Handicapping the NFC in 2019-20: 5 Teams Who Can Win Super Bowl 54

New Orleans fans had a pretty good argument for why the Saints, not the Los Angeles Rams, should have been the National Football Conference representative to face Bill Belichick’s New England Patriots dynasty at the Super Bowl in February. Not that things didn’t get a little ham-handed by the end of the controversy. While it […]

Super Bowl 54 Futures: Handicapping the AFC Following the 2019 NFL Draft

Prior to Super Bowl LIII in February, this handicapper felt strongly that the New England Patriots would have a hard time moving the pigskin against Ndamukong Suh and the L.A. defense. I was right. The Pats barely scored a touchdown in the contest. Tom Brady did not throw a touchdown pass. But my overall handicap […]

How the XFL Can Succeed Where the Alliance of American Football Failed

“There is no Big Lie,” says Don Draper. “There is no system. The universe is indifferent.” It was hard not to think of that quote while watching the Alliance of American Football suddenly fold on itself like a flan in a cupboard. Conspiracy theories abound. Dan Patrick believes that the CEO-culprit Tom Dundon simply wanted […]

Sportsbooks That Offer Odds on the Australian Football League

There is a slight boo-boo on one of my previous posts about the Australian Football League, and it came about chiefly because the AFL was not supposed to be a topic to begin with. I told the editing staff I was writing about gambling on overseas events at sports betting sites early in the AM […]

2019 NFL Draft: Kyler Murray Overtakes Nick Bosa as Odds-On Favorite for #1 Overall

There’s a delightful episode of Cheap Seats in which the hosts pretend to be 100% into the “kayfabe,” or belief in the legitimacy of a pro wrestling match. “Oh…my…god,” says one of the wiseacres, “there…are…only…2…minutes…left…in…our…TV…time. I…wonder…if…we…will…see…a…pin. Oh, look there’s the pin now! What timing!” Please take this introduction to our 2019 NFL Draft betting preview […]

Surprise: The Alliance of American Football is a Rare Treat for Gamblers

There is an iconic scene from Mad Men in which Bert Cooper, the company patriarch, learns that Don Draper – aka Dick Whitman – is likely an identity thief and a wartime deserter. Cooper stops to consider a few things, namely that Draper/Whitman is the advertising genius of a generation, and tells the opportunistic whistle-blower […]

College Football Playoff: Clemson and Alabama’s National Championship Odds for 2019-20

Seldom is a long-burning question answered as emphatically as it was in the CFP national-title scrum on January 7th, 2019. Clemson 44, Alabama 16. “I thought we could pull away,” said Tiger head coach Dabo Swinney a few minutes afterward. Swinney had the rock-solid conviction of a man who is often, well, all up in […]

AAF Week 3 Vegas Odds and Prediction: Arizona Hotshots at Salt Lake Stallions

With the AAF and the Canadian Football League combining to fill up the spring and summer months, American football is finally becoming a year-round sport on state-side TV. But gamblers, fans, and players alike are still trying to get themselves oriented in late February. To wit – the Arizona Hotshots are 2-0 and the Salt […]

2019 Grey Cup Futures: How to Gamble Wisely on the Canadian Football League

How about a little pigskin, ‘ay? Like many fans south of the U.S.-Canada border, my early (and present) exposure to the Canadian Football League was/is filled with rules misunderstandings and head-scratching questions. Why do the receivers look like a squadron of Zero fighters taking off? Why are there only 3 downs? Why are the American […]

Introduction to the Wild World of Super Bowl Prop Betting

Super Bowl 53 is approaching fast, and on Sunday the American betting public will place more than $6 billion in wagers on the big game. So says the American Gaming Association (AGA) anyhow, as the casino and sportsbook industry lobby group regularly publishes its predictions for annual Super Bowl handle. But while many bettors will […]

Some Crazy (and Not So Crazy) Super Bowl Bets

The Super Bowl is among the most wagered on games in the world. I know that when I worked in the corporate world, my colleagues would circulate “football squares” to purchase, which was a grid that allowed you to match the last number of the score of each team. If the last number matched at […]

The Funniest Sportsbook Prop Bets for Super Bowl LIII

Prop bet mania has taken over the Super Bowl. How do we know this? Look at the betting sites. The totem pole of markets at a sportsbook is easy to determine. You could get a pretty good idea of the schedules and exploits of the most popular teams in the world just from messing around […]
