3 reasons why the Seahawks will upset the Colts in Week 4

week-4-nfl-upset-pick
Expert NFL Picks - Live NFL OddsBetting Bonus

It wouldn’t be farfetched to say that last season was a complete disaster for the Seattle Seahawks. Although the team got much better on paper, with additions such as Corey Redding, Aaron Curry and T.J. Houshmanzadeh, starting QB and team leader Matt Hasselback is suffering from a broken rib, which means there is a great chance that he will not play this Sunday in Indy.

With Hasselback and others sidelined from injuries, you might assume that Seattle would have no chance at beating the Colts. We don’t think so, and actually see them pulling off the upset of the week 4. Here are a few reasons why.

1.) Colts Have Trouble Stopping the Run

The Indianapolis Colts may be riding high at a flawless 3-0, but there are some problems that lie beneath this perfection. They may have held Arizona, which has little to no run game at all, to under 50 yards rushing, but containing the Seahawks will be a different story. Seattle has a much better run game than the Cardinals, led by Julius Jones who is averaging 4.9 per carry for 226 yards YTD. If the Seahawks can pound it on the ground consistently, they may be able to exploit Indy’s biggest weakness and rush their way to a victory.

2.) Indy is Banged Up on D

While it is questionable whether Seattle has more offensive firepower than Arizona, the team might have enough to dominant an ailing Colts defense. After spending most of the first three quarters in the Arizona backfield, Dwight Freeney spent the remaining 15 minutes in the Indianapolis locker room watching the Colts roll to an easy 31-10 victory over the Cardinals. Freeney injured his right quadriceps this past Sunday and told team doctors that he “felt something pop” in his leg. Team officials are still in the process of finding out the severity of the injury and how much time he will miss.

Unfortunately, the Colts have much more to worry about than the health status of their top pass rusher. Indy is missing a few key players on the defensive side of the ball, including safety Bob Sanders, who is a former Defensive Player of the Year. Although cornerback Kelvin Hayden and defensive captain Gary Brackett might return Sunday night, Dwight Freeney’s injury could create a huge void that simply cannot be filled.

3.) Wallace is Viable at the Helm

Seneca Wallace is no Matt Hasselbeck, but he isn’t all that bad either. He had a pretty good showing last week against Chicago, going 26 of 44 for 261 yards, 1 TD and a pick. While he was sacked three times, Indy’s defensive troubles should give him a lot more time in the pocket, which could give offensive weapons such as Houshmanzadeh and Nate Burleson more opportunities to get open and make some big plays. The Colts’ secondary isn’t terrible, but has some holes that can be exploited. By exercising a bit of patience and getting some help from the o-line, Wallace could drive his team down the field and score the upset of the week.

Week 3 NFL Betting Recap and ATS Standings

nfl-ats-standings

Week 3 of the 2009 NFL season gave us another entertaining weekend of winners and losers. Who covered and who disappointed? It’s time to find out.


Bengals Defy the Odds

You might not have predicted Pittsburgh blowing out the Bengals, but no one thought the champs would lose, especially when considering that they have been dominant in Cincy for nearly a decade. Entering the game as 3.5 point favorites, the Steelers fumbled a 13-0 lead and eventually lost on 71 yard drive capped off by a Carson Palmer touchdown pass to Andre Caldwell. Pittsburgh is now 1-2 and has dropped its last three on the road. Is it time for Steeler Nation to start panicking?


Giants Cover and Then Some

The New York Giants rolled over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers en route to 24-0 stomping. New York was favored by 6.5 and didn’t play around when it came to covering. Eli Manning played it safe, putting up modest numbers while Ahmad Bradshaw and Brandon Jacobs ran over the Bucs defense to the tune of 202 yards on the ground. We all knew that the days of Tampa Bay’s defensive dominance were long gone, but didn’t expect them to be so horrible on the offensive side of the ball. Byron Leftwich could be relegated to the bench and since young QB Josh Johnson doesn’t look much better, it might be a while before Tampa Bay covers anything.


The Colts Handle Business

It seems as if Tony Dungy left the Colts in good hands because new head coach Jim Caldwell has Indy off to an impressive 3-0 start. The odds makers gave Indianapolis a 3 point advantage over Arizona but the Colts were stingy and snatched this one by a comfortable 21. The outcome of this game actually could have been a lot different without a few blundered calls by the Cardinal coaching staff that resulted in points for the Colts. Nevertheless, the Colts remain undefeated while the defending NFC champs are looking like they will have a hard time making it back to the big game.


Vikings Miracle Win Did Not Help Their Backers

The Vikings and 49ers are strong candidates for the game of week 3. It looked as if Minnesota had this one wrapped up in the early going but the momentum changed quickly after Frisco blocked a field goal and ran it back for a touchdown. Had it not been for a vintage Brett Favre drive, the 49ers would still be undefeated and handing Minnesota their first loss. Instead, their records are turned around and even though the Vikings secured the victory by 3, they disappointed in the eyes of the 6 point spread.

Week 5 College Football First Glance Picks and Odds

week-5-college-football-odds

BetVega.com takes a quick look at the week 5 college football betting schedule and picks out some games that caught our attention early in the week. Lets watch the line movement as the football betting week goes on and see if our comments end up being on the money:

- USF -6.5 at Syracuse: South Florida was looking for some respect last week in Tallahassee and they found it by taking out Florida State. Freshman QB B.J. Daniels played very well in his first start after Matt Grothe went down with an ACL tear the previous week. USF has undefeated Cincinnati looming in 2 weeks, which looks to be a battle for 1st place in the Big East. A let down here against Syracuse is not out of the question for USF.

- Washington at Notre Dame -13.5: In last weeks College Football Odds First Glance, I said that Washington would most likely have a let down against Stanford after they upset then #3 USC…..they barely got off the bus for the game as Stanford rolled. Notre Dame has some injury issues and 13.5 points seems like an awful lot of points to give a team you have embarrassed the last 4 times you played them. The Huskies have big revenge on their minds this weekend. Washington covers and takes the outright upset in South Bend.

-Oklahoma -7 at Miami, FL: Well I guess people are jumping off the Miami bandwagon. I told you last week Va Tech would handle the Hurricanes in Blacksburg. Now, with that being said, the Sooners better look out Saturday afternoon in Miami. All I hear is that Oklahoma is still alive and ready to begin a big run towards the BCS championship. Listen folks, even before Sam Bradford went out in week 1 against BYU, the Sooners did not look great. Miami needs to play well for their program and for the ACC. I am not saying Miami wins this game out right, but this matchup will come down to the wire.

- USC -6 at CAL: Keeping this short and simple. CAL got caught in a major look ahead situation last week against Oregon. USC is just not that good this season. The Trojans hould have run all over Washing State Saturday night. CAL has the betting public thinking they are done in the PAC 10 race….not after Saturday! CAL covers and wins outright!

- UCLA at Stanford -6: UCLA coming into Stanford after 2 weeks off. Stanford is one botched play away from being 4-0 this season. UCLA has covered 3 straight games against Stanford. This should be your typical hard fought PAC 10 game that is decided in the final minutes. I lean towards UCLA

- Michigan at Michigan State (Pick’em): Michigan survived a big scare from Indiana over the weekend. Michigan State was taken to the woodshed by the Badgers in Madison. The Wolverines have revenge in their corner after last season’s loss to MSU. Michigan should get the victory here and push MSU to 1-4 in what looks to be a re-building season for the Spartans.

- Alabama -17 at Kentucky: Look out Tide!!! Alabama has Ole Miss up next week after Kentucky. Kentucky just go rolled up at home by the Gators and I do not see them laying down 2 weeks in a row in front of their home crowd. Alabama wins this game, but get ready for a scare Crimson Tide.

- LSU at Georgia -2.5: Triple revenge is in on the side of LSU coming into this matchup as Georgia has owned the Tigers in recent years. I do not view Florida looming on the schedule for LSU as a possible look ahead situation due to LSU being viewed as the underdog in that game. Georgia has played 3 very close games in a row and are primed for a beat-down here. Ignore what happened last week with LSU vs. Miss. State. LSU circled this matchup with Georgia the second the schedule was released. LSU gets the cover and the hard fought SEC road victory.

Monday Football Betting Preview: Panthers vs. Cowboys

Monday-Night-Football-betting
See Expert NFL Picks

Carolina Panthers vs. Dallas Cowboys Betting Trends:

- The total has gone OVER in 5 of Carolina’s last 5 games on the road
- Carolina is 1-4 ATS in its last 5 games
- Dallas is 7-1 SU in its last 8 games when playing Carolina
- The total has gone OVER in 4 of Dallas’s last 5 games when playing Carolina

The Dallas Cowboys opened as a 9½ point favorite over the Carolina Panthers on Monday night but the line has moved down since the news that Marion Barber is not likely to play. Odds makers have adjusted the line to 9 and some books have the point spread as low as 8½. The loss of Barber helps the Panthers’ cause as they have been terrible in the first two weeks of the season. They got absolutely hammered in Week 1 by the Philadelphia Eagles as a 1 point home dog. Then they were completely outplayed by the Falcons in last week’s loss. Now the Panthers sit at 0-2 straight up and against the spread as they head into Dallas.

The biggest problem on defense for the Panthers has been stopping the run. They have given up an average of 168 yards per game in the first two weeks but they could catch a break without Barber in the lineup. Carolina’s secondary has held it’s own in terms of yards, but Tony Gonzalez had a field day against them in last week’s loss. Tony Romo likes to throw to Jason Witten, who is one of the best tight ends in football, and could give Carolina some problems. The Panthers offense has been somewhat stagnant as well. They are not running the football the way they did a year ago averaging just 115 yards a game on the ground. When you throw in the fact that Jake Delhomme has only thrown 1 touchdown pass against 5 interceptions you can see why they have struggled to start the season.

Dallas is 1-1 both straight up and against the spread. Tony Romo has had his problems with interceptions as well as he has already thrown three INTs in two games. The Dallas defense has given up a lot of yards and big plays in the secondary. They opposition is averaging just over 300 yards passing thus far and Steve Smith could give them problems if Jake Delhomme can get him the ball and stop making costly mistakes. For the Dallas offense, they will have to get their points throwing the ball Monday night and they have the weapons to do it. This is a pressure packed situation for the Cowboys coming off a tough, hard fought loss to their division rival New York Giants last week in their new stadium.

I believe the odds makers have really nailed the price of the Cowboys here. They have the weapons to expose a lackluster Carolina defense but will miss Barbers’ production on the groud. Carolina could put up a fight if Delhomme can finally put together a couple good quarters of football. It’s a tough call and I like getting all those points, but right now Carolina looks like a team that can’t be trusted, especially on the road in a very loud, hostile environment.

Sunday Night Betting Preview Colts at Cardinals

sunday-night-football-betting-picks
NFL Expert Picks

The Week 3 Sunday Night game should be a good one as the Indianapolis Colts travel to Arizona to take on the defending NFC Champion Arizona Cardinals. Odds-makers in Las Vegas made Arizona 2.5 point favorites to open the week but the line has fluctuated at the off shore books and there are some discrepancies in the lines posted by these sports books. Most have Arizona favored by 2.5 but a few have them at minus 3 yet there are a couple that have Arizona at only minus 1.5. If you are planning to make a wager on this game be sure to shop around to get the best value for your money (see latest NFL Odds).

As for the game, Peyton Manning and the Colts are coming off a dramatic come from behind victory over the Miami Dolphins on Monday night. The Colts won 27-23 and were four solid four point favorites throughout the week yet the line dropped down to 3 at most books on Monday afternoon. Therefore, some Colts backers won and some pushed. However, after that win the Colts now have a short week to focus on the Cardinals who are coming off a dominating win over Jacksonville on the road. The Cardinals cashed as 3 point road chalk as they won by a count of 33-17.

Indy is in a tough spot as it is always difficult to play two tough road games in a row especially on a short week. However, a team that has Peyton Manning at the quarterback position can never be completely dismissed. Manning has thrown for 604 yards and 3 touchdowns. However, the Colts have been completely one dimensional as they haven’t been able to get any kind of a run game going with Joseph Addai or rookie Donald Brown. They are averaging 294 yards a game through the air but just 66 yards on the ground. Not only have they not been able to run the ball but they’ve also had trouble stopping the run, giving up an average 176 yards a game on the ground. These two areas have to improve for Indianapolis to get a big road win against a good team like the Arizona Cardinals.

The Cardinals too have had trouble running the ball and have relied heavily on their own star quarterback Kurt Warner. With the weak run defense of the Colts, I do expect to see Arizona use Chris Wells and Tim Hightower a little more this week. The only problem is these two have only able to up an average of 79 yards a game in the first two games. The biggest concern for the Cardinals is whether or not their pass defense can hold up against Peyton Manning. They have allowed offenses to throw the ball all over them and have surrendered an average of 231 yards passing on defense.

These two teams are very similar as they have great passing games but struggle to run the football. Defensively, the Colts can’t stop the run and the Cardinals can’t stop the past. So something has got to give on Sunday night when these two square off. Arizona does have an advantage playing at home against a team who is coming off a hard fought road win on a short week. If the Cardinals can slow down Peyton Manning and company, they should win this game. If not, it could be a long day for this defense.

Teams on Upset Alert College Football Week 4

penn-state-football-betting

Washington at Stanford:

Sportsbooks are calling for a major let down by the Washington Huskies as they are 7.5 point underdogs against Stanford. I know this is a perfect let down situation but I think Steve Sarkezian will have his troops ready to go. He and defensive coordinator Nick Holt head up a terrific coaching staff and I think they will have their boys ready to play at Stanford this weekend. Washington is 2-1 SU and ATS thus far this season. They were extremely competitive against LSU who is now ranked in the top ten and none of us will forget how they upset the number 3 team in the land last week, the USC Trojans. Stanford beat up on San Jose State last week and Washington State in week one, but lost to Wake Forest on the road in week two. Who has played the tougher schedule? I say Washington by a mile and yet both teams are 2-1 to start the season. Washington is the better team and Jake Locker has been outstanding thus far. If Locker keeps his mistakes to a minimum and Washington doesn’t let down, they should win outright as 7.5 point dogs. See Expert Football Picks for this game

Michigan State at Wisconsin:

Odds-makers have installed Wisconsin as 3 point favorites over Michigan State but I think the wrong team is favored here. Wisconsin has not been impressive in my opinion thus far. They struggled against Northern Illinois in week one. Then they got completely outplayed by Fresno State in week two in a game that went to overtime. This Badgers team is overrated because they are 3-0 straight up but just 1-2 against the spread as they pounded Wofford 44-14 last week. I understand that Michigan State lost at home to Central Michigan, but they got caught looking ahead to their big game against Notre Dame last week. Michigan State had many chances to beat Notre Dame in South Bend last week but they came up a bit short losing by 3 points. Wisconsin is a running team first and the Spartans could give them troubles as they are only giving up an average of 87 yards rushing per game in the first three outings. Wisconsin quarterback Scott Tolzien hasn’t faced a real Big Ten defense in his career as of yet and I think he will struggle. I’ll call for the Spartans to beat Wisconsin in a minor upset. See Expert Football Picks for this game

Iowa at Penn State:

Penn State enters this game looking for revenge against an Iowa team that upset them and spoiled their national championship hopes last season. The problem for Penn State is that a lot of the talent that got beat last year in Iowa City is gone. Penn State has been playing cupcake schools to start the season, yet they have failed to cover the spread in all three of their games. Iowa did struggle to open the season against Northern Iowa but they bounced pack and pounded Iowa State the following week. Last Saturday they beat a decent team in Arizona pretty handily 27-17. Iowa is 7-1 ATS in their last 8 road games. The Hawkeyes look like a prime pup this week and may beat this Penn State team outright. However, Iowa’s run defense will have to be better to stop Evan Royster and the Nittany Lions. If Iowa can control the rushing attack of Penn State they have a great shot at pulling the upset.

4 Reasons Why The Falcons Will Upset the Patriots In Week 3

nfl-upset-picks

Just mention “BetVega” and collect a $500 Betting Bonus!

The Atlanta Falcons are working hard to show every one that last season’s playoff run was no fluke. So far, so good as the Falcons are sitting at 2-0 after beating up on Miami and Carolina in the Georgia Dome.

It could all be a different story this week in New England, which will undoubtedly be their toughest test yet. Everyone is expecting the Patriots to come home fired up after a disappointing loss to the Jets in week 2. New England is more than anxious to show themselves and everyone else in the NFL that they are not out of it and still deserve to be looked at as Super Bowl contenders.

The Pats barely walked away with a victory over Buffalo and played rather ugly against the Jets last week in the Meadowlands. These are the red flags that lead us to believe Atlanta will pull off this week’s upset. Here are four more reasons to ponder over:

1.) The Pats are Hurting Defensively

Though Tom Brady and the high-powered offense often get most of the attention, New England has always been credited for having a respectable defense. They lost some key guys on the defensive side and can sure use them right about now. Atlanta is putting up 326 yards per game with 216.5 of them coming through the air and 109.5 on the ground. The Falcons have a well balanced attack and it is likely to keep the Pats defense flustered all day long.

2.) Matt Ryan is an Elite QB

Granted, he is only in his second year, but Matt Ryan has gotten off to an excellent start and should be viewed as one of the best quarterbacks in the league. He is a very smart player with incredible accuracy, boasting a 108.5 passer rating, 5 TDs and only one pick. Ryan has not thrown much of the long ball this year, but he has gotten it where it needs to be, which is in the inzone.

3.) Brady is Not the Same

There are many people who believed the real Tom Brady had finally stood up after churning out some fourth quarter heroics in a week 1 comeback victory against Buffalo. Brady is 2/2 on his touchdown-interception ration and has been under fire a lot in this young NFL season. The Jets did a good job keeping him in check but his game play is solid proof that the rust has yet to fall off.

4.) The Falcons are For Real

This could very well be the last underdog role the Falcons play all season. The team has the most weapons out of any other in the NFC South and proved that it wants the crown badly with a division win over the Panthers in week 2. Michael Vick is gone and the Matt Ryan era is now under way. The Atlanta Falcons may not be ready to win a Super Bowl just yet, but they are ready to beat the Patriots and several other of the NFL’s heavily favored teams.

2009-10 Heisman Trophy Watch

heisman-odds

Though only three weeks have past, the college football season has been exciting and the potential candidates for the Heisman Trophy are lining up. There are some favorites on the list as well as a few dark horses that may run up and take the hardware.

Tim Tebow – Florida Gators

As the reigning Heisman Trophy winner, Florida’s Tim Tebow is on pace to repeat and go down as the greatest player in college football history. Tebow has a well balanced attack with the run game becoming more prevalent each week. Last Saturday’s victory over Tennessee was his most impressive on the ground as he ran the ball 24 times for 76 yards. When considering the great start Florida has gotten off to, Tim Tebow could be a shoe-in for Heisman candidate and claim his second trophy. Latest Heisman Odds

Jahvid Best – California Golden Bears

The Heisman Trophy affair has been quarterback orientated for quite a while but Javhid Best of the Golden Bears may be able to change all that. Best has looked unstoppable at times, rushing for more than 100 yards in each of the Bears’ three victories. Averaging a ridiculous 7.7 yards per carry, Best is one in a handful of running backs that may be able to wrestle the spotlight away from Tim Tebow and this year’s stellar quarterback class. If the Golden Bears can keep up their dominance, they may be able to help their fellow teammate secure the hardware. Latest Heisman Odds

Colt McCoy – Texas Longhorns

Colt McCoy was in the race last season and should probably be a candidate this time around. Boasting a passer rating of 144.51, McCoy has elected to run less and keep it in the air where he seems much more comfortable. He’s closing in on the 1000-yard mark and has put up more than 300 yards in two of his first three outings. The Longhorns are making a case for the BCS title and Colt is leading the way. If they can keep it up, he could come away with the Trophy. Latest Heisman Odds

Darryl Clark – Penn State Nittany Lions

With Sam Bradford seemingly out of the picture, Darryl Clark of Penn State could sneak up and steal the crown. This guy is not flashy, just incredibly efficient, just like the Nittany Lions as a whole. Clark has calmed down since his first game where he lit it up for 358 yards, but still has a total of 8 touchdowns and a passer rating of 153.86. Playing in the down Big 10 might hurt his chances, but at this point, Darryl Clark is just as worthy as any. Latest Heisman Odds

Bye Bye Max Hall, Hello Jacory Harris

Many people think the Miami Hurricanes are back. It may be too ealry to tell, but if Jacory Harris continues his amazing play at QB, Miami may be a national title contender. His stats for the first 2 games of the season are certainly “Heisman-esque”. Latest Heisman Odds

Week 2 NFL Betting Recap

The NFL is always full of surprises and this is especially true in the realm of sports betting. Time to find out exactly who covered, and who didn’t.

The Patriots Blew It

New England went into New York as a 3.5 point favorite but had a difficult time putting its only 9 points on the board. It is pretty obvious that Tom Brady has yet to get back into his groove and the defense is suffering from losing so many notable players. In the end, it was a hard hitting Jets defense and the composure of rookie QB Mark Sanchez that willed New York to a 16-9 Victory.

The Saints March On

The line for Saints and Eagles underwent a number of changes before the game actually took place this past Sunday. Once favored, the odds makers changed their minds real quick about Philadelphia after realizing that Donovan McNabb was out and Kevin Kolb was in, giving the edge to New Orleans with a 3 point spread. The Saints had no trouble covering behind the magnificent arm of Drew Brees who threw for 3 more touchdowns and is on pace for shattering all sorts of records. Boasting a high powered offense, New Orleans could be the team that makes many gamblers a lot of money.

Bears Play Spoiler

With Brian Urlacher done for the rest of the season, many predicted that the Steelers would head into Chicago and at least squeeze out a victory, indicated by the betting line that had them as 3 point favorites. Wrong! The Bears proved that they are still solid on defense, shutting down the mighty Steelers in the second half and winning in dramatic fashion via a 44-yard field goal with 15 seconds to go. Steeler Nation is grumbling over the fact that the world champs let this one get away.

Rams and Skins Equal The Under Bettor’s Dream

The St. Louis Rams got close to their first win of the season, but just could not seal the deal. Meanwhile, Washington played just good enough to get in range for three Shaun Suisham field goals to lead the team to a 9-7 victory. With these teams averaging a combined total of a 16.0 points a game, we pretty much knew this one would be a low scoring affair. If you took the under on the 37 total, consider yourself a smart bettor.
