There were a lot of people who were disappointed to see Peyton Manning go to the Denver Broncos. But few were more disappointed that Carson Palmer. The online sportsbook experts were unsure how well Palmer would do as the quarterback of the Oakland Raiders and Palmer did struggle early on. But most people recognized that Palmer was thrown into a game after only being in Oakland for four days. His chances of success were extremely limited. When Manning went to Denver, Palmer's headlines were taken away and replace by Peyton Manning headlines.

 

The Raiders made more news when it took controversial quarterback Terrelle Pryor in the supplemental draft. Pryor has already made his intentions on being the starting quarterback in Oakland known. The online football betting
world is not sure who will be the starting quarterback in Oakland, but everyone agrees that things will certainly not be boring with the Raiders. Even after legendary team owner Al Davis had passed away, the Raiders are still making bizarre personnel moves.

 

When you look at the AFC West, it can be easy to dismiss the division as chaotic and weak. But there have been a lot of changes in the off-season that will make the AFC West competitive. It is possible that the AFC West could produce one of the AFC's wild card teams as well.

 

The team getting the most attention is the Broncos. But this team is more than just the new quarterback Peyton Manning. While former quarterback Tim Tebow was getting all of the accolades for the Broncos' success
last year, the Denver defense and special teams units were putting in huge performances. The pay per head service experts watch as the Denver defense held the team in the game while Tebow was throwing passes to wide open
receivers into the turf. Place kicker Matt Prater was making 57-yard field goals to tie games when Tebow couldn't move the ball. The Broncos are going to be dangerous with a real quarterback under center.


The Kansas City Chiefs seem poised to make vast improvements under new head coach Romeo Crennel. When Crennel took over as interim head coach last season, the team instantly improved. The Chiefs still have adangerous running game and expect to have running back Jamaal Charles healthy and ready to go. Do not be surprised to see the Chiefs challenging for the AFC West title in 2012.

 

A sportsbook review of the Raiders' situation shows a team that is really hard to read right now. The Raiders will have a punishing running game and an effective defense. But without knowing who is going to play quarterback, the fate of the Raiders remains up in the air. Palmer and Pryor are very different quarterbacks and the
Raiders need to make a decision soon to start building the proper offense.


The San Diego Chargers are a shell of what it used to be. The team clings to the duo of head coach Norv Turner and quarterback Philip Rivers in the hopes that some kind of magic will develop. If there hasn't been magic by now, then there will not be any magic in 2012.

If you bet on sports, then you know how difficult it is for a team to maintain a winning tradition. NFL franchises such as the New England Patriots and Green Bay Packers have defied the odds by continuously fielding competitive and even championship teams on a regular basis.



 

As the 2012 NFL season gets ready to start, there are several young teams that look to start challenging the more established teams for supremacy in the league. The betting online fans in cities all around the NFL are excited to get the season started to see how their young teams will fare against the teams that have been winning for years and years.


 

Detroit Lions



 If any young team is poised to make a move towards being a Super Bowl contender in 2012, it is the Detroit Lions. After years of frustration and embarrassment, the Lions have put together a team that is able to compete with the best teams in the league. Even the sportsbook software is starting to agree that the Lions could be the team to beat in an NFC North division that includes the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears. The Lions have never been known as an intimidating team. But with players such as quarterback Matthew Stafford and wide receiver Calvin Johnson, the Lions are ready to put the fear into the rest of the NFC.


 

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

 


The Bucs showed a lot of promise three years ago when Josh Freeman took over at quarterback. Two years ago, most NFL experts fully expected to see the Bucs in the playoffs, and the team almost made it. But last
years was a crushing year for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as the team finished 4-12 and at the very bottom of the NFC South.


 

Instead of getting down, the Bucs started to make changes that built a more competitive team around Freeman. Tampa brought in wide receiver Vincent Jackson and made a host of other important defensive and offensive changes. The mood is suddenly bright in Tampa Bay and the team enters the 2012 season with confidence.

 


Houston Texans



 Despite losing linebacker Mario Williams to the Buffalo Bills in free agency, the bet online reviews for the Houston Texans in 2012 are still very promising. Williams missed the majority of the season last year with an injury and the Houston defense was still one of the top units in the league. The Houston offense is explosive but was destroyed by injuries last season. If quarterback Matt Schaub and wide receiver Andre Johnson can stay healthy this season, thenthe Houston Texans could be on its way to competing for a spot in this year's Super Bowl.




Cincinnati Bengals



 No one, including the Cincinnati Bengals, quite knows what the Bengals are capable of just yet. The team experienced some change in the offseason, but the core of the team is intact. This is a very good defense with a young and developing offense. Look for the Bengals to be competitive in 2012 and take another step towards becoming a legitimate contender.

The sports betting sites
were so interested in the headlines created by the NFL draft that they forgot
to talk about the pending NFL referee's strike. This is not the first time that
the referees have threatened to strike in the NFL. The league had to use
replacement referees in the first two weeks of the 2001 season because contract
negotiations had broken down over the summer.



 



Many of the best
online sportsbook experts are projecting that there will not be a referee's
strike. But the fact remains that there is no new contract for referees right
now and negotiations are, once again, stalling. How much impact will a
referee's strike have on the games that are played in the NFL? Betting
enthusiasts can sometimes forget how important experienced officials are to the
outcome of NFL contests.



 



Game Flow



Referees with little or no NFL experience will have to
adjust to the changes when making the transition from college to the pros.
There are several important rule differences and the NFL has been instituting
significant rule changes for the past several seasons. Replacement referees
would have to stop the flow of the game to get together and make sure that a
call is made properly. A team that has gained momentum in a game will suffer if
the officials have to repeatedly stop a game to discuss even minor calls.



 



Game Speed



The pro football game is much faster than the college
football game. One of the biggest impacts referees have on games for the price per head sports
experts is when referees miss a call or make an incorrect call because of the
speed of the game. It will take college referees weeks to adjust to the change
in speed and, in that time, important calls will be missed or bad calls will be
made that could affect a team's season.



 



Rapport



One of the potentially positive things about replacement
referees is that there is no biased with or against a team based on the rapport
that the referees have with players and coaches. Replacement referees will be
focused on calling the games and would not have the familiarity with the
players and coaches that experienced NFL referees would have. This can be a
positive thing because it can allow the referees to be more objective. It could
be a negative thing because replacement referees would not know which players
to keep an eye on during the course of a game.



 



Playoffs



A sportsbook
review of the games called in 2001 by replacement referees showed
significant errors even on some of the most basic calls. If the NFL referee's
strike lasts until the playoffs, then that could affect the outcome of some of
the most critical games of the season.



 



The NFL referee's association has said that it has no plans
to strike. But if the experienced referees do not take the field for the 2012
season, then that could cause things in the NFL to look very different for fans
and players.
