NFL Analyses Fans Biometrics to Figure Out what They Like

NFL Analyses Fans Biometrics to Figure Out what They Like

NFL ratings are still falling. And if you thought the league didn’t care, you were dead wrong. There is so much to consider in the game of football than the sports betting odds for this season.

And chief amongst these considerations is the manner in which the game of football is viewed. You wouldn’t expect the NFL to care about the way you watch their games but that doesn’t seem to be the case. Continue Reading

Minnesota Excited for a Winter Super Bowl LII

Fans have refused to let the deflate-gate scandal go, so much so that all anyone seems to care about these days is the expression Roger Goodell will wear when he gives Tom Brady and company the Vince Lombardi Trophy on Sunday, just months after Roger punished Brady for his supposed involvement in the scandal. But this is what makes betting on the NFL fun. Continue Reading

Week 11: Texas A&M falls. Clemson, Alabama, Michigan Rise

Week 11: Texas A&M falls. Clemson, Alabama, Michigan Rise

The AP Polls are an interesting concept. Think about the fact that Nebraska lost to Ohio State on Saturday Evening. Yet, when the polls came out, the Buckeyes hadn’t moved (Number 6). What does that tell you? It definitely says more than the college football championship lines.

Of course, one might wonder whether any of this even really matters. Because of their performance, or lack thereof, against Ohio state, Nebraska fell 12 spots in the college football rankings. Continue Reading

Can One Expect NFL Game in the China

Can One Expect NFL Game in the China

It is hard to believe that NFL game will be performed in China. But this is going to happen. It will be for the first time when the U. S. sports league will be played in the China. The game might not get much attention from the people. More importantly, the players will not be that comfortable to play a regular season in the China. As the result, you might not expect much from the NFL betting lines.

Now the teams are preparing for the game. They are focusing more on the work instead of discussing the playing environment. They are planning how they will come back from the China after the game and will prepare themselves for the next trip that might be more challenging. It will be difficult to play a more competitive game after coming back from China. Mark Waller, the vice president of the NFL, told in an interview, their focus is not more on the game in China.

Postponed More Than Ready for Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe

Postponed More Than Ready for Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe

With the prestigious Group 1 Prix de l’Arc de Triopmhe at Chantilly now just a matter of weeks away, trainer Roger Varian believes that former Juddmonte International Winner Postponed is on target for yet another victory this time around. The four-year-old is undoubtedly the favourite in the horse racing tips among bookmakers, with a win at Knavesmire in August only further demonstrating his credentials for the meeting just outside Paris. Such a win confirmed Postponed as the best middle-distance turf horse in the world, with further high profile victories undoubtedly lying ahead. The victory also increased Posponed’s career earnings to more than £4,360,000, closing the gap on the all-time record for a British-trained horse.

However, despite being offered odds of 7/2 on in the horse racing tips at bookmakers Coral, Varian’s prized asset is unlikely to have things all his own way, with stiff competition coming in the shape of Harzand, Minding, and Order of St George among others. Up next for Harzand is the Qipco Irish Champion Stakes this weekend in a meeting that should suit the dual Derby winner. Trainer Dermot Weld has withdrawn Harzand from Sunday’s Prix Niel, which had been seen as a good warm-up option for October’s Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe. Despite this, the three-year-old remains just 5/1 with Coral for victory at Chantilly.

Elsewhere, Christophe Lemaire declared himself extremely happy after partnering Japan’s latest Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe challenger Makahiki in a gallop over 1m1f of Chantilly’s straight Piste des Reservoirs a few weeks ago. Makahiki is at 8/1 in the horse racing tips at Coral having arrived in France a matter of weeks ago, and having won four of his five races, including the Japanese Derby, the Yasuo Tomomichi trained horse is certainly one to look out for.

Favourite for November’s Meboure Cup, Order of St George, who has established himself as one of the best in Europe Europe with an emphatic success at Royal Ascot this year, is part of a possible team of seven for record-breaking trainer Aidan O’Brien. O’Brien is seeking to win the prize for the first time in his career, with Order of St George currently 10/1 on with Coral to win the race held at Flemington on November 1st.

LeBron breaks the Cleveland curse

LeBron breaks the Cleveland curse

Being a sports fan in Cleveland does not make for an easy life, considering the the rollercoaster of emotions the teams from the region have put their supporters through.

The Cleveland Browns are renowned for their collapses in the 1980s in the two AFC Championship matches against the Denver Broncos, nicknamed ‘The Drive’ and ‘The Fumble’.

Broncos quarterback John Elway led a 99-yard drive to lead his side to the Super Bowl, breaking Browns’ hearts, while one year later running back Ernest Byner fumbled on the goalline against the same opponent, spurning the chance to tie the game.

Cleveland have endured similar horror shows in the world of basketball and baseball. A young man by the name of LeBron James aimed to break the ‘Cleveland Curse’ after being drafted first overall by his home state club in 2003. Continue Reading

Joshua plans to unify heavyweight division ahead of Breazeale fight

Joshua plans to unify heavyweight division ahead of Breazeale fight

Ahead of his first title defence of his IBF heavyweight belt, Anthony Joshua has revealed plans to unify the heavyweight division, despite his relative inexperience in the sport. Never lacking in confidence, Joshua believes that he can reach far greater heights in the world of boxing, with the former Olympic gold medallist holding a perfect professional record from his sixteen fights to date. Joshua takes on American Dominic 88Breazeale at the end of the month, and has been training with the GB Olympic squad in preparation.

The Londoner is the overwhelming favourite with the bookmakers for the fight, with Betway offering odds of 1/33 for Joshua to come out victorious. With the fight scheduled to once again be held at the capital’s O2 Arena, the bright lights of Las Vegas will surely be waiting in the wings should Joshua impress against Breazeale. Joshua claimed the IBF title after a second round knockout of Charles Martin, and with 31 KO’s from 33 wins between himself and Breazeale, fans inside the area on June 25th could well be set for more fireworks. You can find his betting odds on Betway, as well as a full schedule of boxing match ups for the upcoming months.

Also on the card for the night of boxing is George Groves, as he returns to the ring against Martin Murray, in what is an eliminator for the WBA world super-middleweight title. Groves is the 2/5 favourite with Betway having defeated David Brophy by way of knock out last time around. Elsewhere, Chris Eubank Jr defends his British middleweight title against Welshman Tom Doran, with the son of the former great given favourable 1/25 on odds by Betway.

At the start of July, we see the much anticipated rematch between Tyson Fury and Wladimir Klitchsko, as the pair meet in Manchester. Despite Fury playing down his chances in the build up to the fight, having ridiculed his own weight and sparring performances, the WBA champion is 20/21 with Betway to claim victory on home soil. Joshua has long been linked with an all British heavyweight contest with Fury since his breakthrough in the division, and is 4/5 with Betway should a potential fight get the go ahead in the future.

Chicago Cubs Lose, Cosmos Safe

Chicago Cubs Lose, Cosmos Safe

In historic fashion, the curse of the Billy Goat again reared its ugly head on those Lovable Losers, the Chicago Cubs.

Game four of the National League Championship Series ended with the New York Mets beating the Cubbies by the score of 8-3, sweeping the team everyone thought was destined to win the World Series because Back to the Future predicted it.

The Mets hammered Chicago Cub pitcher Jason Hammel so bad he only lasted two innings innings in the post season game, ensuring the continuation of planetary rotation and balance within the cosmos. Continue Reading

Brains Donate NFL Players to Science

Brains Donate NFL Players to Science

Chicago, Illinois – As the 2015 NFL draft is set to begin tonight at 8pm (est), the scientific community added to the excitement with a groundbreaking announcement last night that the brains of current and former NFL players, Michael Vick and Terrell Owens, are donating their bodies for scientific research. The Brain Injury Association of America, based in Vienna, Virginia released the news during a charity event held annually as part of pre-draft traditions.

“This is a historic day for the National Football League and the Brain Injury Association!” The Association’s CEO, Susan H.
