Jordan Cameron Won't Play Against Cincinnati Bengals

Cleveland Browns Pro Bowl player Jordan Cameron has suffered a concussion, and will not be able to play against the Cincinnati Bengals in the next game, news sources report. The player has suffered his third concussion in three seasons, on the 26th of October, in a match against Oakland. He had to sit out his team’s game against Tampa Bay, and will be sidelined for the Browns’ match against the Cincinnati Bengals on Friday.

The Cleveland Browns might be forced to play without two of their wide receivers, Andrew Hawkins and Taylor Gabriel. Hawkins, the team’s best receiver with 39 catches, is sidelined because of a leg injury, while Gabriel is likely to sit out the match because of a shoulder injury. Two more team members’ participation in the next game is questionable – defensive ends Phil Taylor and Billy Winn. Taylor is recovering from a knee injury, due to which he has undergone surgery. He has just returned to practice, and not likely to play this week. Winn suffers from problems with a toe.

Jordan Cameron Won't Play Against Cincinnati Bengals

Even without these players, the Browns have the chance to overtake their state neighbors, solidifying their position as a contender for the playoffs. Also, the Cleveland team has the opportunity to break their negative record – they haven’t won any games on the road since last September. The team faces the Bengals with first place at stake for the first time since 1986. This will be their opportunity to impose themselves on the playfield. Besides, the team hasn’t been in the playoffs for over a decade – they can change that too.

Cincinnati yielded 132 on the ground to the Jaguars in Sunday’s 33-23 victory, but benefited from 154 and two TDs on 24 carries from rookie Jeremy Hill. Likely to start again for the injured Giovani Bernard (hip and clavicle), Hill broke open a three-point game with his 60-yard score with 8:04 remaining last weekend. Hill, who averages 4.7 yards per carry while rushing for 349, leads all rookie backs with five TDs. A.J. Green caught three passes for 44 yards and a touchdown in his return from a three-game absence due to a toe injury. Green hopes for a better play after he recorded nine receptions and 58 yards while often being covered by Pro Bowler Joe Haden in the two 2013 meetings with the Browns. It’s questionable if tackle Andre Smith will have the opportunity to cover Dalton after he suffered a sprained left ankle on Sunday.

All things considered, we have an exciting game ahead of us this week, good enough to keep us away from our favorite internet casino. Can’t wait…

Playing Big in the NFL

The National Football League offers spectacular events that showcase athleticism, determination, and uncertain victories. It’s a sport that’s enjoyed by adults and children and generates billions of dollars in revenue for its franchises.

NFL Mania

NFL games combine physical skill with tactical plays and strategy. Players of each time specialize in different skills and possess unique abilities relative to speed, strength, and agility.

The connection fans feel to their chosen teams is a result of the ability to identify with players and anticipate the plays and strategies used by coaches to score a final win.

The Major NFL Events

There are a number of events that attract the attention and fervor of its fans. The annual National Football League draft starts the season as teams choose new members from a pool of eligible college football players.

A team receives a draft position according to its previous year’s performance. The team that came in last receives the first position in the draft. Each team has the option to choose a player or exchange draft positions or players with another team to secure their best roster.

Understanding how drafts work can maximize your betting experience. Using resources like William Hill NFL betting odds lets you keep track of the current wagers being offered for NFL games.

Although the Pro Bowl is considered a “vanity” event by many, it is still one of the NFL’s major annual events. It occurs at the end of the season after the completion of the conference championships. The Pro Bowl precedes the NFL’s main event: the Super Bowl.

The Super Bowl marks the end of the NFL season and is the ultimate achievement for an NFL team. The event began as a result of the merger between the National Football League and the American Football League.

The leagues were established into conferences, from which each would produce a champion who would go on to compete in the Super Bowl. The event is one of the biggest revenue grossing events in the world.

Betting the Odds in NFL

Betting on NFL games can be done using a number of systems. The point spread is the most popular used by fans of the NFL. The spread is determined by odds makers in order to have a balance in wagers.

The money line is often used when it is more advantageous than point-spread betting. Las Vegas is one place where money lines are used for professional football games. It requires that your chosen team only win the game regardless of scores.

Futures are also used to bet the odds on next year’s Super Bowl champions. Throughout the year, odds makers determine the abilities of teams and adjust betting lines accordingly to offer wagers.

Kiffin set for Cowboys split

It is looking increasingly likely that Monte Kiffin won’t be returning to the Dallas Cowboys coaching staff this year. The veteran coach was handed the role as the franchise’s assistant head coach/defense. That was a position in which Kiffin performed mainly as an on-field consultant. The previous season had seen the decorated assistant coach join as defensive coordinator after two years at USC. That was in a year in which the defense ranked as one of the worst in the Cowboys’ history. And while Dallas have kept Kiffin in and around the coaching set-up, it looks as though the decision has been taken to part ways.

While the Cowboys are being tipped to be serious contenders next season by punters heading to the likes of betfair, there could be a number of changes made to both the playing and coaching staff during this offseason. Kiffin may well be one of the first out of the door now the season has come to an end, but the veteran coach will be able to look back at a stellar career in the NFL if he does decide to hang up his clipboard and whistle.

After spells with the Packers, Bills, Jets, Vikings, Saints, Buccaneers and now the Cowboys, there are few more experienced defensive coaches than Kiffin in NFL history. The Nebraska native enjoyed the majority of his success during his time in Tampa Bay, playing a crucial role in the franchise boasting a top-10 defense in 11 out of 13 seasons between 1996 and 2008. During that time he tasted Super Bowl glory in 2002 in a season in which the Buccaneers made the gamblers happy to win their one and only championship.

After leaving the Buccaneers in 2008, Kiffin spent time working in college football, including spells in Tennessee and the University of Southern California, before returning to the big leagues two years ago with Dallas. His time with the Cowboys might not have been as successful as he would have wanted, but Kiffin will always be remembered fondly in Dallas.

Jets move quickly to sign Johnson

While New York Jets general manager John Idzik had come in for criticism for his perceived lack of activity this off-season, that all changed the minute Chris Johnson became available. The former 2,000-yard running run back had only been in the free agency for 11 days before Idzik managed to convince him to move to New York on a two-year deal worth $8 million with an addition $1 million in additional bonuses during the two years.

Johnson is coming off the back of relatively disappointing season in which he rushed for 1.077 yards, scoring 10 touchdowns on a career-low 3.9 yards-per-carry average – but the Jets wasted little time in moving to sign the 28-year old and adding him to their power-running offense. Johnson underwent knee surgery on a torn meniscus at the end of last season but has been passed fit enough to return to full pre-season training with his new team-mates.

With many people writing off Johnson after last season, the running back has made it clear he is determined to make the most of this opportunity in New York and prove the many doubters wrong in the process.

“I have a fresh start. Now I am going to go out there with a chip on my shoulder. I know a lot of people are doubting me. I want to prove everybody wrong who has doubts in me,” said Johnson.

The bet365 odds may be giving the Jets much hope of making the playoffs this season, but betting fans would do well to reserve their final judgement on this Jets team’s hopes this year until nearer the start of the season. New York head coach Rex Ryan oversaw an improvement in results last year and has more than enough talent in this squad to be able to finish this season with a winning record for the first time since 2010.

While Johnson may not be the same runner as he was back in 2009, the three-time Pro Bowler still has plenty to offer a New York team that puts most of its focus into having a run-focused offensive unit, with Geno Smith now expected to win the quarterback battle with Michael Vick. Johnson joins a running back division containing Chris Ivory, Bilal Powell and Mike Goodson, but there is still plenty of time for the roster to take a significantly different look before now and the beginning of the season.

In what will be his seventh professional season, Johnson has never finished a campaign without breaking 1,000 yards rushing, and the Jets will be hoping their new arrival can continue that record this year. While Johnson is an ideal signing New York, coach Ryan will be aware that he needs to manage the running back, both physically and mentally, if he is going to get the best out of his new man. And with an in-form Johnson at his disposal, Ryan will be confident of surprising the odds and leading the Jets back into the playoffs.

Betting on the Super Bowl

Could this be the Seahawks’ year at last? The side from Seattle has never tasted victory in the Super Bowl, but their fans will be fantasising that 2014 is going to be the year that this record is broken. They will point to the superb performances that the team has put in during the regular season – which has led them to the top of the NFC West. They will also point to the genuine quality players they have in their team, typified by Russell Wilson at quarterback, and it would be difficult to dispute any of this – as well as their 5/2 odds-on status. So you should be gambling on them for it, right?

Betting on the Super Bowl
A lot of people will be, and bets on the Seahawks for the Super Bowl are as good as any other, but they will not have it all their own way between now and February. The team just behind them in the eyes of the bookies, the Broncos (10/3) are also really strong –, as they have shown in topping the AFC West Division. The Patriots, at the head of the AFC East, are another team that has everything it takes, and the odds of 14/1 on them could be more attractive if you want a wager that offers you a shot at a bigger windfall should it come through. Of course, if the size of the payout is the biggest issue for you, then playing $5 Million Touchdown at www.luckynuggetcasino.com will be the best option of all.
After all, what Super Bowl bet is going to win you $5 million – which is the size of the potential jackpot you could scoop by playing this NFL video slot game. Like most of the other sports themed slot machines at these sites, it is also a really fine gaming experience – with the bonus game revolving around trying to score the winning point in a simulated American football match a particularly impressive example of the game bonuses that these games offer. If all this is not enough to convince you, consider the fact that you can even play games like this at NFL matches now, just by downloading them to your phone or tablet from a mobile casino.

Cleveland Brown a tempting bet

While the Cleveland Browns started the season as firm Betfair outsiders for this year’s Super Bowl title, the franchise’s odds have dramatically shortened over the course of the offseason. After starting this year with odds of 200/1 with some bookmakers, Cleveland currently find themselves down to 66/1 with Betfair after an interesting few months for the Browns.

While the main reason behind the shift in odds has been due to a big bet being made on Cleveland over the past few weeks, the Browns have breathed fresh life into their offense after selecting the highly-rated quarterback Johnny Manziel in the draft. The 2012 Heisman Trophy winner had been linked with a variety of NFL teams ahead of the draft but it was Cleveland who secured the Texan’s services after selecting him 22nd overall.

Before Manziel can start thinking about making his NFL debut, the youngster will be tasked with learning a whole new play-book. Manziel will battle it out with Brian Hoyer for the quarterback position with the Browns this season, adding some enviable headaches for the Cleveland management. While Hoyer is expected to start the new NFL campaign as Cleveland’s number-one, Manziel has been tipped by Betfair punters to still have a key role to play for the Browns in his rookie year.

Perhaps more exciting than the signing of Manziel is that of cornerback Justin Gilbert. The Browns used their first pick to select the 22-year old eighth overall in this year’s draft, and Gilbert has been backed to be one of Cleveland’s stars during a fascinating season for the franchise. With speed to burn and power to match, Gilbert could well be the cornerback the Browns have been looking for.

Even though it may be far too early to be talking about the Browns as possible Super Bowl contenders, the franchise certainly look a more tempting bet than they did this time last year.

Don’t bet against Denver

We are at the halfway mark of the NFL season and we already know who are going to win the Super Bowl. From the way it is going it looks nigh on impossible that the Denver Broncos will not be winning their third championship; they are currently red hot favourites with Betfair to make it happen.

There is no such thing as a dead certain in sport, but, in this case there is. The current Super Bowl favourites were the most dominant side in the NFL last season before coming unstuck in the Super Bowl to the Seattle Seahawks 43-8. The reason for this was the quality of the Seahawks defence, they neutralised Peyton Manning and the so often rampant Broncos offense. However, this season the Seahawks have been dicey. They are currently 5-3, a record not good enough to win their division and currently not good enough to merit a playoff spot – if that happens you may as well post the Vince Lombardi Trophy to Denver now.

Take Seattle out of the equation and there is no side who can cope with Denver. People run out of superlatives for describing Manning. The quarterback, nicknamed “The Sheriff”, is a ring marshal on the gridiron. His arm has destroyed countless opposition defences in the past 15 years.

Peyton Manning by Jeffrey Beall

Manning will be the first to tell you that he owes a lot to wide receiver Demaryius Thomas, who is the best in America. These two combined are something else. In the seven games they have played together this season, Manning has thrown Thomas seven touchdown passes as well as for 767 yards. Simply, these two are too good for any defence but the Seahawks. Chuck in Wes Welker, Montee Ball and Emmanuel Sanders and you have the best offence seen in the NFL for quite some time.

In John Fox, Denver have a coach capable of leading them to the Super Bowl, he just needs to win it. He addressed the problems of last year’s defeat by strengthening his defence, most notably with DeMarcus Ware. The sacking machine arrived from Dallas in the summer and has added some real mettle to the Broncos defence.

When you have the best QB and offence in the league, combined with one of the best coaches and defences then you have to expect Denver to win the Super Bowl. If they don’t, which is nearly utopian to think of, then it will have to go down as one of the biggest upsets in the history of the sport.

Free bets on touchdown

If you love the NFL and you also enjoy a wager on it now and again, then there’s a great way you can have a free bet and some genuine excitement. And this comes just about as close as you can get to the real thing.

Anyone registering to play the 32Red online casino who hasn’t done so before will receive a free introductory bonus of $32 for every $20 deposited. If you then have a look around the site at the different options available, you’ll pretty soon find your way to “Touchdown”.

Go to the site’s “games arcade” followed by the “virtual sports” tab and you’re there. This game is a virtual re-enactment of the whole NFL season, from the regular season matches all the way to the Super Bowl. Each week’s virtual play, with various gambling options, lasts for one and a half minutes.

With the game, you may decide to bet on the Handicap or the Money Line – on results of different regular season matches and play-offs. But you may also decide to have a gamble on who’s going to win each different division – or on the Super Bowl outright.

You can then choose single bets or multiple bets with up to 247 different combinations. If you click on the ‘i’ for information depicted alongside each fixture, there’s a form guide to help you make your decisions – showing the most recent six results for every team and the last ten seasons’ scores on this head-to-head game – as well as the current streak. The results are then displayed every two minutes – including all the scores at the end of each play period.

You can also find each division’s stats from both conferences (AFC or NFC) by choosing the appropriate link on the right of your screen during your betting period. If you want to gamble on an individual game, simply click the odds displayed adjacent to each team in the box. This will then open up a betting box, and you can choose your stake money. You will also be given different multiple bet choices depending on the number of selections you make (doubles, trebles etc.).

You can place a wager on your selection to win any of the divisions – or the Super Bowl itself before the virtual season gets underway. If you click the odds button next to your choice on the league table, the pick then appears in the betting box. Next, simply choose your stake and place the bet.

The games are decided by a random number generator which uses the system’s rating for each team. In other words, it’s all about making “weighted” choices. But it’s also fun to bet on your favourite team, of course.

The great thing about Touchdown is that you can play it for free just by playing in demo mode only if you prefer. And it’s particularly great for passing the time on long journeys – playing on your mobile device.

NFL Week 4 Betting Lines Preview

As we approach the first quarter mark of the regular season, many questions still linger as to which teams will move into the fast approaching playoff spotlight. While the Panthers and Packers will enjoy this year’s first “get out of jail free” cards, the rest of the field must continue their postseason march. Despite the uncertainty of what the rest of the regular season holds, the matchups this week are surprisingly even matched in regard to win vs. loss.

Looking past the fact that the Falcons are 1-2 so far this season, a QB showdown between Brady and Ryan is always an enticing prospect. While Belichick and company have not faltered in taking care of business during these first weeks, the Falcons and Patriots are tied at 6-6 in the regular season. Atlanta stands as good a chance as any to complicate New England’s current pattern of dominance.

After a loss in Week 3 against coach Reid and the Chiefs, the Eagles find themselves in a very realistic position to go 1-3 as they face what might be the most dangerous group of individuals in the National Football League. The Broncos continued to roll, not to anyone’s surprise, over the less than impressive Raiders on Monday night. After handing one over to Coach Reid and the Chiefs Thursday night Philly finds themselves very much in need of a win if they want to feel good about their chances for the rest of the season.

While they might have had success at shutting them down in the preseason, the Miami Dolphins will have a much more difficult time of getting the “W” this week against an undefeated Saints team coming off of a blowout win over Arizona. Undefeated themselves, the Dolphins will be headed to New Orleans after their victory on Sunday against Matt Ryan and the Falcons. With a spread of only 6 points this one is a tough pick.

After yet another loss for the Giants in Week 3, things aren’t looking any better as they must now face the unbeaten Chiefs, and at home no less. While Eli and his entourage have struggled thus far, they remain only a 4.5 point underdog to the Chiefs, who historically are 2-10 against the Giants in regular season play. If the Giants are planning on turning things around, this would be a good week to do so.

Sports Betting: Fun vs. Business

Fun

If you read some popular sports betting sites they show absolute disdain for any bettors who like to just bet on their team or go with their gut instinct. To them if you don’t break down everything from the weather conditions to the players personal relationship problems then you’re not well informed enough.

While their is plenty to learn from people who take it that seriously their is also a time to tell them to Fuck Off!

The fact of the matter is putting a few clams down on a game makes it more fun to watch. The first year I bet on sports at all I bet on my home team (The Eagles) every single game no matter what with no regard. Let’s just say that it’s good I excel at on-line poker because my winnings there covered up my losses on games.

Even now as I have gotten more experienced I still always put a few bucks down on the Birds to win no matter what just because I want to. If the line looks bad I’m not going to throw down any B. Franklin’s but a 10 or 20 spot isn’t going to seriously damage my bankroll.

If you’re just getting started in sports betting I recommend you try Bodog. They have the lowest minimum deposit at $20.00 and you can bet as low as $1 or $5 bucks on games where some other sites have $10 or $20 dollar minimums. Of course they are good for bigger bets too and I think they have great customer service.

 

Business

Their is a lot that can be said for treating sports betting like a serious investment/business. If you are disciplined and smart about your bets and money management you can easily make a 25% to 200% ROI in a single season. That crushes what’s considered a good stock market return (10% to 15% annually). A lot of what I know about money management in sports betting comes from my knowledge of on-line poker as the management of risk between the two are very similar. I would say it’s smart to have a minimum of 50 betting units in your bankroll and optimal to have at least 100. This way you can safely ride out the ups and downs without letting your emotions take over and betting too big to try and chase losses.

Personally, I don’t think I would make a great handicapper because so many outside factors go into decisions. I do ok on my gut instinct and base knowledge but I actually prefer to follow along the picks of a proven winner for my main bets. This season I am going with Kevin from NFLBettingpicks.org. He’s done really well this year and is up an incredible  87 betting units between hockey, baseball and now he won his first football bet on the Packers Vs. Saints season opener.

I’m gonna spill the beans here, it’s $85.00 to get Kevin’s picks for the entire NFL season. Some other guys charge $300 or more for the season and others even charge $30.00 per pick and upwards of $150.00 for a couple weeks. Kevin’s picks also have a money back guarantee (not that you’ll need it) so if you start off and don’t like his program you can return it for a full refund. At the very least, you should check out his site HERE as he does give out some of his picks for free.

 

No matter how you decide to treat your sports betting efforts, I hope you crush it this season!!!
