Betting Picks: 2017 College Football Over/Under Season Wins

The 2017-18 NCAA football regular season has already started (sort of). There have only been a few games played and most teams start the season late this week or over the weekend.

I have had a pretty confident on these regular season wins prop bets, but just wanted to be 100% sure a guy like USC’s Sam Darnold or Penn State’s Saquon Barkley didn’t suffer a major injury during a preseason scrimmage.

I’ve been working on these picks for quite awhile. I’d work on it for a few days and then come back to it. I’m a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to picking over/under totals.

There are a lot of even win totals, so if I pick ‘PUSH’, it’s mostly just advising you to avoid betting on this team, since the win total will most likely be the real win total. I don’t want you to basically loan your betting site x-amount of dollars just to get back the same amount in early-December.

Betting Picks: 2017 NFL Over/Under Season Wins

We are a little over a week away from the start of the 2017 NFL regular season. This is the very last minute to start thinking about possible bets for over/under regular season team wins. I wanted to wait on this post since injuries have affected my decisions in a big way. Also, position battles swung a few decisions, like Deshone Kizer winning the starting quarterback job in Cleveland.

We didn’t just look at the lines and guess at our over/under picks. We went through the entire schedule in the NFL and picked every game.

A lot can happen from now until the end of the season (injuries, coaching changes, etc). We will attempt to help you make a better decision on which teams to lay bets on.

2016-17 NBA Awards Odds

The regular season may be over, but the NBA has yet to dole out any hardware to the league’s best players.

On June 26th, players will wear their best (or extravagant) suit and anxiously wait if hear their name called.

Russell Wesbrook had a crazy season. He averaged a triple-double for the first time since Oscar Robinson did it decades ago. He should be a shoo-in for the MVP award.

The other awards being handed out on June 26th are Rookie of the Year, Coach of the Year and Sixth Man Award.

All four awards are heavily favored, so there aren’t any dark horses I’d recommend.

nba cleveland cavaliers 2017 nba championship betting oddsThe confetti is still clogging the drains in the streets of Cleveland, but that doesn’t stop Vegas from releasing championship betting odds for 2016-17 NBA season.

Teams like the Indiana Pacers, Orlando Magic and the New York Knicks have certainly helped their odds thanks to some deals they made last week.

Are the Cleveland Cavaliers early favorites to repeat?

Cleveland Early Favorite to Win 2016 NBA Finals

LeBron James Cleveland Cavaliers 2016 NBA FinalsThe Golden State Warriors just won the 2015 NBA Finals and top sports betting sites already released future odds on which NBA team will win the 2016 NBA Finals.

LeBron James nearly single-handedly forced a Game 7 in a series in which the Cavs didn’t have anyone left but LeBron from their opening night starting lineup.

Cleveland (3/1) is the early favorite to win next year’s NBA Finals, but a lot can happen in a year. The Cavs have nearly everyone coming back and maybe next time around they will all be healthy.

Are there any dark horse teams that could contend for the 2016 NBA Finals?

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.
