Week 8 In The NFL!
The Lone Star State will be the scene tonight for the conclusion of week 7 in the NFL and if Sunday's games were any indication, then the Giants is the play this evening. The point spread is Dallas -3 and the point total being offered by America's most popular online Betting site Sportsbook is 44.5.
This past weekend was wild and wacky with, heaven forbid, the Oakland Raiders doing a victory dance. That combined with wins by Minnesota over Seattle, Kansas City over San Diego, Green Bay over Miami, Tampa over the Eagles, Atlanta over Pittsburgh, and Houston over Jacksonville made for a "Dog Day Afternoon".
This weekend there are several more upset possibilities on the docket including the Ravens going to Bourbon Street as a +1 point puppy. New Orleans is quickly becoming the darling of Sports bettors with their two-headed monster in Deuce McAllister and Reggie Bush as well as QB Drew Brees.
The last time we watched Baltimore, they looked terrible, especially aging Ray Lewis getting pushed all over the field and cornerback Samari Rolle, who looked like he had a bet on Carolina, when he was getting burnt by Steve Smith over and over.
The Ravens head coach Brian Billick fire offensive coordinator Jim Fassell after the debacle against the Panthers and will now try and resurrect the anemic Ravens offense. The best place for this team is on the road.
What is going on in San Diego? One week they are Super Bowl contenders and the next week their stingy defense has more leaks than the Titanic! Mr. All-World defensive whiz Shawn Merriman is now going to miss four games after a steroid infraction and he played yesterday's game like Superman without his super powers.
Why was he able to appeal this penalty and why was the Betting public not made aware of this process?
