10 Bets to Take on the NFL season
Millions of people bet on sporting events everyday. With the NFL season kicking-off tonight, I have come up with a list of 10 things that are worth risking money on in Vegas. There are some over/unders on team wins and individual stats for certain players. I some it all up with my take on the Super Bowl. Each slide will include the Vegas odds and my takes on them.
Patriots Over/Under 11.5 Wins
I'm taking the over here. I can see the Pats win upwards of 13 games. The offense is high-powered and Brady is back.
Tony Romo Over/Under 3750 Passing Yards
Despite getting rid of some "baggage," I take the under here. Romo not only lost Jessica Simpson, but als T.O. I think in the end losing T.O. will hurt more.
LT Over/Under 1150 Rush Yards
LT will play like the LT of old. He will bounce back and rush for more than 1150 yards.
Raiders Over/Under 5.5 Wins
If standing, sit down! I'm going ove 5.5 wins. The silver and black will still be pretty bad, but I see some potential. The Chargers are the only dominant force in the AFC West.
Tom Brady Over/Under 31 TD Passes
This one is simple. Take over 31. You can even tease it to over 35 in my opinion. Brady is back and poised to have another huge season.
Reggie Bush Over/Under 7 Total TDs
I know he has been injured, but I'm going over. He is just so versatile that he can score in many ways.
Adrian Peterson Over/Under 1550 Total Yards
At first, I thought it was 1550 rushing yards, and I would have taken the over. Then I saw it was total yards. This guy could eclipse 2000 total yards.
Randy Moss Over/Under 12.5 TDs
With Brady back, Moss will have another huge campaign. Take the over here. This is another one that I would tease. I can see Moss catching more than 15 TDs again.
Brett Favre Over/Under 18.5 INTs
Despite throwing more picks than anyone in history and coming off a season of more than 20 picks, I would take the under. With an excellent running game, Favre will basically just have to manage the game and not turn the ball over.
Super Bowl Picks
In the AFC, the Pats will return to form with Brady back and go to the Super Bowl. Take them at 2/1 odds as AFC champs. The Eagles are the pre-season favorites in Vegas, but I take the Vikings at 11/2 odds. The Eagles may be a better team, but they have plenty of tough games in their division; whereas, the Vikings play in a fairly easy division that they should run away with, meaning the NFC championship would be in Minnesota. The Vikings are very good at running and stopping the run. The only problem is that the Pats are so good at airing it out, that they can score in a hurry. So, I'd go with the Vikes. In the Super Bowl, I take the Pats over the Vikes. The pre-season odds are at 7/2 for the Pats to win the Super Bowl.
