Many NFL Cities Are In For A Long Year!
As we head into week three in the NFL itís getting increasingly clear that there are some awful NFL teams. This will create some headaches where the linemakers in Vegas, who know the public, will lay the wood against these poor teams. Itís something to consider before doing any football betting.
In Cleveland, the Browns are in big trouble as they are 0-2 and are staring down the tracks at an ongoing freight train known as the Baltimore Ravens. In two games, Brian Billickís gang has accumulated 55 points while relinquishing just six and no touchdowns.
The Brownies, on the other hand, have scored 31 and allowed 53 and there is no help on the way for this once proud franchise. You know that Ray Lewis and his gang have no thoughts of allowing this anemic opponent into the end zone.
In Tampa Bay, there are a plethora of problems as the offense and defense have been awful and the kicking game not much better. Allowing 41 points, while scoring only 3, will not have the fans in Raymond James Stadium I a hurry to buy seats. This weekend the Buccaneers welcome the Carolina Panthers, who also find themselves 0-2 and looking up.
I have to side with T-Bay here, as they have faced two potent offences the first two games in Baltimore and Atlanta and now will host the Cats who will probably be without All World receiver Steve Smith again.
Miami was bet all over the country the first two weeks against the Steelers and Bills and failed miserably for their backers. They throw a party for the Tennessee Titans who next to the Oakland Raiders are the worst team in the NFL. Two weeks ago the papers and web sites were singing the praises of Daunte Caulpepper and now the Miami fans are shouting for Joey Harrington.
Did I forget to mention the Toilet Bowl in Motown where Matt Millenís House of Cards is crumbling once again? Has there ever been an ex-player turned broadcaster that has come out of the booth and destroyed a team worse then Millen?
The Lions host the Green Bay Packers and I am counting the days, until Brett Farve turns his back on his teammates and walks away from the game. He continues to throw the ball to the wrong team and they will get soundly beaten by Detroit this weekend. If you plan on betting at your favorite sportsbook, stay away from Detroit.
