Football Betting News – Bears Offense Show Big Potential...

Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler was a bit banged up and bruised days after battling it out with the Green Bay Packers on Monday night. As hurt as he was, Cutler got some relief from the early advantage brought about by the Bears’ fresh offense. The Chicago Bears are now 3-0 and the only unbeaten team in the NFC, with its offense providing its share of highlights under new coordinator Mike Martz. “We’re growing, we’re still young, we’re still pretty young in this offense,” Cutler said.  “I think Mike is still trying to figure out exactly where we’re at, what he can call in certain situations, what we can handle on a week to week basis as far as game-planning wise, what we can handle during the game, what he can go do, what doesn’t really work for us.  So, like everyone is still kind of growing and gelling together.” Even Martz isn’t sure how good the Bears’ offense can be. “I really don’t know, and that’s the fun part of this,” he said.  “There’s enough talent here, and it’s exciting because each week we continue to get better.” The Bears seem to have no difficulty getting the big plays, with 12 completions for 20 or more yards tying them for fifth in that category.  But when they needed a yard on fourth down at the goal line, like what happened against Green Bay or in the opener against...

Football – The Oakland Raiders...

One of the most colorful franchises in all of professional football is without a doubt the Oakland Raiders. Based out of Oakland, CA, the Raiders are yet another original AFL member that came into the NFL during the merger in 1970. As a member of the AFC West, the Raiders have been to 5 Super Bowls, winning 3 of them. Let’s take a closer look at the history of the Oakland Raiders. Al Davis has owned the Raiders since 1972. Originally founded in Oakland, the team played there until Davis moved them to Los Angeles in 1982. Later, the team moved back to Oakland in 1995 and remains there to this day. The football team has had the colors of silver and black since Davis was general manager of the team in 1963. He used these colors originally because all TV’s were available in black and white only and these colors showed up better than others. John Madden became the head coach of the Raiders in 1969. He later guided the team to its first ever Super Bowl win in 1976. Madden stayed on as coach of the football team until 1979 when he left the team and the league, to go into TV broadcasting. In 1982, Davis moved the team to Los Angeles, due in part to the refusal of the city of Oakland to remodel the football stadium. In their first year in Los Angeles, the team...

2011 College Basketball Predictions – Big 12 Football Predictions 2010...

2011 College Basketball Predictions Big 12 North Predictions 1. Nebraska Cornhuskers – Nebraska appears to be on its way back to national prominence after coming oh so close to upsetting Texas in last year’s Big 12 championship game. The Huskers are off to the Big Ten in 2011, but until then they will terrorize the Big 12 with their ferocious defense. 2011 College Basketball Predictions 2. Missouri Tigers – Mizzou expects to have an offense that will be able to challenge the highly touted Nebraska defense, but the Tigers must visit Lincoln this season, giving the Huskers the edge in the Big 12 North. 3. Kansas State Wildcats – Bill Snyder stepped right in preaching fundamentals, and it instantly made the Wildcats a Big 12 North contender. Kansas is solid enough defensively, and take good enough care of the football on offense, to be very competitive again in 2010. 4. Iowa State Cyclones – Paul Rhoads was just what the doctor ordered for the Iowa State football program, bringing in a passion and energy for the job that had been missing since the school parted ways with Dan McCarney. He was able to lead the Cyclones to a bowl win in year one, leaving fans very excited about the future of the program. 5. Kansas Jayhawks – It figures to be a tough season in Lawrence with playmakers Kerry Meier and Dezmon Briscoe and QB Todd Reesing no longer...

Golden Nugget College Football Lines – 2010 College Football Predictions...

Golden Nugget College Football Lines If last season’s Rose Bowl performance against Oregon is any sign of things to come, the Ohio State Buckeyes could be on their way to a sixth straight Big Ten title and maybe even a national championship. The Buckeyes bring back a lot of talent on both sides of the football, and they should benefit from a kind schedule. Ohio State gets all four of its non-conference games in the horseshoe, and, of those four, Miami appears to be the only challenge. Late in the season, either Penn State or Iowa could potentially trip up the Buckeyes, but they would still likely earn a share of the conference title with just one loss. Quarterback Terrelle Pryor is a gifted athlete at the quarterback position who appears ready to enter Heisman Trophy discussions. The Buckeyes also have NFL talent at every level of their defense with guys like Cameron Heyward and Ross Homan expected to take their games to another level. Golden Nugget College Football Lines Offense – The offense starts with Pryor, and it will succeed as long as it allows Pryor to make plays with his legs as well as his arm. Pryor led the Buckeyes in rushing with 779 yards in 2009, and he scored seven times on the ground in the process. I really like it when the Buckeyes roll him out, giving him the run pass-pass option. Add talented running...
