  • College Football Betting: Heisman Trophy Race Preview:

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 8/30/2014 12:16:10 PM
    The first and most obvious thing to note about this year’s Heisman race is that Jameis Winston, the 2013 Heisman winner and the quarterback of the defending national champion Florida State Seminoles, could win the award and become only the second man in history to take the trophy in consecutive seasons, joining Archie Griffin of Ohio State in 1974 and 1975. +…

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 8/29/2014 9:48:17 AM

  • MLB Betting: Yankees vs. Blue Jays Series Preview:

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 8/29/2014 9:44:47 AM

  • MLB Betting: Nationals vs. Mariners Series Preview:

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 8/29/2014 9:40:04 AM
    These teams are both loaded with high-quality pitching. Seattle’s staff ERA, the bullpen and the starting rotation, is under three runs. That’s the lowest staff ERA for any American League team in a full season since the beginning of the designated hitter rule in 1973. +…
  • NFL Football Betting: AFC East Preview:

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 8/28/2014 9:44:58 AM
    The New England Patriots are still coached by Bill Belichick. They still have Tom Brady at quarterback. They still have a roster filled with players that can be plugged into many positions and can be asked to perform when other players are injured and the nature of the depth chart shifts. +…
  • NFL Football Betting: AFC West Preview:

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 8/18/2014 1:03:31 PM
    The AFC West is tough enough as it is. Three teams from the division made the playoffs last season. Two of them won at least one playoff game, and the team that didn’t win a playoff game led, 38-10, in the wild card round against the Indianapolis Colts in Indianapolis, only to suffer a bunch of injuries and lose bodies before the end of the game. +…
  • College Football Betting: Atlantic Coast Conference Preview:

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 8/18/2014 12:57:42 PM
    The Atlantic Coast Conference will be highly intriguing in the big, broad middle of the league, but at the top, it’s supposed to be Florida State’s world once again. +…
  • College Football Betting: Pac-12 Conference Preview:

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 8/14/2014 9:40:07 AM
    The Oregon Ducks might not be the future of the Pac-12, but they are the present in the conference. Stanford is coming off back-to-back Rose Bowl appearances, so the Cardinal are going to have something to say about how far the Ducks fly in the 2014 season. +…
  • College Football Betting: Southeastern Conference Preview:

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 8/14/2014 9:37:36 AM
    If the Southeastern Conference is going to win another national championship after losing hold of its national title streak this past season, it’s probable that the Alabama Crimson Tide are going to have to be the team to do the work for the SEC. +…
  • College Football Betting: Big Ten Conference Preview:

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 8/7/2014 12:01:50 PM
    >The Big Ten Conference will be contested by many of the usual suspects this season, but the team that has been a giant in the Big Ten for so much of its history is a team that doesn’t really know what to expect. +…
  • College Football Betting: Big 12 Conference Preview:

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 8/4/2014 12:21:36 PM
    The Big 12 Conference has one of its signature programs back at the top, expecting to compete for a conference title and maybe enter the national championship race as well. Oklahoma is getting all the preseason publicity and is being seen as a serious contender. +…
  • College Football Betting: Mountain West Conference Preview:

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 8/4/2014 11:48:13 AM
    The Mountain West’s two-division format led to the installation of a conference championship game for the first time last season. Fresno State, the champion of the West Division, defeated Mountain Division champion Utah State at home to usher in a new era in this part of the country. +…
  • College Football Betting: Mid-American Conference Preview:

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 8/4/2014 11:45:34 AM
    The Mid-American Conference figures to have some changes and some elements of stasis this season. On one hand, defending champion Bowling Green brings back a number of its skill-position players and will therefore have a great chance of defending its East Division crown, enabling the Falcons to get back to the MAC Championship Game in Detroit. +…
  • College Football Betting: Conference USA Preview:

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 7/27/2014 4:05:45 PM
    If you thought the Sun Belt Conference and the Big Ten Conference (with Maryland and Rutgers joining) were marked by change, and if you thought the Atlantic Coast Conference looked very new due to the departure of Maryland and the addition of Louisville, you haven’t seen anything yet. +…
  • College Football Betting: American Athletic Conference Preview:

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 7/27/2014 4:03:08 PM
    The American Athletic Conference is missing one of the teams that made it a respected and viable league over the past few years. How does the AAC follow up a very competitive and solid 2013 season in 2014? +…

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 7/27/2014 4:00:30 PM

  • MLB Betting: Reds vs. Yankees Series Preview:

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 7/17/2014 11:48:03 AM
    >The rematch of the 1976 World Series, won by the Reds in a four-game sweep, comes to the new version of Yankee Stadium this weekend. These teams are not what they once were, but they’re still very much in the playoff hunt, mostly because there are no great teams in their respective divisions. +…
  • MLB Betting: Dodgers vs. Cardinals Series Preview:

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 7/17/2014 11:32:20 AM
    This is the game that could become very hard to pick. Let’s say, as a hypothetical, that Adam Wainwright pitches in this game for the Cardinals. You would then want to take him and his under-two ERA against the pitcher the Dodgers have selected for this game. +…
  • MLB Betting: Brewers vs. Nationals Series Preview:

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 7/17/2014 11:27:29 AM

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 7/10/2014 1:02:49 PM
    These teams know that they’re going to continue to jockey with each other for positioning in the American League Central. It’s quite possible that the Cleveland Indians, after taking two of three games from the Royals this past weekend, could still make a move. +…
  • MLB Betting: Angels vs. Rangers Series Preview:

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 7/10/2014 1:02:30 PM
    These teams have flip-flopped in the standings compared to last season. In 2013, Texas was good enough to make a one-game playoff, basically a Game 163, before the one-game wild card playoff in the American League’s postseason. +…
  • Brazil hasn’t budged from the top of the list as the favorite to win the 2014 FIFA World Cup on home soil. That doesn’t mean they don’t have a level of concern heading in to a tough final eight match up. +…

    These teams are in search of a spark, and in game one of this series on the Fourth of July, they might need offensive fireworks to win. +…
  • MLB Betting: Rays vs. Tigers Series Preview:

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 7/3/2014 1:50:03 PM
    These teams have undergone different kinds of experiences this season. Tampa Bay has steadily played poorly. The Rays really haven’t had any light or any reason to be optimistic. +…
  • MLB Betting: Yankees vs. Twins Series Preview:

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 7/3/2014 1:41:34 PM
    These teams are part of a vast and mediocre American League in which few teams are breaking from the pack. The Oakland Athletics have been the one really good team in the American League this season. +…
  • In order for the underdog teams from Costa Rica, Chile, and the United States to make it through to the Round of 16, at least one of the favorites from their group had to fall. +…
  • MLB Betting: Mariners vs. Royals Series Preview:

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 6/19/2014 3:26:19 PM
    These teams are nothing if not up-and-down. The Mariners began the season 7-15 but then won 27 of their next 41 games. However, Seattle then dropped five of six games on its most recent homestand to lose the momentum it had begun to build. +…
  • MLB Betting: Orioles vs. Yankees Series Preview:

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 6/19/2014 3:14:40 PM
    These teams are trying to sort out their issues and reach the point where they can be grooved in at the plate and on the mound. The Orioles and Yankees, like every American League East team other than Toronto, have failed to hit their stride this season. +…
  • MLB Betting: Red Sox vs. Athletics Series Preview:

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 6/19/2014 2:59:32 PM

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 5/13/2014 12:03:48 PM
    >The Cleveland Indians and Toronto Blue Jays both enter play on Monday with identical 18-20 records. This is not a surprise in Toronto’s case, but it’s a bit worrisome for the Tribe, who won over 90 games last season and have to get on a roll in order to match last year’s pace +…
  • MLB Weekend Betting: Angels vs. Phillies Series Preview:

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 5/13/2014 11:58:36 AM
    The Los Angeles Angels have to be quietly encouraged by what they’ve done in the first month and a half of the season, while the Philadelphia Phillies have to be concerned yet also hopeful they can turn things around. An interesting two-game series is on tap in Pennsylvania +…
  • MLB Betting: Padres vs. Reds Series Preview:

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 5/13/2014 11:48:15 AM

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 5/6/2014 1:42:36 PM
    The Baltimore Orioles and Tampa Bay Rays are just two of the five teams in the American League East that are trying to gain separation from the pack at the top, instead of sinking to the bottom of the division. +…
  • MLB Betting: Reds vs. Red Sox Series Preview:

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 5/6/2014 10:18:59 AM
    The Reds will put Homer Bailey on the mound, while the Red Sox will go with Felix Doubront. Bailey is an erratic pitcher who can be great on some days and nearly unhittable, but on other days he’s noticeably ordinary. +…

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 5/2/2014 11:10:39 AM
    The San Francisco Giants are 15-10. The Atlanta Braves are 17-7. There’s no bigger or more attractive series in the National League this weekend than this one +…

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 5/2/2014 10:34:39 AM
    The season is still fairly young, only four weeks old, but it’s still necessary to point out that the New York Mets and Colorado Rockies have exceeded expectations so far. +…

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 5/2/2014 10:32:16 AM
    The Reds are seven games behind the Brewers in the N.L. Central standings, so it’s certainly important for the Reds to at least split four games with the Brewers this weekend. +…

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 4/24/2014 11:30:48 AM
    The Padres will go with Eric Stults in this game, while the Nationals will counter with Jordan Zimmermann. The Padres’ pitching has been fairly respectable in the first few weeks of the season, so it’s not as though Stults is a tomato can waiting to get hammered. +…
  • MLB Weekend Betting: Orioles vs. Red Sox Series Preview:

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 4/18/2014 10:09:55 AM
    The first game of this series puts Baltimore starter Bud Norris against Boston’s John Lackey. Norris is a solid big-league pitcher, but Lackey did such a good job in the playoffs last October and has removed concerns about his viability and durability with the Red Sox. +…
  • MLB Weekend Betting: Yankees vs. Rays Series Preview:

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 4/16/2014 1:17:29 PM

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 2/28/2014 5:13:43 PM
    The Virginia Cavaliers have struggled to even make the NCAA tournament for most of the past several years. The school that flourished in the early 1980s, making the 1981 and 1984 Final Fours, really hasn’t been able to do very much of anything in the following 30 years, except for a 1995 run to the Elite Eight in which the Wahoos lost to Arkansas in the Midwest Regional Final. +…

    Something that’s been particularly unexpected in college basketball this season has been the rise to power of the Michigan Wolverines. That’s an odd phrase to use, given that Michigan made the national championship game last season and lost to Louisville in a thriller in Atlanta. +…

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 1/22/2014 1:28:38 PM
    The Houston Rockets have been solidly in playoff position in the Western Conference this season, but by the same token, they have not cracked the top four in the West and will have a tough time getting home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs. +…

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 1/22/2014 10:28:39 AM

  • NBA Weekend Betting: Preview:

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 1/13/2014 9:24:47 PM
    There won’t be another weekend game anywhere close to the Saturday matchup between the Clippers and Pacers. The two teams played a spirited game in Los Angeles earlier this season, with the Pacers winning. Each team views itself as a team that should compete for the NBA title in the spring, but right now, only the Pacers seem worthy of that distinction. Yet, if the Clippers can pull off the upset on the road in Indianapolis, they would certainly take a very big step toward gaining added respect in the Association. +…

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 1/13/2014 9:21:59 PM
    The big game in college basketball this Saturday is the one between the Oklahoma State Cowboys and the Kansas Jayhawks. These are the two main contenders for the Big 12 Conference championship in college basketball, and since Kansas has won the Big 12 every year since 2005, there’s an added weight to this contest. +…

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 12/22/2013 11:46:46 AM
    The Atlanta Falcons and San Francisco 49ers met in the NFC Championship Game last season, and their meeting in week 16 was supposed to be one of the highlights of this NFL season. However, the fall of the Falcons and the decline of the 49ers’ offense have created a game that won’t generate much of any publicity or intrigue in the final days before Christmas +…

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 12/22/2013 11:42:24 AM

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 12/21/2013 12:08:01 PM

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 12/15/2013 11:35:53 AM

  • NFL Betting: Panthers vs. Saints Preview:

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 12/8/2013 10:54:47 AM
    The Carolina Panthers started the NFL season 1-3, and they haven’t looked back ever since. A confident, tough team with inspired leadership and a ruthlessly physical defense should be able to play the New Orleans Saints on level terms for 60 minutes. +…
  • College Football Betting: Oklahoma vs. Oklahoma State Preview:

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 12/8/2013 10:54:11 AM
    The Oklahoma Sooners appeared to be headed to an 8-4 season, far below the program’s standards under current head coach and future College Football Hall of Fame member Bob Stoops. The Sooners were destroyed in early November by the Baylor Bears, and they didn’t look very good the following week in a sleepy win over Iowa State. +…

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 11/30/2013 11:18:59 AM
    The game of the week in college football is also the game of the year in the SEC. At the beginning of the season, it was felt that the Alabama-Texas A&M matchup was going to define the SEC season and the college football season as a whole, but that reality has been changed by the Auburn Tigers. +…
  • Monday Night Football :

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 11/23/2013 1:13:21 PM
    The latest edition of Monday Night Football could potentially become complicated for the defending NFC champion San Francisco 49ers. Coach Jim Harbaugh has seen his offense stagnate on multiple occasions this season, partly due to injuries but also to the limits of read option-based packages. +…

  • College Football Betting: Baylor vs. Oklahoma State Preview:

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 11/23/2013 10:51:11 AM
    One should be cautious when evaluating Baylor, but in the same breath, one should also accord this team a high level of respect for its accomplishments. The Bears’ offense plays particularly well at home, but one should not be led to think that this team can’t post really large numbers on the road, either. +…
  • NFL Betting: Patriots vs Panthers Preview:

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 11/16/2013 11:56:06 AM
    The Carolina Panthers certainly seemed to be headed nowhere in the 2013 NFL season. At 1-3, head coach Ron Rivera was on the verge of being fired. He was failing to get the most out of his talent, especially franchise quarterback Cam Newton. +…
  • NFL Betting: Browns vs. Bengals Preview:

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 11/16/2013 11:50:16 AM
    The Browns are not likely to make the playoffs, but they are still in contention and could make things really interesting in the AFC North if they can win this game. The Browns, with a win here, would sweep the season series with Cincinnati, meaning that if the two teams finished tied in the standings at the end of the season, the Browns would indeed win the North and host a playoff game. +…

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 11/8/2013 9:05:25 AM
    The Virginia Tech Hokies will need to win this game with their defense.

  • NFL Betting: Seahawks-Falcons Preview:

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 11/8/2013 9:04:55 AM
    The Seattle Seahawks continue to lead the NFC West, but they are also continuing to cause concerns among their coaching staff and their fan base, at least when they go on the road. The Seahawks’ offensive line has been ravaged by injuries this season, causing quarterback Russell Wilson to take a lot of hits. +…

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 10/30/2013 10:08:11 PM

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 10/30/2013 10:04:50 PM

    The UCLA Bruins head to Eugene, Ore., to take on the high-flying Ducks in yet another really big Pac-12 game. UCLA will either prove that it can play with the big boys on the West Coast, or it will be exposed by the most lethal offense in the Bruins’ conference. +…

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 9/27/2013 11:50:47 PM
    The Stanford Cardinal lost one Pac-12 Conference game last season, and it came at CenturyLink Field in Seattle. That game, of course, was against the Washington Huskies, but the larger point holds true: Playing in a place where you didn’t perform well in the past can certainly create a lot of uncertainty and doubt for an athlete or a group of athletes. Stanford will find itself in an unusual situation, playing a conference road game in a non-campus stadium +…
