Denver Broncos @ San Diego Chargers – Monday October 15, 2012 8:30PM EST


If you are getting ready to bet on a San Diego Chargers comeback in week six after losing on the road to the New Orleans Saints in week five, then you may want to think about it first. The Chargers were not blown out in the
game, but the San Diego defense was unable to stop Drew Brees and the Saints’ offense while the Chargers’ offense had all kinds of problems against the New Orleans defense. The problem that San Diego will run into in week six is that the Denver Broncos play a similar game to the Saints.


The Denver Broncos are finally seeing the Peyton Manning era coming together nicely as the football betting sites
are starting to see the zip and accuracy in Manning’s throws that they are used to seeing. The problem that Peyton Manning was having was that he and his receivers were not in sync when it came to changes in plays at the line and
running patterns. It looks like Manning and his receivers are working out the kinks and the Denver offense is looking just as exciting as the Colts’ offense did for over a decade. There is a lot more to this Denver team than just Peyton Manning and the Chargers will find that out on Monday night.


San Diego Chargers


Any of the price per head bookie experts that watched the game between the Chargers and Saints could see the problems that San Diego quarterback Philip Rivers and his receivers were having with the speedy Saints’ defensive backs. The Denver secondary, anchored by cornerbacks Champ Bailey and Tracy Porter, is a much
more aggressive and experienced secondary that will keep things very tight for San Diego. That means that the Chargers will have to turn to Ryan Mathews and the running game, which has not worked out this season either.


Denver Broncos

Peyton Manning inherited a Denver team with a young offense, an established defense and a reliable special teams unit. The 5 dimes reviews on the Broncos for 2011 kept saying that all the team needed was a
quarterback to be a Super Bowl contender. Fans forget that a new quarterback usually means a new offensive system. Now that it looks like Peyton Manning and the offense is getting on track, that means that the defense can get much more aggressive at shutting down the opposing offense. It all spells bad things for
the San Diego Chargers.

 The Bottom Line


As much as people want to be excited about the San Diego Chargers, there is too much missing from this San Diego team to think that it will be able to compete for a playoff spot. The Denver Broncos will continue to
exploit the Chargers weaknesses that came up against the Saints and send San
Diego down to another loss.

Miami Dolphins @ Cincinnati Bengals – Sunday October 7, 2012 1:00PM EST


The Miami Dolphins are really not a bad football team. The online sports book experts have Miami as underdogs to the Cincinnati Bengals in week five, and that is understandable. But anyone who has been watching the Dolphins can see the rapid development of rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill and the way that his confidence increases with each week. The only thing that the football betting experts cannot help but notice is how much the Dolphins’ offense misses a veteran wide receiver that can get open and help make plays. The release of
Chad Johnson may have been a good moral move, but it is an obvious stumbling block to the progress of the Miami team.


The Cincinnati Bengals are battling for the top spot in the AFC North with the Baltimore Ravens despite the fact that the Bengals have given up more points than any other team in the AFC North. What is keeping the Bengals competitive is the emergence of second-year quarterback Andy Dalton and second-year wide receiver A.J. Green. The Bengals really are building a quality offense in Cincinnati, but the defense is having a hard time keeping pace and that could hurt the Bengals later in the season.


Miami Dolphins


The bookmaker betting software can sometimes take time to adjust to a team that is improving. The Miami Dolphins put up 21 points on what is turning out to be a very good Arizona defense in week four. Not only that, but Ryan Tannehill struck for 431 passing yards and a touchdown in that game as well. If the Dolphins can get Reggie Bush to start running at the pace he was running at when the season first started, then Miami could have a two-pronged attack that many defenses would have problems with. The Miami defense is still a work in progress but that too is improving from week to week.

Cincinnati Bengals

Cincinnati head coach Marvin Lewis has to see the cracks in his defense getting wider and wider. The

bet online sports experts were wondering if that solid defense the Bengals had three years ago could stay together long enough to compliment the newly rising offense. The answer appears to be no, and it has fans and players worried. The Bengals know that it has a strong offensive team, but defense is needed to compete in theAFC North. The Bengals can only stay on top for so long before a weak defense causes it to come crashing down.


The Bottom Line


This is the week when Ryan Tannehill gets into a shootout with a weak defense and leads his team to victory. Look for Tannehill and Dalton to throw up big numbers for the game, but it will be the Dolphins that walk away with the victory in the end.

Seattle Seahawks @ St. Louis Rams – Sunday September 30, 2012  1:00PM EST


Before the 2012 NFL season started, the betting world expected the San Francisco 49ers to run away with the NFC West. New St. Louis Rams’ head coach Jeff Fisher was expected to take a couple of years to turn the Rams into a playoff team and the Seahawks dropped off everyones’ radar when it decided to start a rookie
quarterback. Three weeks later, the 49ers have shown signs of being beatable, the Arizona Cardinals are in first place and the Seattle Seahawks may have something with its new rookie quarterback. As for the St. Louis Rams, things are changing but the change is slow.


One of the players that seems to be benefitting the most from Jeff Fisher’s coaching style is Rams’ quarterback Sam Bradford. The online sports betting experts have noticed that Bradford is more patient, accurate
and confident in the pocket this season. As a result of Bradford’s new-found confidence, the Rams are scoring points on a regular basis. The problem is that football is a team game and the defensive side of the Rams’
team is still not holding up its end of the bargain. The sooner Fisher can address the defensive issues, the sooner St. Louis can compete for a playoff spot.

Seattle Seahawks


The Seahawks have rookie quarterback Russell Wilson in the pocket and veteran running back Marshawn Lynch causing all kinds of havoc out of the backfield. The sport betting experts are not ready to crown the Seahawks yet, but the experts will remind everyone that Seattle has a pretty good defense. There are a lot more weapons on both sides of the ball for the Seattle Seahawks this season than last season. With the confidence that the team is developing in Russell Wilson, this Seattle team could be one to be reckoned with in 2012.


St. Louis Rams


A 5 dimes review of the St. Louis roster shows that there were some pieces there that could be molded into a good
team by the right coach. Bradford has a young corps of receivers and veteran running back Stephen Jackson has been an anchor for the team for years. But the Rams have had problems in the defensive secondary and with the pass rush for many years now, and those problems still need to be addressed. Right now, the Rams can stay in games against teams where St. Louis can survive a shootout in regulation. With the way the Seattle defense has been playing lately, a shootout may not be in the cards for the Rams in this game.


The Bottom Line

Seattle and St. Louis are two up and coming teams, but Seattle has a bit of a head start when it comes to figuring out how to win with the players that it has. This game will be close, but Seattle should come away with the win.

Kansas City Chiefs @ New Orleans Saints – Sunday September 23, 2012 1:00PM EST


The season does not get any easier for the Kansas City Chiefs as the team heads to New Orleans to take on the Saints in week three. The online sports book experts were not surprised that the Atlanta Falcons blew out the Chiefs in the Kansas City home opener, but the lopsided loss to the Buffalo Bills on the road was a little surprising.
The Chiefs have now been blown out in two consecutive home openers and Kansas City has suffered huge losses at the hands of the Bills for two seasons in a row. Absolutely nothing seemed to be going right for the Chiefs in Buffalo, and that is a dangerous pattern to continue as Kansas City faces a desperate New Orleans
Saints' team.


The Saints have started the season 0-2, and just about every online football betting expert is pointing at the season-long suspension of Saints' head coach Sean Payton as the culprit. The team is playing well, but not well enough to win games. In week two against the Panthers, the New Orleans offensive line was battered and
beaten and allowed quarterback Drew Brees to get battered and beaten as well. Without Payton, the Saints do not have the ability to close out teams like it used to have and it is doubtful that things will improve much over the next few weeks.


Kansas City Chiefs


The bookmaker betting software experts noticed that Kansas City running back Jamaal Charles did not play very much in the Buffalo game. While the Chiefs try to downplay it as just a matter of the flow of the game requiring more passing and less Charles, the general consensus is that Charles is injured again and that
would leave the Chiefs without a running game. The Chiefs' defense also had problems containing the Buffalo running game, which does not set Kansas City up very well to face this powerful New Orleans running attack.


New Orleans Saints


The New Orleans Saints will be taking this game very seriously. The 5dimes betting experts know that the Saints desperately needs this game and that New Orleans will be pulling out all of the stops to run up the score on Kansas
City. The Saints need a shot of confidence to help the team get through this
season, and this game could be exactly what the Saints need to get back on the winning track.


The Bottom Line


The last thing the Chiefs need to hear is that the Saints need a blow-out win in this game, but that is the unfortunate truth. The Saints will keep the pedal down on the accelerator right up until the final whistle
blows. The Saints need to score a lot of points, and the hapless Chiefs are
more than happy to oblige.

New York Jets @ Pittsburgh Steelers – Sunday September 16, 2012 4:25PM EST


The Pittsburgh Steelers are injured across the offensive line and have key injuries at the running back position. Pittsburgh also had to play its first game of the season without injured linebacker James Harrison. Despite all of the
problems the Pittsburgh Steelers are having this season, the online football betting world still considers the Steelers to be a far superior team on both sides of the ball to the Buffalo Bills. The New York Jets are going to find that beating a weak Buffalo team at home is nothing compared to trying to play a determined Pittsburgh team on the road.


The legal online sports betting world finally got to see the wildcat formations that the New York Jets have kept so secret all preseason, and no one was really impressed. The obvious lack of a plan for the use of Tim Tebow shows that Tebow was brought in just to generate headlines and shine more of the spotlight on the Jets. Tebow did not show any particular strength at any one position, and he played on offense and special teams. What the Jets thought would be an offensive plan to intimidate other teams turned out to be a bunch of trickery
that showed no real purpose. It is the kind of thing the Pittsburgh Steelers love to squash.


Pittsburgh Steelers


The online sportsbook experts know that the Pittsburgh Steelers were completely out of backup offensive linemen by the second quarter of its opening game against the Broncos. As has been the problem for Pittsburgh
the past few years, the team is not able to get any cohesion on the offensive line because of persistent injuries.


On defense, the Steelers showed signs of missing the departed James Farrior and the injured James Harrison, but the Steelers still looked aggressive on defense. The bet online experts are expecting safety Troy Polamalu to be unleashed on the Jets' novelty offense and disrupt it significantly.


New York Jets

Jets' quarterback Mark Sanchez did look more confident and accurate in the opening game against the Bills. The Jets' running game also looked strong thanks to the running of Shonn Greene. But the Jets did not show
any potent use of the wildcat that would strike the fear into the hearts of the opposition that New York
had promised. When Tebow was on the field, the offense looked disorganized and predictable.


The Jets' defense was strong against the pass but suspect against the run. Bad tackling and lack of aggressive line play hurt the Jets. It is something New York will need to work on for this week.


The Bottom Line

The Pittsburgh Steelers offer a far more complex challenge to the New York Jets than the Buffalo Bills did. The Steelers actually have a pass rush that will cause the Jets to stick with more traditional offensive setups. In the end, this is a game that will bring the Jets back to Earth and exploit all of the weaknesses the team has on both sides of the ball.
