The Baltimore Ravens are the champions of the world, as they captured Super Bowl 47 by a 34-31 count over the San Francisco 49ers in New Orleans. Most are still recapping what happened in the 2012 season and celebrating or mourning over the Ravens' triumph, but here at Bankroll Sports, we've already got our watchful eye on next season's actions!
The 49ers have opened up as the co-favorites on the Super Bowl 48 odds at 7 to 1, and for good reason. QB Colin Kaepernick really came up big in the playoffs, and he is going to come into the 2013 season as one of the most exciting players to watch in the 2013 NFL season. Throw into the mix RB Frank Gore, a surging WR Michael Crabtree, a revived TE Vernon Davis, and a defense that really flexed its muscles for the mass majority of the season, and the makings are there for this to be another very special team (and likely favorite to win the Superbowl at the beginning of next year).
As for the Ravens? They're the 12 to 1 choice right now, and if they are going to win the Super Bowl next season for a second straight year, they're going to have to do so without the retired LB Ray Lewis. Lewis went out a winner though, and that's about all you can ask for if you're an NFL player.
These aren't nearly the only two teams that are in the thick of the fight to capture the Lombardi Trophy next year though, as all 32 teams have to feel that today is the day that their 2013 season starts. To see where your teams rank in the hierarchy of NFL clubs, don't miss our Team-By-Team Super Bowl Odds, which breaks down all of the best Super Bowl betting lines for every team in the league.
There's never an offseason for us here at Bankroll Sports, and we are going to be covering every single move that all 32 teams make between now and the kickoff of next season. Whether it be free agency, trades, or the NFL Draft, we'll be watching it all, as we will always be your one-stop shop for all things related to the NFL.
The 2013 college football season will be here before you know it! If you still want your fix of NCAA football, you've definitely come to the right place here at Bankroll Sports! Our writers and expert handicappers are always paying attention to what's going on with the boys on the gridiron, and we already have some of our early college football predictions for the 2013 season posted in our Sports Handicapping Blog.
Is there really any team in the nation that is worth backing on the 2013-14 BCS National Championship Odds than the Alabama Crimson Tide? The Tide are the 5 to 1 early favorites to win it all this coming season. The team already has back to back titles and three National Championships in four years, and it is always hungry for more. Head Coach Nick Saban just keeps reloading year after year, and men like RB TJ Yeldon, RB Eddie Lacy, and QB AJ McCarron are all coming back for another run at glory, this time at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena. However, that doesn't mean that the Tide are going to be able to run through the entire nation once again. Teams like the Oregon Ducks, who fell just one game shy of playing for all of the marbles in 2012, or the Georgia Bulldogs, who were just a few yards away from winning the SEC Championship Game against the aforementioned Tide, are all considered contenders this year, and there could be some dark horses that come out of nowhere as well. Check it all out with our writers here at Bankroll Sports!
And of course, if we're talking about National Championship odds, we have to be talking about the Odds to Win the Heisman Trophy as well. Just as it seems like a slam dunk to think that Alabama is going to play for all of the marbles in 2013, it's easy to think that QB Johnny Manziel is going to end up winning back to back Heisman Trophies for the second time in the history of the award. There has only been one man, RB Archie Griffin, who has won the Heisman twice, but Manziel seems to know no bounds. He is the first freshman to ever win the honor, and he is going to be the only one of the three finalists from a year ago coming back to play college ball again this year. There are others that are going to be gunning to take the honor away from him in 2013 like QB Aaron Murray, RB De'Anthony Thomas, QB Braxton Miller, and maybe even some surprise contenders like DE Jadeveon Clowney as well. We've got it all covered at Bankroll Sports!

It's playoff time, and there are only eight teams that are left standing in the chase for the Larry O'Brien Trophy. There were most certainly some upsets in the second season, especially in the Western Conference, where both the No. 5 Memphis Grizzlies and the No. 6 Golden State Warriors were able to take down the so-called superior teams. Both the No. 1 Oklahoma City Thunder and the No. 2 New York Knicks took 3-0 series leads, only to ultimately need to struggle in six games with their respective foes in the playoffs as well. Yes, we have had a little bit of everything here in the NBA playoffs thus far, and you need to keep a close eye on our NBA Playoffs Schedule, where you can find all of the games on the NBA TV schedule.
The team that is still favored on the Odds To Win the NBA Finals is the Miami Heat. The Heat had no problems in their first series, sweeping away the Milwaukee Bucks, and they really didn't break a sweat in doing so. One would think that they would have to work a little bit harder against the Chicago Bulls, but after playing seven games, one of which went to three overtimes against the Brooklyn Nets, there is a real question as to what the Central Division runners up are bringing to the table. G Kirk Hinrich, F Luol Deng, and G Derrick Rose are all out of the fold. Do the Bulls stand a chance? Our Bulls vs. Heat Series Predictions and Updates will give you all of the answers.
Over in the other Eastern Conference series, the Indiana Pacers and the New York Knicks are doing battle. Our Pacers vs. Knicks Series Page is complete with all of the results and previews for what could be one of the best series in the entire NBA playoffs. F Carmelo Anthony is shooting right around 35 percent from the field for the postseason, and he has the most pressure on him to get through this series than any other star has on his shoulders. The Pacers though, are bringing a relentless defense into Madison Square Garden for what should be a remarkable two weeks of play between these two division champs.
The San Antonio Spurs had the easiest go of it in the first round of the playoffs, knocking off the Los Angeles Lakers in four games, each of which came by an average of 16.5 points per game. The Spurs took a full week off, but now, they have to contend with the upstarts of the postseason, the Golden State Warriors. Can G Stephen Curry pull off another miracle and unseat the Western Conference favorites? Our Warriors vs. Spurs Series Predictions will show you that without Curry, Golden State doesn't have a chance against the deepest team in the NBA.
Finally, the Oklahoma City Thunder are going to take on the Memphis Grizzlies in the postseason. Oklahoma City has to make it the rest of the way in the second season without G Russell Westbrook. F Kevin Durant can't do it all by himself over the course of these playoffs, but he is sure trying. The Memphis defense is going to be giving him fits for what could be a full seven games. If you want to see what's going on with this series over the course of the next two weeks, our Grizzlies vs. Thunder Series Page is the one that you want to keep an eye on.
Of course, if you want to beat the NBA betting lines with regularity here in the second season, you need to be paying attention to all of our Expert NBA Picks.
