Even those following the NHL trade deadline had an eye on the NFL combine over the weekend as the best in college football strutted their stuff for scouts and executives alike, but when it comes to the draft, all everyone wants to know is, who will take Robert Griffin III with the second pick?
1. Andrew Luck – Indianapolis
There is no way that the Colts don’t take Stanford’s Luck, the best quarterback prospect since a guy named Peyton Manning, who Indy fans know all too well.
2. Robert Griffin III – Cleveland
The Heisman winner stole the 2011 season with his incredible athleticism, and he’ll be a better pick for success than his school when it comes to March Madness betting success.
3. Matt Kalil – Minnesota
Kalil may be the best non-skill player in the draft and the Vikings have to bolster their offensive line if they’re going to get a feel of what Christian Ponder can do.
4. Justin Blackmon – St. Louis
Cleveland and Washington are in the running for St. Louis’ No.2 pick, but the Rams can’t be sure that Blackmon will be there sixth, when the Redskins are slated to pick and they really need another receiver for Sam Bradford.
5. Trent Richardson – Tampa Bay
Richardson will go in this spot, although the Bucs could also look at LSU cornerback Mo Claiborne, but either way, look for an SEC player to head to Tampa Bay, who don’t have much to lose in the eyes of sport betting players.

While MLB betting season is almost here, some bettors are probably thinking about their World Series futures. The same goes for NFL betting players, even though the Super Bowl was only a couple weeks ago, because it’s never too early to start wagering on professional football. Here are a few factors to consider as you prepare to pick your Super Bowl winner.
Who Moved Where?
Tracking player movement is one of the biggest factors in figuring out next season’s Super Bowl winners, although you should probably look towards the teams that make the fewest changes. All you have to do is look at Philadelphia, who picked up a lot of talent during the last offseason, but they never really gelled until it was too late. Players that work with pay head systems will tell you to find the teams that have continuity,
Who Got Hurt?
Injuries are also going to play a role in what team you pick to win the Super Bowl, because a team’s chances could be doomed before the season even ends if they lose a star player. A team can also be affected by a player who is coming back from injury; it’s going to take them a few games to get back to their best.
Experience Is Key
Teams are going to have players of all ages suiting up for them, but look for teams that have older players at positions like quarterback, running back and linebacker. These are the players that are going to have the biggest affect on a team throughout the season, and chances are, they’ll be favorites at most sportsbooks.

2012 March Madness betting players are sorting through a number of different options for the NCAA Tournament that is right around the corner, but when it comes to odds for the Super Bowl in 2013, sports betting players will have their hands full going through the options if they want to get an early futures pick.
Green Bay (+500) and New England (+550) have come out of the gate as the favorites, and the Packers fell well short of their Super Bowl defense, as well as a perfect regular season, while the Patriots were “upset” by the New York Giants (+1200), although even UFC fans will tell you that it wasn’t much of an upset. New Orleans (+600) and Houston (+900) join the fray, while Philadelphia (+1100) is being tipped to bounce back after a tough 2011 season that followed a number of signings.
Then you have the Giants, Baltimore (+1200), Pittsburgh (+1300), an upstart Detroit team (+1400), and an intriguing San Francisco squad (+1600) that probably should have won the NFC championship game against the Giants. You can never forget about Dallas (+1600), while San Diego (+1600) is being tipped to get back in the hunt and the New York Jets (+1600), who had a public meltdown at the end of last season.
It is still very in the offseason, but it’s never too early to get a headstart on Super Bowl odds, so be sure to keep ears open for signings and injuries before you head to your preferred sports betting websites.

Whether you write a hockey blog or you are a soccer fan, you have probably ran across NFL betting odds if you live in North America; quite simply, it’s the most popular sports league in this area of the world and people love to wager on it. However, it can be tough to come away with success, unless you know a few tricks and here is one that could end up injecting your sports betting account with some life (and by life, we mean money).
Basically, it takes a lot of research (those playing March Madness odds will hear that word a lot over the next couple of months), but it can come in handy during the football season. There is a system that takes numerous variables into account and then a grade or score is assigned to a team. It includes factors like weather, injuries, overall play, how a team is trending, and so on.
After that is all broken down, it is simple math: if there is a matchup between two teams where there is a 30-point difference between the two sides, than that is a game you should wager on. But anything under 30 points and the system sees that matchup as a big risk.
There is a lot that goes into this system, but you can find the nuances of it on the internet and if you can master it, you will be laughing all the way to the bank next season as you’re making your online betting picks for the NFL.
