It’s time to start looking ahead at the National Football League. The first Sunday of the season is always the hardest, due to the unknown of all the teams. It should be a fun weekend of football. Let’s take a look at some of the Vegas odds for Week 1 of the NFL season:

While there are 13 games to be played on Sunday, do not forget about the first game of the season. This game features two talented teams. The Pittsburgh Pirates are at the New England Patriots. New England is without Tom Brady, while the Steelers will be without Le’Veon Bell. The Patriots are -3 over the Steelers. In the first wave of games on Sunday, the biggest rivalry game features two NFC North teams, as the Green Bay Packers go to the Chicago Bears. Green Bay comes into the game at -6.5 over the Bears. Out of the NFC West, the back to back NFC champion Seattle Seahawks will take their talents on the road and take on the St. Louis Rams. The Seahawks are -3.5 over the Rams. Other, non divisional games feature the Indianapolis Colts going on the road and taking on the Buffalo Bills. The Colts are -2 on the road in this one. The Miami Dolphins also start their season on the road. The Dolphins head to the nation’s capitol and take on the Washington Redskins. Miami is -3 for this game. Carolina and Jacksonville will take each other on in the opening weekend as well. The Jaguars will be improved, but still are home underdogs. The Carolina Panthers are -4 over the Jaguars.  Cleveland and the New York Jets will battle it out. The Jets will be looking for a quarterback as Geno Smith is out 6-8 weeks. The Jets are -3 over the Browns. Finally, the Houston Texans and Kansas City Chiefs project to be one of the tightest games. The Texans, despite losing Arian Foster for several weeks still are -1 over Kansas City.

We move to the afternoon wave of games. During this session of football, there are just five games to be played. The first involves the Detroit Lions at the San Diego Chargers. The Chargers come into the game at -2.5 over Detroit. The New Orleans Saints go to Arizona, and are a field goal underdog. The Denver Broncos start their season at home. They will host the Baltimore Ravens. Peyton Manning and the Broncos are -4.5 over the Ravens. Oakland stays at home and host Cincinnati. The Raiders, despite being at home are a 3.5 point underdog. The final game during the afternoon session features the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Tennessee Titans. The Buccaneers, despite winning just 2 games a season ago are a field goal favorite over the Titans.

In the Sunday Night Football game, and two Monday Night Football games, the New York Giants play at the Dallas Cowboys. Then Monday, the Philadelphia Eagles are at the Atlanta Falcons and the Minnesota Vikings play at the San Francisco 49ers. The Cowboys, who many are projecting to win the NFC this season are -6 over the Giants. The Falcons are +1 at home against Philadelphia, with a total of a week 1 high of 53. Finally, in the last game of Week 1, the San Francisco 49ers and Minnesota Vikings are listed at pick’em.

st-andrews-2015As expected, the 21-year-old Texan, Jordan Speith (Odds: 6 to 1), is listed as the current favorite to win the 2015 Open Championship.   Jordan continues his quest for the holy grail of legendary golf: The true Grand Slam.  Speith was offered to the public at approximately 12 to 1 for the 2015 masters & 8 to 1 for the U.S. Open.  Turns out, these were tremendous values.  At most books his odds for the British jumped after Rory McIlroy’s withdraw due to an ruptured left ankle.  You can still get Jordan currently at 6 to 1 at 5 Dimes Sportsbook.  

Free British Open Picks (Sleeper & Value Plays)
Jimmy Walker: (85 to 1 at Five Dimes)
Rickie Fowler (30 to 1 at JustBet Sportsbook)
Sergio Garcia (36 to 1 at  Five Dimes)
Graham DeLaet (385 to 1 at Five Dimes)
J.B. Holmes (95 to 1 at Five Dimes)

Other notables and their odds for the 2015 British Open include:

  • Bubba Watson (36 to 1) – Bubba didn’t fair so well in the U.S. Open, but it appeared Chambers Bay wasn’t best suited for his game, as next week he went on to win the Travelers Championship at TPC River Highlands.
  • J.B. Holmes (95 – 1) – We love J.B. this weekend and see 80 to 1 as a bargain.  He’s now ranked 13th in the world.  He now has 5 Top Ten finishes along with a win (at the Shell Houston Open) and two 2nd place finishes in his 24 events played.  The fact that he has played in almost every tournament this year (and made the cut in almost all of them) tells us something.  It shows that this big smasher of the golf ball is in great shape and ready for the trip across the pond.  If J.B. is going to win a major, this is the year he is going to do it.  95 to 1 is a super bargain with Holmes.
  • Rickie Fowler (25 to 1) – Nobody is more due to win a major than Rickie in our opinion.  He quietly finished second in 3 of 4 majors last year including a 2nd place finish at the British.  We like him to have a strong showing at St. Andrews.
  • Tiger Woods (30 to 1) – This is obviously a sell at 30 to 1 (at least it should be obvious).  He has not been able to put together a very strong weekend yet this year.  If you’re a Tiger fan, 30 to 1 odds may be temping, but you’d be betting with your heart instead of your brain.
  • Phil Mickelson (38 to 1) – It seems everyone is a Phil fan and every tournament is always more exciting when the big lefty is in the hunt.  However, believe it or not, Phil hasn’t won a tournament since 2013.  If you are looking for value, it’s probably best to pass on Phil Mickelson unless you can get more than 50 to 1 odds.

In what many call the most exciting two minutes in sports, the annual running of the Kentucky Derby will take place this upcoming Saturday, May 2nd.  The race will be shown live the famous Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky on NBC at 6pm (EST). Below you will find some of our 2015 Kentucky Derby picks with a breakdown of the odds & race entries.  The general general predictions from famous horse racing experts and handicappers are listed below. 

The overwhelming favorite for the 2015 Kentucky Derby is American Pharoah.  Listed at 3.5 to 1 odds (at 5Dimes Sportsbook), Pharoah is ridden by famous jockey, Victor Espinoza, who also jockeyed last year’s winner of California Chrome.  Many of of the famous experts, including Jill Byrne & Ed DeRosa, have predicted Pharoah will cross the finish first.  The duo of trainer Bob Baffert and jockey Victor Espinoza is the most highlighted team of them all and why American Pharoah is the favorite.   We at Bankroll Sports truly don’t think you will find any value betting the popular pick in Pharoah.  He is likely to go off at very poor odds due to him being the popular expert pick and the fact that Espinoza will be on him and there are too many strong horses in the field. Pharoah will also have to work from way out outside as he got a bad draw with the 18th post position.

A very popular pick from racing cappers & a true thoroughbred that want to avoid overlooking, is undefeated Dortmund (2015 Kentucky Derby Odds: 3 to 1 at 5Dimes Racebook).  Dortmund will be coming out of the number 8 post and is trained by the popular Bob Baffert, who is also training the popular favorite, American Pharoah.  To fill out an MVP team, Dortmund’s saddle will be controlled by Martin Garcia.  

As we said, there are some other impressive horses in the field, and not all the experts are backing American Pharoah.  While not exactly contrarian picks, other experts, like Daily Facing Form’s David Grening, is keen on the other Bob Baffert trained horse. The handicappers at Bankroll Sports also like Grening’s pick of Carpe Diem who’s morning line is at 8 to 1 odds to win the 2015 Kentucky Derby (odds from 5Dimes Sportsbook).  Carpe Diem will be ridden by soon-to-be-retired and legendary jockey, John Velazquez.  Velazquez will look to add to his impressive resume including a 2011 derby win (on the back of Animal Kingdom).  Velazquez hopes to go out out on top by winning the grand daddy of them all one more time.  Our handicappers (as well as many) love trainer Todd Pletcher and expect him to have Carpe Diem ready for the longer track at Churchill Downs.  We also like that Carpe Diem has the inside number 2 post position, giving him the chance to get out in front and ride the rail.  Throw in that he’s not one of the Baffert trained horses, you are likely to end up with a decent price at post time.

Todd Pletcher (Carpe Diam’s trainer) will be training several horses in this year’s Kentucky Derby.  Aside from Carpe Diem, the most well-known of them (from many horse racing aficionados) would be Materiality (2015 Kentucky Derby Odds: 21 to 1).  Materiality is from the stud of the briefly-famous Afleet Alex.  This is a nice bloodline as Afleet Alex won the Preakness Stakes & Belmont Stakes in 2005 (as well as three other majors). Materiality is being ridden by a red-hot rider in jockey Javier Castellano. The experienced Castellano finished number one overall in jockey earnings the past two years (2014 & 2015) and did so on the backs of some significant horses.  If you are looking for a sleeper, Materiality’s morning line of 21 to 1 offers tremendous value.

Complete List of The Updated 2015 Masters Odds Can Be Found Below

Masters Odds To Win

Q: When is the 2015 Masters?
A: Thursday, 4/9 to 4/12/2015

Q: Which TV network can I watch the event & what time will the 2015 Masters TV Coverage Air?
A: As usual, you can watch the masters on ESPN on Thursday and Friday.  Then, the coverage will switch to CBS on Saturday & Sunday.  DirectTV also has special dedicated channels (also available in a 4-screen split) for the Masters. This includes; Featured Group, Amen Corner, Network Coverage, and more.

Q: Who Was Last Year’s Masters Champion and What is his Current Odds?
Q: Who was Last Year’s Masters Runner Up
A: Bubba Watson (2015 Masters odds: 12-1) won the Masters in 2015 as one of the favorites.  Jordan Speith (2015 Masters Odds: 10-1) went into Sunday with the lead and was outplayed by Watson.   

Q: Where will the 2015 Masters be held?
A: The Masters is always (every year) at Augusta National in Augusta, Georgia

Q: Who is Biggest Odds on Favorite to Win the 2014 Masters?
A. Most books have either the following three at the top and have this order (as of 4/1):

  1. Rory McIlroy (6 to 1 at JustBet)
  2. Joran Speith (10 to 1 at JustBet)
  3. Bubba Watson (11 to 1 at 5 Dimes)

Q: Where can I see the rest of the 2015 Masters odds and lists of odds from reliable sportsbooks?
A: Full list of odds for the 2014 Masters can be found at the bottom of this post, courtesy of JustBet; also find odds from 5 Dimes below. We’ll also update the lists below with the latest prices as often as possible. We’ll also try to add individual 2014 Masters Prop Bets as well as heads-up lines.

Q: What are some exciting storylines to watch in this year’s Masters?
A: The biggest story is of course, the return of the great Tiger Woods.  After taking some time off, Woods will return to golf and test his game in the biggest tournament of them all.  Tiger Woods’ current odds to win the 2015 Masters is 38 to 1 (at 5 Dimes).  This seems to be on the high end (better payout than other books).  Most books will offer him at around 25 to 1.

Another great story is Jordan Speith.  He has been red hot and everyone is waiting for the young tour star to win his first major. He was in contention last week and lost in a playoff to J.B. Holmes. Speith also won the Velspar Championship just two weeks ago. You can get Jordan Speith at around 10 to 1 (at JustBet). You’ll find a nice payout for J.B. Holmes as 5 Dimes is offering 50 to 1 odds for last week’s Houston Open Winner.

All the stories of the day will take the early spotlight off the world’s number one player, Rory McIlroy. The current odds to win the Masters for Rory McIlroy is roughly 5 to 1 at most books.

Full List of Odds To Win The MVP For Superbowl 49 Can Be Found Below

Betting on the Superbowl MVP is one of the most enjoyable betting propositions for the big game.  It’s one of those rare types of future wagers where you are almost betting on the Superbowl and playing fantasy football at the same time.  However, betting the Superbowl MVP odds can be one of those very tricky type of proposition / future wagers.  Why?  We’ll because it’s one of those hard to predict wagers where you need to find some balance as you look for value.  It’s also one of those types of wagers where the average public bettor often gets suckered into getting a very low value bet (on either a ridiculous Superbowl MVP longshot or a favorite that pays less than it should…..

When Looking at Superbowl MVP Longshots:
There are often many huge long shots that look tempting due to their large payout and the player’s notoriety, but at the same time, the player might never even touch the football during, even a regular season game….much less, the Super Bowl.  If betting a player down the list, make sure to factor in the player’s health, the likelihood that he will see the end zone, and/or make multiple game changing plays.  Make sure to factor the competition and how the player has performed in big playoff games in the past.  Also, if the player is in a non-skill position it’s likely that he will not have any chance to actually win the Superbowl MVP (regardless of how many great plays he makes to help his team).  FFor the most, part, anyone below 150 to 1 on the list of Super Bowl MVP odds to win the Su

An example of a zero value long shot would be a full back (who is very popular) having a very sizable payout, and being very low on the MVP odds list, despite the fact that he scores very little and rarely gets the football.  Another example of a zero value long shot would be a popular Offensive Tackle being on the list.

Longshot Picks From the MVP Odds
Doug Baldwin (Seattle):
Superbowl MVP Odds: 50 to 1 Diamond Sportsbook
Jonas Grey (Patriots):
Odds To Win the Superbowl MVP: 200 to 1 Diamond Sportsbook

Who usually get’s the MVP? Yes, the quarterback, the running back, a wide receiver. Well if you remember last in last year’s Super Bowl, linebacker Malcolm Smith won the award in Seattle’s dominating win over Denver. In this interesting matchup on Sunday, both teams have outstanding defensive unit’s and either of these two players are more than capable of making a game changing play. Wagner, the heart of Seattle’s ferocious front 7, and Jamie Collins, the versatile linebacker who has really come into his own this season. Yes, this is a crapshoot, but here you find two outstanding players presenting tremendous value.

When Looking at Superbowl MVP Favorites:
The top of the Superbowl MVP odds are usually the quarterbacks, the running backs, and the top pass catcher on each team.  The quarterback is the showcase position.  The quarterback gets the spotlight and is usually the most talked about player on the field.  This applies even on teams where the quarterback isn’t the most skilled player, or where the quarterback is less responsible for the team even getting to the super bowl.  However, there are times where a quarterback’s over-hype and popularity overshadows another offensive player that is; (a) more likely to make the difference between winning and losing, and is also more likely to reach the end zone on multiple occasions in the Superbowl.  Sometimes popularity, likeability, and overwhelming hype provides good value in another player’s odds to win the Superbowl MVP award.

An example of this would be Rusell Wilson of the Seattle Seahawks offering a smaller payout than Marshawn Lynch, while Lynch’s success on the field usually determines weather Seattle wins or loses.

Favorites (To Win The MVP) Offering Value
LeGarrette Blunt (Patriots):
Odds To Win The MVP: 20 to 1 (5Dimes)
Marshawn Lynch (Seahawks):
Odds To Win The MVP: 6 to 1 (5Dimes)
Consider the Superbowl MVP Judges:
One of the biggest things to remember before you decide to make a Superbowl MVP future bet, is that this is not an award that is given-to by, or voted-on-by the other players on the field.  That’s right….the other players (on the winning and/or losing team) don’t get any say who they think should get the Superbowl’s Most Valuable Player award after the game.  Furthermore, when looking at the odds to win the MVP list, you also have to consider that this isn’t an award that fans decide on.  Nope….the NFL’s paying customers have more say in who wins American Idol than they do when it comes to which player gets the Super Bowl MVP.  So, who decides who wins the Superbowl’s Most Valuable player award….?

You guessed it.  It’s those pompous and arrogant blowhards in the sports media (who are so smart, that they’re getting washed out by bloggers on the web).  Sports writers from the major newspapers and sports networks across the United States decide who was the most valuable player to his team on the field that night.  Even if a writer never played a sport in his life, spent the entire game watching the gametracker, and/or didn’t watch a single play from the game…..that writer’s vote counts the same as the next.

Why is this important?  Well, human beings have emotions, and it effect their judgement (especially the annoying sports writers that make up the AP).  Therefore, if the media likes the player, he’s more likely to win a toss-up between two guys.  If you are down to two players, and both have similar odds to win the Superbowl MVP award. it may be useful do a Google News search for the names of players on both teams and see how many positive and negative headlines (from the major publications only) are on that player.  This will give you an idea of whether the media likes this player or not.  Often players who ignore the media, have proven them wrong, or don’t offer substantial interview sessions get some unfavorable spin from the mainstream sports media.

Look For Balance When Betting This Future:
As with most future bets, betting on the odds to win the Superbowl MVP is no different.  Don’t take the favorite for a lot less of a payout than you should be getting for that player.  But, at the same time, don’t waste you money on a 150-1 longshot that won’t even touch the ball.  Look for one or two value bets that are listed in the top 15, but also outside the top 5 on the list of Super Bowl MVP odds at your sportsbook.
Superbowl 49 MVP Value Plays:
Edelman is definitely a wildcard in this game, his toughness and his ability to get open on short routes is excellent. Not only that, chances are he will be matched up with Richard Sherman. Sherman is injured, and he will not be 100% in the game. Also, you have to take a look at Edelman in the passing game, yes, the passing game. Don’t be surprised if you see Edelman wing a touchdown pass in the game, as the Patriots will pull out all the stops. Edelman is also a factor in the return game, as he is extremely quick and is more than capable of taking it to the house. at 28 to 1, Edelman is showing some solid value.  Below Are Some Overall value plays that I see (excluding both team’s quarterback);
Superbowl MVP Overall Value Plays
Julian Edelman (Patriots)
Superbowl MVP Odds: 28 to 1 5Dimes
Rob Gronkowski (Patriots)

Super Bowl XLIX, Sunday, February 1, 2015
University of Phoenix Stadium, Glendale, AZ
New England Patriots vs Seattle Seahawks
Current line: New England -2 Total: 47.5

Tom Brady Total TD passes: Over 2.5 (+160)
Great value here. What have you have heard all through the media since the AFC Championship? DeflateGate. The Patriots are cheaters, Tom Brady is a cheater. Let’s rewind back to 2007, when the whole spygate thing cam out after their week 1 win against the Jets. After all the hoopla and criticism that week, the Patriots came out and destroyed San Diego. I expect Tom Brady to be more than motivated to put on a spectacular performance. There’s another guy that could help him out and tell him the weaknesses of Seattle’s secondary, and that would be Patriot cornerback Brandon Browner, a former Seahawk. Let’s not forget that Tom Brady goes against Darrelle Revis in practice every week. Tom Brady will definitely bring his ‘A’ game.

Will LeGarrette Blount (NE) score a TD in the first half? Yes (+180)
The Patriots will without a doubt want to establish a solid run game, and they can do it against a Seattle front 7 that has shown they can be run on. Blount is the go-to guy for the Patriots, and at this price, it presents a lot of value.

Will Rob Gronkowski (NE) score a TD in the game? No (+145)
Will Gronk make a difference in the game? Absolutely, he will have the total attention of the Seahawks secondary. Seattle has an excellent red zone defense, and they have a safety in Kam Chancellor, who will match up extremely well with him. Gronk will make a difference, but I’m not so sure how effective he’ll be in the red zone.

Total Interceptions – Russell Wilson (SEA) Over ½ (-110) 2 (+500)
Yes, the over ½ is not a positive EV wager, but this will without a doubt be the best secondary and possibly the best defense Wilson has faced. This is a guy that threw four interceptions in the NFC championship, and his confidence level can’t be all that hi. I think this is a solid wager, considering the circumstances. Getting +500 for Wilson to throw 2 interceptions is great value.

Total Rushing Yards – Marshawn Lynch (SEA) Under 89.5 (-105)
You have to look at it this way, with 2 weeks to prepare, what will Bill Belichick’s defensive game plan be? Well, looking at history, they will look to take away what Seattle does best. Lynch is by far the most important part of their offense, and I think the Patriots will look to limit Lynch and put the game in Russell Wilson’s hands.

Will there be a defensive or special teams TD in the game? Yes +155
Both defenses are capable of scoring in this game, and in my opinion, and among many of the so-called ‘experts’ these are two of the most complete defensive units in the league with outstanding secondaries. I think we’ll see a defensive touchdown in this game, and I think there is some solid value here and I’m honestly surprised to see this kind of price here.
