under post, but I’m waiting a few more weeks before I feel comfortable making my final predictions. In the mean time, head over to SportsBettingInfo.com¬†and glance over the lines.

This post is all about fantasy football sleepers. I’ve sorted them by position to make it easier to look through. I’ve mixed in the deep sleepers with ‘these players aren’t properly ranked’ sleepers. I’ve been pretty successful with my sleepers in the past and I hope to keep my hot streak intact.

Here are my early sleepers for the 2014 fantasy football season.
