Just two short weeks away from the 2016-17 NFL playoffs and the teams that remain in playoff contention are shrinking by the week.  With the Patriots (2 to 1 Odds @ JustBet) and the Cowboys (5 to 1 Odds @ 5 Dimes) riding so far atop the odds right now, there’s few little value to be gotten in the current NFC and AFC favorites.  Some books also have the Cowboys & Seahawks with the same odds.  But, even at 5 to 1, we don’t see a whole lot of value in Seattle without them having home field advantage.  We do think the current 2017 Superbowl Odds offer some value in the middle of the bunch right now.

In the NFC, the Atlanta Falcons are currently being offered at very substantial price of 18 to 1 (@ 5 Dimes).  This is a team that is currently hitting on all cylinders on offense and their young defense is really starting to swarm around the ball.  If they can somehow get that first round bye, you can expect that 18-1 number to drop to under 8 to 1.   Another impressive metric for the Falcons, is the 5-2 record on the road.  Even without the bye, we still see 18-1 as a fantastic value.

As for an AFC value pick, this one is a little more tricky as New England appears to be the dominating team.   That being said, we’ll look at the #2 team in the AFC right now in the Oakland Raiders who are currently being offered at 15 to 1 (@ JustBet).  There is still an outside chance the Raiders can get home filed advantage.  This may just be the year that the Oakland Raiders get revenge for the infamous tuck rule.

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);

Free NFL Team Prop Picks For Championship Weekend

Championship weekend is here and while many are looking to figure out the sides and total, some of the better value is in player props. We’ll take a look at some prop bets that could present some value.

Free NFC Championship Picks
Green Bay at Seattle @ 3:05 pm EST
Game Line: Seattle -7.5 (-105) Total: 47

Total TD Passes – Aaron Rodgers (Green Bay)
Free NFC Championship Pick: Over 2.5 (+140)
Call me crazy, but I like Green Bay’s chances on Sunday. The question you have to ask yourself, how hurt is Rodgers? Let’s just forget about the first game of the season, this is a different Green Bay team and their offensive line is playing at an extremely high level. I think there is some value here, and Rodgers throwing more than 3 touchdowns with all the weapons he has is not out of the question.

Will James Starks (Green Bay) score a TD in the game?
Free NFC Championship Pick: Yes +575
A lot of value here as you have a backup running back that shows up in big games. I do think Starks can be a factor, especially as I think Green Bay will limit Eddie Lacy in the first half to save him for the second half. Starks is also a great receiving back, and is pretty versatile. This is some great value here.

Will Eddie Lacy (Green Bay) record 150 or more rushing yards?
Free NFC Championship Pick: Yes +2000
A long shot yes, but you might think Eddie Lacy is a little banged up, but he didn’t take a lot of hit last weekend. Does Seattle have a great defense? Without a doubt…but if there’s any running back that can match the physicality of the Seahawks’ defense, it’s Lacy. Tremendous value!

Russell Wilson (Seattle) – Total TD Passes
0: +300, 1: +175, 2: +220
Ok, there’s a variety of picks here, all positive EV wagers. I do believe Russell Wilson will throw a touchdown pass; it’s just a matter of how many. But each wager is showing some value.

Will Russell Wilson (Seattle) score a rushing TD in the Game?
Free NFC Championship Prop Pick: Yes – +250
Again, another wager with a ton of value. Wilson has 6 rushing touchdowns this season, and there’s no question that he’ll be a threat to take one to the house on Sunday.


Free AFC Championship Prop Picks

Indianapolis at New England @ 6:40 pm EST
Game Line: New England -7 (-105) Total: 54

Andrew Luck (Indianapolis) – Total Rushing yards
Free AFC Championship Picks: Over 17.5 yards (-125)
Yeah there’s some juice here, but I like this play. Luck is very athletic, and can extend the play…New England has an outstanding secondary, and I think there will be more than a few times where Luck will get loose and run for some extra yards. I think this is a real solid wager.

Will Andrew Luck (Indianapolis) score a rushing touchdown in the game?
AFC Championship Prop Pick: Yes +300
Again, this goes back to my last prop, I think there’s some value here…and I think it’s worth a look as Luck can get to the end zone using his legs.

Will Reggie Wayne (Indianapolis) score a TD in the game?
AFC Championship Prop Pick: 
Yes +250
Is it me or does it seem that Reggie Wayne seem like the forgotten guy in Indianapolis? Wayne has a ton of big game experience, and with so much focus on T.Y. Hilton and newcomer Donte Moncrief, Wayne could definitely get open for a score here. Should Indy find themselves down early, I think the chances of Wayne finding the end zone are pretty good.

Will Brandon LaFell (New England) score a touchdown in the game?
AFC Championship Prop Pick: Yes +140
Well, seeing with what happened last weekend, Brandon LaFell certainly isn’t afraid to come up in big spots. LaFell caught the game winning touchdown, and has become one of Tom Brady’s favorite targets. Solid value here.

Total Tackles and assists Jamie Collins (New England)
AFC Championship Prop Pick: 
Over 8.5 -105
Collins is a force, and in last years playoff game against Indianapolis he was a factor. Collins has the speed and is great in coverage. I expect the young linebacker to be very active in Sunday’s game.

2014-15 NFL Divisional Round Playoff Odds and Line Breakdown

January 7th, 2015 by Chad A. Dawkins | Posted in NFL Football   Comments Off on 2014-15 NFL Divisional Round Playoff Odds and Line Breakdown

The 2014-2015 NFL Divisional round is upon us. There are eight teams left, and here’s a run down of the games for this weekend, odds courtesy of JustBet. All times Eastern.

Saturday, January 10th

Baltimore at New England (-7, 47.5) 4:35 PM NBC

The New England Patriots will host the Baltimore Ravens on Saturday evening from Gillette Stadium in Foxboro. This will be the fourth meeting between these two teams in the past six years. Baltimore has often been a thorn in the side of Patriot quarterback Tom Brady and head coach Bill Belichick, winning 2 out of the last 3 and all of those being in Foxboro. The Patriots earned the AFC number one seed with a 13–3 record. The Ravens defeated there AFC North rival Pittsburgh last weekend 30-17.

Carolina at Seattle (-10.5, 39.5) 8:15 PM FOX

The Carolina Panthers travel to the Pacific Northwest to take on the defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks. These two teams have met three times since 2012 with Seattle winning all three match ups by an average of 4.2 points per game. Seattle’s defense has definitely has definitely has definitely come on strong towards the end of the season. Carolina’s defense has also done the same, allowing less then 300 yards of total offense and only one of their previous six games. The Panthers advanced to Saturdays divisional playoff defeating Arizona 27–16.

Sunday, January 11th

Dallas at Green Bay (-6, 53) 1:00 PM FOX

The Dallas Cowboys take on the Green Bay Packers from Lambeau Field in Green Bay Wisconsin. Dallas definitely had their hands full last weekend coming back from a 14-0 deficit in the first quarter to defeat Detroit 24–20. The game definitely had its fair share of controversial calls, but Dallas’ performance in the second half can’t be ignored, as they outscored the Lions 17–3 in the second half. The cowboys will definitely need their top defensive performance of the season, as Green Bay lead the league in scoring the season, averaging 30.3 points per game. The Packers run defense will definitely be tested, facing what is arguably the leagues best offense of line and top running back DeMarco Murray.

Indianapolis at Denver (-7, 54) 4:15 PM CBS

The last game of the divisional round will feature Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos facing Manning’s former team, the Indianapolis Colts led by none other than Andrew Luck. These two teams met back in week one, with Denver winning 31–24. The Broncos held on for the win despite a late rally in the fourth quarter by the Colts. Indianapolis advanced two Sundays divisional round match up by defeating Cincinnati 26–10. Andrew Luck completed 31 of his 44 pass attempts for 376 yards and 1 touchdown in the victory.

 

2014 NFL Week 17 Odds – Week 17 Lines Breakdown

December 26th, 2014 by Chad A. Dawkins | Posted in General Handicapping, NFL Football   Comments Off on 2014 NFL Week 17 Odds – Week 17 Lines Breakdown

The final week of the 2014 NFL regular season is upon us. There is still some playoff positioning to take place, but here’s a run down of the games, odds courtesy of JustBet. All times Eastern.

Cleveland at Baltimore (NL) 1:00 PM CBS

The Cleveland Browns will take on the Baltimore Ravens in an AFC North Battle. The Ravens had a poor performance last weekend losing to Houston and will need a win and some help to get the final wildcard berth.

Dallas (-6, 49.5) at Washington 1:00 PM FOX

The Dallas Cowboys clinched the NFC East with a dominating 42-7 win over Indianapolis last weekend. They can still clinch a first round bye with some help, but will need a win first and foremost against a Washington team that spoiled Philadelphia’s playoff plans last week.

Indianapolis (-7, 46) at Tennessee 1:00 PM CBS

The Indianapolis Colts will look to end the regular season on a positive note after their 42-7 loss at Dallas. They are locked in with the #4 seed and can’t improve their playoff position.

Jacksonville at Houston (-9.5, 40) 1:00 PM FOX

Houston has an outside shot of getting into the playoffs but will need losses by Baltimore, San Diego, and Kansas City. However you can be certain Jacksonville will be looking to spoil their season.

San Diego at Kansas City (-3, 42) 1:00 PM CBS

The San Diego Chargers are in the playoffs with a win, but Kansas City can take that final playoff spot with a win and a Baltimore loss or tie.

NY Jets at Miami (-5.5., 41.5) 1:00 PM CBS

It might be Rex Ryan’s last game as HC of the NYJ, but we might get another stellar defensive effort from the Jets, who will take on AFC East Rival Miami from Sun Life Stadium.

Chicago at Minnesota (-6.5, 43.5) 1:00 PM FOX

Jay Cutler will get the start for the Bears due to Jimmy Claussen suffering a concussion. They’ll try to end the season on a positive note when they take on the Minnesota Vikings, who are still giving teams all they can handle.

Buffalo at New England (-4.5, 44) 1:00 PM CBS

The New England Patriots take on the Buffalo Bills in an AFC battle of no significance. The Patriots secured the #1 seed in the AFC beating the New York Jets last weekend, along with a Denver loss at Cincinnati.

Philadelphia at NY Giants (-3, 52) 1:00 PM FOX

Don’t look now, but the Giants have won 3 games in a row, they’ll look to make it 4 in a row when they host the Philadelphia Eagles, who were knocked out of the playoffs last weekend.

New Orleans (-4, 47) at Tampa Bay 1:00 PM FOX

The New Orleans Saints have to be one of the biggest disappointments this season; they’ll take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who with a loss will clinch the #1 pick.

Carolina at Atlanta (-4, 48) 4:25 PM CBS

The Carolina Panthers and Atlanta Falcons take the field in a game of great significance as the winner will get the #4 seed and win the NFC South crown.

Detroit at Green Bay (-7.5, 47.5) 4:25 PM FOX

Green Bay and Detroit lock horns with the winner grabbing the NFC South title. Green Bay can clinch the division and a first round bye with a win, a loss by Seattle would get them the #1 seed. Detroit can clinch a first round bye with a win or a tie with a Dallas loss, and a Seattle and Arizona loss. Clinching the #1 seed would need a win with a Seattle and Arizona loss or tie and a Dallas loss.

Oakland at Denver (-14, 48) 4:25 PM CBS

Denver can clinch the second seed with a win at home over Oakland or a Cincinnati loss. The Raiders are improving, and won again over Buffalo last Sunday.

Arizona at San Francisco (-6, 36.5) 4:25 PM FOX

The Arizona Cardinals can clinch the NFC West with a win or a tie along with a Seattle loss. They can also clinch home field throughout with a win and a Seattle and Green Bay loss. From what it looks like, this could be Jim Harbaugh’s last game as 49ers head coach.

St. Louis at Seattle (-12.5, 41) 4:25 PM FOX

Seattle can clinch the #1 seed in the NFC with a win. I’m sure they won’t need any more motivation, but St. Louis comes to town, a team that beat them back in week 7, 28-26.

Cincinnati at Pittsburgh (-3.5, 48) 8:30 PM NBC

How fitting is it to have what is possibly the most competitive division being decided in the last game of the regular season? The Pittsburgh Steelers will look to clinch the AFC North with a win over the Cincinnati Bengals. If the Bengals win, they will clinch the North, but can also clinch the #2 seed with a Denver loss. These two teams met back on December 7th, with the Steelers winning 42-21.

The Seattle Seahawks will look to take sole possession of 1st place in the NFC West when they travel to Arizona to take on the 11-3 Cardinals. Last weekend’s win over St. Louis was costly, as they lost QB Drew Stanton for at least a week with a knee injury.
