  • BookMaker.eu It should come as no surprise that quarterbacks Patrick Mahomes of the Kansas City Chiefs and Jimmy Garoppolo of the San Francisco 49ers have opened as the two favorites with the NFL Odds to win the Most Valuable Player Award of Super Bowl IV. After all quarterback is far and away the most common position winner with 29 of the previous 53 Super Bowl Most Valuable Player Award winners coming from that position. But bargain hunters should not be discouraged as there are some other choices with realistic chances and plenty of betting value. Let’s take a look at top candidates and values for the Most Valuable Player Award of Super Bowl LIV. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu For the first time since their epic 23-7 Super Bowl IV win over the Minnesota Vikings, the Kansas City Chiefs have finally made it back to the Super Bowl. Kansas City opened as a one-point favorite with the NFL odds over the San Francisco 49ers. While the Chiefs look to have the edge at quarterback the 49ers old school approach of punishing defense with a powerful ground game make them a formidable option as well. Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Florida, home of the Dolphins, will host this eagerly anticipated Super Bowl matchup that looks even in the eyes of the public. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu Since mercifully returning to the AFC vs. NFC format starting for the 2016 season the Pro Bowl has again become watchable, at the very least. And while pro football’s All Star Game is still derided, it will outdraw all other sporting events for the weekend and all other major league professional sports All Star games for the year. It may be an exhibition game stocked with players looking to avoid injuries but the Pro Bowl will still draw considerable betting action with the NFL Odds. The AFC is riding a three-game winning streak since the format change back to conference against conference. Orlando, Florida has proven to be a highly popular host city as Camping World Stadium will be the venue on Sunday. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu History was made last week at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City. The Kansas City Chiefs quickly fell behind the Houston Texans 24-0 early in the second quarter only to rally for an incredible 41 straight points to end up with a 51-31 win and cover as 10-point chalks with the NFL Odds. While gamblers on both sides experienced the ultimate roller coaster ride of wild emotions that were more appropriate for a basketball game, the Chiefs showed everyone what makes them so special and dangerous. Previ... 

  • BookMaker.eu The Green Bay Packers are “old money” with gamblers when it comes to playoff appearances with the NFL Odds. By contrast the San Francisco 49ers are “new money” in that they are back in the post season for the first time since 2013. San Francisco is coming off an impressive decimation of the Minnesota Vikings last week they flexed their defensive muscles. By contrast the Packers jumped on the Seattle Seahawks early and then held on at the end to advance to the NFC Championship. Green Bay and San ... 

  • BookMaker.eu Where is the smart money going in the NFL for Divisional weekend? The Vikings play at the 49ers in the first game on Saturday on NBC, while the Titans visit the Ravens on Saturday night on CBS. The Sunday games have the Texans at the Chiefs on CBS, while the Seahawks visit the Packers on FOX. The wiseguys went 2-2 on the four games last week, although it was 2-1-1 if you got Buffalo at +3. The wiseguys once again got destroyed on totals, going 0-3. Let’s take a look at the NFL Wiseguy picks for the NFL Divisional Playoffs. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu Last week the Houston Texans showed a considerable amount of character in their AFC wild card home playoff win over the tough Buffalo Bills. It was a tremendous comeback win and cover with the NFL Odds that few believed to be possible. But now the pressure goes way up with a tough Sunday matchup at the number two seed of the AFC Kansas City Chiefs. The Green Bay Packers are the top seed of the NFC and will be hosting the tough and upstart Seattle Seahawks, who impressed at Philadelphia last week... 

  • BookMaker.eu Last week was a reminder about how anything can happen in the NFL Playoffs. Perhaps the biggest upset with the NFL Odds was the Minnesota Vikings at New Orleans. Yet another stunner was the Tennessee Titans perhaps ending the New England Patriots dynasty, at least temporarily. Now the road only becomes tougher for those two survivors. Minnesota is at the NFC second seed San Francisco 49ers while Tennessee is at the top seeded Baltimore Ravens in the AFC . Let’s take a look at Saturday’s NFL Divi... 

  • BookMaker.eu Where is the smart money going in the NFL for Wild Card weekend? In a bit of an oddity, both conferences play on the same day, with the AFC games on Saturday and the NFC games on Sunday. It is just the second time since the NFL went to the current division format that the games have been scheduled this way. The Bills visit the Texans and the Patriots host the Titans on Saturday, while the Vikings are at the Saints and the Eagles host the Seahawks on Sunday. The wiseguys went a very profitable 8-4 on last week’s side plays but got destroyed on totals going 0-8-1. Let’s take a look at the NFL Wiseguy picks for Wild Card weekend. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu The New Orleans Saints and their fans have been obsessed with righting the wrong of their highly controversial loss in the NFC championship game last year. New Orleans will be facing a Minnesota Vikings team that did much to redeem itself with the NFL Odds after flopping in 2018. The Philadelphia Eagles are the default champions of the NFC “Least.” They will be facing the dangerous Seattle Seahawks that could have and likely should have won the NFC West if not for too many defensive lapses on the year. Let’s take a look at NFL Wild Card Sunday! ... 

  • BookMaker.eu The Buffalo Bills are in the playoffs for the second time in three years doing things the old-fashioned way. Buffalo uses defense and strong rushing for their success with the NFL Odds. On Saturday the Bills will be facing a Houston Texans team making their fourth playoff appearance in their past five seasons. The six-time Super Bowl champion New England Patriots limp into the playoffs with a plodding offense and decline in value. New England will face the upstart Tennessee Titans who are riding... 

  • BookMaker.eu The NFC West title will be decided on Sunday night, as the San Francisco 49ers visit the Seattle Seahawks on NBC. Not only will the division champ be decided, but home field in the NFC in the playoffs will also be decided. The 49ers can win the division and take the overall top seed with a win, while the Seahawks can win the division with a victory. The 49ers will also be seeking revenge, as they were beaten at home earlier this season by the Seahawks. Let’s look at Sunday’s game and NFL picks. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu Where is the smart money going in the NFL for Week 17? This week is one of the toughest for the oddsmakers, as some teams will be playing with a lot of motivation, while other teams will be holding out starters. There is still one playoff spot up for grabs in the AFC, with the Titans, Steelers and Raiders still alive, while in the NFC it is all about seeding. The wiseguys went 2-2-1 on last week’s side plays and 3-2 on their totals. It should be noted that some of this week’s line moves are based more on situation than anything else. Let’s take a look at the Week 17 NFL Wiseguy picks. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu If you want to win money betting NFL games then you need to be willing to take teams no one else wants to bet. I refer to these teams as ugly dogs and you really have to hold your nose sometimes when you bet on them, but history has shown that going against the public works. We went 0-3 last week to take the overall record for the season to 33-23-2. I advised caution a couple of weeks ago, as we had been on a really good run and it has been tough the past two weeks. We’ll look to end the season on a good note with four games. Let’s take a look at the Week 17 Ugly Dog picks. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu The Kansas City Chiefs visit the Chicago Bears on Sunday night in a game that can be seen on NBC. The Chiefs have already clinched the AFC West but they still have a shot at the No. 2 seed in the AFC so they will not be taking this game lightly, while the Bears are out of playoff contention. Kansas City features the more potent offense led by Patrick Mahomes, while the Bears have the better defense led by Khalil Mack. Let’s look at Sunday’s game and NFL picks. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu The Green Bay Packers visit the Minnesota Vikings on Monday night in a game that can be seen on ESPN. It is being touted as the battle for first in the NFC North, but the reality is that the Packers can lose this game and still win the division by beating Detroit next week. What the Packers are playing for is the No. 2 seed in the NFC and a first round bye in the playoffs. On the other side, the Vikings can clinch a playoff spot with a win on Monday. Let’s look at the game and NFL picks.... 

  • BookMaker.eu Los Angeles Rams visit the San Francisco 49ers on Saturday night on NFL Network. The Rams playoff chances are slim, as they need to win their final two games and get some help, while the 49ers have already clinched a playoff berth. The 49ers are looking at more than just a playoff spot, as their goal is to beat the Rams and then beat Seattle next week to win the NFC West and also get the No. 1 seed in the NFC Playoffs. Let’s look at Saturday’s game and NFL picks. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu The top two teams in the AFC East meet on Saturday, as the Buffalo Bills visit the New England Patriots on NFL Network. Both teams are saying that this is a huge game since they are separated by just one game in the standings, but the reality is that the Patriots are going to win the division even if they lose on Saturday because they close out the season against the pathetic Miami Dolphins. The Bills can tie the Patriots in the standing by winning on Saturday but if the teams end up tied in the... 

  • BookMaker.eu Where is the smart money going in the NFL for Week 16? There are a number of key games this week including the Bills at the Patriots on Saturday on NFL Network. The Cowboys and Eagles meet on Sunday with the winner likely taking the NFC East, while the Monday night game on ESPN is huge, as the Packers visit the Vikings for the lead in the NFC North. After having a really good Week 15, the money moves by the wise guys got crushed last week, going 1-7 including one of the worst losses in recent memory on the Redskins against the Eagles. The totals lost yet again, going 2-4. Let’s take a look at the Week 16 NFL Wiseguy picks. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu If you want to win money betting NFL games then you need to be willing to take teams no one else wants to bet. I refer to these teams as ugly dogs and you really have to hold your nose sometimes when you bet on them, but history has shown that going against the public works. We went 1-2 last week to take the overall record for the season to 33-20-2. I advised a little caution last week, as we had been on a really good run and the winning streak did come to an end. Let’s take a look at the Week 1... 

  • BookMaker.eu Stop the press, the Buffalo Bills will be on Sunday Night Football on NBC this week. The Bills have not appeared on Sunday night in 12 years, but they will get a shot to shine this week as they visit the Pittsburgh Steelers. The good news for Buffalo is that they are 9-4 and in position to make the playoffs, but the bad news is that they rarely beat Pittsburgh. The Bills have lost six straight against the Steelers with their last win coming in 1999. The Steelers are slight home favorites in this... 

  • BookMaker.eu The Indianapolis Colts visit the New Orleans Saints on Monday night in a game that can be seen on ESPN. The Colts are on life support in terms of their playoff chances, while the Saints are still trying for the top overall seed in the NFC.

It is expected to be a high scoring game with the total listed at 47. Let’s look at the game and NFL pick... 

  • BookMaker.eu First place in the AFC South is on the line on Sunday, as the Houston Texans visit the Tennessee Titans on CBS.

  • BookMaker.eu The Chicago Bears visit the Green Bay Packers on Sunday in a game that can be seen on FOX. The Bears are trying to stay alive in the NFC playoff race, while the Packers are hoping to stay in front of Minnesota in the NFC North.

Let’s look at Sunday’s contest and NFL picks.... 

  • BookMaker.eu Where is the smart money going in the NFL for Week 15? The key matchup of the week has the Houston Texans visiting the Tennessee Titans for first place in the AFC South. The Sunday night game on NBC could be low scoring, as the Bills visit the Steelers, while the Monday night game on ESPN could be high scoring, as the Colts visit the Saints.
