Jeff's 2014-15 Top 10 NFL Fantasy Football Sleepers
Jeff Hochman Jul 31, 2014  
A Fantasy "Sleeper" is defined as a player (in this case NFL) who you believe will have a "breakout" season, while not being ranked in the Top 10 at his position before the season started. Here is my list for the 2014-15 season.

Sean Higgs AFC East Preview
Sean Higgs Jul 27, 2014  
The calender is slowing inching towards August. That means the NFL is right around the corner. Time to start breaking down all divisions and each team. Let's get right to it.

AFC EAST

NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS - These guys have 11 straight 10+ win seasons. I tried betting against them last year winning this division and failed. You would think they would be as good are better with the add ...  read more

 
Sean Higgs AFC North Preview
Sean Higgs Jul 27, 2014  
Here we go with another AFC Preview and we head to the rugged AFC North.

AFC NORTH

CINCINNATI BENGALS - In my eyes, this is a make or break year for HC Marvin Lewis. The Red Rocket has taken this team to the playoffs the last few years. It is time for them to get over the 1st round hump and the pieces are in place. AJ Green is primed to really take his game to the next level. Marvi ...  read more

 
Sean Higgs AFC South Preview
Sean Higgs Jul 27, 2014  
We will be looking to the AFC South in today's preview.

AFC SOUTH

INDIANAPOLIS COLTS - I will be the first to say I thought these guys overachieved the last 2 seasons with Luck. But I was wrong. It isn't overachieving when you are talented. I think the defense gets by with a little smoke and mirrors, but the offense is legit. Luck is a great leader and the team follows him. Now, th ...  read more

 
Sean Higgs AFC West Preview
Sean Higgs Jul 27, 2014  
We will wind down our previews of the AFC today. Be sure to check all my AFC Division Previews.

DENVER BRONCOS - What is there to say about this team? Yes, they ran into a defensive buzz-saw in the Super Bowl. From their first snap, you knew it was going to be a long night. No surprise for us there as we were all over Seattle though. We know that barring injury, no team is stopping Manning ...  read more

 
Top 5 MLB Right-handed starters age 27 or younger
Jeff Hochman Jul 24, 2014  
Top 5 MLB Right-handed starters age 27 or younger


Starting pitchers are so fragile. Considering that 50% of all starting pitchers will go on the DL (disabled list) at some point in the season is scary. I choose age 27 or younger because that's the age window when starting pitchers are entering their prime and are less likely to suffer a major arm injury. With pitchers an injury ...  read more
 
Sean Higgs early NFL Total OVER/UNDER.
Sean Higgs Jun 25, 2014  
So it isn't even July yet, but that won't stop me from coming out with some NFL Regular Season Win Total prop bets.

I did a radio show about a month ago when the lines first started to creep out, and I waited a bit before posting on the website. Although it is really never to early to talk NFL, I just felt like the season never really ended with the late draft.

Dallas Cowboy Fans: A Glimmer of Hope

Dallas Cowboy Fans: A Glimmer of Hope


I texted a good friend and fellow Cowboys' fan that if Jerry Jones drafts Johnny Manziel it would be the last straw. It was the longest 10 minutes of my life. And than it was all over. They made the right move for once. If the Cowboys drafted Johnny Manziel it would have set back this franchise to new lows. No matter what some experts say, ...  read more
 
Top 5 MLB Left-Handed Starters age 27 or younger (2014 Season)
Jeff Hochman Mar 30, 2014  
The elite left-handed starters have a big advantage just for the simple fact that most players see a lot more right-handed pitching. Also, batting practice is mostly thrown by righties. Look for teams that have not faced a Quality left-handed starter for some time ( five games or more) and you will have a nice winning investment. Here are my Top 5 left-handed starting pitchers age 27 or younge ...  read more

What does Carmelo Anthony have to do to win a championship?
Tony Karpinski Mar 10, 2014  
As most sports watchers are well aware of, the upheaval of the New York Knicks and their troubled superstar, Carmelo Anthony. Anthony has been a great offensive existence on his teams for years. Scoring 25 a night for his career, including 28+ a game in 4 seasons. When Carmelo came out of Syracuse, I feel that many people felt he was a winner and a leader on the court, who could bring that w ...  read more

Are we convinced Blake Griffin is going to the next level?
Tony Karpinski Feb 15, 2014  
When we watch highlights and -Sportscenter- there are likely going to be highlights from the LA Clippers power forward, Blake Griffin. Dazzling fans with his ridiculous dunks, and big time power play moves on the court. His athleticism has never been a question. He has always been a very good rebounder, with a career 10.3 avg off the glass, who is fast heading up the court, and he's very strong. B ...  read more

What kind of message is Carmelo Anthony sending to the Knicks with his free agency talk?
Tony Karpinski Jan 5, 2014  
Carmelo Anthonys career has been good overall. When he was drafted by the Nuggets in 2003 , I think that most everyone felt that the 6-8 forward was going to be a prominent player who was going to be a scoring machine and a possible champion someday. Melo has never been a poor scorer, by any means. Putting up career numbers of 25/ game. And has been a solid rebounder as well with 6.5/clip. ...  read more
 
Is the old RG III done for the Redskins and their future?
Tony Karpinski Dec 26, 2013  
With all the recent chattering with the Redskins saying they are going to be playing QB Kirk Cousins instead of Robert Griffin III over the last 3 games of the 2013 season. Not just being sat, but being deactivated for the last 3 games. Seems to plainly be much more than we are getting from the front of the story, of course. If he is in fact being sat for reasons of health, all right, le ...  read more
 
Is there overhyping of Andrew Luck?
Tony Karpinski Dec 23, 2013  
This season, Andrew Luck has had various people judge him a bit with more skepticism than typical. Unsure if it's because of skills, expectations, or maybe because he almost lost at home to Terrell Pryor, and lost at home to 2012 8th overall pick, and an unsteady QB RyanTannehill.

He has been throwing the ball with spotty accuracy, hitting 59 % on the season, 236 his yards/ga ...  read more

Do you think Jamaal Charles should be included in the MVP conversation?
Tony Karpinski Dec 16, 2013  
With all the great things happening this 2013 season, with some amazing numbers being thrown around, Peyton Mannings ridiculous start to the season, of course comes immediately to mind and was easily and by far the early heavy favorite as the NFL MVP this season. But since week 8, Manning actually has been somewhat earthly in those games.

Is Big Ben to blame for the offensive struggles in Pittsburgh?
Tony Karpinski Nov 13, 2013  
For many years Pittsburgh has been the staple of a region where hard work and well earned sweat have been the trademark.

Why Nick Foles could better the team, to be the Eagles starter
Tony Karpinski Oct 14, 2013  
Nick Foles, the 10 game ‘veteran’, finds himself in another QB state of affairs this year. Not that there is a profound controversy about the starter in Philly, because we all know that Michael Vick is the fan favorite apparently all the time, in spite of game play. This is unusual for Philly fans, which tend to be pretty nasty and honest with how they feel, viciously honest at times. The 24 ...  read more
 
Bigger shocker in New York, the Giants or the Jets?
Tony Karpinski Oct 7, 2013  
The 2 biggest markets in football cities both come from the big city, infamous New York. Where when you’re on top, you are on top of the world, and when you’re down, you are stomped on by every section of the city that is possible to be stomped from.

NCAA Football Smaller School Key Injuries
Kyle Hunter Oct 7, 2013  
When betting on college football, you always want to look for that extra information that will help you get an edge on the books.

Injuries are extremely important in college football, and there have ...  read more

 
What Eddie Lacy brings to the Packers
Tony Karpinski Oct 6, 2013  
What does Eddie Lacy do to help the Packers heading into 2013 season? He will most certainly improve their offense in numerous fashions.

The Pack have had more than their share of woeful running seasons recently. In 2012 the Packers scored 27 ppg, went 11-5 and were an absolute wreck running the rock.

They ran the ball 433 times on the season, 16th in the league last year, scored only ...  read more

The Buffalo Bills over the last few seasons have been anything but a great organization. Obviously with a 6-10 record in 2012 and a preceding 6-10 record in 2011. Buffalo fans need to go back to 1999 for the last time they won 10 + games.

Heading to the NFC South. The Saints get their head coach back. The Falcons looks to get over the hump. Carolina looking for a big year from their franchise QB. Tampa Bay hopes free agency is the answer.

1. NEW ORLEANS SAINTS - Saints paid the price last year with their 'bounty-gate' suspensions. Sean Payton is back and his presence alone is good for a 3 game swing in wins. Add in new DC Rob ...  read more

1. GREEN BAY PACKERS - Have to put these guys on top. Aaron Rodgers is just too good to lose out to these other teams. The offensive will get some balance with rookie ...  read more

AFC South Preview - Sean Higgs
Sean Higgs Sep 2, 2013  
Today we head to the AFC South to see if anyone can battle the Texans for the top spot.

1. HOUSTON TEXANS - This is there spot to lose. I think they are the most experienced team in the division, with the best defense and defensive player. B2B division titles is nice, but it is Super Bowl or bust for this group. Matt Schaub has the weapons on offense to produce. Time to get this ship to NY ...  read more

 
Sean's AFC West Preview
Sean Higgs Sep 2, 2013  
Our final AFC preview and we head out west.

1. DENVER BRONCOS - Well, Manning has plenty of pieces in place for a prolific year of stats. WR Wes Welker will be a nice addition to Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker. For me, the problem is on defense. They lost Dumervil and will have to make due without Von Miller for a few games. This is still a talented team and should win this division.

AFC EAST

1. MIAMI DOLPHINS - Yes. I am putting the Fish over NE. It is pretty easy to pencil in that other team here, but I am going over the grid with Miami. I like Tannehill. I think the addition of Mike Wallace will help stretch the field and open up the run game. But what really vaults them here i ...  read more

1. CINCINNATI BENGALS - LY these guys went 10-6 finishing 2nd. I think they win 11 and upend Baltimore to win the division. Plenty of talent on both sides of the ball. I think Daulton, Gresham and Green are a great QB-TE-WR combo. Add in a solid RBs and this team can score with anyone. The defense is another s ...  read more

1. GEORGIA - Putting the Bulldogs here with a slight nod over South Carolina. The defense won't be as rugged, but the offense is more than capable of picking up the slack. With 10 starters back this unit should ...  read more

Geno Smith indicates a new era for the NYJ franchise.
Tony Karpinski Aug 25, 2013  
Most NFL fans would certainly admit the QB position in the NFL is the most significant and important piece to a team. And perceptibly the foundation off of how good the team will likely be.

If you take a look at 5 top teams from last year, their starting QBs were Brady, Ryan, Peyton Manning, Schaub, and Rodgers between them, that’s 164 TDs, 22,508 YDs, and an incredible 61-19 record ...  read more

Let's head to Big 10 country and get a look at the Leaders and Legends Divisions

LEADERS

1. OHIO STATE - These guys were undefeated last year in Urban Meyers first year and will look to duplicate that success and have something to show for it at the end of the year. Clearly the best roster in the Big 10. With 9 starters back on offense led by QB Braxton Miller. This is an experienced ...  read more

 
Sean's Big 12 Conference Preview
Sean Higgs Aug 24, 2013  
Here we go with my first look at the Big 12 Conference. Normally we see plenty of QBs here that love to light up the scoreboard. But this season we have only 2 of the 10 teams with QBs that have significant experience at the position. Should be an interesting year to say the least.

1. TEXAS - This is it for Mack Brown. He barely survived calls for his job after a 5-7 2009 season. But that i ...  read more

 
Sean's PAC 12 Conference Preview
Sean Higgs Aug 24, 2013  
Heading out west to look in the PAC 12. Let's see what we have going on here on the left coast.

NORTH DIVISION

1. STANFORD - Giving the Cardinal the nod here. These guys won the PAC 12 Title last year, and with QB Kevin Hogan behind a loaded OL, this team should repeat. Stanford should eclipse the 10 win mark again. The defense is probably the best in conference. Them and Oregon will b ...  read more

 
Sean's ACC Conference Preview
Sean Higgs Aug 23, 2013  
Here we go with our ACC break-down. I think the 2 best teams reside in the Atlantic Division with Clemson and Florida State. Miami could surprise and I never count out Virginia Tech.

NFL preseason odds: Tampa Bay Buccaneers at New England Patriots
Tony Karpinski Aug 21, 2013  
The New England Patriots avoided potential disaster on Wednesday when quarterback Tom Brady went down with what looked like a potentially serious knee injury, but Brady seems to be fine and in fact may start Friday night when the Patriots host the Bucs in Week 2 of the preseason.

That all assumes that Brady does not experience an increase in pain or swelling in his left knee overnight and th ...  read more

Does Cowboys QB Tony Romo merit his big-time payday he recently received
Tony Karpinski Aug 14, 2013  
Firstly, Tony Romo takes an awful lot of blame for a QB who has always put up fantastic numbers every season. It all comes down to the post season for Tony Romo, which is why so many people have such a problem with his big payday. People love to bash on him constantly because he has shown up small in some post season games.

Think about how many teams would easily; have paid that kind of ...  read more

2013 PHILADELPHIA EAGLES OVER/UNDER WINS TOTAL
Chase Diamond Jul 31, 2013  
Let me start this preview by saying I have been a Eagle fan for around 26 years so if there’s one team I know a lot about it’s this team. Last year was yet another disappointing year that started with lofty goals. Coach Andy Reid although the best coach the Eagles have had really had his message lost in 2011 and 2012 seasons. Thus leading to him being let go at the end of the 2012 season. Eagles w ...  read more

NFL Pre-Season QB Depth Charts... Sean Higgs

MLB Betting Tips: 3 Ways to Stay Focused on the Long Run

How much does Kobe Bryant’s new role affect the Lakers
Sean Higgs Apr 7, 2013  
How long can the role last with LA? They have been struggling all season long. Everyone knows that Kobe Bryant is a scorer, first and foremost a scoring machine, he always has been. Something like that is difficult to just turn off as a player he scores, in bunches, as well as shoots in them too, which he even now this season has proven yet again on the season (1st in the NBA).

Which point guard is the best in the NBA
Tony Karpinski Feb 25, 2013  
Being a point guard always will be in my eyes, one of the most important positions in the sport of hoops. As a starting point guard, you are the one who keeps the engine running smoothly, the chemistry flowing, you are the team’s director, and catalyst, the “quarterback” on the basketball court. To be the best, you have to get the best out of your guys, and make them better. And to me, th ...  read more

Which quarterback is the real breakout star of the Super Bowl?
Tony Karpinski Jan 28, 2013  
Colin Kaepernick came into the season as a backup, not expecting to play any relevant snaps for the San Francisco 49ers this season. Alex Smith was their guy they stuck with through thick and thin, as difficult as it was at times for a 49ers fan to watch, Smith was the ultimate game manager, going 19-5-1 over the last 2 seasons, and getting his team to the NFC Championship last season.

NFL PRO-BOWL SNUB LIST

The NFL Pro Bowl is slowly approaching (I know, makes me sad as well). It is still the boring lame game that no one is tuning in and watching.

The players need to participate, at least give 75%.

The Niners facing the dreaded QB controversy....to Kap or not to Kap?
Tony Karpinski Nov 30, 2012  
The San Francisco 49ers success over the last few seasons has been promising. Led mostly by their stingy defense, which have been top 4 in points/game for 3 out of the last 4 seasons, along with a relentless running game. What would most people say has been the reason for their success? Was it Alex Smith’s ability that led them to 19 wins over the last 2 seasons? Using his conservative styl ...  read more

Which of these QBs has a better chance of leading their team to a Super Bowl victory?
Sean Higgs Nov 7, 2012  
Much comes with being a champion in the NFL, or any sport, really. But certain positions and objectives get placed pretty high on the “to do list” for athletes. For football, of course, as expected, it’s the Super Bowl, and as a quarterback, you want to be the man leading your team down the field to win the game. We all know the great names associated with being Super Bowl winning QBs, Tom Bra ...  read more

Did the Philadelphia Eagles put all their eggs in one basket to quick with Vick?
Tony Karpinski Oct 15, 2012  
When Mike Vick signed his new contract in 2011, I felt it was a huge risk. Vick and the Eagles agreed on a 6 year contract worth $100 million dollars, including around $40 million guaranteed. A lot of money to throw at a player who had 1 good season, risky isn’t the word.

Stupid, is more like it. When Vick joined the Eagles in 2009, he was taken in under their wings, and was pla ...  read more

 
Do the New England Patriots have real issues with their new developing offense?

Is Tom Brady part of the issue in New England? Is it possible? Is his arm still up to it? No, I think Brady is still all right, and will continue to be so for another 2-3 years (wow, let that settle in for a second).

But, looking at the picture on a whole, things seem a bit more disturbed. Tom is being hurried, and no QB likes being uncomfortable and required to deal with a crumb ...  read more

NFL Football Betting: Don't Overreact to Results from One Week
Kyle Hunter Sep 10, 2012  
When betting on the NFL, those who are thorough and wise have the upper hand. It is no secret that consistently beating the oddsmakers in the NFL is far from easy. Why do you think that is? The sportsbooks are smart, and they know that they will get far more action on the NFL than any other sport. Obviously the lines are going to be tight on a weekly basis.

Is 2012 a new start for the Dallas Cowboys?
Tony Karpinski Sep 10, 2012  
Are the Cowboys really a different team that they were last year in 2011? Many people think so, many are very hesitant, as always. The Cowboys are one of the teams in football, either loved or hated. And there are many grounds behind that, the Super Bowls, the strut they carry, Jerry Jones? Seemingly every year they have high expectations thrown at them which have been tough at best.

Chase Diamond Aug 26, 2012

New England Patriots The Patriots have arguably the best quarterback and coach in the league. With those two things in place the Patriots will always be in contention. The thing that makes the Pat ...  read more
 
Sean Higgs AFC South Preview
Sean Higgs Aug 22, 2012  
Overall #1 pick Andrew Luck. 2nd year starter Blaine Gabbert. Newly minted starter Jake Locker. And the Houston Texans ~~ Let's get to it ... Sean

1. HOUSTON TEXANS - This division is the Texans to lose. As long as QB Schaub stays healthy all year, the offense should be very good. He missed 5 games, parts of 3 others. The team was 2-5 without WR Andre Johnson. This offense was 3rd in the le ...  read more

 
Sean Higgs NFC South Preview
Sean Higgs Aug 22, 2012  
The return of the Dirty Birds. Saints stumble in. Let's do it ~ Sean

1. ATLANTA FALCONS - Time for the Falcons to take advantage of the Saints turmoil. Disclaimer alert. I like Matt Ryan a lot. He has a pair of great WRs in Roddy White and Julio Jones. He has the big veteran TE in Tony Gonzalez. He has a solid RB behind him in Michael Turner. They are nearly unbeatable at home, but for them ...  read more

 
Sean Higgs AFC West Preview
Sean Higgs Aug 22, 2012  
Mr. Manning has a new address. Can Phillip Rivers get SD over the hump. Does Carson Palmer have anything left? Are the Chiefs that bad or good? ~~ Higgs

1a. DENVER BRONCOS - I know we haven't seen Peyton in actual NFL real-time in over a year. Who knows how his neck is going to hold up after a brutal blind-side shot? That being said. Denver did win a playoff game with a RB playing QB. The d ...  read more

 
Sean Higgs NFC West Preview
Sean Higgs Aug 22, 2012  
Can the 49ers repeat? Who is QBing in Seattle? What about the Cards QB situation? And then we have the Rams. -- Higgs

1. SAN FRANCISCO 49ers - After going 13-3, the Niners can only really go down. I mean that record wise, not production wise. Harbaugh has Alex Smith doing what needs to be done. And that is ball-control and not lose games. San Fran has some nice weapons on offense. TE Vernon ...  read more

 
Sean Higgs' AFC North Preview
Sean Higgs Aug 21, 2012  
Regular season is slowly approaching. Here are my thoughts on the AFC North ~ Higgs

1. BALTIMORE RAVENS - I believe that this can be a toss up between the Ravens and Steelers. I will lean to Baltimore here because I think Flacco stays healthier then Roethlisberger, and Ray Rice is a better than Mendenhall. Now the defense might take a step back. LB Ray Lewis is older, LB Terrell Suggs is ...  read more

 
Sean Higgs NFC North Preview
Sean Higgs Aug 21, 2012  
Here we go with the NFC North ~ Higgs

1. GREEN BAY PACKERS - This team will be on a mission. Already talk in the papers saying how they Giants didn't beat them, they beat themselves.. blah blah blah. Talk is cheap. This defense took 5 steps back last year. This team went 15-1 last year. Can they expect Aaron Rodgers to throw 45 TDs and just 6 INTs? It is about the defense plain and simple. ...  read more

Sean Higgs' AFC East Preview
Sean Higgs Aug 10, 2012  
Here we go with my thoughts on the AFC East - Higgs

1. New England Patriots - This team will win 10+ games for the 11th straight year. Brady will again lead one of the top 5 offenses in the league. The weak spot is the defense and they spent 2 first rounders and their first 6 draft picks on that side of the ball. This team is a Super Bowl contender and if Belichick gets the defense out of ...  read more

Sean Higgs NFC East Preview
Sean Higgs Aug 8, 2012  
The calender says August, and that means NFL Pre-Season action!.... But let's focus on the upcoming season. Here are my thoughts on the NFC East.

1. NY GIANTS - This pains me to write as a lifelong Cowboys fan. But lets be honest. This team wins when it has too. They went 9-7 last year, but went on a run to win the Super Bowl for the 2nd time in 4 years! I have always liked Eli. I thought h ...  read more

MLB Betting Tips: Five Under the Radar Starting Pitchers
Kyle Hunter Jul 17, 2012  
By this time of the MLB season, the oddsmakers have figured out most starting pitchers quite well. Still, even in July there are a few starting pitchers who stand out as guys that the oddsmakers continue to undervalue. Let’s take a look at five guys I think are flying under the radar thus far.

5. Jarrod Parker (Athletics) – Jarrod Parker nearly no-hit the Texas rangers earlier this year. Any ...  read more

Sean's All-Star Game Selection
Sean Higgs Jul 10, 2012  
Hope everyone made a couple couples with my Prince Fielder HR Derby Selection $$$

For Tuesday nights All-Star Game I will be going UNDER the total of 8.5. A lot of pretty decent pitchers on both squads. Even with inter-league, hitters aren't that familiar with these front-end stud arms.

My side selection will be on the AMERICAN LEAGUE. As I said above, I think both teams possess very ...  read more

 
Sean Higgs' MLB HR Derby Props
Sean Higgs Jul 9, 2012  
I have to admit, I am not a fan of the MLB All-Star Game or HR Derby.

I remember watching the 'old-school' HR Derby on ESPN during the summer back in the late 80s and early 90s..

Then, you would have the 'STARS' going 1 on 1 with each for 9 innings. Back then, the "STARS" needed that extra grand.

Enough of my nostalgia...

Prince Fielder +600

Mark Trumbo +550

Five MLB Teams Currently Underrated by Oddsmakers
Kyle Hunter Apr 17, 2012  
The first couple weeks of the Major League Baseball season seem to always bring quite a few surprises, and this year is no different. Playing underdogs all through the month of April is generally a winning strategy when betting on baseball. The NBA is still getting a lot of attention from the oddsmakers, and I believe there are still some soft lines available right now. Which teams are being under ...  read more
 
Why did Peyton Manning pick the Denver Broncos?
Tony Karpinski Apr 9, 2012  
After weeks upon weeks of anticipation and reading the articles and hearing the buzz we have found out where the legend, the big prize in the free agency is landing.

Manning going to the Denver Broncos. The Broncos are willing to take the risk on a 36 year old QB with severe neck and nerve damage, even though he passed all his physicals, it’s still a risky move in my opinion. Bo ...  read more
