2013-12-09

Gronkowski, one of the most nfl football betting Online Bingo Play Slots Online in US NFL Lines dynamic tight ends in the National Football League, will be placed on season-ending injured reserve and undergo additional tests to check for further damage, the website said.

Broncos fan petitions NFL to remove Joe Flacco banner
2013-08-29

In a polarizing bit of set dressing, huge banners have been hung from Sports Authority Field at Mile High featuring impact players from both the Denver Broncos and the Baltimore Ravens, the two AFC juggernauts who will play that night.
And if you think Broncos fans in Denver would take issue with a giant likeness of Joe Flacco adorning the south entrance of their home stadium, well, you'd be right.
Over on Change.org, a fan using the handle "Broncos Nation" has posted a petition calling for the NFL to remove the Flacco banner. The petition, in full:
To:
Roger Goodell, @nflcommish, National Football League
Take the Joe Flacco signage off my Mile High Stadium! Broncos Nation will not endure this detestable and audacious act. Who in their right mind thought that we would just let this fly?! We stand united against your unbearable Joe Flacco signage.
Sincerely,
(Your name)
The Broncos used their Twitter feed to appease the angry masses -- or at least the "Broncos Nation" guy.
"Because the NFL promotes both teams playing in its annual Kickoff Game, fans will notice signage outside @SportsAuthField and around town that features the Broncos and Ravens. But regardless of league guidelines, this will always be #BroncosCountry and we can't wait to see all the orange in the stands a week from Thursday!"
We understand why some Broncos fans would be sour about a 50-foot Flacco. The last time Mr. Charisma was in the building, he ended the Broncos' Super Bowl dreams. Still ... it's a stupid banner.
There have to be more detestable and audacious acts to fight.


Sunday Night Football betting Preview, Vikings vs. Packers
2010-10-23

It’s Brett Favre’s second return trip to Green Bay, but this time he’s more vulnerable with his on-field elbow problems and his off-field sexting allegations. Sportsbook.com currently has the Vikings vs. Packers point spread holding steady at Green Bay -2.5 points.

After torching the Packers a year ago, Favre is still getting his legs under him in 2010, especially with Randy Moss working his way into the lineup. Look for Minnesota to ride Adrian Peterson instead, especially since the Packers are more susceptible to the run with ILB Nick Barnett out for the year. Miami rumbled for 150 yards in its win over Green Bay last week.

Favre has been incredible in his two games against Green Bay, completing 70 percent of his passes for 515 yards, seven touchdowns and no interceptions. Moss (nine rec., 136 yds, 1 TD with Minnesota this year) has also shredded the Pack with 66 catches for 1,243 yards and 12 TD in 13 career meetings. RB Adrian Peterson has also enjoyed facing his rival with 604 rushing yards and four touchdowns in six games against Green Bay. If Minnesota can win the turnover battle (minus-5 ratio) and keep the Packers’ excellent pass rush (21 sacks) at bay, it could be a long day for the Cheeseheads.

The Packers have lost their last two home games and last four games overall ATS. Aaron Rodgers has thrown seven interceptions and has been sacked 14 times already this year. But there is hope for an injury-riddled Green Bay team that was missing eight starters against Miami. CB Al Harris (left knee) and safety Atari Bigby (left ankle) both plan to play Sunday night for the first time this season. NFL sack leader LB Clay Matthews is also expected to suit up after sitting out last week’s game with a left hamstring injury.

The Vikings are 11-8 ATS (7-12 SU) at Green Bay since 1992 and this NFL betting trend uncovered at Sportsbook.com shows why Minnesota is the pick on Sunday night.

Play On - Road teams (MINNESOTA) - slow starting offensive team - scoring 7 or less PPG in the first half, after scoring 7 points or less in the first half in 2 straight games.

(202-133 since 1983.) (60.3%, +55.7 units. Rating = 2*).<P>

Sportsbook.com currently has the Vikings vs. Packer total handicapped at 44.5 points. And after reading the following football betting trends, it is easy to see why the majority of the bettors are backing the ‘over’.

MINNESOTA is 20-6 OVER (76.9%, +13.4 Units) in road games vs. good passing teams averaging 7 or more passing yards/att. since 1992. The average score was MINNESOTA 25.3, OPPONENT 29.2 - (Rating = 2*).

Play Over - Any team against the total (GREEN BAY) - after being beaten by the spread by 21 or more points total in their last three games against opponent after going under the total by 35 or more points total in their last five games. (106-57 since 1983.) (65%, +43.3 units. Rating = 2*).
