  • BookMaker.eu So what the heck are the Carolina Panthers going to do with the top overall pick after trading a mint to the Chicago Bears to acquire it? The NFL betting market looks to be of the belief that a quarterback will be selected going by the odds movement at the online sportsbook. But which will it be – Alabama’s Bryce Young or Ohio State’s C.J. Stroud? Could they shock the world and go with Kentucky’s Will Levis or Florida’s Anthony Richardson instead? Personally I don’t care what they do just so long as the front office inserts a competent player under center to get the ball to the solid pieces already on the roster as well as the ones brought in via free agency this offseason. All the line value has been sucked out of those possibilities occurring, so let’s take a deep dive in what’s left and see if we can’t add to the bottom line in 2023 NFL Draft betting. The following are the positions I’ve already locked in heading into Thursday night. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu The 2023 NFL Draft is right around the corner so I thought now would be a good time to put the current Super Bowl LVIII odds under the microscope and discuss some of the bigger market moves made during the first few months of the offseason. As it stands right now, the defending champion Kansas City Chiefs are the odds-on favorites to repeat and I can’t argue with that as great a job Andy Reid and the gang did to win it all last season. Unsurprisingly, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers od... 

  • BookMaker.eu Bryce Young is favored in 2023 NFL Draft betting odds to be the first overall pick. The Chicago Bears hold the first pick in the 2023 NFL Draft, but all indications are that the Bears will trade that pick. Young is considered the top quarterback in the 2023 NFL Draft class and it is hard to argue, as he won the Heisman Trophy in 2021 and he was great again in 2022. The 2023 NFL Draf... 

  • BookMaker.eu Just because the game takes a break in the middle of the contest doesn’t mean the prop bets stop. Oh no. Like the action on the field and the commercials that cost a zillion dollars to air for 30 seconds, halftime is a huge part of the Super Bowl, appealing to the casual fans that could care less about the outcome. And believe it or not there are people out there who could care less about who wins. Is there a better way for people who don’t know or care about football but want a piece of the bet... 

  • BookMaker.eu It’s the best time of the year for bettors and sportsbooks since there’s nothing quite like the Super Bowl when it comes to gambling. BookMaker.eu has a plethora of prop betting options and the number of outrageous exotic props seems to grow every year. Anything goes when it comes to the Big Game, and it usually does. The Super Bowl is a smorgasbord for degenerate gamblers and it’s also the perfect opportunity for first-timers. You don’t have to be a fan of either team or even the NFL to have so... 

  • BookMaker.eu The Super Bowl isn’t just a game to determine the champion of the NFL. Not even close. It’s an experience that lasts the entire day. From the hours-long pregame show to the postgame awards ceremony and second-guessing analysis, football fans are bombarded. To make things more interesting and to liven up the game even more, sportsbooks go all out just like the television commercials. And what they’ve come up with is an amazing market of propositional bets. You don’t have to be a football fan to guess whether or not the coin toss will land on heads or tails. But you can place a wager on it. The halftime show has become a bigger deal than the game itself, and because of that there are a number of prop bets available for intermission activities. And, of course, there is a game between the two best teams in the league unfolding. That’s where the betting really takes place with billions of dollars wagered on which team wins as well as the performance of certain players. Welcome to the world of Super Bowl props. Super Bowl LVII between the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles will air live on Sunday, February 12, 2023 at 6:30 p.m. ET from State Farm Stadium in Glendale, AZ. The game will be televised on FOX. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu An additional week between conference championships and Super Sunday was designed to give participating teams time to rest and game plan. Or was it? Taking full advantage of the extra days, sportsbooks come up with a wide variety of proposition bets, also giving bettors a chance to handicap the markets. Organizers of the World Cup might say otherwise, but the Super Bowl is the biggest sporting spectacle on the planet taking in billions at the betting window. Not only can you wager on the game and its outcome, but a creative prop market just adds to the excitement and the dollar amount. One of the more popular props is on the game’s MVP, and considering quarterbacks have won the award 31 times in the previous 56 Super Bowls it’s not surprising to see Philadelphia’s Jalen Hurts and Kansas City’s Patrick Mahomes at the top of the odds board. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu I guess it’s only fitting that the two best teams during the regular season meet in Super Bowl LVII to determine the NFL champion. The Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles each went 14-3 during the season claiming the No. 1 seed in their respective conference, though the Eagles had little difficulty earning payout victories over the Giants and 49ers by a combined 55 points. Things were a little more difficult for the Chiefs, who needed a last second field goal to beat Cincinnati 23-20 in a rematch of last year’s AFC Championship game. Kansas City advanced with a 7-point win over Jacksonville in the divisional round failing to cover the 10-point spread. They also had to deal with the uncertainty of Patrick Mahomes’ ankle injury. Meanwhile the Eagles won their two postseason games by a combined score of 69-14. The game hit the board as a tossup before Philly settled as an early 2-point favorite. Super Bowl LVII will take place on Sunday, February 12, 2023 at 6:30 p.m. ET at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, AZ and will be televised on FOX. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu The top two teams in the NFC will battle it out in the conference championship game to see which club punches a ticket to Arizona in early February. Arguably the hottest team in the NFL, the San Francisco 49ers take a 12-game overall winning streak into their showdown with the top-seeded Philadelphia Eagles. Overcoming the loss of two quarterbacks during the regular season, the Niners are headed back to the NFC title game for a second straight season with hope that Brock Purdy can get them to the Super Bowl. Purdy has yet to lose as a starter going 7-0 with six payouts in that run. If the opening line holds it’ll be the first time the Niners are catching points since Week 8 of the regular season. The NFC Championship game will take place on Sunday, January 29, 2023 at 3 p.m. ET at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, PA and will be televised on FOX. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu In a rematch of last season’s AFC Championship the Cincinnati Bengals and Kansas City Chiefs will determine the conference representative in Super Bowl LVII. The Chiefs are hosting for a fifth consecutive season with last year’s 27-24 overtime loss to the Bengals making them 2-2 in the previous four conference title games. The big concern for the Chiefs ahead of this matchup is the health of Patrick Mahomes, who sustained an ankle injury in the Divisional Round win over Jacksonville. While KC has won a bunch of games over the years with Mahomes running the show, they are 0-3 SU and ATS in the last three encounters with the Bengals. The AFC Championship game will take place on Sunday, January 29, 2023 at 6:30 p.m. ET at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, MO and will be televised on CBS. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu The other half of both conference championship games will be decided on Sunday with matchups between clubs that all won at least 12 regular season games. An AFC tilt between division winners has the Cincinnati Bengals visiting the Buffalo Bills. The teams will get a chance to put the debate over which team is the best to rest after their regular season game was cancelled. The Dallas Cowboys and San Francisco 49ers meet for the second straight postseason renewing a bitter playoff rivalry from the 1990s. Winners of nine straight games following a 24-17 decision over Baltimore last week, the Bengals hit the road with wins and covers in each of their last four away contests. And hopefully this game has less drama, at least in terms of player safety, than the first meeting. You might recall the much-anticipated Week 17 contest was canceled after Damar Hamlin suffered a medical emergency on the field. Buffalo advanced with a tougher than expected 34-31 win over Miami last week failing to cover the 14-point line. The Bills have won their last four home playoff games and are a 4-point favorite to advance. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu Both No. 1 seeds are in action on Saturday when the Divisional Round of the NFL playoffs gets started. The Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles opened as slightly more than a converted touchdown favorite in their matchups. The Chiefs look to continue their run of postseason success under Patrick Mahomes as an 8-point favorite against the Jacksonville Jaguars, who staged a remarkable comeback to knock off the Chargers in the wild card round. The late game on Saturday features NFC East foes when top-seeded Philadelphia Eagles take on the New York Giants. Looking to make the most of their first playoff appearance in six years, the Giants stunned Minnesota, 31-24, on Sunday as a 2.5-point underdog. The Giants were the first road team to win a wild card game until Dallas matched the feat on Monday. The Eagles swept the season series and have won three in a row overall and 11 of the past 13 meetings. The teams met in the regular season finale with Philly scoring a 22-16 victory against a Giants club that elected to rest Daniel Jones, Saquon Barkley and others. New York covered the 17-point closing line and is 6-3 ATS in the last nine series meetings. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu You can always find someone to complain about the playoff format. Leave that to the Dallas Cowboys this year. One of four NFC teams to win at least 12 games, the Boys get a lower seed than the 8-9 Tampa Bay Buccaneers since they didn’t win their division. The Boys and Bucs will tangle in the Sunshine state on Monday night to conclude Super Wild Card weekend. I... 

  • BookMaker.eu Teams that are quite familiar with each other take the field on Super Wild Card Sunday. The two AFC games are divisional matchups with the NFC contest a rematch from Week 16. The defending AFC champion Cincinnati Bengals closed the season with eight straight wins going 7-0-1 ATS to claim the North title. After defeating the Baltimore Ravens 27-16 last week the... 

  • BookMaker.eu Let the games begin! After 18 weeks and 17 games the NFL playoff field is set with Super Wild Card Weekend getting underway on Saturday with a pair of games. The San Francisco 49ers are the hottest team in the NFL closing the regular season with 10 straight wins to secure the No. 2 seed in the NFC. They open their quest for Super Bowl LVII with a NFC West matc... 

  • BookMaker.eu It was never relaxing, but at the end of the day, the Green Bay Packers control their own destiny when it comes to getting back to the playoffs. Despite a dreadful performance through the first three months of the season that saw the Packers sitting at 4-8, the Packers are now in position to make the playoffs with a win over the Detroit Lions on Sunday Night Football. Green Bay has won four straight games in order to be 8-8, and the Packers hold the tiebreakers over the Lions and the Seattle Sea... 

  • BookMaker.eu Let me just say that it’s a good thing I had success on my teaser picks because I’ve been as cold as the Arctic Circle on my NFL total picks. I should try something different this week and switch my picks after I make them. Had a used that technique in Week 17 I would’ve been a perfect 3-0. Instead I’ve gone just 2-12 on my picks over the last four weeks dropping my season record below .500 wiping out all the gains I made during a 15-6 heater during the middle of the season. The final weekend of... 

  • BookMaker.eu When wagering on the NFL there’s nothing more frustrating than coming so close to winning only to have victory snatched away from you. That might be a little dramatic but it doesn’t lessen the pain. For the second straight week I hit two winners on my three-team teaser card, but as we all know by now every pick has to win in order to get the payout. Moving the spread or total in your favor should make betting easier and for the most part it has for me. I had a stretch of seven wins during an eig... 

  • BookMaker.eu With the final week of the NFL regular season upon us I think I can now say my NFL parlay cards and picks weren’t very good. Actually I think I said that every week because it’s true. I did get a few games right every week, which kept me coming back for more, but I failed to hit a four-team winner doing damage that even a winning ticket in Week 18 won’t begin to cover the losses. Winning a parlay isn’t easy and I proved that this season.... 

  • BookMaker.eu In the blink of an eye, Week 18 of the NFL betting season has arrived with eight teams still jockeying for the final three available spots in both conferences. Of the 12 investments suggested over the course of the regular season, only one has been eliminated from postseason play – that being the Washington Commanders. As it stands heading into the final week of the regular season, we own shares of the Buffalo Bills +650, Baltimore Ravens +2200, New York Giants +18500, Philadelphia Eagles +686, ... 

  • BookMaker.eu Are you ready for another week of ugly dog picks in the NFL? We are coming off a 4-4 record last week that takes the season record to 41-34-2 ATS. Some of the best bets in the NFL each week are oftentimes wagers on teams that are considered the worst in the league. If you want to win money betting NFL games then you need to be willing to take teams no one else wants to bet. We 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 have just three games to look at this week. Let’s look at the NFL Week 18 Ugly Dog picks. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu Homefield advantage throughout the playoffs will be on the line for the Buffalo Bills when they face the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday Night Football. Buffalo is currently in position to be the No. 1 seed with a record of 12-3, and Kansas City is hoping they stumble so that the Chiefs can take over the top spot in the conference. Cincinnati is one game behind both ... 

  • BookMaker.eu I hit a cold spell on my NFL total picks the last few weeks and as a result my record fell to .500. Considering the juice paid on those bets I’m actually in the red. I have a few more chances to right the ship with only two weeks of NFL regular season games remaining. And I’ve had success in the past so there’s no reason why it can’t happen again. If you bet the UNDER on every game this season you’d have a better record than me since 53.5 percent of the games finished below the closing total. La... 

  • BookMaker.eu Tweaking the spread or total in your favor makes things easier when it comes to wagering. And I’ve been good with the NFL teaser picks this season. However, my heater ran into the bomb cyclone last week, and like much of the country I lost. I came close to hitting another three-team winner but it just wasn’t meant to be. Still, eight winners in the past 12 weeks isn’t shabby. The thing about teasers is that you have to win a higher percentage of the time since the payout isn’t as hefty as say a ... 

  • BookMaker.eu It’s been an ongoing theme throughout the season. I’d hit a few winners on my four-team NFL parlay picks but have yet to cash a winning ticket by nailing all of them in the same week. And guess what? It happened again in Week 16. You can do all the research, study the stats, evaluate the injury reports and check the weather outlets and you’ll still end up getting bit by the unpredictable nature of the league. With only two weeks remaining in the regular season time is running out to hit that win...
