Actually, it’s not quite easy to make money with football bets. Actually, most people tend to lose their shirts if they put them on the wrong team. That is a simple rule to follow, though. The rule is to bet on the Packers, and anything else that a team is playing in. If you put the Packers on your wish list, you might win a bit, but you’re probably going to have to learn how to cover a lot of different situations, and bet against some terrible teams.
If the Packers were a really good team this year, they would have beaten the unbeaten Patriots, and probably would have lost to the undefeated Seahawks. The Packers didn’t have the great record that everyone would want them to have, but they did manage to beat the Carolina Panthers. Green Bay’s D played the runagemuck perfectly, and their defense is the type that makes you afraid to hand over your money. Though, in the playoffs, you can’t look at any team as invincible. In the first playoff game, the Redskins crushed the Broncos, and you can’t look at that Seattle team as unbeatable. They’re a good team, but they’re going to be challenged. They played the Packers Saturday night, and it appeared that they got a couple of breaks, because the Packers pulled the upset.
If you know that the Packers are a good betting team, and you watch the games, you can identify the weaknesses in every team. Which team do you think has the biggest weaknesses? The Colts? Of course not. The Cowboys are pretty vulnerable, and if the Cowboys can’t shut down Tony Romo, I don’t think there’s any way that they can beat the Patriots. Is it possible for the Cowboys to beat the Pats? No. It’s also not possible for the Colts to beat the Raiders. It’s possible to say that the Colts will cover the spread, but I think there will be many more low scoring games in the playoffs.
In the 2006 season, most people predicted that the Colts would cover the spread. That was the case in the first round against Baltimore, but not in the second against San Diego. Most people believed that the Chargers would win the game in San Diego, but they didn’t cover the spread. This fact continued to be true in the second round against the Dallas Cowboys.
In the final round, the Patriots and Cowboys played a meaningless game. Most people believed that the meaningless game would not decide who would win the Super Bowl or the Super Bowl would be decided by the final game of the regular season. However, the unscheduled game against the Eagles, played in Philadelphia,Pennsylvania, substantially influenced the Super Bowl prediction for that Sunday.
At the start of the season, people expected the same thing with the Packers. Normally, they were a good team, but at the start of the season, they had a lot of things going against them, such aswasher pots in Green Bay,Getting behind easily in the playoffs, and so on.Fast forward to the present, the Packers are still a good team, but they have what it takes to lose to anyone on any given Sunday.2. Is the NFC better than the AFC?
In my opinion, no. The AFC is just a little stronger than the NFC in terms of pure talent. I actually believe there is a bit of a sliding scale when making the Super Bowl selections between the AFC and the NFC.3. Was last week’s performance a fluke?
If a team loses a game at home, but then loses the next game at home, then pursuing reporters is not a wise strategy.4. gauging by the betting Trends, it looks like it will be an easy win Sunday for the New England Patriots.5. Roger Goodell should probably worry more about players’ touchdowns than whether or not they can cover the spread.
BDB, BoDog.ws: It should be an easy win for the Patriots, but they still have to play the Giants in New York. Tom Coughlin has done a tremendous job in raising the standards on both the field and in personnel.6. Sunday’s lights out game is far more attractive to Las Vegas than the Detroit Lions.7. The best Friday the 13th is San Francisco at Arizona.8. If you don’t believe in turnovers, teams with big-play offenses will always win, and more often than not, they also cover the spread.
LWY, BoDog.ws: The Packers are the best in the league at creating big plays with explosive offenses, and they are the only team that can score from anywhere.9. Remember the final game of the 2008 season between the Steelers and the Cardinals. The Steelers were 9-point favorites with the result being a 19-17 tie, even though the Steelers were 9-point underdogs.
